THE sister of Claremont serial killings victim Jane Rimmer was at Stirling Gardens Magistrates Court this morning when Bradley Robert Edwards appeared, accused of the wilful murders of her sister, Ciara Glennon and Sarah Spiers.

Lee Rimmer, who lives in the state’s South-West, broke her silence about the impact the murders had on her family to Community News on January 23 2017, saying she was haunted every single day by the murder of her “baby sister”.

Ms Rimmer wanted to see the face of the man accused of murdering Jane.

“I want to be in court so I can actually get some closure,” she said.

“I also hope the Spiers family finally get to know where their daughter is.”

Last Thursday Mr Edwards was charged with the wilful murder Sarah Spiers after she disappeared on January 27, 1996 after a night out in Claremont.

He had been previously charged with the wilful murders of Ms Rimmer and Ms Glennon after they were found dead after disappearing from Claremont in 1996 and 1997 respectively.

Mr Edwards is also charged with two other attacks on young women – a 17-year-old in Claremont in 1995, and an 18-year-old in Huntingdale in 1988.

January 27 marked the 22nd anniversary of the disappearance of Sarah Spiers.
