‘Whitey’ Bulger trial

Bulger jurors told of human toll

The night began with a celebration of her 23d birthday. Then Diane Sussman de Tennen and her boyfriend left the café near the old Boston Garden where he was a bartender to catch a ride home in a co-worker’s brand new Mercedes.

“We were at a stoplight, and all of a sudden there was this noise, this continuing stream of noise, gunfire, [like] rocks throwing,” said de Tennen, her voice cracking as she told jurors at James “Whitey” Bulger’s racketeering trial in US District Court in Boston about the assault 40 years ago.
