Stephen "Stippo" Rakes, a former South Boston man who had waited decades for a chance to testify against James "Whitey" Bulger, was found dead in Lincoln on Wednesday, authorities said today.
Rakes, had been on the witness list and had been eager to testify that Bulger threatened his family at gunpoint and forced him to turn his liquor store into a front for the Winter Hill Gang. But earlier this week prosecutors informed Rakes he would not be called to testify, a decision that left Rakes despondent."Link to Original Source
writes "...in a nutshell: a discussion between several prominent bloggers and authors erupted a few months ago about whether or not to enable comments on websites.
