Murder in the forest.

This project looks back 20 years to the notorious backpacker murders committed by Ivan Milat.
A brutal attack that left seven young victims buried in the Belanglo state forest, south of Sydney.
The forest today still resonates with the pain and suffering inflicted on those innocent victims.
A foreboding and threatening atmosphere hangs over the forest, a stillness only disturbed now by the rustling of small animals and the call of an unseen bird echoing through the trees.
The images reflect the savage horror Milat inflicted on his victims, slashing and stabbing, burying the corpses only after torture and death had their way.
Quotes accompanying the images are referenced from contemporary news reports.
