Bridger’s fellow inmate said in witness statement: ‘He believes this ghost to be that of April Jones, who is brought to him by another male ghost’
Victim: April was kidnapped and murdered in 2012
The vile pervert who murdered little April Jones has claimed he is haunted by her ghost.
Mark Bridger told another prisoner he is tortured by visions of the five-year-old appearing in his jail cell at night.
The claims are included in court papers obtained by the Daily Mirror. They were never made public during Bridger’s trial.
In a prosecution witness statement, Bridger’s fellow inmate said: “He told me he [Bridger] thinks he has been visited by a ghost at night.
“He believes this ghost to be that of April Jones, who is brought to him by another male ghost.
“When he has told me about the ghosts, Bridger has been visibly upset.” Former abattoir worker Bridger, 48, kidnapped April in Machynlleth, Powys, before murdering her and dumping her body in October 2012.
He was jailed for life in May 2013 and will die behind bars.
