How to Become a Bounty Hunter



FBI Tipster Got $100,000 Reward for Bulger’s Girlfriend and $2 Mil for Bulger

The person who tipped off the FBI about the whereabouts of Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger, not only got $2 million for that tip, but got an extra $100,000 for the capture of Bulger’s girlfriend Catherine Greig, the Boston Globe reported.

The FBI issued a statement saying:

“As of Friday, Sept. 23, 2011, the FBI has paid this reward money to more than one individual. To protect the anonymity and privacy of those responsible for providing information which directly led to the arrests of Mr. Bulger and Ms. Greig, the FBI will not comment further regarding this matter.’’

Law enforcement official previously identified the tipster as a woman from Iceland.

That hasn’t sat so well with Keith Messina, 45, of Las Vegas, who has told the Boston newspapers that he should have gotten some of the reward for tipping off “America’s Most Wanted’’ in June 2008 after spotting Bulger on the Santa Monica Pier in California.

The FBI has refused to cough up any cash for Messina.

Bulger is a suspect in 19 murders.
