The court filing also contained several bombshell disclosures including that Bulger had returned to Boston on numerous occasions to "take care of some unfinished business" and he did so while traveling in disguise and "armed to the teeth."

During his flight from Los Angeles to Boston last week on a government jet, after waiving his Miranda rights, the newly loquacious Bulger also told officials that during his 16 years on the lam he had traveled across the border into Tijuana to buy medicine and that he had "previously stashed money with people he trusted."

Criminal associates of Bulger's, Steven "The Rifleman" Flemmi and Kevin Weeks, have also both told investigators that Bulger "had been hiding money for years."

According to government lawyers, these are all good reasons to indicate Bulger "may have additional assets and/or allies willing to assist him in his current predicament."

Bulger is due back in court on Thursday at 1 p.m.
