This is great news for Daniel's family as well as the many investigators who have chipped away at the case over the last eight years.

Bruce & Denise have been and will no doubt continue to be inspirational people.

Yes, well done to the police, detectives and the parents who refused to give up. As a parent myself, I just hope this animal is never released from prison ever again.

Ummm ..... perhaps he should at least be found guilty first?

Of course you are right KS. However after 8 years, I was assuming the police had their man.
