As Ivan Milat entered his final days, detectives played him videos of his victim’s loved ones. But the grief-stricken footage used to try and coax a confession from the killer fell unheard.
A 74-year-old Ivan Milat died at 4:07am on a Sunday morning maintaining his innocence.
Ever since he was sentenced to life behind bars in 1996, the murderer has refused to admit to his horrific crimes.
Ivan Milat’s brother Boris speaks to 60 Minutes. Post continues after video.
In fact, he told a detective tasked with trying to get a deathbed confession out of him, “people die, they should just get over it”, reported The Australian.
The publication reported that NSW police launched a secret operation trying to extract an admission of guilt out of the serial killer once he was transferred from Goulburn’s Supermax prison to Sydney’s Prince of Wales Hospital with cancer of the oesophagus and stomach.
He was visited by different combinations of detectives at least eight times in the last five months of his life.
