    Current Disappearance of 3yo William Tyrrell *Homicide gets an AVO *Foster parents face charges of assaults, stalking, intimidation & lying

    What was the legal position of the foster carers - were they employees? contractors? volunteers being compensated for childcare costs? If FM and FF were something like "employees", maybe FACS or the Young Hope program had to provide legal representation for them? Hypothetically, is it possible...

    Current Disappearance of 3yo William Tyrrell *Homicide gets an AVO *Foster parents face charges of assaults, stalking, intimidation & lying

    fazacs1, this isn't exactly what you were wondering about - it's FF's view, not FM's - but it's all I could find, so I think you're right that FM didn't express any regrets publicly (other than at the inquest saying she regretted not taking note of the number plates of the two parked cars which...

    Current Disappearance of 3yo William Tyrrell *Homicide gets an AVO *Foster parents face charges of assaults, stalking, intimidation & lying

    I agree that an abduction scenario is unlikely and hard to believe. It might have happened (whatever happened might have been something very rare). But what I find easier to imagine is an accident that was then covered up e.g. a hit-and-run: which wouldn't have required much other than a vehicle...

    Current Disappearance of 3yo William Tyrrell *Homicide gets an AVO *Foster parents face charges of assaults, stalking, intimidation & lying

    I think it's possible that FA has been eliminated (though as far as I know this news hasn't been reported anywhere else, so maybe there's a chance it's not correct?): the Daily Telegraph (William Tyrell: Police liaising with Deputy State Coroner Harriet Grahame, 07 Sep 2021, paywalled) said that...

    Current Disappearance of 3yo William Tyrrell *Homicide gets an AVO *Foster parents face charges of assaults, stalking, intimidation & lying

    IMO it's clear that William was not looking at FM (if she was the person taking the photo). Her explanation doesn't make sense, but what does that tell us? I think it's possible that William wasn't actively looking at anyone or anything at all. His face and eyes were turned in the direction of...

    According to the Nowhere Child podcast, FGM had come into contact with DN (the person-of-interest mentioned by The Australian this week): from "Eyewitness", 06 Sep 2019 on Listen Notes at about 30:33 minutes but time varies; transcript by me: Caroline Overington: "And we should say that we know...

    Current Disappearance of 3yo William Tyrrell *Homicide gets an AVO *Foster parents face charges of assaults, stalking, intimidation & lying

    Maybe FM was just wrong about William looking at her? I think it's more likely he wasn't looking at anything in particular, just facing in that direction and putting all his attention into the roar. If FM had been standing on the ground near the clothesline (with the floor of the deck level with...

    What was the problem with drinking at the golf club at night time, did they say?

    NRL Fan, what about Kendall State Forest too? Do you know anything about the track (the "fire trail"?) connecting Kendall SF to the end of the bitumen on Benaroon Drive? Satellite views show the gap in the trees has been there for years, so I think if the track had fallen into disrepair and...

    For anybody who can access the article about DN the former POI: does it say what he's been doing or where he's been living since William disappeared? Are there any similarities between William's case and the current one? Thank you.

    Current Disappearance of 3yo William Tyrrell *Homicide gets an AVO *Foster parents face charges of assaults, stalking, intimidation & lying

    I'm not trying to convince anybody. This is just why I think it's a possibility: it's Ocean Drive at Lakewood not at Laurieton; FF was in a 4WD and he reportedly liked off-roading; and there looks to be a well-established track on the verge alongside the road approaching from Kendall: Google...

    Current Disappearance of 3yo William Tyrrell *Homicide gets an AVO *Foster parents face charges of assaults, stalking, intimidation & lying

    Good point, "you could pull up on the verge of the road". There wouldn't be CCTV on the way in and out of the carpark if FF didn't even drive in there.

    Current Disappearance of 3yo William Tyrrell *Homicide gets an AVO *Foster parents face charges of assaults, stalking, intimidation & lying

    I went through some podcasts, trying to find FF saying "Lakewood" to see what he sounds like but couldn't find even one example. In one interview he said instead that he was "in town, near Laurieton". I turned on the YouTube "subtitles/closed captions" option to see how it would translate the...

    Do you mean that it sounds like "Laurieton"? If so, fair enough, maybe that's what he meant. But I think he definitely says there was a "Woolies" there (short for Woolworths supermarket), and according to Google Maps there isn't one of those in Laurieton.

    Current Disappearance of 3yo William Tyrrell *Homicide gets an AVO *Foster parents face charges of assaults, stalking, intimidation & lying

    I don't know how phones and vehicles are tracked (and FF had a laptop with him too, see below*) but unless they were all turned off for an extended period I think a small gap in the records, all at the same time, would look questionable. And based on maps, it looks like the only ways in or out...

    As far as I know, that 30 minutes between the start of the phone call and the end of chemist visit hasn't been explained to the public. FF's call to a recruiter started at 9:45 am, but when did it end? Who knows. From Searching for Spiderman, 2020, p.70: "His meeting with a client in...

    FGM doesn't mention the tea or the bike riding in the 3:17 minutes of the walk-through that were published. But it's possible she might have mentioned them in the parts that were not published. Re the walk-through video in Daily Mail Australia, 7 May 2022: The way I hear it, FGM "finished the...

    Another view of the lower driveway: - from Sydney Morning Herald, 19 Sep 2014 At first I thought it showed a dark vehicle in the garage... but it was just a mirror sticking out the side of the police van.

    Yes, I agree! If there was any chance William had been abducted, wouldn't the first action be to get everyone else (and particularly his sister) safely into the house and lock all the doors and windows and call the police immediately? What if there were other abductors? What if they had weapons?

    The Port Macquarie Independent, 18 Sep 2014, on Issuu, has a photo on the front page showing a partial view into the open garage and also the surface of the lower driveway (which surprisingly looks quite grassy). The caption says it's showing the Saturday (13 Sep).
