‘Whitey’ Bulger auction: $109,295 raised for victims’ families

fox2now.comBOSTON, MA (CNN) – Families of the victims of mobster James “Whitey” Bulger will receive some restitution after the U.S. Marshals Service on Saturday auctioned items seized from his Santa Monica, California, apartment.

The auction in Boston — which included a rat-shaped mug and a gold and diamond claddagh ring — raised $109,295, according to the Marshals Service.

“This certainly isn’t going to make them whole,” Massachusetts U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz told CNN affiliate WFXT. “Nothing that we do is going to make them whole, but we’re hoping … it helps to heal a little bit of what they had to go through.”
