A house where gangster James & # 39; Whitey & # 39; Bulger Jr. murdered two men and a woman and then buried their bodies in the basement is for sale for $ 3.5 million.
Located in the popular City Point area of South Boston is the property that the crime boss & # 39; The Haunty & # 39; mentioned online – but without any reference to his horrible past.
Just a few blocks from the waterfront and a park with two adjoining houses, a Cape style and an apartment at the back, offering a & # 39; development opportunity & # 39; are called.
At the time of the murders, it was owned by an employee of Bulger, the brother of Pat No, according to the Boston Globe.
The bodies of his three victims, who were once buried in the basement, were moved to a different location in 1985 before the property was sold, the site reported.
It was valued last year at $ 899,100 according to USA Today, previously listed at $ 39,200 in 1985.
But now after the interior renovation to make it stylish and modern with colorful walls and hardwood floors, the price is much higher.

Boston Gangster & # 39; Whitey & # 39; Bulger, Jr. poses for a mugshot on his arrival at the federal prison in Alcatraz in 1959. The gangster killed and buried three in a house in South Boston that is now for sale for $ 3.5 million
The interior, originally built in 1885, is located in a historic Irish-American working-class neighborhood, which has now become a trendy hotbed for young professionals.
Bulger (above) was part of the Winter Hill gang and died last year in Peston prison at the age of 89. He was reportedly clubbed to death. The gangster was eventually accused of killing 11 people, as well as extortion, money laundering, drug trafficking and possession of firearms. He received two life sentences for his long list of crimes he had committed as a crime boss at the time
Bulger, who was the former leader of the Winter Hill gang, died in October last year at the age of 89 after being beaten to death in prison in Peston County, Virginia.
He served two living conditions for killing 11 people, along with other charges, including extortion, money laundering, drug trafficking and possession of firearms.
According to Bulger, the 2013 Boston Federal Court Bulger trial would reveal the dark history of the property.
Arthur & # 39; Bucky & # 39; Barrett, an alleged jewel thief and bank robber, was shot in the head in 1983. Shortly after he revealed the location of his hidden money.
John McIntyre also suffered the same fate during an interrogation with Bulger after it was assumed that he had spoken with the authorities in 1984.
Both men were buried in the basement's dirty floor, with their teeth removed to prevent identification, the Globe reported.
The last death and burial in the house happened in 1985, when Bulger killed a 26-year-old woman who would drop the gang members' names after she ran into trouble with drug abuse authorities.
The wife was the daughter of the girlfriend of Bulger & # 39; s partner Stephen & # 39; The Rifleman & # 39; Flemmi, who would later testify against him in court.
& # 39; It didn't take long. She was a very fragile woman, & Flemmi told the court, according to Reuters. After the murder, Bulger took a nap upstairs while the others, including Flemmi, dug her grave.

It last changed hands in 1985, shortly after the bodies were removed according to the Globe, and became the property of Russell and Mary Radcliffe.
The couple who took over the premises from the Nee & # 39; s are said to be a & # 39; healthy, hardworking & # 39; couple who raised their family according to the site.
Listing broker Sara Walker told the Globe, it would be a & # 39; wonderful opportunity for the neighborhood to heal & # 39 ;.
