Bulger's Apartment Hot Property
Los Angeles, CA – LOS ANGELES (AP) The simple Southern California apartment where James "Whitey" Bulger, suspected in 19 murders, including the killing of Tulsa businessman Roger Wheeler, hid from the FBI for more than a decade could soon be one of the hotter properties in Santa Monica's rental market.
The door to unit 303 remains sealed with police tape as FBI agents continue to pick the place apart, but a line of prospective tenants is already jostling to get a look inside.
Property managers and rental agents say a flurry of people has been calling, several of whom mentioned Bulger during the course of their inquiry.
