Think I'll run a book on whether he spills his guts or not. The only way I can see him doing it is with a smirk on his face.
Amanda Howard also known as the serial killer whisperer, has been writing to him in jail for some time. I'd have to check back but iirc she thinks he might have had a partner.

Anyway, only weeks to live apparently and he's been moved to the hospital at Long Bay which will be easier for detectives to travel to rather than Goulburn. Cancer of the oesophagus is a very painful way to go I believe.

Money is on the youngest brother Richard, he was talking about it before Ivan was arrested.
When a pair was killed, each time they seemed to be killed differently to each other.

Was watching one of those Crime Investigation Australia shows recently and noticed that when discussing the items which supposedly belonged to the backpackers, the rest of the family who had them in their possession said Ivan had given the things to them, but when Richard was asked about the things he had, he denied they had belonged to the backpackers and said he got them all from the family home.
Left me thinking it was his way of not throwing Ivan under the bus and in return avoiding the possibility that Ivan may one day point the finger in his direction as an accomplice.

ACA tonight, 7.00pm. This guy says he took a lift off Milat and that there was someone else in the car with him.

'Escaped'? So Milat picked him up (in 1971 mind you) and there was someone else in the car. Let's see if ACA and 'journalism' hits a new low tonight with that being all there is to it.

Yer .. I know and did hesitate before linking ACA in. He might have something interesting to say though.
I should ring ACA with my harrowing story from 1982, or better still, ring their competition, Sunday Night or 4 Corners. I was at a pub, alone, in Sydney where a guy (possible serial killer, who knows) asked me back to his place. He had a moustache so it could have been Milat!!! I said no and escaped back to my tent. I hardly slept for days afterwards but that's probably because I'm an insomniac.
