Shortcut: One of Australia's worst serial rapists was also a WA Police Officer - Part Two

Season 1, Ep. 471

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. 


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.

It was the last time they made contact with the outside world, although it wasn't the last time Libby recorded their surroundings. The girls were reported missing later that afternoon, and community members searched for them through the night. But sadly, their bodies were discovered nearby the following day. in October 2022, a local man was taken into custody. Who is he? Did he know the girls? Is there any truth to the rumors that other people may yet to be charged?

  • 473. Shortcut: The Anglican Paedophile Network of Newcastle

    16:57
    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. Anne Manne is a journalist and social philosopher. Her new book, "Crime of the Cross", is about a paedophile network run by members of the Anglican Church in Newcastle in the 1980s and 1990s.It's made me realise that the shocking details of the crimes committed by the Catholic clergy have almost blinded me to some of the other revelations brought into the light by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse (2013).This story has many similarities to those we've heard of the paedophile priest cluster in Ballarat, and the measures the Catholic Church went to to silence victims and protect offenders. However, there are also many significant differences.We urge you to purchase a copy of Anne Manne's book "Crimes of the Cross", which can be accessed by clicking this link.
