Jon Venables

An unrepentant child killer wants a British court to pay for plastic surgery after his identity was exposed by a British actress. Jon Venables (pictured) was only 10 years old when he and another 10-year-old, Robert Thompson, kidnapped 2-year-old James Bulger from a shopping center and murdered him in 1993.

Now 35, Venables' identity was revealed after a TV actress Tina Malone retweeted his picture to her followers, UK's Mirror reports.

In 1993, Venables and Thompson, both 10, told detectives they went to a shopping mall to find a child to torture and kill.

They spotted Bulger and followed him and his mother around the shopping center. When she was momentarily distracted, Venables and Thompson approached Bulger and led him out of the mall.

The scene was captured on CCTV footage. Venables is the boy seen on CCTV video leading Bulger by the hand while Thompson walked in front of them.

After sexually molesting Bulger at nearby railroad tracks, the boys beat Bulger with rocks, sticks and an iron crowbar. Then they placed him across the railroad tracks, hoping a train would hit him to make the grisly murder look like an accident.

A pathologist later testified that, mercifully, little Bulger was already dead before the train ran over him and cut his body in half.

Venables and Thompson were convicted of abduction and murder and sentenced to detention until they were 18.

At the time of their convictions they were the youngest murderers in English history.

A parole board made the unpopular decision to release the two killers into society when they turned 18. They were given new identities to conceal their murderous pasts.

Venables was later arrested in 2008 and sent to prison after he was found with over 1,000 graphic images of children in his possession.

He was released on parole again in 2013. But he was back behind bars by November 2017 when he was caught with more child p0rn.

Venables, who is still serving time on his latest charge, is asking a court to pay for his plastic surgery to protect him from the public when he is released again.

He was moved to another prison after inmates beat and tortured him when they discovered his identity.

A prison source told the Daily Star: "Venables said he doesn’t care what or who he looks like or what it costs. He says it’s a necessity to stay alive and his right."

Tina Malone, who retweeted Venables' picture, told the Star on Sunday: "I didn’t have a clue it was illegal. What are you going to do, prosecute me for posting a picture? I didn’t realize."

The child killer has cost taxpayers over $360,000 USD in legal aid so far.

  • ShelbyMoore

    He needs to be under surveillance from this moment forward....the least little thing he does, he needs to go back to jail. He should also never, ever be able to reproduce.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Venables needs to be dead, just dead. He should be killed by chopping his head off

  • Quitedeliteful

    I doubt if they will give him plastic surgery. Who cares about his life?!? He might have been ten but he didn't care when he hurt that poor baby and listened to him cry and beg him to stop. He's sick in the head. I know moms get distracted but mothers keep your kids close...

  • You Could Never

    He needs his face cut OFF is what he needs.

  • ShelbyMoore

    These thugs need to be put down like the dogs they are. They will never change. When will society learn that murders, pedophiles, and rapists will never change. The moment they are caught doing these things, they need to be killed. They should not be allowed to procreate.

  • You Could Never

    Fukk a new face. Just get rid of the whole head. What I just said.

  • ShelbyMoore

    With a dull and rusty meat grinder.

  • You Could Never

    was only 10 years old
    This means he was BORN a monster.

  • Dowoop

    I remember hearing about this case a while back. He should have never been released when he turned 18! The things they did to that poor little boy...smh.

  • Kanyade

    i am disgusted. he is disgusting. this disgusts me. sociopathic psychopathic behaviors at such a young age. probably killed animals before killing that poor boy.

  • klwbaby

    I watched a documentary about this case on YouTube. This case was horrific and they should never be allowed out of prison.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    He's a sociopath. Sociopath's never change their behavior. They will never ever have any type of empathy or compassion and are fixated on their own pleasure at the expense of others even if it means killing them. He was a premeditated killer at 10...he should be place in solitary 23/7 and never be released...

  • You Could Never

    Actually I just read. The lady who released the pics faces JAIL TIME (2 years) for showing who he is now. And he and other guy are BOTH protected under a LIFETIME anonymity order since both were convicted at 10. He might get this and I am mad about it.

  • Millicent Maso6


  • Quitedeliteful

    WOW.... The unmitigated gall of this murderer!!! He wants plastic surgery then he'll have to pay for it. Why should the taxpayers foot the bill to hide a baby killer/pedophile???

  • Quitedeliteful

    Damn Damn Damn! I hope both of them get murdered in prison...

  • MrsHBC

    They should tie his arse to a train track! But before that they should cover him in honey & let the ants have a field day! Bastard!

  • imright

    little bastard shouldve never been released from prison!!! complete psycho path !!

  • Ni Ni

    I kept seeing this boy's picture online last week and finally read an article about the story. I hate the little boy had a bad upbringing, but if you killing and molesting at that age, you dont ever need to be released in the public. l don't believe juveniles should have sealed files if you killed, robbed or molested. The judges and whoever letting these people out should assume responsibility if they are indeed released and resume their habits. They need be jailed for letting them out. It doesn't make sense to give him a new identity to commit more crime. Evil was allowed to consume him as a child and doesn't need to live around people.

  • Yardgirl

    All of this!!!! He had repeatedly shown that he is incapable of rehabilitation!! That woman should not serve a minute behind bars for doing humanity a public service by outing this MONSTER!! I am so enrage right now!!

  • Soon2BWife

    Tina Malone is my hero. Someone like him is just plain old sour milk he will never be right. Do society a solid and poor him down the drain.

  • PlayerP

    I agree with all...this is not how I wanted to start the day, but I'm here now. Pre-meditated depraved sexual acts, torture, and murder??? You shouldn't even have lips, or brain for that matter, to even formulate the thought and speak it?! I like to think I don't believe in corporal punishment, but I think these this dude is a no count and should not have any rights. Him and the other one should have been in a mental institution - clearly there is no hope for him.

  • Karen Brady

    This was disgusting. They also threw a can of paint on him and it splashed in his eyes poor thing. First they were luring a little girl from her mom but the mother caught them Thank God. Wish she'd reported these demons.

  • Ni Ni

    Exactly! I wish somebody does some investigating and dig up the names of the parole board memberd that decided to release them. Put them in blast!!!

  • You Could Never

    I sadly recall when this happened. I will never forget this story and it didnt even happen here.

  • SpiceGirl

    come again?!! What did I just read??

  • Karen Brady

    Same here! Awful awful story. The little boys parents ended up divorcing.. Sick twisted bastards.

  • JV

    The actor apparently broke the law by revealing his identity. I'm certain a GoFundMe would cover the expense for her and then some, because that person is hated.

  • Shira Harding-James

    So let me get this right, he molest and murders a child, gets released and sort of resumes old habits and expects to get rewarded with cosmetic surgery?!

  • Jessica

    Nope. What they did to that child is despicable. If he had stopped with his sick behavior when he was 10 years old, then his butt wouldn't be begging for a change. But no, he continues with his child porn addiction. Let him finally deal with his issue.

  • Ms Thang

    I had to read it twice

  • Anunnaki

    Is this a catfishing story?,

  • Ms Thang

    I remember it as well

  • Reina1718

    The things white people request....& may just get smh

  • Anunnaki

    I thought i was being KATFISHED

  • Yardgirl


  • Ms Thang

    they should give him a new face with creep carved into his forehead

  • Kemi

    Why didn’t they fry this pos when they had the chance. He’s beyond sick and waste to society!

    Oan: can we have a post on Nick Gordon and his arrest?

  • SexyScorpio


  • Yoni7

    He wants his face rearranged? Say no more, I gotchu, son.

  • CookieMobster

    Ridiculous the amount of money they spent on him. A bullet cost 50¢

  • KayCeiSoul

    Just castrate or electrocute him and get it over with.
    He is sick, and has been all of his life. This will not get better, he cannot be trusted, and he needs to either give up the ghost, or be in solitary confinement for life. Freedom should NOT be an alternative.

  • guest

    I remember this case. Phuck him! He needs to get hi a** beat again and again!! It was horrible and beyond torture what they did to that lil boy..smdh

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Expose him! Then do a public pummeling!

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker
  • SpillyNillie

    Why is he still alive?!?!?!?!!

  • Marlika

    This really just hurt my soul reading this. I can’t imagine what that poor baby went through. This mofo and his accomplice need to dye a horrible death just like that baby!????

    They’re both sick phucks. But that behavior was learned. Someone was molesting and beating them when they were kids. All the parents need their ass beat. The two year old Mama for not paying attention. My baby is not leaving my side in public. Both of the boys mamas as well!

    And last but not least the bitch who tweeted the picture really needs her ass beat!! Now because of the bitch being reckless and stupid??? This sick bastard is going to get what he wants!!??????????

  • Soon2BWife

    I watched the video of them walking away with that baby. Lord!

  • Soon2BWife

    I got lifetime contributions on the comminsary of whichever inmate makes this happen.

  • Ni Ni

    Just read on yahoo UK this bastid done had at least four other identities and of course working on his fifth.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    He and his friend is the definition of evil. I hope Karma comes back around like crazy.

  • AListDiva29

    Yes, I agree! I don't know what the UK's pedophile laws are, but I guess they don't have Megan's law or any of that? All pedophiles should immediately be castrated after their release no matter where they live! This guy never should of been released in the first place though!!!

  • HelloToni

    The store is so disturbing. So many questions? I wonder will the government pay.....I hope not.

  • Marlika


  • Simone

    HELL NO!
    So he can go do crap under his new identity!

  • I’M IN AWE…


  • Berry Melon

    The other killer? He got on with his life. I think people should leave him alone, he's moved on and hasn't done anything since. But the Venables one? He's always been "disorientated" since he was young, and even bragged about killing the kid. His photos have been leaked on several occasions, but he's apparently always well protected. If he hadn't been protected, he'd have been killed a long time ago. He loved what he did, he loves the attention, and he according to the dead boy's mother, thinks he can get away with anything. Tina Malone referenced on a Sandra Rose blog, never thought I'd see that. That Tina, she's been in and out of the news for the past year. I wonder if she'll get in trouble for leaking his photo? I mean there are a ton of accounts on Twitter leaking his image. I mean you can't arrest them all? Or maybe they can.

  • Bonsai

    White privilege.

  • datjerk

    Well damn

  • Toni Toni Toni

    This Sick F*CK doesn't deserve a name change nor a Surgery. TF is he thinking. Why does he think he have the RIGHT TO LIVE! EFF THAT BASTARD! That poor innocent little BOY HAD A RIGHT TO LIVE, but they bloody took it away from him when they raped, beat and killed the poor baby boy!

    I think they should get the same DAMN PUNISHMENT! Eff him and his wants. Let his ass get beat TF up for continually desiring children. The bum deserves to BE CASTRATED ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Some of these criminals who have an INJURED PARTY deserve LIEF IN PRISON. Their minds are NOT right.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Sounds about right and as twisted as twisted can get.

    They beat that poor baby to death and tortured him first. The other guy seem to have gone on with his life, never to do it again. This guy is sick and continues to be obsessed with children in a very sick way. Changing his identity, won't change who he is or his sick desires. If they change his identity, they're aided him in doing the same thing to another child. It will be the government's fault, if he molest and kïll another child. This shït makes me want to cry and beat him to death, with my bare hands.

  • BingBangBoom

    Now this is a good time for the family to have a connect in prison. He would never walk out of that jail again.

  • 1BlueStar

    So, he's got the nerve to NOT want to be killed?? Does he think that little boy wanted to be killed?? WGAF what he wants?? I sure wouldn't!

  • Coffee1st

    Soooo, that's where L&O:SVU got that episode from......I know, I've seen each episode at least 3x.
    *doink, doink*

  • SpiceGirl too....lmbo

  • Ghost

    All I can say is WOW! When you premeditate murder and torture at 10 years old...there really is no hope...

  • LeXx

    This is all kinds of F*cked up and disturbing ?

  • Miss Thang

    I believe these two young men who were young boys when they committed this crime should be institutionalized, but not in prison, in a mental institution. I just think they are too high risk to be living among the general public. I always am more compassionate toward people who commit crimes when they are young children.

  • Tausha T. W.

    Give them the Mark of the Beast.

  • MeMyself&I

    I know a couple of thugs that would be more than thrilled to rearrange his dang bono!!

  • bemetoo

    Oh my god fawk demm kids they should have had death sentences

  • HelloToni

    I have never heard this story before. I'm glad the other killer was not a repeat offender . So sickos can be rehabilitated. Shouldn't she be protected by freedom of speech.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    This sick mofo has no rights,put him under the jail, so the maggots can give him a proper new face. SMH!

  • BloodBlood

    This mf!!!!!

  • Berry Melon

    Well it all goes down to the law, sharing private information is breaking the law and people know that, if they wanted justice, why not challenge his anonymity? He's not a kid anymore. So does he need protecting? Unless he's mentally ill? For example, Mary Bell at 10-11 years of age murdered two toddlers by strangling the both of them to death. Since her release from prison in 1980, she has lived under a series of pseudonyms. Her identity has been protected by a court order, which has also been extended to protect the identity of her daughter. However reporters in 1998 uncovered her identity and she and her mother had to leave their house with bed sheets over their heads. She eventually gave up her anonymity for a short time. However, on 21 May 2003, Bell won a High Court battle to have her own anonymity and that of her daughter extended for life. Any court order permanently protecting the identity of a convict in Britain is consequently sometimes known as a "Mary Bell order". She's a 60 year old grandmother now and has moved on with her life, so yes child murderers who kill other children can be rehabilitated. The reason why they get released is because they did most of their time from the ages of 10. So by the time they become adults, they are released.

  • kimberly

    Exactly clearly he gives no fucks continuing to get caught with porn and they still let him out tf

  • Allihave2say

    His primary motive is to not be so easily recognizable while continuing to assault and kill children.

  • nick c

    This was abuse of juvenile laws most can be rehabilitated from many crimes but not ALL crimes. If you are killing and molesting people you got to do hard time no matter what the age is. I remember this story so well they were both the youngest to commit such a heinous first degree murder. I'm conflicted over should they have been sentenced to death but most likely yes.

  • Unhappy American

    SMH ?? WOW

  • Unhappy American

    All the time ?


    but they still tryna get OJ... This creature should not be living anymore somebody kill this guy so i can feel safer ASAP!


    wow your conflicted?


    hes still committing crimes as an adult someone needs 2 take his life and quick


    i would kill someone who did this 2 my child kid or not it would have been lights out and i would have gladly went 2 jail. some entities like that dont deserve 2 be on this earth...They need 2 look at what kind of parents and house hold this Monster had as well

  • really?wow

    Had that been America in certain states he might been dead on the 3rd strike by way of prison or the justice system. At 0 cost to the tax payer

  • the guest

    Thank you Actress Tina Malone for exposing this child predator and killer! Tina Malone is an everyday hero who probably saved children from harm. This article made me cry. I say it all the time on here. There is no such thing as being overprotective parents. Sick people even sick older young children can be watching and following your child like this sicko. Please be overprotective.

  • the guest

    If god forbid my husband and I were to ever divorce, I would never date in this this crazy duplicitous world. How do people know who's who. This is the sickest thing I have ever read.

  • Ni Ni

    I dont blame you. I'm single and i don't date. The world has changed so much in only about 10-15 yrs.

  • HelloToni

    Thank you. had no idea anonymity was even an option. I can see how people can be against it. And yes her daughter's identify should be protected, she's innocent.

  • Lady_Elle

    Not one penny should be given to this pig!!!

    This predator wants to continue to prey on children... the kids and their parents will not know it is someone that has already been convicted of murderer.

  • Youngblood

    Satan the devil this kids were brought up with demon's all around them

  • brooklyn23

    Thats plausible

  • brooklyn23


  • Blunted25

    He's still a predator. He's been arrested twice as an adult for child porn. Off with his head!

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    They do not change. PERIOD.
    Unless we are talking about chemical and physical castration, they need to serve life and be housed in a segregated community.
