Families Of Alleged Bulger Victims Prepare Impact Statements

By Karen Anderson, WBZ-TV

BOSTON (CBS) – Families who have suffered for years while Whitey Bulger and his girlfriend Catherine Greig, were on the run, will be speaking out in court tomorrow.

Steven Davis, who says Bulger killed his sister Debbie, and Patricia Donahue, who says Bulger killed her husband Michael, are both planning to tell the judge about their years of pain.

The families have been invited to give victim’s impact statements after Greig pleads guilty to three charges: one charge of harboring a fugitive, and two charges of identity fraud.

The families say Catherine Greig caused them years of suffering while she shielded Bulger from police. Bulger was on the FBI’s most wanted list and is charged with 19 murders. They were arrested in California last summer while living under the names Charles and Carol Gasko.

Greig is not cooperating with the US Attorney’s office. In exchange for her plea, Greig will not face any other charges in connection with the case and the families were told she will not have to testify against Bulger.
