Infamous Boston gangster James “Whitey” Bulger has been found dead in a US federal prison in West Virginia.
The 89-year-old was discovered unresponsive in his cell at the maximum security facility shortly after being transferred there from a Florida jail.
US media report the former mob boss was killed on Tuesday morning at the penitentiary.
The life of Bulger, who was convicted in 2013 of 11 murders, inspired several films.
He was captured in California in 2011 after a 16-year manhunt.
