BOSTON (AP) – Relatives of the murder victims at the center of the case against Boston gangster James “Whitey” Bulger are expressing relief and frustration at the verdict.
Bulger was convicted of racketeering Monday of most counts. The jury concluded that prosecutors proved he was involved in 11 murders but didn’t prove the same in seven others. The panel couldn’t agree on one killing.
Patricia Donahue says it was a relief to see Bulger convicted in the murder of her husband, Michael Donahue. Her son calls it bittersweet but says he was happy that someone had finally been convicted.
Steve Davis is the brother of Deborah Davis. Her killing is the one in which jurors reached no conclusion about Bulger’s involvement.
He says he’s still “stuck in the middle,” like he has been for 32 years.
