Killer Mark Bridger, obsessed with child porn, watched violent slasher film rape scene before mudering little girl

bridger‘Fantasist’ Mark Bridger spent decades ‘lying through his teeth’ about his life and tried to cover up his obsession with violent child pornography, rape and murder.

The former lifeguard claimed the disgusting photos he had downloaded were simply to aid his understanding of the physical development of his son and daughter.

It can also be reported for the first time today that Bridger may have been watching an horrific rape scene from a slasher film ‘not long before’ April was murdered.

The former-lifeguard recorded the footage back-to-back on a video cassette so he could watch it over and over again.

When police burst into his home looking for April they found the tape stopped in the middle of the rape scene.

The 47 year old also said his mountain of pornographic pictures was only accumulated because he was concerned about the issue and said he was contacting websites demanding they were taken down.  

Bridger, a father of six, also told Mold Crown Court he would be ‘happy’ to show some of the sexual images of children found on his laptop to his son or daughter if they were ‘learning’ about sex.

Members of the jury were visibly distressed when they were asked to view a selection of the horrific images which included photographs of an apparently dead naked girl being hanged, cartoon images of child rape, a photograph of a Thai girl apparently raped and murdered and an image of a pregnant eight-year-old from the Philippines.

Bridger told police he was hoarding the most disturbing of these images, of which almost 400 were found on his laptop, as ‘proof’ so he could complain about them to the companies in charge of the websites.
