When did Flemmi get so old looking?

Longtime FBI informant Stephen "The Rifleman" Flemmi told a Florida jury today that his former handler, retired FBI agent John J. Connolly Jr., warned him and his sidekick, James "Whitey" Bulger, that a Boston business consultant who could implicate them in murder "wouldn't hold-up" if questioned by the FBI.

Within a week, Bulger summoned hitman John Martorano to a meeting at a New York City hotel and told him that he had to kill his good friend, Callahan, Flemmi said.
