An innocent washing machine repairman falsely accused of abducting William Tyrrell alleges that the police threatened to & ruin & # 39;
Bill Spedding was named as a person interested in the boy's disappearance, three, after he disappeared from his foster mother's house on the north coast of the NSW in 2014.
The cloud of suspicion about Mr Spedding has only been lifted – five years later – after his alibi attending his grandchild's school meeting was supported by evidence in a judicial investigation.
Mr. Spedding is suing the NSW police for malicious prosecution and has described the pressure tactics he claims police officers have used against him.
In an extraordinary interview, the trader claimed the ABC's Four corners program that top detective Gary Jubelin told him: & # 39; Mr. Nice Washing Machine Repairman, we're going to ruin you. & # 39;

Former detective inspector Gary Jubelin has denied that he & # 39; those words & # 39; said he & # 39; Bill Spedding & # 39; from Mr. Nice Washing machine repairman went to ruin
Jubelin denied & saying those words & # 39; and said it was the first time he had heard those claims. He does not deny that he spoke to Mr. Spedding.
The former Chief Inspector of the Investigator has since retired after being separately accused of illegally admitting an elderly resident of the street from which William was taken away.
The ABC has revealed that Mr. Jubelin is the second detective who is deeply involved in the search for William & # 39; s killer to continue & # 39; – the first is the officer who interviewed Mr Spedding for six hours in 2014.
NSW Police said Detective Justin Moynihan, was & # 39; moved from the murder team and is on leave pending the outcome of an internal investigation into unrelated cases & # 39 ;.
Fragments of an extraordinary six-hour whim of Mr. Spedding by Mr. Moynihan were broadcast on Monday evening.
During the interrogation, police told Spedding that they believed he was in the house the same day William disappeared.
When Mr. Spedding insisted that he was not, Detective Justin Moynihan said, "But you may not have come to the house, for as we know, William Tyrrell walked through the front yard of his grandmother's house alone."
& # 39; He did not have a single minute of supervision from a parent. We know that. & # 39;
Mr. Spedding maintained his innocence and said: & # 39; No, I never saw him, I never met him. & # 39;
But Detective Moynihan insisted on him and insisted that he be there.
& # 39; We further believe that you may have taken William from that front address from the front yard of that address, you may have left the area without anyone knowing, & # 39; said the detective.
Mr. Spedding replied: & # 39; Well, you apparently believe it because they search the house at home. & # 39;
The detective said: & # 39; We … of course, we … we believe it very much. & # 39;
No forensic evidence was found to link Mr. Spedding to William's disappearance, and he was released without charge.
HOUSE COLLECTED, MEDIA PRESSURE AND A BRIDAL INTERVIEW: POLICE TACTICS AGAINST BILL SPEED
In his Four Corners interview, Bill Spedding, his wife Margaret and lawyer Peter O & # 39; Brien detailed the police investigation against the trader.
They claimed that the NSW Police Force used the following methods to exert pressure on the washing machine repairer:
* The police invaded his home in Bonny Hills in January 2015, while national media reported outside reports.
Researchers emptied the family's septic tank, dug into the garden, searched cupboards and drawers, and searched under their homes
* He was then subjected to a six hour interview with Detective Justin Moynihan, who very much believed the innocent Mr. Spedding police & # 39; told that he had kidnapped William Tyrrell.
The police wrongly accused him of removing a record of a phone call between William & # 39; s foster mother and Mr. Spedding about a washing machine two days before the boy in the Spiderman suit disappeared
* Use of unrelated, later rejected, historical charges for the sexual abuse of children as an & # 39; opportunity for the police to exert a maximum amount of pressure on him & # 39;
Mr. Spedding claims Chief Inspector Gary Jubelin against him after he was charged: & # 39; Mr. Nice Washing Machine Repairman, we're going to ruin you & # 39 ;.
He kept claiming that Mr. Jubelin said: "Every time they talk about William Tyrrell, your name also comes up and, when they talk about you, the name of William Tyrrell comes up."
(Mr. Jubelin has denied & # 39; saying those words & # 39; to Mr. Spedding.)
Detectives are huddled together during the attack on Bill Spedding's house. No costs have ever been charged against the alleged & # 39; interested & # 39;

Mr. Spedding had visited the home of William & # 39; s foster grandparents three days before he disappeared to repair a washing machine, but has long maintained that he was never there again.
Meanwhile, the police invaded his home in Bonny Hills, drained his septic tank, and searched under the house. In an unfortunate coincidence, a Spiderman toy from one of the children under his care was also found in his van.
Mr. Spedding claimed that a detective told him when he left the station: & We know you did it. We're going to get you. I'm going to arrest you. & # 39;
& # 39; I said: & # 39; I have done nothing. What are you talking about? & # 39; And then I realized that they really thought I was involved in one way or another, & said Mr. Spedding.
The police returned to Mr. Spedding's home in April 2015 and arrested him for false accusations that he had abused two young boys more than 30 years earlier.
He was denied the bail and taken to Cessnock prison, where he was met by guards in bulletproof vests.
& # 39; I was undressed naked and the man behind me put his night bar on my neck. He said: & # 39; don't turn around. Don't look at me. You listen to what I have to say & # 39; & # 39 ;, Mr. Spedding said to the ABC.
& # 39; He said, & # 39; we want you to talk. You know what we want to say. We want you to talk, and I'd brag about this … except that I have to clean it up afterwards. Remember, we want you to talk & # 39;. & # 39;
He was released on bail after eight weeks, but by that time his name was known throughout the country as virtually the only leader in William's disappearance.
When the historic charges went to court, the prosecution collapsed and the judge threw the case out.
Daily Mail Australia understands that the president has a rare & # 39; Prasad direction & # 39; has given the jury an option to throw away the prosecution without hearing any comments from the defense.

Mr. Spedding's lawyer, Peter O & # 39; Brien, told Four Corners how police were investigating his client & # 39; charged and problematic & # 39 ;.
& # 39; To get him publicly out of the building in a police car and carry out that search during that period, the obvious effect was to inform the general public that this man was a suspect, & # 39; said O & # 39; Brien.
Moeten We need to know and the public has the right to know and those who love William Tyrrell have the right to know what went wrong with this research? Why didn't they find out what happened to William Tyrrell? & # 39;
An investigation this year found that on the morning William went missing, Mr. Spedding and his wife met for coffee around 9.30 am in Laurieton, a 15-minute drive from Kendall. He has a bank statement that supports this.
Then they went to a school meeting across the street to see that a child under their care was awarded a prize. He could not have taken the child.
& # 39; It took months for the police to speak to others at the school meeting that Mr. Spedding had told them he was present – and at that stage & # 39; people couldn't remember one meeting from another & # 39;, & # 39; said Mr. O & # 39; Brien.

EXCEPTIONAL POLICE INTERVIEW OF BILL SPEDDING
Detective Justin Moynihan: I believe you went to that address on 48 September 2014 at 48 Benaroon Drive, Kendall.
Mr Spedding: I have never been there.
Detective: you were there to repair that washing machine.
Mr. Spedding: No.
Detective: But maybe you didn't get to the house, as we know, William Tyrrell walked alone through the front yard of his grandmother's house, Benaroon Drive, Kendall. He had no supervision from a parent for a few minutes at that time. We know that.
Mr Spedding: I was not there.
Detective: We believe you were there.
Mr Spedding: I was not there.
Investigator: We believe you may have seen William.
Mr Spedding: No, I have never seen him. I never met him.
Investigator: We also think that you may have taken William from that front address from the front yard of that address, you may have left the area without anyone knowing.
Mr Spedding: Well, you obviously believe it because they search the house at home.
Detective: We … of course, we … we believe it very much.
Mr. Spedding: Mmm. I'm sorry I wasn't there.
Regarding Mr. Jubelin, who has taken on a new role as investigative journalist at The Sunday Telegraph, the program said that & # 39; the best thing I could do for Mr. Spedding is to ensure that a thorough investigation was done & # 39 ;
The white goods repairman said his name had been linked to his unnamed case forever.
& # 39; We just don't know when someone emerges from the woodwork and grabs me again and says: & # 39; You are Bill Spedding. What did you do with William? & # 39; & # 39 ;, he said.
& # 39; (My case) has been shattered. In short, the company no longer exists.
& # 39; Up to this point we have had no life at all and we have to start all over again, but the point is that publicity was global. That is damage that can never be repaired. & # 39;
A spokeswoman for the NSW police said they could not comment because the case was the subject of a colonial investigation and an ongoing investigation.

Inquest hears Bill Spedding, an NSW mid-north coast repairman and one-time person of interest in the disappearance of William Tyrrell, met his wife for coffee around 9:30 am in Laurieton, a 15-minute drive from Kendall, the day William went missing.
Then they went to a school meeting across the street to see that a child under their care was awarded a prize.
The investigation heard how a man claiming to see William Tyrrell driving the car unrestrained on the day the child went missing waited for the police to interview him to tell them what he saw.
He told the investigation that he had contacted the police, but did not hear about an interview.
It took nearly 1000 days before he could reveal what he saw in the police.
The coroner orders an urgent probe in the final photo that was taken the day William disappeared because metadata suggests that the photo was taken 118 minutes earlier than originally thought.
The image has a & # 39; created time & # 39; from 7:39 a.m. and a & # 39; corrected time & # 39; from 9.37 am, a new document from the 2000-page proof letter.
The coronary law investigation was postponed for another eight months with the following hearings in March 2020.
