Daniel Morcombe investigation
Butler McDermott Lawyers involvement
Our firm represented the family of Daniel Morcombe at the coronial inquest into the his disappearance on 7 December 2003. The Morcombe family requested an inquest by the then State Coroner Michael Barnes and the inquest opened in October 2010 at Maroochydore.
Our involvement was extensive and involved months of preparation and weeks at the Queensland Coroner's Court prior to it being adjourned after information transpired as a result of the inquest, which then saw Brett Peter Cowan eventually charged and convicted by Jury with Daniel's murder.
