Fotios Freddy Geas Wiki – Freddy Geas Wiki
Freddy Geas (Fotios “Freddy” Geas) real name Fotios Geas, is Mafia hit man and one of two suspects in the prison killing of former Boston crime boss and longtime FBI informant James “Whitey” Bulger.
James “Whitey” Bulger was killed on October 30, 2018 at Hazelton prison in Bruceton Mills, West Virginia. According to a statement from the prisons bureau, he was found unresponsive at 8:20 a.m. and was pronounced dead by the Preston County medical examiner after failed lifesaving measures. He was 89.
According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons and online records, Geas is serving a life sentence at Hazelton prison in Bruceton Mills, West Virginia.
Geas, of West Springfield, Massachusetts, is serving a life sentence at the prison in Hazelton for his role in the assassination of Adolfo “Big Al” Bruno, a Massachusetts mobster with the Genovese crime family, after both the man who ordered him to kill Bruno and the hitman he dispatched to do the murder turned on him and testified against him.
Freddy Geas and his brother Ty were a tag team pair of criminals from West Springfield who were well known, and feared, in Western Massachusetts. When Ty Geas was 17, he was sentenced to a year in jail for firing an assault rifle into the air during a high school hockey game. Freddy Geas exhibited what would become a lifelong, violent animosity toward those who cooperate with the authorities, eventually pleading guilty to threatening to kill a witness against his brother.
When a bar fight at a Springfield bar called Sh-Booms spilled onto the street in 1989, Freddy, then 22, wrecked an expensive vintage car parked outside.
In 2006, he went to jail for beating a pair of men with a baseball bat at a strip club.
According to Springfield and State Police, the Geas brothers could not be “made” members of the Mafia since they were Greeks but they carried the mob’s imprimatur.
In 2009, Freddy Geas was charged with a series of crimes, including the hit on Al Bruno and the 2003 murder of Gary Westerman, Arillotta’s brother-in-law. He was also charged with being the getaway driver in the botched murder of Frank Dabado, a cement union boss in the Bronx.
