’60 Minutes’ crime and punishment special airs Sunday
Steve Kroft hosts a special hour of “60 Minutes” including the capture of “Whitey” Bulger; the murder of a neo-Nazi leader; and, the largest archival theft in U.S. history Sunday at 7 p.m. on CBS 6.
THE GASKOS – For 16 years, one of the FBI’s most wanted men, Boston Gangster Whitey Bulger and his girlfriend, managed to elude a worldwide manhunt by living a quiet life in Santa Monica, Calif. as “Charley and Carol Gasko.” Federal law enforcement trackers tell Steve Kroft how they were finally able to locate and arrest the wily, murderous criminal who was also an FBI informant. Tanya Simon is the producer.
THE MURDER OF AN AMERICAN NAZI –Lesley Stahl reports on the murder of a neo-Nazi leader and captures a growing subculture of hate playing out in America’s backyards and alongside the border – where neo Nazis patrol in order to keep illegal immigrants out. Shachar Bar-On is the producer.
STEALING HISTORY – Some of America’s precious treasures, items like signed presidential papers and the Wright Brothers patent, have gone missing. One reason authorities began to take notice: a conman who stole thousands of them over several years. Bob Simon reports. Katherine Davis is the producer.
