The voice of Sarah Spiers haunted the court as her final phone call, a call to a taxi service was played during evidence on day nine.
Sarah Spiers was last seen in the early hours of January 27, 1996. She was out with friends at Club Bay View, and just after 2am decided to go leave. Alone. She called a taxi to take her to Mosman Park, but she never got there.
Today, we heard from one of those friends she was out with that night, recalling the final words she ever said to her friend.
The prosecution say, instead of getting home in a taxi, Bradley Edwards picked her up and murdered her.
The court heard from three people who heard screams in Mosman Park at around 3am that night, describing the ‘blood curdling screams’ that have stayed with them for more than two decades.
It was a highly emotional day, with a statement read out from Sarah’s sister Amanda, a court room in tears and a witness consoled as she left the stand after giving her evidence.
Justice Hall said he has decided not to release Sarah’s last phone call to the public, because he believed it would cause undue stress to her family. The West’s Legal Affairs Editor Tim Clarke was in court and describes the the moment her voice was played for the second time in this trial.
