A number of items belonging to convicted mobster James ‘Whitey’ Bulger are set to be sold off at auction to help compensate the Irish-American gangster’s murder and extortion victims.
Federal prosecutors in the US filed a court motion earlier this week to forfeit further assets of the 86-year-old.
Earlier this year, a separate order was made to auction off dozens of items seized from Bulger, following his capture five years ago.
Following the new motion, further seized belongings —including a sterling silver skull ring, valuable coins, jewellery, books, magazines, clothing and other household items — are also set to go under the hammer at the scheduled auction on June 24-26.
Bulger, whose life of crime was depicted by Johnny Depp in Hollywood movie Black Mass recently, is serving a life sentence at a federal penitentiary in Florida.
