Update: Serial killer Ivan Milat has been transferred to the Intensive Care Unit of Sydney’s Prince of Wales Hospital. Milat was diagnosed with terminal oesophagus and stomach cancer in May and given three months to live.
Serial killer Ivan Milat killed seven young backpackers between 1989 and 1993. In 1996, he was sentenced to life in prison without the prospect of release.
He is now 74, and has been diagnosed with terminal cancer.
Milat is dying from oesophagus and stomach cancer and in his last weeks left on this earth, he is being urged to do one thing.
But not just to the seven murders he was convicted for but never admitted to, he is also being urged to confess, if guilty, to the dozens of cases that he has been linked to over the years that bear similarities to his murders.
Here is the trailer to Catching Milat. Post continues after video.
