Baby Azaria Chamberlain died "as the result of being attacked and taken by a dingo" in Australia, a coroner ruled 32 years after her death.
Azaria went missing in 1980 from a campsite near Uhluru, then called Ayers Rock, on August 17 1980.
The coroner's findings end a three-decade fight for justice by Azaria's parents, Michael Chamberlain and Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton, who was jailed for three years over her daughter's death before she was later cleared.
Her father was handed a suspended sentence after being found guilty of acting as an accessory but was also later cleared.
Michael Chamberlain said outside the court the ordeal had been "a terrifying battle" but now the family had "a chance to put our daughter's spirit to rest". He and his former wife have always maintained Azaria was taken by a dingo.
The ruling in the northern city of Darwin is the fourth coroner's inquest into the disappearance of the baby.
