Mum Tracks Son's Killer

THE mother of murdered British toddler James Bulger has tracked down one of her son's killers but lost her nerve before she could confront him.
Denise Fergus had found out where Robert Thompson, who was convicted at the age of 11 alongside Jon Venables for the murder of two-year-old James, was living.
More than a decade on from the court case, she recognised the child killer at once but was paralysed by fear on seeing him in the flesh.
Thompson and Venables, both now 21, were given new identities and addresses after their release from detention in 2001. The News of the World newspaper says Mrs Fergus was sent a letter by an anonymous "well-wisher" who said although they didn't know where Thompson lived, they were aware of his movements.
The 37-year-old mother of three then went to the area and waited until she found him in September. "I recognised his podgy face and evil eyes in an instant," she said. "It was such a shock to see him in front of me.
"I wanted to rush up to him and scream. 'Why did you kill my child". Yet I was turned to stone - paralysed with hatred." Talking about her reaction on seeing Thompson, she said: "I was close enough to him to know without any doubt it was him.
"I was staring at him and he was none the wiser. Part of me wanted to jump out of the car and punch him but I was paralysed with the hatred I feel for him. In the end, I just stared after him as he wandered down the street."
Mrs Fergus told the newspaper it was now her aim to track down Venables.
"It gives me a sense of power knowing I can spot the bastards," she said. "I have no intention of doing anything. I just want to know what they look like and where they are."
Thompson and Venables, convicted in 1993, spent less than eight years in detention.
