Aaron Campbell has been convicted of brutally raping and murdering a 6-year-old girl Alesha MacPhail. The depraved pervert carried the little girl out her bed as she was sleeping and took her to the woodland. He raped the toddler mercilessly and dumped her unclothed body near a hotel with at least 117 separate injuries.
Aaron was already on the radar of the Scottish police and social services for some low-level crimes that he had committed on the Isle of Bute, Scotland. The pedophile is currently facing 24-years in jail for the crimes that he has committed. At first, he was charged with a 27 years sentence but later on after he was proven to be a pedophile and necrophilia, this sentence dropped to 24 years in prison.
Calum- John McPhail, Alesha’s uncle gave a statement to the Scottish Daily Mail saying ” We knew nothing of any warning signs of Campbell’s past. There should be a full investigation to find out if opportunities were missed to save Alesha. We had no idea before this that there were any markers or concerns from Campbell apart from unconfirmed rumors and I’m am angry about that.
A Scottish Government Spokesperson said ” Our sympathies continue to be with the family of Alesha Macphail for their dreadful loss. The local child protection committee undertook an initial view of the circumstances of this case.
He further added ” While that did not find any evidence that this crime could have been foreseen, the local authorities have confirmed that it will review local procedures in light of the findings. We see also considering whether there is any national learning arisen from the review”.
After reviewing all the misdemeanors, atrocities, and the rape and murder of a toddler, Judge Lord Matthews used the words ” Cold, Calculating, Callous and Remorseless” to describe the character of Campbell. The judge also said that only if “a lot of work” has been done by him to change his nature, only then will the court consider to release him after his sentence is over.
