Ivan Milat – The Backpacker Murders:
The backpacker murder case in the Belanglo State Forest, south west of Sydney, has entered Australian, and indeed international, criminal folklore. The brutal murders of seven young people, most of them overseas tourists hitchhiking around Australia, attracted world-wide media attention. The remains of their bodies were uncovered in 1992. The arrest and conviction of Ivan Milat would catapult him to become Australia’s worst individual serial killer. It is believed that Milat was involved in several other killings and there is strong evidence that he didn’t act alone. (M)
