More than two decades after the lives of Ciara Glennon and Jane Rimmer were cruelly taken, their families have finally received justice.
Bradley Robert Edwards, 51, was today found guilty of murdering the two women, who vanished from the affluent Perth suburb of Claremont in the mid-1990s.
The former Little Athletics coach and Telstra technician was, however, acquitted of killing 18-year-old Sarah Spiers, who also disappeared from the area around the same time.
Delivering the long-awaited verdict in Western Australia's Supreme Court, Justice Stephen Hall concluded that Spiers was likely murdered but said that, without forensic evidence, it could not be proven beyond reasonable doubt.
