Jon Venables’ anonymous girlfriend has announced that she plans to marry him when he leaves prison. He is currently serving a sentence after he was found with thousands of indecent images of children, with many in the worst possible category A, along with a “vile” paedophile manual that included chapters titled “How to F*ck Little Girls”.
Police had previously mentioned to the press that they had reached out to the woman living with Jon Venables under his secret identity to inform her about his real name and his violent past. Officers mentioned that they were motivated by the realisation that the woman had young children in her family who she maintained regular contact with. Even at the time she stated that she was willing to stay with him despite the things he did as a child, as well as the crimes he committed in adulthood.
Bizarrely, the woman has been described as excited about her future wedding and has been showing off her engagement ring to those around her.
Officials spoke to The Sun about her and said,
“Officials have made this woman fully aware of Venables' horrific crimes yet this hasn't stopped her wanting to be with him.
“You have to question what kind of woman would choose to spend their life with a convicted child killer and paedophile.
“Anyone in their right mind would run a mile when they found out they were dating Venables.
“But she is going about her business in a normal way and intends to marry when he’s released from jail.
“You have to remember that while the couple might be busy planning the rest of their lives together, sadly James was robbed of his chance to find a soulmate later in life.”
There is something seriously wrong here if a murderer and convicted paedophile is allowed to become a father, how could he be trusted around his own child? Doesn’t bear thinking about. His girlfriend is deluded.. https://t.co/Rb7W4teCPT— Lyn Brookes (@chocqueen12) 25 February 2018
Meanwhile it has recently been revealed that prisoners in the same prison as Venables have obtained photos of him, showing his current identity and the prison he is staying in. If leaked, then anyone responsible could face two years in prison for breaking the government’s anonymity order. It remains to be seen if the photos will be made public by those who have them in their possession.
