CHILD murderer Aaron Campbell has struck up a warped pen pal relationship with a caged sex offender.
Campbell, 19, who killed Alesha MacPhail, six, sends letters from Polmont nick near Falkirk to the beast in an English prison.
An insider said: “They write almost daily.”
And Alesha's great-grandad said her mum would be sickened by the friendship.
George Lochrane, 78, hit out as we revealed the monster’s sordid letter-writing relationship with a fiend who’s doing time in a jail down south.
Guards at Polmont young offenders nick near Falkirk — where evil Campbell, now 19, is serving 24 years for raping and murdering Alesha — are keeping tabs on the pair’s daily correspondence.
George, of Coatbridge, Lanarkshire, said: “It absolutely sickens and disgusts me to hear of it.
“The whole family would be sickened — especially Alesha’s mum Georgina, it would send her right back.
“But it doesn’t surprise me in the slightest — he’s a beast and a leopard doesn’t change its spots, does it.
“I’m just glad to hear the prison knows about it.
“But they shouldn’t be monitoring the letters, they should be ripping them up.
“That evil monster shouldn’t be allowed any pen pals. He should be suffering in his own silence and rotting in his cell.”
Prison staff are believed to have raised concerns about the letter-writing before it was reported to officers at London’s Met police force.
The identity of the English sex offender can’t be revealed.
A source said: “Campbell and this guy are like best pals.
“They have been writing to each other for months now and it became clear he was also a sex offender from England.
“They have developed this really weird relationship and write letters every day.
“As soon as it became clear the guy down south was a sex offender the Met got involved to monitor their communications.”
Campbell was caged for at least 27 years for killing Alesha in Rothesay, Bute, in July 2018.
The Airdrie schoolgirl had been visiting relatives when the predator, then 16, snatched her from her bed. Her naked body was found in the grounds of a derelict hotel with 117 injuries.
Jurors unanimously found Campbell guilty of murder in February 2019 after a trial.
He was not named during proceedings because of his age but was later unmasked in a landmark legal ruling.
Judge Lord Matthews branded him a “cold, callous, calculating, remorseless, dangerous” individual.
His sentence was cut to 24 years on appeal, despite a psychologist revealing his fixation with killing and sex attacks.
We told how Campbell is a hate figure at Polmont, where he is shunned by fellow lags.
Our source added: “No one visits him and he is a recluse. But he gets regular letters from half a dozen different people.
“Why anyone would want to write to him is beyond me.”
The Scottish Prison Service said: “We do not comment on individual prisoners.”
