Ivan Milat, aka The Backpacker killer, is Australia’s most notorious serial killer, jailed for life in 1996 for the murder of seven young Australian and international backpackers and the disposal of their bodies in the Belanglo State Forest, 90 minutes south of Sydney.
Now, a year after Milat’s death in a maximum-security prison, Australia’s foremost criminal investigative team set out to prove Milat had many more victims, many more burial grounds, and there are dozens of families who have lost loved ones and need closure.
Criminal psychologist Tim Watson-Munro and Forensic Anthropologist and Criminologist Dr Xanthe Mallet will uncover compelling evidence that 2021 marks the 50th anniversary of the death of Milat’s first victim – and there could be up to two dozen more.
