A performing arts student from Kent who sent vile messages to the mother of murdered toddler Jamie Bulger on Twitter has been jailed for three years. Chloe Cowan, 19, from Margate, who wasn’t even born when Jamie, two, was abducted and killed by 10-year-olds Jon Venables and Robert Thompson in 1993, tormented Denise Fergus between January and June 2015. Canterbury Crown Court heard how Cowan, who had a ghoulish fascination with child murder and child rape, set up Twitter accounts as “Bulger’s Ghost” and in the name of Jon Venables, from which she sent Fergus a message saying: “You all know who I am, the lad who abused Jamie Bulger, hahaha.” Source: IBTimes.com
