The Claremont Murders

Everything you need to know about Channel 7’s The Claremont Murders

The two-part series is based on Australia's longest-running manhunt.

When young women started going missing from the affluent Perth suburb of Claremont in the 1990s, it sent shockwaves throughout Australia.

Sarah Spiers, 18, Jane Rimmer, 23, and Ciara Glennon, 27, went missing within less than two years of each other, launching Australia’s longest-running, biggest and most expensive manhunt.

26 years after the first abduction, Seven is releasing The Claremont Murders – a two-part series that follows the police investigation and twists and turns that brought a serial killer to justice.

Is The Claremont Murders a true story?
