New FBI Campaign Focuses on Mobster Whitey Bulger's Companion Catherine Greig, $100,000 Reward For the Mob Moll Greig.
FBI: The 'Whitey' Bulger Case, New Campaign Focuses on Mobster's Companion
06/20/11, Investigators hope a new media campaign announced today will bring them closer to capturing the notorious mobster and Top Ten fugitive James “Whitey” Bulger by focusing public attention on his longtime companion Catherine Greig.
Bulger, who once ran South Boston’s violent Winter Hill Gang and is wanted for his role in 19 murders, has been pursued around the world by the FBI-led Bulger Fugitive Task Force for the past 16 years.
“In terms of publicity, the FBI knows that combining the reach and power of the media with alert citizens is a successful formula for catching fugitives,” said Richard Teahan, a special agent in our Boston office who leads the Bulger task force. “So we are taking the next logical step and continuing our focus on Greig, who has been on the run with Bulger since 1995.”
The task force has produced a public service announcement (PSA) that will begin airing tomorrow on TV stations in 14 selected markets to make the public—and specifically women—aware of Greig’s physical characteristics, habits, and personality traits, SEE VIDEO CLICK HERE.
One of the things the public may notice, for example, is the more than 20-year age difference between Greig, 60, and Bulger, 81. Some of Greig’s other distinguishing characteristics include:
■She loves dogs and all kinds of animals.
■She is likely to have well-kept teeth because she previously worked as a dental hygienist.
■She likes to frequent beauty salons.
■Prior to her fleeing with Bulger, she had multiple plastic surgeries.
Greig has blue eyes, is 5 feet 6 inches tall, and had a thin build when she fled with Bulger. She is known to go by the aliases Helen Marshal and Carol Shapeton. She was last seen with Bulger in London in 2002. The 30-second PSA includes pictures of Greig after her pre-fugitive plastic surgeries.
