Incompetence helped set stage for Whitey Bulger’s prison murder, watchdog report says

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -A U.S. Justice Department review found that prison officials incompetently handled the 2018 transfer of Boston mobster and former FBI informant James “Whitey” Bulger to the West Virginia prison where he was beaten to death within a day of his arrival. The department’s Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, said in an internal report released on Wednesday that “bureaucratic incompetence” and “serious job performance” failures led the federal Bureau of Prisons to improperly transfer Bulger, a wheelchair-bound 89-year-old inmate with a life-threatening heart condition to the U.S. Penitentiary in Hazelton, West Virginia. Bulger, who lived a double life as a mobster and a secret FBI informant before he fled Boston and lived on the run for 16 years, was found bludgeoned to death inside his cell on Oct. 30, 2018, less than 24 hours after his arrival.
