BOSTON – Authorities ruled out a possible sighting of the fugitive gangster James "Whitey" Bulger Tuesday after a German couple came forward identifying themselves in the photograph and video.
The couple, shown shopping in Taormina, a city on the island of Sicily, shared similar mannerisms connected to Bulger and Catherine Greig.
After an investigation, FBI agents were unable to positively identify the couple shown in the video and turned to German TV's equivalent of "America's Most Wanted" to broadcast the story.
FBI agents released a photograph and 18 seconds of video of two people matching Bulger and his girlfriend's description.
The FBI says Bulger is responsible for at least 18 murders, and is wanted on charges of racketeering (RICO), murder, conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to commit extortion, narcotics distribution, conspiracy to commit money laundering, extortion and money laundering.
