Have you figured out who this is yet? Come on, guess! OK, we’ll tell you. It’s Hidden City’s host Marcus Sakey! In the Boston episode, Marcus is transformed into an older man so he can walk around Faneuil Hall to get a feel for what it is like to hide in plain sight, just like mob boss Whitey Bulger. Whitey was living in Santa Monica, CA, for several years before the FBI finally arrested him. Read Marcus’s take on the experience in his blog.
In addition to Whitey Bulger’s story, Marcus also dives into the Great Brinks Robbery and the case of the Boston Strangler. When the Great Brinks Robbery was carried out in 1950, it was the largest bank heist in US history. The thieves made off with more than $2.7 million in assets. The Boston Strangler case is one that still causes debate about whether Albert DeSalvo was really the true killer. Marcus gets forensic psychologist Dr. David Bernstein to weigh in on the case and give him a glimpse into the mind of a psychopath. Dr. Bernstein then turns the tables on Marcus and gives him a psychopath quiz.
