    Prime Suspect

    Sydney Morning Herald - Saturday November 28, 1998

    Several months later, Lance took a lie detector test - conducted by a retired FBI agent - and gave urine and blood samples for DNA testing.

    Police are refusing to release any information on the results of the tests but it is believed that scientists have been unable to match it with any DNA found on the two dead women.

    Dave Barclay Interview

    PROGRAM TRANSCRIPT: Thursday, 3 August , 2006

    http://www.abc.net.au/austory/content/2006/s1704843.htm

    Excerpt below..continued at link

    Well I've been a forensic scientist for 35 years and I gradually moved over into a specialism whereby I was investigating cold cases and supplying support from the centre in the UK to forces all across the country. We have a central unit in the UK called the National Crime Faculty, which includes behavioural psychologists, forensic scientists like myself, pathologists, and crime pattern analysts, and we all get together and work in a sort of integrated way and I was the head of the physical evidence team of that unit.

    Physical evidence is anything that is physically left at the crime scene, and that includes pathology, fingerprints, blood like DNA and interpretations of those, so blood pattern analysis and so on. So really any observation, interpretation or physical thing that's left at the crime scene that might be associated with either the offender or the sequence of events.

    I've been to Australia 2 or 3 times. I've assisted in reviewing some cases in Canberra and also I was over here about 15 months ago in Perth, helping with a review of the Claremont killings.

    As far as the Claremont killings go, they were over quite a long period of time and they also were a few years ago. So what happened at the start of those analyses doesn't really represent what goes on now. They developed in a kind of sequential way. When we're doing the review, of course, we're looking at everything. And what I think was particularly good about it was that nearly all the physical items were still there and intact and able to be analysed again which is part of the review process. But I was slightly concerned about the way forensic science in Western Australia was actually organised. Not so much the individual scientists, but they weren't integrated as closely with the investigative process as they are now in the UK and perhaps are beginning to be in the United States.

    It's a system which has opportunities therefore for things to get missed. For observations to be made in one lab, which are very trivial, but are very important to another laboratory or to the investigators. And because it involves work at different laboratories, it's very difficult to get those threads knotted together in Western Australia.

    Serial Murder
    https://www.fbi.gov/stats-services/p.../serial-murder

    Excerpt:

    Myth: Serial killers cannot stop killing.

    It has been widely believed that once serial killers start killing, they cannot stop. There are, however, some serial killers who stop murdering altogether before being caught. In these instances, there are events or circumstances in offenders’ lives that inhibit them from pursuing more victims. These can include increased participation in family activities, sexual substitution, and other diversions.

    Experts play down expectations in serial killer probe
    Read more: http://www.abc.net.au/pm/content/2004/s1239582.htm

    Transcript: Tuesday, 9 November, 2004

    DAVID WEBER: The panel has now started its review into the disappearance of Sarah Spiers and the murders of Ciara Glennon and Jane Rimmer.

    Those on the panel can boast decades of experience in murder investigations around the world forensic experts from the UK, a criminal profiler from the US and a detective from New South Wales.

    Superintendent Paul Schramm is heading the inquiry. He led the investigation into the Snowtown murders. Superintendent Schramm says that sometimes a fresh pair of eyes is the greatest advantage.

    PAUL SCHRAMM: None of us have any in-depth knowledge of it, and I think that's important, and that will unfold in a structured way over the next several weeks, and then we will set our own direction.

    The Courage of our Convictions - The Claremont Serial Killer
    http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/...202#transcript

    Sunday 25 June 2000

    Excerpt:

    Back on the Gold Coast at Bond University, Paul Wilson's colleague, criminologist Wayne Petherick, provides an insight into the FBI profiling philosophy.

    He's reading from the FBI textbook definition of an organised killer, which closely reflects the profile details publicised by the West Australian police in the Claremont case.

    Wayne Petherick: The determination of an organised crime scene is made based on the fact the offence is usually pre-planned, the victim is a targeted stranger, they tend to personalise the victim, they use controlled conversation, the crime scene reflects an overall theme of control or organisation; they demand a submissive victim, they use restraints, there's aggressive acts prior to death, the body is hidden, the weapon or evidence is absent and they usually transport the victim or body, so what that would imply is that there's usually a primary crime scene, followed up by some either secondary or peripheral crime scenes, or perhaps dump sites.

    Gerald Tooth: And then what assumptions are made about what type of person would commit a crime like that?

    Wayne Petherick: OK, well once the determination of the crime scene is made, generally they will go across to the offender characteristics. It would then be assumed that the offender has average to above-average intelligence, they are socially competent, they prefer skilled work, they're sexually competent, they have higher birth order, their father's work is stable though they had some inconsistent childhood discipline, they have a controlled mood during the crime, they may use alcohol or drugs with the crime, they usually operate according to some precipitating situational stress, so that could be a fight with a partner, loss of a job, loss of some money gambling, they generally live with a partner, they have a mobility, generally speaking a car that's kept in good condition, and they will follow the crime in the news and the media, and they may change jobs or leave town.

    Gerald Tooth: With that last characteristic, can you explain how that has been significant in the Claremont investigation?

    Wayne Petherick: It would appear that the media has been used in a certain way, whether it be to goad the offender, try to bring the offender out, try to initiate some kind of behaviour on the part of the offender, through using the media, because it is assumed that the organised offender will follow the crime in the news and media. So what they are hoping is that he is following what they're saying, and may act or react in some way to the information they're giving.
