Here’s Why Whitey Bulger Was Killed

More clues are being released as to the reason for the killing of Whitey Bulger in prison. Fox News reports:

A convicted mob hitman is reportedly being eyed as the person behind the vicious prison beating death of notorious Boston gangster James “Whitey” Bulger.

Bulger, 89, was found unresponsive around 8:20 a.m. Tuesday morning at USP Hazelton in Bruceton Mills, W.Va., where he’d been in custody since Monday, the Bureau of Prisons said in a statement. He was recently moved from a prison in Florida and had a stop in Oklahoma City before moving to the high-security facility in West Virginia.

Bulger had been attacked by three men in the general population sector of the prison, according to TMZ. One of the men used a lock tucked into a sock as a weapon and the group attempted to gouge the gangster’s eyes out, the gossip site reported, citing a source. His death was being treated as a suspected homicide.

While no suspects have been officially named, the Boston Globe reported Fotios “Freddy” Geas was being looked at as the man behind Bulger’s death.

It looks like a mob retaliatory killing. In addition to being a “snitch”, Bulger’s cooperation with the FBI was primarily aimed at the Italian mafia in New England, which would garner him many enemies both inside prison and outside.
