About Bloody Boston
When James “Whitey” Bulger was murdered in prison in 2018, it marked the end of an era in Boston organized crime that dates to the 50’s when Bulger was just another thug in the streets of ‘Southie’. At the time, Boston was the site of heist so big it was dubbed The Crime of the Century. While Bulger was in prison in the 60’s the Irish Gang War erupted with the infamous Winter Hill Gang coming out on top. During the 1970’s, Bulger rose up the ranks of Winter Hill. With the help of his crooked FBI handler, his competition was removed, one by one, until he emerged on top as the face of organized crime in Boston.
