Organ banks around the country have noted an increasing number of organs from donors who have died of overdoses.
Debra Davis was 26 when she was murdered in 1981.
Prosecutors accuse former Boston mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger of killing her.
The defense argued that Davis’ boyfriend, Stephen Flemmi — a close associate of Bulger’s — was the one who strangled Davis to death.
On Monday, jurors convicted Bulger on murder charges in the deaths of 11 people. But they could not agree on whether Bulger killed Davis.
Davis’ brother, Steven Davis attended the trial everyday, and he says Bulger definitely played a role in his sister’s murder.
