We should never have heard of Bruce Morcombe.
He should be running his business on the Sunshine Coast, making ‘Dad jokes’ and helping his sons choose cars.
But we know Bruce, and his wife Denise because their beautiful boy Daniel was abducted and murdered in 2003.
We don’t need to read more about the horrible day, or the eight years of not knowing what happened; or the fresh horror of knowing.
But now that a man has been charged and a trial is imminent, the media will again drip with fear and anger.
But astonishingly, it won’t come from Daniel’s parents.
