SICK Paul Worthington boasted he would make £100,000 from daughter Poppi’s death.
Worthington, 50, told friends he designed to sue police for remuneration since they were poorly accusing him of the toddler’s murder.
The ex-Tesco worker, in hiding after a coroner ruled he sexually assaulted 13-month-old Poppi just before she died, said: “They consider we murdered her but they’ve got zero on me.
“There’s no justification and I’m going to sue them. I’ll make £100,000.”
On ex-friend said: “I saw him a few months after Poppi died.
“All he seemed to be worried about was money, not his daughter.
“He wasn’t articulate about how unhappy he was.
“It was ‘I’m going to get all this money’.
“It creates my blood boil.”
Another former crony of Worthington, from Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, said: “He was always going on all the time about how much income he would get.”
Worthington never faced any charges over Poppi’s death since a unfit police review unsuccessful to secure critical evidence.
A coroner last week ruled Poppi was abused by Worthington shortly before she choked to death in his bed.
Worthington, who denies any wrong doing, refused to answer 252 questions during Poppi’s inquest.
POPPI’S MP has launched a campaign to urge child insurance as her legacy.
Labour’s John Woodcock wants a open exploration to safeguard lessons are schooled from her death.
He has created to the PM for her support and set up The Poppi Worthington Petition for Safer Children.
He urged the PM: “Please act to stop other children from being failed.”
