Whitey Bulger killed with padlock in a sock, officials say


A timeline is now taking shape of James “Whitey” Bulger’s last hours in a West Virginia prison before he was murdered. Law enforcement officials said one or more inmates beat the mobster with a padlock in a sock before his body was discovered 8 a.m. Tuesday by guards. A facility employee said the penitentiary has a reputation for being both understaffed and violent. NBC’s Stephanie Gosk reports for TODAY.
