BILL Spedding, a person of interest in the case of missing NSW toddler William Tyrrell has taken to the internet to protest his innocence.
Mr Spedding appears to deny his involvement in the disappearance of the three-year-old in the video uploaded to YouTube yesterday.
“My wife Margaret and I offer the Tyrrell family our sincere commiserations in the disappearance of William Tyrrell,” he said.

“I wish to state that I have no involvement in the disappearance of William Tyrrell.”
The 63-year-old said he attended William’s grandmother’s home on September 9 2014 and returned on September 18 2014 to complete the job.
“I have not been in the Tyrrell house or to the Tyrrell house or to the street, before, between or after these dates,” he said.
“The media have reported that I was supposed to have attended the Tyrrell house on the 12th September 2014, this being the day of William’s disappearance.
“I wish to make it perfectly clear this claim is completely false.”
Young William suddenly vanished while playing outside his grandmother’s home at Kendall on the NSW mid-north coast on September 12 last year.
