In 1974, Whitey Bulger became partners with Stephen Flemmi who was an Italian American mobster and FBI informant of 11 years at this time. It is likely that during the time they formed this partnership, that Bulger’s partner Stephen Flemmi had betrayed him to the FBI which resulted Bulger being caught between a rock and a hard place: supply information to the FBI or return to Federal prison.
Whitey is now 85 years old, and after eluding the authorities for 16 years – he was finally arrested in 2011. He was convicted for playing a part in at least 11 murders.
Below we have a photo of an autograph sent in by one of our readers, Sean Hanks. We would like to thank Sean for allowing us to use this on the site.
A very unique autograph this is, and if you are wondering what the ‘Lucky Number‘ is referring to then Sean informs us that
“He even personally inscribed it with his number he wore at Alcatraz”
