    It's also implied I think that although he did perhaps return to Jaaku to bury Rey's parents, he didn't bother looking for Rey despite her mother pretty much obviously lying.

If Ochi wasn't a good assassin, he should have been executed for being useless a long time ago.
    I'd just chalk it up to bad writing and not try to overthink it.

    Palpatine should never entrust an important mission to a dim-witted lackey if he is serious about capturing Rey.

    Agreed Let's not overthink about it.

    Ochi was only sent to find Rey (at the time a child) and deal with her parents who weren't powerful in the force in the slightest. The only way he could screw the mission up is if Rey escaped which she ultimately did and he killed her parents as a result.

    We have no idea if Palpatine ever sent anybody else and probably did.

    Even if Ochi was the only assassin in Palpatine's employ, Palpatine has enough resources to hire a dozen bounty hunters to find Rey. Did he really give up the search after Ochi failed?
    Is it impossible to locate a young girl living on her own on a planet?

    I think it's yet another case of, "Bad writing, don't over think it."

    Kylo Ren does seem to have some kind of vague knowledge of Rey's history apart from the Palpatine connection I think. For instance his reaction in the first film to learning about her for the first time, and knowing that her parents were dead.

    ROS implies Luke and Leia kind of did kind of know something but didn't really had the complete picture.
