SANTA MONICA, CALIF. (CBS) – “A perfect place to blend in” is how WBZ-TV Chief Correspondent Joe Shorsleeve describes the California neighborhood that Whitey Bulger called home for the last 15 years.
On the same day Bulger appeared in Federal court in Boston, neighbor, Denise Walsh remembered talking to him almost daily. Walsh said she’d often stop and talk to Bulger while walking her dog.
“He loved Whitey, he was really attracted to him,” she said of her dog. “I guess he’s not a real good judge of character.”

Frank Quinn, formerly of Dedham, also lives in Santa Monica.
It’s just crazy to think I’ve probably driven by here a hundred times,” said Quinn.
To think that Whitey lived in this house here, unbelievable.
The place is just a stone’s throw from the beach, which, as Joe Shortsleeve points out, is just like the place where Bulger grew up.
