The FBI is so desperate to catch James “Whitey” Bulger, the boss of the Winter Hill Gang, they’re doubling the reward. They’re offering $2 million for the capture of mob boss in time or his 79th birthday.

James Whitey Bulger is one the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted” list for murders connected with his leadership of The Winter Hill Gang, an organized crime group in the Boston area. The gangsters are mostly Irish-American though some are Italian-American, and their name stems from the northern Boston neighbourhood of Winter Hill from which the gang originated in the 1970s.

The Winter Hill Gang is most famous for fixing horse races, but the FBI is more upset about the 19 murders James “Whitey” Bulger alone is wanted for.
