BOSTON — Prosecutors say they’ve uncovered two documents that may be autobiographies by reputed New England mobster James “Whitey” Bulger.

Federal prosecutors say in a status report filed in court today they found a document entitled “My Life in the Irish Mafia Wars” at a South Boston home and another document at the apartment in Santa Monica, Calif., where Bulger was captured last year with his girlfriend.

Prosecutors say it’s unclear whether Bulger wrote the document found in South Boston. They say the document found in California “appears to be autobiographical.”

The government included descriptions of the documents in a list of evidence turned over to Bulger’s lawyers.

Bulger is the former leader of the Winter Hill Gang. He is charged with participating in 19 murders and has pleaded not guilty.
