TULSA, Oklahoma -- The FBI awarded more than $2 million for tips that led to the arrest of fugitive James "Whitey" Bulger and one of his companions. 

At least two people received the money, but the FBI hasn't released any names. Bulger has pleaded not guilty to all counts against him, including the execution of Tulsa businessman Roger Wheeler back in 1981.
