Police suspect body may be Alice suspect

Police searching for Latvian builder Arnis Zalkalns – the prime suspect in the murder of schoolgirl Alice Gross – have said the body of a man found in dense woodland may be his.

Alice, 14, from Hanwell, west London, went missing on August 28 and police confirmed on Wednesday that her body had been recovered from the River Brent in west London, near where she was last seen.

Scotland Yard said: “Although no formal identification has been made early indications suggest the body may be that of Arnis Zalkalns. We have updated his partner and a family liaison officer is supporting her.”
