Whitey Bulger Witness Was Poisoned

Stephen Rakes, one of potential witnesses listed in the Whitey Bulger prosecution, died during the course of Bulger’s trial. It was reported that he was not going to be called as a witness in Bulger’s case, which apparently had disappointed Mr. Rakes a great deal. It appears the poisoning was not at the direction of Mr. Bulger, as one of Mr. Rakes’ business associates has been charged with poisoning his iced coffee. The medical examiner ruled this week that cyanide poison is the cause of death.
