BOSTON (CBS) – The FBI said there is no reason to believe fugitive mobster Whitey Bulger is dead.

According to the Boston Herald, there was an unconfirmed rumor that Bulger died in Costa Rica recently and his longtime girlfriend Catherine Greig had his remains cremated.

“The FBI has no credible information to indicate that Bulger is deceased. Until the FBI receives credible verified information that he has died, the FBI will continue its fugitive investigation,” FBI spokesman Greg Comcowich told WBZ-TV in a statement.

Bulger is 81 years old. He’s been on the run for 16 years.
