Whitey Bulger Working On Manuscript?

BOSTON (CBS) – Was Whitey Bulger writing about his life on the run during his 16 years in California?

It’s very possible, according to a radio reporter in Los Angeles.

Investigators seized guns, ammunition and $800,000 in cash from Bulger’s apartment in Santa Monica when he and his girlfriend Catherine Greig were arrested Wednesday.

Pete Demetriou, a reporter for KNX 1070 NewsRadio told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 Friday that notes, documents and diaries were also removed from the apartment.

“There was a script, as one person told me, and also a ‘big manuscript’ as he called it that, when they were handling it around and moving it around, Mister Bulger appeared very nervous that they had custody of that,” Demetriou said.

“Who knows what that could provide in the way of information or intelligence about his past life or what he may have done in Boston or what he was doing when he was on the run.”
