MESSAGES between two women charged with murdering autistic Perth teenager Aaron Pajich culminated in the youngest saying she couldn’t rest until a victim’s blood was “gushing out and pooling on the floor”.
Trudi Lenon, 43, and Jemma Lilley, 26, who respectively went by the names “Corvina” and “SOS” in messages to each other, had been friends for about four months when they allegedly killed the 18-year-old at their Orelia home in June last year.
Lenon wrote in a message to serial killer-obsessed Lilley about two months before the crime that the women would be “history making”, the WA Supreme Court heard on Wednesday.
“Profiling techniques will be re-written to accommodate SOS,” Lenon wrote, admiringly describing her co-accused as a “genuine psychopath of immense control and power”.
The court also heard a long message Lilley allegedly sent to Lenon 13 days before the murder.
“I feel as though I cannot rest until the blood or the flesh of a screaming, pleading victim is gushing out and pooling on the floor, until all the roads and streets are streamed red and abandoned, and the fear in the back of everyone’s minds and on the tongue of each human that’s left standing is SOS.
“I cannot shift this belief that the world has become not only ready for me, it needs me to be ready.”
Lenon replied: “It’s definitely time. I am ready. You are ready”.
The court heard all phone calls and messages between the women after that had been permanently deleted.
Earlier messages included comments by Lenon about how she would serve SOS as a servant and pass on her “legacy”.
“Corvina will be there to assist. This will all be about SOS the first time,” one message read.
Another read: “I fear SOS. The intensity coming from you is both unnerving but also addictive”.
Lenon also wrote: “Through you, I am becoming aware of my own darkness.
“Even writing this is highly erotic.
“You allow me to explore Corvina.”
The messages were read out to Lenon in her third interview with police at Bandyup Prison and she insisted the pair were in character.
“It’s just a bunch of words,” she told detectives.
The court previously heard SOS was the main character in a book Lilley wrote about serial killing and was the password for her video store account, standing for Son of Sam.
She also had it emblazoned on a leather jacket and on the licence plate of a motorcycle, and tattooed it on Lenon’s forearm the night before police swooped on the property, where Mr Pajich was found buried in the backyard, covered with concrete and tiles.
Lenon said Corvina was a name she used when she was a submissive participant in bondage, discipline and sado-masochistic role playing.
She has admitted being an accessory to murder, which prosecutors rejected, while Lilley denies any involvement.
