Convicted paedophile Dennis Ferguson (FFX)

Convicted paedophile Dennis Ferguson has been found dead inside his Sydney apartment.

His body was discovered at his unit in the Sydney suburb of Surry Hills around 1 o'clock on Sunday afternoon.

He is believed to have taken his own life.

Ferguson spent 14-years in jail for sexually assaulting 3 children in the late 80s who were just 6, 7 and 8-years-old.

He was sent back to jail soon after his release after being caught wandering through a Parramatta primary school whilst of parole.

  • it is sad... so very sad that the guy had that serious abhorrent disposition .... having said that... sadder is the shocking effect his little victims will live with for all their lives.
    God have mercy on his soul...........
    and earnestly pray for the recovery of the wee children he hurt.

  • @George Tapai - don't worry son, the disgraceful criminal Ferguson is now in his right place! He won't do it again ! And what's more son, his mental condition is also no more son. Also, the creep got off lightly in my view. He should have never been released from solitary confinement.The three children he terrorised and raped would doubtless agree son. Get a life.

  • Your right George, we should go back to treating those with Dennis' condition, as they did in the old days, with a rope.

  • Dear George Tapai,

    I work with this type of poor excuse of human existence everyday. How dare you attempt to justify Dennis Ferguson's abhorrent behaviour purely on a 'mental condition'. Your comment is a reflection is clearly about you and your sad defense of these devious indiduals...think about that....what does that say about you??

  • I don't think a minute's silence will be held or any tears shed to mark the animal's passing. The only regret I had is the pathetic justice system that didn't sentence the despised animal to dark solitary in life imprisonment for the rest of his natural life without parole. But he finally got what he deserved in the end.

  • leave the poor man alone - he had a medical condition that society is not interested in treating or understanding. Shame shame on you red necks.
