    Steven Davis, brother of Debra Davis, tells media outside the courtroom that he's controlling his anger over the jury's no finding in the murder of his sister, Debra Davis. He's hopeful that state charges will be brought against Bulger, and vows that "this ain't over."

    Steven Davis: Bulger had enough money to live on an island by himself. When is enough enough?
  • Teresa Hanafin 8/12/2013 6:44:34 PM
    Steven Davis: I'd rather be called a murderer than ever to be called a rat. I'd die before I'd ever rat on anybody. I think that's killing [Bulger] right now. It's the lowest type of criminal you can ever be is a rat.
  • Teresa Hanafin 8/12/2013 6:45:16 PM
    Steven Davis: I come out here feeling good because there was no finding. Both sides did a good job.
  • Teresa Hanafin 8/12/2013 6:46:54 PM
    Steven Davis: I don't believe in closure. I have to live every day, my family has to live every day, and the rest of the families have to live every day with the loss of a loved one.

    Steven Davis is crying about a question about his sister, murder victim Debra Davis. He walks away from the press conference.
  • Just gave a hug to Steve Davis. He understands why jury ruled as it did. Evidence was not conclusive either way.

    Patricia Donahue, wife of Bulger murder victim Michael Donahue, said she couldn't control her emotions when the jury returned a finding of proven in her husband's murder.
  • Teresa Hanafin 8/12/2013 6:50:01 PM
    Patricia Donahue: There was justice today for me, but maybe not for some others. It's been a long time coming, but it's been worth it for me.
  • Teresa Hanafin 8/12/2013 6:50:34 PM
    Patricia Donahue: I'm sure my husband (Bulger murder victim Michael Donahue) is very proud of myself and my children.
  • Teresa Hanafin 8/12/2013 6:51:10 PM
    Patricia Donahue: I think about what my husband would think about his children, who are tall. He was not tall. He would be proud that they worked so hard for this.
  • Teresa Hanafin 8/12/2013 6:51:35 PM
    Patricia Donahue: I still have my civil cases against the government. One down, more to go.
  • Teresa Hanafin 8/12/2013 6:52:07 PM
    Patricia Donahue: We've been promised a lot of money throughout the years, and never received a dime. I'm not looking forward to getting any money.
  • Teresa Hanafin 8/12/2013 6:52:36 PM
    Patricia Donahue: Makes me feel good to let people know that my husband was an innocent victim in this whole thing, and Whitey deserved to be found guilty of his murder.
