Ivan Milat: Australia’s notorious backpacker killer

In the 1990s, the bodies of seven young backpackers were discovered in Belanglo State Forest, a 9,400-acre wood in New South Wales, Australia. The bodies, each riddled with stab wounds, had been posed face-down with loose hut-like structures of sticks constructed over them. The killings, which became known as the ‘backpacker murders,’ were discovered to be the work of Ivan Milat, an Australian man with a prior history of abduction and rape.
