The Claremont serial killings paralysed Perth and sparked one of the biggest murder investigations in Australia's history. The Macro task force was established by police early on in an attempt to solve the mystery .

For more than 19 years, police have been on the hunt for the person responsible for the so-called ‘Claremont killings’, in what has become one of the longest-running and most expensive police investigations in Australian history.

Then, late last year, a breakthrough.

A 48-year-old man named Bradley Robert Edwards was taken into custody and charged with the murder of Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon, after officers from the Tactical Response Group stormed his Kewdale home about 7am on December 22.

Six months after 18-year-old Sarah Spiers vanished in January 1995, another mystery befell Claremont - the disappearance of childcare worker Jane Rimmer.

The 23-year-old was last seen alive outside Club Bay View in the early hours of June 9, after she reportedly declined a friends' offer to share a cab ride home.

She was due to have lunch with her parents that Sunday, but never arrived.

Her body was discovered a month later in Wellard, south of Perth.

Tragically, the horrific discovery was followed by that of the remains of missing lawyer Ciara Glennon in April 1997, the month after she too disappeared following a night out at the Continental Hotel - the same pub in which Rimmer had been drinking prior to her disappearance.

Glennon's body was found in bushland at Eglington in the city's north.

No charges have been laid in relation Spiers' disappearance. A body has never been found. The police investigation is ongoing.

With the discoveries of Glennon and Rimmer's bodies, what had begun as missing person's case, became a suspected serial killing.

Just last year DNA evidence reportedly linked Glennon's killer to an unknown man who had sexually assaulted a teenage girl in 1995. The 17-year-old had been abducted from a Claremont street and driven to Karrakatta Cemetery where she was raped.

Prior to that, among the key pieces of evidence in the case was CCTV footage, released to the public in 2008, showing a man approaching Jane Rimmer as she waited outside the Continental Hotel on the night of her disappearance.

It's unclear whether he was ever identified.

Edwards, who appeared in court on Wednesday, has also been charged with deprivation of liberty, aggravated sexual penetration without consent, break and enter and indecent assault.

West Australian police have identified the victims of these crimes as a 17-year-old who was abducted from Claremont and sexually assaulted in 1995 and an 18-year-old who was indecently assaulted in her own bed in 1998.

The case was adjourned until October.
