New developments in investigation team

Writer / February 28 2019

Top NSW detective Gary Jubelin has been taken off the investigation into missing boy William Tyrrell over alleged misconduct claims.

An internal investigation is underway into Detective Chief Inspector Gary Jubelin who last year led a fresh search for William, Nine News reports.

Detective Inspector Jubelin is being interviewed by the Professional Standards Command over his conduct on Strike Force Rosann which was set up to investigate the three-year-old's disappearance.

The Detective is facing allegations relating to staff management and is also believed to have used a mobile phone without a warrant to record someone, according to AAP.

"A passion for the job is an imperative trait for a detective, robust workplace disagreements are not uncommon," police said at the time. It is unclear whether this pertains to Detective Inspector Jubelin.

An inquest into William's disappearance will be held in March and will run for a week before resuming in August.

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

The little boy went missing in September 2014 while playing in his grandmother's front yard at Kendall, on NSW's mid-north coast.
