Joe Bruno on the Mob – Whitey Bulger’s Moll Catherine Greig Indicted For Harboring Bulger for 16 Years

To me, this is justice and a no-brainer.

Sixteen years ago, Whitey Bulger went into the wind after he discovered from crooked FBI agent John Connelly that he was about to be arrested for 19 murders, and numerous other acts of ill will. After first leaving with another woman, who was 15 years older than Catherine Greig, Bulger snuck back to Boston, dropped off the old hag, and picked up the voluptuous Greig.

For the next 16 years, Bulger and his young broad had a grand old time together. They moved deftly around the world using several different aliases to avoid detection. Greig, now 60 years old, went under several aliases, including, Carol Gasko, Carol Gasco, Helen Marshall, Carol Shapeton, and Mrs. Thomas Baxter. According to the new indictment against Greig, she did everything from “buying his groceries to ordering his pills.” The prosecutors also accuse Greig of “using cash and money orders “to conceal their true identities and the source of the funds.”

If that isn’t harboring a fugitive, I don’t know what is.

Bulger, now a spry 81 years old, faces certain life imprisonment, no matter what he is convicted of, and he’ll be convicted of something (19 murders?). Grieg’s only faces 5 years in the slammer if she is convicted, but at her age, 5 years places Greig firmly into the category of “old age.”

I don’t feel too sorry for Catherine Greig. She lived high on the hog, for 16 years, with one of the most despicable men in the world.

Now it’s the time for her to pay the piper.

Whitey’s on-the-lam gal Catherine Greig indicted

Mobster galpal Catherine Greig was indicted yesterday by a federal grand jury on conspiracy to harbor and conceal her Top 10 most wanted lover — doing his bidding while on the lam, from buying the groceries to ordering his pills, the feds said.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office said the 60-year-old Quincy woman faces up to five years in jail if convicted of “harboring and concealing” James “Whitey” Bulger from January 1995 to June 22 of this year, when the couple was caught holed up in a seaside apartment in Santa Monica, Calif.

UPDATE: Greig’s arraignment will be Thursday at 9 in the morning, the feds said today.

The indictment lists Greig as having aliases while on the run that included Carol Gasko, Carol Gasco, Helen Marshall, Carol Shapeton and Mrs. Thomas Baxter.

The feds also accuse Greig of using cash and money orders “to conceal their true identities and the source of the funds.”

They communicated with people in Massachusetts using “methods of communication that masked their true identities and locations,” the indictment states.

A Bulger “relative” also posed for a photo and “wore a fake moustache for the photographs in order to make him look like Bulger, who had altered his appearance as a fugitive by growing a mustache.” The image was used for fake IDs.

Greig, who is locked up in a Rhode Island jail, is fighting to post bail. Bulger, who is accused of 19 murders during his reign of terror in South Boston, is being held without bail.
