FBI turns hunt for Whitey Bulger to girlfriendhttp://www.bostonherald.com/news/regional/view.bg?articleid=1346710&srvc=rss
The FBI is set to announce this morning a new publicity campaign focusing on James “Whitey” Bulger’s longtime girlfriend.
Investigators hope that if they find Catherine Greig, they may find Bulger or the whereabouts of his body. Bulger is wanted for the murders of 19 men and women and the racketeering reign of terror he employed to control Boston’s underworld.
The FBI has offered a $2 million reward for information leading to the capture of the 81-year-old South Boston serial killer, who has been on the lam since 1995. The Herald has already reported that Bulger could be dead.
Greig, a 59-year-old dental hygienist, has an outstanding warrant for her arrest since 1997, when she was charged with harboring a federal fugitive.
Bulger, the brother of former state Senate President William “Billy” Bulger, is a wealthy fitness buff, bookworm and animal lover whose last confirmed sighting was in London in 2002, though investigators also have searched for him in the United States, Europe, Mexico and Canada.
