James Bulger's Killer Jon Venables Released From Jail With Fourth New Identity

Jon Venables, one of the killers of toddler James Bulger, has reportedly been 'secretly freed from jail'.

The Sun claims that Venables, 31, was released from prison with a FOURTH new identity last week.

Denise Fergus and Ralph Bulger, the parents of tragic James, say that Venables has fooled the parole board into releasing him, and that he can never be trusted.

He had been locked up in 2010 after being found guilty of downloading images of children being abused. He had previously served eight years for killing two-year-old James who he and his pal Robert Thompson abducted from a Bootle shopping centre in 1993. The pair then tortured the little boy before leaving his body on a railway track.

James's outraged mum said that Venables was a 'danger to the public' and a man who 'lies for his own sick ends'.

"I have been told that the terms of his parole mean that he must not enter the county of Merseyside," Denise said. "But the probation service didn't monitor him properly last time so I have no faith in their ability to do that now. They should hsve kept him locked up for a long time."

The Sun reports that upon hearing of Venables' release, James's dad Ralph told a family friend 'God help anyone who is around this murdering paedophile', adding that Venables 'can't control his urges towards children'.

"As ever, Venables is treated with kid gloves while James's family is treated as if we don't matter," he said.
