Zalkalns is the prime suspect who is said to have murdered the teenager Alice Gross was not arrested due to lack of substantial evidence against him.

The main criminal involved in abducting and killing Alice Gross may have fled the scene. And furthermore, he may go scot-free due to the fact that there are insufficient clues that point in his direction as the original killer of the teen girl. 

The total amount of evidence necessary to charge him with first degree murder in a European court has not been reached. There was considerable hubbub in the media surrounding the rigmarole of the case. 

Scotland Yard seems to have given up its hands in impatience since the case is a bit too complicated. The murderer named Zalkalns may be brought back from his homeland of Latvia where he had a wife and kids. 

Alice was barely 14 years of age when she disappeared from London. Zalkalns has a history of assault and may even have murdered his wife. He was probably the last individual to come into contact with Alice the last time she was seen alive.  

The major problem is that in his home state of Latvia, Zalkalns may not be arrested even if he were to walk straight into a police station. That is because there are simply no charges against him there. 

Met commander, Graham McNulty said, “We are not at the point of charge, which means we can not effect a European arrest warrant, which means we would not be able to arrest somebody abroad at this point in time.”

Furthermore, there are rumors that Alice is not dead but may be alive and in hiding. If this turns out to be the case than all charges against Zalkalns are bogus. He has a right to go free. It is indeed a complicated and convoluted case. 

McNulty said, “There is no evidence that Alice has come to harm, but we are clearly very concerned for her welfare. I would urge everyone to be cautious about speculating on the exact involvement of Arnis Zalkalns, or any other individual, in relation to this investigation.”

Meanwhile, some missing links in the clues may come soon after intensive investigation by the authorities. Alice’s family is worried sick about her whereabouts. First Alice disappeared and now the man who was suspected of killing her has also gone incognito. 

Zalkalns, who is 41 years of age, has a past record of aggressive behavior towards women. It’s been a month now and Zalkalns remains at large. The police and detectives could do a better job of bringing the culprit to justice.
