Bill Spedding’s Son Speaks Out About William Tyrrell Case
It's the most frustrating missing person's search involving a child since Madeline McCann went missing in 2007, but Police have made slight headway in the search for William Tyrrell.
Main person of interest, has just been charged with give counts of sexual intercourse with a person under the age of 10 and two of common assault. However, Bill Spedding's son, Rodney, is sticking by his father.
According to a report on the Daily Mail, he has accused police of 'losing focus' in their investigation into the search for the now four-year-old boy who vanished from his grandmother's garden in Kendall on the NSW mid-north coast in September as he played, dressed in his favourite Spiderman costume.
'The attention has overshadowed …They are not going to find [anything] with Bill, but I believe the attention will far outweigh, this will undo everything to do with William Tyrrell while this plays out [his father's arrest] in the media,' he told The Sydney Morning Herald.
In terms of the crimes of which Bill Spedding has been charged (and refused bail), Rodney Spedding says that it was proven years ago that there was not enough evidence to lay charges about these claims which first surfaced from a previous relationship of his father's.
Rodney added that his father, who suffers from Ross River Fever, has really struggled with being in the spotlight since the police first raided his home at the start of the year.
'It's been tough for him, he's been very distraught … It's been hard for him to get on with life afterwards and trying to get over it and move on.'
Bill's granddaughter Maddison has added that grandfather Bill is 'literally the nicest person you'll ever meet.'
