Getty Images Jon Venables, one of two boys convicted of the murder of toddler James Bulger, has been returned to prison again after he was caught with child abuse images for a second time. Venables was 10 when he was jailed in alongside his friend Robert Thompson for murdering two-year-old James. He was released on licence in but returned to jail in for possessing indecent images of children. The year-old was once again arrested last week after officials found indecent material on a computer during a routine check at his home. A source close to the investigation told the Sun: The killing provoked national horror and anger.
Venables, left, tortured and killed Jamie, right Jon Venables has joined a popular dating website — where women who contact him have no way of knowing they are letting the James Bulger murderer into their lives. Venables, 32, has signed up under a name we cannot reveal due to a lifelong order protecting the new identity he was given after serving time for killing the toddler. We cannot also identify the website, which has many young single and divorced mums among its users, who will not know his background if they contact — and possibly meet — the killer.
It is not clear whether the name on his dating profile is an online persona or the new identity given to him in when released on licence after serving eight years for his part in the murder. But experts told of their shock that he is allowed free rein to trawl the web chatting up young single mums — just five years after admitting downloading and distributing child abuse material, for which he was jailed for two years.
James Bulger’s twisted killer was also using online dating websites in search of single mothers while amassing a haul of child-abuse images, it has been revealed.

They found Bulger guilty of 31 of the 32 counts he faced.
Bulger knew as soon as he was arrested that he was going to die behind the walls of a prison …. Bulger extended his reign of terror under a cloak of protection from the FBI, which prized his work as an informant. Corrupt agents fed him tips that he used to kill rivals and fellow informants. Another twist in the tale was the parallel rise in the political world of his brother William to become president of the Massachusetts Senate, one of the most powerful politicians in the state.
The trial, however, laid to rest any romantic Hollywood notions about James Bulger as a Robin Hood figure. Witnesses described a scheming, sinister presence and a brutal killer whose victims included young women he strangled and innocent bystanders he riddled with bullets. Bulger had made a similar sound, imitating a machine gun, when talking about the killing of Edward Connors in a conversation with his niece and nephew last year at the jail. While the jury found Bulger responsible for 11 of 19 murders he allegedly committed, the jury said the charges were not proved for seven of the murders, and they could not reach agreement on one charge.
That prosecution dropped the ball. Five minutes they spent talking about his murder.
