A former gangster in James (Whitey) Bulger’s criminal empire admits to killing 20 people but said he’s a “nice guy” who was only trying to help his family and friends.
John “The Executioner” Martorano denied being a hitman or a serial killer Tuesday as he took the stand for a second day in the sensational trial of Boston’s most famous mobster.
“I didn’t enjoy killing people. I enjoyed helping a friend,” Martorano, 72, told jurors.
He wasn’t a hitman because he was never paid for murders, and he didn’t get a kick out of pumping bullets into his victims, said the former member of Bulger’s violent Winter Hill Gang.
