Thomas Cashman is being isolated for his own safety after mobsters hit £250k killer of Olivia Pratt-Korbel
THOMAS Cashman is placed in solitary confinement for his own protection.
The shooter was today sentenced to life in prison for the murder of nine-year-old Olivia Pratt-Korbel in Liverpool in August last year.
The Sun previously revealed how mobsters put a £250,000 bounty on his head for fear he would shop around for other criminals.
He is considered “public enemy number one” at Strangeways prison in Manchester, where he has spent the past few months.
Following his conviction at Manchester Crown Court, where he refused to appear in the dock, he is facing a period of isolation to keep him away from those who wish to harm him.
A criminal in particular will keep an eye on the killer once inside.
Cashman has been linked to the unsolved murder of Karl Bradley, whose body was found covered in snow in a garden.
Investigators believe the 31-year-old was shot when a stray bullet went through the window of a nearby house where two children were sleeping.
He is the brother of gangster Kirk Bradley, who is serving a life sentence for a spate of violent crime in Liverpool.
A source told The Sun: “Cashman will be in isolation for his own sake for a period of time.
“It will be easier for everyone involved.
“There are fears he will eat weed to get an easier life in prison as a whistleblower. And there are also people who want revenge.
“Not least of all Kirk Bradley – who is influential – and has many friends in the prison community.
“Cashman is a real target. The £250,000 bounty will draw people in.”
The bounty was believed to have been distributed to organized criminals across the North West via encrypted messaging app Telegram.
Cashman, 34, was found last week guilty of murdering schoolgirl Olivia and willfully injuring her mother Cheryl Korbel, 46, when he chased convicted drug dealer Joseph Nee into her home in the Dovecot area on August 22 last year .
The jury also found him guilty of the attempted murder of Nee and two counts of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.
He must serve at least 42 years.
