Whitey Bulger letter from prison released
BOSTON (WHDH) -- In a newly released letter convicted murderer and mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger opens up.
He's talking about what life is like behind bars and what he thinks about all day.
It's a new look inside Bulger's mind, just weeks after his conviction and he admits he's got a lot of time on his hands spending 24 hours a day in solitary confinement.
This very personal letter from the mob boss, was obtained by the website radaronline.com
In it Bulger drops hints we haven't seen the last of his legal battles.
He also writes that he misses the peaceful years he spent in hiding in Santa Monica.
Despite being found guilty on 31 of 32 counts just weeks ago, he revealed that he's still: "Getting things together for appeal."
He then mentions his time on the run, the years he spent on the lam "my sixteen years on the run were the happiest years of my life, and hers" referring of course to his girlfriend, Catherine Grieg.
He goes on to say "if I met Catherine at a younger age, I would have had a better life. She was the best thing that ever happened to me."
Bulger will be sentenced in two months he says in the letter:
"I expect the worst is yet to come. I'll deal with it and welcome the peace."
