The story as you will know is the one of legendary and still alive criminal Whitey Bulger. During the ’70s and ’80s this mafioso terrorized the people of South Boston with a lot of criminal activities. The movie is inspired at the book Black Mass: The Irish Mob, the FBI, and a Devil’s Deal By Dick Lehr and Gerard O’NeillImage.


Very recently Dick Lehr and Gerard O’Neill returned to the theme with another stunning book: “Whitey: The life of American’s most notorious mob boss“. 


A legendary criminal with a legendary companion: Lindsey Cyr.

The first meeting between the two, the mafioso Bulger and Lindsey, now 68Image, took place for case at a cafè in 1966 and it was love at first sight.

Lindsey had never met him before but she fell for him immediately as she would have remembered years later.

She told that Whitey was “Gorgeous, blond, blue-eyed ImageImage Image“. And of course handsome.

Lindsey was just a 20 years old girl and Whitey was more mature than her being born in 1929. He was 37 years. Maybe she had thought she had found with him his prince charming. At that age it’s a normal conclusion. The reality was maybe more complicated.

Lindsey Cyr confessed anyway Whitey treated her like a princess all the time and he was a very good man. “A gentleman” she confessed. Of course very soon, when the relationship became pretty serious Whitey confessed her who that angel-face she fell in love with was: a mafioso. A powerful mafioso. At that time Whitey had been in jail for more or less ten years and he was in big messes for sure.

Lindsey added: “You are sitting there looking at someone you consider to be a real gentleman and he’s got a history that is bizarre”.

Lindsey became pregnant at some point in 1967. An unexpected baby, Whitey told to the lover he was organizing a lot of dangerous criminal activities and a pregnancy was the latest thing they all needed.

There is a lot of devotion in this lady for Whitey. She says at some point in fact in an interview that the pregnancy was: “Too dangerous for him”.

Whitey has never lived with Lindsey and baby Douglas Glenn Cyr ImageImage  Image  although he loved to spend  every week some time with Lindsey and the baby.

At the age of six in 1973 Douglas fell sick with a very rare and dangerous illness: Reye’s syndrome able of affecting brain and liver. Kids most exposed to it are the ones recovering from a viral infection. In Douglas’ case the cause was a medicine a doctor prescribed him for vomiting.

They rushed to the hospital a friday night. Douglas’ brain was dead on monday.

Whitey suffered a lot because of the lost of his only son.


Twelve intense years of love-story with a legendary mafioso made the difference for this lady, Lindsey Cyr.

Once captured in Santa Monica, California, Lindsey declared she hadn’t any pale idea where Whitey could have been all that time and she added she thought maybe he was spending that years hided somewhere in Europe.

Lindsey Cyr lives now in Weymouth, Massachusetts.
