Grand jury to probe Boston mob boss' life on run

BOSTON (AP) — A federal grand jury is apparently investigating the 16 years former Boston crime boss James "Whitey" Bulger and his girlfriend spent on the run.

The property manager at a Santa Monica, Calif., apartment complex said Tuesday he has been subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury in Boston. Joshua Bond says he doesn't know if other residents of the complex where Bulger and Catherine Greig (GREHG) stayed for most of their years on the run also had been subpoenaed.

Bulger and Greig were apprehended in California last month. Bulger is charged with participating in 19 murders. Greig is charged with harboring a fugitive. A federal prosecutor said in court last week she could potentially face additional charges.

The grand jury was first reported by The Boston Globe.
