    To be fair in all the Crocs newsletters, I only saw BE mentioned once for his drunken antics whereas I saw other names multiple times (sometimes in the same newsletter!) . Names like "Stalker" and "The Urinator" . Seems it was quite an achievement really in their group to get totally sloshed and BE didn't make the headlines often. He was one of the few probably embarrassed to be named and shamed as that drunk.

    You've read my mind. First victim will be in the direction he lives and is familiar with. It worked so he puts second victim near but not close to the first. She was found and he wanted to draw the attention away from where he lives, hence the next victim found way up north. Sound feasible?

    Ah, so the link could be they were acquaintances of his sister's? Interesting. I wonder if his sister was in any sports clubs?

    BE is not the first person to get sloshed at a wedding.. Serial killers often have normal everyday lives just like everyone else. Not everything they do is somehow suspect or connected to "that part" of them, Most of them have quite compartmentalised lives....Perfectly normal lives most of the time...with a little side gig going on...

    I'm a bit bemused by DNA sampling laws. I thought you would have to give written consent for authorities to take DNA samples. It seems like an invasion of privacy. Insurance companies would love to get hold of everyone's DNA! Its a minefield that we as a society haven't grasped yet, but wait until you try and get health insurance and they (health insurers) know a disease runs in your family.

    I agree, he would of meant 'towards Welshpool', when driving to the city its hard to see the stadium properly, but going east it really does look nest like. I drive on the GFF a bit and I would never refer it as towards the airport, more to the industrial areas (Kewdale, Welshpool) if I had to describe it.

    My point is why bother mentioning where your heading. Why not just say"Gee the new stadium looks such and such" or " hey when you drive past the new stadium doesn't it look such n such"

    He put a lot of thought into everything he wrote online (often editing and adding words that most wouldn't bother) there probably was a reason in his head but I don't see anything in his eagles nest post as cryptic

    I doubt if he was a liney, they didn't usually have cars but worked in teams with small trucks etc. He may have been an exchange/subscriber technician responsible for connecting phone lines to houses/businesses etc. which means he may have frequented exchanges but he wouldn't have "worked" in an exchange unless it was one of the main ones in and around the city.

    What if BE was an umpire for WAFL instead of a player? Or a runner? Or somebody on the periphery of football? Somebody who would have cause to be hanging with the cool players around Claremont?

    I totally agree. He has evolved into the next stage of becoming a serial killer. Kalkatta or whatever it's called, was opportunistic, spur of the moment. Messy so he has to sit down and think about the next one, then wait for the right opportunity. He may not have even needed a badge, just tell a drunk person you are a cop and they might believe you. I myself have done a few very dumb things and gotten myself not some strange situations and I was just lucky.

    For a different Brad Edwards, the facial features look awfully similar to me. He's how I'd expect a younger handsome BRE to look.

    Wouldn't surprise me if both Brad's are blood related.

    If I had the same first and last name and year of birth as an alleged killer, I'd be wanting to get my recent picture and whereabouts and a more detailed past profile on the internet pretty quickly, to give people a hint that we are 2 different people. Particularly if there was a same sport connection between us and we appeared to come from the same Australian City.

    Then again there may be a whole host of personal reasons why the other Brad might prefer not to give himself a public web presence.

    Hi, 1st time poster so apologies if I don't get this right first time.

    I was 22-25 during the time of the murders. I distinctly remember my Dad telling me 'Trust No-one' because he'd read about a football club/team being at the Hotel at the time of JR and CG going missing. His reasoning was 'the murderer could be young'. Dad only read the West Australian and Sunday Times. Our local paper was The Stirling Times but I don't remember him reading that.

    I haven't read every Thread/post but quite a few. I have read some posters saying girls were complacent about the murders until CG. I don't agree with this. As soon as SS went missing my heart was in my mouth. My gut feeling was a serial killer was on the loose. It was horrifying. It was out of the blue and there was nothing to be complacent about. I frequented Claremont when I was 18 and studying around 1990 because I had friends who were from Cottesloe but at the time of the murders wasn't really going out there. Once SS was missing I remember stating 'I'm not going anywhere near Claremont'.
    I have a hazy memory of reading in the media at the time CG had been working o/seas and had not been in Perth long before she was abducted. This is the only reason I can see for her being complacent and walking off alone. The fact she wasn't here when SS and JR were abducted. From memory I'm sure she had only been in Perth for a month but this was a long time ago and details may not be correct?? Has this been brought up previously?

    I have just spoken to someone he worked with. They said he was quite high up in Telstra level 5? And that he was very lazy which used to annoy his co workers

    Just until the next batch of new people come in and don't read the previous posts and start on the bloody nest theory...

    Just about how he was a nice person, always well dressed, ( clean neat tidy) friendly. But not someone you would actually take much notice of. Very shocked to hear this.
