The address was 799 East Third Street, where Whitey Bulger set up a murder assembly line. It was the 1980’s and Bulger and his bloodthirsty crew were selling cocaine, running guns, extorting other gangsters and killing young women…and burying the bodies in the basement of a little house in South Boston.
The first of those victims was Arthur “Bucky” Barrett. His murder would go down as one of the gang’s most cruel and unnecessary killings. Even Stevie “the Rifleman” Flemmi later claimed he was shocked by Whitey’s brutality.
