DON’T CALL ME FAT FREDDIE!
Furious feud hitman throwing his weight around behind bars
JAILED killer Freddie Thompson has demanded prison officers and lags stop calling him “Fat”.
The Kinahan hitman has slimmed down behind bars – and wanders about in shorts and dressing gown.
A source said: “He hates the term ‘Fat Freddie’. He doesn’t want prison officers or other prisoners calling him that.”
KILLER Freddie Thompson has ordered inmates and jail staff to drop his gangster nickname telling them: “Don’t call me Fat Freddie.”
The Kinahan cartel hitman, caged for life for the murder of Hutch associate David “Dotty” Douglas, has been throwing his weight around behind bars.
Trigger-happy Thompson, who gardai believe organised at least 14 killings, has told inmates and staff at Portlaoise Prison he wants them to ditch his moniker.
A source told the Irish Sunday Mirror: “He hates the term Fat Freddie. He doesn’t want prison officers or other prisoners calling him that.
“In the run-up to his trial and conviction he went on a strict training and diet regime so he’d look good in court and fit into his suit.
“He was so proud to be in court looking slim. At one stage he even wore a pair of shorts to show off his body. He lost a fair few pounds and has kept it up in jail and lost a bit more since.” Vain thug Thompson, now prisoner 8132, was moved from Mountjoy Prison after being classed as “troublesome” and now spends most of his time holed up in his cell. The bald psycho, 37, has already been moved once since arriving at the high-security Portlaoise compound and is said to be struggling behind bars. The source revealed: “He had to be moved to another landing because of a serious threat on his life from Hutch associates.
“But he’s fallen a long way in the prison pecking order and has gone from being Mister Big to an errand boy.
“He’s now doing shop runs for Warren Dumbrell which is a big comedown for a senior member of the Kinahan mob.”
Thompson is keeping well in with Dumbrell who is considered to be one of the most volatile and dangerous inmates in the prison system. The 44-year-old is currently serving a life sentence for the murder of dad-of-six Christopher Cawley, 33, in October 2006.
He and his younger brother Jeffrey chased their victim into a stairwell at a block of flats in Inchicore, South Dublin, before stabbing him to death in front of his wife and kids.
Dumbrell has been kept away from the general prison population for most of his sentence and has racked up 51 discipline charges.
Now he is regularly seen in the company of slimmed-down Thompson, who sources say has taken to “swanning around the landing in his dressing gown or a tight-fitting pair of shorts”. Thompson was first christened “Fat” Freddie when aged 21 by a rival mob who slapped him with the tag to mock his chubby appearance.
The thug has been unable to shake the nickname despite losing a significant amount of weight over the years.
