Whitey Bulger’s arrest almost ended in a deadly standoff with FBI agents after the notorious mob boss refused to get on his knees because he ‘didn’t want to get his pants dirty’, a new book has revealed. 

The Boston underworld kingpin was finally captured in Santa Monica with girlfriend Catherine Greig in June 2011 after being on the run for 16 years. 

Details of his capture and subsequent death in jail are laid bare in a new book, Hunting Whitey: The Inside Story of the Capture & Killing of America’s Most Wanted Crime Boss, by Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge, due for release on Tuesday.  

An excerpt obtained by the New York Post reveals how Bulger remained defiant even as feds armed with multiple automatic weapons closed in on the then 81-year-old in the garage of his apartment complex.

Bulger, who had been on the run for 16 years, managed to go undetected with girlfriend Catherine Greig (right)  by posing an elderly couple under the names of Charles and Carol Gasko

FBI agents were finally able to corner Bulger with the help of Josh Bond, the manager of Princess Eugenia Apartments, where the fugitive had been hiding.

Bulger and Greig had managed to go undetected for years by posing as an elderly couple under the names of Charles and Carol Gasko.

When authorities descended on the apartment building on June 21, Special Agent Scott Garriola had located the couple’s storage locker in the garage before hatching a plan to stage a break-in in hopes of luring him downstairs.  

Using a set of bolt cutters, Garriola cut the lock off the storage unit, before instructing Bond to call Bulger and notify him of the supposed robbery. 

The couple were found hiding out at Princess Eugenia Apartments in Santa Monica in June 2011

Initially, Bond didn’t get a response, but Greig rang moments later returning his call.

‘Do you want me to call police or meet me down in the garage?’ Bond asked. 

‘Then Whitey Bulger himself stepped out of the apartment in his white hat and took the elevator down to the garage,’ the book states.

As he arrived, Bulger was immediately greeted by a swarm of heavily armed men aiming machine guns at him.  

In a letter describing the scene included in the book, Bulger admits he noticed something ‘wasn’t right’ after seeing colored pieces of tape on the ground, ‘as if to mark positions like on a stage’. 

FBI agents immediately ordered him to get on his knees, but Bulger refused after seeing a small pool of oil on the ground.  

‘They were screaming, “We will shoot,” and I responded, “Go ahead . . . I’m not kneeling down in the oil,” Bulger recalled,’ the book states. 

 ‘I told them that there was a clean place to my right and for him to take two steps to the right to that area and then I’d comply’.

According to the book, Garriola at that moment feared the arrest would escalate into a deadly standoff or a police chase, if Bulger did not obey. 

Bulger was brutally beaten to death in October 2018 by inmates in his cell at U.S. Penitentiary Hazelton in West Virginia. He was 89 

Bulger (pictured in 1959) was the notorious head of the Irish mob who led a decades-long reign of terror in south Boston from the 1970s to ’90s

But Bulger eventually ‘moved two steps to the side’, before finally surrendering.

Bulger, who at the time was one of the FBI’s most-wanted criminals, was sentenced to life in prison for his role in 11 gangland killings.

More than $822,000 and 30 guns were found hidden in the walls of the couple’s rent-controlled apartment.  

At the time of his arrest, it was revealed FBI agents had been tipped off by a woman named Anna Bjornsdotti, from Reykjavik, Iceland.

She is said to have become friendly with Greig after the two women took a shared interest in a local stray cat. 

Details of his capture and subsequent death in jail are laid bare in new book due for release on May 26 

Just days before the arrest, the FBI had bought 350 time slots during daytime TV shows to air public service announcements about the pair, aimed at female viewers who might have seen Greig. 

Bjornsdotti would come forward days later, calling in with the address of Bulger and Greig’s apartment. 

Bulger was the notorious head of the Irish mob who led a decades-long reign of terror in south Boston from the 1970s to the ’90s. 

In 2013, he was convicted of a slew of crimes, including at least 11 murders and was sentenced to life behind bars. 

Bulger was brutally beaten to death in October 2018 by inmates in his cell at U.S. Penitentiary Hazelton in West Virginia less than 24 hours after he was transferred to the facility. 

They brutally attacked the wheelchair-bound Bulger, beat him with a lock in a sock, tried to gouge out the mobster’s eyes with a shiv and attempted to cut out his tongue.  

His body was found wrapped in a sheet 12 hours later by prison officers, who said the gangster was hardly recognizable.

Arsenal ace Sead Kolasinac’s wife held by police at airport for bringing a stun gun into the UK – The Sun

THE Wag held for bringing a stun gun into the UK was the wife of Arsenal’s Sead Kolasinac.

Anxious Bella Kolasinac, 27, bought the weapon for ­protection following a knife attack on her husband and Gunners team-mate Mesut Ozil in the street last year.


Security fears saw her flee to Germany soon after and she obtained a legal permit there to carry an “electro shocker”.

But she did not realise the powerful device was illegal in Britain — and yesterday The Sun told how she was held by Border Force officers at London Biggin Hill Airport when it was found in her luggage.

Bella sobbed she had bought the device for self- defence and said she had sought permission to import it.

'MISUNDERSTANDING'

She could have been jailed for six months for importing a banned weapon but was let off with a caution after the flight from Frankfurt on Sunday.

A spokesman for Kolasinac, 26, said: “It was all a misunderstanding. The electro shocker was still in its packaging and didn’t have any batteries.

“Bella was able to prove she sent emails to the flight operators to make sure she could import it.

“Unfortunately, she was in the air with her phone off when she received an email saying the device was illegal.



“The airline had informed customs officers that she had the shocker before the plane landed.

“She didn’t declare it because she didn’t think she had done anything wrong. These devices can be carried legally in a bag in ­Germany if the owner has a permit.

"She’s obviously very ­security conscious after what happened to Sead and Mesut.”

German-born defender Kola­sinac bravely tackled two ­helmeted robbers who pounced on Ozil’s Mercedes 4×4 in ­Golders Green, North London, last July.

The unarmed player suffered slight cuts as he stood up to one of the thugs, who was armed with a foot-long spike.

Both attackers admitted robbery and one got ten years’ jail.

An Arsenal official said of the stun gun: “This is a private matter and we will not be commenting.”

Kolasinac’s spokesman denied a cosh was also in Bella’s baggage.

Husband pleads for return of wife who went missing on Mother’s Day

The husband of a Colorado woman who went missing on Mother’s Day pleaded for her return in a video posted to Facebook Sunday.

“Oh Suzanne,” Barry Morphew begins the short clip, “if anyone is out there that can hear this, that has you — please we’ll do whatever it takes to bring you back.”

“We love you. We miss you. Your girls need you,” he said.

His wife, 49-year-old Suzanne Morphew, never returned to the family’s Maysville home last Sunday after going for a bike ride, authorities have said.

Barry, who’s reportedly already offering $100,000 for tips leading to the safe return of his wife, said Sunday he’s willing to give “however much they want” to her potential captors.

“No questions asked …I will do whatever it takes to get you back. Honey I love you. I want you back so bad.”

Barry was reportedly in Denver when his wife was reported missing by a neighbor.

He has been cooperating with authorities investigating the case, Chaffee County Sheriff John Spezze told reporters Friday, according to Denver’s local ABC affiliate.

Christopher Reeve's son Will appears on GMA with no pants on

‘At least put on sweatpants!’ Superman star Christopher Reeve’s son Will appears on GMA with NO PANTS on after failing to realize that his bare legs and boxers could be seen on camera

  • ABC reporter Will Reeve, 27, filmed a segment for GMA at home on Tuesday during which he talked about using drones to deliver prescriptions 
  • Will wore a suit jacket and shirt for the segment, but failed to put on any pants 
  • He apparently did not realize that his bare legs and boxers were in the shot  
  • At the start of the interview, GMA’s graphics covered up his legs, but as the hit continued the graphics moved to reveal his state of undress 
  • The clip has gone viral on social media with thousands of people expressing their amusement over the sartorial mistake 
  • Will is the son of late Superman star Christopher, who passed away in 2004 at the age of 52, nine years after he was paralyzed in an equestrian accident  

A Good Morning America reporter became the butt of a national joke after he appeared on the popular show without any pants on, apparently totally unaware that his bare legs and boxer shorts could be seen on camera. 

Will Reeve, who is the son of late Superman star Christopher Reeve, filmed a live segment for the morning show from his home on Tuesday morning, during which he discussed a new initiative that will see drones being used to deliver prescriptions to elderly people. 

However, many viewers found themselves unable to concentrate on the story after it became very apparent that Will, 27, was filming the show without any pants on – despite going to the effort of dressing up in a smart grey suit jacket and blue shirt. 

Whoops! Will Reeve, an ABC News reporter and son of late Superman star Christopher Reeve, was caught filming for GMA with no pants on 

Business on the top… The 27-year-old correspondent dressed up his top half in a suit jacket and shirt, but failed to realize that his bare legs and boxers were visible on camera 

Distracting: Will appeared on the show to discuss an initiative that will see drones delivering prescriptions to elderly people – but his sartorial mishap stole the show 

At the start of the segment, during his conversation with anchor Amy Robach, Will’s legs were covered up with the GMA graphics that run across the bottom of the screen, which read: ‘Pharmacies of the future, using drones to deliver prescriptions to patients.’ 

However, when the camera cut out of the two-person shot and focused on Will solo, his bare thigh and black boxer shorts became clearly visible. 

The ABC News reporter seemed blissfully unaware of the issue, and carried on his report with gusto, telling Amy, ‘What is an innovative, high-tech way to get people their medicine quickly while promoting social distancing? Drones!’ 

But the drones were the last thing on most viewers’ minds as Will continued speaking, even moving his leg up at one point to show off even more of his bare thigh. 

While Will seemed totally ignorant about his sartorial error however, Buzzfeed News caught Amy making a rather startled expression as the cameras returned to her and Michael Strahan in the studio – perhaps a sign that she caught sight of his rather risque outfit choice. 

Whether or not Amy was aware of Will’s oh-so casual quarantine wardrobe, there is no doubt that thousands of viewers spotted the error, with dozens taking to social media to share their amusement over the incident. 

‘No Pants Tuesday on @GMA I assume,’ one person commented, while sharing a cry-laugh emoji. 

‘Hey guys, guess some men don’t wear pants during social distancing!’ another chimed in, before adding: ‘Boxer briefs are cool!’ 

Indeed, the majority of people who caught sight of the hilarious mishap praised Will for providing them with such much-needed entertainment, with one person writing: ‘To the @GMA reporter who forgot to wear pants for this morning’s broadcast: you are officially the most relatable person on television and my new favorite news anchor.’  

Many offered words of empathy for Will, with some noting that they would probably have found themselves in a similar situation. 

‘I cannot stop thinking about the GMA reporter who thought nobody could see he wasn’t wearing pants. Would 100% happen to me,’ one Twitter user wrote. 

Another urged GMA to ‘support’ its reporters’ decision to go pant-less on-air. 

‘@GMA if your reporters don’t want to wear pants while working from home SUPPORT THEM! All y’all are working from home some not wearing pants, some not wearing bras. Freeing isnt it? You do you bro.’ 

Family: Will is the son of late Superman actor Christopher Reeve, who passed away in 2004 at the age of 52, nine years after he was paralyzed in an equestrian accident 

Legacy: As well as working for ABC News, Will is also on the board of directors for the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, which helps to fund research into spinal cord injuries

Thankfully, Will took the social media frenzy in his stride, even joking on his own Twitter account that he had ‘arrived’. 

‘I have ARRIVED… in the most hilariously mortifying way possible,’ he tweeted, not long after the clip of his interview went viral. 

Replying to another user who joked that Will ‘wearing shorts on a video call is a big quarantine mood’, the ABC News reporter wrote: ‘Man the more I look at this the more thigh I see. Yikes.’ 

However, Will did defend himself on one point, insisting to the world that he was in fact wearing shorts, and had not simply appeared on camera in his boxer briefs, tweeting: ‘Those are shorts I promise.’ 

Despite the error, Will is actually a fairly seasoned broadcast journalist, having worked in TV since 2014, when he started working as a commentator for ESPN. In 2016, he also landed a job as the host of The MSG Hockey Show.  

He began working as a Multi Platform Reporter for ABC News in 2018, and since then has done a wide variety of jobs for the network, including a recent interview with popstar Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas. 

Will is also on the board of directors for the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, a charity that was started by his parents to fund research into spinal cord injuries after the Superman star was paralyzed during an equestrian accident in 1995.

He replied: "I'd love to do a season three, it looks like it's going to go down a storm, so if this reaction carries on then yes."

However, he did confess that how well-received the show has been so far has made him nervous about putting out more material.


He explained: "The better it goes down the worst it is for me, you can do something f***ing amazing, and everyone goes: 'Oh god, it's the best thing ever, 10/10.'

"But if you do something else that is 9.5/10 people are like: 'It's f***ing awful, this is the worst show on television', so that's what goes through my mind."

Although he did not give fans any insight into what could happen in the third series, he did give one spoiler as he confirmed that he will never kill off main character Tony's beloved pet dog.

He insisted: "The dog does not die. Never."

Ricky writes and stars in the Netflix show, which first hit our screens in 2019.

He plays widower Tony who is trying to navigate life after the death of his wife, supported by friends, family, and his loyal pooch.

Fans previously revealed that they "couldn't stop crying" just five minutes into series two, with Ricky himself finding the scenes emotional to film – meaning that he could do them in just one take.

He told The Sun Online: "They're not that hard for me, if I feel it, if I mean it, if it feels real I can cry, just once and then you feel better, so they're all one take."

What was Brian Dennehy’s net worth at the time of his death?

Veteran actor Brian Dennehy, 81, died in Connecticut of natural causes on April 15, 2020, his talent agency, ICM Partners, confirmed to CNN

Dennehy, who leaves behind his wife, Jennifer Arnott, and five children, starred in many classic movies, TV shows, and plays throughout his five-decade career in Hollywood. Most notably, the former marine had roles in Silverado, First Blood, and he played actor Chris Farley’s dad in Tommy Boy. Dennehy was “often called on to play an everyman or an authority figure: athletes and sheriffs, bartenders, salesmen and fathers,” as The New York Times noted.

The accomplished actor also won two Tony Awards, including a 1999 win for best actor in Death of a Salesman, and he earned his second in 2003 for best actor in Eugene O’Neill’s Long Day’s Journey into Night.

It’s obvious Dennehy led a very successful life, and now some fans are curious to know where his triumphs landed him financially.

Money wasn't everything for Brian Dennehy

As a Tony and Golden Globe winner who was inducted into the American Theatre Hall of Fame, it’s fair to reason Brian Dennehy made a lot of money during his life. When you also consider Dennehy once worked as a Merril Lynch stockbroker before he made it big, it’s not surprising his reported net worth is $12 million, per Celebrity Net Worth. Fame and business acumen is one heck of a combo.

However, despite his riches, Dennehy realized money wasn’t everything. “Three or four years ago I had an ashen taste in my mouth,” he explained to The New York Times in 1988. “I had done a lot of movies, made a lot of money, and it didn’t really mean a hell of a lot.” 

The actor’s dissatisfaction inspired him to pursue meatier roles, continuing, “I mean, it’s better than a sharp stick in the eye. But when I started doing theater again, I realized that what is interesting to me is the work – not celebrity or getting tables at restaurants, but new challenges. I’ll do the movies and hope some of them will be good, but an increasing amount of my time is going to be spent doing things I’m not sure I can do. Otherwise, what’s the point?”

Nicki Swift gives its condolences to Brian Dennehy’s family, and we remember the other celebrities we’ve lost in 2020.
