Where's Whitey?

James "Whitey" Bulger, the notorious gangster, has been on the run for the past 12 years.  He's wanted for the murders of 18 people, including one man in Tulsa.  Whitey may have just blown his cover. 

He's the former leader of the "Winter Hill" gang in Boston and is on the FBI's Most Wanted list.  Now, an agent swears he has spotted Whitey and his girlfriend while on vacation in Italy.  Not only that, he's got the two on video. 

But, the U.S. Attorney's Office says a facial recognition analysis has turned out to be inconclusive.  Investigators have received hundreds of tips about sightings of the infamous gangster, but they've all turned out to be look-alikes.

The FBI says the last confirmed sighting of James Bulger was in London in September of 2002.  if you have any information that leads to Whitey's arrest, you could receive a $1 million reward.

According to the FBI's website: "James J. Bulger is being sought for his role in numerous murders committed from the early 1970's through the mid 1980's in connection with his leadership of an organized crime group that allegedly controlled extortion, drug deals, and other illegal activities in the Boston, Massachusetts, area.  He has a violent temper and is known to carry a knife at all times.  He is considered armed and extremely dangerous."

    Budget cuts have left many state agencies in crisis mode, including those who provide meals for many elderly people in Oklahoma county. The director of the non-profit Areawide Aging Agency says that before, they were able to absorb those cuts through furloughs, job cuts, fundraisers and even planting a garden with donated labor and materials. But now they say there's simply nothing left to cut except who gets food and who doesn't.

    Oklahoma Highway Patrol closed one lane in both directions temporarily on Highway 62 after a semi rolled over near Snyder. The highway is still closed at this time. 7News viewers David Navarro and Janell Rouse Holmes sent us these photos. OHP says this is happening between mile marker 65 and 66 about five miles east of Snyder. Right now, it's not clear why the truck rolled, if anybody was hurt or what the driver was hauling.
