Day 17


Kevin Weeks described how he led investigators to graves of three of Bulger’s alleged victims after he began cooperating with authorities following his indictment in 1999. Weeks said he stood by as Bulger and Stephen Flemmi killed three people on separate occasions in the early 1980s, then helped bury the bodies. Weeks also had an expletive-laden exchange with Bulger after he called the gangster a “rat.”

Expected Wednesday

Jurors are slated to hear from Ann Marie Mires, a former forensic anthropologist with the state medical examiner’s office, who identified the remains of some of Bulger’s alleged victims who were buried in unmarked graves. Some of the victims had their teeth removed before burial. Mires was forced from her job in 2009 amid controversy after at least two occasions in which incomplete remains were released from her office for burial.
