A man with a history of preying on children has been found guilty of murder in one of Australia's biggest-ever missing person cases.

Father-of-three Brett Peter Cowan was convicted of killing 13-year-old Daniel Morcombe, who was last seen waiting for a bus in northern Queensland in 2003.

His disappearance sparked a huge nationwide search, which was followed by years of false leads and dead ends avidly followed by public and press alike.

The case came to trial after an inquest in 2011 delivered a breakthrough which saw Cowan charged with Daniel's abduction and murder.

The 44-year-old was caught confessing to the killing in an undercover sting.

Police then began searching the Beerburrum State Forest for the teenager's remains, which were eventually found in 2013.

Cowan, who was also convicted of interfering with a corpse, faces a life sentence for the murder with a minimum of 15 years without parole.

He is expected to be sentenced next week.

In a statement read out in court, Daniel's mother, Denise, revealed she still had nightmares and was haunted by images of her son lying in "dark eerie bushland being destroyed by wild animals".

"This day hasn't brought closure, but the streets are safer without you walking them and looking for your next target to destroy," she said of Cowan.

Daniel's father, Bruce, added: "I often wonder about the other victims you have left in your wake. Sitting in the same room as you revolts me."

Documents painted a disturbing picture of a serial sex offender who had been abusing children since he himself was a child of nine or 10.

He was first convicted in 1987 at the age of 18 for molesting a seven-year-old boy in a public toilet.

The court heard he was a "pathological liar" and drug user with a long criminal record for everything from stealing to gross indecency.

Cowan, who pleaded not guilty, married when released on parole in 1998 but continued his offending, which ended with the abduction and murder of Daniel.

It actually means they forgive themselves.Or to be more precise they don't blame themselves.

From day 1 , the McCanns never admitted responsibility , or showed remorse , but even if they win the Trial and know they cannot be charged without a body, I think they will feel guilt that they were responsible for their daughters' death.

If they felt guilt they would off done right by Madeleine.


Somehow i get this feeling they blame their own daughter for her own fate....



'the position Madeleine find herself in'.......that says it all for me.

'it was like finding out you have exceeded your student loan'


Comparing your daughter to finding out you haven't got any money in the bank........I hope all this money they have conned people out off is making up for their loss.....certainly makes them smile...a lot.

Yes of course, they don't think they have done anything wrong. kate $ gerry, I mean. If you forgive yourself, it gets easier to keep public profile, for money and fame.
