PAMELA Wright has today vowed to leave Ipswich for good following evil partner Steve Wright's conviction for murdering five sex workers.

The 60-year-old told a close friend she feared she would become an “object of strange fascination” and said some people in the town would never believe she was unaware of her boyfriend's killing spree.

Pamela also revealed she would never again visit 79 London Road - the house of horrors where Wright may have conducted his heinous campaign of murder.

The former call centre worker told the friend: “I never want to set foot in that house for as long I live. I couldn't bear it.

“For all I know, he quite possibly did kill one or more of the girls there - in our bedroom.

“I am never going to set foot in Ipswich again, either. I couldn't face walking through the town with people pointing at me.

“I would be an object of strange fascination and some people in the town will always feel, wrongly, that I knew more than I let on.

“A lot of friends there turned on me when I stood by Steve before the trial.”

Pamela has been living in a safe house in Essex which was provided by police, but she has been told she will have to leave early next month and plans to move to Devon to be near her son Jamie.

The friend said Pamela found the prospect of facing up to the rest of her life daunting.

In 49-year-old Wright's last conversation with Pamela, just after the verdict, it is believed he told her that his legal team was meeting this week to discuss a possible appeal.

Wright was jailed for the rest of his life after a jury at Ipswich Crown Court found him guilty of murdering Tania Nicol, Gemma Adams, Anneli Alderton, Annette Nicholls and Paula Clennell in winter 2006.
