Thursday (October 26, 2023) the hit Paramount+/CBS series “FBI True” airs an all new episode.
FBI True “Whitey Bulger: The Missing Mob Boss & Gangs of Newburgh”
Notorious Boston mobster Whitey Bulger, eventually accused of 19 murders, went on the run in 1994 after being tipped off by a corrupt FBI agent. With hopes of bringing an end to the 15-year hunt for Bulger, the FBI’s Most Wanted fugitive at that time, the Bureau enlists the expertise of two hard-charging agents from outside of Boston, Tommy MacDonald and Phil Torsney. The agents sit down with Cindy Coppola to walk through their experience tracking down Bulger.
FBI agents talk frankly about the triumphs, tragedies and real truths of their jobs, sharing hair-raising stories of dangerous missions carried out by the FBI in the United States and worldwide. With everything on the line, what choices did they make? How did they keep their cool with a kidnapped child’s life in danger, or with a bomb ticking in an unknown location, or a terrorist on the loose? Frank conversations between agents reveal an inside look at the investigations behind some of the biggest cases handled by the FBI.
