James Bulger

James Joseph "Whitey" Bulger, Jr. (born on September 3, 1929) is a wanted fugitive and alleged leader, along with fellow mobster Stephen Flemmi, of the Winter Hill Gang, an Irish-American crime family operating in the region of Boston, Massachusetts. He is the brother of William Michael Bulger, who rose to become President of the Massachusetts State Senate and president of the University of Massachusetts.

On August 19, 1999 Bulger became the 458th Ten Most Wanted fugitive listed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and as such he currently remains wanted for racketeering (under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO)), murder, conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to commit extortion, narcotics distribution, money laundering, conspiracy to commit money laundering and extortion.

In October 2007 Interpol released a "red notice" for Bulger, and he is the FBI's most-wanted American, and overall second only to Osama bin Laden.
