Woman accepted lift from man in white van

The Claremont Serial Killings trial has heard from a witness who claims she accepted a lift from a man in a white van in 1995.

The now 63-year-old told the Supreme Court she accepted the lift after leaving a wedding and walking down Stirling Highway claiming the driver told her he worked for Telstra or Telecom.

Under cross-examination from the defence she conceded that detail wasn’t included in a police statement she made in 1997.

The woman also told the court the driver told her he picked up ‘damsels in distress’.

Bradley Robert Edwards has pleaded not guilty to three counts of murder the trial continues.

Oliver Peterson spoke with WAtoday’s Heather McNeill.
