Claremont serial killings trial podcast: ‘It’s up to Justice Hall now’
Everything’s been said, the evidence is out in the open and now Justice Hall has a massive task ahead of him.
After 95 days and more than 200 witnesses, WA’s trial of the century - the Claremont Serial Killings trial has come to a close, with the defence finishing their closing statement with the words:
“A conviction founded on inadequate evidence would not constitute proper closure".
Using the final day of his closing statements to focus on the fibre case against his client, Paul Yovich put forward a scenario of contamination theory, that Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon could have picked up the same fibres nine months apart through ‘coincidence’.
He also conceded the person who killed Jane also killed Ciara, but that person wasn’t Bradley Edwards.
He also said there’s no evidence that person also abducted and killed Sarah Spiers.
Join Natalie Bonjolo, Tim Clarke and Alison Fan as they discuss the final day of this mammoth trial, and how the victim’s families must be feeling, after the trial of the man accused of the murders more than two decades ago.
