    I would estimate a distance of between two-thirds and three quarters of a mile between the house of the accused and the site where the child's body was found

    Poor woman, I hope she doesn't blame herself. She must have had the "if only I hadn't left the key" thought over and over.

    Thread is open again. Please read this post and acknowledge you have done so by clicking the "Like" button.

    It’s up to all members to familiarize themselves with Websleuths TOS aka The Rules. Disregarding TOS is the main reason threads have to be shut down, and that’s just not fair to the majority of members who post in accordance with The Rules, found here.

    Almost 50 posts had to be removed. I did not have time this morning to provide an explanation for so many of them. Some posts were off topic, introducing and discussing details of other cases; some were stating info as fact without MSM links to substantiate or without clear indications that it is only your theory or opinion (i.e. JMO, IMO, i think, i believe); some were seeking to provide or gain info on the accused who LEGALLY cannot be named/sleuthed; some were for bickering or rudeness. These are ALL violation of Websleuths TOS.


    Further failure to comply with WS rules will result in repeat offenders receiving a timeout or a thread reply ban. Worst case scenario is the discussion thread gets closed down with only a Media Thread – No Discussion accessible. Nobody wants that to happen.

    Couple of side notes:

    There is no guesswork in LAW. It is important that you provide a link that validates what you are saying or interpreting about law. For example, this thread is for a case in Scotland where someone from the USA or Germany, etc posts their thoughts or guesses that may have no relation or application to the law of the land in Scotland. If you are going to discuss law, make sure you find appropriate legal links to substantiate what you are saying.

    Please do not reply within a quote. Use the “Reply” feature in the bottom right of the post you wish to quote, otherwise your quoted post will not appear correctly.

    Thank you all for your co-operation.

    So that might indicate this was a crime of opportunity? If the key wasn't in the lock how was he planning on getting in?

    This says to me that the door was usually locked, which would be sensible if you have a young child staying.

    The accused mother and sister should be treated like victims in this case, because they are, just like Alesha,s family, yet they have had to move away and hide

    Like someone else said, we have to remember this is the worst crime in modern history for Scotland

    Do we know for deffinite his mum and sister have had to move? Yeah I agree. They are victims and his mum did 100% the right thing and reported the cctv to the police. It must of been hard for her to do but I’m glad she did. I do feel very sorry for his mum. The way she comes across in court. How awful must it feel knowing you gave birth to a monster who could do that to a child. The locals should not be punishing her and caused her to move from her house because he is the one responsible...

    Guilty as Charged, sentence next, from back to the future, theres no way he will get off with this, you have to say good police work, good Scottish court system, although that shall be judged by the people once he has been convicted and his sentence has been passed
