Even today it is difficult to pursuade battered women that they are not to blame for their husbands’ brutality. It was so – yet the degree of blame the brutalised wife took upon herself in our Northampton Horror story, almost defies belief. Her neighbours tried to fathom it, and concluded that for her, violence was an aphrodisiac. Yet even her dying words, witnessed by a horrified neighbour, were a plea for forgiveness…
Not until a second pair of bodies were discovered in Belanglo State Forest could Australian police be certain beyond doubt that a serial killer had been at large picking off backpacking tourists since 1989. Then the biggest manhunt ever known was launched, and because seven of the victims were from various parts of the world the case became of international interest. Ivan Milat, the killer who has just been given seven life sentences, was convicted after a wealth of evidence against him was presented to the court. Yet he might still be at large for but a young Englishman’s long-distance phone call…The Backpacker Murders teLls the fully story – finding and identifying the bodies, the amassing of clues – and the intended victim who lived to tell the tale – and identify the maniacal monster who stalked the outback.
