Calif. Neighbor Recalls Bulger Showing Temper

This article is more than 8 years old.

Neighbors of James "Whitey" Bulger and Catherine Greig say they seemed like an ordinary elderly couple, although Bulger showed evidence of his legendary temper.

The fugitive mob boss and his longtime girlfriend were captured in Santa Monica, Calif., on Wednesday after 16 years on the run.

Barbara Gluck lives on the same floor as the couple. She said she didn't know their names but recognized them after she heard news of their arrest from photos on the Internet.

Gluck described Greig as "sweet and lovely" and said they would have "girl talk" when they ran into each other.

But she adds that Bulger became angry whenever he saw the two of them talking.

John Weiskopf, who lives across the street from Bulger's building, said he recognized Bulger when he saw his photo on the Internet.
