The family of notorious Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger plans to file a lawsuit against the government claiming wrongful death and negligence more than a month after his mysterious murder inside a West Virginia prison.

Hank Brennan, Bulger’s longtime attorney, told the Wall Street Journal on Sunday, the gangster’s estate wants to find out why authorities sent the infamous mob boss to U.S. Penitentiary Hazelton in October, where he was beaten to death inside his unlocked cell fewer than 24 hours after his transfer.

“It’s important for the family and the public to know why the prisons decided to wheel an 89-year-old man with a history of heart attacks into one of the most dangerous prisons in the country,” Brennan told the Journal.

Instead, a month later, on Oct. 30, the 89-year-old mob boss was killed the day he arrived at the West Virginia prison. He was found bloodied and wrapped in a blanket after apparently being beaten with a lock stuffed in a sock.

No one has been charged yet in the killing, but two Massachusetts mobsters are among the suspects, officials have said.
