A Queensland man who agreed to pay pregnant teenage prostitute Tiffany Taylor for sex the day she disappeared was found guilty of her murder.

Traces of Ms. Taylor’s blood were found in Williams’ Hyundai sedan, prosecutor Philip McCarthy, QC, told the jury during the three-and-a-half-week trial.

“On the glove box, on the headrest of the passenger seat … on the front passenger seat, on the gear lever,” he said.

Williams’s car was then spotted in the Fernvale area, west of Brisbane, where police have unsuccessfully searched dams and bushland for Ms. Taylor’s body ever since.

The jury saw a series of posts between Williams and Ms. Taylor offering him $ 500 ABC reported.

Ms. Taylor regularly used the Oasis dating website to meet men for paid sex.

Williams pleaded not guilty to her murder, but a jury on Friday found him guilty of intentionally murdering the teen

At his closing speech, McCarthy said that Williams sent Ms. Taylor a few hours after meeting her to try to hide his tracks.

“Sorry I didn’t show up. Decided I wouldn’t pay for it, “the message read.

“The first thing he did is create a fake digital footprint, a fake digital trail that denies any physical contact with that girl,” McCarthy told the court.

“A pretext for the world that he had never met her. A pretext for the world that he thinks she is still alive.

Williams pleaded not guilty to her murder, but a jury on Friday found him guilty of intentionally murdering the teen.

Justice Anne Lyons will punish him later on Friday.
