Day 14


Former FBI supervisor John Morris tearfully apologized to the family of one of Bulger’s alleged murder victims for failing to report his crimes. He maintained that Bulger was secretly working as an FBI informant and that agents protected him from prosecution. Also, Joe Tower, of Florida, a former cocaine dealer, said he paid Bulger to protect his operation from other criminals who were ripping off drug dealers.

Expected Tuesday

Joe Tower is expected to continue to testify of his payments to Bulger. Jurors could hear from Billy Shea, a Bulger associate appointed to partner with Tower. Karen Cody Smith, of Maine, the daughter of alleged Bulger murder victim Eddie Connors, may also testify. And, Ken Brady, of the Plymouth County Correctional Facility, could testify about taped phone recordings of Bulger from jail since his arrest in June 2011.
