Alleged Admissions by Morcombe Accused

Brett Peter Cowan, the man charged with the murder of Daniel Morcombe allegedly admitted to Queensland Police that it only took seconds to lure Daniel Morcombe from where he was waiting for a bus on the Sunshine Coast before driving him to an abandoned building and choking him to death, a Brisbane court has heard today.

“We’re not surprised by what happened today, we knew it was coming,” Brisbane Criminal Defence Lawyer Michael Bosscher said. “Brett will fight this to the bitter end. He claims he is not guilty of the offences of which he has been charged.”

The committal hearing continues.
