Telstra employees were somewhat considered vetted by the public of the time due to their government employment. This may have been the catalyst for some of the girls entering a vehicle initially, letting their guard down with the thought Telecom workers were subject to some security compliance in government.Also, if BRE had a spent conviction and the Hollywood Hospital attack, was not reported in the media or widely known of within Telstra (if at all), then BRE and his physical and network access to Telstra systems and Networks, and his clients systems and networks, (particularly in the Australian Mission Critical Resources Industry) would have (or should have) been regarded as a high local, state and national security risk.
Same goes for those that knew of the accused's alleged Huntingdale teenage crimes and the rest of his alleged crimes (murder/rape etc).
Telstra Stores Depot was at Miles St Kewdale, next door to the Telstra Depot on Kewdale Rd where the Technicians were based.Maybe it was considered a mental health issue which meant someone had enough pull with police to convert it to psychiatric intervention?
Shifting to stores meant someone was based at say the telephone exchange looking after the stock orders until it was safe to put the employee out on the road again beyond some informal parole?
I would be interested to see who was in charge of all the video camera system implementation of the investigation and any listening equipment used to listen into LW? One listening system burst through Lances work ceiling.
Be mindful Telecom was a full government department and often government employees liased with police on some matters, especially Telecom that had other security systems linked to government and the likes.
Police were in the scout hall on Eric st I think. Not far from the local telephone exchange a kilometre away.
From a practical perspective, you’d hope the police would informally inform or inadvertently inform the employer through investigation process. Such as a request to meet the superiors and say “can you tell me about BRE......have you noted any behavioural changes leading up to the assault, sexual assault?”Not even (contacting the employer) when the crime is committed by someone whilst they are at work, during their work hours, on their work premises, or their clients work premises?
Surely they can inform the employer, in the process of confirming with his employer, Telecom/Telstra, that the assault occurred on the job.
Or did they not bother contacting Telecom/Telstra if Hollywood Hospital confirmed with them that BRE was working for Telstra at the time and minutes of the assault and was legitimately on the premises and not trespassing too?
The timelines for when working at the Stirling highway, Cottesloe exchange will be interesting. If someone was over at Miles road, then trouble in Claremont might of stalled?Unless he borrowed someone else's equipment or logins.
How much access did your friend have say to exchange doorways?Telstra Stores Depot was at Miles St Kewdale, next door to the Telstra Depot on Kewdale Rd where the Technicians were based.
No one was based at exchanges.
Even technicians only attended an exchange if the task or breakdown required it.
My old school friend for instance told me that the longest task he ever had at an exchange was when Telstra changed all the decadic switching gear over to Pulse switching.
It took them two weeks to convert the Cannington exchange, and about the same to do the Waroona exchange. I believe that was around 2000 though.
I said 91, but it was probably 90. I think I heard my old school friend say the accused was transferred to Stores for six months, but his knowledge is only hearsay from a phone call to a source in the Emergency breakdown Team, who wasn't in the PABX Team when this event occurred. Maybe some in the PABX Team, other than the Team leader knew, but the source knew nothing about it. It might of been passed off as a downturn in PABX work to explain his shift to Stores amongst direct colleagues.
Working at Stores in Miles Rd Kewdale certainly would mean absolutely no customer interaction, and certainly no access to any operating telephone communications equipment.
No idea, never discussed that. However he did mention decades ago, that technicians had a master keys to phone boxes, and one of his then colleagues got sprung pinching money from the coin boxes at the bank of phone boxes outside Cafe Affaire.How much access did your friend have say to exchange doorways?
Why have media made mention that he worked at that particular exchange?
"said Mr Edwards had worked at the Cottesloe telephone exchange in ... "
You said Ewing St? WAIT university, Centenary drive. Familiar ground isn't it. 19 in 1988?My mistake. Telstra technicians might've been still at Ewing St Bentley in 1990.
I think I remember asking my old school friend when Telstra moved to Kewdale Rd, Kewdale, and being told it wasn't until 1992. The Stores Depot on Miles Rd might be older though.
you are talking about the other sleuthing site (the us one) that allowed endless discussion about the csk murders for many years - there were many posters pre and post arrest that were saying some very odd things and had a lot of bizaro at times heated exchanges - not stuff the average internet forum joe or jane would say or do - the real identities of those are very interesting given who they are connected with - you can take that to the bankYeh. yeh. Thanks, Good but didn't really need it-if the Badger says it, you can generally take it to the bank. Now what is interesting getting back to what i was yapping about- pre arrest when the heat started to become apparent to a very interesting online poster pre arrest , (and it became obvious that he had drawn the attention of some very powerfuli, well resourced individuals ,) this bloke started saying that other people living in his house had access to his computer and he didn't write all of his posts. Just like the sharpener is apparently claiming.
Now why would your average internet forum Joe go to those lengths .?
If he had nothing to be worried about, he wouldn't give a toss . Hey.
Unless it was dawning on him the possible repercussions of what was written,,,,, Hmmmm....Halal style.......losing my eyesight...Spectacles ,Spectacles,...where are my Spectacles........?
In 1988, the accused might've been in his final year at the Telecom Technician College on the corner of Ley St and Manning Rd, Como. Centenary Ave would've been on the route to Huntingdale prior to the Mount Henry Bridge being built. So he'd be familiar with the area of Dorothy's disposal site I'd guess, but then again so would a lot of other people. It's not hard evidence to support suspicion. Motor vehicle licensing records would've been searched no doubt and if such a vehicle was listed, I'd imagine it would've been mentioned at PTC.
Only further corroborating evidence and timelines will add to the possibility.

"Mr Edwards, in 1990, was working at Hollywood Hospital as a Telstra contractor when he attempted to drag a woman from her desk into a toilet block. "I doubt BRE would have told anybody about his 1990 Hollywood Hospital "common assault" conviction.
WAPOL would have been satisfied with BRE Guilty plea - case closed. Heck - BRE probably took a Sick Day to attend court. No employer/family would be the wiser IMHO. BRE "could" certainly have kept a lid on it and downplayed the whole scenario "I shoved her" etc.
In 1990 when my boss was caught Drunk Driving - he gave me his company car to collect him to and from work for 6 months. Management never knew.
An interesting point. Protecting the institution itself. That could have repercussions if it is found to be the case, much like the church trying to protect itself by keeping matters hush hush. Telstra being a commercial 'corporation' has further implications.nobody wanted to risk the sale of Telecom & the money it would bring in. Makes you wonder if someone in the government wanted it kept quite as to not jeopardize the sale. Maybe it wasn't Telstra CEO's after all
I hear you but feel that's a stretch.nobody wanted to risk the sale of Telecom & the money it would bring in. Makes you wonder if someone in the government wanted it kept quite as to not jeopardize the sale. Maybe it wasn't Telstra CEO's after all
100% re spent convictions.In speaking to a lawyer, sometimes if a conviction might put employment at risk, a spent conviction might happen so it doesn't have a major adverse impact on someone's life who might pull their head in. In this case, a security breach might have ended his career? At the time, certain criminal convictions might have impacted Telecom employment in a government department because the employment meshed with government security.
When you consider the potential to intersect peoples communications at different levels, not excluding police communications, one could see how this may have cost him his job, hence the alleged benching in stores.
This sounded like it came with some pretty heavy conditions with it such as psychiatric visits etc?
