Con Bayens, former head of a WA prostitution taskforce, says he could have met the Claremont killer

The sister of a Perth girl who vanished more than ten years ago after developing a friendship with an older man who has since been convicted of attempting to murder a prostitute has told the inquest into her sister's suspected death she always found the man "creepy".
Sarah Anne McMahon was 20 years old when she disappeared on October 8, 2000.
The last phone call Ms McMahon answered was from Donald Morey, then 45, who has since been convicted of attempting to murder a prostitute in 2003.
Counsel assisting the coroner at the inquest into the suspected death of Ms McMahon told the court Morey's attempt to strangle the woman to death came days after a fellow sex worker from the same Highgate strip had gone missing.
Ms McMahon's sister Amanda Smith giving evidence to the Coroner's Court on Monday said Morey met her sister at her house a couple of years before her disappearance.
When Ms Smith returned from living in regional Western Australia after a period of months she discovered "Don" and her sister were speaking on the phone "all the time", something that worried her, she said
"He was very interested in her – too interested," Ms Smith said.
"He was always trying to charm her."
Ms Smith said she found Morey "creepy".
Morey has never been ruled out as a suspect in the suspected death of Ms McMahon, Detective Darryl Cox told the Coroner's Court.
A special police unit that manages WA's cold cases reopened the case of Ms McMahon's disappearance last year and reinterviewed several witnesses.

One witness – a prostitute whose name has been protected – changed her original statement to make shocking claims that she saw the naked body of a woman she believed to be Ms McMahon in Morey's bedroom with a robe looped around her neck, counsel assisting the coroner Philip Urquhart told the inquest in his opening submissions.
The inquest is expected to hear the woman claimed she helped clean up the house after something wrapped in a quilt was removed from the bedroom.
The woman told police she wanted to "tell the whole truth" about what happened to Ms McMahon last year because she believed she was suffering from a terminal illness, Mr Urquhart told the inquest.

who confessed to the wife of his boss that he has killed many times before, and would be happy to murder her husband if she wanted this to be done, after overhearing a bad argument between his boss and his wife..

It is also noted that a member of Gangland has informed the NYT.bz investigators that a small tear drop tattoo under the ones eye is a visable mark to those in Gangland who know that its means, that the person with such tear drop tattoo under their eye has committed a Gangland murder ... under instructions senior people in Gangland .... and a second tear drop tattoo under the other eye means that the person has committed art least one other Gangland murder ... under instructions senior people in Gangland .... and once two Gangland murders have been committed, by the person, there is no further tear drop tattoos placed under one's eye .. so two tear drop tattoos represents two or more  Gangland murders ... under instructions senior people in Gangland.

Claremont serial killer 'trial of the century' could blow out to $100 million
https://www.watoday.com.au/national/western-australia/claremont-serial-killer-trial-of-the-century-could-blow-out-to-100-million-20190508-p51l4w.html
By Heather McNeill May 8, 2019 

The Claremont serial killer trial - expected to take nine months - could cost up to $100 million, according to a prominent Perth lawyer.
The longest murder trial in West Australian history will take place in the same court room where barrister Lloyd Rayney was trialled and cleared of his wife's murder in 2012.
That trial, according to Nine News Perth, ran for three months and cost around $20 million.
District Court courtroom number 72 is the largest court in the state, and will host the Supreme Court trial of accused man, Bradley Robert Edwards.
Perth lawyer, Tom Percy QC, said the proceedings, expected to begin later this year, would be "up there with anything that we've ever seen".
"I think the Rayney case was at least its equal, but that didn't have the chance to ferment in the public domain as this one has over 20-odd years," he said.
"This is in fact three cases running together, three separate murder allegations which all have to be compartmentalised and dealt with separately.

"I can't imagine there would be much change out of $100 million."
Mr Edwards will spend around 1000 hours sitting in the court room, separated from the public gallery by a pane of glass.
The family of the three murder victims, Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon, will have access to the unused jury room during breaks in the trial.
The ten allocated media seats inside the court will not be enough to meet the level of public interest in the case, with a separate room expected to be set up for some journalists to watch the proceedings through a live stream.

More than 550 prosecution witnesses are expected to be called throughout the trial.
It's estimated it costs around $13,500 a day to run a criminal court room, and the additional services required for the media sitting in on the case is estimated to cost an additional $800 a day, meaning the logistics of the trial alone will cost around $2.5 million.
Mr Percy said it was important to get the mammoth trial right.
"I think the important thing from the community's perspective is it's done exactingly, it's done carefully, and no corners have been cut, because we all want to say at the end of the day that we're confident that the correct result was achieved," he said.
Mr Edwards' legal bill for his defence will be footed by tax payers through Legal Aid.
His lead defence lawyer, Paul Yovich SC, is understood to be demanding just a quarter of his usual $5000 a day rate, to represent him.
More than $3.3 million has already been allocated to the prosecution before the trial has begun.
Lead prosecutor Carmel Barbagallo SC previously flagged the trial involves more than one million pages of evidence and will require its own electronic database.
The trial is scheduled to start on July 22, but that date will likely be pushed back after the state introduced potential new evidence in April, which needs to be reviewed by the defence.
Mr Edwards has pleaded not guilty to all charges against him, including the murders of three women between 1996 and 1997, a sexual assault in 1995 and a sex attack in 1988
 
The Claremont serial killings - a timeline

February 1988 Huntingdale attack charges: A 19-year-old Mr Edwards, living in his Huntingdale home with his family, is accused of entering a woman’s house and attacking her inside her bedroom by sitting on her back and attempting to force fabric into her mouth. She struggles and he runs from the house. 
Proposed evidence: The attacker leaves behind a women’s kimono stained with his semen DNA profile. The state alleges the DNA matches Mr Edwards' DNA profile.
1988 Huntingdale prowler: The state alleges Mr Edwards prowled the streets within a one kilometre radius of his home, stealing women’s underwear and night gowns, and on occasion wearing them. 
Proposed evidence: The prowler leaves behind finger and palm prints and foot impressions at a residence. The state alleges the fingerprints match Mr Edwards'.
May 1990 Hollywood Hospital assault: Mr Edwards confesses to attempting to drag a social worker into a toilet block at Hollywood Hospital, where he was contracted for work at the time. Mr Edwards gagged the woman with a piece of cloth, but she managed to fight him off. Police later found cable ties in his pockets. The incident occurred after Mr Edwards had learned his then-girlfriend had cheated on him.
Proposed evidence: Mr Edwards’ fingerprints were taken and entered into WA Police’s database.
May 1990 Mr Edwards pleads guilty to the common assault of a social worker. He is sentenced to two years’ probation.
February 1995 Karrakatta Cemetery rape charge: Mr Edwards is accused of abducting and raping a 17-year-old girl late at night as she walked to a friend’s house from Club Bay View in Claremont. He allegedly bound and gagged the teenager, and placed a hood over her head, before driving her to the cemetery to rape her.
Proposed evidence: DNA of the Karrakatta cemetery rapist is taken from the victim, who attends hospital that evening. The state alleges it matches Mr Edwards' DNA profile.
January 1996 Mr Edwards’ marriage begins to breakdown and he learns his wife is having an affair. She moves out of their home, leaving him alone.
January 1996 Sarah Spiers murder charge: Sarah Spiers, 18, is last seen leaning on a Telstra bollard waiting for a taxi in Claremont after a night out with friends. The taxi arrives soon after but Sarah is already gone. Around 20 minutes later, witnesses in Mosman Park hear “blood curdling screams” and a car matching the description of Mr Edwards’ is seen in the vicinity parked on the wrong side of the road with its lights on.
May 1996 Mr Edwards learns his wife is pregnant to another man.
June 1996 Jane Rimmer murder charge: Ms Rimmer, 23, is allegedly taken from Claremont by Mr Edwards and murdered in Wellard, where her body was later found in bushland. Her cause of death is unknown as her remains had decomposed, but a post-mortem noted a ‘prominent defect’ to her neck.
Proposed evidence: A Telstra-branded knife was found on the same road as Ms Rimmer’s remains. As a Telstra technician, Mr Edwards was issued with the same type of Telstra knife prior to the Claremont killings.
Proposed evidence: Fibres found in Ms Rimmer’s hair match the car seat fibres in the make and model of car Mr Edwards was driving at the time.
1995/96 The state alleges a man matching Mr Edwards’ description and driving a Telstra car offered young women in the western suburbs lifts home late at night. It’s alleged he picked up women on five occasions and dropped them at their requested destination.
March 1997 Ciara Glennon murder charge: Ms Glennon, 27, is murdered after allegedly being taken by Mr Edwards following a night out with friends in Claremont. The lawyer’s body is later found in bushland in Eglinton, covered in a “strikingly similar way” to Ms Rimmer’s body. Her cause of death is a cut to the thoat.
Proposed evidence: The state alleges Mr Edwards’ DNA was found underneath Ms Glennon’s fingernails.
Proposed evidence: The state alleges fibres found in Ms Glennon’s hair match fibres found in the car seat of the make and model of vehicle Mr Edwards was driving at the time.
Proposed evidence: Mr Edwards was meant to stay over at a friend’s house the night Ms Glennon was murdered, but instead arrived mid-morning the next day. He said he was late because he was trying to reconcile with his wife, which the state claims was a lie.
April 1997 Mr Edwards meets the woman who would go on to become his second wife.
December 2016 Mr Edwards is allegedly editing erotic stories involving abduction and sexual assault themes in the days before his arrest.
December 2016 Police conducting cold case reviews test a kimono found at a 1988 Huntingdale assault for DNA evidence and allegedly find DNA matching the profile of the Claremont serial killer. The case is reinvestigated.
December 2016 Mr Edwards is arrested during a dramatic raid of his Kewdale home and charged.
September 2018 Mr Edwards pleads not guilty to all charges against him.

Seven News reporter Alison Fan looks back at the many clues that until Friday had seemed to lead nowhere in the Claremont serial killer search.
A serious question that needs to be answered by Karl O'Callaghan, the Western Australian Commissioner of Police is:
Why did it take over a week for the Western Australian Police for come and collect a bag belonging to career criminal and convicted attempted murderer Donald Morey which the two owners of the house in Marangaroo, Mr and Mrs Gareth Allen who were the bosses of Donald Morey say contained a real of silver, gaffer tape, two knives and explicit pornographic material of what looked like dead women in sexual positions...
which is similar to the items that Western Australia Police officer  Con Bayers, who was the former head of the prostitution task-force said he found in Donald Morey's Commodore Holden car boot driving through Northbridge, Perth, Western Australia, that looked liked and unmarked police car 

Australia - Sarah McMahon, 20, Perth, WA, 8 Nov 2000

A cold case review of both investigations was launched last year and Morey said he was still in contact with Ms McMahon, who he claimed was living in Canada with her two children.
Coroner Alastair Hope said on Thursday that because Ms McMahon had not contacted her loved ones in more than 12 years, he was confident she was dead.
"The circumstances in which Ms McMahon disappeared are sinister and I have confidently been able to exclude the possibility that she died by way of natural causes, accident or suicide,'' he said.
If Morey (the murderer who was last seen with her) was in contact with Sarah all these years -- can't he provide proof she is alive? Like .. an address? Phone number? Something? And why would she speak him and him alone and not her family - for 12 years?
How is this Morey guy NOT charged with something in this case? Thank goodness he's inside, anyhow, and not roaming free.

CORBOY J:
1 The respondent stands charged by an indictment alleging eight offences - three counts of murder; two counts of deprivation of liberty; two counts of aggravated sexual penetration without consent and one count of aggravated burglary. He has pleaded not guilty to each charge.
2 The State applied for an order under s 118 of the Criminal Procedure Act 2004 (WA) (CPA) that the trial of the charges be by a judge alone without a jury. The respondent consented to the application and I made the order sought by the State. These are the reasons for the order.

Reasons for Decision include:
The State rightly concedes that it cannot be concluded that a jury could not understand the DNA and other forensic evidence but attributing appropriate weight in the context of a circumstantial case, and the drawing of inferences from the evidence, will add a further layer of complexity to the fact-finding process. Again, this factor, viewed in isolation, might not be a sufficient basis for concluding that there is a real risk that the respondent would not receive a fair trial according to law if an order was not made for trial by judge alone. However, as with the graphic nature of the foreshadowed post mortem evidence, the likely complexity of expert and forensic evidence to be presented in the trial reinforces the conclusion that the trial of the charges alleged against the respondent should be by judge alone.

ROYAL COMMISSION INTO WHETHER THERE HAS BEEN ANY CORRUPT OR CRIMINAL CONDUCT BY WESTERN AUSTRALIAN POLICE OFFICERS

COMMISSIONER: G.A. Kennedy AO QC
Held at Perth on the 5th day of August, 2003
Counsel Assisting Mr S.D. Hall
https://www.slp.wa.gov.au/publications/publications.nsf/DocByAgency/22989B6C018248E148256D750031382A/$file/S030805.pdf


A police whistleblower in a corrupt political system
 Frank Scot
https://www.bmartin.cc/dissent/documents/Scott17.pdf


 Both major political parties in West Australia espouse open and accountable government when they are in opposition, however once their side of politics is able to form Government, the only thing that changes is that they move to the opposite side of the Chamber and their roles are merely reversed. The opposition loves the whistleblower while the government of the day loathes them. It was therefore refreshing to see that in 2001 when the newly appointed Attorney General in the Labor government, Mr Jim McGinty, promised that his Government would introduce whistleblower protection legislation by the end of that year. He stated that his legislation would protect those whistleblowers who suffered victimization and would offer some provisions to allow them to seek compensation. How shallow those words were; here we are some sixteen years later and yet no such legislation has been introduced. Below I have written about the effects I suffered from trying to expose corrupt senior police officers and the trauma and victimization I suffered which led to the loss of my livelihood. Whilst my efforts to expose corrupt police officers made me totally unemployable, those senior officers who were subject of my allegations were promoted and in two cases were awarded with an Australian Police Medal. I describe my experiences in the following pages in the form of a letter to West Australian parliamentarian Rob Johnson. See also my article “The rise of an organised bikie crime gang,” September 2017, http://www.bmartin.cc/dissent/documents/Scott17b.pdf

Hon. Robert (Rob) Frank Johnson MLA JP Suite 2, Endeavour House Corner Endeavour Road and, Banks Ave, Hillarys WA 6025 (08) 9307 8311

Dear Mr. Johnson

My name is Frank Scott and I am a former detective sergeant who was discharged from the Police Service after alleging that some members of the police hierarchy were corrupt. I had intended to contact you last year when I saw the “death notice” you placed in the paper after Peter Ward had died. I had no idea that you and he were friends but I am sure that if you knew Peter well, you would have found him to be an extremely honest person and one that went out of his way to help people who needed legal assistance.

During the time when Peter was the Ministerial advisor to the Police Minister, he was contacted by an informant who claimed that Detective Sergeant Colin Pace had been receiving corrupt payments from prostitutes and illegal gaming operators whilst he was the officer-in-charge (OIC) of Port Hedland CIB. The informant also told Peter to contact me and I would be able to provide evidence of a corrupt association between detective sergeant Colin Pace and race horse trainer, Bob Meyers.

This incident occurred when I was the sergeant-in-charge of the CIB Bank Fraud section and detective senior sergeant Pace was my direct supervising officer. I was able to glean evidence that sergeant Pace had concealed a letter of complaint and supporting documentary evidence which had been forwarded to the Fraud Squad for investigation by a large corporation who came to the conclusion that race horse trainer Bob Meyers had presented them with a fraudulent cheque. He was then responsible for falsifying the file register which I maintained to record details of all the investigations carried out by my subordinate officers.
Detective sergeant Les Ayton who subsequently became the Deputy Commissioner of Police was also a serving member of the Fraud Squad at the time of this incident and had a close friendship with sergeant Pace. Both of them had previously served in the Fraud Squad together years earlier when the Commissioner of Police, Brian Bull was the Senior Sergeant-in-Charge of the Fraud Squad.
As a result of the allegations of corruption levelled at sergeant Pace, the Minister of Police forwarded a memo to the Police Commissioner requesting that an investigation be initiated to determine whether it was appropriate for sergeant Pace to be promoted to the rank of Inspector.
The Commissioner of Police Mr Brian Bull conducted two corrupt internal investigations into the antecedent conduct of sergeant Pace and both these investigations exonerated him from any malfeasance. In his report to the Minister, the Commissioner claimed that the allegations made against sergeant Pace were totally unfounded and he had an excellent service record which warranted his promotion. To support his findings, the Police Commissioner attached a statement prepared by brevet Inspector Les Ayton as a character reference attesting to sergeant Pace’s merit for promotion.
When brevet inspector Ayton was promoted to rank of superintendent as the inaugural OIC of the Police Internal Affair Unit which had been created by the Commissioner of Police to investigate police corruption, I provided him with overwhelming evidence that clearly established that Inspector Pace was corrupt and had been for many years. I also informed him of the corrupt conduct of several other high ranking members of the police hierarchy that included the chief superintendent in charge of the Criminal Investigation Branch and the chief superintendent in charge of Crime Services.

One of my allegations against them which superintendent Ayton failed to investigate related to the incompetent or corrupt manner in which these officers had condoned the outlaw motor cycle gang “The Coffin Cheaters” to illegally supply and distribute vast amounts of prohibited drugs, launder large sums of money, and illegally trade in liquor at their annual Bindoon concerts. In addition, I advised him of the inappropriate manner in which some of these members of the police hierarchy had invited a notorious criminal and the head of this organised crime gang to attend and address a police briefing prior to that concert.

At that briefing which comprised some 20 sectional leaders including myself, the head of this outlaw motor cycle gang began to give us instructions as to how we were to perform our duties at that concert. It was sickening to watch senior police management cower to his demands, knowing that this criminal and his criminal mates would be free to peddle their drugs at their concert with total impunity. I was the only one who challenged his commands and I became extremely concerned with his overtly close relationship with some senior police officers.

Later, after examining records at the Liquor and Gaming Branch, I was able to ascertain that the Director of Liquor Licensing had refused to grant a Liquor Permit to the “Coffin Cheaters” in a Liquor Licensing Court hearing two years earlier. In his written decision, he concluded that many of “Coffin Cheaters” club members had extensive criminal records and a total disregard for the law and therefore were not fit and proper persons to be involved in the sale of liquor on such a large scale as was intended at the Bindoon Rock Festival.

In his written decision, he wrote;

 “My third concern is whether the Club is a fit and proper person, or body of persons, to hold the permit. One of the objects of the Liquor Act is to ensure that liquor is not sold by persons who are not fit and proper to do so. In this case, the Club is not a legal entity (although it is related to companies which are). The Club comprises about 15 members. Many of those members have a long history of criminal offences. Mr Withnell, for example, has several convictions for offences in the mid 1979’s. These include assault, carrying an offensive weapon, disorderly conduct, possessing an unlicensed firearm, and, most seriously rape. For the last of these, he was sentenced to 11 years imprisonment with hard labour. He has received other gaol sentences for serious assault and a further eight years imprisonment in 1979 for robbery with violence. Other members, such as Patrick McKay, Bradley Wood, Christopher McKay, Peter Jewell, Mark Ashelford, Gut Turtun, Larry Allen, Trevor Walton, George Cole and Jeffrey White have also been convicted of many serious offences in the 1970’s and 1980’s. These cover a wide range of offences against the person and property, as well as unlawful possession of drugs and firearms. Some occurred within the last year or two. (In mid – 1987, for example, Jeffrey White was sentenced to 18 months gaol for receiving stolen goods) While in most case, the most serious offence occurred several years ago, the nature and extent of the offences have led me to conclude that many of Club members have a disregard for the law and that, as a result, they are not fit and proper persons to be involved in the sale of liquor on such a large scale as is intended at the Bindoon Rock Festival.

Despite the fact that there was a Liquor Licensing Court ruling that the members of Coffin Cheaters outlaw motor cycle gang were not fit and proper persons to be issued with a Liquor Permit, senior police officers continued to allow this organised crime gang to sell liquor at their annual concert. It was inconceivable that they would also consider it appropriate for the head of this outlaw motor cycle crime gang to be invited to address a police briefing and allocate duties to police officers who had a responsibility to ensure that his criminal motor cycle gang complied with their legal liabilities.
I advised superintendent Ayton that I strongly suspected some senior police officers were consorting with one of the most feared criminals in West Australia and had assisted him in circumventing a court decision by allowing his crime gang to continue to conduct their annual Bindoon rock concerts. I also advised him that I led a team of undercover officers inside the compound during that concert where we obtained photographic evidence of the illegal manner in which it had been conducted and evidence of the vast amount of prohibited drugs which were being openly distributed at the concert.
Once the chief superintendent-in-charge of Crime Services had discovered that I had that photographic evidence, he seized those photographs from me and was attempting to stifle my endeavours to commence criminal proceedings against the “Coffin Cheaters” licensee company and its approved manager.

Superintendent Ayton listened to my allegations and I expected that he would conduct a covert investigation into my claims. I certainly did not consider that he would immediately approach those members of the hierarchy who were subject of my allegations and informed them of my complaint against them. Needless to say that was the end of my police career and the following day I received a telephone call from the chief superintendent of Crime Services who demanded that I attend his office forthwith. As I had anticipated his response, I attended his office with a small tape recorder and as I sat down to commence our interview, I produced my tape recorded and told him that I would be recording our conversation. When I turned on my tape recorder, he started making threatening gestures at me without saying anything while he waited for a superintended to also attend his office and act as his corroborator.

During that interview, I was told in no uncertain terms that my position as officer-incharge of the Fremantle Liquor and Gaming branch had been terminated with immediate effect and that I was being transferred back to Perth the following day to commence an investigation into the accusations of misconduct, impropriety and corruption I had made to superintendent Ayton. He instructed me to liaise directly with him and I was not to discuss my investigation with any other person. Should I need to refer to any police documents during my inquiry, I was ordered to notify him prior to taking possession of the relevant document. In effect, I was being commanded to conduct an investigation into the complaints that I had made to superintendent Ayton and report the findings of my investigation directly to one of the persons who I alleged had acted corruptly. (I did exactly that)

To support my investigation, he provided me with a small interview room within the Liquor and Gaming branch which contained a table, chair and telephone and told me I was to occupy that room during this special project. Further, he said that this special investigation which he had assigned for me was not a result of any malice he harboured towards me, but because of the expertise I had shown in researching and submitting a comprehensive 20 page report that I had handed him some months previously and had also forwarded a copy to superintendent Ayton
I had submitted that report after receiving a complaint from the detective sergeantin-charge of the Port Hedland CIB who advised me that some managers of licensed premises had a complete disregard for the laws relating to the Liquor Licensing Act and the Gaming Commission Act, which resulted in illegal gaming and prostitution becoming entrenched in some licensed premises at Port Hedland.
In an attempt to disrupt these illegal activities, the local police had conducted an investigation into the manner in which the licensee of the Pier Hotel had conducted his business and forwarded a brief of evidence to the superintendent in charge of the Liquor and Gaming branch seeking his authority to commence legal proceedings against the offenders. However, he failed to respond to their request and the police officers at Port Hedland had become extremely disillusioned by his apathy as they considered that ample evidence had been attained to sustain a conviction against the licensee. The superintendent-in-charge of the Liquor and Gaming branch had previously served as the inspector in charge of the Port Hedland police station and knew the licensee.
As I continued my interview with the chief superintendent, he stated that he had great confidence in my ability to adduce the necessary evidence to substantiate criminal charges against all those offenders and expected that I would bring my investigation to a succinct conclusion within three weeks. He also gave me explicit instructions to commence disciplinary charges against a subordinate colleague of mine and charge him with “unlawfully consuming alcohol at an unlicensed restaurant” in Broome while he was on annual leave. As our interview terminated, I advised both of them that I had an appointment to see superintendent Ayton the following day and would be playing the recording of our interview to him as I considered that I was being persecuted for simply performing the duties expected of me as a senior investigator in the liquor and Gaming branch.

After listening to the tape recording, superintendent Ayton said that he considered me to be a competent investigator and advised me to comply with the instructions given to me by the chief superintendent. Despite my protests that it was unethical for me to conduct an investigation into my own complaints against a senior member of the police hierarchy who was my supervising officer, he assured me that he would protect my back and guaranteed that I would not be victimised and my investigations would not be thwarted or impeded. When I told him that the three weeks I was given to conclude my investigation was totally inadequate and I expected it would take me six months, he advised me to submit a short report and apply for an extension of time and he would ensure that it was granted.

As I began my investigation, I immediately discovered that some police files which I requested to examine had been destroyed and I was being victimised and ostracised by the chief superintendent who thwarted my investigation and circulated rumours throughout the police service that I was a nut case. My peers within the Liquor and Gaming branch were instructed that they were forbidden to speak to me or assist me in any way during my investigation.

After the three week period which I was given to complete my investigations had expired, I submitted a short report as I had been advised to do so by superintendent Ayton, stating that I had nowhere near finished my investigation and requested an extension of time to bring my investigation to a satisfactory conclusion. That request was denied and instead, the chief superintendent instructed me to reorganise the Liquor and Gaming branch file room which was the normal duty of our office cadet.

When I reported these matters to inspector Watson of the Police IAU, he told me that he had no knowledge of my investigation and stated that I always had the propensity to swim against the tide. I was completely flabbergasted by his remarks and considered that he was derelict in his duty for failing to support my investigation into the suspected corrupt activities of senior police officers.

Whilst performing the demeaning task of reorganising the file room which was in a chaotic state, some of my colleagues were secretly providing me with information. I was able to ascertain that the chief superintendent had forwarded my investigative reports to the OIC of the Police Internal Investigators and demanded that I be charged with criminal defamation. Amongst those reports which I had provided him, was the result of my investigation into the instructions he gave me to commence disciplinary charges against a fellow member of the Liquor and Gaming branch. My investigation concluded that there was prima-facie evidence that he himself had committed an offence under the provisions of the “Police Regulations” and I recommended that disciplinary charges against him should be considered.

also received information that after he was advised by the OIC of the Police Internal Investigators that there was no basis for any criminal charges against me, he decided that when I returned to work after completing my annual leave, he would have me sent to a psychiatrist with a view to have me certified insane. After Superintendent Ayton returned from England, I confronted him and provided him with a copy of all my investigative reports which I had submitted to the chief superintendent and told him that I had received reliable information that he was about to order me to be examined by a psychiatrist with a view to have me certified insane. He laughed and said they were trying to break me and wouldn’t allow that happen. However, he failed to mention why I was not given an extension of time to complete my investigations or why I was not protected from victimization as he had promised.

I knew my police career was over shortly later when I was served with a notice by the commissioner of police ordering me to present myself for a psychiatric assessment by Consultant Physician in Psychological Medicine, Professor Allen German. In his report, Professor German stated that he could find no evidence whatsoever of any diagnosable psychiatric disorder but considered that I was suffering from a work related stress disorder because of the serious conflict I found myself with senior police management. He further stated that my condition would only get worse if I remained in that causal situation and therefore recommended that I be discharged from the Police Service on medical grounds.

When I found out that Professor German had recommended that I be discharged from the Police Service on medical grounds, I again confronted superintendent Ayton at 1.00pm on Monday 23 March 1992 and handed him a copy of a 132 page treatise I had written about three years earlier which dealt with the corrupt conduct of members of the police hierarchy and the corrupt association between detective inspector Colin Pace and race horse trainer, Bob Meyers. I kept that treatise confidential for my own protection as I expected that corrupt senior members of the Police hierarchy would attempt to victimize me as a result of the stance I had taken against detective inspector Pace who I knew was being groomed to become the next Chief Superintendent in charge of the CIB.

After completing that treatise, I gave a copy to two people I knew I could trust, Mr Peter Ward at the Police Minister’s office and a detective inspector who was my best friend and supplied me with some information of police corruption. I was motivated to write that exposé of corruption by members of the police hierarchy sometime after the 4 August 1988 when Mr Peter Ward from the Police Minister’s Office had brokered a meeting between me, the deputy commissioner of police and the assistant commissioner of police (crime).
That meeting had been instigated after Mr Ward received a telephone call from the assistant commissioner of police on 28 July 1988 who wanted to meet him in his office to discuss matters relating to police corruption. When Mr Ward arrived at his office, the deputy commissioner of police was also present and during their discussion, the assistant commissioner of police said;
“Young Scottie has got this bee in his bonnet about police corruption. There is nothing in his allegations. It’s just sour grapes on his behalf because he got the sack from the CIB.”
Mr Ward responded by telling the two senior police officers that he knew exactly what evidence I had and he considered that the WA police force had a similar problem as in Queensland but on a smaller scale and that cancer needed to be cut out. He told them that he supported me 100%. The assistant commissioner then said;
“If Scottie has got all this information, why doesn’t he come and tell us?”

Mr Ward replied by telling them that if they could show me that they could be trusted, perhaps I would speak to them and he also stated that I was prepared to take my allegations of corruption to the wire. It was then, that the assistant commissioner of police advised him that they would like to speak to me.

Mr Ward purposely did not tell them of his own personal knowledge of the corrupt association between detective inspector Pace and race horse trainer, Bob Meyers after his former girlfriend had attended the Police Minister’s office in late February 1988 to complain about police corruption. During his meeting with Bob Meyers’s former girlfriend, she complained of the inept manner in which the CIB Consorting Squad had conducted an investigation into a brutal baseball bat bashing of her boyfriend and his companion which had been organised by Bob Meyers.
She advised Mr Ward that she had made a complaint to detective sergeant (name deleted) at the CIB Consorting Squad some months prior to that assault and told him that Bob Meyers was known as the “Godfather” who could easily arrange violent beatings and that he was being protected by detective inspector Colin Pace. She also informed him of an occasion when inspector Pace was present at Bob Meyers’s racing stables when he and his criminal associates were dividing up stolen property. Despite providing the detective sergeant with that information, he failed in his duty to investigate her allegations and had he done so, the bashing of her boyfriend and his friend may have been averted.

She also advised Mr Ward that during that brutal baseball bashing of her boyfriend and his companion, they sustained serious injuries which required hospitalisation and yet Bob Meyers had been charged with a trivial offence which was totally inconsistent with the severity of the crime. She strongly suspected that the detectives in the Consorting Squad had corruptly reduced the seriousness of the criminal charges against Bob Meyers because of his friendship with inspector Pace.

Some weeks later, Mr Ward also received a visit from an apprentice jockey who was employed by race horse trainer Bob Meyers and he wanted to make a complaint against inspector Pace and Bob Meyers who he claimed had ripped him off about $50,000. He also alleged that they had stolen his cabin cruiser boat registered number 21395 and trailer registered number UWA 974 and that the detectives at Belmont CIB had refused to investigate his complaint.

As a result, Mr Ward contacted the Department of Marine and Harbours and obtained a computer printout of two boats which were identical except for their colour. Both boats were currently licensed; the first was numbered 21395, named “Miss Attwood Phantom” and was registered to the apprentice jockey on the 30/5/85. The other boat was numbered 19400 which had been first registered to Colin Burns Pace on the 10/3/86.

He provided me with the computer printout of the details those boats and we agreed that it appeared highly likely that the same boat was licensed by two different people. Mr Ward also arranged for me to meet with the Director of the Department of Traffic Licensing and Services in Mount St, Perth where I obtained a computer printout of the history of boat trailer registered number UWA 974 and found that the licence of that trailer had been transferred into the name of Colin Burns Pace on the 1/3/1986 without the consent of the jockey who was the lawful owner.

I was later able to establish that inspector Pace had a corrupt association with a vehicle examiner at the Welshpool Traffic Licensing Centre where Bob Meyers had previously obtained a vehicle licence for one of his horse floats without the required vehicle inspection. That same corrupt vehicle examiner at the Welshpool Licensing Centre conducted the vehicle inspection on trailer registered number UWA 974 on the 21/3/1986.

I then drove to Belmont police station where I obtained a photocopy of the of the “offence report “which was submitted after the apprentice jockey had reported his boat and trailer stolen. The yellow copy of the “offence report” was normally forwarded to a detective for investigation and it clearly showed that the suspected offenders for stealing the boat and trailer were Colin Pace and Bob Meyers.

In those days the police used to investigate themselves and in circumstances where a criminal complaint was made against a serving police officer, it was incumbent of the OIC of the Belmont CIB to notify the Commissioner of Police or the OIC of the Police Internal Investigating Unit so that a senior officer above the rank of Inspector could have been appointed to investigate that complaint. However, no investigation was carried out and the “Offence Report” was marked “no offence” and filed.

I strongly suspected that within minutes of the jockey reporting his boat and trailer stolen, inspector Pace would have been advised of that complaint and would have instructed the junior officer to file the report as a civil dispute and not a criminal matter.

The day after Mr Ward had his meeting with the two members of the police hierarchy, he phoned me and asked me to come over to his office where he told me about the conversation he had with them. After he had described the details of that meeting, I told him that the assistant commissioner of police was being unbelievably and transparently duplicitous as it was him who had set up a Task Force in mid April 1988 to investigate Bob Meyers and his corrupt association with inspector Pace. He was also responsible for arranging a motel room in Como where the Task Force members could meet without inspector Pace’s knowledge and he was fully aware that I was a member of that Task Force.
During my meeting with both the deputy commissioner and the assistant commissioner of police on the 4 August 1988 at the Police Minster’s office, I advised them of the manner in which detective inspector Pace had attempted to thwart the Task Force investigation into the criminal conduct of his mate, Bob Meyers and also of the evidence I had gleaned which established that inspector Pace had stolen a boat and trailer belonging to an apprentice jockey. I also told the assistant commissioner of police that I was disgusted in the manner in which he had sacked detective senior sergeant Kevin Rowe, who was also a member of this Task Force and transferred him from the CIB back into uniform.
He said;
“His transfer had nothing to do with this inquiry. Kevin’s work is not up to standard and he would have been sent back anyway. I didn’t want the same thing to happen to him as did to (name deleted).
He spent all his career in the CIB and when he was about to be promoted to Inspector, they sent him back to uniform.”
I said;
“Well, why did you tell him his job was safe in the first place?”
He said;
“I instructed for him to be told that he wouldn’t be transferred while he was on that Meyers inquiry. That inquiry is now finished.” I said; “I have just sat here and told you how Pacey tried to stop that inquiry. What has been done about that?”
He said;
“We didn’t know about all these matters.”
I said’ “(name deleted) (Task Force Commander) knew. We kept him informed exactly what Pacey was doing. I have given him all documents and statements I took regarding the theft of (name deleted) boat. He has had them for months and has done nothing about it. Don’t you talk to him?”
He said;
“(name deleted) (Task Force Commander) has told me that boat is a civil matter.” I said; “How can he say that? He hasn’t even started to do the inquiry yet. Everything that Meyers and Pacey do is written off as a civil matter. If Pacey could have had it his way, that (name deleted ) extortion file would have been written off as a civil matter. In every complaint against Myers, Pacey sticks his nose in and writes it off. That is the only reason why that criminal hasn’t been locked up ten years ago.”
The Assistant Commissioner of Police was obviously embarrassed by my questioning because he could not give an adequate response.
….………………
Detective senior sergeant Kevin Rowe had been the genesis for the establishment of a Task Force formed to investigate the criminal activities of race horse trainer, Bob Meyers and his corrupt association with inspector Pace. He contacted me on Friday, 10 March 1988 and at that time he was the senior sergeant in charge of the CIB General Crime Squad and was shortly due to be promoted to the rank of Inspector.
He informed me that he would like me to arrange a meeting with the Police Minister’s adviser, Mr Peter Ward as his divisional inspector, Colin Pace was attempting to prevent his promotion and sack him from the CIB in a similar fashion as he had done with me; as he too had been able to obtain evidence of his corrupt association with race horse trainer, Bob Meyers.
Detective sergeant Rowe told me that one afternoon inspector Pace had instructed him to go downstairs at Police Headquarters and bring a woman to see him named Nellie Smith who was waiting in the foyer. He did this and thought nothing more about the matter. Shortly after that incident, he had a visit at home from an elderly male who lived nearby and complained that his family was receiving threatening phone calls from Bob Meyers.

His daughter had previously worked for Bob Meyers at his racing stables and was now receiving threatening calls from him because he believed she was responsible for the break-up of his relationship with his girlfriend. Sergeant Rowe advised his elderly neighbour to make an official complaint to the Police regarding those threats. However the neighbour insisted that he should speak to his daughter so she could tell him a few things about Bob Meyers.
Sometime later, his neighbour’s daughter and another woman who he recognized as Nellie Smith had come to see him in his office at Police Headquarters. Nellie Smith was a factitious name and she was actually Bob Meyers’s former girlfriend. Both girls made accusations of the corrupt association between Bob Meyers and Inspector Pace and told him also that they suspected that it was Bob Meyers who had organized the brutal bashing of the Turf Club Steward.
As a result of what the girls told him, Sergeant Rowe took them downstairs to see the detective sergeant (name deleted) at the Consorting Squad who was handling the investigation into the Turf Club Steward bashing. There they advised him that Bob Meyers had given a baseball bat to her son as a gift and they strongly suspected that bat had been used in the bashing.
During that meeting with the sergeant from the Consorting Squad, the girls told him that Bob Meyers was known as the “Godfather” who could easily arrange violent beatings and that he was being protected by detective inspector Colin Pace. They also informed him of an occasion when inspector Pace was present at Bob Meyers’s racing stables when he and his criminal associates were dividing up stolen property.
At the conclusion of the meeting, it was decided to obtain that baseball bat for forensic examination, however the former girlfriend claimed that Bob Meyers’s criminal gang had her home under constant surveillance so it was decided that Sergeant Rowe’s neighbour would obtain the bat and convey it to his residence.
It became immediately apparent that Bob Meyers had been tipped-off about that meeting because shortly later, the elderly neighbour had received another threatening phone call from him. On this occasion, Meyers threatened to kill the elderly male, his wife and daughter and boasted that he had friends high up in the Police Force and that he would get his friend, Superintendent Pace, to prevent detective sergeant Rowe’s promotion in the Police Force. After the neighbour had received that threatening phone call, he made notes of those threats and gave them to Sergeant Rowe.
It was these matters that detective sergeant Rowe wanted to discuss with Mr Peter Ward and on the 16 March 1988, I drove Mr Ward to Sergeants Rowe’s residence. There they discussed the threats Bob Meyers’s had made and how those threats were now materialising with detective inspector Pace’s attempting to sack him from the CIB.
Mr Ward gave Sergeant Rowe his advice as to how he should respond to inspector Pace’s report and on completion of that meeting, Sergeant Rowe suggested that Mr Ward should speak to the daughter of his neighbour who previously worked for Bob Meyers.

He stated that she had lots of information regarding the corrupt relationship between Bob Meyers and inspector Pace but was too frightened to report these matters to the Police because she knew that Bob Meyers would find out and her physical welfare would be in extreme jeopardy.

On 23 March 1988, I made arrangements to interview the young lady and I drove Mr Ward to her address. There he took notes as I interviewed her and she made a series of allegations which included that Bob Meyers ran a prostitution racket and was receiving police protection; he would regularly meet with his criminal gang in the Casino in an area which was not covered by security cameras.

 

She also claimed that on one occasion, Bob Meyers had fired his shotgun at a dwelling and that inspector Pace had got him off any criminal charges. On another occasion whilst she was employed by Bob Meyers, he instructed her to go to the Midland Traffic Office to re-license one of his horse floats. When she returned, she informed him that they wouldn’t re-license the float without a vehicle inspection. Bob Meyers then made a telephone call to a person named (name deleted) at the Welshpool Licensing Centre and he arrived shortly later at the racing stables with new set of plates for the horse float.

Bob Meyers then made a telephone call to a person named (name deleted) at the Welshpool Licensing Centre and he arrived shortly later at the racing stables with new set of plates for the horse float.

Danny Hobby was the jockey who had entered into a conspiracy with Bob Meyers and Laurie Connell to fix a horse race, the 1983 Bunbury AHA Cup by taking $5,000 bribe to jump off his mount at the starting gate. However at this point in time they had not yet been charged with that offence as they were still being protected by corrupt senior police officers that included detective inspector Pace and Superintendent Bernie Johnson.

Superintendent Johnson was a co-director of a private import/export company together with Laurie Connell and another senior police officer and was also the prime suspect for the murder of brothel owner, Shirley Finn. During Laurie Connell’s subsequent conspiracy trial about a decade later both Superintendent Pace and Superintendent Johnson had left the Police Force and were engaged as private investigators for Connell’s defence team.

Sometime later I also received information that Danny Hobby was related to a detective sergeant who had been the best man for Bob Meyers when he married the niece of Perth City Councillor, Mr Sam Franchina.

 

THE AGE FRIDAY 24 JANUARY 1992 - Mr Connell, 45, was charged late last Saturday with conspiring with a former trainer, Robert Meyers, 45, and a former jockey, Danny Hobby, 28, to fix a horse race at Bunbury nine years ago. They are also charged with conspiring to pervert or obstruct the course of justice by arranging payments to Hobby to keep him out of WA. In court yesterday, the prosecution asked that a condition of Mr Connell's bail be that he not contact his co-accused or Crown witnesses in the case. His lawyer protested, and the magistrate agreed, that Mr Connell could hardly give such an undertaking given he did not know who the witnesses would be.

 

The following day, March 24 1988, I received a phone call from a girl employed by Avis and she wanted to know the whereabouts of the vehicle as it should have been returned on 21 March 1988. I told her I would see if the vehicle was still located at the same address and I would then come and speak to her.

I drove past Bob Meyers’s stables and after ascertaining the vehicle was still there, I attended at Avis office at the airport and informed the girl that she may have trouble retrieving their vehicle as there was a large group of people currently at that address. I told her that I would accompany one of their male employees to that address in case there was any violence.

The girl drove me to the International Airport to pick up the male employee and as we turned into Tonkin Freeway, I saw Bob Meyers’s Mercedes Sedan, parked inside the Marraconda Motel. After picking up the male employee from the International Airport, I drove to Bob Meyers’s stables in Belmont where the hire-car was retrieved and driven back to the Avis Depot near the Airport.

There, I searched the vehicle, registered number 7YJ 121 and found that newspaper pages had been laid out in the boot and woodchips were scattered on the pages of newspaper. In the glove box, I located a piece of paper with a hand drawn map on it. A street name was identified and a square showed the name of (name deleted) and indicated his home address.

On returning to my office, I entered the name (name deleted) on the computer. However there were too many listings under that name and I was unable to locate that person. That evening, I telephoned detective sergeant Kevin Rowe and told him what had occurred.

Sergeant Rowe said;

“I don’t believe it. I know (name deleted). He lives in (street name deleted) just near my place. I spoke to him today and he told me that he had hired Bob Meyers to give (name deleted) a hiding. I have known both of them for years. They have been having a dispute over a horse float for a long time and I told (name deleted) that it was a civil matter. When I spoke to him today, I asked him if he got his horse float back. He told me he got the horse float back yesterday after Bob Meyers’s goons had given (name deleted) a bashing with a baseball bat. I was just about to give you a ring and tell you about it.”

 I said;

“That explains the hire car. I thought Danny Hobby hired the car for a bloke who arrived from the east. I came to that conclusion because I saw Bob Meyers’s Mercedes parked at the Marraconda Motel in Great Eastern Highway.”

Detective sergeant Rowe called me back later that evening and stated that he had spoken to (name deleted) who was too frightened to make a complaint to Police because they threatened to kill him if he reported the matter. They told him that he had to pay Bob Meyers $2,500. (name deleted) also told sergeant Rowe that he had been to see Bob Meyers that day and arranged to pay him off at $100 per week.

I said;

“I saw (name deleted) car at Meyers place today. I took the registration number of that car in my notebook. It was a brown Torana, number (number deleted) licensed to (name deleted).

Sergeant Rowe said;

“I have had a good word with (name deleted) and he’s prepared to speak to Peter Ward.”

I said;

“It’s gotten to a bad stage when a person is too frightened to go to the Police to make a complaint.”

The following morning, I took the exhibits which I had collected from the hire car and went and spoke to the senior detective sergeant in charge of the Consorting Squad who I knew well as he had been my boss some ten years earlier when we worked together in the Dealers Squad. I knew him to be a straight shooter and told him what had occurred and informed him that (name deleted) would only speak to Mr Peter Ward at the Police Minister’s office because he didn’t trust any coppers.

The senior sergeant said;

“He may as well go and see Ward because I can’t conduct any inquires into Meyers. (The chief superintendent), wants to know about every inquiry that we are doing and the minute he knows there is an inquiry into Meyers, we may as well forget it. The chief superintendent tells Pacey and Pacey runs straight back to Meyers and tells him everything. I am disgusted in the whole situation. We know a bloke named (name deleted) is responsible for some bashings and he runs a security firm called (name deleted) and coincidently Pacey is the Inspector-in-Charge of the Commercial Agents Squad. Do I have to say anymore?”

I said;

“Do you want me to leave these exhibits here with you or take them myself to the Fingerprint Section?”

He said;

“You may as well do it yourself. It is pointless us getting involved.” I then took the exhibits to the Fingerprint Section and handed them the exhibits which were subject to their job number 180/88 dated Friday 25 March 1988.

On or about Monday 28 March 1988, I went to the Bureau of Criminal Intelligence (BCI) and spoke to constable (name deleted) and told him I was working on Bob Meyers and wanted to know if they had any criminal intelligence on him.

He advised me that he was fully aware of his corrupt association with a particular detective inspector and showed me some intelligence reports of his criminal associates. One of them was (name deleted), a member of the Mr Asia Drug Syndicate who along Laurie Connell was the joint owner of a horse stud in Middle Swan. The other was race horse trainer, George Way who was well known for the manner in which he had administered “elephant juice” (etorphine) to a racehorse he trained for Laurie Connell which resulted in his suspension from attending any race meeting for a period of twenty years. He was also strongly suspected of administering “elephant Juice” to Laurie Connell’s horse, Rocket Racer that won the 1987 Perth Cup.

I was fully aware that in the early 1980s, an investigation by BCI was conducted into (name deleted) as he was known to be laundering about $50,000 a week by wagering that money on fixed Perth race meetings on behalf of the Mr Asia Drug Syndicate. During that investigation, his telephone conversations and that of other WA criminals who were suspected of being involved with the Mr Asia Drug Syndicate were intercepted. In one of those conversations between the criminals, it revealed that inspector Pace was present at Bob Meyers racing stables when they were dividing up stolen jewellery.

In another telephone intercepted conversation between the member of the Mr Asia Drug Syndicate and George Way, he said to Way;

“Give that cunt (name of police officer deleted) a grand. That should shut him up”.

That same senior police officer was also a co-director with Laurie Connell and Superintendent Bernie Johnson in the private import/export company and he warned George Way that he was about to be raided by the CIB Break Squad as they knew he was in possession of a large quantity of stolen jewellery. He also advised Way that his telephone was bugged which resulted in Way fleeing Perth in the back of a horse float. Once he reached the South Australia border, he rang his own phone number and laughed and said;

“I know you cops have my phone bugged”

After the constable from BCI, had shown me the intelligence reports on Bob Meyers, I asked him he had any further intelligence on the member of the Mr Asia Drug Syndicate. He led me to another room and obtained a large cardboard box which contained all the transcribed intercepts of telephone conversations which had been obtained during the Mr Asia Drug Syndicate investigation.

He left me to examine those documents for about half hour and I selected a series of documents which he photocopied for me. Those documents clearly established the West Australian Police Force had conducted illegal telephone intercepts.

Later I was able to obtain further information regarding the manner in which the member of the Mr Asia Drug Syndicate had been able to move large quantities of heroin from the east coast of Australia and transport it to Perth without detection. He owned several large horse floats which he used to transport race horses from the east coast of Australia to Perth and heroin packaged in condoms would be secreted internally into the mares. Bob Meyers later purchased that business from him.

As I did not trust any members of the WA Drug Squad with that information, I arranged to meet two members of the Federal Drug Squad Intelligence Unit in the parking area of the Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club in Peppermint Grove. During my discussion with them, they told me they wished they had known that information when Bob Trimbole was running hot.

On or about the 29 March 1988, I received a telephone call from Mr Peter Ward who told me that brevet inspector Les Ayton, the OIC of the Casino Liaison Squad had contacted him and wanted to meet with him to discuss an investigation he was conducting into the Burswood Casino. Mr Ward asked me for my approval to allow him to inform inspector Ayton of the evidence that I had collated into the corrupt conduct of inspector Pace. He told me that he had previous spoken with inspector Ayton about police corruption and was informed that he was currently conducting a covert investigation into the corrupt activities of Superintendent Bernie Johnson. I gave him my approval as I knew that brevet inspector Ayton was a close friend of the Commissioner of Police and I considered that the Police Commissioner should know of the corrupt conduct of inspector Pace.

The following day, Mr Ward again contacted me and we arranged to have lunch together at the City Hotel where he advised me of his conversation with inspector Ayton.

He briefly explained inspector Ayton’s allegations regarding the Casino cost overruns which he said related to the sand pad of the Casino building being moved some distance from the original plans. He told me that he considered inspector Ayton’s allegations to be frivolous and when they completed discussing that issue, he took the opportunity to advise him of the evidence I had obtained regarding the corrupt association between inspector Pace and race horse trainer Bob Meyers.
Inspector Ayton stated that he was fully aware that inspector Pace was corrupt but that he was currently giving priority to investigating the corrupt activities of Superintendent Bernie Johnson who he considered to be far more serious than those of inspector Pace. He told Mr Ward that he had obtained video surveillance of Superintendent Bernie Johnson handing over police documents to Laurie Connell at the South Perth Yacht club jetty. He also told Mr Ward that he would contact me to obtain all the evidence which I had gleaned regarding the corrupt conduct of inspector Pace. I expected him to contact me but he failed to do so.
At about lunch time on the 31 March 1988, I received a telephone call from detective sergeant Rowe who told me that we could trust detective sergeant Jim Allan who was the OIC of the Midland CIB. Sergeant Allan had won the confidence of two of Bob Meyers’s baseball team and they were prepared to give evidence against the whole gang including detective inspector Colin Pace. They were also prepared to provide information regarding the murder of brothel madam, Shirley Finn.
One of the baseball bashers was due to meet with Bob Meyers and some of his criminal gang at a property in Middle Swan at about 3pm that day but was concerned for his safety as he suspected that Meyers may have found out that he had become a police informant. To monitor his safety, Sergeant Allan wanted to have him fitted-up with a listening device but that would require the authority of the Commissioner of Police and to obtain that authority, we would need to go through the chain of command. We certainly did not trust either the Chief Superintendent in charge of the CIB or the Assistant Commissioner of Police as we were fully aware of their close friendship with inspector Pace and that the three of them had recently been seen together in an intense discussion at the police cafeteria.

I suggested that we should go and see Mr Ward at the Police Minister’s Office and see if he would approach the Commissioner of Police on our behalf and obtain his direct approval.

​The following day, Friday April 8 1988, I attended at Metro Motors to return the spare key of the complainant’s motor vehicle to the saleswoman. I told her that the investigation into the extortion offence committed by Bob Meyers and the prostitute had been compromised and that detective inspector Pace had found out about our investigation and was trying to squash it.

She said;

“How did he find out?”

I said;

“It’s obvious it must have been some copper. We both know he has got (name deleted) working for him.”

She said;

“I don’t know how this Police Force operates. All I know is that (complainant) didn’t deserve this bashing.”

I said;

“I agree, and I am doing my best to catch the offenders, but it’s difficult when you have half the Police Force trying to protect the criminals. Are you prepared to give me a statement as to what (name deleted) said to you yesterday?”

She said;

“I don’t want to get involved in Police matters. All I know is that (complainant) didn’t deserve this.”

I said;

“Pacey may be getting his team together trying to stop this inquiry.

What he doesn’t know is that we are in the last quarter and our team is kicking with a five goal breeze.”

She said;

“I am going away for the weekend. I don’t want to get involved in Police matters. I will ring you on Monday and let you know if I will make a statement.”

I said;

“Okay then.”

The following morning, Saturday April 9 1988, I received a telephone call at home from detective Sergeant Rowe who wanted to speak with me but suspected that my home phone was bugged and asked me to come and see him. When I arrived at his home, he told me that detective superintendent (name deleted) was going to establish a Task Force to investigate all the baseball bashings organised by Bob Meyers and his corrupt association with inspector Pace. He said; “What has happened is that when Laurie Connell bought Meyer’s stables (Kiwi Lodge) he put (member of the Mr Asia Drug Syndicate) in them.


End of the Report

As I wanted to obtain a copy of the transcript of the my sworn testimony before the Royal Commission on the 11 June 2003, I forwarded an email to the Corruption and Crime Commission on 21 July 2015 requesting that they supply me with a copy of the transcript of my evidence. True to the words of the Acting Deputy Director of the Corruption and Crime Commission, Mr Tony Wood, they refused to respond to my request and after waiting some ten weeks, I made an official complaint to the Parliamentary Inspector regarding their refusal to reply to my request. As a witness who was called to give evidence before that Royal Commission, I was always entitled to a copy of that document and shortly after my complaint to the Parliamentary Inspector the CCC emailed me a copy of that transcript on the 8 October 2015. I did not get an apology for their arrogance and incompetence.
….………
In conclusion, I would strongly suggest that you don’t need to be a QC to determine that there is a two tiered justice system in West Australia whereby there have been some senior police officers and some politicians who are untouchable and any allegations of corruption made against them have never been subject to any independent, ethical investigation. Conversely, those who are arbitrarily selected for investigation by the CCC are subjected to intense scrutiny where all covert surveillance and telephone tapping techniques are used. Should you be interested in examining my previous complaints to the CCC which they refused to investigate, I would be happy to forward them to you. Yours sincerely Frank Scott 7 November 2016

My opinion is that WA didn't have anywhere near the sufficient preparedness to deal with these crimes. While they did employ innovative software and investigative techniques and structures, the information overload and lack of evidence was immense.
I also believe that David Caporn single handedly destroyed any potential this investigation had.

Despite all of this, the fact remains that the WA Police inquiries into these crimes have been largely responsive to incoming information. Their use of academic profiling is minimal and noticeable patterns in local geography, criminal behaviour and local factors relevant to Claremont and it's surrounds have been largely unexplored. I think there is a real chance of solving these crimes by opening up new avenues , especially seeing as the the abductions themselves were concentrated so much in the one area.

"Police accused Steven Ross of abducting Sarah Spiers from Claremont in 1996, but he says his taxi-driving records prove he did not."
Interesting letter by Steve Ross.
A few things I didn't know
1. The "blonde haired guy" didn't know SS and wanted to get out with the drunk woman dropped in Dalkeith.
2. Macro approached him 12 month ago asking about the blonde haired guy.

Still DNA testing people only last year. I don't have a source. Just people I know were being DNA tested that were in the area on the nights.

I don't know about anyone else but I can't find any similar murders anywhere else in the world let alone interstate.
My best guess is the CSK stopped and is still residing in Perth, most likely within a 7km radius of Claremont.
I'm quite confident that Macro would have checked every male that left Perth within a year of the last murder, and also checked people who were incarcerated during that period.

Are you sure it was the "blonde haired guy" in the taxi with SS? This is the same "blonde haired guy" that was talking to JR? If so, that makes for some interesting points.
Personally, I think people need to do some more research on the "blonde haired guy".

I suggested MM could be blonde, and was immediately ridiculed an idiot
Disguise should not be discounted in serial offences. It is very very common.
In saying that, Jane Rimmer was talking to a blonder hair guy. 1% of the global population as discussed in the suitcase murder of Khandles thread.
You can see why police are reluctant to release an identikit
I have a source so I can say it. Police are DNA testing everyone in the room.

Perhaps you are imagining something?
1. There were reports of a "blonde haired guy" in early articles supplied by papertrail. I have no idea if the guy SR is referring to is the same guy. I'm sceptical there was a blonde haired guy in SR's cab the previous night at all.
2. The only guy I have seen talking to JR is "brown haired guy". Also known as MM.

Finally--an explanation that makes sense.
It sounds like this former POI has a lot to say, but no platform.
This totally clears Steve Ross in my mind. And he was publicly cleared some time back. Mr. Ross, if you read on WS please consider becoming a verified insider and joining the thread.

WHere does it say Mystery Man? I wouldn't call MM hair a bob. Ill find the other statement about JR
There is more than one camera. More that people havent seen. Dont presume it is the camera outside the pub, especially the mention in the article below. It does not state outside video or mystery man. Remember, it has stated in the image source, the cops are DNA testing people 'inside' the pub.
Thanks
This article says blonde bobbed hair man approached this woman on night before CG disappeared offering a lift.
The woman said he looked like a man on security footage with blonde hair seen talking to JR.
.................................................. ............................
Who is man with blonde hair talking to JR? Is that why security footage was "enhanced" ?
If he really is the son of a policeman.... then WTF.
He is obviously not out with friends (otherwise he would be driving them home, and would have been identified), and he is obviously not drinking because he's driving. What exactly was he doing ??

Im not saying MM is female. Im not discounting MM as being female.
The shirt is a couple of sizes too big. The collar is flared to hide the persons build, and make them look bigger. The person has no shoulders, no jaw line, the body is slender. We deliberately dont get to see the persons face. The persons hair is incredibly thick. There is a chance the person is pretending to be male.
Its like the walking coat hanger. The elbows in the shirt appear to hang past the elbows on the person. A heroin addict even. The person is hiding their build, hiding their identity.
Look at the incredible difference in stature of the bloke behind this person.
Does the shirt even belong to this person? First day of a job? uniform?

I grew up in a small country town in New Zealand in the mid 1990's, the the over sized shirt with a flared collar looks exactly like how skinny farm boys would dress up for a night out, it might be your opinion that these are signs of trying to conceal ones body type, I simply see it as a style that MM thought looked cool. I'd bet not just my right nut, but the left nut too that MM is not a female. That footage was looked at by hundreds if not thousands of police & experts as well as being enhanced by NASA, Not once has there been any public statement or acknowledgement that MM could in fact be female, only that they would like to identify mystery MAN.

The shirt is so big, if they did up the collar the shirt would look silly. Look at the bloke 10 feet behind the MM. You got skinny right. Hes a scarecrow
Are you saying he is a skinny New Zealand trendy farm boy? How old do you think Skinny farm boy is?   Jane Rimmer is 23
Maybe that is the problem, looking for a man, when they should be looking for a woman. They have DNA. They should have a profile.
Im saying, dont jump to conclusion it is a boy, it may well be a girl pretending to be a skinny NZ skinny farm boy.

NASA hasn't found the killer either. Just looking at the hair over the ears, it looks like the biggest cow lick forehead you ever seen.

Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon

Several pieces of evidence against Bradley Edwards will not be able to be used in his murder trial.

Sarah Spiers, Ciara Glennon and Jane Rimmer were last seen alive in Claremont

Claremont killings case prosecutor chided
Rebecca Le May - AUGUST 9 2019

https://www.canberratimes.com.au/story/6320100/claremont-killings-case-prosecutor-chided/?cs=14231

A Supreme Court of WA judge has admonished prosecutors for failing to tell him about potential new evidence in the Claremont serial killings case, despite previously drawing "a line in the sand".
Justice Stephen Hall's comments on Friday came as details of objections by Bradley Robert Edwards' defence lawyers to evidence gathered by the prosecution were revealed.
The accused murderer and rapist's trial was put off in June - the month before it was due to start - because prosecutors had not yet provided full disclosure.
Justice Hall took the unusual step of giving them a July 30 deadline, after which they must apply to have fresh evidence included.
On Friday, prosecutor Carmel Barbagallo flagged future applications, but Justice Hall warned that if she took too long, she risked prejudicing her chance of having them granted.
He urged her to make them "forthwith".
Regarding the defence objections, one of two key areas of contention relates to "emotional turmoil or upset" in Edwards' personal life that the prosecution says correlates to the chronology of offences.
Another concerns evidence about Hollywood Hospital where, while working for Telstra in 1990, he attacked a social worker from behind, covered her mouth and attempted to drag her into nearby toilets.
Edwards was sentenced to two years' probation for common assault over that attack and there is contention surrounding information in pre-sentence reports.
These matters are yet to be resolved, so a two-day hearing was tentatively scheduled for October 21 and 22 - less than four weeks before the trial is set to start.
Justice Hall, who will hear the nine-month trial without a jury, initially planned to push through most of the Christmas break but now concedes that could prove difficult, especially for witnesses.
So the trial will break for a fortnight, resuming on January 6, but legal argument may be heard during that period.
Also on Friday, Justice Hall published rulings on 14 objections, 13 of which relate to the statements of various prosecution witnesses.
Some were deemed irrelevant, inadmissible or of little probative value, while others need more consideration.
Notably, Justice Hall ruled evidence from a former colleague of Edwards, who said he knew the accused had worked at Claremont Superdome in the 1990s, "could not be said to be irrelevant".
The court previously heard this was significant because, during an interview with police, Edwards denied he had anything to do with the Claremont area until after 2009.
Edwards, 50, is charged with murdering Ciara Glennon, 27, Jane Rimmer, 23, and 18-year-old Sarah Spiers, who were all last seen in Claremont between 1996 and 1997.
The bodies of Ms Glennon and Ms Rimmer were found in bushland at opposite ends of Perth but Ms Spiers has never been found.
Edwards is also accused of attacking an 18-year-old woman at her Huntingdale home in 1988 and twice raping a 17-year-old girl at Karrakatta cemetery in 1995.

Edwards appeared in court via videolink from the maximum-security Casuarina Prison but must appear at the hearing in October in person.
Australian Associated Press


Then if Bradley Robert Edwards was murdered in Prison waiting for his trial .. regardless of whether the Prison Authorities make his murder look like a suicide, or do not even bother covering up that an another prisoner murdered Bradley Robert Edwards in prison waiting for his trial .... these above photos .... along with all the other media hype by all the main strean media....
that the police and the Director of Public Prosecutions for Western Australia are convinced that they have the evidence that will prove in a fair open trial beyond any reasonable doubt that Bradley Robert Edwards is solely responcible for the abductions and murders of Sarah Spiers, Jame Rimmer and Ciara Glennon ....
will have the general public brainwashed that Bradley Robert Edwards is solely responcible for the abductions and murders of Sarah Spiers, Jame Rimmer and Ciara Glennon ....
and thus the general public will not be concerned at all that Bradley Robert Edwards was murdered in prison .... even before he had a chance to prove his innocense in a fair open trial.
It is a well known principle of English Law, which Western Australian Law is based on .... that any accused is entitled to be treated as innocent of the crime or crimes he or she is accused of prior to be being found guilty at in a fair open trial .... 
It is natural that the general public and those involved in publishing this website, have a right to want and demand that these horriffic crimes are solved, and the person or people responciple for such horiffic crimes committed over 20 years ago in Perth, Western Australia are brought to justice  and are punished appropriately if found guilty at a fair open trial .... however, it seems that the general opinion of the general public and the families of those abducted and murdered .... that the Western Australian Police and the Director of Public Prosecutions for Western Australia have the right man..  just becaue of  the fact that they have finally arrested someone for the abductions and murders of Sarah Spiers, Jame Rimmer and Ciara Glennon .... after over 20 years of spending over $20 million plus dollars on the investigation and are now spending in excess of $100 million dollars on the trial of Bradley Robert Edwards, to do everything possible to convince Justice Stephen Hall to find Bradley Robert Edwards guilty of being the sole person responsible for the abductions and murders of Sarah Spiers, Jame Rimmer and Ciara Glennon ....

The sad thing in all this is that the Western Australian Police and the Director of Public Prosecutions for Western Australia,  and effectively the Western Australian Government  ... and those who are actually involved in the arrest and prosecution of  Bradley Robert Edwards guilty as allegedly being the sole person responsible for the abductions and murders of Sarah Spiers, Jame Rimmer and Ciara Glennon .... have gone too far to turn back ... and thus the Western Australian Police and the Director of Public Prosecutions for Western Australia,  and effectively the Western Australian Government,  and those who are actually involved in the arrest and prosecution of  Bradley Robert Edwards, as allegedly being the sole person responsible for the abductions and murders of Sarah Spiers, Jame Rimmer and Ciara Glennon ... 

will now use their unlimited power and unlimited budget paid for by the Western Australia people .. to try and convince Justice Stephen Hall that  Bradley Robert Edwards should be found guilty of being the sole person responsible for the abductions and murders of Sarah Spiers, Jame Rimmer and Ciara Glennon .... even if during the trial and during the continued investigations, evidence comes to light and/or is made available,  that will help point the blame on the abductions and murders of Sarah Spiers, Jame Rimmer and Ciara Glennon on others ... and/or help in various ways convince Justice Stephen Hall that he should bring in a not guilty verdicts on the abduction and murder charges laid against  Bradley Robert Edwards ... because  Justice Stephen Hall feels that the police and prosecution have not satisfied the criminal proof standard of "Beyond Reasonable Doubt".... as in the well known Simpson case .. he was found not guilty of the criminal charge of murdering his wife.... because the jury was not convinced that he was guilty "Beyond Reasonable Doubt" which is the high criminal standard of proof  .... however the Family of his wife sued Mr Simpson through the civil courts and won a civil case against Mr Simpson .. based on the lower civil standard of proof ... " On The Balance of Probabilities"..

What the Western Australia Police and the Director of Public Prosecutions for Western Australia, and in particular the main prosecutor handling the prosecution of  Bradley Robert Edwards.. being prosecutor Carmey Barbargello have to realise and remember ... is that it is their duty and sworn oath to at all times during the investigation, prosecution and trial of Bradley Robert Edwards for the abductions and murders of Sarah Spiers, Jame Rimmer and Ciara Glennon,  and the other charges that Bradley Robert Edwards
has been charged for ... that they have to seek and search for the truth and justice at all times... and if for any reason evidence comes to light that could lead to a not guilty verdicts of any of the charges laid against Bradley Robert Edwards .. or they beleive  at any stage during the investigation and prosecution of Bradley Robert Edwards for the various crimes he has been charged for ...... that there is not enough hard evidence to convince Justice Stephen Hall to satisfy the strict criminal evidence standard of "Beyond Reasonable Doubt" .. then it is their duty to seek out such evidence ... and if needed approach Justice Stephen Hall with the prosecution's new opinion that there there is either new evidence that is available they did not have before, that shows there are others that could be responcible for these horrendous crimes and that Bradley Robert Edwards could not be found guilty with such new evidence ... or that on reveiwing all the massive amount of evidence that has been collected in the over 20 year investigations into the abductions and murders of Sarah Spiers, Jame Rimmer and Ciara Glennon .... that the prosecution now beleive that it is not likely that a fair minded unbiased properly instructed by a trial justice ..... would find Bradley Robert Edwards guilty for the abductions and murders of Sarah Spiers, Jame Rimmer and Ciara Glennon  ... 
 .... it may well be the case that the Western Australian Police and  the Director of Public Prosecutions for Western Australia, and in particular the main prosecutor handling the prosecution of  Bradley Robert Edwards.. being prosecutor Carmey Barbargello have evidence against Bradley Robert Edwards that proves "Beyond Reasonable Doubt" ..that Bradley Robert Edwards
is guilty of sexual deviate and/or socially un acceptable sexual behaviour and/or less serious sexual offences, other than murder .... however ... as Paul Yovich, the barrister representing Bradley Robet Edwards has already said on the court ... this does not necessecarily prove "Beyond Reasonable Doubt" that  Bradley Robert Edwards  is guilty for the abductions and murders of Sarah Spiers, Jame Rimmer and Ciara Glennon.

The AWN News Group have evidence on file that well known high profile publicly respected merchant bankers,  and business people, that operate from flash offices in St Georges Terrace, Perth, Western Australia .... have secret rooms in their luxury homes in Dalkeith, Nedlands, Peppermint Grove, Cottesloe and Mosman Park Homes .. that have whips, chains, and special chairs, and various other B and D equipment .. to satify their special sexual needs and desires  ... and hire women at huge cost ....  to come over to their homes when their wives are not at home to help the use such whips, chains, and special chairs, and various other B and D equipment ... to satisfy their special sexual needs and desires ... and have special parties involving such 

 ... such as their wives being at Rottnest Island for the weekend with their children or other social friends ....  are they all possible suspects of being the Claremont Serial Killer just because of having and using such whips, chains, and special chairs, and various other B and D equipment .. and hire woman to come over to their homes to help them use such equipment ..... whips, chains, and special chairs, and various other B and D equipment .. to satisfy their special sexual needs and desires ...  where girls and women are either paid or encouraged in some way or another to come to a party at one of these luxury homes where all forms or drugs, sex and rock and roll take place at wild parties .... with people who attended these wild parties, including senior politicians, well respected business and finance people and including senior and lower level police and polticiians ....
It is noted that the well known God Father of Australia Abe Safron ... known publicly as Mr Sin ...... is known to have had a motel/hotel in Sydney, where he invited senior police and politicians, judges, magistrates and other people in powerful positions.. to attend and partake in all forms or drugs, sex and rock and roll and wild parties at Abe Safron's Sydney Motel ... unknown to them at the time... all their actions and behaviour was secretly filmed .. so when Abe Safron needed to call in a favour from these judges, magistrates, senior police, politicians and other people in positions in society that could help Abe Safron with his business ventures .. some legal and some illegal ... those that Abe Safron approached for such favour would be shown the secret tapes he had made on them...partaking in all forms or drugs, sex and rock and roll taken place at wild parties​

​Prosecutor Carmel Barbagallo has to remember and realise that it is her duty and sworn oath to at all times during the investigation, prosecution and trial of Bradley Robert Edwards for the abductions and murders of Sarah Spiers, Jame Rimmer and Ciara Glennon  and the other charges that Bradley Robert Edwards has been charged for  ...... 
... that she has to seek and serach for the truth and justice at all times... not to seek and push for a murder guilty verdict just for the sake of being the winner and obtaining a successful prosecution to further her legal career and be a hero in the general public's eyes as being the prosecutor who was able to convict the man accused by the Western Australian Police as being the Claremont Serial Killer ...​

The please note that articles like this in the irish Examiner with head lines such as:
"Court hears Australian man who killed Irish woman 22 years ago was 'depraved individual'..."

will have the effect of convincing the general public that  Bradley Robert Edwards is guilty of being the sole Claremont Serial Killer, regardless of what evidence is finally produced at the trial of Bradley Robert Edwards.

What happened to Perth girl Julie Cutler? Was she the first victim of Perth's notorious Claremont serial killer?

It's been 30 years since year since Australian Julie Cutler vanished into thin air, seemingly without a trace. The only evidence police have is Julie's car that washed up on Cottesloe Beach found two days after her disappearance- it did not contain Julie Cutler's body. If you have ANY information at all, contact Crime Stoppers WA: https://www.crimestopperswa.com.au/ OR CALL: 1800 333 000. A $250,000 reward is on offer for information on Julie Cutler's disappearance.

Re: The prosecution criminal prosecution of Bradley Robert Edwards and protection of the life of Bradley Robert Edwards until his criminal trial, during his criminal trial and until any legal decision as to the outcome of the criminal trial of Bradley Robert Edwards is made by the Honourable Justice Hall
Dear Sirs,
We are writing to you because of our deep concern relating to a number of matters relating to the prosecution criminal prosecution of Bradley Robert Edwards and protection of the life of Bradley Robert Edwards until his criminal trial, during his criminal trial and until any legal decision as to the outcome of the criminal trial of Bradley Robert Edwards is made by the Honourable Justice Hall.
We think that you should be reading, researching and noting all the information on relating to what is publicly known as the Claremont Serial Abductions and Murders .. along with other unsolved attempted and successful sexual assaults, abductions and murders that taken place in Perth, Western Australia in the 1980's and 1990's .. on the following websites:

www.nyt.bz, www.awn.bz and www.inlnews.com

There are a number of people that are concerned of the physical safety of Bradley Robert Eedwars until all his criminal trials are completed and a legal decision as to the fate of Bradley Robert Edwards is made by the Supreme Court of Western Australia.
In particular you could start of with carefully reading the following weblink:


http://www.awn.bz/ClaremontSerialKillings9.htm 
Regardless of whether Bradley Robert Edwards is found guilty or innocent of the murders of their of the following females: Sarah Speirs, Jane Rimmer and/or Ciara Glennon, under Western Australian Law Bradley Robert Edwards has a moral and legal right to be kept physically safe and in good mental and physical health, as best as humanly possible, and has a right to be presumed innocent until the court has decided whether he should be found guilty after and open fair trial where all the relevant information and evidence in presented to the a fair minded jury or a judge or justice taking the place of a fair minded jury.

The prosecution's legal role and obligation to the court is at all times during their criminal investigation into the charges laid by the Western Australian Police Service against Bradley Robert Edwards, and also during the actual trial and prosecution, is to seek the truth and the full truth and nothing but the truth  ...even during the 9 plus months trial of Bradley Robert Edwards.
If new evidence and information comes to light or is offered to be brought to light at anytime prior to the conclusion of the trial of Bradley Robert Edwards, that could help Bradley Robert Edwards be found not guilty of any of the criminal charges on which he is charged ... then the prosecution .. and  it goes without even having to it...the defence  team representing Bradley Robert Edwards .... have a moral and legal obligation to encourage such information and evidence to be presented tot he court ..... and not to do anything to ignore or hide such information and evidence.
The AWN/INLNews Media Group and Privately Funded Investigations Teams, that we represent, who have been investigating all the attempted and successful sexual assaults, abductions and murders in Western Australian that have happened in the 1970's 1980's, 1990's  when the abductions and murders happened that are now publicly known and described as the Claremont Serial Abductions and Murders ..and beyond... have a number of times from the 1990's onwards and more  and in particular over the last couple of years..... ... written to the Western Australian Police Service, the Western Australian Government, the various Attorney Generals, the various Ministers of Police for Western Australia, the various Director of Prosecutions for Western Australia, the various Commissioners of Police for Western Australia and the various heads of the Macro Task Force, which is the Police Section that was created to oversea the police investigation of the Claremont Serial Abductions and Murders.... offering information and evidence that is related in various way to the Claremont Serial Abductions and Murders... and other possible related sexual assaults, abductions and murders that happened in Perth and Western Australia in the 1970's, 1980's and 1990's and beyond.
At all times all such information and evidence offered relating to the Claremont Serial Abductions and Murders and other sexual assaults, abductions. attempted abductions, and murders in Perth and Western Australia during the 1970's, 1980's and 1990's have been ignored and not wanted to be received by:
The Western Australian Police Service
The Western Australian Government
The Various Attorney Generals for Western Australia
The Various Minister of Police for Western Australia
The various Director of Public Prosecutions for Western Australia.

The AWN/INLNews Media Group and Privately funded Investigations Teams, that we represent, who have been investigating all the attempted and successful sexual assaults, abductions and murders in Western Australian that have happened in the 1970's 1980's, 1990's, are under the strong belief that part of the reasons such information and evidence being ignored. and not wanted to be heard. is that such information and evidence will have an extremely negative effect on powerful and well connected individual people, networks and organisations, and at the same time bring the Western Australian Police, the Director of Public Prosecutions for Western Australia and the Western Australian Government into world wide disrepute.
It can not be denied that the Western Australian Police and the Director of Public Prosecutions for Western Australia  are already in serious international disrepute in relation to various serious criminal prosecutions such as:
(a) the prosecution of ex-Crown law Prosecutor Lloyd Rayney for the alleged murder of his wife, who has now been found not guilty and has successfully sued the Western Australian Government for damages ...
(b) the prosecution of Andrew Mallard for the alleged murder of Pamela Lawrence ... Andrew Mallard has had his murder conviction overturned by the High Court of Australia after spending around 12 years of his life wrongfully in prison and for all those years being classed by society in general as a convicted murderer ... who has now bee paid around $3,500,000 dollars in a type of compensation payment for hsi wrongful murder conviction and  for the 12 years of his life spent wrongfully in prison for a murder that has now be accepted by the authorities that he did not commit.... in the Andrew Mallard Wrongful Murder Conviction .. it was not just a matter of a mistake in law or a mistake in fact ..etc .. in reality is was the fact that it seems clear that their was some sort of what seems to have been some sort of quite deliberate criminal conspiracy to pervert the  course of justice between the Western Australian Police Service and the Police Officers that were in charge of the arrest of Andrew Mallard for the murder of Pamela Lawrence such as former Western Australian Assistant Police Commissioner David John Caporn ( who had to very quickly resign from the Western Australian Police Service after the High Court Ruling setting aside the Murder conviction against Andrew Mallard) and other police office working with him on the Andrew Mallard investigation and arrest ....... and the Director of Public Prosecutions for Western Australia and one of its head prosecutors at the time ...Kenneth Bates ( who had to very quickly resign from the Western Australian Police Service after the High Court Ruling setting aside the Murder conviction against Andrew Mallard) .... 
(c) there are many other wrongful arrests and prosecutions that have taken place in Western Australia over the last 40 odd years... 
and many other cases were murder charges were not involved such as the wrongful convictions of Ray, Peter and Brian Mickelberg . over what is publicly well known as the Perth Mint Swindle is the popular name for the robbery of 49 gold bars weighing 68 kg ..
The Perth Mint Swindle is the popular name for the robbery of 49 gold bars weighing 68 kg from the Perth Mint in Western Australia on 22 June, 1982. The bullion was valued at A$653,000 at that time. As of 8 January 2018, the value of the 68 kilograms of gold would approach AUD $3.7  
 Liam Bartlett: Why Ray Mickelberg is still paying the price for being a victim of crime
LIAM BARTLETTPerthNowFebruary 27, 2016
https://www.perthnow.com.au/news/wa/liam-bartlett-why-ray-mickelberg-is-still-paying-the-price-for-being-a-victim-of-crime-ng-de5bea779503b9c574a9ad6e41a3d685 
 WHEN the state’s first law officer decides tacitly to approve the recovery of legal aid debt from a victim of crime, it’s more than a low act.
The action, or lack of it from Attorney-General Michael Mischin, sends a strong signal of an administration arrogantly out of touch and so desperate for funds that they’re happy to declare open season on unconscionable conduct.
If you think that’s harsh, just ask Ray Mickelberg. The former SAS trooper spent 8½ years incarcerated, mostly in the hellish confines of Fremantle prison, for something he didn’t do. Framed by corrupt cops for the 1982 theft of 68kg of gold bars from the Perth Mint, he and younger brothers Peter and Brian were wrongfully convicted in a saga that shamed the justice system and embarrassed authorities.
Tragically, Brian was acquitted after nine months, only to die in a light plane crash a short time later. Peter went on to serve six years and while that was bad enough, this immoral grab for cash is only stalking Ray because he’s the one with a signature on the title deeds of a home.
That asset — heavily mortgaged — is now under threat thanks to a decision by the Legal Aid Commission to sue for $145,353.41 in unpaid bills dating back to 1990.
Exactly where the LAC found these ancient invoices is unclear but it’s hard to believe it’s accounting systems are so bad that an amount so big was missed when it received a settlement eight years ago.
In 2008, then Attorney-General Jim McGinty announced an ex-gratia payment to Ray and Peter of $500,000 each, as recognition for the injustice perpetrated by the State’s police officers.
Make no mistake, for what they were put through, half a million was not much. Compared, for example to the $3.25 million paid to Andrew Mallard for wrongful conviction, Ray Mickelberg should have received in excess of $2 million on a quid pro rata basis for time served.
However, in formulating the Mickelberg payment, McGinty also factored in a total of $658,672 in legal assistance for the brothers.
That money was paid as a “special supplement” directly to the LAC from the state government. As McGinty said this week: “We took into account the amount of money they had already received by way of legal aid to enable them to clear their names”.
So, in effect, Ray and Peter were paid less by way of compensation for pain and suffering because the state was paying itself back for money spent getting them out of a position the state had put them in originally.
If it didn’t involve genuinely life-changing turmoil and anguish, it would be a black comedy.
For all the inequities, though, the Mickelbergs are not crying foul. They agreed to the ex-gratia amount on the understanding it was a full settlement. Again, McGinty confirmed that interpretation, insisting: “The state should acknowledge that legal aid funding was part of the consideration of (the) ultimate settlement”.
Now, in the past an old fashioned “settlement” with the Crown meant just that; a final, binding deed of arrangement. But for the LAC, it clearly has no legal or moral standing whatsoever. This columnist put several questions to Legal Aid director George Turnbull asking how and why this bill was dusted off and pulled from the bottom drawer but the LAC simply refuse to acknowledge them.
For his part, Mr Mischin tries to distance himself by involing the LAC’s position as an independent statutory authority. But he also admits he knew about the debt recovery in advance, saying: “I was informed that they were planning to do it.”
Why a fully independent agency would bother to include the A-G in the planning of such an action remains a mystery but the fact that he stood on the sidelines is reprehensible.
Mr Mischin told Nine News that: “I do not propose to interfere and I haven’t been asked to interfere”, which is not quite accurate as Ray Mickelberg wrote to him almost 10 months ago, begging for interference. A reply letter from Mischin’s office dated July 20, 2015, confirms his decision to do nothing.
Significantly, the case is now being run on behalf of the LAC by the State Solicitor’s Office, which comes under the direct purview of the Attorney-General. Weasel words aside, the fact is the political responsibility in this immoral action rests with Michael Mischin. If he can’t see that, the Premier needs to step in. It cannot be that a government settlement with a victim of crime means nothing.
If the LAC is so starved of funds, it should actively seek payment from the corrupt police or their estates because without them fabricating evidence, perverting the course of justice and lying on oath in multiple appeals, Ray and Peter would not have needed any legal aid for any court action.
Now they are singled out in an act that reeks of faceless revenge and bad grace.
In all other high-profile cases in WA involving a demonstrable miscarriage of justice, no other victim has been asked to repay the LAC. Ex-gratia payments to John Button, Darryl Beamish and Andrew Mallard have not been cannibalised by such an act of bastardry but for Ray Mickelberg, the principle is not the same.
When he left prison 25 years ago with $70 to his name, the road to redemption seemed implausible but his honour was restored, ironically through the confessions of a crooked cop. The state owes it to him to leave it intact.

The wrongful murder convictions of Mr Beamish, John Button and Andrew Mallard left a stain on the WA legal system after serious miscarriages of justice were exposed in all three cases.  
Fifty years on, Darryl Beamish wins $425,000 payment for wrongful murder conviction
https://www.watoday.com.au/national/western-australia/fifty-years-on-darryl-beamish-wins-425-000-payment-for-wrongful-murder-conviction-20110602-1fhl7.html 
The state government has announced it will make a $425,000 ex gratia payment to Darryl Beamish, who was wrongfully convicted and jailed for murder over the death of socialite Jillian Brewer in 1961.
Attorney-General Christian Porter expressed the government's "sincere regret" this morning while announcing the sum to be paid to Mr Beamish, who is deaf and mute, and spent 15 years in jail before winning a lengthy court battle to clear his name.
It was eventually accepted that Ms Brewer was murdered in her Cottesloe flat by notorious Perth serial killer Eric Edgar Cooke, the last man hanged in the state.
The payment has been hailed by Mr Beamish's family and WA journalist Estelle Blackburn, whose investigative work uncovered the story of Mr Beamish's injustice.
Mr Beamish is the last of a trio of high-profile accused criminals to win compensation for his ordeal.
The wrongful murder convictions of Mr Beamish, John Button and Andrew Mallard left a stain on the WA legal system after serious miscarriages of justice were exposed in all three cases.
Mr Mallard was awarded a record $3.25 million payment in 2009 after being wrongfully convicted of murdering Mosman Park jeweller Pamela Lawrence in 1995.
Mr Button was handed $460,000 compensation in 2003 after being cleared of the manslaughter of his girlfriend Rosemary Anderson, who it emerged was also a victim of Cooke's. He had served 10 years in prison.
Mr Button said the payment to Mr Beamish was not sufficient for ruining his life.
"It's not 15 years - to wrongfully convict someone you actually take away their whole life," he told ABC Radio.
"We the people of this state have murdered a person and to try and put a cost on that is very hard."
Mr Button questioned why he and Mr Beamish were not awarded payments similar to Mr Mallard, who served 12 years in jail.
It's not 15 years - to wrongfully convict someone you actually take away their whole life.
In 2005, the Court of Criminal Appeal unanimously set aside Mr Beamish's conviction on the basis that a "substantial miscarriage of justice" had occurred following an earlier decision not to grant Mr Beamish a retrial based on Cooke's confessions to the crime.

Cooke's gallows confession

Ms Brewer was 22 years old when she was slain in her Cottesloe flat by an intruder who brutalised her naked body with a tomahawk and a pair of dressmaking scissors.
At the time he was charged for the socialite's murder, Mr Beamish had been convicted of a sex offence and petty crime and was in prison awaiting sentence.
During his 1961 trial, Detective Owen Leitch, who later became WA police commissioner, said he had four confessions from the then 18-year-old. Two confessions were given through a sign language interpreter, one was a written statement and another was scrawled on the exercise yard at the Perth lock-up.
However, Mr Beamish insisted the confessions were untrue and obtained through intimidation and threats.
From 1959, Cooke committed eight violent murders and 14 attempted murders to which he confessed to and described in full detail when he was caught in 1963.
Even awaiting the gallows at Fremantle prison on October 26, 1964, Cooke voluntarily took the Bible from the prison chaplain and said: "I swear before Almighty God that I killed Anderson and Brewer." But his confessions to the murder of Ms Brewer and Ms Anderson were not accepted.
During Mr Beamish's most notable appeal in 1964, in which Cooke himself gave evidence, his account was dismissed by the court as "utterly worthless" and the work of a "palpable and unscrupulous liar".
The book that started it all
Ms Blackburn, whose book Broken Promises led to the successful appeals by both Mr Beamish and Mr Button, said she was thrilled with the state government's payment and apology, which culminated nearly two decades of work.
Ms Blackburn said Mr Beamish was a humble man who had to be coerced into applying for the ex-gratia payment.
"He suffered for 15 years in prison, and the state owed him something," she said.
"He's a humble man, and it's a very small payout, but he's not greedy. I'm absolutely delighted with this."
Ms Blackburn said Mr Beamish's family was extremely happy with the government's announcement this morning, and that the most important thing was that he wouldn't go down in history as a killer.
"He went through five appeals in the '60s; five times they said that he was guilty," she said.
"He's a deaf-mute, he could only talk to his family, it was virtually solitary confinement. This was a very humble request."
Ms Blackburn began writing her book in 1992, and following its publishing in 1998 she was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia and a Walkley Award.

Government expresses 'sincere regret'
Mr Porter said the government had considered legal advice when determining the payment and took into account the lack of a conclusive finding of significant misconduct by prosecutors or police in Mr Beamish's original conviction.
The government also considered Mr Beamish's previous offending behaviour; the length of time he spent in jail; and the 2005 Court of Appeal's acknowledgement of the strength of the case which had existed against Mr Beamish at the time of his original appeal and its finding that there was a significant prospect that a reasonable jury would have acquitted Mr Beamish if they had access to Edgar Cooke's subsequent confessions.
"Ex gratia payments are an act of grace, made under the prerogative of the Crown," Mr Porter said.
"They are not intended to fully compensate individuals for loss or detriment suffered. In this instance, the government is satisfied that sufficiently extraordinary circumstances exist to justify an ex gratia payment.
"Although the 2005 Court of Appeal noted the case against Mr Beamish had been 'very strong' in 1964, it is clear, based on the 2005 decision, his conviction had been upheld in circumstances where it was legally unsafe to do so.
"This payment is intended to express the state's sincere regret for what occurred and provide him with a measure of comfort and financial security in his retirement.
"Following the former government's ex gratia payment to John Button, this payment is another step towards closing a shocking and tragic chapter in Western Australia's criminal history."

".. I know a number of prisoners who have already had their fresh evidence applications to (previous) attorneys-general refused, but who will be looking forward to having their day in court. All are quite disturbing cases. One of the most disturbing is that of Arthur Greer. He was convicted 24 years ago of the murder of Sharon Mason, years after the event itself, on the most flimsy circumstantial evidence. No one saw him do it, there is no confessional evidence, no motive and no forensic evidence whatever linking him in any way to the death. How he was ever convicted in the first place is a mystery to everyone I have spoken to who has been involved in the case. I hold no brief for Greer, but like a number of senior Perth lawyers I have recently been privy to details of the fresh evidence in the case, which leaves me in no doubt that the original prosecution was misconceived and wrong. If the material I have seen is even partially correct, evidence the original jury never saw, Greer’s involvement in the murder at any level is all but impossible. He deserves to have this evidence considered by a court of three appeal judges, not a politician. The present Attorney-General, John Quigley, should be commended for his initiative in proposing the legislation that will make this possible...."...  Tom Percy is a Perth QC and can be heard on 6IX at 7.40am on Thursdays. @percyqc..
There are many other wrongful convictions and prosecutions in Western Australia over the last 40 to 50 years.... some have been rightfully dismissed by a magistrate at a preliminary hearing over the years... some where the Director of Public Prosecutions for Western Australia have refused to prosecute the charges laid by the Western Australian Police Service .... and many where the truth has still not come to full public light and have not been set aside by the courts when it is obvious on the evidence that they should.
Some of the information that was sent to the Western Australian Police Service, the Director of Public Prosections for Western Australia, the various attorney generals, ministers of police and commissioners of police for Western Australia that relates to the Claremont Serial Abductions and murders can be found in the series of books called..
"The Triumph of Truth (Who Is Watching The Watchers?)" published by the Weekend News Publishing Group, of which the first four volumes .. out of 13 volumes written can be found in the Western Australian State Library .. many volumes and research material for future volumes were illegally taken by Queensland Police including former Queensland Police Officers Gregory Storemont and Barry Zerna ... and others ... on around the 6th November, 2015 ... from 6 Earle Court, Tallai, Queensland .. the office of the Premier of Queensland has written to the INL News Group admitting that the Queensland Police removed many volumes of "The Triumph of Truth (Who Is Watching The watchers?)" published by the Weekend News Publishing Group, and research material  for future volumes and that the Queensland Police have a legal obligation to return all the volumes of "The Triumph of Truth (Who Is Watching The Watchers?)" ...and research material for future volumes were illegally taken by Queensland Police including former Queensland Police Officers Gregory Storemont and Barry Zerna ... and others ... on around the 6th November, 2015 ... from 6 Earle Court, Tallai, Queensland .. however ... all attempts by our clients to have these returned have failed and fell on death ears with the Queensland Police .. we understand one of the reasons why this is happened and still happening is that the various volumes of the books entitled "The Triumph of Truth (Who Is Watching The Watchers?)"  and research material for future volumes  were illegally taken by Queensland Police including former Queensland Police Officers Gregory Storemont and Barry Zerna ... and others ... on around the 6th November, 2015 ... from 6 Earle Court, Tallai, Queensland .. and the Queensland Police do not want return these volumes and research material to our media clients .. is because of the large amount of information setting out serious police, political and prosecution corruption, wrongful and unjust actions ...
The volumes of "The Triumph of Truth (Who Is Watching The Watchers?)" published by the Weekend News Publishing Group, of which the first four volumes .. out of 13 volumes written can be found in the Western Australian State Library and other  other volumes, including the original manuscripts for the first four volumes, and research material for future volumes  set out some important information directly related to the Claremont Serial Abductions and Murders  and other unsolved abductions and murders that appear to be related to what are publicly known as the Claremont Serial Abductions and Murders... that have happened in Perth Western Australian in the 1980's and 1990's... 
They also set out many wrongful arrests, prosecutions and convictions .. along with the reasons and evidence as the why such named arrests, prosecutions and convictions were wrongful and unjust .... the unfortunate thing is that some of these reasons include serious corruption of Western Australian Police, Crown Law Prosecutors, and  Director of Public Prosecution Prosecutors, Police Prosecutors, politicians, well connected and respected business people in Western Australia and lawyers, barristers, magistrates, judges and justices, District Court Sheriffs, Court Staff,  senior public trustee representatives .. etc. etc... thus no one on the system ... including the main stream Western Australia Media want to acknowledge that these series of books exist , which are around 500 pages in each volume .. and not not want to admit that the information and evidence in these series of books exist ... copies of some of the volumes will also be found on some Western Australian Supreme Court Files and the Federal Court of Australia files ... unless of course they have wrongly destroyed...

Re: The Western Australian Police Deliberate Cover Up and Incompetent Investigation into the Claremont Serial Abductions and Murders and other unsolved Abductions and Murders in Western Australia


Dear Karl

We are extremely dismayed and disturbed at the way you and the Western Australian Police Service have handled the investigation into Claremont Serial Abductions and Murders and other unsolved Abductions and Murders in Western Australia over the last 13 years while you have been the Commissioner of Police for Western Australia.
You are retiring as the Commissioner of Police for Western this month of August 2017 and are handing the baton to Chris Dawson, who has been appointed by the Western Australian Government as the next Commissioner of Police for Western Australia.
You are retiring and leaving the police investigation into the Claremont Serial Abductions and Murders and other unsolved Abductions and Murders in Western Australia, which has cost the Western Australian People millions of dollars and used thousands of hours of police man hours .... in a complete shambles and disgusting state for a number of reasons which we are happy to set out for you if you are interested.
It is not difficult for the average Western Australian and the average Australian to see that the December, 2016, timing of the arrest of Bradley Robert Edwards for being allegedly the lone sole Abductor and killer of Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon ... was done for political purposes to make the Colin Barnet Liberal State Government, yourself and the Western Australian Police Service look good in the eyes of the public of Western Australia, the eyes of the public of Australia and the eyes of the world.. with the fact that there was a Western Australian State Election due to be held in March, 2017 ... and you were due to retire in August, 2017 as one of the longest serving police Commissioners of Western Australia... being  prime motivating factors for the sudden arrest of Bradley Robert Edwards on the 22nd December, 2017 for allegedly being the sole lone person to abduct and murder both Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon in 1996 and 1997 in Western Australia...
The Colin Barnett Liberal State Government of Western Australia wanted to publicly announce that the Western Australian Police Service while the Colin Barnet Liberal State Government of Western Australia where in government, had finally appeared to have solved the Claremont Serial Abductions and Murders in Western Australia with the arrest of Bradley Robert Edwards for being allegedly the sole lone person to abduct and murder both Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon in Western Australia in 1996 and 1997..
Yourself as the retiring Commissioner of Police for Western Australia desperately wanted to be able to announce that under your watch as the Commissioner of Police for Western Australia, that the Western Australian Police Service arrested a man that WAPOL have strong compelling evidence that would prove in a court of law, beyond reasonable doubt, that Bradley Robert Edwards was the sole lone person to abduct and murder both Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon in Western Australia in 1996 and 1997 ... and this would leave the general public with the strong belief and impression that Bradley Robert Edwards was also responsible for the Abductions and Murders of other young girls and women and others ... including Sarah Spiers, Julie Cutler, Kerry Turner and others ... with not enough evidence to charge Bradley Robert Edwards ...  however, the police, and the director of Public Prosecutions have been able to arrest the man we think was responsible for these other unsolved Abductions and Murders for two Abductions and Murders and make sure this man is in prison and off the streets..
The timing of the around 10 months  delay of legally having to provide a copy of the police evidence to support the arrest of Bradley Robert Edwards to Bradley Robert Edwards and his Aboriginal Legal Aid Service paid solicitor and barrister Genevieve Cleary ... till after you retire in August, 2017 .. has obviously been well planned and deliberately done as a very clever legal tactic ... to make sure that even if the Western Australian Police Service and Amanda Forrester, the Director of Public Prosecutions for Western Australia, does not have enough solid evidence supporting the likelihood of Bradley Robert Edwards being convicted of the Abductions and Murders of Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon as the lone sole person responsible for the Abductions and Murders of Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon ... beyond reasonable doubt ... and either Bradley Robert Edwards Is released without having to go to trial, or is acquitted by the jury or a single Justice Trial without any jury ... leaving a large amount of rotten egg on the face of the Western Australian Police Service and Amanda Forrester the Director of Public Prosecutions for Western Australia ... and the Western Australian Government for putting an innocent man through the international public shame of being reported and accused by the Western Australian Police Service as being the Claremont Serial Abductor and killer of Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon by the Western Australian, Australian and International Media.
There is much evidence that the Western Australian Police Service and Amanda Forrester the Director of Public Prosecutions for Western Australia want to continue to ignore and much misleading information that the Western Australian Police Service have put out in the media about the background of the Abductions and Murders of Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon and Sarah Spiers . .
The whole History of the Western Australian Police Service investigation into what are Internationally known as the Claremont Serial Abductions and Murders .. is that the Western Australian Police Service have their man or men and thus the Western Australian Police Service do not need to look at or consider any other information that may indicate and or point to others involved in the Claremont Serial Abductions and Murders ...
The current man that WAPOL have Is Bradley Robert Edwards and WAPOL and Amanda Forrester the Director of Public Prosecutions, are not at all interested in any other information that could help show, point to or prove others are involved in the Claremont Serial Abductions and Murders ..
However, if Bradley Robert Edwards is finally cleared of the current criminal charges of allegedly being the sole lone person to abduct and murder both Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon ... then that will be a problem for the new Western Australian Police Commissioner Chris Dawson and Amanda Forrester the Director of Public Prosecutions for Western Australia and the Government of Western Australia to deal with ... not you Karl..
Karl, you may or may not be corrupt, and it may well be that you are just guilty of willfull blindness.. of what went on and what is going on ... as the directors of Enron were ... and Rupert and James Murdoch were in the News Of The World Phone Hacking and Email Hacking Scandal in the United Kingdom ... However, if you ignore this email and do not personally respond from your personal email, then the Western Australian Public and the rest of the world be start to believe that you were a corrupt Freemason Red Lodge Police Commissioner for Western Australia .. and not just incompetent ..

May 10th, 2017, -Written by Lisa Thomas The Advocate

https://www.communitynews.com.au/the-advocate/news/city-of-swan-pair-receive-honorary-freeman-of-the-city-awards/


THE City of Swan bestowed honorary Freeman of the City titles to two residents at its annual Mayoral Dinner last weekend.
Barbara Dundas and Ron Carey were given the prestigious title for their contributions to the community and City over four decades.
Swan Mayor Mick Wainwright said the council was delighted to be able to recognise the pair’s exceptional work.
He said as well as this award, Mrs Dundas was awarded City of Swan Citizen of the Year Award for 2017.

“Mrs Dundas has delivered outstanding service to the City of Swan and its residents through her contribution to heritage, community and culture for more than 40 year,” he said.
“Not only has she been a long serving and dedicated member of the Guildford Association, she has been instrumental in a number of significant projects including the Centenary of Artillery Commemorations, Talbot Hobbs Gate and Guildford Anzac’s walk trail.
“She has also been a member of many committees, including the Guildford Primary School, Stirling Square Working Group and various swan advisory groups.”
Mr Wainwright said Mr Carey had spent most of his life devoted to the community.
“Mr Carey has not only spent time on the City council advocating for the community, he has been looking after them in his capacity as a volunteer for almost 30 years,” he said.
“To name a few of his achievements, Mr Carey has been a volunteer driver with Swan Community Care Services for more than seven years and the president of their advisory committee for the past three years.

“He’s also a keen advocate for residential aged care within the City of Swan and successfully lobbies key stakeholders including local, State and Federal Government.”

Taxpayers to fork out $3m to defend Claremont serial killer accused Bradley Edwards
Tim ClarkeThe West Australian - Friday, 24 May 2019 7:00PM

https://thewest.com.au/news/claremont-serial-killings/taxpayers-to-fork-out-3m-to-defend-claremont-serial-killer-accused-bradley-edwards-ng-b881210265z

​​It is alleged Bradley Edwards murdered Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon.

About $2 million of public money has been set aside this year to pay for the defence of accused Claremont serial killer Bradley Edwards, it has been revealed.
Answering questions in Parliament this week, Legal Aid WA director Graham Hill said that $1.1 million had already been spent on defending accusations against Mr Edwards that he murdered Jane Rimmer, Sarah Spiers and Ciara Glennon.
With the trial due to start this year, Mr Hill said that almost double the amount had been put aside to continue to pay for Mr Edwards’ defence team, headed by barrister Paul Yovich.
“To date, we have spent $1.1 million on the case,” he said.
“As to what the cost will be in the future, that depends how long it goes and how intensive it all is.

“At the moment, the case is scheduled to start on July 22 and run for nine months but there are also some indications that it might be delayed. Our estimate is that it could be up to $2 million in the next year.”
Attorney-General John Quigley stressed in the estimates committee hearing that if Mr Edwards did not get proper legal representation, there was a chance of the case collapsing.
“We certainly do not want any murder case against Mr Edwards stayed or delayed,” he said.

Added to the list of the allegations is the abduction and murder of Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer (pictured)

Claremont serial killer trial judge strikes out evidence against Bradley Robert Edwards
By Joanna Menagh -  9 Aug 2019

The judge in the trial of the accused Claremont serial killer has struck out some of the prosecution evidence, including an allegation he would frequent an area "waiting for an opportunity to abduct, sexually assault and murder young women".

The rulings follow a two-day hearing in June at which the defence lawyers for 50-year-old Bradley Robert Edwards objected to some of the proposed evidence on the grounds it was not relevant or was inadmissible.
Mr Edwards is due to stand trial in November accused of the murders of Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon, who disappeared from the Claremont entertainment strip between January 1996 and March 1997.

The bodies of Ms Rimmer and Ms Glennon were found in bushland but Ms Spiers has never been found.
Mr Edwards is also accused of an attack on a woman in her home in 1988 and of abducting and sexually assaulting a teenage girl at Karrakatta cemetery in 1995.
One of the pieces of evidence that prosecutors wanted to call relating to the alleged Karrakatta cemetery offences was from a resident who claimed to have noticed a Telstra van parked in the area on at least four or five occasions, sometime in the mid 1990s.

Mr Edwards worked for Telstra at the time and prosecutors argued it was relevant because it showed that a person in a Telstra van was looking for opportunities to abduct, sexually assault and murder young women.
They also argued it was relevant to what is called the "Telstra living witness" evidence, which alleges a man in a Telstra van was driving around the Claremont area and offering lifts to young women.
But Justice Stephen Hall said the evidence was not relevant and "extremely tenuous".


Parts of police interview inadmissible

Another piece of potential evidence that was thrown out was part of Mr Edwards interview with police after his arrest in December 2016.
The detectives were questioning him about the DNA evidence which allegedly linked him to the offences.

Mr Edwards was seen saying to the detectives: "You're assuming I've done it."
The officer then responded: "I'm not assuming anything. Science says it's yours. The science speaks for itself."
Justice Hall said the last part of what the detective said "was clearly a comment" and "an assertion on the part of the police officer that the science was irrefutable".
"Whether or not that is so is a matter to be determined at the trial," he said. "The police officer's view of the evidence is not relevant."


Further objections possible

Justice Hall did allow statements from the families of Ms Spiers and Ms Glennon about the women's state of mind, which could rule out the idea of them disappearing voluntarily and make it more likely they were abducted by a stranger.
But he excluded evidence about Mr Edwards being seen near an underwear drawer at the age of 13 or 14 while at the home a family friend's house in the early 1980s.

Prosecutors said this was relevant because it showed he had an interest in women's underclothing and related to the Huntingdale alleged offences in 1988.
Justice Hall said it was "not evidence that could rationally affect the question of whether the accused is the offender in respect of any of the counts on the indictment".
He deferred rulings on a range of other objections relating to claims by prosecutors that Mr Edwards committed the alleged offences at times of emotional turmoil in his personal life and relationships.
That evidence would come from Mr Edwards's two former wives, one of whom started a relationship with another man while she was still married to Mr Edwards around the crucial time of mid-1995.


Edwards told of pregnancy before one death, court told

The court has heard the woman fell pregnant to the man and told Mr Edwards around April or May 1996.
Prosecutors said the evidence was relevant because it showed Mr Edwards was in a state of upset or emotional turmoil around the time of Ms Rimmer's death on June 9, 1996.

The evidence prosecutors wanted to call from Mr Edwards's second wife was about how their relationship developed and when he proposed to her.
The relationship started on April 1, 1997, about two weeks after Ms Glennon disappeared, and prosecutors said this showed he had the opportunity to be out late at night without being noticed.
It was alleged the start of the relationship also explained why there were no further offences after 1997.
Further argument will be heard on the application to include that evidence at a two-day hearing in October, which Justice Hall said was necessary because new material had come to light in written submissions to him.


The problem of 'new' evidence

Defence barrister Paul Yovich SC also raised concerns that he was still receiving "new" evidence in the case, which appeared to have arisen from "additional enquiries" that had been made.

Earlier this year Justice Hall had ruled new evidence should not be included without his permission, but he said that still appeared to be happening.
He told prosecutor Carmel Barbagallo SC that in future she needed to seek leave from him to include new material.

Also any applications or submissions in the case needed to be heard in open court because not only did justice need to be done, it needed to be seen to be done.

Justice Hall had previously indicated that the trial would proceed over the two-week Christmas period, but today he said he was now inclined not to hear evidence from witnesses at that time, although he did leave it open for there to be legal argument.

At the end of today's proceedings Mr Edwards, who appeared in court via video link from Casuarina Prison, was remanded in custody until a two-day hearing in October.



New DNA, fibre witnesses to be allowed in trial of Bradley Edwards for Claremont murders By Charlotte Hamlyn
8th November, 2019

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-11-08/bradley-edwards-claremont-serial-killer-trial-new-witnesses/11687038 
A host of additional witnesses including DNA and fibre experts will be allowed to appear at the trial of the man accused of the Claremont serial killings after a ruling by the trial judge. 


Bradley Robert Edwards is accused of the murders of Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon, who all vanished from the popular Claremont nightspot in the 1990s.
Last month, during a directions hearing in the Supreme Court, he made shock admissions to sexually motivated attacks on two other women in years before the Claremont disappearances — one in Huntingdale in 1988 and the abduction and rape of a teenager at Karrakatta Cemetery in 1995.

He pleaded guilty to five charges associated with those crimes, but denies the three murder charges against him.
Edwards has been in custody since his arrest in 2016.
His trial is set to begin on November 25 after months of delays for legal argument and for the prosecution to pursue new lines of investigation.

Glennon DNA and new witnesses allowed
The prosecution had made a series of last-minute applications to introduce new evidence, despite a previous ruling by Justice Stephen Hall that all material be disclosed by July 30 this year.
That evidence includes material relating to DNA found under Ms Glennon's fingernails.

The prosecution had made a series of last-minute applications to introduce new evidence, despite a previous ruling by Justice Stephen Hall that all material be disclosed by July 30 this year.

That evidence includes material relating to DNA found under Ms Glennon's fingernails.

The prosecution plans to call a forensic scientist from the United Kingdom who will consider whether that DNA could have been the result of passive social contact, or whether it got there by someone being scratched.  


The judge's ruling also flags that other forensic experts, called by the prosecution, will seek to challenge any suggestion from Edwards's lawyers that evidence was contaminated.
That argument is expected to make up a significant part of his defence.

A woman who claims to have found Jane Rimmer's watch close to where her body was discovered is also expected to take to the witness stand, along with a number of people who were in Claremont on the nights the women disappeared and can identify themselves in CCTV footage taken at the time.

A string of other new witnesses will also give evidence, including police, a security guard at Hollywood Hospital where Edwards was previously convicted of assaulting a social worker, and a mortuary manager.

A number of textile workers are expected to speak about the production of the fabric used to produce Telstra uniforms worn by Edwards at the time of the alleged murders.

Defence still has 'fair' chance to prepare: judge
"Although the number of witnesses referred to in the applications may appear to be large, when examined in detail the evidence encompassed by the applications is not substantial," Justice Hall said in his judgment.
"It may be inconvenient and frustrating for the defence to be receiving this material at this stage, however I am unable to accept that when taken together it prevents the defence from having a fair and reasonable opportunity to prepare for trial."
Edwards's defence team has until December 6 — after the trial has already begun — to file its own expert reports.
The ruling, just two weeks out from the start of the trial, did not touch on other evidence the prosecution has asked to present at the trial that it says connects periods of emotional turmoil in Edwards's life with his alleged crimes.
That ruling is expected at a later date.

Brother of accused Claremont serial killer  Bradley Robert Edwards 
breaks his silence about  the horrific abductions and murders

Aidan Wondracz- 2/03/2019

The brother of accused serial killer Bradley Robert Edwards insists his sibling is innocent. 
Mr Edwards - a 50-year-old suspected of being the Claremont serial killer - is preparing to fight a string of murder and rape charges dating back to the late 1980s to the mid 90s.
His younger brother in the meantime penned an email to The Weekend West to say the family of the accused was behind him every step of the way.
'My brother is innocent and ... this will be made evident as the case unfolds,' the email read.

The immediate family has visited Mr Edwards in prison and spoken to him at every opportunity.
Though, they have been given legal advice to stay away from his court appearances. 
Mr Edwards is accused of attacking an 18-year-old girl in her Huntingdale home in Perth in 1988 and allegedly raping a 17-year-old girl in Karrakatta Cemetery in 1995.
Police also allege he is responsible for the abduction and murder of Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon from the upmarket Claremont suburb between January 1996 and March 1997. 
Mr Edwards was arrested in December 2016 after forensic evidence allegedly linked him to the attacks.

Trial of Bradley Robert Edwards to cost the Western Australian Government in excess of $100 million dollars

 A pile of new information was just revealed about the Claremont serial killer case

The Claremont serial killings

Three young Perth women disappeared in the mid-1990s. Two decades later, a man faces court.
Justice Stephen Hall this week set a new trial date for Bradley Edwards of November 18.

RELATED STORY: Claremont serial killer trial delayed by four months after new clothing evidence emerges

RELATED STORY: How prosecutors will argue an awkward teen became the Claremont serial killer


It was listed as a mere directions hearing, a usually dry and often uninteresting discussion of the procedural matters of the case.
But this week's latest instalment on the Claremont serial killings trial proved anything but.
The one-and-a-half-hour hearing produced plenty of new nuggets of information about the case, some aspects of which date back more than 30 years.
Bradley Robert Edwards is facing three counts of wilful murder over the abduction and killing of three young women from the Claremont area in 1996 and 1997: Sarah Spiers, 18, Jane Rimmer, 23, and 27-year-old Ciara Glennon.
He's also charged over the sexual assaults of two other young women — one in Huntingdale in 1988 and the other, a 17-year-old, at Karrakatta cemetery near Claremont in 1995.
He has denied all charges against him.

Here's what we learned this week:

The trial date has been pushed back
The complexity of the case and the amount of evidence to be tendered always meant this would be a long trial.
May 2019 was the envisaged start date, but that was scrapped when defence counsel Paul Yovich successfully argued that it was not feasible and more time would be needed.
In December last year, Justice Stephen Hall ruled the trial would start on July 22 and be set down for nine months.
But this week he reluctantly pushed that date back to November 18, after it became clear the defence would not have enough time to examine new evidence introduced by the prosecution and prepare its case.
"The fact that the matter is adjourned is not one I am in any way pleased about," Justice Hall said during a heated exchange with state prosecutor Carmel Barbagallo.
The delay was "extremely unfortunate and regrettable" but necessary to ensure a fair trial, because of new evidence introduced by the prosecution.
Mr Edwards and his legal team needed to be fully informed of the evidence against him and needed time to adequately prepare his defence, the judge said.

There's still new evidence coming in
In fact, there's so much potential new evidence Justice Hall felt compelled to "draw a line in the sand" and not allow any more.


In April a directions hearing was told new clothing evidence had been obtained by police, which needed to be forensically tested and expert reports written.
But this week that was expanded to 39 separate items of outstanding disclosure, including a variety of forensic evidence such as DNA and fibres, plus taxi evidence and other general evidence.
"This could go on ad infinitum," Justice Hall said, ruling no new evidence be allowed after July 31 unless a special application was made.
State prosecutor Carmel Barbagallo said the order was "unusual" and she had never heard of one being made before.
Outside court, Criminal Lawyers Association president Tony Elliott concurred.
"I have to say I haven't heard of such a ruling in this jurisdiction," he told the ABC.
"But it's not unusual for judges to case manage cases.
"If I allow you to just keep piling up new evidence upon new evidence upon new evidence, then the accused can't get a fair trial.
"So it's not unusual for judges to make [a] ruling to ensure that the trial is fair, and for orders to be made that ensure the efficient running of trials."

A special evidence database is being set up
Also revealed in court this week was the establishment of a purpose-built electronic database to manage the sheer volume of evidence.
We already knew that more than 1.5 million pages of evidence has been collated relating to the case — the most expensive and longest-running in Australian criminal history.

There is so much of it, the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions has rented an entire floor of a building to house the prosecution team and the evidence.
Now it has been revealed an electronic database of all items of evidence has been created, which will be managed by the judge's associates so it is "seen to be independent of the parties," Justice Hall said.
Items will be cross-referenced and marked as exhibits when they are tendered in court, and backed up in such a way that they can be accessed even in the event of a systems failure.
The Telstra trousers may be crucial evidence
Among the new evidence being looked at is that relating to Telstra-issued work uniforms, specifically work pants, Ms Barbagallo told the court this week.

Mr Edwards was employed by the telecommunications company, previously known as Telecom, for his entire working life until his arrest in December 2016, and drove a work-issued vehicle at the time.
Ms Barbagallo told the court reports were being sought from two different manufacturers of the uniforms, which would be completed by the end of June.
Clothing fibres are just one part of the fibre evidence set to play a key part in the case.
It has also been flagged that fibres taken from a Telstra vehicle believed to have been driven by Mr Edwards in the 1990s will be central to the case. The vehicle was located by police in 2017.

Police linked the cases as far back as 2014
This week the court was told a report had been prepared in 2014 that linked fibres found on the bodies of Ms Glennon, Ms Rimmer and another woman.
Suburban newspaper the Post reported in 2015 a forensic link between Ms Glennon and the teenage victim in the Karrakatta rape case had been established, showing the same person was responsible for both attacks.
Police at the time refused to confirm or deny the report.
Ms Barbagallo told the court a "large proportion of the work" that had been done identifying fibres common to three of the victims had been completed in 2014, although Mr Edwards was not charged until December 2016.
She said the prosecution had yet to disclose the full extent of its fibre evidence to the defence.
Potential contamination of evidence will be mooted

One of the issues to be raised by the defence at trial is the potential contamination of DNA evidence taken from Ms Glennon's fingernails.
Ms Glennon's body was discovered in bushland at Eglinton, on Perth's northern outskirts, more than a fortnight after she disappeared.
Ms Barbagallo revealed in February DNA taken from Ms Glennon's body, including from under her fingernails, was consistent with Mr Edwards's DNA, and fibres located in her hair corresponded to fibres from the interior of the work car Mr Edwards was allocated at the time.

This week she told the court reports into the fibres found in Ms Glennon's hair were still being completed.
Also being completed were reports on DNA taken from those attending the bush scene where her body was found, as well as from those present at the post-mortem examination.
The case returns to court for a further directions hearing on June 24.

Now, prepare to put your true crime hats back on because we've got another journey to go on. The Claremont Serial Killings, hosted by The West Australian’s veteran crime and investigative reporter Gary Adshead, takes listeners into the shocking murders of three young women from the well-to-do Perth suburb of Claremont in 1996 and 1997.

RELATED: The Best True Crime Podcasts Of 2019

The first young woman, 18-year-old Sarah Spiers, disappeared after calling a taxi. Her body has never been found. A few months later 23-year-old Jane Rimmer disappeared, and her body is found in bushland weeks later. As police begin searching for a serial killer, 27-year-old Ciara Glennon is taken and killed with her body found dumped in bushland three weeks after her disappearance. 
As one of Australia's longest-running murder investigations, this podcast and cold case is especially timely having been reopened 23 years later, with accused murderer Bradley Edwards set to stand trial in July.
Edwards, who is accused of murdering Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon, is also facing charges of attacking an 18-year-old girl in her own home in 1988, and of abducting and sexually assaulting a 17-year-old girl at a Cemetery in 1995. The 50-year-old, a former Little Athletics volunteer, is denying any involvement in the cases.

Police also allege he is responsible for the abduction and murder of Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon from the upmarket Claremont suburb between January 1996 and March 1997. 
Mr Edwards was arrested in December 2016 after forensic evidence allegedly linked him to the attacks.

At a pre-trial directions hearing last week, it emerged the prosecution wanted to use the DNA or fingerprint traces to connect Mr Edwards with the series of crimes.
The Supreme Court heard while Mr Edwards denied all the allegations brought against him in a six-hour interview with police, he failed to explain certain facts.
That is, he was unable to explain why traces of his DNA was found on a Kimono linked to the Huntingdale attack and also on two of his alleged victims.
He also couldn't explain why his fingerprints were found on a door of another Huntingdale home following an attempted break-in, the court heard. 

Supreme Court Justice Stephen Hall noted the details brought to light during the pre-trial hearings were allegations - no evidence had been presented as of yet. 

Barrister Paul Yovich said important questions had to be answered in relation to the forensic evidence.
'The question ... is, in each case, is it the accused’s DNA ... and if so, how did it get there?' he told the court. 
'With count eight (Ms Glennon’s murder), are there other possibilities ... innocent contact, adventitious match or contamination in the collection or testing process?
'
Mr Edwards is due back in court on March 20.

 Defence barrister Paul Yovich SC has until December 6 to file expert reports on behalf of his client Bradley Edwards.

Perth reacts to shock Claremont serial killer arrest
If Donald Morey (the murderer who was last seen with Sarah Anne McMahon) was in contact with Sarah all these years -- can't he provide proof she is alive? Like .. an address? Phone number? Something? And why would she speak him and him alone and not her family - for 12 years? How is this Donald Morey aka Matusevich
guy NOT charged with something in this case? Thank goodness he's inside, anyhow, and not roaming free.
Seven News reporter Alison Fan looks back at the many clues that until Friday had seemed to lead nowhere in the Claremont serial killer search.

Taxi evidence is among the 39 items of outstanding disclosure the prosecution is yet to make.

A serious question that needs to be answered by Karl O'Callaghan, the Western Australian Commissioner of Police is:
Why did it take over a week for the Western Australian Police for come and collect a bag belonging to career criminal and convicted attempted murderer Donald Morey which the two owners of the house in Marangaroo, Mr and Mrs Gareth Allen who were the bosses of Donald Morey say contained a real of silver, gaffer tape, two knives and explicit pornographic material of what looked like dead women in sexual positions...
which is similar to the items that Western Australia Police officer  Con Bayers, who was the former head of the prostitution task-force said he found in Donald Morey's Commodore Holden car boot driving through Northbridge, Perth, Western Australia, that looked liked and unmarked police car 

Brother of accused Claremont serial killer Bradley Robert Edwards breaks his silence about the horrific abductions and murders  by Aidan Wondracz - 2/03/2019

The brother of accused serial killer Bradley Robert Edwards insists his sibling is innocent. 
Mr Edwards - a 50-year-old suspected of being the Claremont serial killer - is preparing to fight a string of murder and rape charges dating back to the late 1980s to the mid 90s.
His younger brother in the meantime penned an email to The Weekend West to say the family of the accused was behind him every step of the way. 'My brother is innocent and ... this will be made evident as the case unfolds,' the email read.
The immediate family has visited Mr Edwards in prison and spoken to him at every opportunity.
Though, they have been given legal advice to stay away from his court appearances.

Claremont killer trial: Accused makes admissions as prosecutors push for evidence to be heard
By Hannah Barry and Kate HedleyJune 24, 2019

https://www.watoday.com.au/national/western-australia/claremont-killer-trial-accused-makes-admissions-as-prosecutors-push-for-evidence-to-be-heard-20190624-p520n7.html

Accused Claremont serial killer Bradley Robert Edwards was in the dock again on Monday, with Supreme Court Justice Stephen Hall considering the admissibility of evidence being objected to by the alleged murderer's defence team.
A two-day hearing set down for this week will leave Justice Hall considering more than 20 objections raised by Mr Edwards' lawyer Paul Yovich in relation to the state's case against his client.
Among these is a witness account of an incident that happened when the accused killer was just 13.
The court was told Mr Edwards had been invited to a barbecue at the witness' home in 1982.

​The woman's statement said she had walked into her bedroom when she spotted Mr Edwards within reach of a set of drawers where her underwear was kept.
The witness said Mr Edwards told her he was "just looking around" and left the bedroom, but she claimed the next day she found a black, lacy bra hanging from the drawer, which was "extremely unusual".

​State prosecutor Carmel Barbagallo argued the evidence was relevant due to Mr Edward’s alleged fetish for women’s underclothes, and referenced incidents around the Huntingdale area where an offender – alleged to have been Mr Edwards – was seen in women’s clothing and underwear.
But Mr Yovich said there was no evidence Mr Edwards had expressed a sexual interest in the woman’s underwear at the time of the barbecue, and that due to his client's young age at the time, the witness testimony was irrelevant.

​This is despite previous evidence regarding a series of offences in 1988 known as the 'Huntingdale Prowler', which involved the theft of women’s clothing from clotheslines, some of which were later used in further offences.

In several other cases an intruder tried to break into homes, and was often seen leaving in "flowing women's undergarments".
The so-called prowler offences occurred within a 1-kilometre radius of Mr Edwards’ family home at the time, the court heard.
The state alleges in 1988, Mr Edwards was a "socially awkward" and "introverted" man who was not in any meaningful intimate relationship at the time of the offences.
Ms Barbagello will also argue for evidence she says points to Mr Edwards' state of mind around the time of the Claremont killings to be heard during trial.

​Justice Hall, who will hear all defence objections over the next two days, will reserve his decisions for a later date.
Also on Monday, Mr Yovich told the court he had a number of signed admissions by the accused.
What these admissions are, and what aspects of the case they relate to, will not be revealed until the trial starts in November, with Justice Hall signalling any intention to publicise them before then may mean they are taken out of context.
Mr Edwards has pleaded not guilty to the murders of Sarah Spiers, 18, Jane Rimmer, 23, and Ciara Glennon, 27, in 1996 and 1997.

All three disappeared from the Claremont nightclub district after a night out with friends.

The 50-year-old has also denied raping a 17-year-old girl in Karrakatta Cemetery in 1995 and attacking an 18-year-old woman in her Huntingdale home in 1988.
A directions hearing last month saw the case delayed almost five months over the state's decision to submit a pair of Telstra-issued work pants as evidence.
The pants may have been worn by Mr Edwards when he was working as a technician in the 1990s, but it is not clear what significance they may have to the State's case.
Following the evidence submissions, Justice Hall took the unusual step of disallowing any further submissions made after a July 30 deadline, unless he gives it explicit consent otherwise.
The nine-month trial is expected to begin November 18 this year.

The Claremont Serial Killings
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Claremont_serial_killings
As at 3rd November, 2019


The Claremont serial killings is the name given by the media to a case involving the disappearance of an Australian woman, aged 18, and the killings of two others, aged 23 and 27, in 1996-1997. After attending night spots in Claremont, a wealthy western suburb of Perth, Western Australia, all three women disappeared in similar circumstances leading police to suspect that an unidentified serial killer was the offender. The case, described as the state's biggest, longest running, and most expensive investigation, remains unsolved.[1][2] However, in 2016, a suspect, Bradley Robert Edwards, was arrested and is facing trial for the crimes in late 2019.[3]
The case began with the disappearance of Sarah Spiers (18) on 27 January 1996, after she left Club Bayview in the centre of Claremont at around 2:00 am.[4] At 2:06 am, Spiers called Swan Taxis from a public telephone booth.[1] Unusually, although she was living in South Perth with her older sister at the time, she had requested to be taken to the nearby suburb of Mosman Park.[1] She was then sighted waiting alone near the corner of Stirling Road and Stirling Highway by three eyewitnesses, who also mentioned seeing an unidentified car stopping where she was waiting[1] However, she was not at the site when the responding taxi arrived at 2:09 and, in the dark,[2] could have been missed by the driver. Her disappearance soon attracted massive publicity[5][6] and her fate remains unknown.[7][8]

On 9 June 1996, Jane Rimmer (23) from Shenton Park, also disappeared from the same part of Claremont.[9] Similar to Spiers, she had been out socialising with friends the night before. Rimmer's friends explained how they had moved from the Ocean Beach Hotel to the Continental Hotel and then Club Bayview.[1] Noting the long line at the club, her friends then caught a taxi home, but Rimmer opted to stay, and she was last seen on security footage waiting outside the Continental at 12:04 am.[1] Fifty-five days later, on Saturday, 3 August 1996, her naked body was found 40 km south in bush-land near Woolcoot Road, Wellard by a family picking wildflowers.[10][11]

Nine months later, on 14 March 1997, Ciara Glennon, a 27-year-old lawyer from Mosman Park, also disappeared from the Claremont area.[12][13] Like the others, she was with friends at the Continental and had decided to make her own way home. Three men at a bus stop saw Glennon walking south along Stirling Highway at 11:15 pm, and observed her interacting with an unidentified light coloured vehicle which had stopped by her.[1] Nineteen days later on 3 April, her semi-clothed body was found by a worker, 40 km north, near a track in scrub off Pipidinny Road in Eglinton.[14]


Investigation
Within 48 hours of the disappearance of Spiers, the case was taken over by the Major Crimes Squad.[1] After the disappearance of Rimmer, the WA Police setup a special task-force called Macro to investigate the two similar cases.[15][16] After the disappearance of Glennon, police confirmed that they were searching for a serial killer, and the WA government offered a $250,000 reward, the largest ever offered in the state at that time.[1]
Initial suspicion centred on the unidentified vehicles seen at two of the locations, and on an unidentified man seen in the video footage.[1] Suspicion then focused on Perth's taxi-drivers given that the women were last seen in circumstances where they may have used taxis. This included a taxi-driver who claimed to have transported Spiers the night before her disappearance.[17] A massive fingerprint and DNA-testing exercise was then carried out on the thousands of taxi drivers licensed in Western Australia.[18][19] Given evidence of a number of unlicenced operators, examining standards for eligibility were raised, and 78 drivers with significant criminal history were de-licensed.[2][20] Stricter standards were also applied to verifying that decommissioned taxis were stripped of insignia and equipment.[1] In December 2015, investigators finally revealed that fibres taken from Rimmer were identified as coming from a VS Series 1 Holden Commodore.[2]
Macro attracted both praise and criticism for their handling of the case.[2] At its peak, it had over 100 members across 10 teams. To avoid leaks, strict confidentiality protocols were implemented, and details of the nature of the deaths and injuries were suppressed.[1] One of the tactics used by Macro was the controversial distribution of questionnaires to 110 "persons of interest", including various confrontational enquiries such as "Are you the killer?"[2] Another was its reliance on international experts and use of an imported lie detector machine.[2] Further, one of its officers accepted an offer by David Birnie to assist the investigation.[2][21] Criticism was also laid on its overly narrow focus on the initial prime suspect despite the lack of direct evidence (as occurred in the cases of Andrew Mallard and Lloyd Rayney).[22] Over its lifetime, Macro was subject to 11 police reviews, including one in August 2004 led by Paul Schramm, the officer who led the Snowtown investigation.[2] It was finally wound down in September 2005 and the investigation moved to the Special Crimes Squad.[2]

Suspects
As with similar cases, experts suggested that the suspect was probably a single white male, aged 25–35, who had a residence in the area, who appeared trustworthy, was organised, social, and probably well educated.[2] Local sex workers were also questioned for signs of unusual behaviour in clients.
In April 1998, a public servant from Cottesloe, Lance Williams (41), was identified by police as the prime suspect, after his behaviour attracted their attention (i.e., driving around after midnight and circling the Claremont area up to 30 times[23]) during a decoy operation.[24][22] Subjected to a high level of surveillance and police pressure over several years, he continued to maintain his innocence. After interviewing him six times at length, police declared in late 2008 that he was "no longer a person of interest"[25] and he died in 2018.[23]
It was reported that police also investigated whether Bradley Murdoch may have been involved,[26] although Murdoch was serving a custodial sentence from November 1995 until February 1997. In October 2006, it was also announced that Mark Dixie was a prime suspect in the killings, and that Macro had requested DNA samples.[27] However, WA Police Deputy Commissioner Murray Lampard was later quoted as saying "Dixie was closely investigated at the time and eventually ruled out as a suspect."[28][29][30]
On 22 December 2016, Bradley Robert Edwards (48) was arrested at his Kewdale house in relation to the deaths of both Rimmer and Glennon.[31] According to ABC News, he is believed to have had no previous link to the case. The next day, Edwards was charged with both murders.[32] He has also been charged in relation to two other alleged attacks: a house break-in and rape of an 18-year-old woman in Huntingdale on 15 February 1988, and the abduction and rape of a 17-year-old girl in Claremont on 12 February 1995,[note 1][32][33][34] On 22 February 2018, Edwards was also charged with the wilful murder of the third victim, Spiers.[35] Edwards is expected to face trial starting on 18 November 2019.[36][37][38]
One of the main pieces of evidence in the trial will be a Telstra van: Edwards was working for the company as a technician at the time, and it will be claimed that he used the vehicle to execute the crimes. This is corroborated by a witness who recalled seeing a Telstra van parked on multiple occasions at the Karrakatta Cemetery "for no apparent reason", both after that attack and before Spiers' disappearance.[3] According to the prosecutor, Carmel Barbagallo, the state intends to present this evidence as part of a case called "Telstra Living Witness project", where between 1995 and 1997 a man with a Telstra van stopped to look at women and offer them rides.[3]

Possible related cases
It has been suggested by journalist Liam Bartlett that Spiers was not the first victim.[24] He wrote that police have told the father of a fourth missing woman, 22-year-old Julie Cutler, that his daughter was probably a victim of the Claremont killer. Cutler, a university student from Fremantle, vanished after leaving a staff function at the Parmelia Hilton Hotel in Perth at 9:00 pm on 20 June 1988.[2] Her car was found in the surf near the groyne at Cottesloe Beach two days later, and her fate remains unknown.[24]
Other possible cases include that of Lisa Brown (19), a prostitute who disappeared on 10 November 1998, and Sara McMahon (20), who disappeared on 8 November 2000.[2]

Justice Stephen Hall ruled out several pieces of evidence as 'not relevant'. 

Architecture of BrainNet. Two participants (“Sender 1” and “Sender 2”) each use a Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) based on EEG to convey information about a collaborative task (here, a Tetris-like game) directly to the brain of the third participant (“Receiver”). 

"Nothing was your own except the few cubic centimetres inside your skull ..." ...George Orwell 1984 ..

Fast forward to the year 2018 "... in the past 5 or so years in the social network has already been very transforming .... FaceBook among other has disrupted ordinary life as we know it... life in the office .. personal life ... life on our cell phones... and its connected us with hundreds of people we know personally from our school .. our neighbours and our friends  in ordinary life .. and with hundreds and perhaps even thousands more  people that we don't know personally ...but whom we may share common interests with .... or who may thumbs up our FaceBook Post or like something that we do ..and its just already radically changed things in many respects .. but that's just the very beginning ... because the idea of a social network is about to take on a profoundly radical change that could make everything else that we have seen on the Internet so far seem meaningless ... and this new era is just beginning ... it's just .taking off... and the potential for this radical change is immediately evident is you let sink is what's going on ... these changes are just taking hold ... for the first time .. researches at Cornwall University have linked up the brains of multiple people using Brain to Brain Interfaces so they can collaborate and work on specific problems ... in the case of this study was to win a the Game of Tetris ... so they linked up three people and calling this System ..BrainNet .... these researches say we represent BrainNet, which to our knowledge is the first multi person non invasive direct Brain To Brain Interface for collaborative problem solving ... the Interface combines electroencephalography (EEG) to record brain signals and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to deliver information noninvasively to the brain.  

That part they have been able to do for many years .... but now they are starting to use it in a targeted way ...

The Brain To Brain Interface allows three human subjects to collaborate and solve a task using direct brain-to-brain communication. Two of the three subjects are senders, whose brains are decoded using real time and EEG Data Analysis.... now if you have seen film "The Minds of Men "... that is one of the most important points that emerged out of the study of Cybernetics and out of the study of the brain in an attempt to modify the ability to use real time EEG Data  Analysis to read the brain and to write the brain ,,, 

Here they are using the decoding if Real Time EEG Data Analysis to extract decisions as to whether to rotate a block in a Tetris type game before it is dropped to fill in a line .. the decisions are transferred via the Internet through a receiver who can not see the game screen ..the decisions are delivered to the receiver's brain through magnetic stimulation of the reciprocal cortex .. the receiver integrates the information received and makes a decision using EEG Interface about whether to turn the block or keep it in the same position ,,, and in the second round they have a chance to validate as if to say .. is that what we are meant to do here? .. and they say Yes or No to confirm and they use five different groups of these three people .. and they had an overall accuracy in this study of 81.3% ... they pretty much got it right...

Part of Donald Morey's abduction and murder kit is similar to the items that Western Australia Police officer  Con Bayers, who was the former head of the prostitution taskforce said he found in Donald Morey's Commodore Holden car boot driving through Northbridge, Perth, Western Australia, that looked liked and unmarked police car . Mr and Mrs Gareth Allen say that Donald Morey always carried around a black bag they found in Donald Morey's room which contained a real of silver, gaffer tape, two knives and explicit pornograpghic material of what looked like dead women in sexual positions...
A serious question that needs to be answered by Karl O'Callaghan, the Western Australian Commissioner of Police is:
Why did it take over a week for the Western Australian Police for come and collect a bag belonging to career criminal and convicted attempted murderer Donald Morey which the two owners of the house in Marangaroo, Mr and Mrs Gareth Allen who were the bosses of Donald Morey say contained a real of silver, gaffer tape, two knives and explicit pornograpghic material of what looked like dead women in sexual positions...
which is similar to the items that Western Australia Police officer  Con Bayers, who was the former head of the prostitution taskforce said he found in Donald Morey's Commodore Holden car boot driving through Northbridge, Perth, Western Australia, that looked liked and unmarked police car 

Name: Sarah Anne McMAHON, 

Age when missing: 20 years, 

Eyes: Green, Hair: Auburn, Height: 173cms, Build: Slim
Circumstances: Sarah McMahon has not attended work since Wednesday 8 November 2000. Sarah was last seen driving her vehicle, a 1986 White Ford Meteor Sedan, registered  number 7FO-731 in an easterly direction on Great Eastern Highway, Greenmount. 
Sarah Anne McMahon  was last seen wearing dark jeans, black turtle neck sweater and black suede jacket. Concern is held for her safety and welfare.
Fears for the safety of a 20-year-old woman missing for 13 days 
have increased following the discovery of the woman's car at a hospital carpark. 
Sarah McMahon was last seen leaving her workplace in suburban Claremont on November 8, although there have been a number of unconfirmed sightings of her since then. She has made no contact with her family. Ms McMahon's white Ford Meteor sedan was found last night in the emergency department car park of Swan District Hospital.  Police today refused to say who discovered the vehicle or whether anything of significance 
had been found inside.

The Trial Of The Century
Edwards has remained in custody since he last faced court.
On Monday, November 25 the murder trial of Bradley Robert Edwards begins, as does the possibility of closure for the families of the three women he is accused of killing in the Perth suburb of Claremont in the mid-1990s.
For more than two decades, their names have been etched into the minds of many Australians, especially young women who feared walking the streets at night knowing a killer was yet to be caught.
The stories of the murders of Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon, who disappeared from the affluent suburb on separate occasions, all after nights out with friends, served as a chilling reminder that sometimes the streets are not as safe as they seem.
For 20 years, there was deafening silence as an investigation -- one of Australia's longest-running and most expensive -- turned cold.
Then, on December 22, 2016, there was a breakthrough -- Edwards was charged with murdering Rimmer and Glennon. Two months later he was also charged with the murder of Spiers.
Edwards has pleaded not guilty to all three murders. However, he has admitted to attacks on two other women, including the abduction and rape of a teenager who was also on her way home from a night out in Claremont in 1995.
Almost three years after charges were laid over the three murders, Edwards will face trial from Monday, it is expected to last six months.
Before the trial begins, here's what we can tell you about the case that has gripped the nation.


The Victims

Sarah Spiers was 18 when she vanished while celebrating Australia Day on January 26, 1996.
Spiers and her friends ended up at the Club Bayview in Claremont. About 2am the next morning she had called for a taxi from a phone booth on the corner of Stirling Rd and Stirling Highway.
It only took several minutes for the taxi to arrive, but Spiers was nowhere to be seen.
Her body has never been found.

Jane Rimmer vanished from the same area in the early hours of June 9, 1996.
The 23-year-old childcare worker had also been out with friends and ended up leaving them at a taxi rank outside the Continental Hotel in Claremont.
Police later released CCTV which shows an unidentified man approaching Rimmer outside the venue before the pair disappear.
Her body was found in bushland in Wellard, south of Perth in August 1996.

Ciara Glennon, 27, was last seen after a visit to the Continental Hotel on March 15, 1997.
The promising lawyer had returned home to Perth from an overseas trip to attend her sister's wedding.
The night she went missing, Glennon had left the venue just after midnight and was spotted at an intersection between Stirling Highway and Stirling St before she vanished.
Her family contacted police after she missed a hair appointment and her sister's hens party.
Glennon's body was found in bushland at Eglinton, in Perth's north, the following month.
Glennon's murder, which came as police were trying to deliver answers to the families of Spiers and Rimmer, forced WA's then-Crime Commander Bob Ibbotson to declare what the public had feared:
“We certainly have fears that there is a serial killer at loose in Perth.”

A Marriage Ends
Meanwhile, Edwards was working as a technician for Telstra and having problems at home. His first marriage is breaking down.
WA prosecutors have alleged the timeline of the above murders correlate with Edwards' marriage troubles.
The accused married his first wife in November 1991, but their relationship became strained when she had an affair with another man in 1994.
In 1995, the couple grew distant and by January 1996 Edwards' wife left him to be with another man.
On Australia Day, 1996, it's alleged his wife rejected a request to watch the fireworks together.
Hours later Spiers vanished.
In June 1996, Edwards’ learnt his wife was having a baby with the other man.


On June 9 Rimmer vanished.
In March 1997, the home he had shared with his wife was sold.
On March 15 Glennon disappeared.
Two weeks later, on April 1, 1997, it's alleged Edwards met his second wife.
On April 3 Glennon's body is found.

The Investigation
An investigation dubbed 'Macro Task Force' is set up in June 1996, following the disappearances of Spiers and Rimmer.
It would go on to become WA's longest-running and most expensive investigation, and one that faced considerable scrutiny and several reviews.
During the investigation, which involved hundreds of officers, more than 500 people who were in Claremont on the night of the vanishings were interviewed.
Edwards was not one of them.
Celebrities such as Australian singer Kate Ceberano were used in a high-profile advertising campaign appealing for information, but still nothing.
The city's young women were urged not to venture out alone at night.

The Taxi Probe 
Taxi drivers quickly became a key target of the investigation, given the similar circumstances between each case.
Background checks were taken of all Perth's taxi drivers, with some voluntarily submitting saliva swabs and fingerprints.
One taxi driver, Steven Ross, was considered an early person of interest. Ross was never arrested and has always maintained his innocence.
Ross had told officers he had been driving taxis on each night that the women disappeared. He also believed he had driven Spiers the night before she vanished.
According to reports, Ross lived in a granny flat at the back of a house owned by his friend Peter Weygers, then the mayor of Claremont, who was also a person of interest. He too has never been arrested, nor had charges laid against him.
In 2015 Weygers demanded an apology from WA police and $10 million in compensation, claiming his reputation had been smeared by the investigation.
Police also looked at Lance Williams, a public servant who lived with his elderly parents in the town of Cottesloe, next to Claremont.
Police began watching Williams towards the end of 1997 when it emerged he tended to drive around the Claremont area at night.
One night, he offered a lift to an undercover policewoman.
Police arrested Williams in February 1998 but released him due to lack of evidence.
Williams died of cancer in 2018, aged 61, and the former WA police commissioner conceded his family deserved an apology.

A Breakthrough
Days before Christmas 2016, police announced a breakthrough.
WA detectives confirmed they had arrested a 48-year-old man from the suburb of Kewdale in connection to the Claremont serial killings.
Hours later it was revealed Edwards had been charged over the murders of Glennon and Rimmer.
He was also charged over sex attacks on two other women, including the alleged rape of a 17-year-old girl on her way home from a night out in Claremont in 1995.
It's alleged she was bound, gagged and driven to nearby Karrakatta cemetery where she was raped.
It's also alleged Edwards attacked an 18-year-old woman in her home in the Perth suburb of Huntingdale in 1988.
In February 2018, Edwards was also charged with Spiers' murder,


A Confession
Edwards maintains his innocence over the three Claremont killings of Spiers, Rimmer and Glennon.
However, in a stunning development, last month during a pre-trial hearing he confessed to two of the attacks he is accused of.
Edwards has pleaded guilty to five of eight charges.
 
The Trial Of The Century
Edwards has remained in custody since he last faced court.
His trial has been delayed multiple times due to the volume of evidence and Edwards' admissions of guilt to some of the charges. It is slated to start on Monday, November 25.
Justice Stephen Hall is the man who will decide Edwards' fate.
The prosecution alleges Edwards had a long obsession with women's undergarments, which escalated to sexual assault and abduction, then murders -- which occurred during allegedly tumultuous times in his first marriage.
Edwards maintains he is not the Claremont serial killer.

The Claremont serial killings - a timeline

February 1988 Huntingdale attack charges: A 19-year-old Mr Edwards, living in his Huntingdale home with his family, is accused of entering a woman’s house and attacking her inside her bedroom by sitting on her back and attempting to force fabric into her mouth. She struggles and he runs from the house.
Proposed evidence: The attacker leaves behind a women’s kimono stained with his semen DNA profile. The state alleges the DNA matches Mr Edwards' DNA profile.
1988 Huntingdale prowler: The state alleges Mr Edwards prowled the streets within a one kilometre radius of his home, stealing women’s underwear and night gowns, and on occasion wearing them.
Proposed evidence: The prowler leaves behind finger and palm prints and foot impressions at a residence. The state alleges the fingerprints match Mr Edwards'.
May 1990 Hollywood Hospital assault: Mr Edwards confesses to attempting to drag a social worker into a toilet block at Hollywood Hospital, where he was contracted for work at the time. Mr Edwards gagged the woman with a piece of cloth, but she managed to fight him off. Police later found cable ties in his pockets. The incident occurred after Mr Edwards had learned his then-girlfriend had cheated on him.
Proposed evidence: Mr Edwards’ fingerprints were taken and entered into WA Police’s database.
May 1990 Mr Edwards pleads guilty to the common assault of a social worker. He is sentenced to two years’ probation.
February 1995 Karrakatta Cemetery rape charge: Mr Edwards is accused of abducting and raping a 17-year-old girl late at night as she walked to a friend’s house from Club Bay View in Claremont. He allegedly bound and gagged the teenager, and placed a hood over her head, before driving her to the cemetery to rape her.
Proposed evidence: DNA of the Karrakatta cemetery rapist is taken from the victim, who attends hospital that evening. The state alleges it matches Mr Edwards' DNA profile.

Court hears Australian man who killed Irish woman 22 years ago was 'depraved individual'

https://www.irishexaminer.com/breakingnews/ireland/court-hears-australian-man-who-killed-irish-woman-22-years-ago-was-depraved-individual-905877.html

Wednesday, February 20, 2019


Coment made by INL News Investigation Team

The above headline could easily lead the reader to believe  that Bradley Robert Edwards is guilty of the Claremont Serial abuctions and murders even before he has had any legal judgement against him at his forthcoming trial


An Australian man accused of murdering an Irishwoman near the city of Perth 22 years ago has been described as a depraved individual with a fetish for wearing women's clothes.
At a pre-trial hearing in Perth which ended today, prosecutors outlined evidence against Bradley Robert Edwards for the abduction and murder of 27-year-old Ciara Glennon and two young Australian women in the 1990s.
The prosecution alleged that in 1997, Edwards abducted Ms Glennon from the Perth suburb of Claremont and murdered her, before dumping her body, according to a report by ABC News.

Ms Glennon, whose family are from Westport, Co Mayo, disappeared on March 14, 1997, after a night out celebrating St Patrick's Day in Claremont. Her body, which was identified by her parents, was discovered 18 days later in the suburb of Eglington. A post-mortem revealed that her neck had been cut. 
Police allegedly found Edward's DNA under Ms Glennon’s fingernails. The court was also told that fibres found in her hair matched those from a car Edwards had access to at the time of her disappearance.
When Edwards was arrested in 2016, police said they discovered “extreme pornography” at his home. The hearing before the Supreme Court of Western Australia began on Monday after a last-minute adjournment when he was hospitalised with self-inflicted stab wounds obtained in prison just hours before he was due to appear. 

Edwards has pleaded not guilty to a number of charges, including the murders of Ciara Glennon, Jane Rimmer, 23, and Sarah Spiers, 18, who were abducted from Claremont’s entertainment district in 1996 and 1997.
He is also accused of the sexual assaults of two teenage girls in 1988 and 1995.
State Prosecutor Carmen Barbagallo began proceedings by detailing the alleged attacks carried out by Edwards, which she dubbed the “Huntingdale prowler series”. The court heard he had an obsessive interest in abduction and rape.

Ms Barbagallo told the court that the accused stole women’s underwear from clotheslines, including a silk kimono that he wore while sexually assaulting an 18-year-old girl in her home in 1988.
It is alleged that Edwards, who was 19 at the time, straddled the teenager while trying to shove a piece of fabric into her mouth.
Ms Barbagallo argued that Edwards was "an introverted, socially awkward man… who had a long-standing tendency for the collection and wearing of women's underwear". 

She said that pornography and "violent and erotic stories" seized after his arrest, showed he had an "obsessive sexual interest in the abduction, imprisonment and forcible rape of women in degrading and violent circumstances".
Edwards is due to face a non-jury trial on July 22, which is expected to run for nine months.

Above the photo of Convicted attempted murderer Donald Morey,

who in 2005 received 13 year jail for a conviction of trying to murder a street prostitute in Perth, Western Australia. Donald Morey was also the prime suspect of the murder of another prostitute in that used to work on the streets the girl that Donald Morey was found guilty of attempting to murder.
The coroner investigating and reviewing the disappearance of Sarah McMahon and the police named career criminal Donald Morey as the prime suspect of what the coroner felt was the unlawful death of Sarah McMahon, rather than just a disappearance of Sarah McMahon on the 8th of November, 2000
Morey claimed he never saw Ms McMahon the day she vanished, but had helped her formulate a plan to flee the country illegally.
"She's overseas, she's alive and she has two children," he said.
"I have been in contact with Sarah basically ever since."
If you want to put her life in danger you f..king wear it.
But he refused to say where Ms McMahon was living, claiming he was protecting her and her children from danger by not revealing her whereabouts.
Morey would also not say how he has been communicating with Ms McMahon after he was imprisoned in 2005, for fear of being "locked up in maximum security indefinitely".
"Do not put her life in danger," he told Mr Urquhart when questioned about where Ms McMahon was and how she left the country.
Morey also maintained his innocence in relation to the attempted murder conviction, which he suggested he'd been set up for because of Ms McMahon's "disappearance".
"It was Sarah's decision to leave - not mine," he said.
Sarah's family have not heard from her in 12 years.
Morey met Ms McMahon at her older sister's house months before she disappeared and maintained there was never a sexual relationship between the pair.
"She could confide in me," he said. "We just talked".
Ms McMahon had intended to call her mother before she left, but had lost her phone, Morey told the inquest.
He said he was unable to contact her for more than a month after she left but sent her text messages and repeatedly tried to call.
"All I can tell you is I sent a hell of a lot of text messages," he said.
But Mr Urquhart told the Coroner there were no records of Morey trying to contact Ms McMahon by phone after November 8, 2000.
Morey then refused to answer any further questions and accused Mr Urquhart of "winding" him up when he had a "crook heart".
"Mr Morey it seems to me you just don't want to answer the hard questions," Mr Urquhart said.
Morey requested a medic and was taken back into lockup.
"If you want to put her life in danger you f..king wear it," he said.
Ms McMahon's sister Amanda Smith giving evidence earlier in the week described Morey as "creepy" and "too interested" in her younger sister.
The inquest has also heard evidence of a black bag found in Morey's bedroom after Ms McMahon's disappearance, which according to three witnesses contained gaffer tape, rope, knives and graphic pornographic magazines which involved fake corpses in compromising positions.

Morey accepted he had a black bag he used to carry his lunch in for work, but rejected ever buying the pornographic material.
A serious question that needs to be answered by Karl O'Callaghan, the Western Australian Commissioner of Police is:
Why did it take over a week for the Western Australian Police for come and collect a bag belonging to career criminal and convicted attempted murderer Donald Morey which the two owners of the house in Marangaroo, Mr and Mrs Gareth Allen who were the bosses of Donald Morey say contained a real of silver, gaffer tape, two knives and explicit pornograpghic material of what looked like dead women in sexual positions...
which is similar to the items that Western Australia Police officer  Con Bayers, who was the former head of the prostitution taskforce said he found in Donald Morey's Commodore Holden car boot driving through Northbridge, Perth, Western Australia, that looked liked and unmarked police car 


Coroner says missing woman Sarah McMahon was murder victim
http://www.news.com.au/national/western-australia/coroner-says-missing-woman-sarah-mcmahon-was-murder-victim/news-story/d64ef5cdd62f86daf5f6034797190448 JANUARY 18, 2013
Angie Raphael AAP
THE West Australian coroner has found that a 20-year-old woman missing for more than 12 years was a victim of a homicide, but has refused to rule on whether a suspect in the case was involved in the crime.
Sarah Anne McMahon disappeared on November 8, 2000 after telling a colleague she was meeting a friend at 5.30pm and then failing to pick up her sister at 8.30pm that evening.
Donald Victor Morey, 57, has long been considered a suspect in her disappearance and was the last person to speak to Ms McMahon before she disappeared.
After the initial police investigation drew a blank, a further investigation was launched after Morey was convicted of the attempted murder of a Perth prostitute in 2004 and sentenced to 13 years in prison.
He had also been a person of interest in the death of another prostitute the previous year.
However, police were again unable to substantiate enough evidence against Morey, who has consistently denied any involvement in Ms McMahon's disappearance.
A cold case review of both investigations was launched last year and Morey said he was still in contact with Ms McMahon, who he claimed was living in Canada with her two children.
Coroner Alastair Hope said on Thursday that because Ms McMahon had not contacted her loved ones in more than 12 years, he was confident she was dead.
"The circumstances in which Ms McMahon disappeared are sinister and I have confidently been able to exclude the possibility that she died by way of natural causes, accident or suicide,'' he said.
"In my view, the evidence points overwhelmingly to the proposition that she died by way of unlawful homicide.''
Mr Hope said there was no evidence that Ms McMahon left the country and there were no records held in Medicare, Centrelink, the Australian Taxation Office, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade or her bank that would suggest that she was alive in Australia after that time.
A key piece of evidence examined at the inquest was a statement from Natasha Tracy-Ann Kendrick, dated November 11, 2011.
In her statement, Ms Kendrick said she walked into Morey's room and saw a bloodied naked girl on the bed with an "old fashioned rope'' around her neck.
Ms Kendrick claimed that she later saw Morey carrying ``something wrapped in a quilt over his left shoulder'' and said she knew it was McMahon's body.
However, Mr Hope noted that police were unable to find evidence to corroborate her account.
He said there was also evidence capable of supporting a conclusion that Morey lied to police about his movements on November 8, 2000 and falsified documents to support those lies.
"It is always possible that some further evidence may come to light which could result in criminal charges being laid at some later date,'' he said.
"In that context, I do not propose to make any finding in relation to Mr Morey's involvement.''

'Sarah's still alive, living overseas'

Rania Spooner DECEMBER 14 2012
Sarah McMahon was 20 when she was last seen in November, 2000. 
A convicted prisoner told an inquest into the disappearance of Perth woman Sarah McMahon more than a decade ago she's still alive and living overseas with two children.
The last confirmed sighting of Ms McMahon, then 20 years old, was on November 8, 2000.
She was seen driving away from her Claremont workplace while talking on the telephone, the inquest into her suspected death heard in Perth this week.
Before leaving work she had mentioned she was going to "see a bloke" in the Bassendean area that afternoon, the Coroner's Court heard.
The last person she took a call from was Donald Morey, a man 25 years her senior, who has since been convicted of trying to strangle a prostitute to death in 2003.

Currently serving 13 years' jail for the attempted murder, Morey, now 57 and in poor health due to a heart condition, appeared at the Perth inquest into Ms McMahon's suspected death on Friday.
According to a work log he kept for his job with a trucking company at the time, Morey had been cleaning and refuelling trucks at his workplace when Ms McMahon "disappeared".
But Counsel Assisting the Coroner Philip Urquhart accused Morey of fabricating the entry.
Mr Urquhart said there was no record of him using his fuel card, while phone tower records placed his mobile near the Bassendean area that afternoon.
Morey claimed he never saw Ms McMahon the day she vanished, but had helped her formulate a plan to flee the country illegally.
"She's overseas, she's alive and she has two children," he said.
"I have been in contact with Sarah basically ever since."
If you want to put her life in danger you f..king wear it.
But he refused to say where Ms McMahon was living, claiming he was protecting her and her children from danger by not revealing her whereabouts.
Morey would also not say how he has been communicating with Ms McMahon after he was imprisoned in 2005, for fear of being "locked up in maximum security indefinitely".
"Do not put her life in danger," he told Mr Urquhart when questioned about where Ms McMahon was and how she left the country.
Morey also maintained his innocence in relation to the attempted murder conviction, which he suggested he'd been set up for because of Ms McMahon's "disappearance".
"It was Sarah's decision to leave - not mine," he said.
Sarah's family have not heard from her in 12 years.
Morey met Ms McMahon at her older sister's house months before she disappeared and maintained there was never a sexual relationship between the pair.
"She could confide in me," he said. "We just talked".
Ms McMahon had intended to call her mother before she left, but had lost her phone, Morey told the inquest.
He said he was unable to contact her for more than a month after she left but sent her text messages and repeatedly tried to call.
"All I can tell you is I sent a hell of a lot of text messages," he said.
But Mr Urquhart told the Coroner there were no records of Morey trying to contact Ms McMahon by phone after November 8, 2000.

Morey then refused to answer any further questions and accused Mr Urquhart of "winding" him up when he had a "crook heart".
"Mr Morey it seems to me you just don't want to answer the hard questions," Mr Urquhart said.
Morey requested a medic and was taken back into lockup.
"If you want to put her life in danger you f..king wear it," he said.
Ms McMahon's sister Amanda Smith giving evidence earlier in the week described Morey as "creepy" and "too interested" in her younger sister.
The inquest has also heard evidence of a black bag found in Morey's bedroom after Ms McMahon's disappearance, which according to three witnesses contained gaffer tape, rope, knives and graphic pornographic magazines which involved fake corpses in compromising positions.
Morey accepted he had a black bag he used to carry his lunch in for work, but rejected ever buying the pornographic material.
"Common sense tells you I'm not into that sort of garbage for starters," he said.
"Man, if I'm supposed to be this mad serial killer running around, why would I be carrying this bag around with me."
The state coroner Alastair Hope will hand down his findings on January 17. It is not known whether they would involve recommendations to the DPP.

Each year the City presents Citizenship Awards to outstanding individuals and groups for their contributions.
Mr Ronald Leslie  Carey, a former re
tired Western Australian Police Superintendent,  a South Guildford resident, was nominated for his many years of community service and his passion for caring for others.
He has volunteered with Community Care Services for seven years and dedicates his time to being a volunteer driver, assisting people who need transport to medical and social appointments.
The former police officer regularly volunteers up to three shifts a week and is always available to fill in and do extra when required.
He is also the chairman of the Swan Community Care Services Advisory Committee, which oversees 80 volunteers.
The committee is instrumental in providing services to assist the elderly and younger people with a disability to remain in their homes. Last year, Mr Carey ramped up his efforts in lobbying for more aged care planning in the City of Swan.
He said he hoped to continue that this year. “We’ve contacted 21 aged-care providers about the old Swan District Hospital site, so we’re hoping something will come of that,” he said.
Meanwhile, 16-year-old Brooke Lippinkhof won the Citizenship Award for a person under 25 years for her community group volunteering efforts in the Altone region.

Claremont serial killer trial of Bradley Edwards may be delayed as new evidence emerges 
By Charlotte Hamlyn  - 24 Apr 2019
https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-04-24/new-evidence-claremont-serial-killer-trial-bradley-edwards/11041856 
 A case management hearing was held today ahead of the trial, which is scheduled to begin on July 22.
Mr Edwards, 50, is accused of murdering Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon, who all vanished from the Claremont night precinct in the mid-1990s.
He is also accused of sexually motivated attacks on two other women, one in 1988 and another in 1995.
He denies all the allegations against him. 
Today prosecutor Carmel Barbagallo told the court new pieces of clothing had been obtained by police that required forensic testing.
She said the items were provided by a Telstra employee who had worked for the company in the 1990s, and the clothing was "utilised by technicians at the time".
Mr Edwards worked as a Telstra technician at the time of the killings and drove a work-issued car.
Evidence potentially 'quite significant'
The court heard the prosecution planned to compare fibres from the clothing with fibres found on other materials.
However, that testing and a subsequent ChemCentre report was unlikely to be complete before the end of June — allowing little time for the material to be disclosed to, and considered by, the defence team ahead of the trial start date.
Justice Stephen Hall questioned the timing of that report and whether delaying the trial would lead to even more new evidence coming to light.
"This is going to potentially imperil the start of the trial," Justice Hall said.
"Every time there is a shift in dates there's a risk that other inquiries will be pursued."
Ms Barbagallo said staff were progressing as quickly as possible, while ensuring the accuracy of their work.
"Those working on this are acutely aware of the urgency of it," she said.
"The potential of this evidence, we say, is quite significant.
"We're prepared to draw a line in the sand but this evidence falls to this side of that."

Victim's family accepting of possible delay
Defence lawyer Paul Yovich suggested such a report would take his team eight to 12 weeks to review.
He said he was eager to see the trial start on time but also wanted to ensure the state's case was fully disclosed.
Justice Hall did not amend the July 22 start date today, but acknowledged it was subject to change.
Both Don Spiers, the father of Sarah, and Denis Glennon, Ciara's father, were in court.
As he left the building, Mr Spiers was asked whether he was frustrated by the prospect of a further delay.
"That's the process and that's to be accepted," he said.
The timing will be discussed further at a pre trial hearing scheduled for June 18.
Topics: murder-and-manslaughter, law-crime-and-justice, perth-6000, wa

The court was told the item was being analysed so that fibres from the piece of clothing could be compared with other fibres in evidence, and Ms Barbagallo foreshadowed a report may not be complete until mid to late June.
Justice Hall said he was concerned the new inquiries may jeopardise plans to start the nine-month trial – which has been billed as the biggest trial in WA history – on July 22.
Mr Edwards is accused of abducting and murdering Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon from the streets of Claremont in the mid-1990s.
He is also due to stand trial over an alleged sex attack on an 18-year-old woman in Huntingdale in 1988 and the rape of a 17-year-old in Karrakatta cemetery in 1995.
“This is potentially going to imperil the start of this trial,” Justice Hall said. “It’s looking increasingly in danger of not occurring.”

Australia Claremont Serial Killer, 1996 - 1997, Perth, Western Australia -

Donald Victor Morey, aka Matusevich crabstick said:  
10-28-2016
  There is enough reports to suggest he is ex army. Im not sure how old he is. Yes, there is a few guys around that use the Im ex SAS as a shield   when they fear someone might give them a clobber. He might have been a mechanic? selling $10,000 bundles of amphetamine is organised   crime connections.    ' the was selling Sarah McMahon $10000 blocks of amphetamine,

 its not like he wouldn't have the cash for access to new vehicles, and cut and shut rebuild vehicles he could set up himself. Built fake taxis even. Because a fake taxi didn't have to buy a taxi plate, fake taxis were a cash cow.
If Morey is SAS or ex-military, he may have been trained in all the above. 
Mechanic being one of the core subjects for SAS. (SAS barracks are a stones throw from Stirling road, Claremont.)  Being SAS with a station wagon set up with a LSD diff, Morey could have driven any the back dirt tracks off the main roads up and down to the dump points with an element of ease. Police have said, it is someone who polishes their car a lot, with care to detail.
 Career Criminal  and self confessed SAS killer of many people, Donald Morey ..  and has admitted he was the last person to see or talk to Sarah Anne McMahan alive ... and according to his phone records was in the area of Bassendean the night Sarah Anne McMahon was talking to Donald Morey on her telephone and saying she was heading to see a friend in Bassendean and there was  strong evidence that Donald Morey aka Matusevich lied to the coroner about being at his boss Mr Allen's truck yard on the night that Sarah Anne McMahon Disappeared ... and a witness said she saw a bloodied dead body, with a rope around her neck that  looked like Sarah Anne McMahon is his room at his boss Mr Allen's home ... 
and that evening, saw him carrying what looked liked a dead body over his shoulder, wrapped up, out of the house, 
and said she helped clean up Donald's Morey's room at Mr Allen's home ... and Donald Morey aka Matusevich with Mr Allen's wife and Mr Allan saying that Donald Morey aka Matusevich   had a bag with all the things needed to kill someone  that Donald Morey aka  always carried around with him .... but the police after been told about this bag being at Mr and Mrs Allan's home waited for a about a week to go               and collect this important evidence ... giving plenty of time of Donald Morey's female partner he spent the weekends with in a house in  Chidlow ....to come and collect the black bag ... which gives the strong impression that as a witness has said .. 
 that Donald Morey worked as a killer and a illegal drug dealer for corrupt police and other powerful politicians,, powerful business people and the Chinese Triads and was protected by these corrupt police .,..
who rang Donald Morey's female partner to inform her she better quickly collect Donald Morey's damming black bag which 
help all the tools of trade to abduct and quickly and silently murder someone ..... 
and Donald Morey says he has constant contact with Sarah Anne McMahon since November, 2000 ...  and Sarah Anne McMahon has not even contacted her own family ... and not contacted anyone else buy career criminal and
 self confessed killer .... yet will not tell anyone where Sarah Anne McMahon is .... other that saying she is living in Canada 
 under another name and has two children......then with all that evidence  why haven't the Western Australian Police arrested Donald Morey on some charge associated with the disappearance of Saran Anne McMahon before Donald Morey is released from prison sometime in 2017 when his  13 year prison sentence ends .. so that Donald Morey can be refused bail while he goes to court over the new charge or charges associated with the disappearance of Sarah Ann McMahon on about the 8th of November, 2000....  and at the same time further investigate the connection of Donald Morey with the abduction/murder of  Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon. Lisa Brown and other missing girls ...

It does make one wonder if there were a group that grew or diminished to do some things together and individuals that struck out on their own. Whether all the attacks were known to every individual of the group is a big question, but if there was such loose association, then 20 or 30 odd years of passing before an arrest, which doesn't appear to be from information passed onto Macro, would suggest that anyone else in the group either had no idea, or that the group decided to self abandon at the time of the CSK in fear of being accused, maybe without realising the decision to lay low & go mum was being pressed by the actual perpetrator?
If the accused was part of this group, was he the leader of just a patsy of it?
I wonder if someone else in the group knew of his past alleged offences?
That knowledge would give a perpetrator considerable advantage to deflect an investigation into a patsy. The reports of the accused masturbating into sandwich bags, throws opens a possible patsy theory, because if a perpetrator got hold of such a sandwich bag before the CSKs, it opens an avenue for spiking the crime scenes at the time of offence, or even much later if the same perpetrator ever got access to the collected exhibits, prior to the retesting which was reported to of occurred some 10 odd years later. What caused me to speculate upon this theory has been posted beforehand. The names have been given to Police. Some here know those names.
There's one chap which is a friend of the accused since childhood association at Claremont Speedway with the accused who could fit the description of skinny with blonde hair, although he hardly has hair now. Compare him with the CCTV imagine at the Conti. And someone who once worked at Kewdale Telstra depot as a technician who after taking a redundancy once had a job looking after exhibits, has an interesting online presence upon sex dating sites.
None of this proves the theory. It just makes the theory possible.
Whether the alleged attacks involving more than one person prior to the CSKs are related in any way shape or form to the CSKs must be proved first IMO before the theory can be advanced.
At present there is no evidence of anyone who knew the accused being alleged to of being involved in any crime, or cover up.

 truecrimenewsweekly.com
Extract» One former WA police officer has spoken out about these crimes, and has questioned Taskforce Macro’s secrecy and obsessive focus on singular suspects. Con Bayens served as a police officer for 26 years, and headed the prostitution unit. In 2000, he was part of an organised sweep, Operation Bounty, through Northbridge in Perth, which focused on sex workers and their clients. He has stated that he did not believe that Lisa Brown was killed by her pimp – a story proposed by WA police – because, he has said, sex workers on the street do not have pimps, but are highly disorganised and have terrible drug habits. They work for cash, and move around spontaneously.
Con Bayens has a disquieting story that during Operation Bounty he investigated a suspect who had called a sex worker to his car. Bayens described the suspect as having an air of authority, and good communication skills. As outlined in Debi Marshall’s book Devil’s Garden, the boot of his car was found to be lined with plastic, and to have “an arsenal of abduction weapons, zip ties, … scissors”. The suspect had: “completed a taxi driving course and done one shift. He was so hot as a possible Claremont suspect …”
In 2015, Con Bayens said that: “What I saw that night has haunted me for a lot of years.”
He states that he reported this to Taskforce Macro, and they told him not to worry about it, because: “We’ve got our man”. As Bayens concluded: “But as time was to tell, they had sweet fu** all”., Sent from my HTC 2PQ910 using Tapatalk,

shelly said:
Some of them took second jobs. I had a neighbour who was a Telstra Tech and he picked up night work working door security. Prostitutes don't seem to be BREs preferred target but there's some truth in it that when women on the fringes go missing sometimes it isn't even reported.
You'd reckon. Con Bayens hasn't said anything since the arrest far as I'm aware, I wonder if like Ferguson he's been dropping into the pretrial hearings.
Can we assume that the driver Bayens saw wasnt BRE then? if it was then surely something would of been mentioned about it by now, or he would of been called at the propensity hearings to testify that BRE was driving about with a suspicious setup. So if it wasnt BRE, nothing has been released to say this person was investigated and cleared, who was it and are they still out and about in society? Would make for an interesting conversation between the defence and Bayens.
Melsy, Club Legend, Jul 14, 2019
If it was an ex police car, it would have been bought at government auctions much like Telstra vehicles in the day.
I remember Bayens saying he had pulled over an IT worker for police.
"He stopped a man he believed to be loitering in an unmarked police car. "The boot was lined in blue plastic. There was wire ties, a pair of pliers, some masking tape," Bayens said." 
Why we didn't catch the Claremont killer, The former head of the Western Australian Police task-force responsible for catching the notorious Claremont killer has spoken out about the investigation that never hit its mark.
au.news.yahoo.com, 
Jul 15, 2019  31st May 2015. It seems WA Police and Bayens are in disagreement.

Digital Citizenship and Digital Citizenship Education
https://www.coe.int/en/web/digital-citizenship-education/digital-citizenship-and-digital-citizenship-education
Supporting children and young people to participate safely, effectively, critically and responsibly in a world filled with social media and digital technologies is a priority for educators the world over. The notion of digital citizenship has evolved to encompass a range of competences, attributes and behaviours that harness the benefits and opportunities the online world affords while building resilience to potential harms.
Young people today inhabit a world that has been transformed by digital technologies, effortlessly enabling connectedness through social media and access to vast quantities of information. Making sense of this hyper rich information and engaging effectively and responsibly poses a whole set of new challenges for educators as they seek to prepare young people as citizens, exercising their rights and participating effectively in the affairs of the community.
Our working definition of digital citizenship places particular emphasis on the role of education, emphasising the continuous process of lifelong learning affecting all contexts in which educational support for digital citizenship takes place, transversally and seamlessly. The notion of Digital Citizenship Education (DCE), therefore, views education as both the spark and as effect of a process of citizenship. In this section, we focus on three aspects of digital citizenship education – stakeholder roles and responsibilities; scenarios for school organisation and preparing teachers – as the basis of an implementation strategy.

Digital Citizenship
Digital Citizenship refers to the ability to engage positively, critically and competently in the digital environment, drawing on the skills of effective communication and creation, to practice forms of social participation that are respectful of human rights and dignity through the responsible use of technology.
 
A more elaborate definition of Digital Citizenship is:
 The competent and positive engagement with digital technologies (creating, working, sharing, socializing, investigating, playing, communicating and learning); participating actively and responsibly (values, skills, attitudes, knowledge) in communities (local, national, global) at all levels (political, economic, social, cultural and intercultural); being involved in a double process of lifelong learning (in formal, informal and non-formal settings) and continuously defending human dignity.
The Council of Europe’s Competences for Democratic Culture (Council of Europe, 2016) provides the starting point for this approach to digital citizenship, noting that the competences which citizens need to acquire if they are to participate effectively in a culture of democracy are not acquired automatically but instead need to be learned and practised. As such, education has a vital role to play in preparing young people to live as active citizens and helping them acquire the skills and competences needed.


Digital Citizenship Education
Digital Citizenship Education is the empowerment of children through education or the acquisition of competences for learning and active participation in digital society.
This is the knowledge, skills and understanding required  for  users  to  exercise  and  defend  their  democratic  rights  and responsibilities online, and to promote and protect human rights, democracy and the rule of law in cyberspace.
At its simplest level, it seeks to ensure that those who are not “digital natives” or do not have opportunities to become “digital citizens”, or “digizens”, are not marginalised in future society. With the development of relatively inexpensive technology, the “digital gap” is more likely to be a gap in skills required to make advanced use of the technology than access to technology per se.
In a number of countries, schools are introducing “Digital Citizenship Education” to encourage young people to develop their online proficiency, engagement and creativity as well as an awareness of the legal implications of their online activity.
Digital citizenship represents a new dimension of citizenship education that focuses on teaching students to work, live and share in digital environments in a positive way.

Why we didn't catch the Claremont killer
Reporter: Steve Pennells | Producers: Lisa Ryan, Debi Marshall
Sunday Night•31 May 2015

https://au.news.yahoo.com/why-we-didnt-catch-the-claremont-killer-28288144.html

The former head of the Western Australian Police task-force responsible for catching the notorious Claremont killer has spoken out about the investigation that never hit its mark.
It’s haunted investigators for nearly two decades. Australia’s biggest and most expensive police investigation into the Claremont murders has never been solved.
Paul Ferguson, the former head of the taskforce charged with finding the serial killer, has spoken out to try and generate new leads.
"I gave up two years of my life working on the Macro task-force. I know that the offender thinks at this stage that he is/she is/they are smart and they've got away with it," Ferguson told Sunday Night.
"That's why I'm talking to you because WA Police have chosen not to be part of this program. And, yeah, I'm fully aware of that."
After he was removed as head of Macro task-force in 1997 David Caporn was appointed but also had no luck finding the killer.
But the former head of WA’s prostitution task-force, Con Bayens, told Sunday Night that Macro’s secrecy and obsessive focus on one suspect derailed the investigation behind the scenes.

All victims of Perth's notorious Claremont serial killer, 27-year-old Ciara Glennon, 23-year-old Jane Rimmer, and 18-year-old Sarah Spiers were intelligent women who were abducted during a night out in Claremont, WA.
Their fateful nights unfolded with chilling similarity. They began with drinks at beachside Cottesloe and moved on to neighbouring Claremont. Both decided late in the evening to leave the pack and go it alone.
Ciara and Jane's bodies were both found dumped in bushland.
"The fact that the body was just dumped could mean a number of things. First and foremost it means he's arrogant... He wanted the body found," Paul Ferguson said.

The women were all similar in appearance and age and particular focus was given to taxi drivers in the hunt for the killer.
Bayens said he picked up a man in Highgate, an area notorious for prostitution, with all the hallmarks of a killer, but he was ignored by those in charge.
He stopped a man he believed to be loitering in an unmarked police car.

"The boot was lined in blue plastic. There was wire ties, a pair of pliers, some masking tape," Bayens said.

"We had one girl murdered, we had another one missing. He could have been the killer."
But Bayens said he was told by the head of the taskforce that they already had their man.
He never saw a response to the brief he prepared on the man in Highgate, despite his striking similarities to the killer profile.
"What happened in Highgate that night, what I saw that night, has haunted me for a lot of years," Bayens said.
The man Macro set its sights on was a public servant named Lance Williams.
Williams always maintained his innocence and after years of heavy scrutiny, including round-the-clock surveillance, he was simply dropped as a suspect without explanation.
As our program was going to air, WA police responded to our queries about the brief prepared by Bayens.

Read the full correspondence here.
They claim Bayens did receive a response, which he adamantly denies.
"This seems to me that the Macro task-force was a situation where police have really mucked up and now we have got a cover up, and that's the saddest part. That they never said 'we made a mistake'."
Paul Ferguson says he wants to renew the search for the killer in the hope of finding justice and peace, particularly for Sarah's family.
Unlike the other women, Sarah Spiers was never found. Her father has spent nearly 20 years following every lead he can to locate her body.
"Most parents expect their children to go to their funeral," Ferguson said.
"When you raise a child and that person is in their late teens, early 20s, and they're murdered, the family have to... come to the realisation that they've lost their child, they've outlived their child and the trauma that the child went to prior to the death."

If you can help investigators, call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.


Response from Con Bayens:

Ciara Glennon from the upmarket Claremont suburb between January 1996 and March 1997
 At a pre-trial directions hearing last week, it emerged the prosecution wanted to use the DNA or fingerprint traces to connect Mr Edwards with the series of crimes (pictured, Ciara Glennon)
Supreme Court Justice Stephen Hall noted the details brought to light during the pre-trial hearings were allegations - no evidence had been presented as of yet. 
Barrister Paul Yovich said important questions had to be answered in relation to the forensic evidence.
'The question ... is, in each case, is it the accused’s DNA ... and if so, how did it get there?' he told the court. 
'With count eight (Ms Glennon’s murder), are there other possibilities ... innocent contact, adventitious match or contamination in the collection or testing process?'
Mr Edwards is due back in court on March 20.

Claremont serial killer trial delayed by a week, a day after Bradley Edwards's shock guilty plea

The trial of the man accused of the Claremont serial killings of three young women has been delayed by a week, a day after his shock guilty plea to raping a teenage girl and attacking a young woman in her home.
The murder trial of Bradley Robert Edwards, 50, will now begin in the WA Supreme Court on November 25 after Justice Stephen Hall agreed to the delay for practical reasons.
It is now expected to take six months instead of nine after yesterday's guilty pleas to five of the eight charges he had been facing.
The trial will now focus exclusively on the three counts of murder.
Edwards is accused of murdering Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon in the upmarket Perth suburb of Claremont in the mid-1990s.
The bodies of Ms Rimmer and Ms Glennon were found in bushland following their disappearances, but Ms Spiers has never been found.
Prosecutor Carmel Barbagallo on Monday requested a delay to the start of the trial to allow time for new reports on fibre and DNA analysis to be finalised.
Justice Hall set a deadline of December 6 for this to happen.
He said the availability of the courtroom was another factor in his decision, as trial staff would not have had access to it until the night before the previously scheduled date of November 18.
Shock guilty plea
In a dramatic development on Tuesday, Edwards admitted to five other charges, including twice raping a 17-year-old girl he abducted from a park in Claremont at night and attacked at Karrakatta Cemetery. He also pleaded guilty to subjecting an 18-year-old woman to a terrifying ordeal after breaking into her Huntingdale home at night. In the Karrakatta case, which took place in February 1995, he abducted the teenager while she was walking home from Claremont, binding her hands and feet, stuffing fabric into her mouth and placing a hood over her head.
He then forced her into his car and drove her to the nearby cemetery where the two rapes took place.
The sexual assaults not only "caused bodily harm" but which were "likely to seriously and substantially degrade or humiliate" her, according to the charges Edwards admitted. The Huntingdale attack happened seven years earlier, in February 1988, when he broke into the house of an 18-year-old who lived with her parents.
The teenager was sleeping at the time and woke to find Edwards in her bedroom after he had closed her parents' bedroom door and unplugged the family's phone. He straddled the young woman as she lay on her stomach and tried to force a piece of cloth into her mouth, but she fought him off and he fled.
However, a distinctive silk kimono-style dressing gown was left behind, from which prosecutors say DNA was recovered and eventually matched to material recovered from the body of Ciara Glennon and from the cemetery rape victim.
Previous attack on hospital worker
It was not until 20 years after Ms Spiers went missing that Edwards was arrested at his Kewdale home in December 2016 in connection with the murders.
He has always maintained his plea of not guilty. The vicious attacks on the two teenagers are not Edwards's only crimes.
He has a previous conviction for attacking a woman in 1990 at Hollywood Hospital in the leafy western suburb of Shenton Park, where he was working as a Telstra technician. The social worker was attacked from behind as she sat in an office chair, with Edwards trying to stuff a piece of cloth into her mouth.
However, she kicked him and managed to break free.
Cable ties were later found in his pocket.
Edwards was convicted of common assault and sentenced to two years' probation.

Accused Claremont serial killer Bradley Edwards pleads guilty to two attacks including rape of teen girl
By Andrea Mayes and Charlotte Hamlyn -  22 Oct 2019
https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-10-21/accused-claremont-serial-killer-bradley-edwards-guilty-rape/11622382
There has been a dramatic development in the Claremont serial killer case with accused murderer Bradley Edwards pleading guilty to attacks on two women, including the rape of a teenage girl.
The incidents include an attack on a woman in the Perth suburb of Huntingdale in 1988 and a rape of a teenager at Karrakatta Cemetery in 1995.
In a barely audible voice, Edwards pleaded guilty to the five charges — including sexual assault, deprivation of liberty and unlawful detention — as they were read out in the Supreme Court.
Earlier hearings were told Edwards broke into the home of an 18-year-old Huntingdale woman while she was asleep in her bedroom.
Her parents were home at the time, but were also asleep.
The court heard Edwards straddled the woman as she lay on her stomach and tried to force a piece of fabric into her mouth, but she fought him off and he fled.
However, a distinctive silk dressing gown was left behind and that garment could play a crucial part in the trial.
Previous hearings were also told details about the Karrakatta attack, in which Edwards grabbed a 17-year-old girl from behind, pushed her to the ground and used a cord with a "pre-prepared, improvised handcuff knot" to bind her hands.
He also placed a hood over her head and bound her feet together, before carrying her to his car and driving to the cemetery.
The teenager had been walking alone through Rowe Park after a night out in Claremont when the attack happened.
Edwards has a previous conviction for attacking a woman in 1990, in what has been labelled "the Hollywood Hospital" evidence.
The court heard he was working at the hospital as a Telstra technician when he attacked a social worker as she sat in a chair.
He tried to put a piece of material in her mouth, but she kicked him and managed to break free. Cable ties were later found in his pocket.
Edwards was convicted of common assault and sentenced to two years' probation.
Edwards continues to fight murder charges
Monday morning's pre-trial hearing opened with the change of pleas by Edwards, who is also charged with murdering Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon.
The three women all disappeared from the upmarket entertainment district of Claremont between January 1996 and March 1997.
The bodies of Ms Rimmer and Ms Glennon were found in bushland, but Ms Spiers has never been found.
Edwards has continued to plead not guilty in relation to the three murder charges.
State prosecutor Carmel Barbagallo said the prosecution would be relying on fibre evidence common to the Karrakatta rape victim and both Ms Rimmer and Ms Glennon.
She said she anticipated the defence would try to argue a number of crucial items of forensic evidence, including samples taken from the bodies of the two women, had been contaminated.
But the prosecution had procured multiple witnesses, including forensic scientists and technicians, to testify that the samples had been treated appropriately were not contaminated
Murders coincided with periods of 'emotional turmoil'
Monday's hearing was held to narrow down which evidence could be admitted at trial, including the prosecution's case that emotional turmoil in Edwards's life was linked to the killings.
Ms Barbagallo said the period between 1994 and 1997 was a time of significant emotional upset and instability for Edwards.
She said the relationship with his first wife was breaking down in late 1994 and early 1995, due partly to her infidelity.
This was around the time the Karrakatta Cemetery attack took place.
Ms Barbagallo said on Australia Day in 1996, Edwards turned up without warning at his parents-in-law's house in the southern suburb of Golden Bay. His estranged wife had been staying there after moving out of the marital home some weeks before.
He asked her to attend a fireworks display with him but she refused, which Ms Barbagallo contended left him upset.
That night Sarah Spiers disappeared from Claremont.
At the time Jane Rimmer disappeared, Edwards had recently learned of his ex-wife's pregnancy to another man.
Ciara Glennon's disappearance was around the time Edwards and his ex-wife were signing documents to sell their house, Ms Barbagallo said.
Defence counsel Paul Yovich said there was no evidence Edwards had been emotionally disturbed during the time the murders were committed.
He said unlike the high-profile murder of Allison Baden Clay by her husband Gerard, where the motive was linked to the nature of the relationship between the murderer and his victim, "that's not the case here of course".
"The most that can be said is that over the course of the relevant period … there were times when the accused was happy or unhappy to an immeasurable degree," he said. Mr Yovich said the emotional upset argument was entirely hypothetical and could not be proven.
Justice Hall reserved his decision on the emotional upset evidence.
Marathon trial may be cut short Ms Barbagallo also said she expected the guilty pleas would cut short Edwards's trial by at least three months.
It was originally slated to last nine months. Despite the development, Justice Stephen Hall indicated he would still like the trial to begin as scheduled on November 18. Edwards will be sentenced for the Karrakatta and Huntingdale attacks at the conclusion of the trial.
Ms Barbagallo also raised the issue of Edwards's 2016 arrest, revealing that DNA had been collected from a Sprite bottle from which he had drunk prior to the dramatic police raid on his Kewdale home in December of that year. This evidence had been "superseded by swabs taken while the accused was in custody".
Mr Yovich said he had no issue with the legality of the arrest and would not be contesting the evidence collected from the soft drink bottle.
A large crowd of police and members of the public was present in the public gallery in the Supreme Court in Perth to hear Edwards's admissions.
The onlookers included Ms Spiers's father, Don Spiers, and Ms Glennon's father, Denis Glennon, who have been a constant presence at each of Edwards's court appearances. The hearing was delayed by more than 30 minutes because of a delay in getting Edwards to court.

Comment by the NYT.bz Investigation Team:  "Just because a man pleads guilty to a rape, does not mean he is a serial killer ...... and there is every reason for the Western Australian Government, Police and the Director of Public Prosecutions to want to convince the General Public that Bradley Robert Edwards was the sole Claremont Abductor and Serial Killer, when there are witnesses that have stated that a senior police officer and other powerful well connected people in Western Australia were involved in the Claremont Serial Abductions and Killings..... with such evidence continually ignored by the Western Australian Government, Police and the Director of Public Prosecution. It would be too shocking and disturbing for the general public and the families of the victims to even have any thought that a Western Australian Police Officer and powerful well connected people in Western Australia were involved in the Claremont Serial Abductions and Killings. There is a  concern that Bradley Robert Edwards could be murdered in prison, and make it look like a suicide, before the finish of his trial ... to make it look like he could not face to public shame of it all ...... which will leave it open to the world media to convince the general public that  Bradley Robert Edwards was the sole Claremont Abductor and Serial Killer ... it seems clear that one can assume Donald Morey, aka Matusevich was the last person to see Sarah Anne McMahon alive .(who stated she had knowledge of those who were involved in the Claremont Serial Adbuctions and Killings) .... as a good reason these people wanted Sarah Anne McMahon murdered ..... a witness said she saw a bloodied dead body, with a rope around her neck, that looked like Sarah Anne McMahon, is his room at his boss Mr Allen's home, and that evening saw Donald Morey, aka Matusevich, carrying what looked liked a dead body over his shoulder wrapped up, out of the house and said she helped clean up Donald's Morey's room at Mr Allen's home .. perhaps the trial of Bradley Robert Edwards will reveal the whole truth, if all the available evidence and witnesses are allowed to be presented at the trial ... Why wasn''t Donald Morey, aka Matusevich, 'a career criminal', charged of the murder of Sarah Anne McMahon?.. Does  Donald Morey, aka Matusevich, have too much information that powerful people would not want exposed? ".  ..

Sarah Ann McMahon 

was 20 when she disappeared after leaving work in the Perth suburb of Claremont on Wednesday, November 8, 2000. She lived with her parents Danny and Trish and younger sister Kate. Ten days later, her white Ford Meteor sedan was found in the car park of Swan Districts Hospital. A bag containing personal items was on the front seat, her empty wallet was in the boot and her mobile phone was on the ground nearby. Her mum Trish tells her story ... 
"We haven't seen or heard from Sarah since November 8, 2000, when she left for work in the morning. Apparently she received a call at work from a friend who was "suicidal" and intended to visit the mysterious caller. The police believe she's been murdered and we have all tried to accept this as a possibility, but in our hearts we know she is out there somewhere. At the time of Sarah's disappearance she was depressed ... a romance had soured, university had lost its appeal and she had a mobile phone bill for $800 she hadn't mentioned to us. Sarah felt as though she was in rough waters being tossed this way and that, and she had mentioned to a family friend that she wished she could just "go away and start again". We thought a visit to her older brother Paul and his family, who live near Melbourne, might break the cycle, but unfortunately that wasn't so. I visited Melbourne and Sydney putting up posters, giving out photos and talking to anyone who was willing to listen. Two years ago, a couple who had taken a photograph of Sarah rang to say they had distributed it at a youth seminar. The father of one of the children worked in security at Newcastle nightclubs, and he came across a young man who recognised her and confirmed her name when shown the photograph. But that was it. There have been no further sightings or news. We, Sarah's family, believe with all our hearts that our darling daughter, sister and granddaughter is out there. We will never believe otherwise. We love you, Sarah, please let us know you're all right. May the sun shine warm on your face, and until we meet again may God hold you in the palm of His hand." 
If you have any information, call Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.

Police also allege he is responsible for the abduction and murder of Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon from the upmarket Claremont suburb between January 1996 and March 1997. 
Mr Edwards was arrested in December 2016 after forensic evidence allegedly linked him to the attacks.  
At a pre-trial directions hearing last week, it emerged the prosecution wanted to use the DNA or fingerprint traces to connect Mr Edwards with the series of crimes. The Supreme Court heard while Mr Edwards denied all the allegations brought against him in a six-hour interview with police, he failed to explain certain facts. That is, he was unable to explain why traces of his DNA was found on a Kimono linked to the Huntingdale attack and also on two of his alleged victims. He also couldn't explain why his fingerprints were found on a door of another Huntingdale home following an attempted break-in, the court heard.   Supreme Court Justice Stephen Hall noted the details brought to light during the pre-trial hearings were allegations - no evidence had been presented as of yet. 
Barrister Paul Yovich said important questions had to be answered in relation to the forensic evidence.
'The question ... is, in each case, is it the accused’s DNA ... and if so, how did it get there?' he told the court. 
'With count eight (Ms Glennon’s murder), are there other possibilities ... innocent contact, adventitious match or contamination in the collection or testing process?' Mr Edwards is due back in court on March 20.

CLAREMONT SERIAL KILLINGS: MY ‘CARING’ UNCLE BRADLEY EDWARDS IS NOT A SERIAL KILLER SAYS NEPHEW
Gabrielle Knowles || The West Australian Wednesday, March 13, 2019

https://www.redfm.com.au/news/localnews/claremont-serial-killings-my-caring-uncle-bradley-edwards-is-not-a-serial-killer-says-nephew-ng-b881132440z/

The nephew of accused Claremont serial killer Bradley Robert Edwards says he believes the 50-year-old is innocent and describes him as a “caring and simple man” and not “evil”.

In a detailed social media post more than two years after the arrest of the former Telstra technician, Adam Edwards spoke out to defend him and asked the public to withhold judgment.
“He’s not a serial killer, he is a caring and simple man who doesn’t ask for anything in return, always has been and always will be,” he claimed in a post published on Facebook on Monday night.
“Everyone is very quick to judge but you don’t know him like I do, you didn’t grow up with him like I did and if he is denying all the allegations then I believe him.”
Mr Edwards is fighting accusations he attacked an 18-year-old in her Huntingdale home in 1988, raped a 17-year-old girl in Karrakatta Cemetery in 1995 and murdered Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon, who were abducted from Claremont between January 1996 and March 1997.
He was arrested in December 2016 after police allegedly identified him from forensic evidence.

Prosecutor Carmel Barbagallo told the Supreme Court during a pre-trial directions hearing last month that during a six-hour interview with police after his arrest, Mr Edwards denied all allegations but could offer no explanation why traces of his DNA had been found on two of his alleged victims and a kimono left behind during the Huntingdale attack, or why his fingerprints were found on the door of another Huntingdale home after an attempted break-in.
The post by Adam Edwards came just days after the accused killer’s brother contacted The West Australian to say the Edwards family were united in their belief that Mr Edwards was innocent of the horrific crimes.

Adam Edwards claimed people were just “being shown the parts to make him the villain”.

“When real justice happens and he’s cleared of the charges, everyone who’s rained down on him I think should apologise,” he said.
Adam Edwards, who is living in Sydney, said it had taken him two years to decide to speak out but he felt it was necessary.
“I’ve got nothing to hide nor do I have anything to lose anymore and neither does my uncle,” he said.
Adam Edwards sent a private message between him and his uncle to help verify his identity.
Several of his friends reacted to the post, some messaging their support while others highlighted prosecution claims that DNA evidence had been found to link him to the crimes.
One friend wrote: “Sorry to hear you are going through this man. I can’t side with you on this issue ... it isn’t personal and I still respect you highly. I hope whatever happens you can find some closure.”
Adam responded that it did not hurt their friendship and he just wanted to express his “view and opinion”.

Abstract
We present BrainNet which, to our knowledge, is the first multi-person non-invasive direct brain-to-brain interface for collaborative problem solving. The interface combines electroencephalography (EEG) to record brain signals and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to deliver information noninvasively to the brain. The interface allows three human subjects to collaborate and solve a task using direct brain-to-brain communication. Two of the three subjects are designated as “Senders” whose brain signals are decoded using real-time EEG data analysis. The decoding process extracts each Sender’s decision about whether to rotate a block in a Tetris-like game before it is dropped to fill a line. The Senders’ decisions are transmitted via the Internet to the brain of a third subject, the “Receiver,” who cannot see the game screen. The Senders’ decisions are delivered to the Receiver’s brain via magnetic stimulation of the occipital cortex. The Receiver integrates the information received from the two Senders and uses an EEG interface to make a decision about either turning the block or keeping it in the same orientation. A second round of the game provides an additional chance for the Senders to evaluate the Receiver’s decision and send feedback to the Receiver’s brain, and for the Receiver to rectify a possible incorrect decision made in the first round. We evaluated the performance of BrainNet in terms of (1) Group-level performance during the game, (2) True/False positive rates of subjects’ decisions, and (3) Mutual information between subjects. Five groups, each with three human subjects, successfully used BrainNet to perform the collaborative task, with an average accuracy of 81.25%. Furthermore, by varying the information reliability of the Senders by artificially injecting noise into one Sender’s signal, we investigated how the Receiver learns to integrate noisy signals in order to make a correct decision. We found that like conventional social networks, BrainNet allows Receivers to learn to trust the Sender who is more reliable, in this case, based solely on the information transmitted directly to their brains. Our results point the way to future brain-to-brain interfaces that enable cooperative problem solving by humans using a “social network” of connected brains.

Introduction
Direct brain-to-brain interfaces (BBIs) in humans1,2,3,4,5 are interfaces which combine neuroimaging and neurostimulation methods to extract and deliver information between brains, allowing direct brain-to-brain communication. A BBI extracts specific content from the neural signals of a “Sender” brain, digitizes it, and delivers it to a “Receiver” brain. Because of ethical and safety considerations, existing human BBIs rely on non-invasive technologies, typically electroencephalography (EEG), to record neural activity and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to deliver information to the brain. For example, the first human BBI demonstrated by Rao and colleagues in 20132 decoded motor intention signals using EEG in the Sender and conveyed the intention via TMS directly to the motor cortex of the Receiver to complete a visual-motor task1. Stocco and colleagues5 extended these results by showing that a Sender and a Receiver can iteratively exchange information using a BBI to identify an unknown object from a list, using a question-and-answer paradigm akin to “20 Questions.” Grau and colleagues4 proposed a related but offline non-iterative BBI.
Early interest in human BBIs came from the potential for expanding human communication and social interaction capabilities6,7,8,9,10. However, previous BBIs have lacked several key features of real-world human communication. First, the degree of interactivity has been minimal; for example, in the case of the “20 Questions” BBI5, the Sender only responds to the question the Receiver chooses, and the Receiver’s performance does not affect the Sender’s decision. Second, their interface required physical action: the Receiver touched the screen to select a question. Thus, the communication loop was completed via a motor output channel rather than a brain interface. Third, all past human BBIs have only allowed two subjects. Human communication, on the other hand, has become increasingly dominated by means such as social media that allow multiple parties to interact in a network. The potential for BBIs that allow interactions between multiple humans has previously been theorized3,11 but not demonstrated.
Here, we present BrainNet (Fig. 1), a next-generation BBI that addresses many of the limitations of past BBIs. First, BrainNet is designed to be a BBI for more than two human subjects; its current implementation allows two Senders and one Receiver to communicate, but it can be readily scaled up to include larger numbers of Senders. The Senders have the same role in observing the current state of the task and conveying their decisions to the Receiver. The Receiver has the role of integrating these independent decisions and deciding on a course of action. Second, BrainNet’s design incorporates a second round of interactions between the Senders and the Receiver, so that the action of the Receiver in the first round can be perceived by the Senders, giving them a second chance to convey (potentially corrective) decisions to the Receiver. Third, the Receiver is equipped with both TMS (to receive Senders’ decisions) and EEG (to perform an action in the task), thereby completely eliminating the need to use any physical movements to convey information. We report results from five groups, each with three human subjects (henceforth, “triad”), who successfully used BrainNet to perform a collaborative task based on a Tetris-like game.
Architecture of BrainNet. Two participants (“Sender 1” and “Sender 2”) each use a Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) based on EEG to convey information about a collaborative task (here, a Tetris-like game) directly to the brain of the third participant (“Receiver”). Information from each Sender is transmitted over the internet to the Receiver’s brain via a Computer-Brain Interface (CBI) based on TMS. After consciously processing the two inputs from the Senders, the Receiver uses a BCI based on EEG to execute an action in the task. The Senders see the result of this action on their screens (the same updated game state is shown on both screens, as indicated by the red arrow from one Sender’s screen to the other). The Senders then have another opportunity to convey to the Receiver’s brain new information to potentially rectify an incorrect choice in the first round. While our experiment only used two rounds, BrainNet allows an arbitrary number of interactions between the Senders and the Receiver as they collaborate to solve a task. BrainNet differs from a previous interface called “Brainet”12 which combines recordings from multiple monkey brains to perform a common motor task but is unidirectional and does not use stimulation to communicate information back to any of the brains.

Former inmate with accused Claremont serial killer reveals details of his time behind bar

https://www.theage.com.au/national/western-australia/former-inmate-with-accused-claremont-serial-killer-reveals-details-of-his-time-behind-bars-20190311-p513do.html?ref=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_source=rss_feed

A former prisoner who spent months behind bars with Bradley Robert Edwards has revealed details about the accused Claremont serial killer's life while on remand at Hakea Prison.

The man, who did not want to be identified, was a career criminal and one of around 20 inmates who until recently shared the protective custody unit with Mr Edwards.

He told Nine News Perth Mr Edwards was quiet and mostly kept to himself, interacting with only a few other prisoners.

He claimed Mr Edwards was assigned to cleaning the day room three times a day and paid a small amount of money that he liked to spend on extra food, heavy metal CDs and match sticks.
"He's just like another normal prisoner in there," the former prisoner said.
"One thing I noticed about him was he was always doing match work.
"He used to make these motorcycles, little mini ones."

Mr Edwards, who has pleaded not guilty to all charges against him including murdering Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon, has been in custody since his arrest at his Kewdale home in December 2016.
He was recently moved to solitary confinement at Casuarina Prison, where he is kept in lockdown 23 hours a day.

The move came after the 50-year-old was found with an ear injury inside the Hakea shower blocks, with a pencil nearby, just hours before he was due to front court last month for a pre-trial directions hearing.
The former inmate claims he was interviewed following the incident and believes Mr Edwards self-harmed.
"We get pencils from the officers ... We can buy them ... They're readily available," he said.
"If someone wanted to hurt you they'd hurt you.

"They wouldn't stab you in the ear, they'd stab you in the neck.
"From what I saw and what I know, he did it to himself."
Police are still investigating the cause of Mr Edward's injury.
The protective custody unit at Hakea Prison is home to high-profile persons on remand, prisoners, paedophiles and the targets of bikie gangs.

Nine News Perth used official documents, a lawyer and jail sources to confirm the former inmate was held there.
Mr Edwards' trial is scheduled to begin in July and is expected to take up to nine months.

Sarah Anne McMahon and her little sister  Kate McMahon just before Sarah McMahon disappeared on the 8th of November, 2000.
JANE CUNNINGHAM: 15-year-old Kate McMahon has spent the past two years without her sister Sarah. Like the families of more than 30,000 Australians who go missing every year, she faces the agony of waiting and hoping
KATE McMAHON, SARAH McMAHON'S SISTER: It happens to everyone else's family but not yours. And I think the reality of it happening to your own family, it's - it's quite a bit of a shock.
JANE CUNNINGHAM: There were no warning signs. One typically sunny November day in Perth, Sarah McMahon simply didn't come home. Suddenly, and very traumatically, that special bond between Kate and her sister was severed.
KATE: It's left a huge gap. I miss her so much. I just, um, I just think of how good friends we were just becoming then and how good friends we could be - how much good friends we could be now. 13 years with someone else in a - in a, um, house - everything was together. And now that suddenly was just cut short. My childhood, sort - sort of has been, um, marred, I guess you could say, by this whole situation. And, um, it's - it's hard. There's some days you don't want to get out of bed or go to school, but I think you have to make yourself do these things, um, for, um, yourself and just to, um, get Preoccupied.
JANE CUNNINGHAM: The year before she disappeared, Sarah's mum Trish, a school drama teacher, wrote a play about the devastated family of a missing girl. In a strange twist of fate, it was Sarah's sister Kate who played the missing girl, rehearsing the role and then comforting a family grieving from the same scenario. Do you visualise her coming home?
KATE: Yes. A lot.
JANE CUNNINGHAM: Do you?
KATE: Every day, you wake up, you think, "This could be the day. It could be the day she might come strolling through." I just think she's gonna come just wandering down the driveway, walking through the door, acting like nothing's happened. I just think that's how she'll do it.
JANE CUNNINGHAM: Kate's play does have a happy ending. The missing girl comes home. In reality, though, her turmoil continues.

Claremont serial killings: ‘Significant’ new evidence throws cloud over trial start date
Shannon Hampton and Emily Moulton
The West Australian - Wednesday, 24 April 2019

https://thewest.com.au/news/claremont-serial-killings/claremont-serial-killings-significant-new-evidence-throws-cloud-over-trial-start-date-ng-b881177802z

A “significant” piece of new evidence has come to light that could “potentially imperil” the planned start date of the Claremont serial killings trial.
At a case management hearing in the Supreme Court this morning, prosecutor Carmel Barbagallo said she had to be careful about what she said about the item as not to compromise further inquiries.
However, as Bradley Robert Edwards listened intently from the dock, she did reveal the item was a piece of clothing obtained from a Telstra worker from the 1990s.
Asked by Justice Stephen Hall if the item was linked to Mr Edwards – who worked for Telstra at the time — Ms Barbagallo said it was “utilised by technicians at that time”.

Wife of accused Claremont serial killer Bradley Edwards had affair, fell pregnant around time of deaths
By Joanna Menagh- 13 Aug 2019

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-08-13/claremont-serial-killings-bradley-edwards-trial-told-of-affair/11408504

​The judge in the Claremont serial killings trial has agreed to suppress the identity of a man who had an affair with Bradley Edwards's first wife in the 1990s, leading to the birth of a child, months before three women were allegedly murdered.

​The application to suppress the man's identity was made by prosecutors in the Supreme Court after they realised his name had been published last week in a decision by Justice Stephen Hall.
That decision ruled out certain parts of evidence prosecutors had wanted to use at Mr Edwards's nine-month trial, which is due to start in November.
Mr Edwards is accused of murdering Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon, who all disappeared from the Claremont entertainment precinct between January 1996 and March 1997.

He is also alleged to have attacked a woman in her Huntingdale home in 1988 and abducted and sexually assaulted a teenager at Karrakatta cemetery in February 1995.
The identities of Mr Edwards's two former wives had already been suppressed and prosecutor Tara Payne said the state now wanted the identity of the man who conducted the affair suppressed as well.
She said they wanted to "protect the child" who was born out of the affair and was now in their 20s, but who was "an entirely innocent party" in the case.


Pregnancy revealed weeks before Rimmer death

The state wanted to call evidence from the first wife to support an argument that Mr Edwards committed the alleged offences at times of "emotional turmoil and upset" in his life when his "relationships were in decline".
Pre-trial hearings have been told that around mid-1995, Mr Edwards's first wife started a relationship with the man, who had been living with them, and that she then moved out in early 1996.
That timing is crucial because Mr Edwards is accused of abducting and sexually assaulting a teenage girl at Karrakatta cemetery in February 1995, and then abducting and murdering Ms Spiers in January 1996.

The first wife also fell pregnant to the man, and it is claimed she told Mr Edwards in April or May 1996.
Prosecutors say that evidence is relevant because it shows that he was in a state of emotional turmoil around the time Ms Rimmer disappeared a month later in June 1996.

​The issue is to be the subject of further legal argument at a two-day hearing in October.
Ms Payne said the proposed evidence of the first wife, including the affair, was likely to be "the subject of much discussion".

Application 'inconvenient', judge says
Justice Hall queried the prosecution about why the application had been made "so late", noting that at an earlier hearing the man's name had been used "at least 35 times" and had been repeated in his judgment last week.
"It is quite frankly annoying and inconvenient to be dealing with it after it has been published," he told them.

Justice Hall said he would now amend the judgment to anonymise the man's name.

​He urged the prosecutors to give careful consideration to all of the evidence in the case because, "we don't want to be trying to close the door after the horse has bolted".
Justice Hall ruled the man could be referred to as "the former partner of Mr Edwards's first wife", saying that in order to make their reports meaningful, the media needed to be able to refer to the relationship.
Mr Edwards appeared at the hearing via video link from Casuarina Prison.
Mr Edwardswas again remanded in custody until the hearing in October.

What happened to Julie Cutler? 30 years on, the question still remains
https://www.watoday.com.au/national/western-australia/what-happened-to-julie-cutler-30-years-on-the-question-still-remains-20180423-p4zb5k.html
By Phil Hickey - May 8, 2018 


Nothing would make Ron Carey happier than for the case of Julie Cutler to be solved.
The former WA Police detective gave everything he had to try and get to the bottom of her disappearance in 1988.
Alas, Mr Carey and his team - in what was then the Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB) - were unable to provide any answers to the Cutler family.
It was disappointing to go into retirement knowing that we had not been able to establish what had happened to Julie Cutler,” Mr Carey told WAtoday.
“I would have liked to have been able to tell Julie’s father and family what had happened to his daughter, so they could have at least had closure.”

It has been 30 years since Julie Cutler went missing in Perth.

The 22-year-old was last seen leaving the Parmelia Hilton Hotel in the Perth CBD about 12.30am on June 20, 1988 after a staff function.
Two days later her car was found in the ocean at Cottesloe beach.
Apart from several Parmelia Hilton champagne flutes in the four-door Fiat, nothing else significant was found inside the vehicle.

No belongings, no clothing. No body.
The back seat of the car had washed up on the beach.
A shoulder bag Ms Cutler was known to carry has also never been found.
WAtoday can reveal a review of the case file was carried out last year by the Cold Case Homicide Squad in an attempt to unearth new clues.
But to this day no charges have been laid in connection to the case and Ms Cutler's body has never been located.
In an interview with WAtoday, Mr Carey, who spent 30 years with WA Police, reflected on the three decade old mystery.
He believes that by speaking out, there is a chance someone in the community who knows what happened will finally come forward after all these years.

Mr Carey, who rose to the rank of superintendent before retiring in 2005, first became attached to the case when he was sent to Cottesloe beach, the day Ms Cutler's car was found.

He was then a detective senior constable.
“When we received the report that a vehicle registered in Ms Cutler’s name had been found in the ocean at Cottesloe beach, I guess we expected the worst, thinking that we might find her body inside the car,” he said.
“When the vehicle was found to be empty, we began our inquiry in earnest to establish what had happened to her.”
Over the next few days Mr Carey searched the 22-year-old's home, spoke to her work colleagues and guests of the hotel and examined her car with a fine-toothed comb.
"After we recovered Julie’s vehicle...we were able to establish that one of the rear doors of her car couldn't be locked,” he said.
“So we looked at the possibility that someone may have secreted themselves in the back seat while it was parked at the hotel without her knowing and that she was forced to drive somewhere.”
Mr Carey said some time after the 22-year-old went missing, police received information which suggested she could have gone to the Burswood Casino after she left the Parmelia.
"We went there but unfortunately the CCTV footage did not extend back to the night she disappeared," he said.
“In the months following Julie’s disappearance, we spoke to numerous people in the hope we might have been able to establish what had happened to her.
“Despite our best efforts, we were not able to solve this mystery”.
The former cop believes Ms Cutler succumbed to whatever fate she met in a five-hour window between 12.30am on June 20 and daybreak that morning.

"In my view someone must have intervened between the time Julie left the Parmelia Hotel and daybreak,” he said.

“(For the car) to have found its way into the ocean, we concluded that it must have been driven off or rolled off the wall straight into the water where it must have floated momentarily, before being taken out with the motion of the waves, before sinking to the floor of the ocean.

“We were able to arrive at that conclusion because there was no sign of the vehicle at the beach when the regular swimmers arrived at daybreak to undertake their daily exercises.

“That particular night, there were strong winds and rain to the extent that the waves were lapping the retaining the wall of the Cottesloe Surf Club.

“It had to go into the water that night because the next day, the water had subsided, the tide had gone out leaving a wide gap of sand between the edge of the retaining wall and the surf.”

Mr Carey said he was convinced Ms Cutler was never in the car when it went into the water.

He said this was because nothing belonging to her was ever found on the ocean floor, or washed-up on the beach.

“Knowing that the back seat of her vehicle was able to find its way to the beach, we would have expected that something belonging to Julie would have washed up, had she been in the vehicle," he said.

The former cop said he often wondered if there was someone who could have helped police solve the case in 1988, but who chose not to come forward.
“All these years later I am still wondering if that person did exist, then maybe their relationship with the person or persons responsible for Julie’s disappearance has changed or soured to the point whereby he or she no longer feels the need to remain silent,” he said.
“That being the case, I call on those persons to do the right thing.”
Senior Sergeant Quentin Flatman, of the Cold Case Homicide Squad, said police remained committed to finding out what happened to Ms Cutler.
“The suspicious disappearance of Julie Cutler in 1988 is an open and active case at the Cold Case Homicide Squad," he said. "The WA Police Force is committed to solving this and other long-term unsolved missing persons cases."
Anyone who has information about the circumstances of Julie Cutler's disappearance can contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or www.crimestopperswa.com.au.


Reward offered
A $250,000 reward is being offered for information about Ms Cutler's disappearance, with police saying her family has been waiting in "pain and aguish".
The reward is for information that leads to the conviction of the person, or people, responsible for Ms Cutler's disappearance, as detectives launch a fresh investigation into the case.
The state government said it may also be prepared to consider recommending protecting an informant from prosecution, provided they weren't directly responsible for her disappearance.

Prostitute claims missing woman was murdered
By  Rania Spooner

http://www.watoday.com.au/wa-news/prostitute-claims-missing-woman-was-murdered-20121210-2b581.html
The woman decided to "tell the complete truth," about what she knew of events on November 8, 2000, counsel assisting the coroner Philip Urquhart said in his opening address on Monday.
In her most recent statement to police, the woman claims she was called to a house where Morey was living and was told "he's killed her," by the man who owned the house, the court heard.
"She says that when she walked into Mr Morey's bedroom she saw a naked girl on the bed and that she had a piece of robe about 1 cm think looped twice around her neck," Mr Urquhart said.
Philip Urquhart said the inquest is also expected to hear evidence from several witnesses about a bag Morey carried with him containing a reel of silver gaffer tape, rope, two knives and explicit pornographic material.

Sketch of Bradley Robert Edwards 

Bradley Robert Edwards' DNA was found on Ciara Glennon's body, the prosecution will allege

With the above photos on the internet from other mainstream news websites ...
will convince the average irish person .. before any actual evidence is present in court... that Bradley Robert Edwards was the sole person responcible for the abduction and murder of the much loved Irish/Australian girl Ciara Glennon
  Even though the headline does not actually mention the name of Bradley Robert Edwards ..   one only has to read this news article published on the world wide web by the Irish Examiner to know who the man they are talking about is....
  As Supreme Court Justice Stephen Hall rightly stated to the prosecutor Carmel Barbagallo ..   none of the accusations against Bradley Robert Edwards.....  made from the bar table under defamation protection in the court room at the last directions hearing ..  is actual evidence at this stage of the proceedings  and are only unproven allegations..... 
   yet this type of artilce implies that this is evidence ...  and the general Irish as well as others reading this articles all over the world ....  will believe the prosecution have an open and shut case against Bradley Robert Edwards.. for the abduction and murder of Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon...

The Western Australian Police Commissioner Dr Karl Joseph O'Callaghan and his Western Australian Police Service and the Task Force set up to investigate the Claremont Serial Killings have constantly for the last 18 years have not been interested in viewing the Explosive NYT.bz Investigation that would help the Western Australian Police Commissioner Dr Karl Joseph O'Callaghan and his Western Australian Police Service and the Task Force solve the Claremont Serial Killings ...#

One of the reasons why the Western Australian Police Commissioner Dr Karl Joseph O'Callaghan and his Western Australian Police Service and the Task Force are not interested any real information and investigation into the Claremont Serial Killings is because the truth of who was involved and why the Claremont Serial Killings and other rapes, attempted rapes, abductions, attempted abductions, murder, attempted murder, billion of illegal drugs sold in Western Australia, Armed robberies hits a bit too close to home and a bit to close to powerful people that are protected and are effectively above the law ... and have the green light given to them by the Western Australian Police Service to be able to commit or be involved in  any crime they want without fear of investigation and/or arrest.


 Some Comments taken from  the NYT.bz Investigation Team's explosive investigation into the lat 60 year on the policing, political, courts, government, prosecution, criminal networks, social and business networks, media, business and legal world of Perth and Western Australia....

What the Western Australian Police Commissioner Karl O'Callaghan and Stephen Brown, the Deputy Western Australian Police Commissioners and the various Assistant Western Australian Police Commissioners need to do to help to start solving Western Australia’s crime ever increasing crime woes is to sack all the Western Austrian Police Officer involved in committing serious crimes and/or protecting those who are involved in committing serious crimes such as illegal drug, importation, manufacture, growing and distribution, armed robberies, fraud and abductions, rape and murder …
The NYT.bz investigation team have for a long time offered information in their explosive investigation report on the history of crime, politics, law, policing, courts and the legal world of Perth and Western Australia 
 The NYT.bz investigation files that cover the last 60 years in Western Australia have plenty of evidence and examples of Western Australia Police Officers, including very senior police as high as the Commissioner of Police being involved in committing serious crimes and/or protecting those who are involved in committing serious crimes such as illegal drug, importation, manufacture, growing and distribution, armed robberies, fraud and abductions, rape and murder … Unfortunately there is a culture Western Australia where by Western Australian Police are not keen to police themselves when the police are committing crimes … there is a brotherhood and even sisterhood code of silence that stops one police officer in Western Australia from bringing to light criminal, wrongful and/or immoral actions committed by other Western Australian Police Officers, no matter how bad or how serious the crime and/or wrongful and/or immoral action committed by Western Australian Police Officer. A special investigation report on the running to the state of Western Australia covering, politics, law, courts ( clerical and judicial staff and employed in the courts), police, prosecution, crown law, the legal fraternity (lawyers barristers, magistrates, judges, justices), the ministry of justice, police, business, illegal drug networks, criminal networks, media, business, finance, banking, the Western Australian Public Trustee and all levels and sections of the Western Australian Government and semi-quasi government bodies and organisations etc., prepared over the last 60 years at great expense and thousands of man hours and resources …. Shows along with many others the following examples … In the report names are mentioned and the everything and everyone is exposed….. with no holes bared in exposing the whole rotten lot and everyone involved and how it all operates and who operates what and why? Without naming names in this short general comment on the Karl O'Callaghan, the Western Australian Police Commissioner’s comments in the West Australian Newspaper about how to reduce the ever increasing crime rate in Western Australia the following examples are give: 

1. A well known drug/heroin user named “Mary” was in the Bat and Ball Tavern in Rivervale, Perth, Western Australia when two of the Western Australian Police Drug Squad approached Mary and stated … “….. Mary… we know that you are a well known Heroin User and user of other illegal drugs …. if you try to score heroin or other illegal drugs in this tavern, we will have to bust you and arrest you for purchasing illegal drugs, however is you go to the Charles Hotel in North Perth, were our approved drug dealer works, then you will not be busted or arrested for buying illegal drugs …” Mary took their advice and went to the Charles Hotel in North Perth and purchased Heroin from the Western Australian Police Drug Squad 2 Drug Dealer and was not harassed, bust or arrested for purchasing heroin at the Charles Hotel in North Perth … 

2. One of the Western Australian Police Commissioners lived in the same street in City Beach, Perth, Western Australian (which an expensive up market ocean side suburb of Perth, Western Australia ..) … as a major heroin and crystal meth Methamphetamine (contracted from N-methylamphetamine) is a strong central nervous system ....Crystal meth – illicit methamphetamine hydrochloride ... and marijuana dealer in Western Australia .. and this Western Australian Police Commissioners and his family went to Sunday Barbeques with the major heroin and chystal meth and marijuana dealer in Western Australia ….. in fact this Western Australian Police Commissioner organised for this major heroin and crystal meth Methamphetamine (contracted from N-methylamphetamine) is a strong central nervous system ....Crystal meth – illicit methamphetamine hydrochloride ... and marajuana dealer in Western Australia to be released early form a 15 year jail sentence he had received for sale and supply and importation of heroin in Western Australia … so he could re-start selling illegal drugs for the crime syndicate that this Western Australian Police Commissioner for and with ….when this major heroin and crystal meth Methamphetamine (contracted from N-methylamphetamine) is a strong central nervous system ....Crystal meth – illicit methamphetamine hydrochloride ... and marijuana dealer in Western Australia was in the defendant’s dock in the District Court for his trial in 1983/84 in heroin importation, supply and selling charges …. were he ended up pleading guilty and yelling in a loud voice to the court and at the same time pointing to the Western Australian Police Drug Squad detectives that were sitting in court that had lain the charges and arrested him for importation, supply and selling heroin …. “... your Honour ….. I openly admit that my business is importing, supplying and selling heroin and other illegal drugs …. that is how I make my living ….. I openly admit that …. however I want to point out to the court that those Western Australian Drug Squad Detectives sitting in court today that arrested me for the importing, supplying and selling heroin and other illegal drugs charges are my business partners and have been for the last few years and have shared the profits with me I have made over these years … so why aren’t they charged as well with me for these criminal offences …” Of course nothing happened to the Western Australian Police officers in the Drug Squad .. the major drug dealer was handed a 15 year jail sentence and the he Western Australian Police officers in the Drug Squad continued to find other drugs dealers to partner with to sell illegal drugs in Western Australia … 

3. The was an occasion in Fremanlte were a journalist was attending a Neighbourhood Watch Meeting which was chaired by the Western Australian Police Commissioner… the journalist put his hand up and asked the Western Australian Police Commissioner if an appointment can be arranged for the journalist to have a private meeting with the Western 3 Australian Police Commissioner during the net week to provide details and information about Western Australian Police being involved in the importation, supply and selling illegal drugs in Perth and Western Australia …. the of response the Western Australian Police Commissioner was this … the Western Australian Police Commissioner ordered security to have the journalist removed from the Neighbourhood Watch Meeting and said the journalist he tried to re-enter the Neighbourhood Watch Meeting, the Western Australian Police Commissioner would order the Western Australian Police to have the journalist arrested … the journalist was given a clear message by the Western Australian Police Commissioner… that the Western Australian Police Commissioner was not at all interested in being provided information about the Western Australian Police being involved with the importation, selling and supplying illegal drugs in Perth and Western Australia and that the Western Australian Police Commissioner was very upset that the journalist even mentioned the subject of the Western Australian Police being involved with the importation, selling and supplying illegal drugs in Perth and Western Australia.. 

4. A journalist met a doctor in a Perth, who used to work for the Western Australian Police Service. The Doctor stated that is was quite common and normal for the doctor be get into the lift at Police Head Quarters at number 1 Adelaide Terrace, Perth, Western Australia on a Monday morning on the way up to the doctor’s office at the same time with Western Australian Drug Squad Detectives who had on their possession a number of large green garbage bags of marijuana which they had confiscated from drugs dealers over the weekend …. there were often 4 to 6 large green bags of marijuana they had in their possession … the doctors recounted the typical conversation between the Western Australian Police Officers …. “ the police offer that seemed to be in charge of the other police officers would say something like this .. ‘well boys …. I will take this one bag of marijuana up to be logged into the property room as the official amount of marijuana we busted the drug dealer with over the weekend … and you will take the rest of the bags of marijuana in your car and drop them off to our drug dealer to sell on the streets for us …’ …. and that is what would happen … only one green bag of marijuana was logged into the property room as the amount of marijuana officially found on the drug dealer.. and the other green bags and marijuana was taken by the Western Australian Drug Squad detectives and given to their approved drug dealer to be sold on the streets of Perth and Western Australia .. 

5. A journalist was told by a drug dealer who worked with the Western Australian Police Drug Squad that one of the methods they would organise to bring drugs into Western Australia was by getting a drug courier that worked with corrupt Western Australian Police and corrupt Federal Police to bring into Australian a quantity of illegal drugs which the drug courier would be allowed to get away with bringing them through the airport from overseas or from interstate .. . what the drug courier that worked with the corrupted Western Australian and/or Federal Police would do told to do, was told befriend an innocent young person ( male of female) on the plane or or at the airport and talk them into sharing a hotel room to save money …. the innocent traveller would have no idea that the person that they were sharing a hotel room with was carrying a quality of illegal drugs with them … then the next thing would happen would be that the West Australian Drug Squad would out of the blue early that morning raid the hotel room where the drug courier that was working in with the corrupt police was staying with the innocent traveller …. the drug courier that worked with the corrupted police would arrange to plant/hide the illegal drugs in a draw in the bathroom or under the other innocent traveller’s bed or in the other innocent travellers suitcase or bag ….. without the innocent travellers being 4 aware …. and then when the police raided their hotel room they would be have been told by the drug courier where to find the drugs and both people would be initially arrested for the importation of illegal drugs to make it look good … but int he end the real drug courier will be moved to another prison and quietly be released as being the informer who dobbed the other (actually innocent) traveller in as the drug courier, when in fact it was the drug courier that is released with no charges that was the real dug courier and the traveller that was rotting is jail with no bail and facing up to 20 years in jail for a drug importation charge .. with no one prepared to believe him or her that he or she have been set up … the aim of the exercise to to make it look like the Western Australian Drug Squad and/or the Australian Federal Police have done a wonderful job in busting drug importers with a good informer helping them … this help the police officers rise in the ranks of the police force and they end up retiring on a high police rank with am excellent police pension … the other am of this exercise is that when the drugs are found in the hotel room, only a small quantity of the illegal drugs would be logged into the Police Property section as being found in the hotel room, and the rest of the illegal drugs would be put back for sale on the streets with drug dealers working for and with the corrupt police drug squad detectives …

6. A person who knew a young man when he was around 17 years old, who used to work for him in a take way food business and tried to help the young man who came from a broke home and was a little bit into small petty crimes like breaking and entering and stealing a TV etc …. and tried to help the young man live a proper crime free life … by trying to be a sort of a father figure … the young man eventually went his own way and the person did not see the young man around the streets of Perth for around 5 years…. then after about 5 years when the young man was around 23 years old …. the person ran into the young man one day in the street and offered to buy the young man a cup of coffee …. and something to eat ….. the person asked the young man what he has been going over the last 5 years as Perth is a small town (this was in the second half of the 1980’s and first part of the 1990’s) … and had not seen the young man around for the last five years… the young man replied that he ended up with a heroin habit and robbed a bank of $50,000 to obtain the money to feed his heroin habit .. the young man stated he was finally caught by the Western Australian Police for the bank robbery and the police said to him when he was arrested for robbing the bank for $50,000 .. “.. son …. you are looking to spend up to 20 years in jail for robbing a bank with a gun .. we can help you …  but you have to help us in return …” .. the young man then asked what he had to do or what the police wanted him to do that that he would not end up spending up to 20 years in jail for the bank robbery used a gun … the answer the police gave the young man was staggering to say the least… the police put the following deal to the young man … “ ..if you are prepared to sign a false statement that says that you stole $300,000 from the bank you did actually rob …when you only actually stole $50,000 and you are prepared to sign another false statement that you also robbed three other banks that you did not rob… then we will make sure we put a good word into the judge and make sure you only end up staying in prison for no more than around 5 years ….. however is you  do not take this deal we are offering you .. we will make sure you spend around 20 years in prison and you will be around 40 years old when you get out of prison … whereas if you accept out deal .. we will make sure you are out of prison on parole by the time you are only around 23 years old … “ …. the young man took the deal and the police stuck to their word and the young man was out of prison by the time he was around 23 years old .. the reason why the police wanted the young man to sign a false statement saying he has stolen around $300,000 rather than that actual amount of $50,000 was so that the bank could claim $300,000 from their insurance company rather that only $50,000 .. this way the bank, the bank manager, and the police could share the extra $250,000 from the insurance company .. thereby effectively making the Western Australian Police Service and the Sate of Western Australia … which the police officers are acting as agents for … involved in a conspiracy to defraud the bank’s insurance company .. along with the bank, the bank manager and the police officers involved …. the reasons why the police wanted the young man to sign a further false statement that he had robbed three other banks that he did not rob was to help the police clean up their case solved records and so they could close these armed robbery files …. this would help the police officers involved rise in rank and eventually retire on a high rank with an excellent police pension which is higher the higher the rank they reach in the police force by the time they retire …. also the police had their own set of criminals and criminal networks that they worked with who specialised in armed robberies of shops sand banks including people like Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch, who the nty.bz report shows from witness statements obtained was the actual person responsible for the other three other armed bank robberies that the young man wrongly pleaded guilty for … Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch was at all times form his teenage years working with corrupt police, prison officers and other connected criminal gangs which included the Chinese Triads, doing criminal activities such as stealing luxury car, doing armed robberies, abductions and murders for various reasons including extortion and kidnapping rackets, selling body parts and making snuff and satanic movies and for satanic ritual sacrifice and swearing ceremonies for various groups and networks and to silence certain people who have broken the code of silent or who the various criminals and criminal networks are worried that they know too much and may be tempted to break the code of silence and expose one or more the  criminal network’s criminal activities .. such as the murder of Sarah Anne McMahon by Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch, with the help of Gareth Allen who would have been acting as an assistant to the professional, trained and experience killer Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch who kills without any mercy or compassion and without even the belief that what he is doing is wrong and illegal  .. to people like Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch killing a person is no different than cutting an animal’s throat in a slaughter house and is just business and is usually pleasure as well .. as Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch  seems to like killing people and seems to like have some sort of sexual activity and/or fantasy over a dead naked tied up female and male body … shown by the pornographic photos that Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch  carries around in he sinister black bag consisting of pornographic photos of dead naked tied up female and male bodies with blood on them and blood on their sexual parts .. along with the key rings he has collected for his at least seven murdered victims. Along with rope and knives and gaffer tape all tools for abduction and murder ..

7. Before three witnessed were murdered, they all made witnesses a statements that the late Len Buckeridge, billionaire building Magnate, and his silent Chinese Triad Partners in the BGC Companies and Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch along with certain Western Australian Police have been involved  …  one way or another in the Claremont Serial Killings and other abductions and murders in Western Australia

8. That the Western Australian Police have ample evidence to charge Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch and Gareth Allen of being involved with the murder of Sarah Anne McMahon on the 8th of November, 2000, after the coroner ruled that he believed that Sara Anne McMahon is likely to be deceased and dies by unlawful means… the only Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch and Gareth Allen can be saved from being charged of being involved in the murder of Sarah Anne McMahon on the 8th of November, 2000, is my proving to the family of Sarah Anne McMahon, that she is still alive

9.

Cop spills all on WA police “Welcome To Hell …. !"
“..it is easier to be shot by a Western Australian Police Officer than be eaten by a shark in Perth, Western Australia …”
Anthony DeCeglie, The Sunday Times - December 8, 2012
http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/western-australia/cop-spills-all-on-wa-police/news-story/c8d2ce9b4d208a21086da6f60119ffa7
Officer A states in his book The Crime Factory detailing his experiences as a Police Officer in Western Australia, after been invited from the London Police Force ( MET) to work in Western Australia with his wife who is also a police officer, in the chapter “Welcome to Hell”.. that is easy to be shot by a Western Australian Police Officer than eaten by a shark..” SEXIST, racist and trigger happy.
A former police officer has written a graphic account of life as a Perth cop in a new book that claims to blow the whistle on what really goes on behind the blue line.
The book, written under the pseudonym "Officer A" and called The Crime Factory, details several years the author spent in the WA Police after coming over in 2006 as part of a recruitment drive to lure British cops.
The book contains accusations of racism, brutality, bullying and binge drinking.
"Policing in Western Oz was like policing in the 1970s in the UK, but more violent, racist and sexist, and the cops had free use of guns and Tasers," it said.
Officer A, who worked in WA until early 2008, said local cops were trigger happy especially when it came to Tasers.

The chapter about his arrival in Perth is called: "Welcome to Hell".
"I'd quickly learnt that in Australia you were much more likely to be shot dead by a cop than get eaten by a shark," he said.
"A significant minority of officers tasered anybody that pissed them off, which was usually anyone with a different skin colour.
"I saw two officers attack a pair of harmless sailors. They were a bit drunk but were completely inoffensive."
He also recounts how his then wife who also came over to work in the force was sent out to execute an arrest warrant on a potentially violent criminal just moments after she told her manager she was pregnant.
The book alleges senior police made it clear the recruits were just a "doctor's quick fix". "The local cops hated us," the author says.

The book traces Officer A's career in WA, starting out at a suburban police station before winning a transfer to a secretive intelligence division as a "covert officer" rounding up informants to take out the "baddest guys in the country". He resigned in 2008 following an incident at a Perth pub, where he says a drunken officer verbally abused him,
then returned to Britain to work for the Surrey police force.
A WA Police spokesman said: "The claims in the book about policing in WA are hard to fathom and probably say more about the author than they do about WA Police.
"There is nothing in the book that gives WA Police any concern."b He said that between 2006 and 2009, 657 overseas officers were recruited in a "highly successful international recruitment campaign". Just over a quarter of those recruits have since quit. Last night, The Sunday Times spoke with the author of The Crime Factory who admitted to having a nervous breakdown after his return to the UK which he claims insiders were trying to use to discredit his book. The breakdown led to a 2010 incident in which he made a drunken phone call from his police station to a colleague claiming that he was going to shoot himself. It caused the station to be stormed by police. He was fined 500 pounds, but the court heard that during his police career he had won several awards.  "I had a breakdown," he said. "It happens. Prior to that I had an excellent service record." He said the book had been a steady seller.

Show Trial of Bradley Robert Edwards Claim by NYT.bz News Investigation Team
The please note that articles like this in the irish Examiner with head lines such as:
"Court hears Australian man who killed Irish woman 22 years ago was 'depraved individual'..."

will help to convince the general public that Bradley Robert Edwards is Guilty of being the sole the Clarement Serial Killer regardless of the evidence proved at trial.

Barrister Paul Yovich said important questions had to be answered in relation to the forensic evidence.
'The question ... is, in each case, is it the accused’s DNA ... and if so, how did it get there?' he told the court. 
'With count eight (Ms Glennon’s murder), are there other possibilities ... innocent contact, adventitious match or contamination in the collection or testing process?'
​​

The Defence,Team Acting for Bradley Edwards, the Western Australian Director of Prosecution-Police-Attorney General-Premier, Minister of Police-Government. and the Supreme Court Trial Justice Stephen Hall .... all refuse to be interested in evidence offered to show that well connected powerful people, including Western Australian Police and Freemasons, were involved in the Clarement Serial Killings, with such evidence likely to help put doubt on the guilt of Bradley Robert Edwards, as being the sole person responcible for the abduction and murder of Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon.... this leads to the claim by NYT.bz News Investigators that the arrest and trial of Bradley Robert Edwards is a show trial to satisfy the general public and victims family .... NYT.bz News Investigators also claim evidence that the disappearance and/or murder of Sarah Ann McMahon was because she was a witness to who was involved in the Claremont Serial Killings-- and the cover up of who was involved in the Claremont Serial Killings ... however, unfortunately to those involved ,,,,, Sarah Ann McMahon made a statement as to who was involved in the Clarement Serial Killings before she disappeared and/or was murdered ......  NYT.bz News Investigators are amazed that over $100 million will be spent by the Western Australian Government, on the trial of Bradley Robert Edwards .... which prosecutors say involve over 22 million exibits, statements, etc ... and will last at least nine months ... which will be the most expensive and longest criminal investigation and trial that will have taken place in Australia ... yet Bradley Robert Edward's defence team. the Western Australian prosecution, the trial judge, the police, the attorney general, the premier, the minister of police, and the premier are not in the least interested in knowing about any evidence that could put doubt on the guilt of  Bradley Robert Edwards, as being the sole person responcible for the abduction and murder of Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon, and that would point the finger at others as being involved in the abduction and murder of Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon .... and are even more so not interested in any information that would point the finger at  powerful people including Western Australian Police and Freemasons being involved in the abduction and murder of Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon,..... 

The Director of Public of Prosecutions for Western Australia and senior prosecutor of Bradley Robert Edwards, Carmel Barbagallo, has to remember and realise that it is her duty and sworn oath to at all times during the investigation, prosecution and trial of Bradley Robert Edwards for the abductions and murders of Sarah Spiers, Jame Rimmer and Ciara Glennon  and the other charges that Bradley Robert Edwards has been charged for  ...... 
... that she has to seek and serach for the truth and justice at all times... not to seek and push for a murder guilty verdict just for the sake of being the winner and obtaining a successful prosecution to further her legal career and be a hero in the general public's eyes as being the prosecutor who was able to convict the man accused by the Western Australian Police as being the Claremont Serial Killer ...

"Devils Garden ....The Darkest Side of Perth"
A new film is being produced called "Devils Garden... The Darkest Side of Perth",

which will publicly expose that Police Corruption in Western Australia ran rife from  the 1950's to 2016 and continuing, with a corrupt section of police being involved in committing crimes, in condoning criminal activity and protecting certain people from being investigated and prosecuted for crimes that they committed... there were people like the late billionaire building magnate, Len Buckeridge who were given the green light to commit what ever crimes they wanted, including murder, assault, rape fraud, robbery etc.. these people were given what they called 
"the Green Light" by Police to commit whatever crimes they wanted without fear of investigation or prosecution ...

There is also a new books coming out this year  "Living Next Door To A Psychopath" and "The Darkest Side of Perth" and a previous book called "Devil's Garden"ISBN: 978174664669 published by Random House in 2007 by  well known Queensland Crime writer Debi Marshall with an in depth investigation into the Claremont Serial Killings and various miscarriages of justice in Western Australia policing and prosecution... and the controversial series of books  entitled "The Triumph of Truth ( Who Is Watching The Watchers?) written in the 1990's which were illegal and clandestinely removed from the Western Australia Alexander Resource Reference Library in about the year 2000, which the film "Devils Garden... The Darkest Side of Perth" takes material from .....
The 1960's American TV Police and Crime Series Called Dragnet used to say at the beginning of each episode ... " These are true stories from Police and FIB files, however the true names have been changed to protect the innocent..."
The film  being produced called "Devils Garden... The Darkest Side of Perth",  is a set of true stories about  police and prosecutors in Perth, Western Australia being involved in committing crimes and covering up for criminals who have committed serious crimes, and deliberately charging people who they know have not committed the crime they have been charged for ..... which  will leave all the true names  exposed and shame the guilty ....
One of the producers of the film "Devils Garden... The Darkest Side of Perth" stated .....

 "... there seems no doubt that the Western Australian Police are not going to properly investigate and charge the real Claremont Serial Killers and those that helped carry out these most serious  crimes and covering up those responsible for such serious crimes .... so the film will in effect bring the truth to light so at least the parents, families and friends of the victims and the general public can get to know the truth.... the problem is that a proper police investigation and inquiry would lead investigators too close to their own ranks and powerful business people and politicians who were either involved or know who are involved and are prepared to help cover the truth up..."

One of the producers of the film "Devils Garden... The Darkest Side of Perth" further stated .....

".... the NYT.bz investigation report into the Claremont Serial Abductions and Killings which we are using as part of the information supporting the story presented in the our film shows clearly that the arrest and the $200 million plus cost of the prosecution of Bradley Robert Edwards as the alleged sole Claremont Serial Abductor and Killer, who, without any help or protection from others ....  is to satisfy the general public that the Claremont Serial Killer has been caught, and that there is no need to look any further for anyone involved in the Claremont Serial Abductions and Killings ..... regardless of any possible alleged involvement of Bradley Robert Edwards  in the Claremont Serial Abductions and Killings ....... which is extremely doubtful from the information we have seen so far..... they is no doubt that other more powerful  and well connected people in Perth, Western Australia ... including Western Australian Police have been involved in  the Claremont Serial Abductions and Killings and also the covering up of the the real truth behind  the Claremont Serial Abductions and Killings ...... our film will attempt to set the public record straight ..... we are expecting threats on our lived#s for producing this provocative film .... and or legal action to try and stop it been shown to the public ... however ... regardless of these expected reactions the film has to be made and the truth has to be told to the public ..... it seems that not even the solicitors and barristers representing Bradley Robert Edwards are interested in knowing the truth that will help in defending their client Bradley Robert Edwards who has been charged and accused of the Claremont Serial Abductions and Murders  "

These type of photo shopped pictures provided and created by the main stream media on their internet websites, magazines, hard copy newspapers and television outlets, help brainwash the general pubic over time, that Bradley Robert Edwards is the person solely responcible for the abductions and murders of Sarah Spiers, Jame Rimmer and Ciara Glennon, a long time before any actual alleged evidence is produced in a court of law to prove the allegations made by the police to the media and the prosecutors, to the court, in their outline of their alleged evidence they have against Bradley Robert Edwards, as being allegedly solely responcible for the abductions and murders of Sarah Spiers, Jame Rimmer and Ciara Glennon.

Ms Barbagallo said investigators were “doing what they can” and were “acutely aware” of the impending trial.

“They are doing what they can as quickly as they can, ensuring they don’t make any errors in the process,” she said.
Ms Barbagallo said the evidence had only come to light in the “last short while”. Asked by Justice Hall how, Ms Barbagallo said police were continuing to talk to people and follow lines of inquiry.
“The police are damned if they do, damned if they don’t,” she said. “They are doing what they are tasked to do.
“The potential of this evidence, we say, is quite significant.”
Defence lawyer Paul Yovich said Ms Barbagallo telephoned him about the piece of clothing on Wednesday, and received a preliminary report about the item yesterday.
He said the defence’s fibre expert estimated they would need eight to 12 weeks to consider the final report.
He said the defence fibre expert lived in the UK and may need to fly to Perth to view the item.
Asked by Justice Hall whether he had an extension of aid from Legal Aid to cover the cost, Mr Yovich “not yet” but said the organisation had been “very good about our requests”.
“I can say with complete confidence, there is no way we will be able to finalise and disclose our material before the trial date,” he said.

Justice Hall said: “That seems perfectly apparent.”
Justice Hall said as “unsatisfactory as the situation is”, he left the trial to start on July 22, saying he was “fully recognised it may be necessary” to change the date.
Mr Edwards is due back in court on June 18 and 19 for a directions and case management hearing.
Outside court, Ms Spiers’ father Don, asked if it was frustrating hearing that the trial could be delayed, said “that’s the process, that’s to be accepted.”

Edwards to be sentenced for rape, sex attack after murder trial is finished
Today's proceedings are wrapping up. 
Justice Hall has indicated Edwards will not be sentenced for the Huntingdale sex attack and Karrakatta rape until the conclusion of his murder trial. 
His trial, if it commences in mid-November as scheduled, will conclude by June 2020.

Police DNA tested disposed of Sprite bottle before arresting Edwards
It's been revealed detectives monitoring Edwards before his arrest retrieved a Sprite bottle he disposed of for DNA testing. 
Mr Yovich has told the court there will be no issues into the legality of Edwards' arrest, and that any evidence relating to the testing of the bottle was unlikely to be called. 
Edwards' DNA was taken formally shortly after his arrest. 
It was also revealed covert officers were involved in the Claremont serial killings investigation, and may be required to give evidence in closed court during trial.

Defence wants psychology report into why Edwards attacked a woman in 1990 excluded from trial
Defence lawyer Paul Yovich wants a report written by a court-ordered psychologist in 1990 - after Edwards pleaded guilty to assaulting a woman at Hollywood Hospital - to be left out of his trial. 
The report found a spike in instability in his life contributed to the assault, which the state says is a trend in his later, more serious alleged offending. 
However Edwards claimed he was unsure of his motive for the attack. 
"[Mr Edwards] says to both authors [of the report], 'I don't know why I did it'," Mr Yovich said. 
"In exploring what might have been going on, a number of things are talked about; infidelity, frustration at work, a remark the victim made that he found upsetting."
He says the summary notes of Edwards' reasonings for committing the offence were not a reliable summary of what he actually said at the time, and that neither report author had any memory of their time with Edwards.
He said the offending was "unplanned, spontaneous and that capture was inevitable", which was in contrast to the nature of his other accused offending. 
"[The Hollywood Hospital report] cannot help your honour in the logical proof of the identity of the offender in the [Claremont murder charges]," he said. 
Justice Hall has reserved his decision as to whether the emotional upset evidence will be allowed at trial.

'Marriage started breaking down weeks before Karrakatta rape': prosecutors
State prosecutor Carmel Barbagallo is now arguing why Edwards' personal circumstances and marriage turmoil are relevant to their case, and should be included at trial. 
She said his marriage was "in trouble" by New Years' Eve 1994, when his first wife was having an affair.
"This was six weeks before the attack on [Karrakatta rape victim]," she said. 
"This relationship was in trouble as early as that."
In early January 1996, his wife moves into her parent's home to decide whether to stay with Edwards or the man she is having an affair with.
Ms Barbagallo claims Edwards showed up unannounced on Australia Day 1996, and asked his wife to watch the fireworks with him. 
She said he felt rejected when she declined his invitation.
Later that night Sarah Spiers is murdered. 
Justice Hall questioned whether a rejection to attend the Australia Day fireworks would warrant a reaction of emotional turmoil.
"A refusal to go with someone to fireworks doesn't seem in itself something that would cause upset, unless it's indicative of something else, unless it's indicative of rejection as a whole," he said. 
In June 1996, his first wife tells the man she is having an affair with that they are having a baby.
That same month, Jane Rimmer is murdered.
In March 1997, when Ciara Glennon is murdered, the state says this event occurred around 10 days after Edwards' and his first wife sold their marital home, signalling the "finality" of their relationship.
Ms Barbagallo claims Edwards' murdered the three women after "infidelity or some event" occurring on each occassion with his first wife, which created a spike in emotional upset. 

12.41pm on Oct 21, 2019
Relevance of 'emotional upset' in Mr Edwards' life at time of murders being argued
The defence is now arguing what relevance Mr Edwards' personal circumstances around the time of the Claremont murder has on the state's case against him. 
Mr Edwards' marriage breakdown occurred between 1994 and 1997, which the state claims goes towards his motive to allegedly seek out and attack women he didn't know. 
"The state's argument is that the existence of a particular state of emotional upset in the accused is capable of affecting the question of whether he committed the offences," Mr Yovich said. 
Mr Yovich is arguing an assault Mr Edwards' carried out on a social worker at Hollywood Hospital in 1990, and his emotional upset at that time, was not relevant to the murder charges. 
Mr Edwards attempted to drag the social worker into a bathroom. He attacked her from behind and covered her mouth with a material, preventing her from being able to scream. She managed to get free, and security held Mr Edwards until he was arrested. 
Mr Yovich said that offence was "spontaneous", however the state argues it occurred a day after Mr Edwards discovered his girlfriend had cheated on him. 
Mr Yovich says there is no "logical connection" between Mr Edwards' hypothetical state of emotional upset and the alleged commission of these offences. 
He has referenced the case of Gerard Baden-Clay, who murdered his wife, Allison, in 2012 in Queensland, saying Baden-Clay's motive was "bound up with the nature of the relationship" with the victim.
"That's not the case here of course, because in this case there is no relationship," he said. 

12.28pm on Oct 21, 2019
The Huntingdale sex attack Edwards committed as a 19-year-old
Mr Edwards' has also today confessed to a sex attack in Huntingdale in 1988. 
The state alleges the reopening of that cold case was the major breakthrough in charging Mr Edwards' with the Claremont murders, due to an alleged DNA link discovered in 2016. 
Here are the details of that offence, which the state read aloud in February during an earlier hearing. 
The state said in February 1988 Mr Edwards entered a Huntingdale home in the middle of the night and assaulted an 18-year-old woman.
Ms Barbagallo said Mr Edwards unplugged the family's home phone and entered the teenager's room.
He sat on her back and straddled her while trying to force fabric into her mouth.
The woman struggled and Mr Edwards ran from the scene, leaving behind a silk kimono.
The kimono was later tested in December 2016, and Mr Edwards DNA profile was detected.
The state said a number of 'prowling' incidents occurred in Huntingdale, within a one kilometre radius from Mr Edwards family home at the time.
es he had an obsession for women's underwear and night gowns.
He was aged 19 at the time.

12.21pm on Oct 21, 2019
Edwards admits he 'grabbed, bound and raped' teenager in Claremont in 1995
Mr Edwards has changed his plea during today's hearing, confessing to the abduction and rape of a 17-year-old girl at Karrakatta Cemetery in 1995. Here are the state's facts in relation to that charge, which were read aloud during an earlier hearing in February.
The state said Mr Edwards abducted a 17-year-old girl as she was walking to a friend's house after a night out at Club Bay View in Claremont in 1995.
He grabbed her from behind, bound her hands together, gagged her and put a hood over her head.
He then carryied her into his car, took her to an isolated area of Karrakatta Cemetery and twice raped her.
He did not speak during the assault and the woman was left half naked in bushland.
A male's DNA sample, taken from the woman after the attack, was later found to match the accused's profile.

Defen
ce says submission of late evidence may impact accused's right to a fair trial
Mr Edwards' lawyer, Paul Yovich is now arguing whether the submission of a number of new witness statements at this late stage in the legal process enabled his client a fair trial. 
"The accused must be informed of the relevant evidence against him to be prepared for trial," he said. 
Any evidence submitted after July 30, must be approved by trial judge, Justice Stephen Hall.
Most of the new prosecution witness statements have come about from pre-trial briefings of prosecution witnesses, which led to new lines of enquiry, or existing statements being expanded.
Mr Yovich said the additions to witness statements had altered the evidence, and that the defence would not be ready with its expert responses in relation to the fibre and DNA evidence until five weeks into the trial. 
The trial will call civilian witnesses first, followed by police officers, and then expert witnesses. 
Justice Hall has reserved his decision on what new witness statements will be allowed.

Telstra-issued work trousers under spotlight as state gathers new witnesses
By Heather McNeill
There are a number of proposed new witnesses to speak to fibres relating to the blue Telstra-issued work trousers Edwards would have worn at the time of the alleged murders in 1996 and 1997. 
The defence is opposing one witness, who would give evidence on the "rarity" of the particular fabric and fibre of the trousers, from being heard at trial.
The directions hearing earlier heard detectives travelled to Melbourne recently to gather further evidence on the trouser fibres. 
The state is alleging common fibres found on the work trousers were also found on Ciara Glennon and Jane Rimmer's bodies. 

11.15am on Oct 21, 2019
State wants to call expert on DNA found under Ms Glennon's fingernails
Ms Barbagallo has foreshadowed, if the defence argues the DNA found underneath Ms Glennon's fingernails - allegedly Mr Edwards' - arrived there by passive contact, the state would like to introduce a new forensic witness to explain the difference between passive contact DNA and fingernail scrapings. 
She said Mr Edwards claimed in his police interview he wasn't in Claremont the night Ms Glennon was abducted, but that the state "has no idea" if he may say he was at trial, and therefore would like to be prepared with a new expert witness if he does.
