Lead Detective on William Tyrrell case under investigation

AN INTERNAL INVESTIGATION has been launched, after the Detective leading the probe into the case of missing NSW boy William Tyrrell was accused of misconduct.

Detective Chief Inspector Gary Jubelin is no longer working on the high profile case and is being questioned by the Professional Standards Command.

The allegations relate to staff management and using a mobile phone without a warrant to record someone.


Det Jubelin last year led a fresh search for the three-year-old as part of Strike Force Rosann, and an inquest into William’s 2014 disappearance is due to be held this month.

“The acting state coroner and counsel assisting have been briefed, and the William Tyrrell inquest will proceed as planned,” police said.

In September 2014, William vanished while playing in his grandmother’s front yard in Kendall on NSW’s mid-north coast.
