THE MILAT MURDERS
IVAN Milat is serving seven consecutive life sentences plus 18 years without parole in Goulburn’s Supermax for the brutal murder of seven backpackers and the attempted abduction of another.
Their bodies were found in Belanglo State Forest in between 1992 and 1993, stabbed and shot multiple times, and Milat was arrested in 1994. It is believed there are more victims.
NSW Police have agreed to look into recent revelations about the shooting of taxi driver Neville Knight in Sydney’s west after new evidence aired by Sunday Night strongly suggested it was committed by Milat. Fuelled by continued public interest in the Milat story, the revelations delivered the current affairs show a rare ratings win over rival 60 Minutes.
