Four years after infamous Boston crime boss, 89-year old (at the time of death) Whitey Bulger was murdered in prison, three men, including a mafia hitman have been charged in Bulger’s 2018 murder. According to a report from the San Diego Union-Tribune, Bulger was transferred to a facility in West Virginia from his previous facility in Florida. Bulger’s new home at USP Hazleton in West Virginia prison was reportedly full of gangsters from Bulger’s home town of Boston at the time of Bulger’s arrival. At the time of Bulger’s transfer to USP Hazleton, a Prison Workers Union official told the Associated Press that transferring Bulger to USP Hazleton was like giving him a “death sentence.”
55-year old, Fotios “Freddy” Geas, 48-year old, Paul J. DeCologero, and 36-year old, Sean Mckinnon were charged with Bulger’s murder on Thursday, according to a statement from the Justice Department.
Bulger was beaten to death by the three inmates just a few hours after arriving at USP Hazleton. Bulger, who was serving a “life” in prison sentence for 11 murders, was placed in general population for some reason, even though he was a well-known “snitch”, who’d been accused of working for the FBI while committing the 11-murders and other crimes he was eventually convicted on. Prosecutors say multiple blows to the head by Geas and Decologero was the cause of Bulger’s death. At the time of his death, Bulger was the 3rd inmate killed in a 6-month period at U.S.P Hazleton.
