The first defense witness in the trial of Boston mobster James "Whitey" Bulger returns to the stand for cross examination Tuesday.

Robert Fitzpatrick — a former FBI agent who testified he once tried to dump Bulger as an FBI informant — faced a scathing cross-examination Monday that at one point took a strange detour from South Boston and Bulger's alleged crimes to Memphis in 1968.
