Too serious things the trial -- Whitey Bulger.
I'll pay enough Boston -- Whitey Bulger the -- -- mobster of course he was arrested at in Santa Monica having been.
On the run for many years I guess the -- was witnessing all the time in bill Daley former FBI office and Harry -- retired NYPD detective here with us.
Com so visible we we had this extraordinary clashing cool between two monsters which was like the stuff of soprano as yesterday but then in the more ominously.
The body of -- of this guy Stephen rakes who's gonna be a witness.
Show was up.
The -- dead no signs of trauma -- but he's dead -- -- coincidence all well I don't.
Even coincidences when it comes to cases like this -- -- -- fact that they found this guy thirty miles from his home.
Minute minute drive he's got no wallet in his pocket he's got no cellphone has got no keys how did -- get to the park.
I -- take the train -- they give out a lot of people apartment may be committed suicide.
Why would he drive.
Thirty miles away to commit suicide who was that he could have been a part.
Correct I don't know zionists control Brenda look kind of trauma at all so you don't maybe was poisoned I don't know but it doesn't that doesn't look at the -- to suicide and Gary Johnson.
Extremely suspect I mean this is somebody who was going to be one of the witnesses.
Against -- -- Claiming that why it held a gun to his daughter's head or hadn't pulled a gun out while he was trying to.
Extort him out of selling his liquor store back in the eighties and he was going along quite publicly the fact that he was looking forward to testified that he wasn't afraid.
You know all of these people who although there are many people still -- he's not and he's looking forward to having there.
Looking right in the eye and kind of telling them the true story.
So with that how although we don't of the coroner's report yet I mean there's a lot of suspect -- Harry said I -- really dealing with people like this who have a history.
And a warrant trial for committing murders and various types of extortion and and and -- terrible things is that would you put -- -- them.
And parry we and you probably wouldn't put it policies -- and I wouldn't hurt if there's the second I heard about this I thought it was suspect then you know I mean the end would have his house he's done.
And I think yet is that it is that he was he was far -- -- he clearly did not go out for a stroll -- I can't attack yeah exactly and the I mean I know some who want what's in the pitching department about it look like suicide during the happening the consumer side -- -- The first thing that came to my mind is that who that was Americas and -- -- trying to send a message now who runs it is murder are the kind of sent a message to all the people that are going to be testifying further newspaper.
Now we have we don't -- -- obviously.
We don't have the -- the autopsy will -- will find out when we get that.
Bill but it it I mean if you want to send a message it sent down -- -- -- job.
Then Jonathan it's been one of those things that organized crime has done time and time again for decades is that when they when the silence people.
Those in need do is make one example of someone.
And the other.
So that's the case certainly that's the message if I'm being heard by those people right as -- said a lot of suspect concerns about where it was found how he was found -- -- more to come on that.
But does a person they just said.
Was looking forward to testifying it was new indications that he was in any way distraught over -- he was doing it voluntarily willingly.
And and this may have been an issue of -- he knows people in this that you would be just fine may be behind it.
