Federal officials would not provide the location Monday of James “Whitey” Bulger, who was rushed to a Boston hospital a day earlier after complaining of chest pains. A spokeswoman for the US attorney’s office said she could not discuss a defendant’s health condition. Bulger, 83, was brought to Boston Medical Center at 1:48 a.m. Sunday, according to fire officials in Plymouth, where he is being held. Bulger has for decades suffered from a common ailment that requires him to take medications to treat high blood pressure and improve blood flow to the heart.
