The Bulger Task Force made a flurry of phone calls, mobilizing a team of FBI agents and local police who were waiting when the train rumbled into the station. Authorities quietly boarded the train, located an elderly couple in compartment 7, and realized, indeed, they had come face to face with Bulger. The problem was, it was the Bulgers from New Jersey - with no connection to the 78-year-old South Boston fugitive who remains one of the FBI's 10 Most Wanted.

And yet the Task Force remains undeterred. More than 13 luckless years after Bulger vanished, a multi-agency task force of seven investigators is still assigned full time to tracking him. He fled just before his January 1995 federal racketeering indictment charging Bulger, Stephen ''The Rifleman" Flemmi and Frank Salemme,it took seven months to find Frank Salemme in Florida, Bulger was later charged with 19 murders, and is now being pursued by a posse of two FBI agents, two Massachusetts State Police officers, two lieutenants from the Massachusetts Department of Correction fugitive apprehension unit, and an FBI analyst, all of whom work out of an unmarked suite of offices in downtown Boston. No other fugitive currently on the 10 Most Wanted list has a task force assigned full time solely to his capture, though several of those who were captured in the past did, according to the FBI.
"I'm looking for that person who received or made calls from James [Bulger] and could be funneling money to him", said FBI Special Agent Richard Teahan, a 16-year veteran of the FBI who became the coordinator of the task force two years ago. After Bulger fled, he and his criminal sidekick, Stephen "The Rifleman" Flemmi, were exposed as longtime informants who had provided the FBI with information about local Mafia leaders while getting away with murder. Their former handler, retired FBI agent John J. Connolly Jr., was convicted of federal racketeering in 2002 and sentenced to 10 years in prison for protecting the pair from prosecution and warning them to flee before their indictment. Connolly is slated to stand trial in Miami in September on murder charges for allegedly plotting with Bulger and Flemmi to kill a potential witness in 1982.
Task force members say the Bulger family has refused to cooperate with the manhunt, even though their loyalty to the fugitive has cost them. William M. Bulger was pressured to resign as president of the University of Massachusetts in 2003 after he was grilled by a congressional committee about his relationship with his gangster brother. The third brother, John "Jackie" Bulger, a retired clerk magistrate at Boston Juvenile Court, spent six months in prison for lying to federal grand juries about contacts with his fugitive brother. "The Bulger family to the end will not give him up, will not negotiate a surrender," Teahan said.
The last confirmed sighting of James "Whitey" Bulger was in London in 2002, his quote "Every day out there is another day I beat them. Every good meal is a meal they can't take away from me". Money is not a problem for Bulger, who doles out crisp $100 bills from a stash tucked inside a pouch strapped to his waist. The pouch also contains a pearl-handled knife. Bulger and Greig also love to shop, at least 2 to 3 times a week they will travel to the Wal-Mart Super Centers. Bulger likes to read copies of Soldier of Fortune magazine. Investigators located a bank account belonging to Bulger in Clearwater, Fla., where he owned a condominium.

Longtime Bulger associate Kevin J. Weeks had been funneling nearly $90,000 into Whitey Bulger's bank accounts (Clearwater Fl) since he has been on the run. A Federal Indictment in September of 2000, charged Whitey Bulger with 18 murders. Bulger enforced very strict rules over his drig dealers in Bostond. He allowed them to sell cocaine and marijuana, but forbidding heroin and PCP By Bulger's reasoning, a cocaine addict can still function, while heroin junkies "become zombies." He also strictly forbade selling to children. Those dealers who refused to obey Bulger's rules were beaten, killed or otherwise driven out of the neighborhood. To those who obeyed, however, business was good. The Boston drug scene thrived as Whitey and "Red" Shea and his crew arranged massive drug deals with Colombian and Cuban-American suppliers based in South Florida.
It would not be until the cooperation of Kevin Weeks in 1999 that Bulger, by then a fugitive, was conclusively linked to the drug trade by investigators. According to Kevin Weeks, this was something that Bulger had long prepared for. As early as 1977, he had acquired documents for himself under the name Thomas F. Baxter. He had also set up safe deposit boxes, containing cash, jewelry, and passports, in cities across North America and Europe including Florida, Oklahoma, Montreal, Dublin, London, Birmingham (UK) and Venice.
July 2nd 2008..Fugitive mob boss James "Whitey" Bulger has $4,000 coming to him. But if he wants it, he has to show up in person to claim it. Florida State Treasurer Tim Cahill's office says Bulger has about $4,000 in unclaimed property from an abandoned Florida bank account. The bank sent the money to the state when Bulger never claimed it. Bulger, the reputed boss of the Winter Hill Gang, has been on the lam since 1995 when he fled just before his federal indictment. Treasury spokeswoman Alison Mitchell said the money has been on the list since 1998.
It's unlikely Whitey will be too worried about the missing Florida money. Financial magazine Forbes recently revealed he has been able to avoid capture for so long because he is sitting on a staggering EUR50 million fortune. Forbes revealed: "Whitey's wealth is between EUR30 million and EUR50 million. He has shown how hard it can be to capture a criminal, using the wealth and contacts he developed to stay out of the reach of law enforcement."
In early Jan 1995, Bulger and then wife Teresa Stanley spent three weeks traveling between New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco before Stanley decided that she wanted to return to her children. They then traveled to Clearwater, Florida, where Bulger retrieved his Tom Baxter identification from a safety deposit box. Bulger then drove to Boston and dropped off Teresa Stanley in a parking lot. He then met Kevin Weeks, who had brought with him one of Bulger's favorite mistresses, Catherine Greig. Bulger and Greig then went on the run together.
