In 1995, Whitey Bulger was on the lam when he contacted his brother, William, through the phone. According to ABC News, William went to a location to receive the call wherein Whitey said that he was safe. William knew that his brother was wanted by the authorities for racketeering and murder charges, but he never informed authorities of the phone call, and the information wasn’t revealed until years later when he testified in front of a grand jury.
The phone call was controversial, and many people questioned why he didn’t offer the information to the FBI. Per the Washington Post, William said that it was a private conversation, and his brother never revealed his whereabouts. In addition, he didn’t urge his brother to give himself up to the authorities, and he admitted that he didn’t feel obligated to help agents locate his brother. During the inquiry, William was asked whether he felt more loyal to Whitey than the people of Massachusetts, to which he replied, “I do have an honest loyalty to my brother, and I care about him . . . It’s my hope that I’m never helpful to anyone against him.”
