Authorities Contact Canadian Bookstores About FBI Fugitive Whitey Bulger

Whitey Bulger

The FBI’s Top Ten Fugitive James “Whitey” Bulger of Boston may be a cold and calculated killer, but apparently he does like literature.

The Boston Globe reports authorities last week circulated posters of Bulger, 80, and his girlfriend Catherine Greig, 59, at bookstores around the ocean front city of Victoria in British Columbia. He is known to be an avid reader with an interest in history.

“It’s just part of our outreach to locate where Bulger might be,” Gail Marcinkiewicz, a spokeswoman for the FBI in Boston told the Globe.

She told the Globe that the FBI has no specific information about Bulger. “Whitey could probably be anywhere. We’re just trying to reach all logical places.”

The Globe reported that a manager of a Victoria bookstore “said authorities had visited just about every bookstore in the city last week and asked employees to be on the lookout for Bulger.”

“They came in and just gave us a wanted poster and asked us if we recognized him because he’s known to be a book reader,” he said, according to the Globe.

Bulger is accused in 19 murders and has been on the run for more than 15 years. T
