Her loyalty to “Whitey” has its price: 21 months of jail



On April 28 the Boston Globe with another stunning piece written by Shelley Murphy reported Catherine Catherine Catherine GreigGreig, “Whitey”whitey Bulger’s long-term girlfriend, sentenced again with 21 months to spend in jail, plus the 8 years she is serving because she refused to tell to a federal jury investigator who helped the couple while on the run.

It costs to this woman of 65 years other 21 months of jail.


Although was promised immunity, Greig decided to keep the secrets of the months spent on the run with Bulger to her.

Greig will be released hopefully as reported by the Globe in 2020.

Catherine Greig was at first a dental hygienist. Ambitious and intelligent, Catherine felt the fascination for the mobster of South Boston starting to live a long-term relationship with him.

All Jimmy Bulger’s girlfriends, like also Cyr, strongly refuse to admit their man was a horrible criminal and Catherine Greig refuses to do that as well, living still her love story with the mobster as the first day she met him.

While Greig lives romantically her love story with Bulger, family members’ of Bulger’s victims are pretty angry.

As reported by the Globe most of them would have wanted a strongest sentence because Catherine Greig refused to tell them who helped her and Bulger while on the run.

No compassion from Patricia Donahue. This lady lost her wonderful husband in the most terrible possible way. Donahue in the wrong place in the wrong moment.

It was a real execution. The gang of Bulger wanted to kill Halloran but later they decided to kill also the innocent person close to him. A devastation for this family. Their life from that day changed forever.

In 1995, when Bulger left forever Boston because ready for him an indictment and wind changed, not anymore protected like in the past, after the strong refusal of Teresa Stanley to follow him on the run because she wanted to take care firstly of her four children, Bulger choose Catherine Greig.

To Catherine Greig this one a dream because in the past she divided this man with Stanley and to her a sufferance.

Catherine and Bulger used constantly false identities once on the run. The latest one for Bulger was Charlie Gasko.

Catherine took care of him and assisted Bulger during these 15 years they lived alone and distant from Boston.

Who knows if the truth of the first months on the run of this couple will never be revealed?

Who helped the couple to reach Santa Monica?

And, in case: who could speak?
