Get the inside scoop on Whitey Bulger's trial at Mob Museum


Can’t get enough of the Whitey Bulger trial story? The Mob Museum wants to help you so you don’t miss the gory and profane and yes, sometimes funny details. Twice a week about noon (Tuesdays and Thursdays), journalists actually covering the trial provide the inside skinny.

Beverly Ford and Stephanie Schorow, authors of “The Boston Mob Guide: Hit Men, Hoodlums &  Hideouts” are covering the trial now in its sixth week in Boston. Their first blog ran July 9 and the second was July 11.

Did Bulger kill two women because they “knew too much?" Possibly.

Today about noon, the saga of mobsters and FBI misbehavior continues.

Access the link at themobmuseum.org and click on the face of the young Whitey, who is now 83.

The women will be signing their books at the Mob Museum from noon to 4 p.m. on Aug. 16 and make their presentation from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Aug. 17. It’s free with a paid museum admission, but reservations are recommended by calling (702) 229-2734.

Bulger is accused of 19 murders -- chump change compared to the 22 murders our own Anthony Spilotro was suspected of doing.

The difference is that Bulger is alive and could be convicted. Spilotro is dead, killed by the mob, and was never convicted of any of those murders.
