The famous Boston gangster James "Whitey" Bulger, whose biography the movie "Black Mass" with Johnny Depp in the title role, was devoted to, was killed in an American prison. It is reported by TMZ.
It is alleged that 89-year-old Bulger, who was confined to a wheelchair, was beaten to death by three other inmates. The crime was committed in the part of the prison where there are no surveillance cameras, so the investigation has yet to clarify its circumstances.
In the 70s - 80s of the last century, Bulger led the Irish criminal group in Boston, which was called "Winter Hill". Since 1975, he was an FBI informant who was used by the secret services to neutralize the leaders of the Italian mafia.
In 1994, from an FBI agent who worked with him, he learned of the impending arrest and went on the run. For 12 years, James "Whitey" Bulger was on the list of the most wanted criminals in the United States. He was eventually arrested and charged with 19 murders. Boston's urban folklore attributed Bulger the status of a kind of "Robin Hood" that protected local residents and often helped them financially. It is believed that it was Bulger who became the prototype of Frank Costelo from the movie "The Departed" by Martin Scorsese.
