BOSTON (WCAX) The death certificate for a notorious former Boston mob boss has appeared. It classifies James "Whitey" Bulger's death as a murder and says he died of head injuries.
Bulger served two life sentences for his role in eleven murders.
He was arrested in 2011 after evading prosecution for more than 16 years.
He was beaten to death a day after being transferred to a West Virginia prison last October.
We are told that fellow inmates are behind the attack, but nobody was charged.
Investigators had previously pointed to Freddy Geas of Massachusetts. Geas shared a cell with Sean McKinnon of Montpelier.
McKinnon is in federal prison for stealing numerous arms from R & L Archery in Barre and trading weapons in Connecticut.
