Family of alleged Bulger victim speaks out
DORCHESTER, Mass. -- The arrest of James Bulger is finally bringing some justice to the family of some of Bulger's alleged victims.
“I wish I was the one that got him,” said Stephen Davis.
Stephen was experiencing a mixture of emotions Thursday morning. He and his brother are glad Whitey Bugler’s been caught, but want more from the man who allegedly killed their sister, Debra Davis, and then cut off her fingers and pulled her teeth to block identification of her body.
“I’m an eye for an eye type of guy,” said Stephen. “I would have been more glad if I found him. I would have done the same thing to him as he’d done to my sister.”
Davis’ body was found in Dorchester 11 years ago - five years after Bulger went on the run.
Debra Davis had been Fleming’s girlfriend. Bulger and his partner in crime, Steve Fleming allegedly strangled Davis in 1981 because she knew too much.
“We’re just happy that they caught up with him,” said Robert Davis. “We think it should have happened a long time ago.”
The Davis family filed suit against the federal government for protecting Bulger. It’s unclear how the Bulger arrest with affect that suit.
“It’s all important to me. It’s all important to our family just to be able to move on and put this behind us,” said Robert Davis.
“I still want revenge,” said Stephen Davis.
