(CBS News) A Boston Globe investigation reveals it was Miss Iceland 1974 who was the tipster who collected the $2 million reward for information to the arrest four months ago of notorious alleged Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger.

Bulger, formerly No. 1 on the FBI’s Most Wanted Fugitives list, was discovered when he went outside to help feed a stray cat. Bulger, who almost never went outside, was seen there and remembered by the former Miss Universe contestant and actress, Anna Bjornsdottir, Bulger’s sometime neighbor.

Boston Globe reporter Maria Cramer told CBS News, “Probably a lot of people assumed that there would be some ‘you’ll never take me alive moment,’ and instead, it was Miss Iceland 1974.”
