Douglas Brian Jackway – Repeat Sex Offender – Repeat Child Rapist – ‘Evil eyes’

The victim of a convicted pedophile, named by a national television show as a person of interest in the 2003 abduction of Queensland teenager Daniel Morcombe, says she lives in fear.

The Seven Network’s Sunday Night program last week named Douglas Brian Jackway, 32, as one of a number of persons of interest who could hold key information into the 13-year-old’s abduction and presumed murder.

Police are saying nothing about whether Jackway, who is serving a jail sentence for raping a nine-year-old girl, is being investigated over the abduction.

Jackway’s victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons but used the pseudonym Amy, spoke to the Seven Network about his attacks on her in the 1990s.

She said he held a knife to her throat every time he raped her and made constant threats.

“His eyes, he’s got just an evil look about him,” Amy said.

“He was going to kill me, slice my throat, he made a lot of threats.”

“It was like he owned me.”

Jackway was released from prison a month before Daniel’s disappearance after serving time for attempting to rape a nine-year-old boy in 1995.

His sentence for raping Amy is due to expire in 2012.

She said she lives in fear that he will track her down after his release.

“I want him to stay in there for the rest of his life and rot in hell,” she said.

Amy said she was motivated to tell her story to help other victims and is convinced there is a connection between Jackway and Daniel’s disappearance.

“When I heard about Daniel Morcombe and Douglas was out at the same time, he had the same car, he was travelling up and down from Brisbane to the Sunshine Coast, I really thought he did it.”

The Seven Network said since naming Jackway last week, several prisoners have contacted them to say he has made admissions in jail since Daniel’s disappearance.

They also aired new photographs of how Jackway looks, having previously only shown photos of him as a teenager.
