Death of a beauty queen by Anrienne Jones , Sunday 25th March, 2001

The image of 20-year-old Miss Australia hopeful Anne Zappelli is forever frozen as a young figure in a white dress walking briskly down a dimly lit country highway to her death. Anna Zappelli was raped and murdered somewhere either side of midnight on September 25, 1969, in a vacant block 60 metres from the West Australian Country town of  Geralton as she walked home from the local drive-in.

Until a deathbed confession to rape and murder 19 years after the event and a second inquest 31 years on, her death remained one of Australia's greatest mysteries.
 An initial inquest failed to identify who killed her, and, despite more than 9000 interviews, three police inquiries and endless public controversy, the crime remains, to this day, unsolved. But tomorrow, after a sensational inquest into her death, Anne Zappelli's family and friends hope their nightmare will send, that, after hearing eight days evidence, Western Australian Coroner, Alastair Hope will tell the, finally, who killed Ann Zappelli.

Shirley Finn: CCC rules out examining brothel madam's murder unless allegations of police misconduct arise

By Stephanie Dalzell - 25 May 2015.


http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-05-25/shirley-finn-ccc-rules-out-examining-madam-brothels-murder/6496380

Western Australia's corruption watchdog has ruled out examining the cold case murder of brothel madam Shirley Finn unless allegations of police misconduct arise.

Ms Finn was found slumped in a car with four bullets in the back of her head at the Royal Perth Golf Club in 1975.

At the time, she was being investigated by the taxation office and had threatened to blow the whistle on the payment of kickbacks to various groups to keep her business operating.

A former police officer came forward with claims detectives threatened to kill him if he spoke up about seeing Ms Finn drinking with police on the night of her murder.

There were calls for the Corruption and Crime Commission (CCC) to conduct its own investigation into WA Police's handling of the incident, but in a statement, the watchdog's commissioner John McKechnie said the investigation of a murder was a task for police.

"The remit of the CCC relates to police misconduct, or misconduct by other public officers, either now or in the past," he said.

"Commission officers will meet with WA Police to discuss progress and whether the current investigation has identified any alleged police misconduct and/or reviewable police action.

"I have written to the Commissioner of Police asking for any information that may be relevant to our function.

"If allegations of police misconduct come to light, then we will assess them in the normal way."

SHARON MASON, 14 vanished on the 19th of February 1983 

Perth schoolgirl Sharon Mason vanished on February 19, 1983.
Sharon Mason's butchered body was found by workman under a shed behind a shop run by Arthur Greer later that year.

Greer was convicted of Sharon’s murder in 1994 and received a life sentence.
However, there is a widely held belief that Greer did not kill Sharon and the WA Innocence Project have conducted a long-running campaign to appeal his conviction but his requests for parole have continually been knocked back.
His pro bono lawyer Jonathan Davies has applied to the board to allow Greer parole in light of the new evidence, which may explain his longstanding refusal to accept responsibility for the schoolgirl’s murder.
The evidence uncovered by John Button, who was also wrongly convicted over a murder committed by serial killer Eric Edgar Cooke, 
was presented to the Innocence Project in WA and Edith Cowan University law students, as well as criminologists and psychologists.

His years as a builder meant he was able to find a discrepancy about where the plumbing was on the Mosman Park site where Ms Mason’s remains were found.
It is now suggested that the remains were above pipes that were installed after the girl’s disappearance in 1983, and were not located under a shed then belonging to Greer, which was thought to have concealed the burial spot.
Many believe Arthur Greer was wrongly convicted of the murder of Sharon Mason, 14 (above) and that her real killer remains uncaught.

Barbara Western's skeletal remains were eventually found in bush near Karragullen.
 Suspicion also fell on the Birnies, who are considered suspects in this case.
But it may well be that the Birnies are not responsible  when one considers that the Biries tended to bury their victims in a shallow grave,
thus if the Birnies were responsible for the abduction and murder of Barbara Western then, it would be likely that her skeletal remains would not be found, unless the Birnies told the police where they were and at the same time admitted responsibility of the abduction and murder of Barbara Western.

DESCRIPTION (at time):

AGE: 24 years

HEIGHT: 178cm
BUILD: Medium

EYES: Blue 

HAIR: Short brown hair

COMPLEXION: Fair

Deborah spent the holiday residing at her father’s Woodvale home where she was last seen alive by him at 9.00am on Monday the 24th of January 2000. When he returned shortly afterwards at 11.45am he noticed his defacto’s vehicle missing and assumed Deborah had borrowed the car with the intention of returning it by the afternoon so his defacto could drive to work. 

Deborah did not return that day, prompting her father and his defacto to inquire with hospitals and police in a desperate bid to find her. The search ended shortly after midnight on Tuesday the 25th of January 2000, when Deborah’s body was discovered. 

The 25th of January 2000, is a date that will never be forgotten by the family of Deborah Michelle ANDERSON.

Discovered in a burnt out motor vehicle parked outside Marant’s Deli Lunch Bar at the Middle Swan Shopping Centre, Deborah’s incinerated body was discovered after several triple 0 calls were made to FESA about the grim finding.       

Engulfed in flames, the small white 1990 Ford Laser hatchback with Deborah’s body inside triggered a full scale homicide investigation involving Midland Detectives, the Major Crime Squad, Arson Squad and the Forensic Division.    

Despite extensive inquiries by investigators, more than 14 years have gone by and the full circumstances surrounding the horrific death of Deborah Anderson are still unknown. 

Born in Perth on the 20th of August 1975, Deborah moved to the United Kingdom in 1990 to be with her mother, returning nine years later in August 1999 to re-unite with her father and commence a cooking course at the Australian School of Tourism and Hotel Management.    Scheduled to return to the course in February 2000 following the Christmas break, Deborah spent the holiday residing at her father’s Woodvale home where she was last seen alive by him at 9.00am on Monday the 24th of January 2000. When he returned shortly afterwards at 11.45am he noticed his defacto’s vehicle missing and assumed Deborah had borrowed the car with the intention of returning it by the afternoon so his defacto could drive to work. 

Deborah did not return that day, prompting her father and his defacto to inquire with hospitals and police in a desperate bid to find her. The search ended shortly after midnight on Tuesday the 25th of January 2000, when Deborah’s body was discovered. 

Inquiries into her death revealed that at 9.39am on Monday the 24th of January 2000, an amount of money was withdrawn from Deborah’s bank account from an ATM at the Woodvale shops.

Inquiries also revealed that Deborah may have driven along the Brand Highway, as far as Geraldton before returning to Perth the morning of January 25.   

Police are appealing for anyone with any information to contact Crime Stoppers – Your help could provide the missing piece of information to that may help solve this murder and provide the family with the answers they are desperately chasing.

WA police to further investigate Zappelli murder

WA police to further investigate Zappelli murder

PM Archive - Tuesday, 27 March , 2001  00:00:00

Reporter: David Weber

COMPERE: Now police in Western Australia say there'll be further investigations into the murder of beauty queen Anne Zappelli in Geraldton nearly 32 years ago.

The Police Commissioner and Senior Crown Counsel will discuss matters raised in the Coroner's report on Ms Zappelli's death which includes a scathing account of investigations into the murder. But the Zappelli family is not going to get the apology it wants from the police service for its failures over the last 30 years.

David Weber prepared this report.

UNIDENTIFIED: On Monday night, September the 22nd, there began in this drive-in cinema, the Oasis in Geraldton, a mystery which has not yet been solved.

DAVID WEBER: It's nearly 32 years down the track and the mystery still hasn't been solved. Despite four police investigations, two coronial inquests and a death-bed confession, no-one's been charged over the death of Anne Zappelli who was raped and strangled after she started walking home from a drive-in on a night in September 1969.

Thomas Craig and the late Norman Raisbeck [phonetic], who left Geraldton for Adelaide on the night of the murder, were arrested and questioned but were excluded as suspects.

Coroner Alistair Hope, who conducted the second inquest, said he couldn't identify the killer with confidence, buy he made scathing comments about the original investigation. He said Raisbeck and Craig should never have been excluded. Scientific evidence was inadequately gathered and seriously deficient. Mr Hope said that in the years since, important forensic evidence has been lost - meaning a DNA comparison is impossible.

Anne's sister, Rhonda Zappelli, says she's disgusted over the way police handled the case and the inquest.

RHONDA ZAPPELLI: The police haven't admitted to any of those criticisms, either. They've basically tried to keep this hidden for 30 years and now - even now, when it's come up in an inquest, there's still been no comment from them to us about what's actually happened, nor any acknowledgment that they've made errors, which I find absolutely appalling.

They do owe us an apology but an apology is not going to fix anything, nothing's going to be fixed by that. But just some acknowledgment that they should have done something better would be good.

DAVID WEBER: The Zappelli family had already told the court they believed Thomas Craig should be brought to trial for murder. The other man, Norman Raisbeck, died in 1988 after he made a death-bed confession implicating himself and Thomas Craig.

The Coroner has indicated the confession couldn't be used as evidence but the Deputy Police Commissioner, Bruce Brennan, has raised the possibility of another investigation on the basis of some of the evidence given to the second coronial inquest.

BRUCE BRENNAN: There are areas that we can re-examine because there's a different perspective put on some of the statements. Some people have had a change of . let's just say their memories have either improved or, in fact, become more clouded but anyway there are different emphasis put on various different issues and it's my intention to take that up with the Commissioner when he comes back next week.

DAVID WEBER: However the Deputy Commissioner says there will be no apology to the Zappelli family because the police service has done nothing wrong. The Deputy Commissioner has risen to the defence of John Porter who conducted the original investigation and went on to become WA's Police Commissioner.

BRUCE BRENNAN: It's always our intention to try and resolve these dreadful crimes. It's never our intention to botch them, to make mistakes and so on. It was never John Porter's intention to do that. He was genuinely and earnestly interested in resolving the case.

I was a detective myself back then and I do remember the exchanges of information that used to occur. Now 30 years on who knows why he made some of the decisions he made but, you know, with the benefit of hindsight they do appear to have gaps in them.

COMPERE: Western Australia's Deputy Police Commissioner, Bruce Brennan, ending David Weber's report.

Claremont serial killings: the murders that struck fear into Perth

           Liam Croy, PerthNow- December 23, 2016

                   CLAREMONT KILLINGS: Man question by cold case detectives 

                   CLUE: Taxi clue to Ciara Glennon's death 

                  LEADS: WA Police say they remain positive killings will be solved, Killer could have driven a white Holden 

    IT started just after 2am on a Saturday in January, when 18-year-old Sarah Spiers vanished outside Claremont’s Club Bay View.

   Australia Day 1996 had become the morning after and the former Iona College student was ready to leave.

   Sarah Spiers booked a taxi from a public phone to take her home to South Perth. By the time the taxi arrived eight minutes later, Sarah Spiers  was gone.

   It is nothing out of the ordinary for a taxi driver but it would later be considered the start of WA’s most high-profile murder mystery — the Claremont serial killings.

   Police know that Ms Spiers was waiting for the taxi because she was seen by two men in a car that stopped for a red light at Stirling Highway and Stirling Road.

   It was where she had asked the taxi to pick her up.

 As the men left the intersection, the driver saw in his rear-view mirror another car approach Ms Spiers. He assumed it was a taxi arriving to pick her up.


Ciara Glennon , Sarah Spiers and Jane Rimmer 



Sarah Spiers has been missing since 1996.

Ms Spiers’ failure to return home on Saturday caused concern, which built to outright panic by Monday morning.

Her father Don went to the police. Ms Spiers’ friends and relatives handed out “missing person” flyers.

A few days later, Mr Spiers joined homicide squad detectives in a public appeal for help.

Det-Insp. Paul Ferguson, now retired, said earlier this year that it felt as if she had disappeared into thin air.

More than four months passed before Perth was shaken again.

Police get missing persons reports on a regular basis but something was off about the disappearance of Jane Rimmer late on Saturday, June 9.

It was all too familiar. Like Ms Spiers, the 23-year-old had travelled from Cottesloe to Claremont to keep partying.

Like Ms Spiers, her last known movements were near Bay View Terrace.

                                                                
                                            Jane Rimmer

                                                                   Jane Rimmer at a ball at Hollywood High School. 

Ms Rimmer had parted ways with her friends to walk from Club Bay View to the Continental Hotel.

Security camera vision showed her standing outside “The Conti”, at first speaking to a broad-shouldered man, then standing alone.

It would be the last time the childcare worker was seen alive. Her family’s nightmare began when she did not attend a lunch they had organised the next day.

Her family’s nightmare began when she did not attend a lunch they had organised the next day.

Ms Rimmer’s parents Trevor and Jenny searched her Wembley flat and called her friends before reporting her missing after midnight.

Police wasted no time setting up a task force given the obvious parallels with the disappearance of Ms Spiers.

Ms Rimmer’s body was found by a woman named Tammy in bushland in Wellard in August.

The experience still haunts Tammy but speaking ahead of the 20th anniversary of the killings this year, she said she believed the killer would be found. “Every dog has its day,” she said.

Mr Ferguson said officers in the newly formed Macro task force knew they had to work fast.

“It was a very stressful time for everyone knowing that the longer an investigation runs, the more chance there was that the culprit would offend again,” he said this year.

In the months that followed, police would identify more than 700 people who had been in Claremont on the night in question.

All were shown grainy security camera stills of the broad-shouldered man seen speaking to Ms Rimmer before she went missing.

While police publicly played down speculation about a serial killer, FBI-trained specialists were brought in to help build a profile.

Breakthroughs proved elusive.

Claremont serial killings: WA Police quiz new people, request DNA samples

JOHN FLINT, PerthNow - December 27, 2014

http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/western-australia/claremont-serial-killings-wa-police-quiz-new-people-request-dna-samples/story-fnhocxo3-1227168035093

COLD case detectives investigating the Claremont serial killings are reaching out to new people, asking them to fill out a questionnaire and provide DNA.

Pensioner Noel Geoffrey Coward was interviewed on December 18 at Curtin House by two detectives from the Special Crime Squad.

                                                                        Ciara Glennon was murdered in 1997.

                                                                        

                                                                                   Jane Rimmer.

But Mr Coward is not a person of interest in the case. For many years he has been urging police to look closely at a former taxi driver he brought to their attention after the abduction and murder of Ciara Glennon in 1997.

Mr Coward is unsure why detectives wanted him to fill out the questionnaire or why they wanted his DNA.

He said one of the detectives explained it was part of “a process of elimination” and they were making the same approach to many more people whose names were on file.

He said the special crime squad had gone to some effort to locate him and arrange the interview.

WA Police would not comment on Mr Coward’s account of the interview.

Detective-Inspector Casey Prins of the special crime squad provided a brief statement to The Sunday Times. He said: “Claremont (Macro) is an ongoing investigation, hence inquiries will continue to be made.

“WA Police remain committed to resolving these and other significant offences.”

The statement is identical to one issued by Insp Prins in 2012 when the media reported on another man who was interviewed.

Mr Coward said he told the two detectives he wouldn’t fill out the questionnaire or let them have his DNA.

“Primarily (that was) because I don’t trust them,” he said. “And because they had not, in my opinion, investigated the original evidence I supplied.

“(The detective) said he could not show me (the questionnaire) unless I complied and filled it out.”

Mr Coward said the detectives then tried to convince him that the former taxi driver was “not their man” and that he had been last interviewed by police in 2011. Mr Coward is known to The Sunday Times because he brought his suspicions about the taxi driver to the newspaper in 2001.

At the time, the Macro task force, set up to investigate the killings, was focused on an introverted public servant who lived with his parents in Cottesloe.

The then prime suspect was the target of around-the-clock surveillance.

WA Police were criticised in intervening years for being too narrowly focused at the time.

Mr Coward believes police failed in the early years to properly investigate the former taxi driver, who he claims was in Claremont at the precise time Ciara Glennon went missing, and was driving his taxi on the nights the other murder victims, Sarah Spiers and Jane Rimmer, vanished from the entertainment precinct.

Mr Coward said there was other evidence he passed to the police that should have raised a flag about the man.

Claremont serial killer: Taxi clue to Ciara Glennon’s death

JOHN FLINT, PerthNow - January 3, 2015 4:00pm

MORE than 17 years after Ciara Glennon’s body was found in dense bushland 45km north of Perth,
a local man has come forward with information that puts a taxi at the scene.

The taxi had its headlights off as it turned off Pipidinny Rd, Eglinton, on to Wanneroo Rd in the pre-dawn darkness, the Two Rocks resident told The Sunday Times.
He said he had to hit his brakes to avoid hitting it.

The man’s detailed account is supported by his wife, who insists she tried to inform police
in the days after Ciara’s body was discovered in scrub off secluded Pipidinny Rd on April 3, 1997.

        I have a good memory for some things, but a lot eludes me, trust me on that! 
I do just remember something about the Dalziel St murder (must of been the flats, as the only other house was 'the sandy mans' from memory). However, some details of the other one I'm recalling are more clear to me. 
Ok, I can tell you this. The girl was found in the house at 1995 Albany Hwy Maddington, which was diagonally opposite what used to be Stokley station. I can not recall her name, however I know that on my school group someone had mentioned the fact 'so & so' had been murdered and I asked "was that in the house opposite Stokley station?" and he'd confirmed it was (this convo was some years ago now).

Jane Rimmer was 23 when she went missing in 1996 after a night out in Claremont

Jane Rimmer was 23 when she went missing in 1996 after a night out in Claremont

Ms Rimmer, 23, was abducted from Claremont in June 1996 and her body found in bushland south of Perth that August.
Students say they saw Jane Rimmer hitchhiking on Stirling Highway, Claremont near Loch Street at around 12.30 am, the description of what Jane Rimmer was wearing matched the unreleased description the police had so it seems quite certain that it was Jane Rimmer hitchhiking on Stirling Highway near Loch Street. The students had been to an event at the Claremont Yatch Club.
12.30 am would have been about the time it would have taken for Jane Rimmer to walk from Bay View Terrace to around Loch Street on Stirling Highway.

The Girl had her thumb out and we just slowed down and thought maybe we should pick her up but didn't." The conversation between the two couples in the car had been that she was a silly girl for trying to hitch in the area and they discussed whether they should pick the girl up.

"PAUL SCHRAMM: We've found further opportunities to investigate. Naturally, when you have an investigation of this size and you have something like 33,000 pieces of, or 36,000 pieces of information received in a couple of weeks, when we have gone through some of that information, we believe that there are aspects that could be further explored."

Gerard Ross was abducted while visiting Perth with his family from the country town of Newman.

Several new persons of interest have been identified in the unsolved murder of an 11-year-old schoolboy in Perth, police say.

Key points:

  • Gerard Ross was abducted and killed in 1997 while holidaying in Perth with his family
  • Police say they have new 'persons of interest' following a cold case review
  • Police want to speak with man who approached another young boy on the same road before the abduction

Gerard Ross was abducted while on a family holiday in Rockingham in 1997.

His body was found dumped in a pine plantation near Baldivis and Stakehill roads 20 kilometres away, 14 days later after several unconfirmed sightings.

WA Police have made a fresh appeal to the public to help find his killer following a cold-case review which began in 2014.

Since then the Special Crime Squad has been working through the review recommendations and opened up new lines of inquiry which police hope will lead to a breakthrough, Acting Detective Inspector Jon Munday said.

"This was a crime that shocked all West Australians," Acting Inspector Munday said.

ABC NEWS: CHARLOTTE HAMLYN

"Despite the passage of time the WA Police remain committed to resolving this matter and bringing the killer or killers to justice, as well as providing some closure for the Ross family."

Police say several new persons of interest have been identified, but would not give any information about who they were or their possible links to the case.

"We believe there are still people in the community who know what happened to Gerard," Acting Inspector Munday said.

"I would ask them that, given the passage of time or changes in circumstances or allegiances, [they] please reconsider and come forward.

"Ask yourself 'what if it was my child or what if it was my grandchild'."

Driver asked to come forward

Police have released an image of a hat worn by Gerard, that was never recovered from the scene, which they hope may have been spotted by the public, or jog someone's memory.

SUPPLIED: WA POLICE

They are also trying to identify the driver of a beige or cream sedan that reportedly approached a young boy waiting at a Kent Street bus stop near the Rockingham public library a few weeks before Gerard disappeared.

"We don't have a precise date, but in August 1997 a male driver pulled over at the bus stop and asked the 11-year-old if he wanted a lift," Acting Inspector Munday said.

"When the boy declined, the man drove away."

"The vehicle and its driver have never been identified due to the vague description provided but we are still keen to speak to that person, if only to eliminate him from the investigation."

WA Police say they have collected more than 5,000 pieces of physical evidence in the long-running investigation and have spoken to almost 1,200 witnesses.

In 1998, the WA Government offered a $100,000 reward for information about Gerard's murder, and that offer still remains in place, according to police.

Police also ruled out any link to the death of Queensland teenager Daniel Morcombe who disappeared in similar circumstances on the Sunshine Coast in 2003.

Brett Peter Cowan, who was born in Western Australia, was convicted of that murder after an eight-year investigation. Police said Cowan was in custody in Queensland at the time of Gerard's murder.

'He will never experience the joy in sharing his love'

PHOTO Gerard Ross would have turned 31 this year, his mother said.

Gerard's mother Cyrese, who now lives in Scotland, released a statement.

"Gerard would have turned 31 last November and has sadly missed out on so much life," she said.

"He will never experience the joy in sharing his love, creative talent and sense of humour with his niece or when starting his own family. "We make this appeal on behalf of Gerard, and ask you to provide any information, no matter how small or insignificant. "Please come forward as it can make the difference to Gerard's life and give him the justice he deserves."

Updated 22 June 2011.
Circumstances: Whilst walking and getting lifts to get to her new job, Hayley made a telephone call at about 10.30am on Thursday 29 July 1999. She was then given a lift by a lady to the North West Road, Badgingarra, WA. At around an hour later at 11.35AM she was sighted by a motorist on the North West Road walking towards the farm where she was going. That was the last reported sighting of Hayley. 

At the time of her disappearance Hayley was wearing, light brown hiking boots, blue denim jeans, black v-neck top, grey men's jacket with a hood, silver sunglasses and carrying a light brown backpack with the word " EQUIP" on the flap. 

There has been no trace of Hayley since the morning of 29 July 1999. The only information about what may have transpired has been from convicted prisoners who are making self serving statements about comments allegedly made by other prisoners. This is undoubtedly compounding the pain felt by Hayley's family.

The general consensus is that sometime after her disappearance Hayley died as a result of foul play and her body dumped. This is based on the unsigned statements of convicted thieves, liars and murderers and statistical results of other disappearances.  

The Dodd family are a wonderful caring family seeking nothing more than to have answers to their daughters disappearance. If you have any information or suspicions in this case please act on them as a matter of urgency.

Hayley Dodd's mum pins last hopes on cadaver dog

By Vanessa Schmitt, Mandurah Coastal Times 22/Jun/2011

 Margaret Dodd.

Exclusive: A CADAVER dog arrived in WA from Queensland on Monday to search the area around Badgingarra for missing Mandurah teenager Hayley Dodd.
Margaret Dodd said labrador Baz was her last port of call in searching for her daughter Hayley, who disappeared while hitchhiking in July 1999.

After a police investigation failed to shed light into what happened to the 17-year-old, Mrs Dodd tried Aboriginal trackers, a private detective, a geographic profiler and clairvoyants to find answers.

With all other avenues exhausted, she said everything was pinned on the cadaver dog.

“It will be 12 years since Hayley went missing on July 29, but I hope we won’t get to that date without finding her.”

Mrs Dodd said cadaver dogs were trained to track bones and could find body remains after many years.

Mrs Dodd has been planning to use the cadaver dog for a year. 

Her family raised money for airfares and accommodation, while dog handler Martin Dominick offered his services free of charge.

Missing teen's mother unaware of killer's confession
By NICOLE COX From: The Sunday Times October 09, 2010 10:00PM 

HAYLEY Dodd's heartbroken mother says she will never give up on finding out what happened to her daughter, despite an 11-year lapse since the teenager's disappearance. 

Margaret Dodd said her family had painstakingly mounted independent searches for Hayley, desperate for answers amid concerns that police had bungled the investigation.

They also called for a coronial inquest, but a date is yet to be set.

Hayley was 17 when she was last seen walking along North West Rd near Badgingarra in the WA wheatbelt on July 29, 1999, after picking up a lift while hitch-hiking.

Mrs Dodd said she was angry that police had not kept her abreast of developments in the case, including the latest man to come forward with a claim convicted killer Robin David Macartney had confessed to being involved in Hayley's disappearance.

She said police had only confirmed the development to her when she questioned them after being alerted by The Sunday Times.

"Whoever is responsible for Hayley disappearing is still out there and I still desperately want them to be caught," Mrs Dodd said. "I get annoyed. Police should be telling me everything. I shouldn't be hearing it from the media."

Macartney, who is serving a life sentence for the murder of Lalita Horsman in Geraldton in December 1999, has long been considered a suspect in Hayley's disappearance. But police have been unable to pinpoint his precise movements on the day she went missing.

Mrs Dodd said she did not believe police had done everything they could to rule Macartney out of their investigation into Hayley's disappearance.

In 2005, Mrs Dodd and her husband Ray visited Macartney four times in Casuarina Prison after the killer requested a meeting, claiming he had information about Hayley's case. During the meetings, he denied having anything to do with Hayley's disappearance but named a person whom he believed had not only killed Hayley, but was also responsible for Ms Horsman's murder.

Macartney also sent Mrs Dodd a copy of a police videotape, which showed graphic footage of the police recovery of Ms Horsman's body, to which he had controversially gained access in preparation for an appeal against his conviction.

Mrs Dodd severed contact with Macartney.

"I felt like he was playing with us, trying to give us hope but not coming through with any genuine information," she said. "I don't sit there and cry anymore. I listen to the information and then try to see if there is any truth to it ...We want to know where she is, we need to know."

WA Police declined to comment on Mrs Dodd's claims of police bungling.

POLICE are investigating Hayley breakthrough
NICOLE COX Police Reporter Sunday Times October 09, 2010  

POLICE are investigating a startling breakthrough in the 11-year hunt for missing teenager Hayley Dodd, amid claims a convicted killer confessed to his involvement in her murder. 
The Sunday Times can today reveal the Special Crime Squad has received new information about Hayley's suspected abduction and murder, one of WA's most mysterious cases.

A released prisoner has come forward claiming Robin David Macartney confessed to killing the 17-year-old.

Macartney, who is serving a life sentence for the murder of Lalita Horsman in Geraldton in December 1999, has long been considered a suspect in Hayley's disappearance, but police have been unable to pinpoint his precise movements on the day she went missing.

The released prisoner claims Macartney, who is known by his middle name David, told him he had killed Hayley because she would not have sex with him.

In an earlier conversation it is claimed Macartney told the former inmate he knew the whereabouts of Hayley's body.

In a copy of the former prisoner's statement to police, made to Det-Sgt Geoff Buck on August 27 this year and seen by The Sunday Times, the released prisoner also claims:

* He found a file of newspaper clippings about Hayley and two articles stuck on the wall of Macartney's Casuarina Prison cell while snooping when Macartney was in hospital in 2009.

* A photograph of Hayley's mother, Margaret, was uncovered in Macartney's cell with holes in her face that appeared to have been made with a pen. The word "bitch" was scawled above her name.

* He overheard Macartney discussing Hayley's disappearance with at least two other inmates at the jail, each time recounting that he had been different distances from where Hayley was last sighted on the day she disappeared.

The Sunday Times has strong information that police and prison authorities conducted at least two raids of Macartney's cell in recent weeks and that items had been seized from his living quarters.

While police said the cell raids were not related to the Hayley Dodd case, Mrs Dodd said detectives had confirmed to her they had been investigating the new claims for about two months and had searched Macartney's cell.

Mrs Dodd, who visited Macartney in jail in 2005 after he contacted her saying he had information about Hayley's disappearance, said she was only alerted to the heightened police investigation after inquiries made by The Sunday Times.

Police contacted her again on Friday asking her not to comment publicly on the latest claims.

But she described as "disturbing" the account that Macartney had news clippings of Hayley in his cell.

Hayley vanished after she hitched a ride from Dongara, where she was working as a roustabout, on July 29, 1999. She was last seen walking along North West Rd, near Badgingarra, about 200km north of Perth.

Police are convinced Hayley was abducted and murdered, though her body has never been found.

Ms Horsman, 27, was suffocated and her body dumped in the sand dunes of a Geraldton beach five months after Hayley disappeared.

The former prisoner, who was released from jail this year, claims that he spoke with Macartney on several occasions about Hayley's disappearance after a TV news report on June 28, 2009, named him as being a suspect in the case.

"I ask(ed) him, 'What happened, how come they accused you of murdering Hayley?'," the former prisoner said in a statement.

"He said, 'I was accused of it because they accused me of killing the girl in Geraldton and they thought I killed Hayley before I killed her'. He said, 'But I do know where the body is because the person who killed her told me where her body is'.

"I said, 'That can't happen. I think you should tell the police where the body is so the mother can have closure to this'. He said, 'No, that would spoil my appeal'."

In the statement, the ex-prisoner said: "It troubled me what David said to me, no one would know where the body was unless he was the murderer, that's what I thought."

He said, while Macartney confessed to knowing where Hayley's remains were, he did not detail the location.

The man claims that Macartney gave him his cell key so he could clean up before he returned from hospital where he was having treatment for bowel cancer.

"On his wall he had pictures and news items cut out of the newspaper about Hayley Dodd," the statement said. "There was only two on the wall, they were from 2009."

Inside the cell, the prisoner says he found two plastic files with newspaper clippings about Hayley's disappearance and other cases involving Dannie Wright, who was convicted for raping and murdering Chinese student Jiao Dan in Innaloo in October 2007, and American Dennis Maher, who was exonerated after serving 19 years in jail for raping three women in 1983.

"The red folder was all about Hayley," he said. "I saw some clippings had red ink around them.

"There was one picture of Margaret Dodd and it had holes in her face. It looked like the holes were made with a pen. The word 'bitch' was scribbled above her name."

The prisoner said, when he heard the prison guards coming, he returned the files to where he found them and never spoke to other prisoners about the find.

He said he told Macartney that he would give him an opportunity to go to police, but if he had not contacted them by June then he would.

"I'm telling the police this now as he didn't tell the police himself and the family needs to know and they need to get Hayley back," the statement said.

Mrs Dodd said three people had now come forward with similar stories about Macartney confessing to an involvement in Hayley's disappearance.

"One person could be lying, two perhaps collaborating but three people . . . there is no doubt Macartney is saying these things," she said.

Det-Insp Casey Prins, officer-in-charge of the Special Crime Squad, declined to comment.

A Department of Corrective Services spokesman said he was unable to comment or release information about operational or security issues regarding individual prisoners.

A $250,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the conviction of those responsible for Hayley's disappearance.

Susan Margaret Christie was reported missing on November 20, 2001 by her first husband, Ian Ure. 

Susan Margaret Christie was last seen about 10.28pm on the night of November 15 by her neighbour when a taxi dropped her off at her one-bedroom unit in Curry Street, Jolimont, after a trip to the Wembley Hotel to pick up a bottle of wine.
Giving evidence today, South Metropolitan District Superintendent Scott Higgins said police believed the 42-year-old Ms Christie was killed sometime between November 15 and 16.
Her second husband, Rory Kirk Christie, was sentenced to life imprisonment for her murder in October 2003 after a month-long trial in the WA Supreme Court which heard from over 100 witnesses.
He successfully appealed the sentence in March 2005, and had his case dismissed in a retrial by Justice John McKechnie in November 2005.
"I conclude that there is a defect in the evidence about the accused's opportunity to dispose of the body," Justice McKechnie said in his acquittal of Christie.
"Taken at its highest, the evidence cannot sustain a verdict of guilty. I therefore direct that a verdict of not guilty be recorded and a judgment of acquittal be entered."
Christie is understood to have since returned to his native Canada.
Today, Superintendent Higgins confirmed police were "not actively investigating" the case anymore and conceded "no one was likely to be charged".
"All avenues of inquiry have been exhausted in this case," he told the court.
State Coroner Alistair Hope reserved his findings into the inquest, but conceded that "on the basis of the evidence" Ms Christie was dead.
"I am prepared to find beyond reasonable doubt that (Susan Margaret Christie) is deceased," he said.
"The death was an unlawful homicide by a person or persons unknown.

 Donald Morey, 

1s a suspect in the murder of Darylyn Meridith Ugle, a prostitute who was last seen alive while soliciting for sex in March 2003

A street prostitute who narrowly survived a brutal bashing at the hands of a sexual deviant who is suspected of being involved in two unsolved suspected murders says she is still haunted by the chilling attack and believes her assailant may have killed other women.

In her first media interview since the December 2003 attack, the woman, who did not want her name published, described crawling through a swamp and scaling a 2.4m high concrete wall in a bid to escape.

"I know there are other girls who aren't as lucky as I was," the woman said.

In September 2005, career criminal Donald Victor Morey was convicted after trial of attempted murder.

In handing down a 13-year jail term, Supreme Court Justice Geoffrey Miller accepted the prosecutor's submission that there was no sexual motive to Morey's crime as he was impotent at the time.

"This woman was a random target and . . . it was predatory conduct on your part," Justice Miller said. "It was a premeditated offence, that you planned to take her to a remote area and it was not the case that you voluntarily desisted from what you were doing."

Morey's appeals were dismissed and he remains behind bars.

He is a suspect in the murder of Darylyn Meridith Ugle, a prostitute who was last seen alive while soliciting for sex in March 2003, and to the disappearance of Sarah McMahon, a 20-year-old Parkerville woman who has not been seen leaving her Claremont workplace exactly 11 years ago today. Her vehicle was found at Swan District Hospital. Morey denies involvement in both cases but admits he knew Ms McMahon.

Ms Ugle's body was found in April 2003 near Mundaring Weir - a short distance from Morey's Chidlow home and from the Helena Valley street where he took his December 2003 victim. The two prostitutes knew each other.

The murder of court registrar Corryn Rayney was one of the biggest legal cases ever heard in Perth, both in the scope of its criminal investigation, and the closeness of the media coverage.

The discovery of Corryn's body, buried head-down in a deep bush grave in Kings Park, sparked an almost two-and-a-half-year investigation which culminated in the arrest and charging of her husband, high-profile barrister Lloyd Rayney.

He was found not guilty, and is now pursuing the state of Western Australia for defamation, after a senior police officer named him the prime and only suspect years before he was charged

Two long, sad years have passed since Sinki Nikolic last heard the infectious laugh of her best friend, Iveta Mitchell.

Today marks the second anniversary of the day Mrs Mitchell, a loving mother-of-three, vanished into thin air. It's a day her friends have been dreading.

Facebook images of Iveta Mitchell

Mrs Mitchell, a 37-year-old Parmelia mum, disappeared in the early hours of May 3, 2010, after an argument with her husband, Chad Mitchell, at their Meares Avenue home.

They had fought over money he'd spent, funds meant to go towards paying off their mortgage that Mr Mitchell had used to buy drugs. According to Mr Mitchell, his wife went for a cigarette at nearby Barney Park and never came back.

This year, like the one past, Ms Nikolic and a group of Mrs Mitchell's closest friends will spend the evening at Barney Park remembering their friend.

She does not hold out hope Mrs Mitchell is alive, nor does she believe Mr Mitchell will attend the memorial, but Ms Nikolic has vowed to keep her friend’s memory burning until she knows exactly what happened that May night.

 

"To be honest, it doesn't feel like any questions have been answered. I haven't heard anything about the investigation in ages.

 In your head there are just more and more questions that keep popping up," Ms Nikolic said.

"There's no trace whatsoever of what happened to Iveta – it’s mind boggling. It’s like she just vanished into thin air.

Claremont serial killer ‘drove white Holden’: Newspaper reports

                          STAFF REPORTERS, PerthNow - December 4, 2015

http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/western-australia/claremont-serial-killer-drove-white-holden-newspaper-reports/news-story/6db6d2459747d238017280fc03b67c97

     Forensic Link: Reprts that 1995 rate linked to Ciara Glennon death            

        NEW claims that the Claremont serial killer was driving a white mid-1990s Holden Commodore VS Series 1 have emerged in The Post newspaper.

            The paper also reports the killer has links to the screen-printing industry. The new claims were reported in Friday’s edition of the newspaper.

          Last month, the suburban newspaper also reported detectives had made a forensic link between one of the serial killer's victims.
          Ciara Glennon, and the abduction and rape of a 17-year-old girl in Karrakatta Cemery in 1995.

          The first victim of the serial killer was 18-year-old secretary Sarah Spiers who disappeared in January 1996. Sarah's body has never been found.

            A few months later, in June, 1996, 23-year-old child care worker Jane Rimmer vanished after drinking at Claremont’s Continental Hotel.
            Jane Rimmer's body was found in Wellard, 35km south of Perth, in August.

                       
                               
      Jane Rimmer, the next victim.
                                     

                Sarah Spiers, who went missing in January 1996

   Ciara Glennon vanished in March 1997 and her body was found a short time later in dense bushland about 45km north of Perth.

   Friday’s edition of the Post also reported that police now believed the victim from the Karrakatta rape was tied up with washing line, not telephone wire as previously reported.

   The washing line was found to be impregnated with material used in screen printing, the paper reported.

   In addition, the newspaper said fibres found on Jane Rimmer’s body were found to match the upholstery of a Holden VS Commodore.

    A WA Police spokesman said maintaining the operational integrity of the Macro investigation was “paramount” if police were to bring the offender, or offenders, to justice.

     “Operational outcomes must be prioritised over media and public interest. We are mindful of the public interest in this matter, however we need to balance this with the  
         interests of the
investigation,” the spokesman said.

    “To protect the ongoing investigation WA Police is not in a position to make any further comment. WA Police remains committed to solving these crimes.”





Claremont serial killings: WA Police quiz new people, request DNA samples

JOHN FLINT, PerthNow - December 27, 2014

http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/western-australia/claremont-serial-killings-wa-police-quiz-new-people-request-dna-samples/story-fnhocxo3-1227168035093

COLD case detectives investigating the Claremont serial killings are reaching out to new people, asking them to fill out a questionnaire and provide DNA.

Pensioner Noel Geoffrey Coward was interviewed on December 18 at Curtin House by two detectives from the Special Crime Squad.

                                                                        Ciara Glennon was murdered in 1997.

                                                                        

                                                                                   Jane Rimmer.

But Mr Coward is not a person of interest in the case. For many years he has been urging police to look closely at a former taxi driver he brought to their attention after the abduction and murder of Ciara Glennon in 1997.

Mr Coward is unsure why detectives wanted him to fill out the questionnaire or why they wanted his DNA.

He said one of the detectives explained it was part of “a process of elimination” and they were making the same approach to many more people whose names were on file.

He said the special crime squad had gone to some effort to locate him and arrange the interview.

WA Police would not comment on Mr Coward’s account of the interview.

Detective-Inspector Casey Prins of the special crime squad provided a brief statement to The Sunday Times. He said: “Claremont (Macro) is an ongoing investigation, hence inquiries will continue to be made.

“WA Police remain committed to resolving these and other significant offences.”

The statement is identical to one issued by Insp Prins in 2012 when the media reported on another man who was interviewed.

Mr Coward said he told the two detectives he wouldn’t fill out the questionnaire or let them have his DNA.

“Primarily (that was) because I don’t trust them,” he said. “And because they had not, in my opinion, investigated the original evidence I supplied.

“(The detective) said he could not show me (the questionnaire) unless I complied and filled it out.”

Mr Coward said the detectives then tried to convince him that the former taxi driver was “not their man” and that he had been last interviewed by police in 2011. Mr Coward is known to The Sunday Times because he brought his suspicions about the taxi driver to the newspaper in 2001.

At the time, the Macro task force, set up to investigate the killings, was focused on an introverted public servant who lived with his parents in Cottesloe.

The then prime suspect was the target of around-the-clock surveillance.

WA Police were criticised in intervening years for being too narrowly focused at the time.

Mr Coward believes police failed in the early years to properly investigate the former taxi driver, who he claims was in Claremont at the precise time Ciara Glennon went missing, and was driving his taxi on the nights the other murder victims, Sarah Spiers and Jane Rimmer, vanished from the entertainment precinct.

Mr Coward said there was other evidence he passed to the police that should have raised a flag about the man.

Claremont serial killer: Taxi clue to Ciara Glennon’s death

         JOHN FLINT, PerthNow - January 3, 2015

http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/western-australia/claremont-serial-killer-taxi-clue-to-ciara-glennons-death/news-story/b80af943b3f4b839a9956cdffd1aa3ab

MORE than 17 years after Ciara Glennon’s body was found in dense bushland 45km north of Perth, a local man has come forward with information that puts a taxi at the scene.

The taxi had its headlights off as it turned off Pipidinny Rd, Eglinton, on to Wanneroo Rd in the pre-dawn darkness, the Two Rocks resident told The Sunday Times. He said he had to hit his brakes to avoid hitting it.

The man’s detailed account is supported by his wife, who insists she tried to inform police in the days after Ciara’s body was discovered in scrub off secluded Pipidinny Rd on April 3, 1997.

She claims she couldn’t get through to officers on a special hotline that was flooded with calls at the time. Her husband, Dave, who didn’t want the family’s surname published, said he’d made subsequent efforts down the years to relay his information to police, but never got a call back.

He contacted the newspaper after last weekend’s story about WA detetives reaching out to new people, in an effort to get a breakthrough in the marathon Claremont serial killings investigation. The Sunday Times has passed his contact details to the Special Crime Squad so that he can make a full statement.

The bricklayer, now 62, said about 4.30am on a Sunday morning in March 1997 he was heading south on Wanneroo Rd, from Yanchep to his work site at Nollamara, when he saw the taxi begin turning out of Pipidinny Rd in front of him.

“I saw him and he obviously saw me and stopped,” he said. “I had to brake and pull towards the side of the road. It was definitely a Ford Falcon and it was a grubby thing too. I saw the front more than I saw the side. It was definitely a taxi.

“I thought there might have been someone sitting in the back,” he added.

“I avoided him and carried on.

“I thought it was really unusual ... It was definitely unusual to have a near miss with a taxi with no lights on.”

Though the taxi was angled to turn south on Wanneroo Rd, the bricklayer said he didn’t see it behind him as he carried on down the road. “I didn’t see it again,” he said.

He said it was odd to see a taxi in Yanchep area at that time of a Sunday morning, when there was rarely any traffic around. But he said it was the fact that the taxi’s headlights were switched off on the unlit roads that made it a talking point with his wife that night.

“I had spoken to my wife about it that night, about how unusual it was to not only see a taxi come out of that road, but also without its lights on,” he said.

“Back then the only traffic you would see on a Sunday morning would be the odd crayfisherman coming up to Two Rocks.

“It has stuck in my mind so much because I’ve lived where I live now for 36 years and that was probably the first taxi I ever saw (that far up) Wanneroo Rd. You see them nowadays. But back then you just didn’t see them. You saw them when you got to Wanneroo or even when you got to Hester Ave, but not out there.”

When the news broke on April 3 that Ciara’s body had been found near a track leading off Pipidinny Rd, the bricklayer’s wife remembered her husband’s account of the strange taxi and tried to call the police hotline.

“I tried several times over the next few days but couldn’t get through,” she said. “I just gave it away in the end.”

The bricklayer said that in the intervening years he had mentioned the taxi to police officers he had built houses for and was told they would pass the information to the relevant detectives. And when his daughter became a police officer about seven years ago, he claimed she too passed information to her superiors. “No one got back to me, nobody seemed interested,” he said this week.

“When I’ve been reminded of it, it does bother me. In hindsight it’s a shame I didn’t hit him.”

He added: “I’m absolutely sure about all these facts. The only one I’m not as sure about is which Sunday, but it was around the time (Ciara went missing).”

In 1997, Pipidinny Rd was an isolated beach access road that petered out into a small track just short of the beach at Alkimos. Today, Pipidinny Rd connects with Marmion Ave.

When asked at a Sunday media conference, Assistant Commissioner of Traffic and Emergency Response Nick Anticich said he would not comment.

“Every unsolved homicide is an ongoing investigation for the WA Police,” he said.

Sarah Spiers

Jane Rimmer

Police at the site where Ciara Glennon‘s body was discovered.

KEY DATES and PLACES:

Saturday January 27, 1996: 18-year-old Sarah Spiers went missing after leaving Claremont’s Club Bay View at about 2am on the Saturday morning, following Australia Day celebrations. She called a taxi at 2.06am from a phone box near the corner of Stirling Highway and Stirling Road. She was not there when the taxi arrived at 2.14am. Sarah’s body has never been found.

Sunday June 9, 1996: Childcare worker Jane Rimmer, 23, was last seen leaving Claremont’s Continental Hotel at 00.04am after a Saturday night out with friends. She was last seen standing outside Club Bay View after she declined a lift home with friends, with whom she had been drinking. Her parents had expected their bubbly daughter for lunch that Sunday at their Wembley home.

Saturday August 3, 1996: Jane Rimmer’s naked and partly decomposed body was found in dense bushland off Woolcoot Road, Wellard, 35km south of Perth, 2km from Casuarina Prison. It had been covered lightly with leaves and twigs and was not visible from the road. The area was surrounded by farmlets and residents said the heart tea tree scrub made it a perfect place to dispose a body.

Saturday March 15, 1997: Ciara Glennon disappeared after visiting Claremont’s Continental Hotel (200m from Club Bay View). After leaving the hotel, she was last seen outside a nearby computer shop on Stirling Highway at 00.15am on the Saturday morning. She may have thought she had a better chance of getting a taxi there. It is believed she was headed to her parents’ home in Mosman Park.

Ciara, a 27-year-old lawyer, who had just got back to Perth from a year overseas and in time for her sister’s wedding, was described by many as “sensible and outgoing.” Friends thought it was improbable that she would have got in a stranger’s car. “It didn’t matter if she’d been drinking, she always kept her head screwed on,” said one friend.

Thursday April 3, 1997: The partly-clothed body of Ciara Glennon was discovered by a bushwalker. It was hidden under branches, but not buried, 40m off Pipidinny Road, 45km north of Perth, on a sandy track that was sheltered from view. The spot was about 2.5km from Wanneroo Road.

Operation Macro detectives told media they believed the controlled killer had used “planned disposal sites”. It was also reported that police believed the bodies of Ciara and Jane were dumped soon after they were abducted from the Claremont nightclub strip.

Police asked to hear from people who may have seen someone acting suspiciously in the Pipidinny Road area in the days leading up to March 15 and until her body was found.

Following Ciara’s disappearance, thousands of taxi-drivers gave saliva samples as part of police screening and more than 1000 taxis were inspected.

Opinion: Has the Claremont serial killer trail really gone cold?

JOHN FLINT, PerthNow- January 19, 2015 

http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/opinion/opinion-has-the-claremont-serial-killer-trail-really-gone-cold/news-story/bbaa9c3933d467b673ea045a54d43830

  HAS the trail really gone cold in Australia’s biggest crime investigation, the Claremont serial killings?

   WA Police maintain the case is solvable despite the significant passage of time – 19 years since the first girl, Sarah Spiers, vanished – and the millions of man-hours invested    by detectives here, by experts from overseas, and in many painstaking reviews.

   The fact there is no indication of a coronial inquiry on the horizon suggests senior police don’t think they’ve hit a brick wall. As an outsider, it’s hard to gauge just how hot, cold or luke warm the trail has gone, because Operation Macro is itself a brick wall.

Media inquiries solicit the same response: “Claremont (Macro) is an ongoing investigation, hence inquiries will continue to be made. WA Police remain committed to resolving these and other significant offences.”

I am not complaining. The need to maintain operational security is paramount, though it does provide a convenient screen to all questions on the subject. I do like the idea of the perpetrator or perpetrators not knowing how close their hunters are behind them. It might be better for them to think, almost 20 years on, that they’re never going to be caught, when, in fact, the net is closing. Wishful thinking? I pray not.

Two weeks ago, shadow attorney general John Quigley suggested it was perhaps time to pass the files to the WA Coroner for an inquest. Although it’s not the purpose of an inquest to investigate and solve crimes, they’ve triggered major breakthroughs in the past, most notably in the Daniel Morcombe investigation.

Mr Quigley said “time and time again in Australia, coronial inquests have shaken out new evidence”.

Unsurprisingly, Bruce Morcombe, Daniel’s father, is a strong advocate of inquests in such difficult cases.

WA Attorney General Michael Mischin this week responded: “The Commissioner of Police is best placed to comment on the advisability and utility of a coronial inquest – for example, whether it may impede or compromise police inquiries.”

At this stage, WA Police haven’t offered a view on whether an inquest would help or hinder.

But the feedback, at least from the Spiers family, was opposed to interfering with the work being done by the special crime squad at this time.

The families, who crave justice the most, receive updates from detectives on the direction and progress of the investigation. If they believe police are on the right path, who is anyone to disagree?

That isn’t to say that an inquest should be put off forever. No stone should be left unturned and no reputations or sensitivities are holier than solving these murders.

On the issue of sensitivities, the Taxi Industry Forum of WA reacted badly to our article two weeks ago about a suspicious taxi – with its headlights off – seen in the early hours of a morning, around the time Ciara Glennon vanished in 1997, very close to the isolated area where her body was found three weeks later.

The Taxi Industry Forum preciously complained that “many decent hardworking taxi drivers will find these new unsubstantiated revelations a further smirch on their characters and the noble service they provide the community”. It said many drivers were still hurting from being “unfairly targeted by police” at the beginning of Operation Macro.

Yet detectives uncovered many illegal taxi drivers in that period. The logical police scrutiny wasn’t a slur on all taxi drivers then, and ongoing inquiries certainly don’t reflect on those driving today.

The industry, like any employing thousands, has its rotten apples. Look no further than the cabbie convicted last year of sexually abusing five wheelchair-bound passengers.

In the Claremont cases, the reputations of police, taxi drivers, journalists or any individual, matter little next to the need to catch a serial killer.

Police reject ‘inaccurate’ reports on Claremont serial killer investigation

                     PHIL HICKEY, PerthNow - April 30, 2016 

http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/western-australia/police-reject-inaccurate-reports-on-claremont-serial-killer-investigation/news-story/eea406d4156090161cbcc5f750132587

POLICE have rejected a report they did not check vehicle registration plates captured on camera on the night Claremont serial killer victim Ciara Glennon vanished in 1997.

Media reports on Saturday claimed a secret camera set up in Claremont on the night Ciara Glennon vanished on March 14, 1997 had filmed hundreds of cars and their registration plates.

The reports suggested the vision was viewed but detectives never checked to see who owned the vehicles in the footage.

In a statement, WA Police made a rare public comment about the Claremont serial killing investigation to rebuke the claims.

“It is WA Police policy not to comment about the Macro investigation,” a police spokesman said.

“However on this occasion police would like to correct reports that numberplates captured on video in Claremont on March 14, 1997, were not checked — that is inaccurate.

“WA Police is committed to solving these crimes and has a dedicated team of detectives within the Special Crime Squad utilising the latest investigative techniques and technologies to identify the offender, or offenders.”

The inquiry, Australia’s biggest and most expensive murder investigation, has focused on the disappearance of three women in 1996 and 1997.

Sarah Spiers, 18, vanished after leaving Club Bayview in Claremont in January 1996. Her body has never been found.

Jane Rimmer, 23, disappeared after drinking at the Continental Hotel in Claremont. Her body was found in August 1996 in Wellard, south of Perth.

Ciara Glennon, 27, disappeared from the Claremont area having also visited the Continental Hotel. Her body was later discovered in bushland 45km north of Perth.


Police link forensic evidence from unsolved 1995 rape to Claremont serial killer

                        AAP and ALYESHA ANDERSON, PerthNow - October 16, 2015

http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/western-australia/police-link-dna-evidence-from-unsolved-1995-rape-to-claremont-serial-killer/news-story/892372bf2e7886119c85f1860924685a

  • SERIAL KILLER: Taxi clue to Ciara Glennon murder
  • COLD CASE: Has the Claremont trail really gone cold
  • CRIME THAT ROCKED PERTH: Claremont murders

A DETECTIVE who worked on the Claremont serial killer case says a rape at Karrakata Cemetery one year before the first murder could be “incredibly important” to the investigation.

The suburban Post newspaper has reported that detectives believe the killer of three women last seen in Claremont also abducted a 17-year-old girl from Gugeri Street in 1995 then raped her at the nearby cemetery.

The newspaper speculates the rapist is the same man who murdered Ciara Glennon, a 27-year-old lawyer, in March 1997.

The first victim was 18-year-old secretary Sarah Spiers, who disappeared in January 1996.

A few months later, 23-year-old childcare worker Jane Rimmer vanished.

The bodies of Ms Rimmer and Ms Glennon were found, but Ms Spiers has never been seen again and is presumed dead.

All three victims had been at hotels in the affluent western suburb.

Terry Dobson, who is now a lawyer, said the Karrakatta rape was “looked at very early on” after a local detective deemed it worthy of follow-up.

               
               
               
             Sarah Spiers disappeared in Perth in early 1996.

     Mr Dobson said the sexual assault could be “incredibly important” to the murder inquiry, which now involves better investigative techniques and forensic advances.

     “There were a number of officers who thought Karrakatta was the start of it,” Mr Dobson told 6PR.

     Mr Dobson said he would not be surprised if police are “throwing the kitchen sink at this”.

     “If you look at the way the three murders were committed, you’ve got a killing machine.

      “They won’t rest until they solve this. They’ll never stop trying to solve this one.”
     Mr Dobson said the killer may be from overseas and would not have stopped offending if still alive.

     “He’s either dead or in another jurisdiction,” he said.

     Acting assistant commissioner for state crime Pryce Scanlan told reporters on Friday that media reports on an active investigation could seriously jeopardise it and
     negatively affect prosecutions. “Maintaining the operational integrity of this investigation is paramount if we are to bring the offender or offenders to justice,” Mr Scanlan said.

   “Therefore, the operational outcomes must be prioritised over media and public interest.

  Earlier today, PerthNow contacted police for comment but a spokesman said the Macro Taskforce would not comment for “operational reasons” on the investigation.

    Acting Assistant Commissioner for State Crime, Pryce Scanlan, read a statement to a packed media conference, saying: “Maintaining the operational integrity of this
    investigation is paramount if we are to bring the offender, or offenders, to justice, therefore operational outcomes must be prioritised over media and public interest.”

         On January 27, 1996, 18-year-old Sarah Spiers went missing after leaving Claremont’s Club Bay View at about 2am on the Saturday morning,
       following Australia Day celebrations.

      Sarah Spiers called a taxi at 2.06am from a phone box near the corner of Stirling Highway and Stirling Road.

     Sara was not  there when the taxi arrived at 2.14am. Sarah’s body has never been found.


Terry Dobson, a former detective who worked on the case, said the Karrakatta rape was “looked at very early on” after a local detective deemed it worthy of follow-up.

  On Sunday June 9, 1996, childcare worker Jane Rimmer, 23, was last seen leaving Claremont’s Continental Hotel at 12.04am after a Saturday night out with friends.

   She was last seen standing outside Club Bay View after she declined a lift home with friends, with whom she had been drinking.

On August her naked and partly decomposed body was found in dense bushland off Woolcoot Road, Wellard, 35km south of Perth, 2km from Casuarina Prison.

Earlier this year, The Sunday Times revealed 17-years after Ciara Glennon’s body was found in dense bushland 45km north of Perth, a local man came forward with information that put a taxi at the scene.

The taxi had its headlights off as it turned off Pipidinny Road, Eglinton, onto Wanneroo Road in the pre-dawn darkness, the Two Rocks resident told The Sunday Times. He said he had to hit his brakes to avoid hitting it.

The man’s detailed account is supported by his wife, who insists she tried to inform police in the days after Ciara’s body was discovered in scrub off secluded Pipidinny Road on April 3, 1997.

TIMELINE

February 1995: A man abducted a woman from a Claremont Street late at night before sexually assaulting her in Karrakatta Cemetery.

January 1996: 18-year-old Sarah Spiers was abducted after leaving Club Bayview in Claremont. Sarah’s body has never been found.

June 1996: Jane Rimmer, 23, disappeared after drinking at the Continental Hotel in Claremont. Her body was found in August 1996 in bush at Wellard, south of Perth.

March 1997: 27-year-old lawyer Ciara Glennon disappeared from the Claremont area, having also visited the Continental Hotel. Her body was discovered in dense bushland 45km north of Perth.



Claremont murders: Sarah Spiers’ family still confident serial killer will be caught

PHIL HICKEY, Police Reporter, PerthNow January 22, 2016

DECEMBER 2015 Repirts Claremont serial killer 'drove while Holden: 

OCTOBER 2015: Police llink forensic evidence to 1995 rate care in Calremont killer

JANUARY 2015: Claremont taxi clue to Ciara Gennon's death 

THE parents of Claremont serial killer victim Sarah Spiers say time has not healed their loss but they remain confident the case can still be solved as the 20-year mark of their daughter’s disappearance nears.

Sarah Spiers, 18, vanished in Claremont in the early hours of January 27, 1996.

She is believed to be the Claremont serial killer’s first murder victim, which subsequently led to Australia’s biggest and most expensive murder inquiry, Operation Macro.

Two other women, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon, disappeared from Claremont soon after.

Their bodies were found in 1996 and 1997. Ms Spiers has never been located.

In a statement released to the media on Friday, Don and Carol Spiers said 20 years on they were still suffering.

“Time has not healed our loss, even after 20 years,” they said.

“Words are inadequate to describe our personal loss and heartbreak.

“It’s hard not to wonder what Sarah’s life and ours could have been, had she not been taken from us.

“She was so full of life and had a great love of family.

“We want to thank our family and friends for their ongoing support.

“We also want to thank the police for their support and for keeping us well informed about the investigation.

“We retain confidence in the Macro investigation team to solve this case.”

POLICE STILL DETERMINED TO SOLVE CASE



1997: Flashback to the police manhunt nearly 20 years ago.

The statement comes as senior police reveal a recent restructure to its state crime portfolio had led to “extra resources” for the Special Crime Squad, the police unit tasked with solving the case.

Assistant Commissioner Michelle Fyfe said the restructure last year had resulted in more detectives being assigned to the Macro investigation.

“WA Police is committed to solving these crimes and the Macro investigation remains open and active,” Ast-Com Fyfe said.

“The Macro team is applying fresh eyes, modern investigative techniques and the latest advancements in forensic technology to identify the offender or offenders.

“They are committed to pursuing justice for the victims and to providing their families with some answers.”

Ast-Com Fyfe said despite the fact the case file was 20 years-old, the murders could still be solved.

“WA Police is optimistic these crimes can still be solved despite the passage of time,” she said, adding: “For obvious reasons, WA Police will not comment on current lines of inquiry. A major investigation such as this cannot be an ‘open book’ and operational outcomes must be prioritised over media interest.

“Maintaining the operational integrity of this investigation is paramount if we are to bring the offender(s) to justice.”

                                          THE THREE VICTIMS

              
              Victims: Ciara Glennon, Sarah Spiers and Jane Rimmer who fell victim to the Claremont serial killer from January 1996 to March 1997.

        SARAH SPIERS

         Went to the Club Bay View nightclub on January 26, 1996.

         Sarah left the club in the early hours of the following day and telephoned Swan Taxis from a phone box on Stirling Road just after 2am.

         She waited at the intersection of Stirling Road and Stirling Highway for the taxi to arrive.

          When the taxi arrived at 2.09am, she was nowhere to be seen.

        JANE RIMMER

        The 23-year-old vanished from Claremont in the early hours of June 9, 1996.

        Her body was later found in bushland in Wellard.

     Aged 27, she was last seen on March 15, 1997.

     The following month, 18 days after being reported missing, her body was found in bushland off Pipidinny Road in Eglington.

      A $250,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of the person or persons responsible for the murders still stands.

        Anyone with information can phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

 

   Cold case probe linked to Claremont serial killings

         The investigation is Australia’s longest running and most expensive.

            Advances in forensic technology, particularly DNA profiling, have been the best hope of solving the crimes.

        Hope is all that is left for the parents of the three young women.

      In a statement released in January, Mr and Mrs Spiers said time did not heal all wounds.

     “Words are inadequate to describe our personal loss and heartbreak,” they said.

    “It’s hard not to wonder what Sarah’s life — and ours — could have been had she not been taken from us.

    “She was so full of life and had a great love of family.”

     In spite of their grief, Mr and Mrs Spiers remained confident that police would one day catch their daughter’s killer.

Experts play down expectations in serial killer probe


PM - Tuesday, 9 November , 2004  18:30:48

Reporter: David Weber

MARK COLVIN: The panel of experts reviewing the case of a possible serial killer in Perth has warned that there may not be any breakthrough in the investigation.

Crime experts from the UK, the US, and interstate have come together to conduct a wide-ranging review of what's become known as the case of the "Claremont serial killer".

Three young women disappeared after going to nightspots in the Perth suburb of Claremont in 1996 and 1997. Two were found dead, the third's never been seen again.

No one's ever been charged, despite an eight-year investigation.

The experts appeared before the media today for the first time, and played down expectations.

As David Weber reports. 

DAVID WEBER: The panel has now started its review into the disappearance of Sarah Spiers and the murders of Ciara Glennon and Jane Rimmer.

Those on the panel can boast decades of experience in murder investigations around the world – forensic experts from the UK, a criminal profiler from the US and a detective from New South Wales.

Superintendent Paul Schramm is heading the inquiry. He led the investigation into the Snowtown murders. Superintendent Schramm says that sometimes a fresh pair of eyes is the greatest advantage.

PAUL SCHRAMM: None of us have any in-depth knowledge of it, and I think that's important, and that will unfold in a structured way over the next several weeks, and then we will set our own direction.

DAVID WEBER: Superintendent Schramm says the panel is not in Perth to correct the work of previous investigators or police. But he's also sought to lower expectations.

PAUL SCHRAMM: I think managing or being cognisant of expectations is a very important issue. As I said several times, we are under no misapprehension of the enormity of this task. Reviews in themselves don't necessarily mean that we will be successful. However, that's one of the exciting aspects of criminal investigation that you never know that the next caller that you go around may provide that breakthrough.

DAVID WEBER: Detective Inspector Russell Oxford is from the New South Wales Police Service. He's been a homicide investigator for 15 years. He's also worked with the FBI in the US.

He says dealing with expectations is one of the biggest challenges.

RUSSELL OXFORD: The perception that we're here to try and solve this, and on a personal point of view, that the challenge to us is the expectation of the family, is are we going to get closure – and we may not. That's certainly a challenge to us. First and foremost to me is the expectation that we're here, we're going to ride in on a white horse and then it's finished. And that's going to be difficult for us.

DAVID WEBER: David Barclay is the head of Physical Evidence at the National Crime and Operations Faculty in the UK. He'll work with forensic scientist Malcolm Boots from the same faculty. 

Mr Barclay says he's done more than two hundred reviews like this one and has a high success rate.

DAVID BARCLAY: We try and work together with physical evidence, pathology, finger marks – all as part of physical evidence, with psychological profilers and crime analysts. So that would be our normal pattern of working and we work to a senior investigator, and that's Paul in this case. 

So we're used to doing that and what we will be doing, Malcolm and myself, is going through every line of every report that's ever been written about this case to do with the physical evidence and then trying to set that in context with the lines of inquiry.

DAVID WEBER: Joel Kohout is from the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension in Minnesota. She's an expert in sexual homicide and in criminal profiling. Ms Kohout says she knows very little about the case.

JOEL KOHOUT: Initially I think that's a good way to look at it, to formulate some opinions. In this case, they've already been some profiles done, so I'll be looking at those to see what conclusions other people have come to. 

And I think it's important to point out that profiling is not an exact science. It's merely an investigative tool. Sometimes it's very useful, sometimes not so useful. I think we'll be proceeding more as an investigative body and that'll be one facet of this.

DAVID WEBER: While the review has been set down for four weeks, those on the panel can ask for more time if they think they need it.

MARK COLVIN: David Weber.

WA police to further investigate Zappelli murder

WA police to further investigate Zappelli murder

PM Archive - Tuesday, 27 March , 2001  00:00:00

Reporter: David Weber

COMPERE: Now police in Western Australia say there'll be further investigations into the murder of beauty queen Anne Zappelli in Geraldton nearly 32 years ago.

The Police Commissioner and Senior Crown Counsel will discuss matters raised in the Coroner's report on Ms Zappelli's death which includes a scathing account of investigations into the murder. But the Zappelli family is not going to get the apology it wants from the police service for its failures over the last 30 years.

David Weber prepared this report.

UNIDENTIFIED: On Monday night, September the 22nd, there began in this drive-in cinema, the Oasis in Geraldton, a mystery which has not yet been solved.

DAVID WEBER: It's nearly 32 years down the track and the mystery still hasn't been solved. Despite four police investigations, two coronial inquests and a death-bed confession, no-one's been charged over the death of Anne Zappelli who was raped and strangled after she started walking home from a drive-in on a night in September 1969.

Thomas Craig and the late Norman Raisbeck [phonetic], who left Geraldton for Adelaide on the night of the murder, were arrested and questioned but were excluded as suspects.

Coroner Alistair Hope, who conducted the second inquest, said he couldn't identify the killer with confidence, buy he made scathing comments about the original investigation. He said Raisbeck and Craig should never have been excluded. Scientific evidence was inadequately gathered and seriously deficient. Mr Hope said that in the years since, important forensic evidence has been lost - meaning a DNA comparison is impossible.

Anne's sister, Rhonda Zappelli, says she's disgusted over the way police handled the case and the inquest.

RHONDA ZAPPELLI: The police haven't admitted to any of those criticisms, either. They've basically tried to keep this hidden for 30 years and now - even now, when it's come up in an inquest, there's still been no comment from them to us about what's actually happened, nor any acknowledgment that they've made errors, which I find absolutely appalling.

They do owe us an apology but an apology is not going to fix anything, nothing's going to be fixed by that. But just some acknowledgment that they should have done something better would be good.

DAVID WEBER: The Zappelli family had already told the court they believed Thomas Craig should be brought to trial for murder. The other man, Norman Raisbeck, died in 1988 after he made a death-bed confession implicating himself and Thomas Craig.

The Coroner has indicated the confession couldn't be used as evidence but the Deputy Police Commissioner, Bruce Brennan, has raised the possibility of another investigation on the basis of some of the evidence given to the second coronial inquest.

BRUCE BRENNAN: There are areas that we can re-examine because there's a different perspective put on some of the statements. Some people have had a change of . let's just say their memories have either improved or, in fact, become more clouded but anyway there are different emphasis put on various different issues and it's my intention to take that up with the Commissioner when he comes back next week.

DAVID WEBER: However the Deputy Commissioner says there will be no apology to the Zappelli family because the police service has done nothing wrong. The Deputy Commissioner has risen to the defence of John Porter who conducted the original investigation and went on to become WA's Police Commissioner.

BRUCE BRENNAN: It's always our intention to try and resolve these dreadful crimes. It's never our intention to botch them, to make mistakes and so on. It was never John Porter's intention to do that. He was genuinely and earnestly interested in resolving the case.

I was a detective myself back then and I do remember the exchanges of information that used to occur. Now 30 years on who knows why he made some of the decisions he made but, you know, with the benefit of hindsight they do appear to have gaps in them.

COMPERE: Western Australia's Deputy Police Commissioner, Bruce Brennan, ending David Weber's report.

Note this one: is this what is referenced in the new video on YouTube?

LE seems to have connected Julie Cutler. In the article I linked a few hours ago, BRB, let me get the quote...
I'm not sure police have made any other definitive connections, but if they have, I think they'd keep it on the DL

Did Karra connection come out just before all the POI's were unofficially cleared?
If so then they must of been trying hard for 5 years to get one of the POI's before releasing the karra link

Actually, no. This isn't how geometry works. Per your instructions, you say to see a line between Jane's body and Ciara's. That line is automatically 180
°. Because it's a straight line, and that's the definition of a straight line.

If you then try to add in a third point, such as the corner of St Quentin Ave and Bayview Terrace, as you suggested, then you will likely get an angle. But you can't just pick a fulcrum based on common locations. The whole point in the murder line is the locations must already lie on the line. 
And the angle could not possibly be 347.5
°. That's almost a complete circle. If you chose the corner of St Quentin and BVT as a fulcrum, then the angle would ~170° or ~190°.

Wow. Have you ever seen a compass? Like a directional one that has a pointer on it? 

If you stood at Jane's site and pointed the compass to the north, you could then look in the direction of Ciara and the compass would say 347.5 degrees.

Then go to Ciara's site and point north again, then turn 180 degrees so you are facing south and you will see the angle to Jane's site is............................167.5 degrees. Or you could simply think of it in your head that 347.5 minus 167.5 equals...................................180 degrees.

This has NOTHING to do with geometry. But it has a lot to do with Mapping. And here's another big word for you NAVIGATION. 


But don't take my word for it. Actually open Google Earth and draw the line between those two points and if you look at the Ruler function it will tell you the ANGLE with respect to north, that you are travelling in. If it says 347.5 degrees, are you also going to write to Google or possibly the US Navy to tell them that a straight line could not possibly be 347.5 because it's almost a circle? They will put that onto their noticeboard with a big "Cop this" sign and they will all have a good laugh, the same as I am laughing at you now. Whatever you do, don't ever leave home. You will try to walk in a straight line and get hit by a bus.

If you are referring to me being into astrology, no I am not. I simply added their signs to demonstrate how the killer might find out if they are suitable. Let's say he is searching for a girl who's star sign is Virgo and then his next one has to be a Libra and so on. All he needs to find is a girl who is a Virgo and watch her leave. Then take her when she is vulnerable. If she can't be caught, then he looks for the next girl who answered Virgo. Or whatever sign he is looking for. He doesn't have to start trying to create a relationship. All he has to do is find out which girls have the star sign he asked for.

Asking someone 'what's your sign' in the 1990's wouldn't be an icebreaker. It would be the end of the conversation.

It may seem rather stereotypical and a bit Hollywood, but a small percentage of serial killers enjoy these games immensely. Not all serial killers are low IQ truck drivers who just want to strangle a girl to death while jacking off then leave her in a culvert.

It has been proven that many serial killers want their victims to be found so the public can see their handiwork. Where's the fun in killing someone and keeping it to themselves? The Zodiac killer, for one, also told the police certain extra things he did to the bodies.

Each girl was older than the previous too.
Was Karra girl 17? if so she could be included

If it is related then i lean towards him knowing the birthdays prior
 
Asking star signs in the conti and then hoping they would be alone at some point after leaving. This would end up looking suss and a low percentage of a successful attack

And yet all three girls were taken without being seen. SS was alone on a street corner, JR disappeared from plain sight and CG was last seen, alone, walking up Stirling Highway.

Yes, I'm familiar with a compass.

Navigation is largely based upon geometry. 


Neither compass, nor computer are required to determine the angle between Jane and Ciara. 
The angle between any two objects is always 180°. It is a straight line. 

The murder line, as being discussed in this thread, is based upon more than two locations falling on a 180° line. I'm not sure if you are proposing another theory altogether or why you included such calculations in your original post. 


This is the first I've read about lining locations up with magnetic north, or any other north, for that matter. Previous discussions have centered on the locations in relation to 
each other.

1986 Sharon Fulton - 31 May 1946 - Gemini
 
1987 Sally Greenham - 20 May 1949 - Taurus
 
1988 Julie Cutler - 27 July - Leo

The only birthdate I could find there was Sharon Fulton 31.05.46
Sharon Fulton was a Gemini (which fits the pattern)
Sharon Fulton went missing from the East Perth Railway Station

See above

Let's say he is searching for a girl who's star sign is Virgo and then his next one has to be a Libra and so on. All he needs to find is a girl who is a Virgo and watch her leave. Then take her when she is vulnerable. If she can't be caught, then he looks for the next girl who answered Virgo. Or whatever sign he is looking for. He doesn't have to start trying to create a relationship. All he has to do is find out which girls have the star sign he asked for.

He may have believed that if he killed a woman in every star sign, he would be destroying the alleged characteristics and traits that went along with that particular star sign? He may hate all women? 
Otherwise it could be another clue to his identity?
 
Someone recently talked about the Tropic of Capricorn?

Could Gerard Ross and Corryn Rayney (and anyone else I may have suggested) please be added to the list. TIA

Have only found a few, as per above haven't started on the rest. I agree we should put them all in I will create a spreadsheet - can we legally put POI's in - could help to align with there date of birth as well. (I think someone else was already doing?) star signs or not it's interesting to look at age at the time and birthdays. As it would be to look at each profile of the person. Could create a google spreadsheet so that everyone could input? (Can this be done without revealing email addresses? (tech heads)

17-12-2015 JWSleuth 

Or perhaps we keep seperate as a general missing unsolved Perth thread to avoid clogging up? Then similarities can be discussed back here?

Missing murdered & unsolved females perth area, 1980/1990s.
some of those listed names can be taken off the list too ,being irrelevant ( For example cariad anderson slater )
News;
 
I just learned here that barbara weston was found "Beheaded" at spectactles wetlands 19:3:91
 
( interesting info ) & possibly relevant .
I think it's fair to discuss the links of unsolved homicides pre-csk & birnie era etc because this relates to maybe why LE knew there was a serial killer active early on ( read JR ) .seems like there is room for investigation into the disappearances of the women where they fit into the familiar dump ground patterns & anything that might be relevant, ( #Chart enthusiasts go for it ).
Maybe a link can be found to the csk around the time frame "86-"96 . There is quite a pattern of missing women being found in the bush on the outskirts of perth, most commonly to the south/east , often seemingly underreported cases .
 

Update; ( jmo ) ,
Missing 25-5-86 barbara weston Found beheaded 19-3-91 spectactles).
 
Annette deverall missing 13-9-80 , found 7-7-82 headless torso waroona dam . are there other cases of this mutilation ? I have heard that jr and/or cg bodies may have had similar cuts. Seeing these atrocities happened a fair time ago would it be permitted to address the beheading topic that has mostly been whispers only,
 
( Opinions please ? ) maybe there were more that suffered the same fate but the reports didn't reveal those details at the time

Danny Harold Rolling was a serial killer who mutilated his victims. I'm trying to see how common it is.

I like it. Hard to imagine though that someone so smart would be into Astrology.

I like it also.
The killer might have no interest in astrology at all, but might well wish to create a pattern for various psychological gratification. Everything we know about this killer smacks of resentment towards the victims - creating an astrological pattern fits with this apparent contempt.
These killings also started at the same time the movie Seven was released - another story about a serial killer making a pattern (seven deadly sins, in that story) and deliberately misleading police.



                                         Anne Zappelli

                                  WA police to further investigate Anne Zappelli murder THE BEAUTY QUEEN MURDER

https://au.news.yahoo.com/sunday-night/transcripts/a/12956353/the-beauty-queen-murder/#page1

                               Yahoo7 on February 20, 2012

                                              

The beauty queen murder

RAHNI SADLER: Anne Zappelli was a young woman from country Western Australia, beginning to make her way in the world.

Colin Zappelli: If you look at a photo of her, that sort of tells you what she was like. She stood out in a crowd, you know, she was just a good person.

Rhonda Zappelli: She was tiny and small and delicate and dainty, she was very attractive and very personable. And you know she went into the Miss Australia Quest even though she was quite shy. I'm sure she would've gone onto a great life. It just wasn't to be.

RAHNI SADLER: In September 1969 on a lonely road, on a cold night, life. Thanks to somebody, her life came to an end Beauty queen, she was murdered in Anne Zappelli was raped and murdered.
Her half-naked body was found two days later. She was 20. You know who killed your sister?

Colin Zappelli: Yeah I do yeah he live in Bunbury.

RAHNI SADLER: From the beginning, police bungled the case.

Rhonda Zappelli: It was a dog's breakfast. There are a lot of things that got botched.

Colin Zappelli: The police lost evidence. Absolute disgrace as far as I am concerned.

RAHNI SADLER: Repeated attempts to get the case reopened were blocked.

Rhonda Zappelli: They tried to keep it all secret.

RAHNI SADLER: The man who wanted it all to go away would later become the West Australian police commissioner. Decades on this cold case is far from over. Tonight, the hunt for the cold-blooded killer of Anne Zappelli.

Colin Zappelli: You want justice.

RAHNI SADLER: Who killed your sister.

Colin Zappelli: Thomas Craig.

RAHNI SADLER: Hi, Mr Craig.

RAHNI SADLER: Tell me about Anne as a child?

Rhonda Zappelli: I just remember her as being a big sister. She used to whinge at me because we used to share a room and I was always the messy one. She was really tidy.

RAHNI SADLER: The Zappellis lived in the small country town of Morawa, 400 kilometres north of Perth. That's Anne on the right
with older brother Colin and younger sister Rhonda.

RAHNI SADLER: How would you have described her personality?

Colin Zappelli: She was more quiet, not loud, she wasn't loud. Not like me.

RAHNI SADLER: After leaving school, Anne got a job as a telephonist in Morawa.

RAHNI SADLER: And she was just about to go into a beauty pageant?

Colin Zappelli: Yep. She was, um, five days shy of being in the regional judging in Geraldton.

RAHNI SADLER: For Miss Australia?

Colin Zappelli: For Miss Australia, yep.

RAHNI SADLER: Was she looking forward to that?

Colin Zappelli: I think so, yeah.

RAHNI SADLER: In the lead-up to the quest, Anne had raised over $1,500 for charity. On September 17 she travelled to Geraldton.

Rhonda Zappelli: She was in Geraldton to do an exam so she could go further in her job.

RAHNI SADLER: Five days later, Anne went to the drive-in with some friends. But they got there late, mid-way through the film,
and Anne decided to leave.

RAHNI SADLER: She must have got bored with being there so she said, "Well, I'm gonna go home" so she got out of the car
and walked.

Newsreel: It was undoubtedly this decision to walk about two miles back to Geraldton that cost her her life.

Colin Zappelli: She didn't know Geraldton. She wouldn't have known which way to go.

RAHNI SADLER: Passing motorists saw two men in a car slow down next to Anne. One of them saw the men stop and get out. They described a short man and a tall man who walked with a limp.
The eye witnesses drove on. Anne Zappelli was never seen alive
again.

Rhonda Zappelli: Obviously she would have been terrified. Um, I don't like to think about it. It's just too horrible.

RAHNI SADLER: Anne Zappelli had put up a fierce struggle before being bashed unconscious, raped and strangled, probably with her pantyhose. Two days later, Anne's body was found in bushland 1.5 kilometres from the drive-in. On the night she was murdered two local criminals, Thomas Craig - a short man - and Norm Raisbeck, who was tall and walked with a limp fled town at midnight. Four days later they turned up in Adelaide. How hard did you work to solve this?

Roy Stewart: Would you believe 18 hours a day.

RAHNI SADLER: So is there anything in relation to the investigation that you wished you'd done differently?

Roy Stewart: Nope.

RAHNI SADLER: You're happy with the way things went?

Roy Stewart: Exactly.

RAHNI SADLER: Roy Stewart was a young detective sent from Perth to join the investigation led by this man, Detective Sgt John Porter. Early on, basic police work was overlooked or bungled. Imprints of shoe and tyre marks found at the crime scene weren't taken. There was no forensic examination of the car Craig and Raisbeck fled to Adelaide in. The clothes they were wearing that night were confiscated but later lost along with fingernail scrapings and swabs taken from Anne's body. And Anne's own fingerprints were never taken so couldn't be matched with any found in or on the killer's car.

RAHNI SADLER: Fingerprints weren't taken from Anne Zappelli herself?

Roy Stewart: Well, I believe that is correct.

RAHNI SADLER: Was that a bit of a.....

Roy Stewart: That was a mistake.

RAHNI SADLER: So, some mistakes were made?

Roy Stewart: Well, that was a mistake.

RAHNI SADLER: Then there's the two prime suspects, Raisbeck and Craig, had prior convictions for assaulting girls and young women. The car they fled to Adelaide in matched the description
of the car witnesses saw following Anne Zappelli, as did their physical descriptions. 13 days after Anne's murder, Detective Sergeant Porter flew to Adelaide to interview both men but quickly ruled them out as suspects, accepting an alibi provided by Raisbeck's de facto that they'd left town before Anne's murder.

Roy Stewart: We made enquiries along those lines at the time and it fitted with what they'd said. But the alibi was false.

Colin Zappelli: Everyone was led to believe that these were the best detectives that West Australia could muster when this investigation started.

RAHNI SADLER: Do you think they're the best detectives?

Colin Zappelli: No. I don't think they're the best detectives at all. I think that, um, a plumber or a milkman could've solved it
before the,.

RAHNI SADLER: After Detective Sergeant Porter dismissed them as suspects Raisbeck and Craig slipped out of sight. 18 months later, Thomas Craig assaulted a young woman in the home of Kay Preedy, whose family knew him. 18-year-old Kay was in another room when she heard screams coming from the lounge room. She raced round and saw Craig with his hands around the woman's throat.

Kay Preedy: I heard him say to her, "I'll strangle you like I did to that Anne Zappelli with hose" and that's when I screamed out to my husband.

RAHNI SADLER: Kay's husband chased him down the street. The fearful young victim asked that police not be told and Thomas Craig disappeared again. Four years later near Margaret River,
16-year-old Cate Edwards accepted a ride from Craig, who she knew from around town.

Cate Edwards: I was hitchhiking home. It was on the side of a fairly barren road and Tom Craig stopped and picked me up.

RAHNI SADLER: Craig started driving but not long later pulled over.

Cate Edwards: He stopped the car and said "Look I'll be back in a minute "I've just got to get something out the back "to find out where I'm going next." The next thing I knew, he was opening my door. Pushed me forward and he had a piece of firewood and he just bashed me over the head and just started hitting me and hitting me again and again with a piece of wood, all over this side of my head.

RAHNI SADLER: Was he saying anything?

Cate Edwards: No, not at this time. He was trying to knock me unconscious. He was just wanting me to be quiet. I just knew that I was going to be dead on the side of the road. He was going to kill me and put me on the side of the road. I was so terrified.

RAHNI SADLER: Showing amazing presence of mind, Cate says she pleaded with Craig, talking him out of the attack, promising to tell no-one and to be his friend. He drove her home but as soon as he left, the bruised and battered teenager called police, who charged him. But Thomas Craig got off. The court was not allowed to hear of his prior convictions, including a 9-month jail sentence for bashing a woman with a hammer in 1967.

Cate Edwards: To this day, Cate says the police brief was woefully inadequate. I sort of thought that they were on my side, the police were on my side and they really wanted to get him, that they would do a better job. My sister calls him the 'Teflon man', that nothing sticks to him. I think he's quite sick.

RAHNI SADLER: Beauty queen Anne Zappelli was raped and murdered in 1969. From the start, the police investigation was flawed. Crucial evidence never collected, key suspects Tom Craig and Norm Raisbeck never properly investigated.

Newsreel: It has been a frustrating investigation and police have all but given up hope of finding Ann's killer.

RAHNI SADLER: But out of the blue in 1980, a decade on, a new lead.

Re-enactment man: I was involved in a crime.

RAHNI SADLER: An anonymous call to a Perth radio station.

RAHNI SADLER: We did something terrible.

Re-enactment man 2: How terrible.

Re-enactment man: It's Geraldton, a country town. Don't think murder is a light charge.

RAHNI SADLER: The caller didn't give his name but police suspected it was Norm Raisbeck. An Australian-wide alert was issued to track him down. He was to be offered a indemnity in return for his testamony that Tom Craig had killed Anne Zappelli But the hunt for Norm was shut down by John Porter, the detective who led the original bungled investigation. Porter was
about to be appointed Police Commissioner and told the detective
responsible to back off.

Mike O'Halloran: He was called to Mr Porter's office. He was called to Mr Porter's office. He was then the deputy commissioner and told cease any further wery as it has been thoroughly investigated by Mr Porter in 1970.

RAHNI SADLER: The case was put on ice for another eight years. Then in 1988, three years after his retirement, a breakthrough.

Re-enactment man 3: So, Norm, let's go back to that night back in 1969.

Re-enactment man: Yeah. Alright.

RAHNI SADLER: Police finally tracked down Norm to a hospital in Adelaide where he was seriously ill. What he told them was explosive.

Re-enactment man 3: Norm, did you have sex with the girl?

Re-enactment man: Yes.

Re-enactment man 3: And Tommy?

Re-enactment man: Oh yeah. He had her in a head lock. And he pulled her down at some point.

RAHNI SADLER: Raisbeck said that the last time he saw Anne, she was alive and Craig's arms were around her neck. The autopsy revealed she had been strangled.

Re-enactment man 3: Norm, have you told us the truth here today?

Re-enactment man: Yes.

RAHNI SADLER: Police now thought they had the evidence to go after Tom Craig but critically, they only took notes, not a sworn statement. One month later, Raisbeck died and his confession was useless because it had no legal standing.

RAHNI SADLER: So the man confessed to the crime, yet still nothing could be done about it.

Mike O'Halloran: Nothing could be done about it.

RAHNI SADLER: The police kept the confession from Ann's family for six years.

Colin Zappelli: I was shocked. I thought - the thing is you think the police are on your side.

RAHNI SADLER: Rhonda Zappelli now pressured police to reopen
the case. In 1996, an internal police investigation was launched. But retired police commissioner John porter refused to be interviewed. So what reason did Mr Porter give for not allowing himself to be interviewed?

Mike O'Halloran: His reputation. He had his reputation to consider.

RAHNI SADLER: You say there was no cover up.

Roy Stewart: What are you suggesting? No, that's over. Finished.

RAHNI SADLER: Porter's fellow detective rejects any suggestion their investigation was flawed but in 2001, a coronial inquest concluded Raisbeck and Tom Craig should never have been excluded as suspects. Half of the evidence in the case had been lost. This one should have been solved.

Mike O'Halloran: Should have been, could have been solved.

RAHNI SADLER: John porter is now 89, he refused our request to be interviewed on camera. We tracked down Thomas Craig to a carpark in Bunbury. Left or right suit you better? This way.
42 years after Anne Zappelli's murder, the prime suspect works for the Uniting Church, clearing charity bins.

RAHNI SADLER: Hi, Mr Craig, did you have a pattern of violence towards women. Didn't you have a conviction for

Thomas Craig: No.

RAHNI SADLER: Didn't you have a conviction in 1967 for attacking a woman with a hammer?

Thomas Craig: Yes, but it wasn't me though.

RAHNI SADLER: You were wrongly convicted.

Thomas Craig: That's right.

Cate Edwards: And he just bashed me over the head with it.

RAHNI SADLER: What about Kate Edwards, you didn't attack her either?

Thomas Craig: No.

Kay Preedy: I saw him with his hands around her throat.

RAHNI SADLER: What about the woman who you allegedly put your hands around the neck and said "I'll kill like Anne Zappelli"

Thomas Craig: No.

RAHNI SADLER: So all of these people are telling lies?

Thomas Craig: Yes. Now, G'day to you.

RAHNI SADLER: If you look at the evidence.

Thomas Craig: Go away, go way. That's enough. If you don't, I will have you charged with harassment.

Colin Zappelli: I've got a photo Anne in the house. And like every time you see it, when you look at it every day, yeah, it
brings back memories yes and you are reminded that someone still hasn't been punished for that.

Reporter: David Weber

COMPERE: Now police in Western Australia say there'll be further investigations into the murder of beauty queen Anne Zappelli in Geraldton nearly 32 years ago.

The Police Commissioner and Senior Crown Counsel will discuss matters raised in the Coroner's report on Ms Zappelli's death which includes a scathing account of investigations into the murder. But the Zappelli family is not going to get the apology it wants from the police service for its failures over the last 30 years.

David Weber prepared this report.

UNIDENTIFIED: On Monday night, September the 22nd, there began in this drive-in cinema, the Oasis in Geraldton, a mystery which has not yet been solved.

DAVID WEBER: It's nearly 32 years down the track and the mystery still hasn't been solved. Despite four police investigations, two coronial inquests and a death-bed confession, no-one's been charged over the death of Anne Zappelli who was raped and strangled after she started walking home from a drive-in on a night in September 1969.

Thomas Craig and the late Norman Raisbeck [phonetic], who left Geraldton for Adelaide on the night of the murder, were arrested and questioned but were excluded as suspects.

Coroner Alistair Hope, who conducted the second inquest, said he couldn't identify the killer with confidence, buy he made scathing comments about the original investigation. He said Raisbeck and Craig should never have been excluded. Scientific evidence was inadequately gathered and seriously deficient. Mr Hope said that in the years since, important forensic evidence has been lost - meaning a DNA comparison is impossible.

Anne's sister, Rhonda Zappelli, says she's disgusted over the way police handled the case and the inquest.

RHONDA ZAPPELLI: The police haven't admitted to any of those criticisms, either. They've basically tried to keep this hidden for 30 years and now - even now, when it's come up in an inquest, there's still been no comment from them to us about what's actually happened, nor any acknowledgment that they've made errors, which I find absolutely appalling.

They do owe us an apology but an apology is not going to fix anything, nothing's going to be fixed by that. But just some acknowledgment that they should have done something better would be good.

DAVID WEBER: The Zappelli family had already told the court they believed Thomas Craig should be brought to trial for murder. The other man, Norman Raisbeck, died in 1988 after he made a death-bed confession implicating himself and Thomas Craig.

The Coroner has indicated the confession couldn't be used as evidence but the Deputy Police Commissioner, Bruce Brennan, has raised the possibility of another investigation on the basis of some of the evidence given to the second coronial inquest.

BRUCE BRENNAN: There are areas that we can re-examine because there's a different perspective put on some of the statements. Some people have had a change of . let's just say their memories have either improved or, in fact, become more clouded but anyway there are different emphasis put on various different issues and it's my intention to take that up with the Commissioner when he comes back next week.

DAVID WEBER: However the Deputy Commissioner says there will be no apology to the Zappelli family because the police service has done nothing wrong. The Deputy Commissioner has risen to the defence of John Porter who conducted the original investigation and went on to become WA's Police Commissioner.

BRUCE BRENNAN: It's always our intention to try and resolve these dreadful crimes. It's never our intention to botch them, to make mistakes and so on. It was never John Porter's intention to do that. He was genuinely and earnestly interested in resolving the case.

I was a detective myself back then and I do remember the exchanges of information that used to occur. Now 30 years on who knows why he made some of the decisions he made but, you know, with the benefit of hindsight they do appear to have gaps in them.

COMPERE: Western Australia's Deputy Police Commissioner, Bruce Brennan, ending David Weber's report.

Decades-old murder mystery back in Perth Coroner's Court

Decades-old murder mystery back in Perth Coroner's Court

PM Archive - Tuesday, 6 March , 2001  00:00:00

Reporter: David Weber

MARK COLVIN: Now to a decades old murder mystery in Western Australia that's being raked over at a coronial inquest in Perth. 

Anne Zappelli, an entrant in the Miss Australia Quest was killed in Geraldton in Western Australia in 1969 but despite three police inquiries no one has ever been charged. 

In 1988 a dying man claimed that he'd raped Miss Zappelli while his companion, Thomas Craig, killed her. 

Today the coroner's court heard from a former state police commissioner who'd cleared both men and then tried to stop a second inquiry into the unsolved murder. David Weber reports.

DAVID WEBER: Anne Zappelli was in Geraldton in September 1969 for postal exams. The beauty queen had gone to the drive in with friends but she didn't like the film and decided to walk back to her boarding house. Her body was found in bushes about one-and-a-half kilometres from the drive in. She'd been raped and strangled.

At around about the estimated time of death, Thomas Craig and Norman Raisbeck left Geraldton on a long road trip, driving through the night to Perth on their way to Adelaide. When they arrived the two men were questioned by then Detective Sergeant John Porter who didn't think they were involved.

It was 18 years later when Raisbeck admitted raping Anne Zappelli and said Craig killed her. Thomas Craig has always denied any involvement. The coronial inquest is due to the lobbying efforts of Anne's sister Rhonda. The court itself is packed every day with the floor covered with bulging lever arch files containing reports on yellowed paper.

The proceedings have involved strong tests of memory and 78-year-old John Porter is one of those whose memory has faded somewhat.

John Porter had been a detective for 20 years by the time he came to lead the original investigation. Mr Porter told the court there was blood on Raisbeck's clothes, that his shirt and trousers had gone missing after an initial investigation.

Mr Porter said they were useless anyway, because the blood test results were inconclusive and police didn't have DNA evidence as a tool back then.

Mr Porter didn't feel inclined to revisit the matter in 1970, after a prison inmate claimed Craig had confessed to him. The prison inmate was considered untrustworthy. 

Mr Porter went on to become Deputy Police Commissioner in 1980 and Commissioner in 1981. The Zappelli case was reopened after someone called a radio station confessing to a murder in Geraldton. 

The new investigating officer wanted to bring Raisbeck back to Western Australia on a hunch. Then Deputy Commissioner Porter told the officer that Craig and Raisbeck had been well and truly investigated and he asked the officer, "Didn't you think it was done properly the first time?"

John Porter denied he was thinking about becoming Commissioner in a few months and the implications of a second investigation for his career.

It was seven years before Raisbeck's deathbed claim that he and Craig did it. Mr Porter said that he now regards his investigation as a failure because he couldn't determine who committed the murder. The inquest is continuing.

Death of a beauty queen

By ADRIENNE JONES
Sunday 25 March 2001


The image of 20-year-old Miss Australia hopeful Anne Zappelli is forever frozen as a young figure in a white dress walking briskly down a dimly lit country highway to her death.

She was raped and murdered somewhere either side of midnight on September 25, 1969, in a vacant block 50 metres from the road in the West Australian country town of Geraldton as she walked home alone from the local drive-in.


Until a deathbed confession to rape and murder 19 years after the event and a second inquest 31 years on, her death remained one of Australia's greatest mysteries. An initial inquest failed to identify who killed her, and, despite more than 9000 interviews, three police inquiries and endless public controversy, the crime remains, to this day, unsolved.

But tomorrow, after a sensational second inquest into her death, Anne Zappelli's family and friends hope their nightmare will end; that, after hearing eight days of evidence, WA Coroner Alastair Hope will tell them, finally, who killed her.


The apogee of years of campaigning by Rhonda Zappelli, Anne's younger sister, the new inquest turned the spotlight on repeated criticisms of police handling of investigations, and on two prime suspects never charged.

Former partners in petty crime, the late Norman Raisbeck and his accomplice, Thomas John Craig, fled Geraldton for South Australia the night of Anne Zappelli's murder. Like several other men in Geraldton at the time, they were key suspects, but were not charged - because both had alibis.
They fled, according to Thomas Craig, because they had committed burglaries in Geraldton, for which they were later extradited to WA and jailed.


Norman Raisbeck, however, on his 1988 deathbed in a South Australian hospital, confessed to two WA detectives interviewing him that he and Mr Craig were involved. He said he had raped Miss Zappelli, but blamed Mr Craig for her murder.

 Still no charges were laid, and when the Zappelli family found out about Mr Raisbeck's dying confession six years after his death, Thomas Craig was living a citizen's life with his wife and family in the seaside town of Bunbury.


Rhonda Zappelli began campaigning for a new inquest when the family also learned that critical forensic evidence had been misplaced or destroyed. Former state attorney-general Peter Foss took up their cause in May last year, and the inquest opened in late February with the now 60-year-old Thomas Craig in the public gallery.

He heard his late friend's deathbed confession read to the court, charging that Thomas Craig was obsessed with Miss Zappelli and angry that she had gone to the drive-in with a local police officer instead of going out with him. 

The two men had found her walking alone on the main street back to Geraldton from the drive-in and attacked her

. Both men had raped her, but it was Mr Craig who had strangled her. Raisbeck said he had raped her first, and when he went back to the car, Mr Craig had Miss Zappelli in a headlock. Mr Craig had returned to the car with blood on his clothing and scratches on his face. 

They then fled to South Australia and agreed never to discuss what happened.


Former police internal investigations officer Michael O'Halloran confirmed in court that Miss Zappelli had died from strangulation, a fact police had kept secret and which only the killer could have known.
The Zappelli family's lawyer, Felicity Zempilas, told the court the evidence very strongly suggested Mr Craig and Mr Raisbeck were responsible for raping and murdering Anne Zappelli and that Mr Craig should be committed to stand trial in the Supreme Court.

But Mr Craig said he had never met Miss Zappelli, that it was just coincidence he and his friend Mr Raisbeck had left for South Australia at the time she went missing, and that Mr Raisbeck's statement was "completely false, everything in it".


In eight days of drama, the inquest brought together for the first time the full cast of people linked for decades in unresolved grief and collective suspicion.


Among them were key witnesses Graham Batt, the young constable who was with her at the drive-in that night with two other friends, and Geraldton schoolteacher Roy Ryan, who wanted to date her but missed out to the policeman.


The policeman told the inquest that he and Anne Zappelli had kissed at the drive-in but Miss Zappelli had been tired and suddenly decided to walk back to Geraldton. He and his friends spent hours looking for her when she didn't return, and reported her missing.


The schoolteacher was probably the last to see her alive, except for whoever killed her. Dating another girl, he had passed Miss Zappelli hurrying along the gravel verge of the road towards town with two men following her, and said he had always felt guilty about not stopping to help her.
The policeman and the schoolteacher bore the brunt of suspicion, especially in Geraldton, where relationships are close and murder is everyone's business.


Five years younger than Anne, Rhonda Zappelli was 15 when her sister was murdered. She can't remember much about her sister and says her memories are frozen in the amnesia of grief. She remembers Anne Zappelli was a role model she could never emulate, a pretty girl with a wicked sense of humor, but very shy.

But Rhonda Zappelli remembers more.

Rhonda Zappelli  remembers when her sister died her family life shattered, with her distraught mother constantly sedated and her father, her two brothers and herself floundering, rudderless.

She remembers the iconisation of her sister into a kind of perpetual celluloid beauty queen, frozen forever in perfection.


"That's the worst thing about it, she's stuck as this Perspex kind of Miss Perfection, and she would be horrified to think she had 20 years and all there is is a photo of her with the bouquet and a tiara on."


She also remembers a quarrel between Anne and her mother about a new dress. Her sister's death robbed them both of the chance to make up.


"The thing that really bugs me is the fact that someone is taken away by someone else and you lose all that ... the humanity that's part of a normal relationship."
Whether the inquest has resolved the 30-year mystery of her sister's murder, it may fulfil one other mission for Anne Zappelli's family: to deconstruct the creation of yet another saintly icon from the memory of a stolen life

Unsolved Crimes

Felicia Wilson


Date: 2000/5/30  Location: Australia

Description


On Wednesday the10th of January 1979 Bevis & Colleen Wilson from the southern Perth suburb of Orelia, West Australia, experienced every parents worst nightmare, their 19 year old daughter Felicia Marie failed to return home. 

Having recently started a new job at the nearby Kwinana Community Health Centre it should only have taken her a few minuets to reach her Dargin Place home after finishing at 4pm, however when she failed to materialize by 6pm her anxious parents started making calls. Nursing staff told them she had clocked off two hours earlier and intended to post letters on her way home. Knowing the route she traversed, her fiancée James Bryce went looking for her but found no trace. By 9pm, with still no sign or word of Felicia, her now frantic parents phoned the police for help, their nightmare just beginning. 

**Grim Discovery**

After an agonizing sleepless night there was still no sign of Felicia. At 8am the secretary of the Kwinana Community Health Centre, Mrs. Joy Carter, accompanied by two nursing sisters, decided to undertake a search of their own. Although Felicia had only worked with them a few days her sprightly personality had endeared her to them. The nurses followed the 300m bitumen path she had trod the previous day. The region had an bad reputation with locals due to the fact in 1972 the battered body of local school girl, Gina Merrifield, had been found there. The path the nurses followed linked the Community Health Centre with Council Offices, passing over a hillock through stony scrubland. After a few minutes the nurses found a hand bag and shoe just off the path, following the debris with trepidation they stumbled on Felicia`s lifeless body, curled in a fetal position and ran weeping for help. 

Within minutes of the grim discovery the area was crawling with uniformed and plain clothed police as the highly industrialized town around them went about its day. Officers quarantined the crime scene bounded by Sulphur Road & Gilmour Avenue as forensic officers arrived and spent two hours scouring every inch for evidence. 

Felicia was found naked, her strewn clothing and personal effects testament to the fact she fought valiantly for her life. Her body had several cuts, possibly resulting from the attacker cutting her clothing off with a pocket knife. A subsequent autopsy showed she died c4:30pm of massive head injuries resultant from a limestone boulder weighing at least 27kg which the killer lifted out of the ground [leaving a recess in the earth] and dropped on her head. The autopsy also revealed that although the murderer had removed her clothing she had not been sexually assaulted. Criminal profilers believe the frenzied savagery resulted from the assailant venting frustration, perhaps from being unable to perform sexually. Although there`s a possibility her clothing was removed to throw investigators off, an attempt to make the crime appear motivated by something it wasn`t. 

Australia`s foremost criminal profiler, Professor Dr. Paul Wilson (no relation) said the manner in which she was killed, "denotes extreme hate and anger – though this does not necessarily mean that the offender knew the victim".

**Curious Last Movements**

Felicia`s last movements continue to baffle police and historians. 

Why did she run into scrubland when she was just 150m from the bustling Kwinana Recreation Centre where16 people were still working and 300m from the Health Centre?. From her position the Council Chambers were in sight, just down a slope, detectives were also stunned that such an assault happened in broad daylight so close to community facilities and no one heard or saw anything untoward. 

Baffled police resorted to calling in outback trackers in hope their examination of the pathway and scrubland would provide clues rationalizing her movements, tracks suggested that the girl had panicked when accosted by her killer; her footprints and those of a man zigzagged through the low scrub to the spot her battered body was found. There was also evidence suggestion the assailant tripped and fell on a stony outcrop, injuring his head. 

**Witnesses Come Forward**

Locals were stunned into silence and outraged by the crime and police received hundreds of calls along with statements from two important witnesses: one said that at 3:30pm she was near the bitumen track leading from the Council Chambers in Sulphur Road to the Community Health Centre where the girl was last seen alive, she saw a man coming towards her from the direction of the shire offices, he passed her traversing off the main bitumen track along a sandy path towards the Health Centre, the same route believed to have been taken by Felicia. 

About 5pm another woman saw a man whose description tallied with that given by the first but now he walked with a limp, held his left hand to his forehead as if in pain, his shirt was open at the front and as he drew closer she noticed he was covered with dust and dirt. He was walking in Sulphur Road towards Gilmore Avenue, on the footpath on the north side. Sulphur Road flanks one end of the block where the girl was found. However the most important witness to come forward was a Kwinana local who was driving up Sulphur Road and turning into Meares Avenue at around 4:45pm and almost collided with a man bolting out of the area where Felicia`s body was found, he had to break heavily to avoid impact. Chief Superintendent Don Hancock, then head of the WA CIB, said the suspect turned in a menacing manner towards the car and driver. Who was able to give the police a very strong description of the man, the police are confident this was the killer making his escape. He was described by witnesses as:


"A clean shaven Caucasian 19 or 20 years of age, medium height and solid build, had a protruding stomach, perhaps a beer belly, dark fairly thick unruly curly hair which grew to the bottom of his ears. He was wearing light blue jeans, things, a light green checked shirt with long sleeves rolled up to the elbows and covering a tee-shirt. A conspicuous characteristic of the suspect was the singular peculiarity of his gait, he walked with a distinctive limp. The killer was wearing scuffs or thongs with little squares on the bottom, he would have had plenty of poison-bush prickles in his shoes and in his skin like the girl did, they would have festered and bothered him after a couple of days".” Click here to view an identikit of the possible supect

**A Curious Fact**

Was there a witness?

A JOGGER is believed to have stumbled on the parkland murder of Felicia Wilson and fled, according to aboriginal tracker Kevin Cameron, who was called in by police hours after the murder, "he saw her being killed", Mr Cameron said. 

"He had sand shoes - he was probably a jogger" he said, "I tracked the girl as she ran through the bush, where she dropped her handbag and where they had scuffle. She broke away and lost her shoes and then ran to a small clearing where he grabbed her and killed her. The other blokes tracks came in from the other side at the same time, they came in at a certain place and they came out twice as fast, he veered off, he increased his stride, he obviously saw what happened and didn`t want to be part of it".

Mr Cameron said he tracked the witness`s retreating footsteps to a road, he said, "I could have tracked where the murderer went too - but by the time I was called hundreds of police had walked all over the place". 

Tattooed?

Both witnesses described the suspect as "wearing a light green shirt with long sleeves rolled up to the elbows", this fact is noteworthy due to January and February being the two hottest months of the year in Kwinana, the average temperature 31 degrees. On the day of the murder (10.1.79) it was hot and humid, over 30 degrees at midday, 26 degrees with 51% humidity at the time of the murder. Not a time of year to be wearing winter clothing, the suspect may have worn a long sleeve shirt as an act of concealment, it being common for men with tattoos on the upper arms to wear long sleeve shirts (rolled to the elbow) on even the hottest day to hide the unsightly body graffiti when in civil society. Tattoos being the tribal tag of the miscreant class, the sight of which is distinguishing, alarming, even prejudicious to the general public. 



**Police Investigation Fails** 

Kwinana had never seen anything like it before or since, the district was descended on by legions of police and detectives from Perth and surrounding burrows who went door to door looking for information. Detectives investigating other violent homicides arrived on the scene to ascertain if there was a possible link, most notably those investigating the murder of 16-year-old Caroline Joan Fountain of Esperance who was murdered a month prior to Felicia the same way. Special group briefing sessions for police were held in the Kwinana Council Hall, where films of the crime scene were shown to protect the actual location and any remaining evidence from needless further trampling. 

Students at Felicia Wilson`s old school, Kwinana Senior High, were shocked profoundly by the senseless murder of one of the schools most popular students and did what they could to help the investigation. Arts and crafts students creating a remarkably detailed and professional architectural model of the crime scene, which helped detectives at the time and since get a feel for the complex geography of the site. The homicide received national attention and investigation lasted years, although the police had compelling suspects they couldn`t prove guilt and were unable to lay charges. The investigation was scaled back and remains unsolved, a folder on an ever growing mound of West Australian unsolved homicides crying out for justice. 

Many perplexing questions remain unanswered; was it blind terror which sent Felicia running to her doom in scrubland and not to nearby sanctuary or did she know her killer. Did she walk with him not perceiving a threat until it was too late, does this explain why she never cried out for help or was she just the victim of a predator who saw his chance and took it?

**The Wilson Family**

The Wilson`s emigrated to Australia from England in 1967 settling originally in Victoria. Bevis & Colleen Wilson relocated with their five daughters and two sons to Orelia in 1976 for brighter career prospects. Kwinana - aboriginal for Pretty Maiden - then a dynamic, up and coming industrial town attracting workers from across Australia and the world. The family prospered, like her sisters Felicia grew into an accomplished and attractive young lady with a bright future ahead. Her parents encouraged their children to be active and excel, Felicia was an avid tennis player and popular at her local tennis club. The good looks and charm she inherited from her mother saw her consider modeling as a career, she entered beauty pageants and was a finalist in the 1977 "Miss West Coast Beauty Quest". Completing high school she got her first job at the Rockingham branch of the Commonwealth Bank, where she was highly regarded. In the months prior to her death she left to follow her dream of being a flight attendant, unfortunately due to liquor laws at the time she was considered too young by the airline industry and told to reapply at 21, which she intended to do after settling into married life. Had events not taken the path they had Felicia would have married 19 year old factory laborer James Bryce, on the 3rd of February 1979. At the time of her murder, wedding plans were set and invitations sent.


**The Aftermath** 

The Wilson family were devastated by the tragedy, which occurred on their sons eleventh birthday, and the passage of more than two decades hasn`t alleviated the sense of loss. The police and detectives who participated in the investigation, now retired, have never forgotten the case. The senseless brutality, the snuffing out of a young life brimming with vitality on the eve of happiness continues to haunt them, as it does journalists who covered the case in 1979. The fact it remains unsolved prevents them finding closure, however forensic evidence gathered at the time is undergoing DNA analysis as part of the WA Police`s Major Crime Investigation Units aggressive revamp of unsolved homicides which has already brought murderers in decades old cases to justice, presided over by Detective Senior Sergeant Garry Annetts, one of Australia`s foremost detectives, modern advents may yet result in long overdue justice for Felicia and her family.

A couple of places to search for bodies if you're up for it. IMO these are possible dump sites for other bodies. Both places are directly on the line taken at 90 degrees from the CG/JR line taken from the point at St Quentin/Bay view Trc intersection. IMO the red area would be most likely as its close to easily accessed tracks, or the line. Take a stick for the spider webs. Also snakes out in force right now. 
Keep an eye out for SS's shoes. They are likely all that's left. Bones would likely be scattered or completely deteriorated. Leather shoes last a long time outside. Looks like they have a metal buckle also if you're handy with a metal detector.

West Australian Police Force - Most corrupt in Australia

Published on Feb 13, 2015

Steve Johnson travels from Geraldton to the most corrupt Police town in Western Australia to talk with local resident JON about the local officers in his hometown, and WHY they are allowed to fabricate evidence, harrass the public, invent crimes, purjor themselves with impunity, tamper with evidence, how they get away with it and why they can directly themselves deal Speed, ICE, Methyl Amphetamines with total immunity. 

Some say it's the local judge who allows it, some say its the local Cop Shop, I concur it is the SYSTEM ITSELF and the way it works. 

The local cops Cannot NOT be corrupt because the system istelf relies on creating criminals and relies on the revenue from "felons" in such a falsely based judicial system with ZERO oversight. Look further into the contracts to SERCO, The biggest company you'vre never heard of, and wonder why they get so many contracts to a Government that can surely process them itself.

Start to realise, if you are not a CRIMINAL yet, it is only a matter of time unless you work for the GOVERNMENT of WESTERN AUSTRALIA, a Corporate company registered in Washington D.C. The home of freemasonic satanism in America.

When only 1 complaint from 4000 from the Corruption and Crime Commission (CCC) is ever really independently investigated per year, whittled down to 400, after Police find themselves absolved of blame......... WHERE IS THE OVERSIGHT? A system of complete corruption exists in Western Australia. PERIOD. How can 3999 complaints from the public per year from 4000 be called liars?

Nah, the NSW pigs are, in conjunction with ASIO.They had Curtis Cheng murdered because he was a police accountant and knew too much about corruption.Why else would a suicide attacker go for him, a civilian police employee, rather than an actual police officer?NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione is a filthy murdering crook.Seriously, though, I'm not trying to start a pissing contest with you, mate, but the ones on the other side of Australia are pretty bad, too.Thanks for the video.

And then he has filled a house with (allegedly) stolen items. He even drives around without a license like many crims do in perth, Western Australia. If Police could lock away people driving without a license here, the crime boom would be finished overnight! I say this from experience seeing many people out there driving without a license and many of these are associated with drug running etc.


Claremont serial killings: Locals react to case developments

Claremont serial killings: Locals react to case developments

AM  mBy Eliza Borrello

Locals at the Claremont Hotel, the bar where two of the Claremont serial killer's victims were last been seen on the nights they vanished in the 1990s, spoke to ABC reporter Eliza Borrello about hearing the news of a man's arrest in connection to the murdered women.

The 48-year-old man has since been charged with the murders of Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon.

Bret Christian, the editor of The Post, the suburban newspaper which covers the Claremont area, said when he heard the news police had picked someone up "a shiver went down my spine".

"As it did everybody else I've spoken to ... people have had a physical reaction to it," he said.

He said the murders captivated and horrified Perth.

"They happened in I guess a quiet suburban shopping centre, which had a couple of entertainment places," Christian said.

"And they were places where the victims had been with their mums shopping, and they felt safe."

John, a local having a drink at the Claremont Hotel, said every time he visited the pub he could not help but think about the three women.

"I just thought [when I heard the news] ... complete amazement, and then I thought that's a wonderful thing if they have caught someone."

Marissa Goodwin, now 29-years-old, was a young girl when the three murders virtually paralysed Perth.

"Knowing that they left from essentially this corner, or this area, it does, it does give you goosebumps," she said.

As an indication of just how ingrained the story has become in the city's psyche, Ms Goodwin knows the publicly released facts to the letter.

She said she hoped that the arrest would lead to some closure for the victims' families.

"Especially for Sarah Spiers family, if he could tell them where she is," Ms Goodwin said.

The three women disappeared from upmarket Claremont in Perth's leafy western suburbs between January 1996 and March 1997


The deaths of three women between 1996 and 1997 sparked Australia's longest-running and most expensive police investigation. Here is a timeline of the key moments.

Sex predator named in Rayney murder trial

Prominent Perth barrister Lloyd Rayney

Sex predator named in Rayney murder trial

One of Western Australia's most notorious sexual predators, who now lives in Victoria, has emerged as a shock person of interest in the murder trial that has gripped the state.

Prominent Perth barrister Lloyd Rayney is standing trial in the Supreme Court of WA, accused of murdering his wife Corryn at their home on August 7, 2007, before disposing of her body in a Kings Park bush grave.

The Rayney trial - the story so far

But yesterday, the now-Victorian based sex offender Allon Lacco and his former housemate Ivan Eades, also "well-known" to police, were named by Mr Rayney's defence team as possible persons of interest in connection to Mrs Rayney's alleged murder.

The two men were living together at a house near to the Rayney's property at the time Corryn Rayney disappeared.

The Rayney Trial: Week 11, day two

The DNA of one of the men - Eades - was found on a cigarette butt recovered from the footpath outside the Rayneys' Como home, a week after Mrs Rayney's body was discovered in a bush grave.

Since being charged in December 2010, Lloyd Rayney has vigorously denied murdering his wife.

Mr Rayney's defence team named the men during the testimony of Detective Sergeant Mark McKenzie, who testified he was unsure if a search had been carried out at the home where Eades and Lacco lived as part of the murder investigation.

He also admitted there was crossed out notation in his police notebook dated October 15, 2007, which said: "sex assault, Kings Park, White".

Below the notation was the name Ivan Eades, with a notation indicating the man had a previous murder conviction.

Lacco moved to Melbourne in 2007 after Mrs Rayney's disappearance.

His move received media coverage in December 2007 when it was revealed he was living near a Geelong school and spending his days surrounded by young people at a local skate park.

Now aged 47, Lacco was dubbed a "monster" after viciously bashing and sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl as she slept in her Perth home in 1989.

That attack came weeks after he raped a 29-year-old woman as she lay in bed next to her two-year-old son. He has also reportedly escaped from prison four times.

Detective Sergeant McKenzie said police were aware the men lived in the vicinity of the Como home.

He could not comment on phone calls made from a payphone located on the Rayneys' street on August 7 and August 8, 2007, which were made to the home of Eades' sister.

The trial before Justice Brian Martin continues.



Quiet boy and helpful neighbour nicknamed ‘Bogsy’ is man accused of Claremont serial killings

http://www.news.com.au/national/courts-law/quiet-boy-and-helpful-neighbour-nicknamed-bogsy-is-man-accused-of-claremont-serial-killings/news-story/44d3d60b4c894e632bb30a23a11bc787

HIS nickname at school was “Bogsy” and his schoolmates from Gosnell Senior High School don’t remember anything remarkable about the man who has now been charged with two of the Claremont serial killings.

Bradley Robert Edwards was a tall, dark-haired quiet schoolboy at the southeast Perth coeducational college who finished his senior school year in 1985.

His quiet demeanour prompted his fellow students to joke on a satirical list of year 12 students’ future ambitions, that his was to be a “life member of AA”, presumably meaning Alcoholics Anonymous.

The man who would go on to be a Telstra technician, and Little Athletics timekeeper and club photographer gave off the same unassuming exterior to neighbours.

Police arrested Mr Edwards last week and charged him with the wilful murders of Jane Rimmer in 1996 and Ciara Glennon in 1997, who both disappeared from Claremont, and over two sexual assaults in Perth in 1988 and 1995.

                        

                    Bradley Edwards (above) in his last year at Gosnells Senior High School in Perth in 1985

                        

    Nicknamed ‘Bogsy’ at Gosnells Senior High School in Perth, Bradley Edwards’ friends joked that his future ambition was to be a ‘life member of AA’.
             

              

        Police make a forensic examination of the Perth home of Bradley Robert Edwards, charged with the murders of Claremont victims Ciara Glennon and Jane Rimmer. 

Mr Edwards has been remanded in custody on eight charges, including two counts of deprivation of liberty, two of aggravated sexual penetration without consent, one break and enter with intent and one of indecent assault.

His arrest astonished neighbours of the 48-year-old accused, who had been living for the past 15 years in a modest four-bedroom house in Kewdale, in south Perth.

The sports fan and computer hobbyist who had helped neighbours with electronic connections in a casual, friendly manner is now in custody charged with allegedly committing two murders in one of Australia’s longest running unsolved cases.

Mr Edwards’ old high school friends were equally surprised, saying that one of their year 12 students had studied law at the University of Western Australia with Ciara Glennon, the last of the three young women whose deaths were attributed to the “Claremont serial killer”.

        Bradley Edwards, above with his former partner, has been charged with two of the Claremont murders and two sex attacks

         
      Mr Edwards is charged with having abducted a teenager in Rowe Park (above) in Perth in 1995

The western Perth suburb of Claremont is an affluent area famous for its clubs, pubs and night-life, and now infamous for the killings.

Mr Edwards has not entered a plea and has not been charged with the murder of Sarah Spiers, whose January 1996 disappearance from Club Bay View in Claremont started the case.

Born in December 1968, Bradley Edwards grew up in at least two different suburbs in Perth and, according to his high school friends, attended Huntingdale Primary School in the 1970s.

Graduating to Gosnells, which is now called Southern River College, Mr Edwards is believed to have attended the school with his brother, who is two years younger.

After finishing year 12, Mr Edwards is believed to have started working for Telstra (then called Telecom) in Perth in 1986.

Police allege that Mr Edwards was the person who committed an attack on a woman in Huntingdale, Perth, in 1988.

The alleged attack took place on February 17 when a man walked into a house and lay on top of a sleeping 18-year-old girl.

The Girl had her thumb out and we just slowed down and thought maybe we should pick her up but didn't." The conversation between the two couples in the car had been that she was a silly girl for trying to hitch in the area and they discussed whether they should pick the girl up. The decided at the last minute to move on. "we said of all placed for a girl to be hitchhiking alone, this was probably the worst," Miss Clayton said.

           Police say this silk kimono police was dropped at the site of a sexual assault in 1988 and they allege is linked to the Claremont murders.

The attacker dropped an embroidered silk kimono dressing gown taken from a clothes line before the attack.

Bradley Edwards has also been charged for the sexual assault of a girl in the suburb of Claremont.

In the early house of February 12, 1997, a 17-year-old was walking home from a club through Rowe Park in Claremont when she was abducted by a man.

            

   Police also searched the Madora Bay home owned by Bradley Edwards’ parents south of Perth after his arrest

     In 1995 a teenage girl was abducted, tied with electrical cord and raped in the Karrakatta Cemetery. 

The attacker tied her with electrical cord, placed a hood over her head and forced her into a vehicle.

She was driven one kilometre away to Karrakatta Cemetery, where she was raped and left.

Last week, police claimed they had found a DNA match between the dropped silk kimono, the Karrakatta rape and the last murder in the Claremont serial killings of Ciara Glennon.

The first suspected murder at Claremont, for which no body has been found and no one has been charged, was of Sarah Spiers.

A country West Australian girl, Spiers moved to Perth to study at a business college and had found work as a secretary with a town planning company when she vanished.

The 17-year-old left Club Bay View early on January 26, 1996, and disappeared while waiting for a taxi on the Stirling Highway.

On June 9, 1996, childcare worker Jane Rimmer, 23, was bar hopping with friends in Claremont when she decided to stay on at the Continental Hotel.
