    Secret recordings of man acquitted of killing boyfriend Matt Leveson

    May 16, 2016 9:44pm

    A SYDNEY man acquitted of killing his young boyfriend, Matthew Leveson, was secretly recorded by a mutual friend after the 20-year-old’s disappearance, an inquest has heard.

    The recording was played at the NSW inquest on Monday after it was discovered with a stash of other evidence in a box by police on February 25.

    The friend, labelled with the pseudonym “Sally White”, wore a police wire when she approached Michael Atkins with questions about his missing boyfriend over a dinner at his home on December 5, 2007.

    In the recording Ms White said police showed her CCTV of Mr Atkins buying duct tape and a mattock the day Mr Leveson disappeared, the inquest heard.

    “I told them that,” Mr Atkins responded.

    But Ms White pressed further: “You told me that you were sleeping at that time”.

    He said he had been sleeping, but only a part of the day.

    A previously unseen excerpt of video footage from a search warrant of the pair’s home on September 27, 2007, was also played at the inquest.

    The inquest heard the 48-minute excerpt wasn’t played because it showed drugs and cash being seized from the home.

    Footage showed police searching the pair’s home as they discovered drugs, believed to be ecstasy and GHB, in the kitchen, along with $3755 cash.

    “It’s Matt’s,” Mr Atkins tells police. “He’s been doing it a while.”

    Michael Atkins apologised to missing boyfriend's parents, court hears

    Tue 17 May 2016, 8:53pm

    A secret recording of a man apologising to the parents of his boyfriend when they confronted him for not telling them their son was missing has been played to a Sydney court.

    The recording was made in January 2008, nearly four months after 20-year-old Matthew Leveson disappeared following a night out with his boyfriend, Michael Atkins.

    Mr Leveson's body has never been found.

    In the conversation, played to Glebe Coroner's Court, Mr Atkins said he loved Mr Leveson, whose mother Faye replied, "But you never contacted us."

    Mr Atkins seems to break down in the recording, and replies: "I know. I'm sorry."

    The audio conversation was part of a previously missing box of evidence that was recently discovered in the roof of a former detective's home.

    The exchange was recorded by police using a listening device worn by Mr Leveson's father, Mark

    Mr Leveson replied: "Why did you let him take drugs? Matt was always anti-drugs, until he got with you."

    The court heard evidence from Detective Senior Constable Damien Bateman who said a series of online chat conversations suggested Mr Atkins was educating Mr Leveson about drugs.

    In one of the messages from February 2006, Mr Leveson appeared not to know the names of various drugs and wrote, "I'm still a drug virgin."

    Speaking outside court, Mark Leveson said: "Our goal has always been to find Matt. To bring him home, lay him to rest."

    Mrs Leveson said: "Not knowing where he is out there, that's the worst ... I just want my son back.

    "Matt was a bright, bubbly prankster. He loved Christmas. He was my Christmas elf. He was a fun-loving kid.

    "He was happy and he'd give the shirt off his back to a friend if they needed it. I just want to bring him home."

    The deputy state coroner, Elaine Truscott, has heard all the evidence in this matter, which will return to court on Friday.

    Remains confirmed as Matthew Leveson's

    After nearly 10 years of searching, the parents of murdered Sydney man Matthew Leveson can finally lay their son to rest, with human remains found in dense bushland south of the city confirmed as his.

    They were taken for DNA testing and on Sunday confirmed as belonging to Mr Leveson, who was last seen nearly 10 years ago, a police spokeswoman told AAP on Sunday evening.
