A serial killer’s horror collections included homemade sex toys and murder notes found in a garage at his home.
Bradley Robert Edwards, ailing, was convicted of killing Jane Rimmer, 23, and Ciara Glennon, 27, in Claremont, a suburb of Perth, Australia.
Ms. Rimmer and Ms. Glennon went missing between January 1996 and March 1997 with their bodies later found in the bushland.
Edwards, 51, was found guilty more than 20 years after the horrific crimes, but was acquitted of the murder of 18-year-old Sarah Spier, whose body was never found.
Terrible evidence in the case seemed too detrimental for a jury to hear, but has now been released after Edward was convicted.
It contains details of homemade sex toys found in his garage – along with lingerie with cut holes and disruptive scenarios to kidnap, rape, and kill women.
The case also looked at Edwards’ twisted story of sexual deviance, in which he stole women’s underwear from clotheslines when he was younger.
Police also found disturbing evidence on his computer in the same garage – including access to extreme and violent pornography and first-person stories about women who were kidnapped and sexually assaulted.
The stories were titled “Chloe’s Story”, “Sophie’s Story” and “Nicolas Story” and bore a remarkable resemblance to his actual crimes.
“Chloe’s Story” featured a man kidnapping a woman, stripping her clothes, tying her up, and sexually assaulting her.
In “Nicolas Story”, a male narrator was portrayed as “driving around at 2am and kidnapping a visibly drunk 19-year-old”.
Additional evidence police found while analyzing material deleted from Edwards’ devices was the 2002 extreme porn film, Forced entry .
Based on the crimes of the serial killer Richard Ramirez, the so-called “Night Stalker” from the 1980s in California, the rape and murder of women is shown graphically.
The court heard that Ms. Glennon, a 27-year-old attorney, disappeared from Claremont in the early hours of March 15, 1997.
She was hit with an object by Edwards which fractured her skull and “stunned her for a moment”.
Shocking evidence overheard her trying to fend off her attacker, severely damaging her left thumbnail while tearing the tip of her right ring fingernail with Edwards’ DNA.
Edwards then cut her throat and made a 20 cm wound before leaving her body face down in the bushland.
Months later, 23-year-old Ms. Rimmer disappeared from the same part of Claremont and her naked body was found 25 miles south in the bushland by a family picking wild flowers.
Edwards, who will be the subject of a psychiatric report, will be sentenced on December 23.
