In decades of service to the Bonanno crime family,

Vincent Asaro was never one of the bosses' favorites.

 

He doesn't even have a nickname.

James "Whitey" Bulger    1929-2018

 

Bulger, who ran the largely Irish mob

in Boston in the 1970s and '80s,

served as an FBI informant

who ratted on his gang's main rival

in an era when bringing down the Mafia

was a top national priority for the FBI.

 

He later became one

of the nation's most-wanted fugitives.
