    Is it this one?

    Australia's alleged 'backpack killer' goes on trial

    A 51-year-old construction worker charged in what has become Australia's most notorious serial killer case pleaded innocent Monday at the start of what could be a six-month trial.
    Ivan Robert Marko Milat is charged with plucking seven backpack-toting hitchhikers from a highway between Sydney and Melbourne between 1989 and 1992, murdering them, then burying their bodies in a forest southwest of Sydney.

    On the Doe Network, there are so many missing persons in...New South Wales?? I think that is the part of Australia that I'm thinking about. Lots of them went missing in the late mid-to late 70s.

    Ivan was known to be in the same area at the same time some of these girls went missing.
    Two girls went missing from the town I now live at........Ivan was working here at the time.
    He was tried recently for one of the missing girls....but there wasnt enough evidence against him.
    At least he is where he belongs.

    Do you know if the movie "Wolf Creek" is based on Ivan's known murders? That is a scary movie.

    Hi Sam.
    Wolf Creek is loosely based on the backpaker murders as well as the Peter Falcanio/Joanna Lees case.
    Wolf Creek is one scarey movie......the name of the campsite in the movie is an anagram for Ivan Milat

    OK, that anagram thing FREAKS me out. I love scary movies! I think that what makes Wolf Creek so scary is that it did happen and it CAN happen to anyone.

    Heck yea thats what makes it scary. I still get spooked watching The Amityville Horror. Anything that is based of fact scares me.

    I know a lot of people think the movie is lame, but "The Blair Witch Project" was pretty scary to me. I do believe in the supernatural and in hauntings. I don't think camping will ever be the same for me! :eek:

    A New South Wales company, Goulburn Ghost Tours, has cancelled its widely-criticized 'Extreme Terror Tours' of 1990s serial killer Ivan Milat's dumping ground in Belanglo Forest.

    Milat is serving life sentences for the murder of seven packpackers - two Australians, three Germans and two Britons - who he buried in the forest. In 2010, a teen relative of his also killed someone in the forest and the victim's family, who live nearby, spoke of their disgust at the tours.

    Goulburn manager Louise Edwards said that 'with hindsight, more thought should have gone into the marketing of the tours'.
