With Eric Robert Rudolph now behind bars, there are still nine remaining most wanted fugitives, one of whom has a Tulsa connection. Whitey Bulger has been on the run for six years.

Bulger is wanted in connection with 18 murders, including that of Tulsa businessman Roger Wheeler many years ago.

The feds say Bulger was a mob boss in Boston who ordered the hit on Wheeler.

Bulger has been spotted in Texas, California, Florida, Las Vegas and New York, but, has most recently been seen in Ireland. He has plenty of money to finance his life on the run.

Sgt Mike Huff, Tulsa Homicide Squad: "As a major organized crime figure, he made hundreds of thousands, probably millions in cash. His only problem was figuring out where to spend it. He stashed much of it in safety deposit boxes here and overseas."

Bulger is probably still traveling with this woman, Catherine Greig. She's also wanted by the FBI, for harboring a fugitive.
