Jon Venables knew my mother: James Bulger’s killer unites country in hate
IS Venables “my dad?” So asks a “young mum” from the cover of the Daily Mirror. The answer should come in two words: Jeremy Kyle. This televised patenity test would pack them in.
The story is, however, thinner than the aforesaid Kyle’s prayer book:
A young mum fears James Bulger murderer Jon Venables could be the father of her son.
She believes she may have dated one of Britain’s most notorious murderers while unaware of his true identity.
She fears Venables is the ex-lover she had a brief relationship with in 2008…
But there is one fact. Well, two. She has a child. And:
“I knew that this person I was with was a Schedule One offender – and that was all I knew.”
The anonymous woman met a man who might be Jon Venables on a dating website. She adds:
“I know I had a child with a Schedule One offender who is now untraceable. I haven’t got a clue who he is. I have not seen him for four and a half years. He was 26 at the time. It could be Venables. Perhaps I am never going to know for sure.”
And that’s front-page new in the national press because we have particular hatred for the child who killed a child, even though he was tied as an adult when aged 10. Venables was the child whose crime was described by the trial judge as a crime of “unparalleled evil”.
Pity the woman looking for love tricked into dating a man who gives her a false name.
