Following the recall of child-killer Jon Venables to prison, after he was found to be in possession of child abuse images for the second time – a photograph which is claimed to be of Venables has been shared thousands of times on social media and a number of websites.
I can assure you that the photograph (which I will not be publishing), is almost certainly NOT Jon Venables.
I cannot stress how reckless an act this is, as besides the obvious issue of there being a High Court injunction still in place which makes identification (falsely or otherwise) of Thompson and Venables a criminal act which ordinarily carries an immediate custodial sentence, It can prove fatal to an innocent person who has been falsely identified.
An example of this?
In 2012, 36-year-old Scott Bradley took his own life after being hounded for months after being falsely accused in a similar manner.
