(MyFoxBoston.com) – James "Whitey" Bulger opens up about his upcoming sentencing and the love of his life, Catherine Greig, in a new jailhouse letter.
In a recent letter obtained by Radar Online, Bulger said "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," adding that the 16 years on the run were the happiest years of his life.
