Bulger, who rampaged through Boston’s underworld for decades before fleeing and eluding a worldwide manhunt for more than 16 years, participated in 11 murders, a federal jury found in August. Earlier this month, he was sentenced to two life sentences plus five years by a federal judge who cited the lives Bulger wrecked during his murderous reign.
