BOSTON: Behind the convictions of Boston's most powerful mobsters over the past 30 years, there has been one constant: federal prosecutor Fred Wyshak.Wyshak, 65, arrived at Boston's U.S. attorney's office 1989 after pursuing mobsters in New Jersey and was recruited by state police investigators to help do what no one else seemed willing to: go after notorious gangster James "Whitey" Bulger and his Winter Hill Gang.Wyshak spent the next three decades securing convictions against Flemmi, Connolly and finally Bulger, who was captured in California at age 81 in 2011 .And last month, Wyshak took down the last man standing from organized crime's heyday in Boston and its environs when a jury convicted 84-year-old Salemme, once the head of the New England family of La Cosa Nostra, of killing nightclub owner Steven DiSarro in 1993 .
