  • 470. One of Australia's worst serial rapists was also a WA Police Officer - Part Two

    43:13
    Adrian Trevor Moore is one of Australia's worst rapists, and also a former member of the WA Police.In 2018, investigators began contacting women to tell them that Moore had used the police computer system to run background checks on them. This lead to accusations of predatory behaviour, and eventually a warrant was executed on his home which uncovered a trove of photographs and videos of him sexually abusing heavily sedated women.Over 200 individual women were featured in that material. One of those women, Josie, is today's guest on Australian True Crime.In episode #460 of Australian True Crime, we interviewed Nicole Edwards, a former WA Police Officer who is also a survivor of Adrian Trevor Moore.Like Nicole, Josie is critical of WA Police's decision to have the case investigated initially (and for some years) by Internal Affairs, rather than the Sex Crimes unit, and she's joined Nicole's campaign calling for a thorough external enquiry into the handling of the case.For Support: Lifeline  on 13 11 1413 YARN on 13 92 76 (24/7 crisis support phone line for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples)1800RESPECT: 1800 737 732CREDITS:Host: Meshel Laurie.

  • 469. Shortcut: The Stabbing of Angus Beaumont

    17:12
    This is a "Shortcut" episode. It’s a shortened version of this week’s more detailed full episode, which is also available on our feed. Our guest today is Michelle Liddle. In February this year, she watched for the second time as two teenagers fought for their freedom after taking the life of her fifteen year old son, Angus Beaumont, in a Brisbane park in 2020. They were aged just 13 and 14 at the time of the lethal stabbing. One was on bail for armed robbery and the other was on probation.They both had significant histories of violent assaults. But even though Angus's final moments were captured on CCTV, the boys successfully appealed their initial convictions for his stabbing death and won a retrial. That judge only trial began in December 2023 and ended with one of the boys being found guilty of murder and the other guilty of manslaughter. They were sentenced to nine years and six years respectively.However, each of them is expected to serve around half of those sentences.

Shaking off her convict roots and making her mark on the world stage as a prosperous European-inspired capital.She could still be pretty inhospitable though, for anyone who didn't fit the mould...Michael Adams' 4-part series on Edward Feeney and Charles Marks, and all of his other episodes of "Forgotten Australia", can be found wherever you get your podcasts.
