Police investigating the 2014 disappearance of little William Tyrell have focused their attention on a fourth person who may have been involved.
According to the Daily Mail, Derek Nichols has been interviewed several times and has had his home searched in relation to William’s disappearance.
The Saturday Telegraph reported that the elderly man is listed on the child protection register, although he himself has proclaimed that he had nothing to do with the child’s disappearance.
Speaking with the Saturday Telegraph, Derek stated:
“I have no connection to the case or the Tyrrell family.”
Derek Nichols is the fourth man to be intensely investigated with potential connections to the disappearance of William and a history of offences against children.
Tony Jones, a convicted paedophile has also been a person of interest and so has convicted paedophile, Paul Bickford.
Tradesman Bill Spedding has also been a person of interest, who is currently on bail for historical child sex offences.
William Tyrrell disappeared from the backyard of his grandmother’s home in Kendall, dressed in his favourite Spiderman Costume, on the NSW mid-north coast on the morning of September 12, 2014. There is an ongoing Police investigation regarding William’s disappearance.
