CLAREMONT: The Claremont Serial Killings

CLAREMONT: The Claremont Serial Killings

Published by: The West Australian
21 Episodes | First Released: Feb 27 '19 | 🇦🇺
Three young women, all missing from the same place, all the victims of a killer stalking the quiet streets. This is the true story of the Claremont Serial Killings. Claremont: A well-to-do suburb of big homes, imported cars, highly-educated professionals and prestigious private schools. Where residents live in luxury between the majestic Swan River and the glaring blue Indian Ocean that wrap around the city of Perth on the Western edge of Australia. High salaries, no crime to speak of, barely a care in the world. Claremont is a lovely place to live. In Perth, it’s the place to live. There is really only one pub to speak of in Claremont. And one nightclub, about 150m away down a street lined with boutique shops. The nightspots are a magnet for university students and young professionals looking to have fun. Everyone knows everyone, or at least someone who knows them. In Claremont, there are barely two degrees of separation. On January 26, 1996, Sarah Spiers headed to Claremont for a night out with friends. Aged 18, she left the nightclub in the early hours and called a taxi from a payphone. The taxi arrived minutes later. But Sarah wasn’t there. Her disappearance left her family and friends distraught and an entire city wondering. What happened to that smiling, blonde country girl? People don’t just vanish from Claremont. Less than six months later, Jane Rimmer was out, also in Claremont, also with friends, also blonde and smiling. That smile was evident on CCTV captured inside the hotel that night. Those grainy frames showed the 23-year-old walking through the crowded bar area. The tape recording cuts away to another camera. When it cut back, Jane was gone. Two young women missing in similar circumstances from the same location. Police began to worry they were dealing with a serial killer. When Jane’s body was found in bushland two months later, their worst fears were realised. Nine months on and Ciara Glennon, a 27-year-old lawyer, was out with work colleagues for a drink. Smart, professional and universally liked, she too vanished. Three weeks later, her body was found, also dumped in bushland. Three young women, all missing from the same place, all the victims of a killer stalking the quiet streets. This is the true story of the Claremont Serial Killings.

These so called "commentators" are why we need suppression order in Australia. Muck raking garage. Journalism in Australia goes further down the toilet, thanks to these brats.

The level of fake censerity is enough to make you vomit. Profit is the end game with these amateurs lining there pockets off the suffering of others. Pay cheques whilst attempting empathy?? If these fools where empathetic why do think its a good idea to appeal the judges decision to suppress evidence that would be behond difficult for the victims families??? The muck raking kids appeal the judges decision, no credibility with this A1 garbage.

Brilliant

From a WA resident who has read every news snippet over the years and a book on the subject prior to the arrest, I still found Gary’s podcast fascinating.

Skip.

Two episodes in and so far so many missed opportunities to hear from female voices about the gendered violence that affects them daily, then and now. Instead, this is a whole lot of old men commenting on what it was like to be a young woman in Perth in the 90s.

Had to stop listening

This is one of the worst podcasts I’ve listened to. I had to stop listening. Seriously, out of absolutely anyone; you get Basil Zempilas?! Tabloidy style Podcast to fit your Tabloid style paper.

Omg.

In reference to “the wrong man” Alison Fan...you are a disgrace. You are obviously bias to the nth degree and was only satisfying your bias beliefs as well as compensating for your diminishing career. I switched off the podcast with 18 minutes remaining as I was unable to listen to her revolting questioning anymore. You vile woman.

Not bad!

This wasn’t a bad podcast, it just didn’t go in depth enough for my liking.

Piss weak

Don’t bother listening - 2nd rate indeed. If you can interview breathy Basil Zempilas and cold calling Alison Fan then why not mention why Dave Caporn was removed as head of the Macro Taskforce and is no longer in the police force? Why not update the latest trial date? For those outside of WA and Australia the July date has been vacated and a new date in November 2019 has been fixed. Grrrrrr

Cancelled?

An episode roughly every week times four, then nothing for three months now. They could at least do a short episode notifying us that it’s been cancelled. Disappointing and unprofessional.

Peculiar presentation

I am not sure what the thought was in regards to telling you from the beginning who is eventually charged. I am from the states so this is not a familiar story. Had the story been presented like most podcasts, like waiting until the end to give you the conclusion, it would have been much better.

Episode 4 is worth a listen

Episode 4 was by far the best and really helped me to understand the upcoming prosecution. So hang in for that even if the earlier episodes are somewhat underwhelming. I am looking forward to their coverage of the case.

Too much fluff

Casefile did this case (case 30) in 55 mins and it was perfect. You guys should take note of what they are doing, you don’t need so many describing words!

Such dry and flat storytelling

I feel this podcast needs a GREAT editor, to help shape some sort of pacing. The bulk of the episodes are just unedited interviews without decent summarizing or analysis, or background for other local cases that the audience wouldn’t know about. Host/creator/reporter must be ruthless in editing and shaping their interviews and sound bites into a compelling story and timeline. Don’t be afraid to over-explain and repeat in a voiceover because when it’s only audio the audience needs frequent signposts for who/what/where/when.

A Little Too Tabloid Style

I have to say that this entire podcast could have been presented in half the time.It comes across as a little too much tabloid newspaper/commercial TV style for me. Do you really need to define the victims as “beautiful”young women”??? That’s unnecessary. Not to mention name dropping of other journos, tV and radio presenters just to plug the TV station.Can’t compare it to the superbly done Australian’s -The Teachers Pet and a few more.Shame as this story could have been done so much better.

Too slow

The information and content is interesting but there are so many pauses and delays due to added in audio snippets to set the scene and clips of the theme tune

Interesting but slow paced

This was interesting, but really the same could have been said in half the time. The same music theme was played throughout the podcast every few minutes which was quite annoying!

Not a patch

After listening to similar podcasts such as Teacher’s Pet, I was expecting quality. Unfortunately I found this to be an amateur opinion piece.

Boring!

The only reason I am still listening is because I’m from Perth. Content moves way too fast between the episodes, and seriously, why can’t you just sum up what the judge said in layman’s terms instead of reading out paragraphs from the statute?
