Hacking into murdered Girl’s phone upsets UK Premier

Britain's extensive-running phone scandal has taken a disturbing turn, with alleges that a scandalous newspaper hacked into the phone mail network of a kidnapped young girl and may have vulnerable the police inquiry into her desertion.
Prime Minister David Cameron said Tuesday he was severely shocked by the new allegations and called for a complete police investigation.
"If they are accurate, this is a really terrible act and an actually terrible condition," Cameron said of the charges.
The case engages 13-year-old Milly Dowler, who went missing in 2002 and was afterwards murdered by a nightclub doorman who has been offender of the crime.
The new charges center around the hot News of the World scandalous  which has already seen a number of its news reporters detained for violating into the cell phone voicemail systems of celebrities, sports personalities and royal advisers. The newspaper has acknowledged misdeed and made financial agreements with some of its victims, including actress Sienna Miller.
The newspaper is now blamed of hacking into Dowler's voicemail and deleting numerous messages on her cell phone, giving her parents fake hope that she was alive as well as potentially destroying the police endeavors to search her.
Lawyer Mark Lewis, on behalf of the family, said he plans to prosecute the tabloid for its intrusion in the days after the girl went missing while heading home from school in Walton-on-Thames in the county of Surrey, south of London. Her stays were located in woodlands six months later by mushroom pickers. It was not obvious how long she was alive after being kidnapped.
"It is painful heaped upon incident to seek that the News of the World had no civilization at such a horrible time," Lewis said. "The fact that they were ready to act in such an atrocious way that could have endangered the police inquiry and give them bogus hope is despicable."
The Dowler family says a private prosecutor working for the paper removed some of her messages to make room for news messages. The family was told of the interruption into her cell phone in April, but the allegations were only made publicized on Monday.
News International, the publisher of the newspaper, said the charges were of "biggest anxiety" and said it would be making its own investigation.
"This precise case is obviously a created of great worries and we will be making our own investigations as a conclusion. We will clearly complete assistance with any police demand on this," the company said in a statement.
A private prosecutor and a royal’s editor who served for News of the World were imprisoned in 2007 for tapping the phones of royal household staff.  Another five people have been held since a new police inquiry started in January.
The new allegations have mounted the force on News International UK chief executive Rebekah Brooks, who was the upper level editor at the scandalous when Dowler disappeared.
News International is the key U.K. subsidiary of News Corp. where media tycoon Rupert Murdoch is chief Executive.
Ed Miliband, opposition leader of the Labour Party said Tuesday that Brooks should "think her status" in view of the new allegations, which he said intimidate to put a dirt on British journalism.
