WASHINGTON – The FBI wants to capture Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger badly.
Correction. Make that very badly.
On Tuesday, the agency took things up a notch and invited the foreign press in Washington for a briefing on Bulger, 79, who’s wanted for a host of crimes including 19-counts of murder. Agents suspect Bulger has been living overseas and stashed money  where he could have easy access.
“We’re hoping again we can reach people around the world and just make Whitey Bulger more of a household name like he is in Boston,” said Gail A. Marcinkiewicz, the FBI’s Boston spokeswoman, who attended the briefing at the Washington Foreign Press Center . “We’re trying to get Whitey Bulger’s name out there.”
Boston FBI agent Richard Teahan briefed the small group of reporters who showed up – less than a half dozen– and provided details about the gangster including allegations by women who said they were molested by him as children. The agency also distributed photos, videos and audio tapes of Bulger, who is definitely a household name in the Boston area and is on the FBI’s Top 10 Most Wanted List along with Osama bin Laden.
Agent Marcinkiewicz said Bulger has been on the lam since 1995, and his last confirmed location was London in 2002. The FBI is offering a $2 million reward for information leading to his arrest.
