Federal prosecutors used internal FBI records to build a case that Bulger used his ties to corrupt FBI agents to slow investigators seeking to tie Bulger to four murders he and his Winter Hill gang are accused of committing in an effort to take over World Jai alai, based in Miami, the Hartford, Conn., Courant reported.

Bulger is on trial, after evading arrest for 19 years, on a variety of murder, racketeering and bribery charges.
