Episode One | Whitey Bulger: The Stacked Jack of Death, Boston's Most Wanted

One of the most notorious gangsters in US history, James J. "Whitey" Bulger, Jr ruled the streets of Boston with an iron fist. He was the ruthless leader of the Winter Hill Gang. Murder Kingpin. The stacked jack of death (he did pride himself in being physically fit). The lord of the underworld. As a fixture in organized crime in the east, he a criminal enterprise for decades; sometimes he’s called the Irish Godfather. His status as a FBI informant kept him out of prison for racketeering until the early 90s when federal indictments for a litany of crimes was about to come down -- including the murders of 19 people.

That's when he simply disappeared. See photos on the gallery page
