Man ordered to face court after 40-storey base jump An accused base-jumper won't confirm or deny if he was one of the four men who leapt from Exchange Tower in Perth's CBD yesterday morning. Bryce Eden, from Scarborough, has been ordered by police to appear in court for trespass. Officers tracked down the 35-year-old after a man was spotted running to a car moments after the base jump. © 9News An accused base-jumper, won't confirm or deny if he was one of the four men who leapt from Exchange Tower in Perth's CBD. When asked by 9News about the incident, he declined to comment. "Can you say if you were there or not?" Mr Eden was asked. "No comment," he replied.

The four deaths occurred within about 30 minutes in a rampage that shocked the city and a nation where such mass killings with guns are rare.

The victims included taxi driver Hassan Baydoun, 33, Nigel Hellings, 75, Michael Sisois, 57, and 52-year-old Rob Courtney.

He is yet to plead guilty or not guilty and is unlikely to do so on Wednesday, which is a procedural preliminary hearing and part of the complex legal process involved in serious criminal charges.
