Notorious gangster James “Whitey” Bulger was quietly examined at a Boston hospital last Thursday, then returned to the Plymouth jail later that day, according to two people familiar with Bulger’s treatment. It’s unclear what triggered the hospital visit, but after being treated for several hours, the 82-year-old gangster was escorted back to the Plymouth County House of Correction, according to the two people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak to the media.
