Whitey Bulger killed during a botched prison break

Hours after being transferred to a maximum security prison, former Santa Monica residence and mobster Whitey Bulger collapsed and died of apparent blunt force trauma. He was "found unresponsive" by prison guards who failed to protect him from other prisoners, after his transfer early this morning to a West Virginia Federal prison.

Bulger, 89, had been on the FBI's most wanted list for years when it was revealed in 2011 and that he had been living quietly in a rent controlled Santa Monica apartment just north of the touristy Third Street promenade.

prison officials refused to discuss details of his death, a sure sign that it was their fault. After all if another prisoner head killed him they would immediately say that, and had he died of a heart attack they would tell us that tune.

The president of the union representing workers at the Hazelton prison has been told that a male inmate was slain overnight at the maximum security prison.

Richard Heldreth, president of Local 420 of the American Federation of Government Employees, said he wasn't told who was killed.

Meanwhile, The Boston Globe and Boston Herald reported on Tuesday that James "Whitey" Bulger, 89, was an Irish-American former organized crime boss of the Winter Hill Gang in Boston, Massachusetts.

Federal prosecutors indicted Bulger for nineteen murders based on grand jury testimony from Kevin Weeks and other former associates. Bulger was the brother of William Bulger, former President of the Massachusetts Senate
