Is Bradley Robert Edwards guilty or not guilty?
Only one person knows what the answer to that question is, and he’s taken 12 weeks to make it.
But on Thursday September 24, the world will find out.
Justice Stephen Hall has the weight of two decades of fear, mystery and grief on his shoulders, and in a week, he’ll have eyes of West Australians on him.
Claremont In Conversation is back with the biggest moments of the trial of the century, a week out from the verdict.
In this bonus episode, Tim Clarke says he’s nervous and it’s understandable why.
A lot of people close to, or invested in this trial are also nervous, because in a week’s time, West Australians will find out if the man standing trial for the last seven months is the Claremont Serial Killer.
But it represents much more than a seven-month trial. As we’ve found out over the course of the last few months, the Claremont Serial Killings case never went cold. Police, families and scientists have been working on the case for the last 24 years.
It was a trial that was so important, not even a global pandemic could stop it, a trial that will literally stop traffic, when road works going on outside the court will stop for day.
Join Natalie Bonjolo, Tim Clarke and Alison Fan as they take you through what to expect next week and what it will mean for judicial history after it’s all over.
