Prosecutors plan to use two memoirs that may have been written by alleged mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger when he is tried on charges of participating in 19 murders.
Prosecutors say it’s unclear whether Bulger wrote the manuscript My Life in the Irish Mafia Wars found in 1995 at his Boston home, report the Associated Press, the Boston Globe and the Boston Herald. The second document, found at the California apartment where Bulger was living with his girlfriend, “appears to be autobiographical,” prosecutors say in a court status report.
The documents were included on a list of potential evidence.
Bulger’s girlfriend, Catherine Greig, is expected to plead guilty today for helping Bulger evade arrest during 16 years on the lam. Under the agreement, she will have to give up any profits earned through sale of her life story, CNN reports.
