In March 1997, Ciara Glennon allegedly became Mr Edward’s third victim when he took her from Claremont after a night out, and murdered her.
Her body was found in a “strikingly similar” way to Ms Rimmer’s in bushland in Eglinton.
Her cause of death was determined to be a cut to the throat.
The state claims DNA found under the 27-year-old’s fingernails matched Mr Edwards'. It also alleges Mr Edwards did not show up to his friend's Dawesville house that evening, as planned.
“The accused was expected to spend the night with friends, but failed to arrive until mid-morning on 15 March, 1997,” Ms Barbagallo said.
“His stated excuse for his late arrival was that he was trying to reconcile with his first wife.
“That was a lie.”

Fingerprints, foot impressions: Further proposed evidence emerges in Claremont serial killer case

"The state also alleges foot impressions were found at the same Huntingdale home.

“It was found that he (Mr Edwards) could not be excluded from making those foot impressions,” Ms Barbagallo alleges. (1988)
The court was told earlier on Tuesday that Mr Edwards’ fingerprints were lodged into a database in 1990, after he assaulted a social worker at Hollywood Hospital, an offence to which he pleaded guilty to and received two years probation."

On one occasion on February 11, 1988, a man was disturbed at the rear door of a property.
Witnesses said this person was wearing what looked like a dressing gown.
Four prints, either from fingers or the palm, were found at the rear sliding door of the home by police.
The state alleges in December 2016, three of these prints matched Bradley Edwards.
The state also alleges foot impressions were found at the same Huntingdale home.

"Alleged Claremont serial killer Bradley Robert Edwards is believed to have self-harmed in a prison shower block this week and is now being watched 24 hours a day at the maximum-security Casuarina prison."

"A Department of Justice spokeswoman said yesterday that Mr Edwards had refused to tell prison authorities how he got the injuries and that he would not be returning to Hakea. “Mr Edwards is under a protection regime which includes constant surveillance while an assessment is made to determine his future needs,” she said."

In another alleged incident, a sole male in a white car with a Telstra logo stopped and stared at two women waiting for a taxi, before driving away.

It was also revealed Mr Edwards had a conviction for attacking a woman in 1990, in what was labelled "the Hollywood hospital" evidence.

The court heard he was working at the hospital as a Telstra technician and attacked a 21-year-old social worker as she sat in a chair.

He tried to put a piece of material in her mouth but she kicked him and managed to break free, before cable ties were later found in his pocket.

Ms Barbagallo said Mr Edwards was convicted of common assault and sentenced to two years' probation.

The prosecutor mentioned certain “violent erotica” documents, called “Chloe’s story”, “Sophie’s story” and “Nicola’s story”, that Mr Edwards is alleged to have possessed, authored or contributed to.

“Chloe’s story”, Ms Barbagallo says, depicts a man abducting a woman, stripping her of her clothes, binding her and sexually assaulting her. The prosecutor said this story had “marked similarities” to the 1995 Karrakatta abduction and rape of which Mr Edwards is accused.

She also said “Nicola’s story” had a male narrator who was portrayed as “driving around 2am and abducting a visibly drunk 19-year-old”.

“The content of (these stories) is unusual and depraved, that the idea that somebody that’s arrested and charged in respect of these matters is ultimately found to have stories that are similar ... to some of the activities that we say he has engaged in is quite striking,” Ms Barbagallo said.

She could not confirm with Justice Stephen Hall when the stories were first created or downloaded but said modifications were made to them between July 17, 2014 and December 11, 2016 — the latter just 11 days before he was arrested at his Kewdale home.

Authorities were last night refusing to explain how the accused Claremont serial killer ended up with potentially fatal stab wounds while under guard awaiting Australia’s most complex murder trial.

The West Australian can reveal that Bradley Edwards’ wounds ahead of the first day of his pre-trial court hearings were a result of him inserting a pencil into his ear. Premier Mark McGowan was unable to give answers on why security surrounding such a notorious inmate was so careless.

Alleged Claremont serial killer Bradley Robert Edwards is believed to have self-harmed in a prison shower block this week and is now being watched 24 hours a day at the maximum-security Casuarina prison.

The West Australian understands authorities believe Mr Edwards stuck a pencil in his own ear before a prison officer found him injured and bleeding in Hakea Prison on Monday.

"The court heard the story, which was first accessed in December 2015, started with the narrator saying:
"They say you always remember your first, I remember my first as being Chloe.".


Court told 'prison call' discussed stories

"It is alleged Mr Edwards may have authored the stories, which the court also heard had been referred to in "a prison call" made after one of his earlier court appearances where they were discussed."

"Accused Claremont serial killer Bradley Robert Edwards lived with his cheating first wife and the man she was having an affair with about the time he allegedly raped a woman at Karrakatta Cemetery, the WA Supreme Court was told yesterday."

"Ms Barbagallo said that when the woman became embroiled in an affair with another man in 1994, her lover moved into the matrimonial home with her and her husband in January or February 1995."

"Defence barrister Paul Yovich said there was no proof Mr Edwards knew his wife was having an affair with his flatmate when he moved in.
“He had him moved in some time in 1995 — estimates vary — at the invitation of both the accused’s wife and the accused,” Mr Yovich said.

First were four latent fingerprints found on the door of the Huntingdale house it is alleged Mr Edwards had tried to break into in 1988. Days later, he is said to have left a semen-stained kimono during another burglary, during which he attacked a young girl.

In 1990, he admitted attacking a social worker at Hollywood Hospital, which prompted his fingerprints to be entered in the national database — and eventually linked him to the Huntingdale incidents.
In early 1995, during the rape of a woman at Karrakatta cemetery, Mr Edwards is said to have left his DNA inside his victim. And in 1997, during a post-mortem examination of Ms Glennon’s body, Mr Edwards’ DNA was allegedly found under her broken fingernail.

"The Claremont serial killings happened around the time the accused was experiencing emotional upheaval after his wife left him and fell pregnant to another man, the WA Supreme Court has been told.

Lead prosecutor Carmel Barbagallo told the court this afternoon that around the time of the Karrakatta rape in February 1995, accused killer Bradley Robert Edwards’ first marriage was disintegrating after learning his then-wife was having an extra-marital affair.

When Sarah Spiers disappeared in January 1996, the marriage was over and Mr Edwards’ wife had moved out of the marital home, Ms Barbagallo said, adding that during the timeline covering all three alleged murders Mr Edwards was living alone in his former marital home."
