The search for the little boy in the Spiderman suit.
The search for the little boy in the Spiderman suit raises more questions than it answers. Every twist and turn new questions, new suspicions, new theories and new hopes. Yet… it remains unsolved.
The Disappearance of William Tyrrell breaks down the investigation into a step-by-step analysis, told through the captivating story skills of Australian journalist Caroline Overington, who has been covering the case since the beginning, and through the explosive first-hand experience of former Detective Inspector Gary Jubelin.
With each episode asking new questions, pointing the finger at multiple potential perpetrators and exposing each theory as perplexing as the next. Using key interviews with police and witnesses, Caroline builds the story of a case that has confounded and confused, exposed corruption, torn apart the NSW homicide squad and devastated families.
The William Tyrrell case is perhaps Australia’s most mystifying, and terrifying missing persons case. The fact is, no one knows where William is. We don’t know whether he is dead or alive. There have been cases in the US of abducted children turning up years later. Biological parents and foster parents can be desperate to keep a child if they think they may lose custody.
Children are hard to hide –but it can be done. If the little boy is dead –most murderers make mistakes. DNA is left, people talk, evidence slips.
Surely there is something? For William, there is nothing.
