Mr Savage, who has never been charged, lived near the home from where three-year-old William vanished at Kendall, on the NSW Mid-North coast.

Despite being removed from the case, Jubelin said he did have thoughts, "not just gut instinct", on who was responsible for William's disappearance five years ago, but he cannot be "100 per cent certain". Crime has to be solved, fight fire with fire, too much going soft  on criminals. While warrants allowed Mr Savage's home, car and phone to be bugged, Jubelin's 2017 and 2018 recordings weren't made on approved listening devices, which produced poor-quality audio and suffered basic failures such as flat batteries. Jubelin also said he had no animosity towards NSW Police. "He is one of the hardest workers I've ever seen in the NSW Police Force," Mr Kaldas said.

NSW Police were fools to lose him he is the type of officer needed. Mr Tedeschi told the court he attempted to dissuade Jubelin from resigning. In 2019, speaking with journalist Jana Wendt at the Sydney Crime Writers Festival, the father-of-two said he considered his inability to solve it a "personal failure". Jubelin, 57, was on Monday found guilty by a magistrate of breaching the Surveillance Devices Act by recording four conversations with person of interest Paul Savage on a mobile phone.
