12/02/1993 Murder of James Bulger

Two-year-old James Bulger was abducted, tortured and killed by two young boys, Robert Thompson and Jon Venables. Bulger was led away from the New Strand Shopping Centre in Bootle as his mother had taken her eyes off him momentarily. His mutilated body was found on a railway line 2.5 miles away in Walton, Liverpool, two days after his murder.
