The FBI has enlisted the help of another federal law enforcement agency in the hunt for fugitive Boston mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger.

The U.S. Marshals Service, known for its success in tracking down wanted men, recently assigned a deputy marshal to work full time with the Bulger Task Force, an FBI-led team that includes state police investigators and state prisons officers.

U.S. Marshal John Gibbons says his agency “looks forward” to bringing the 81-year-old Bulger to justice.

A spokesman for the FBI’s Boston office tellsĀ The Boston Globe the hope is that the marshals’ international contacts will help track down Bulger.

Bulger disappeared just before his January 1995 federal racketeering indictment in Boston and was later charged with 19 murders.

The last confirmed Bulger sighting was in 2002 in London.

  1. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for beginner blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.
