Bulger’s long ties to south suburbs
The gangster’s ties south of Boston go back long before his jailing
James J. “Whitey’’ Bulger’s name will always be associated with South Boston, but the aging gangster is no stranger to the suburbs south of the city. Long before he became a fugitive from justice, Bulger made his home in Quincy with his girlfriend, Catherine Greig. The area’s most notorious mobster is accused of shaking down a Dedham restaurant owner and burying two bodies in Quincy. Several of his alleged victims and their families are from communities south of Boston.
