This terrible case, made worse for the family by Bridger's refusal to say where April's body is, has left a deep scar on the nation.
The NSPCC's thoughts are with her family and friends and we hope this verdict is a small comfort after such a horrendous ordeal.
It seems Bridger lived in a fantasy world which included looking at child abuse images online.
For some time we have been concerned about the growing number of these obscene images which are becoming more easily available and can fuel the fantasies of offenders like Bridger.
This case points to the ever-growing evidence that there is a worrying link between looking at this vile kind of material and committing other serious sexual assaults.
April's death will hopefully lead to effective measures to stamp out this vile trade.
