In 2013 Naden was convicted of murdering Lateesha Nolan and Kristy Scholes – two young, Indigenous women from the regional city of Dubbo in NSW.
Throughout the Channel 9 program an actor playing the role of Naden read out the convicted murderer’s lengthy, poetic confession of his crimes.
“Poor Lateesha didn’t even seen it coming. She didn’t know death was travelling with us and that it would take her that night. I still can’t believe it. This really is the first time I’ve had to think about it. I don’t dwell on it much, probably just as well. I wish I could feel some sort of emotion. I can’t,” Naden wrote.
"I sat in the back briefly just looking at her. She was so peaceful, so quiet, so empty. I've never seen a body so relaxed, not even in sleep. She'd crossed from life to death in an instant."
The reading of Naden's 25 page confession letter was interspersed with snippets of interviews from the detectives who worked the case.
The ACA segment followed Naden's story from his childhood through to the murders, to his seven years on the run, to his eventual capture and conviction for his crimes.
Malcolm was portrayed as a soulful Ned Kelly-esque fugitive who managed to live off the land and allude the police for years.
