An episode of Crime Investigation Australia which triggered media debate in Western Australia recently, is set to air on Channel Nine this month.
The Claremont Murders begins with the disappearance of 18-year-old secretary Sarah Spiers from a nightclub in the up-market Perth suburb of Claremont on Australia Day, 1996. Two women’s bodies were discovered in bushland and a third has never been found. So far, no arrests have been made.
CCTV footage shows murder victim Jane Rimmer being approached by a man outside the Continental Hotel in Claremont on the night she was killed in 1996. The footage was withheld for 12 years before being released to the public last month. It was only released by police just prior to its screening on the Crime & Investigation show.
The episode also includes re-enactment, interviews with family, friends, witnesses and the officer in charge of the current investigation.
The episode will air on Nine at 8:30pm Thursday November 27th.
