Claremont Serial Killer Breakthrough

In a breakthrough 20 years in the making, a 48-year-old man has today been charged with carrying out the murders of two women related to the Claremont Serial Killings.

Bradley Robert Edwards has been charged with the murders of Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon who along with Sarah Spiers, went missing from Claremont in 1996 and 1997.

He has also been charged with the alleged abduction of a 17-year-old girl in 1995 and the sexual assault of an 18-year-old girl during a break-in at a Huntingdale home in 1988.

He was arrested during a raid on a Kewdale home early yesterday morning.

He will front court again next month after being remanded in custody in Perth Magistrate’s Court this morning.

Premier Colin Barnett says the killings created a sense of terror in his electorate of Cottesloe in the mid 90s.

He’s also congratulated WA Police on their persistence in the case.

He, Police Minister Liza Harvey and Police Commissioner Karl O’Callaghan addressed the media today.
