Detectives Recommend Charges Against William Tyrrell’s Foster Mother

NSW Police have recommended there is enough evidence to potentially charge William Tyrrell’s foster mother over his disappearance.

Detectives have handed a brief of evidence to the Director of Public Prosecutions who will decide if the foster mother – who cannot be identified – will be charged.

They say the woman should be charged with interfering with a corpse and perverting the court of justice.

The three-year-old vanished from a Kendall home on NSW’s Mid North Coast in 2014 and case has been investigated since.

It was first believed William was abducted, however police have in the last couple of years formed the belief he fell from the balcony of his grandmother’s home in Kendall.

William’s body has never been recovered, and his foster mother has always strenuously denied any involvement.

On Monday, William would have celebrated his 12th birthday. Police said in a statement they have not stopped investigating what happened to the little boy.

“As another of William Tyrrell’s birthdays comes and goes — on what should be a happy occasion — the NSW Police Force continues to actively and vigorously search for answers into his disappearance,” the statement said.
