'Police could have halted snuff killing'.

Byline: MARTIN FRICKER

THE parents of a teenage girl killed for a snuff movie have accused police of letting her "murderer in the making" slip through the net.

The couple spoke out after a Serious Case Review condemned police for failing to prevent the killing of Georgia Williams, 17.

Jamie Reynolds, 23, who got a whole-life tariff for hanging Georgia in 2013, had been given a "final" police warning in 2008 after he tried to strangle a girl.

His parents had alerted police and other agencies to his snuff porn obsession.

Georgia's parents Lynette and Steve, of Wellington, Shrops, accused the West Mercia Police of "stupidity" and "incompetence".

They said: "Having lost Georgia to pure evil, we cried when we read the report and the failings of the agencies."
