Trial of James ‘Whitey’ Bulger

Bulger jurors focused on victims, foreman says

The foreman of the federal jury that found that James “Whitey” Bulger participated in 11 murders while running a sweeping criminal enterprise said Friday that the trial was more riveting than any Hollywood movie, with its cast of genuine gangsters, but that jurors never lost sight of the fact that it was about real victims.

“The victims and the victims’ families were always on our minds, and collectively we did the best we could to deliver them a verdict,” said Terry Fife, 49, a stay-at-home father, speaking about the case publicly for the first time in an interview at his Scituate home.
