Prosecutors Say They Found Possible Bulger Memoirs

This article is more than 7 years old.

Prosecutors say they have uncovered two documents that may be autobiographies by reputed mobster James "Whitey" Bulger.

In a status report filed in court Tuesday, federal prosecutors say they found one document entitled "My Life in the Irish Mafia Wars" at a South Boston home and a second document at the apartment in Santa Monica, Calif., where Bulger was captured last year with his girlfriend.

Prosecutors say it is unclear at this point whether Bulger wrote the document found in South Boston. They say the document found in California "appears to be autobiographical."

The government included descriptions of the documents in a list of evidence prosecutors have turned over to Bulger's lawyers.

Bulger, the former leader of the Winter Hill Gang, is awaiting trial for his alleged role in 19 murders.
