Child sex offender Dennis Ferguson found dead in Sydney

CONVICTED child sex offender Dennis Ferguson has been found dead in his Sydney apartment.

NSW police have confirmed the body of the 64-year-old was discovered by paramedics on Sunday afternoon.

Ferguson became one of Australia's most infamous paedophiles after he was given a 14-year sentence for his part in the abduction and rape of three children in Brisbane in 1987.

Authorities tried to relocate Ferguson to Ipswich after his release, but were forced to change their plans following an aggressive public backlash.

It is believed he was dead for several days before his body was found.

A post mortem will be carried out to confirm the cause of death, however police believe there are no suspicious circumstances.
