From a wooden shed in a backyard in the western suburbs, a retired engineer is uncovering the secrets of the universe.
In this bonus episode, the Claremont in Conversation team — Natalie Bonjolo, Tim Clarke, Alison Fan and Kate Ryan — discuss the marathon Claremont serial killings trial and what verdict they expect.
After 95 days and more than 200 witnesses, WA’s trial of the century - the Claremont Serial Killings trial has come to a close.
On Day 94 of the trial, and the fourth day of Paul Yovich’s closing statements, the defence focussed on Ciara Glennon’s disappearance.
The defence told court today that Bradley Edwards did not intend to kill his rape victim. That he planned his attack carefully and carried it out efficiently, but murder was not in that plan.
Perth teenager Cooper Allin is pretty proud of his mullet, but it appears a popular beachside bar doesn’t share his love of the hairstyle made famous in the 80s.
Leading Perth criminal QC Tom Percy joins the Claremont in Conversation podcast team to weigh in on the defence's case and seemingly new information which came out during closing statements.
Those were the final words of prosecutor Carmel Barbagallo as she wrapped up seven months of evidence.
Ruthless, efficient, calculating. That’s how prosecutor Carmel Barbagallo described Bradley Edwards when recapping the crimes he’s alleged to have committed, as well as the ones he’s admitted to.
Bradley Edwards’ DNA was found with Ciara Glennon’s fingernail samples because she ‘fought for her life’ moments before her death. That was according to the prosecution during closing statements.
The lead prosecutor soldiered on during the beginning of her closing statements on day 86 of the Claremont Serial Killings trial, but it didn’t last long - just an hour, in fact.
Tributes are flowing for 19-month-old Aurora Ellis, who tragically died on Sunday after being hit by a car in the driveway of her Bayswater home.
