Dad of Alesha MacPhail’s killer Aaron Campbell says son has 'no feelings or empathy'

THE dad of Alesha MacPhail’s twisted killer has revealed how his 16-year-old son had chilling traits of a psychopath – showing no feelings or empathy for others.
Sick teen Aaron Campbell was last week found guilty of abducting the six-year-old girl from her bed before raping and murdering her in Rothesay, Bute, last July.

The 16-year-old now faces life behind bars for the sickening crimes – with dad Chris Campbell revealing how the sick teen was arrogant and had no moral compass.
And in terrifying warning signs, his family was even forced to be on their guard as the Slender Man-obsessed teen would take knives to school.
A source said: “His dad told close friends years ago his son has no empathy. He doesn’t have feelings for anyone else.
“He was carrying a knife from first year and his mum had to go to school daily for a report on what he’d been up to.”
A judge last week took the extraordinary step of lifting the reporting restrictions on the teen’s name, citing the brutality of the crime.
Details of his personality were exposed last week as the order was lifted, with it revealed sadistic Campbell was a cat-skinning monster desperate for fame on YouTube with a warped interest in gory video games.
The depraved teenager was said to be “hooked” on the creepy fictional character Slender Man as he worked on a haunting plan to turn his “fantasy into a horrific reality”.
And in a sinister echo of Campbell’s real-life crime, Slender Man kidnaps and traumatises youngsters.

Investigators have since revealed their fears he could have been a serial killer in the making who would have struck again.
A source said: “He’s an utterly warped individual and we’ve stopped a serial killer in his tracks.
“Slender Man searches were found and, when it was Googled, it chilled seasoned investigators to the bone.
“Some of the circumstances between what this character does and what happened to Alesha were carbon copies.”
During his trial, the coward killer tried worming his way out of his horrific crime by spinning a twisted web of lies in an attempt to pin it on Toni McLachlan – the girlfriend of Alesha’s dad.
He even blamed his own mum, who shopped him to cops when she saw CCTV of her son disappearing into the night to abduct Alesha.
But the fiend was caught out, found guilty of grabbing Alesha from her bed after she fell asleep watching a Peppa Pig DVD.
Alesha, who was just 3ft 9ins tall, suffered 117 injuries and died from “forceful pressure to her neck and face”.

Horrifically, she suffered “catastrophic” sexual injuries both before and after her death after the teenager “brutalised” her.
“Billion-to-one” DNA samples matching the boy were found on 14 different parts of Alesha’s body – including intimate areas and her neck, face and ankles – and her clothing.
Alesha’s mutilated and naked body was found in woods on the Isle of Bute hours later after her devastated family woke up to find she was missing.
