Cops coy on visit to ‘Spiers site’

 POST Newspapers 19 Feb 2022 By BRET CHRISTIAN


Police will not say whether they have visited the Hills site nominated by a horse trainer as the possible disposal site for a body.

The trainer told the POST he recognised an image of Claremont killer Bradley Edwards as the man carrying a shovel he saw emerging from bush at dawn the morning Sarah Spiers vanished ( Horseman reports clue to Spiers site, POST, February 12).

The POST asked police a series of questions based on the man’s account, including whether they had excavated the spot he nominated. He has told the POST the location. This week a police spokesman replied: “The information was first reported to police in October 1997 and has been investigated.

“The further reports received have also been investigated appropriately.

“There is no evidence to validate the information, and the whereabouts of Sarah remain unknown.

“WA Police will never give up in their efforts to find Sarah.”

The trainer contacted the POST because after reporting to police what he had seen, he had no further contact from them.

He said he had not been asked to show police the direction from which he saw the man with the shovel walking.

Sarah Spiers vanished early on the morning after Australia Day 1966, after visiting Club Bayview in Claremont.

Bradley Robert Edwards is serving a minimum 38-year sentence for the murders of Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon, who also disappeared after partying in Claremont in 1996 and 1997.

Edwards was acquitted of the murder of Sarah Spiers.

Because her body has not been found, police were unable to make a forensic link between her and her killer.

The trainer said that after his report, he and another person became spooked as detectives concentrated their investigations on three other local men, including Cottesloe public servant Lance Williams, who in 2009 turned out to have nothing to do with the three murders.

He said he had become alarmed and feared that he would be treated as a suspect.

But recently he read POST editor Bret Christian’s book on the murders, Stalking Claremont, and believed he recognised the image of the man he had seen.

who had to quickly resign form the WA Police after being accused by the High Court of Australia for conspiring with other WA Police and WA Senior DPP Prosecutor Kenneth Paul Bates for conspiracy to pervert the course of justice in Andrew Mallard's murder trial, ad was also accused of interfering in the charging of well known WA Footballer Barry Cable who was accused by a women of sexual assault against her when she was a child

Justice Hall went on to deliver guilty verdicts for the murders of the other two women, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon. For those families, at least, a part of their nightmare was over.

"We were all very, very relieved and happy that we got the result we wanted," says Jenny Rimmer. "And it just seemed unreal that finally he'd been convicted."

Mr Spiers, too, found comfort in those verdicts.

"That gave us great peace of mind that he was going to be put away and taken out of the community," he said. "He'll never bother anyone again."

Edwards hid in plain sight for more than 20 years before his arrest in 2016

Two decades in advancements in forensic science helped unmask the Claremont killer.

When Don Spiers sat in the packed courtroom in the WA Supreme Court in late September he had everything at stake. He had waited 25 years for some kind of justice for his daughter, Sarah.

Twenty-five years of unremitting agony. For a third of his life he had been grieving his child, not knowing what had happened to her.

Sarah Spiers had been the first of three young women to go missing in the wealthy Perth suburb of Claremont where a suspected serial killer had preyed in the mid-1990s. She was only 18. Hers was the only body not found and the lack of physical evidence meant her murder would be the hardest to prove.

Mr Spiers' suffering has been immense. "It never leaves you," he tells Australian Story 16 years after he was first interviewed by the program.

"No matter how hard you try, you can't ignore it. There's probably not an hour of any day that passes that I don't think of Sarah. It was our lovely daughter and we'll never forget that — never, never, ever."

But after the biggest police investigation in WA history, Don Spiers would finally be in the same room as the man accused of brutally killing his little girl.

Bradley Robert Edwards was on trial for the murder of Sarah in January 1996, Jane Rimmer a few months later and Ciara Glennon, a 27-year-old lawyer, in early 1997. All of them had been making their way home from clubs in Claremont when they disappeared.

Three sets of parents became connected by the unthinkable, a profound connection that would sustain them through the trial and beyond the verdict.

Jenny Rimmer still goes to the cemetery and talks to her daughter, Jane.

"She was a lovely little girl. Very bubbly. She was just a delight to be around."

Her daughter was 23 and working in childcare when she had her life brutally taken.

Ms Rimmer's sadness is for the life she never got to live. "I miss her. I just think to myself, she would be married with probably three or four children. She loved children. It's just so sad that she never got to do that."

The arrest of Edwards in December 2016 came as a complete shock to her.

"I never thought they'd find anybody," Ms Rimmer said.

"It had been going on for so long and I just thought it was a lost cause, really."

For Mr Spiers, it was not wholly unexpected.

"I've always had a gut feeling that he would eventually be arrested because forensics were getting better and the police were very determined to get an end result."

Jane Rimmer Last Seen Hitching by 4 Uni Students 12.30 am 9th June 1996 Hitching on Stirling Highway towards the City of Perth 

This fact was deliberately withheld by the Police, the State of WA, the  DPP for WA and the  Prosecutor Carmel Barbagallo SC from the Bradley Robert Edwards/Claremont Serial Killer Trial​ .. The Question Is Why Was This Important Material Fact Withheld?

Another important question to be answered is why the Western Australian Police and Telecom/Telstra did not flag up the name of Bradley Robert Edwards  in the 1995 and 1996 when the WA Police requested from Telecom/Telstra  to supply a list of drivers with access to Telstra vans and cars  in 1995 and 1996 ,,,,,, it is strangely claimed at the trial by the WA Police and Prosecution .... that the name of Bradley Robert Edwards was not flagged up in 1995/1996/1997/1998 as a suspect in the 1995 Karakatta Rape and/or the disappearance of Sarah Spiers in January 1996, the abductions andor murders of Jane Rimmer in June 1996  and Ciara Glennon  in March 1997 ...being the only Telecom/Telstra  employee with access to Telecom.Telstra vehicles who had a serious criminal record of a serious sexual assault conviction for the 1990 Hollywood assault, where the female victim stated she believed at the time that Bradley Robert Edwards was going to kill her.... how and why was the name of Bradley Robert Edwards left off the Telecom/Telstra List of Drivers that had access to Telecom/Telstra vans  and cars in 1995, 1996 and 1997, 1998 ..... one answer could that  the WA Police had already knew that BR Edwards had committed the Karrakatta Rape in 1995 but needed to add his DNA to one of the CSK Victim's DNA and take it the UK for Low Copy Type DNA Testing to help frame BR Edwards for all the Claremont Serial Killings ...  if the WA Police and the DPP for WA are right about BR Edwards being the sole Claremont Serial Killer  ... then if they had done their job properly in 1995 after the Karrakatta Rape happened the police would have  and should have immediately flagged up the name of Bradley Robert Edwards in 1995 by searching the police files for people with similar criminal sexual assault convictions in a nearby area . then the Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon would still be alive...... Hollywood is close to Claremont and Karrakatta and the 1990 Hollywood assault on a female  is a very similar crime to the 1995 Karratta Rape with BR Edwards only having recently  finished his tw year probation period... ... thus it is impossible for name of Bradley Robert Edwards would not have been on their radar and flagged up as a suspect in the 1995 Karrakatta Rape immediately the 1995 Karrakatta Rape was reported....

Claremont serial killings trial hears graphic details of Karrakatta Cemetery rape by Bradley Edwards

By Andrea Mayes

to die.

Key points:

  • The girl was attacked by Bradley Edwards a year before Sarah Spiers went missing
  • Edwards pleaded guilty to the rape charges before his murder trial began
  • The graphic testimony caused a woman to flee the courtroom while sobbing

A 17-year-old girl who was abducted and raped in a Perth cemetery by alleged Claremont serial killer Bradley Edwards said she was so terrified during her ordeal, she thought she was going to die.

A number of statements from the woman, whose name has been suppressed, were read by state prosecutor Carmel Barbagallo SC at Edwards's WA Supreme Court trial on Monday.

Warning: This story contains graphic content that may be upsetting

Edwards, 50, a former Telstra technician, is charged with the wilful murders of Sarah Spiers, 18, Jane Rimmer, 23, and Ciara Glennon, 27.

He was originally charged with a total of eight offences, including three charges relating to the rape of the teenager as well as an attack on another teenager in Huntingdale in 1988.

But he pleaded guilty just weeks before the trial began to all but the murder charges.

Grabbed while walking home

The statements were given to police in the days, weeks and years after the attack at Perth's Karrakatta Cemetery on February 11, 1995 — a year before Ms Spiers was allegedly abducted and murdered.

The woman said she was walking home from Club Bay View, the same venue Ms Spiers last visited before she vanished, when she was grabbed from behind by a man.

Ms Spiers was last seen shortly after leaving the same Claremont nightclub on January 27, 1996.

The 17-year-old described walking along Gugeri Street and then along a path that ran through nearby Rowe Park when the man suddenly seized her.

He threw her to the ground and straddled her while he tied her wrists together behind her back, before stuffing what felt like a thick woollen sock into her mouth.

She began crying but closed her eyes, believing it was better if her attacker thought she had not seen him.

"I initially tried to struggle, but given the size of the man who assaulted me I thought it would be safer not to," she said.

She described her attacker as heavily built, about 185 centimetres tall and Caucasian, with straight, brown hair.

"I kept my eyes closed a lot of the time because I was very frightened," she said.

"I thought I was going to die."

'I can't believe this is happening'

Edwards then carried her to a nearby vehicle, likely a van, tying her ankles together and putting a cotton bag over her head before driving for about 25-30 minutes and stopping the vehicle.

He carried her out then dropped her on the ground, and began dragging her through the dirt.

Too scared to scream or cry out, the woman gave a graphic description of being raped by Edwards.

"I just know that I felt a lot of pain," she said.

"I didn't scream, I just froze basically."

A woman watching proceedings in the public gallery of the courtroom got up and fled from the room sobbing as the statement was being read out.

A desperate search for help

The woman said she kept her eyes closed even after Edwards pulled the bag off her head, because she wanted him to think she was unconscious.

After the attack, he picked the teenager up and threw her into some bushes about 8 metres away.

Edwards finally left in his vehicle and when the girl opened her eyes and got up, she realised she was in the cemetery.

Walking out onto the road, she could see houses nearby but did not approach them, because she "didn't trust a stranger".

Naked from the waist down and with her hands still bound, she tried desperately to cover herself with the denim vest she had been wearing as she ran along the street searching for help.

She came to a nursing home and found a phone on the outside of the building, before managing to knock the receiver off its cradle and dial numbers with her chin.

When a woman eventually picked up and asked where she was, she was unable to say, so she ran off towards the road.

The phone call a parent dreads

Edwards's victim eventually found a public phone box, calling the operator and making a reverse-charge call to her parents' home, where her father answered.

In a witness statement tendered to the court, he said his daughter was "crying hysterically" as she begged him to pick her up.

"She said, 'I was taken by a man and tied up and left at the cemetery'," he said.

The teenager then ran to nearby Hollywood Hospital and banged on a glass door, where she could see a nurse.


"I was hysterical," she said.

The nurse let her in and helped her after she told her she had been raped, and her parents and the police arrived soon after.

She asked him to remove the cord that was still partially tied around her with a very tight knot, which he untied "with difficulty".

The cord was about 4 metres long and he said he thought it was a "Telecom extension cord".

The trial, before Justice Stephen Hall, continues.
