Alleged victim's brother calls Bulger coward, liar
QUINCY, MA -- The brother of a Massachusetts fisherman allegedly tortured and killed by James "Whitey" Bulger is calling the notorious fugitive a "liar" and "coward."
Christopher McIntyre says Bulger claimed authorities would never take him alive. McIntyre is the younger brother of John McIntyre of Quincy, killed in 1984.
Bulger, who is accused of 19 killings, was arrested Wednesday in California.
McIntyre said Thursday that Bulger "should have stuck a gun in his mouth," adding "he had no problem doing it to other people."
A federal judge in 2006 ordered the Justice Department to pay more than $3 million to settle the McIntyre family's claim that he was killed after an FBI agent tipped Bulger that McIntyre was an informant.
McIntyre says his family plans to attend Bulger's court proceedings once he returns to Boston.
