Product description

Product Description

Between 1989 and 2006, there were 5,226 homicides in Australia. Serial homicides account for 1% of this astonishing number of murders that were committed by 13 known offenders.
In this 3rd volume of Serial Homicide, the following cases are discussed:
On their way to Sydney for a festival, British backpackers Joanne Walters and Caroline Clarke suddenly disappeared. Their bodies were the first of many to be discovered buried in Belango State Forest. Joanne was stabbed 35 times while Caroline was shot in the head 10 times. Seemingly unstoppable, The Backpacker Killer, Ivan Milat, went on to kill between 7 and 12 people.
Known as The Moorhouse Murders, David and Catherine Birnie cruised the streets to abduct young women and bring them to their house. There they raped, tortured, and killed them without mercy.
The Snowtown Murders, aka Bodies-in-barrels murders, were committed by four serial killers who targeted homosexuals brutally killing 12 people before they were stopped.
Arnold Sodeman, the School-girl Killer, lured young girls between the ages of 6 and 16 with money and ice cream. None of his four victims made it home from the play ground or schools.
Eric Edgar Cooke, the Night Caller,  terrorized one community for four years where he killed a dozen people. His acts were so depraved it's questionable whether Cooke was even human.One victim was strangled to death with the cord from a bedside lamp, after which Cooke he raped the corpse, dragged it to a neighbor's lawn, then sexually penetrated it with an empty whiskey bottle.
Lindsay Robert Rose is an Australian serial killer and contract killer from New South Wales, currently serving five consecutive sentences of life imprisonment without the possibility of parole for the murder of 5 people between 1984 and 1994.

I never thought of Australia in relation to serial killers,but as this book proves they are there..
This is a very good read and the 3rd book in the Serial Homicide series.
RJ has compiled a list of some of the worst killers in history.Some you may have heard of and others less familiar.It's a definite must read for true crime fanatics.I have recommended it to my family and friends and they've enjoyed reading it as much as I have.

Volume # 3 of serial killers ( Serial Homicide ) is just as interesting as volume 1 & 2. Some of these killers I wasn't familiarized with, stories are very disturbing. Some of these monsters have committed unthinkable acts. A great book for true crime readers.

Australian Serial Killers are not something you hear about every day and this book was an eye opener for sure. Love RJ as an author and I love the subjects he chooses to write about.

5.0 out of 5 stars Violent death in the Land of Oz 1 January 2017
By B. McKee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
True crime fans will want to read these six stories about Australian serial killers. While many may have heard about Eric Edgar Cooke, the Night Caller, or the Snowtown Bodies in Barrels murders, perhaps they are not familiar (as I was not) with Lindsay Rose or the Backpacker Murders.

Other chapters deal with Arnold Sodeman, who brutally kidnapped and murdered young children, and the Moorhouse killing couple, David and Catherine Birnie.

The chapters cover the crimes, investigation, capture and outcome of each case.

Includes photos and reference notes.
