If he hadn't already been convicted and sentenced to life in prison, it'd appear James "Whitey" Bulger was on the run again.

Bulger, the 84-year-old convicted Boston mob boss, has been moved yet again to a new federal prison facility.

The federal Bureau of Prisons recently updated Bulger's location status. He is now in a facility in Tuscon, Ariz.


USP Tuscon, or United States Penitentiary, is described on the Bureau of Prisons website as a high-security facility with an adjacent minimum security satellite camp. Together, both facilities hold about 1,700 male inmates. A prison spokesman said Bulger is being held in the high-security facility, according to the Globe.

Bulger was most recently being held in a facility in Oklahoma. Before that he was taken to a facility in Brooklyn, N.Y. after his conviction. During his trial he was being held at the Plymouth County Correctional Facility.
