An inquest is being held into the murder of Alice Gross, 14, in 2014.
According to the Mail online Tuesday "Foreigners entering Britain 'were not routinely checked for convictions at the time Alice Gross' Latvian killer came to UK'.
A huge police investigation was launched in the UK after 14-year-old Alice Gross went missing on August 28, 2014.
She was caught on CCTV as she crossed a bridge in London, and minutes later Latvian builder Arnis Zalkalns, 41, was caught on the same camera.
He was cycling along the same canal bridge in the same direction Alice was walking. Alice was never seen alive again.
On September 30, 2014, the body of Alice was found hidden close to where she went missing.
A great deal of effort had been made to conceal her body in London's River Brent.
Police issued a statement days later after finding the body of a man in undergrowth in the vicinity. A man's body was found in dense woodland Boston Manor Park, near Hanwell, west London.
Police said that early indications were that the badly decomposed body was Zalkalns, although that is not officially confirmed. The family of Alice have been informed.
When Alice went missing social media joined in the search posting messages and asking celebrities to join in the 'find Alice' campaign.
A week after she vanished Arnis Zalkalns also went missing.
Police later revealed that Arnis was a convicted murderer; he served jail time in his native Latvia in the 1990s. His victim was his wife at that time. Zalkalns killed her and buried her body in a forest following a row about her sexuality. He brutally bludgeoned and stabbed his wife Rudite to death.
In 2014 we commented "The offence presumably did not bar Zalkalns as a Latvian resident from entering the UK or living here, such is the European Union. He took up residence in the UK in 2007. Police during the search for Gross claimed there was no record in the UK of the murder in Latvia. PM David Cameron added his voice to concerns that a convicted murderer could seemingly easily enter, work and live in the UK."
BBC News reported "Prime Minister David Cameron said he will examine "all the circumstances of the case" surrounding the murder of Alice. He described it as a "horrific case", and said: "Anyone with a daughter will have just felt sickened by what has happened and what that poor family has had to go through"."
Well I have news for you Mr Cameron - you do not need a daughter to be sickened by the murder of Alice.
Zalklns has a daughter who was understandably upset and shocked that her father was the prime suspect in this case.
All you need to be sickened by the killing of young Alice Gross is a heart and to be a decent human being.
