Claremont serial killings trial podcast: ‘The Missing Exhibit’
- RECAP: A ‘misplaced fibre’ and fingernail sample scrutinised
- Shock revelation as cop reveals fibre evidence ‘gone’
- How crucial fingernail evidence was collected by police
The forensic officer who was involved with the collection of what is now seen as key pieces of evidence for the prosecution has revealed one of those pieces of evidence mysteriously disappeared after it was stored for the weekend at Police Headquaters after Ciara Glennon’s autopsy.
Sgt Adam McCulloch, who was in his second day of testimony, told the court a white fibre labelled AJM23 - collected during a Polilight exam on Ciara Glennon’s body - was missing.
It’s unknown, and will probably never be known the importance, if any, this fibre would have played in the trial.
Tim Clarke and Emily Moulton discuss this evidence, and more on questions surrounding Sgt McCulloch’s exhibit labelling and the sealing of samples using proper procedure on Day 30 of the Claremont serial killings trial.
