WA Police Response Regarding Macro Investigation

WA Police – Macro Investigation

Please find below a WA Police response to recent media reports regarding the Macro investigation, which is our Special Crime Squad’s investigation into the murders of Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon, and the disappearance of Sarah Spiers in 1996 and 1997.

“Speculation about operational lines of inquiry with regards to the Macro investigation has the potential to damage the investigation, impact negatively on any future prosecutions and to further traumatise the families of the victims. A major investigation such as this cannot be an ‘open book’, and operational outcomes must be prioritised over media interest.

“Maintaining the operational integrity of this investigation is paramount if we are to bring the offender, or offenders, to justice. It is WA Police policy not to comment about the Macro investigation. However on this occasion police would like to correct reports that number plates captured on video in Claremont on March 14, 1997, were not checked – that is inaccurate.

“WA Police is committed to solving these crimes and has a dedicated team of detectives within the Special Crime Squad utilising the latest investigative techniques and technologies to identify the offender, or offenders.”
