Hazelton, W. Va.- The Department of Justice confirms one of America’s most notorious mob members- Whitey Bulger- was found dead at 8:20 a.m. in his cell.
Bulger was recently transferred from a Federal prison in Florida to the U.S. Penitentiary Hazelton in West Virginia, a maximum security facility. Officials say prison staff tried to resuscitate him.
