Child killer Jon Venables has a secret girlfriend who knows about the part he played in the James Bulger murder, it has been reported.
The woman, who cannot be named, is believed to have been warned by authorities about the murderer’s evil past, but stuck by him as their relationship became more serious.
The Sun claims the woman was also at the home where a probation officer discovered 1,200 child abuse images on Venables’ laptop.
The computer had been hidden behind a bed and contained a document called The Jazz Guide, with advice on how to abuse young kids.

Venables, now 35 and living with a second new identity, was jailed for 40 months this month, but the woman doesn’t plan on leaving him, and intends to visit him while he is in prison.
It’s thought that the girlfriend does not have any kids of her own, but has relatives of a primary school age.
A source told The Sun: “When the relationship became serious, officials had a duty to inform the woman about his past.
“That included full disclosure about his criminal history, including his role in murdering James Bulger .”

It is not known if she knew his true identity when he asked her to move into his home.
Probation officers are believed to have kept a close eye on the couple but there is no suggestion she knew about the material stored on his laptop.
Venables, who was released on licence in 2001 after serving eight years for the murder of two-year-old James, was returned to prison last November after he was caught with the pictures.
The court heard that upon his arrest he told cops in the police car: “This is my own fault. I have let people down again.
“I have had urges, inquisitive. It won’t be a slap on the wrist for me.” Video Loading Click to play Tap to play The video will start in 8 Cancel Play now
The pictures and videos were mainly children aged between six and 13 years old – but some showed the rape of younger infants.
The Jazz Guide found on the laptop – hidden behind his bed and containing software enabling searched of the Dark Web – was said in court to be a “manual that teaches you how to have sex with little girls safely”.
The court heard it featured a table outlining ‘a guide for f***ing young girls’.
In March 2010, Venables was recalled to prison for downloading and distributing more than 100 images of child abuse. He was jailed for two years before being granted parole again in July 2013.
During his latest trial, in February this year, Venables’ lawyer told the court that since his last release in 2013 – when the Parole Board said he no longer posed a risk to children – he had “held down a job and survived in the community”.

He had been banned from any internet access but had started searching for child abuse images last July, the court heard.
It was also said that he told police last year that he “needed help to understand why he did this and ensure he didn’t do it again”.
Reporting restrictions had been put in place so that the date and place of his trial could not be reported – until they were lifted after the plea this morning.
Britain’s youngest killers, Venables and his friend Robert Thompson, tortured and killed James Bulger in Liverpool in 1993 when they were both aged 10.
They were granted lifelong anonymity with new identities when they were freed on licence. Like us on Facebook
