“This is the third murder in seven months in our prison. We lack staff, the staff is not fully staffed for about 40 people,” he said in a telephone interview.
The Penitentiary Administration officially confirmed the death of Bulger and reported that the FBI is investigating his death.
The statement does not say what caused the death, but it is noted that “prison staff and other prisoners were not injured, nor was there any threat to public safety.”
