Bulger victim’s family seeks to block $25.2m forfeiture

Continue reading below

Lawyers representing the heirs of one of James “Whitey” Bulger’s victims urged a federal judge Monday to reject prosecutors’ request for a $25.2 million forfeiture judgment against the gangster, which would allow the government to seize his current assets and future profits. The petition filed on behalf of the family of Edward Connors, who was slain in 1975, says the government cannot be trusted to distribute Bulger’s money among the families of his victims because it never fully identified or sought input from the Connors family during Bulger’s trial or when his two associates previously pleaded guilty to their roles in the shooting death of Connors. Bulger, 84, was found guilty in August of participating in the slayings of Connors and 10 other people.
