Fotios "Freddy" Geas and at least one other inmate are believed to have been involved in the murder after the 89-year-old was found dead hours after he was transferred to a West Virginia prison. Girlfriends were found dead, rivals were mutilated and drug dealers shaken down.

According to a New York Daily News story from September 2011, Geas, of West Springfield, Massachusetts, was given a life sentence for the 2003 murder of a crime boss and another man they thought was an Federal Bureau of Investigation informant.

Private investigator Ted McDonough knew Geas and told The Boston Globe: "Freddy hated rats".

"Freddy hated guys who abused women".

An FBI spokeswoman in Pittsburgh declined to comment on Geas.

The FBI and US Attorney's Office are investigating the death as a homicide.

The U.S. Justice Department paid more than $20 million in damages to families of people killed by Bulger on the grounds that he was operating under government supervision while killing.

"What I don't understand is why the Federal Bureau of Prisons would transfer a super high-publicity inmate, who is a known snitch, to general population of a high-security prison", said Cameron Lindsay, a former federal prison warden who now works as a jail security consultant.

Five members of Congress wrote to Attorney General Sessions last week about what they saw as chronic understaffing at USP Hazelton and other federal prisons.

Bulger, who eluded federal authorities for more than 16 years before his arrest in June 2011, was serving the rest of his life in prison for a litany of crimes that included his role in 11 murders.

Bulger, whose life was depicted in the 2015 film "Black Mass" starring Johnny Depp, had been transferred a day earlier in a wheelchair to the high-security Hazelton penitentiary in West Virginia, a prison employee briefed on the matter said on Tuesday. Other critics have gone further - questioning if prison officials may have been complicit.

The Geas brothers were not established members of the Mafia because they were Greek rather than Italian, but they were close associates of the mob and acted as enforcers.
