Serial Killer Ivan Milat May Make A Death Bed Confession
“[The murders] would have continued."
There are hopes of a death bed confession from Australian serial killer Ivan Milat, who is in intensive care in Sydney’s Prince of Wales Hospital.
The 74-year-old reportedly has just days left to live after being diagnosed with terminal oesophageal and stomach cancer back in May. He has since been undergoing chemotherapy.
Former police officer Clive Small, who lead the team that captured Milat, doesn’t expect he’ll reveal details of the seven murders which landed him in jail, or confirm further killings he’s suspected of.
Small has little sympathy for the infamous murderer, telling Seven’s Sunrise, "I think Ivan was a person who was never going to be sorry or regret the murders he carried out and he would have carried out the murders as long as he was free - they would have continued."
The former road worker was sentenced in 1996 to seven consecutive life sentences for murdering seven backpackers whose bodies were found in makeshift graves in NSW's Belanglo State Forest in the 1990s.
In a three-page handwritten letter dated July 11 and sent to The Sun Herald, Milat claimed he was innocent of the deaths.
