John Venables is out there




Sarah Finn 36, came in contact with Jon Venables on the internet.  She is a single mother with a 10 year old son.  They became good friends over time but never met.

Venables and his friend Robert Thompson were only 10 years old when they abducted, tortured and murdered two year old James Bulger in Bootle, Merseyside in 1993.  They were released in 2001 and both given new identities.  An injunction was put in place that gives them life-long anonymity.  The law protects them, instead of us.

Ms Finn accepted his friend request on MySpace in March 2007 and said he was "good looking, charming, kind, and easy to talk to."  They became friends on Facebook, swapped phone numbers and chatted on webcam.  They grew close and would text each other a lot.

He told her she was pretty but alarm bells started to ring when he began telling her stories that didn't make sense, they were totally unbelievable.  Venables kept asking her to meet up but she was wary, and then he sent her a picture of his genitals.


In 2008, his messages stopped completely and his Facebook profile and MySpace photos were deleted.  In 2010 he was back behind bars, caught with child pornography pictures of children as young as two.


Ms Finn found out who he was when a woman contacted her, assuming that she already knew.  Venables has now completed his child pornography sentence and he'll be back on the street again soon.


James Bulger's father Ralph said "Venables always was and remains a very sick and manipulative individual.  Thank God this woman and her child had a lucky escape."  Last month was the 20th anniversary of James Bulger's murder.


Just another reminder to lonely women in search of love on the internet. He's handsome and charming, two important traits important to some women.


His childhood accomplice, Robert Thompson, is keeping his head down, we haven't heard a peep out of him.  There was a strong rumour that he is living somewhere in Australia so ladies, be careful out there.
