FBI received Santa Monica tip--in 2008

The Santa Monica Times reporting an intriguing story that a Las Vegas man vacationing in California recognized Whitey Bulger sitting on a park bench at historic Santa Monica Pier, chatting with a kid wearing a Boston T-shirt about city neighborhoods-- in 2008. The man recognized Bulger because he'd just seen the FBI corruption story featured on an episode of "America's Most Wanted."

Steve Katz, the show's co-executive producer, confirmed that the show did get a tip in 2008 that Bulger was in Santa Monica. He added that the information about Bulger being in Santa Monica was turned over to authorities. The FBI couldn’t confirm Thursday whether the agency ever received such a tip.
