    60 Minutes Australia: Escape From Salt Creek (2017)
    Channel 9
    Published on Oct 8, 2017

    ’Until February last year few people had ever heard of Salt Creek, a rugged and spectacular piece of coastline 200 kilometres south-east of Adelaide. But then a monster named Roman Heinze lured two 23-year-old overseas backpackers to the isolated beach. To satisfy his wicked fantasies, Heinze kidnapped the unsuspecting women and subjected them to unthinkable terror. The trauma went on for hours, but against the odds, Lena from Germany and her friend from Brazil survived. What happened at Salt Creek has eerie similarities to the Australian horror movie Wolf Creek, only it’s all too real. On 60 MINUTES, Lena and her friend tell Tara Brown their incredible story of escape from Salt Creek, their desperate battle to save themselves and each other, and how they proved courage can conquer evil.’

    Seriously, what the hell about the mystery blonde backpacker that he was seen with previously but left Salt Creek without??? I hope this is or has been thoroughly investigated by police.

    Thank you so much for those videos Bohemian. It must have been quite traumatic to re-enact what happened that day. I'm sure it will take a very long time, certainly in the case of Beatrice, before the very worst of the memories start to fade.

    What lovely girls they are. I wish them nothing but happiness.

    #Adelaide court DISMISSES #SaltCreek kidnapper Roman Heinze's appeal against conviction, sentence. Story soon on @theTiser.

    From the article http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/...e/news-story/d3f87d33c9216b2ea3e4990a5fd8bdfb

    “The sentence was long but not excessive, and the judge correctly described Heinze’s offending as primitive,” he said.
    “He acted brutally and was apparently unrestrained by any feeling of empathy for his victims or regard for the most basic norms of human behaviour.

    His defence "In his appeal papers, Heinze argued the Supreme Court was wrong to tell jurors about his pornography collection, claiming it tainted their verdicts."
    "He also claimed he was sentenced too harshly, with too great an emphasis placed on protecting the community — particularly women — from him in the future."

    IMO Women need protection from him.

    Um, he kept hardcore bondage-style rape pornography on his phone and viewed it on the day he offered to take the girls — whom he kidnapped and brutalised — to the Coorong. Well, it no doubt inspired him to carry out the attacks and I'd suggest it only strengthened his resolve to take them to that isolated spot and attempt to rape at least one of them. Premeditation was clearly part of the crime.

    As for "protecting the community — particularly women", I'm unaware of any attacks or brutality against men. This is just laughable. Men don't start committing crimes like this at that stage of life. No doubt there were many others who suffered at his hands over the years.

    As he's 61, he may remain in prison for the rest of his life. As he's such an outdoors man, being confined to a small prison cell will add immeasurably to his punishment. He deserves whatever's coming to him. Karma.

    I know this is an old thread and this tiny bit is the very least significant part of the story, but I just happened upon the 60 Minutes episode showing what transpired and I’m so confused about why he couldn’t get onto the roof of the vehicle and she could, especially considering he’s 6’6 and she looks to be quite short. Does anyone understand and can help/explain it to me?

    Could it be because he is a man in his sixties? Can't bat, can't bowl, can't climb.

    From memory she had a shovel from the car roof and could whack him with it.
