16 Years Later, FBI Still Searching for Bulger

January 2011 marks the 16th anniversary of the search for fugitives James “Whitey” Bugler, (age 81) and his accomplice Catherine Greig, (age 60). Bugler is one of the FBI’s Top Ten Most Wanted Fugitives. He is wanted in 19 murders in the ‘70’s and ‘80’s. He fled before his January 1995 federal racketeering indictment in Boston.

Last year, The FBI took out an ad in Plastic Surgery News, April-May edition. The ad reads “Have You Treated This Women?” They are looking for a woman named Catherine Greig, (age 59), believed to be in the company, and an accomplice of , one of The FBI’s Top Ten Most Wanted Fugitives, gangster James “Whitey” Bugler, (age 80).

Bugler was a longtime FBI informant. He is wanted in 19 murders in the ‘70’s and ‘80’s. He fled before his January 1995 federal racketeering indictment in Boston.

They have been on the run for 15 years. The woman is known to have had a face lift, liposuction, and eyelid surgery, and has aged breast implants, placed in 1982, that may need to be replaced at some time. The FBI included the product and lot number of the breast implants.

The ad includes photos of Greig before and after surgery. It asks anyone who might recognize her to call the FBI. The reward is currently $2 million.

Allure magazine was the first to report on the ad. Their headline was “Nip/Tuck Meets America’s Most Wanted.”

Time will tell if the ad pays off. In the meantime, one has to hand it to the FBI for creative, “out of the box,” thinking to catch their most wanted criminals.

We will continue to keep you updated on this story.
