1 year after mobster's capture, little has changed
BOSTON (AP) -- It's been a year since mobster James "Whitey" Bulger was captured after more than 16 years on the run. But not much has changed for some of his alleged victims' families.
Family members of some of the people Bulger is accused of killing said they have little faith that Bulger will ever stand trial. They cite his age -- 82-- the yearlong delay his lawyer is seeking, and Bulger's former position as a top-echelon FBI informant.
Steve Davis, whose sister Debra was allegedly strangled by Bulger in 1981, said he felt some relief when Bulger was apprehended, but now wonders if he'll ever really face justice.
Friday is the anniversary of Bulger's capture. He and his longtime girlfriend, Catherine Greig, were found in Santa Monica, Calif., where they had been living in a rent-controlled apartment.
