James 'Whitey' Bulger
James "Whitey" Bulger, 83, the reputed former leader of the Winter Hill Gang, was one of the nation's most wanted fugitives after he fled Boston in 1994 as federal agents were about to arrest him in connection with 19 killings. He spent more than 16 years on the run before being captured in Santa Monica in 2011. Bulger was convicted Monday in a string of 11 killings and other underworld crimes.

A federal prosecutor summed up the government's case by calling Bulger "one of the most vicious, violent and calculating criminals ever to walk the streets of Boston," and urged the jury to convict him of charges that include 19 killings committed during the 1970s and '80s.
