Whitey Bulger, the notorious mobster, was found dead on October 30th, 2018. The reign of the man who occupied the FBI’s Most Wanted list, has finally seen his end.  Bulger, 89-years-old, was serving two life sentences + five years. Bulger was placed in general population, despite his high profile – which ultimately cost him his life. His life sentence became a death sentence – the person/people who killed him used a sock with a padlock inside, and some even reported that he was tortured in the ways that the mob used to do. It was a brutal death no doubt. Although this isn’t the only brutality that Bulger has seen, he was involved in 11 known murders – and 18 mob related killings. His gruesome murders gave him a reputation, and some have even said “unfathomable.”

One of the most notable of his victims was McGonagle, a rival of his. He buried McGonagle’s body near a river in a 3 foot grave. It was reported that every time that Bulger passed by the grave of his rival, he would say “Drink up, Paulie.”

He kept himself hidden for 16 years with his significant other, and often referred to this time period as his honeymoon. He was finally caught in 2011, which ended the reign of the mobster. He died at the age of 89, serving many many years before his death. His brutal life inspired a Jack Nicholson movie, “The Departed”. It was often stated that he loved the life he lived and had no regrets.
