Notorious Murderer And Rapist Known As 'Mr Stinky' To Be Sentenced

A notorious murderer and rapist known as "Mr Stinky" is set to be sentenced for sexually assaulting nine Melbourne women decades ago.

Raymond Edmunds snuck into his victims' homes during the 1970s and 1980s, sometimes wearing a mask and threatening them with a knife.

In one case in 1977, he told a woman he just wanted to "make love," had been watching her for two weeks and knew her children were in their bedrooms.

Now 75, Edmunds has pleaded guilty to 10 charges including rape, indecent assault and false imprisonment over the attacks across the suburbs of Greensborough, Wheelers Hill, Edithvale and Donvale between 1971 and 1984.

He is also serving lengthy jail terms for a series of other rapes and attempted rapes between and 1960s and 1980s, which led to him being dubbed the Donvale Rapist and given the moniker Mr Stinky because of the offensive body odour reported by his victims.

Edmunds is due to be sentenced for his latest crimes in Victoria's County Court on Thursday.
