Daniel Morcombe's parents outraged at movie about son's murder
Mornings with Liam Bartlett
The parents of Queensland boy Daniel Morcombe have labelled a new movie depicting the hunt for their child's murderer "callously disrespectful" after its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. Daniel was 13 years old in December 2003 when he was snatched from a bus stop on the Sunshine Coast and murdered. His killer, Bunbury-born convicted pedophile Brett Peter Cowan, was caught after an extensive eight-year investigation. Bruce Morcombe told Liam Bartlett on 6PR Mornings they were calling for a boycott of the new Australian film The Stranger about his son, saying it is "making money off a heinous crime". "The family were blindsided by the making of this movie," he told Bartlett on Friday. "We just feel it was a low blow and uncalled for ... it appears to be glorifying an horrific crime."See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Daniel Morcombe simply wanted to visit a shopping centre to buy Christmas presents. Sadly, the people who caught a glimpse of Daniel at the bus stop were the last people to see the 13 year old alive. Queensland undertook it’s largest ever investigation into a missing person that spanned across several years. The outcome was tragic. What happened to Daniel?
Daniel Morcombe, a 13-year-old boy with bright blue eyes and dark brown hair, stands at a bus stop beneath an overpass. Today, he is wearing a bright red t-shirt. It’s Sunday, the 7th of December 2003, at 2:10pm. He’s waiting for a bus to take him to the Sunshine Plaza Shopping Centre so he can get a haircut and buy some Christmas presents. At home, are his parents, Denise and Bruce Morcombe, his identical twin brother Bradley, and his older brother, Dean. A bus passes but doesn’t stop. On it, is a 13-year-old girl who notices the boy on the side of the road. There’s a gaunt man standing behind him. Another girl on the bus, who is 17 years old, also notices the pair. She will remember the man with him as having long hair, a goatee and sunglasses, with a sports bag by his side. The bus driver motions to the boy that there is another bus coming. But by the time the bus gets there, the boy in the red shirt is gone. In the years afterwards, police would identify and befriend the paedophile they believed targeted Daniel that day. It would become one of the most remarkable police stings in Australian history, providing chilling insight into one of our country’s most evil killers.
