John Martorano

John Martorano

By Matt Connolly, A Former Prosecutor’s View and Analysis of the Whitey Bulger Trial, his Life, and the F.B.I.

My friend Brendan B used to say to me: “I was born at night but not last night.” In going along willy-nilly with some of the testimony I’ve heard without properly considering it sometimes I think I was born last night.

Here’s one thing I was bothered by after writing about Murderman Martorano and recalling his testimony. I couldn’t put my finger on it until today.

I told how Murderman Martorano testified in a multiple hearsay manner saying that Whitey said John Connolly said Billy Bulger said Connolly should keep Whitey out of trouble.  I told how the newspapers sang with glee in their next day headlines about this testimony suggesting that it apparently implicate Billy in Whitey’s criminal enterprise.
