Report Shows Shropshire Teenager's Murder Could Have Been Prevented
14 October 2015, 12:39
The parents of murdered Shropshire teenager Georgia Williams say police ignored evidence which could have saved her life.
A serious case review has found police and social services' could have prevented the 17 year olds death.
Georgia's Parents were Steve and Lynnette Williams, believe previous incidents involving Reynolds, who was obsessed with extreme pornography, show he was a ``murderer in the making''.
The report said Reynolds came to the attention of police five years before the murder, when he tried to attack a 16-year-old girl in a "bizarre, potentially serious and unprovoked'' manner but only received a warning from police.
Georgia's mum and dad say action should have been taken back in 2008:
Reynolds, who is a serving a whole life sentence, went on to kill the 17-year-old after luring her into his home in Shropshire in 2013 for a photo shoot.
Student Jadine Dunning had a photo defaced by Reynold's before he murdered Georgia and says she was never told she was a potential target.
Police have admitted they 'failed' the teenager and her family and insist lessons have been learned.
Chief Constable David Shaw is from the West Mercia Force:
Four officers and a staff member face misconduct hearings but have been told they won't be dismissed.
