There were little men who wouldn't do for Robyn Lindholm.
They hurried to her cigarettes, lined up to buy her drinks, and eagerly pushed money into her garter.
Some would kill for her.
Robyn Lindholm was known as Colette when she became nude at bars in Melbourne. She had lived a charmed childhood, but there was a darkness in her that was brutally revealed
The police released a photo of George Templeton in 2005 when he & # 39; went missing & # 39; became. His partner Robyn Lindholm set up a display that was worthy of a Logie
Lindholm was the kind of woman who could be someone and would have done everything with her life if she had stayed on the right path.
Instead, she will go into Australian history as arguably the most deadly & # 39; femme fatale & # 39 ;.
Some say she is much worse than a simple & # 39; black widow & # 39 ;. The term & # 39; serial killer & # 39; fits her like a lace glove.
These were all terms that a jury from the Supreme Court of Victoria was not allowed to hear, while Lindholm was tried last month for the murder of her former fiancé George Templeton.
She was found guilty of his murder on Thursday.
Lindholm was entitled to a fair trial, but from now on, few would care much about the honesty of her life.
But again, Lindholm has always been a master manipulator.
Even when she was taken to and from the Supreme Court dock where she spent weeks at a time when she was confronted with murder proceedings, Lindholm would talk to her abductors as if she were an old friend.
Prison sources would say that she was sympathetic, tempting but deadly.
Sentenced to 25 years in prison in 2015 for the murder of another lover, Lindholm quickly relocated from the male world and included a lesbian lover in the Lady Phyllis Frost women's prison just outside Melbourne.
If she couldn't catch a man, a woman would do just as well, a source said.
Owner Hawthorn gym Wayne Amey had been involved in a property dispute with Robyn Lindholm about a farm they had in Bittern, southeast of Melbourne, when she decided he had to die

But it was in the world of sleazy, sweaty men that Lindholm flushed her life down the toilet and became a ruthless murderer.
Templeton was 38 on May 2, 2005 when he disappeared from the reservoir house, in the north of Melbourne, which he shared with Lindholm and his teenage son.
Templeton was a standover man named George Teazis.
Lindholm had had a volatile, six-year relationship with the former mercenary who had worked hard to continue straight.
But she also did it with another guy on the side by the name of Wayne Amey, also known as & # 39; Batman & # 39 ;.
The couple decided that Templeton should go.
The police claimed that they had chosen a night that they knew would honor the death of his father so that he would not suspect a threatening cheating.
On the night he was about to disappear, witnesses claimed he was happy and lovingly kissed Lindholm's wound after burning her hand.
The jury heard that Lindholm made sure he was plastered drunk and probably helped him along with some sleeping pills.
When she came up with a reason to leave, Amey – possibly assisted by some friends – attacked Templeton on the couch.
Investigators believe he was thrown away at sea.
When Templeton disappeared, Lindholm set up a display for the television cameras & # 39; s worthy of a Logie nomination.
Crown prosecutor Ray Gibson, QC, alleged that Templeton was in control of Lindholm.
& # 39; There were arguments, he inhibited her freedom considerably. George was suspicious about her. He was mentioned in derogatory terms by the suspect. She called him the plastic gangster who was going nowhere, & he said.
& # 39; More importantly, he stood in her way to pursue her relationship with the fit, sexy, leather pants with Amey. & # 39;
Robyn Lindholm has sent several of her lovers and is considered an evil serial killer
Robyn Lindholm is friendly with prison staff and is known to chat with them and she is taken to and from the court. They don't know how to get close to her because she's deadly too
Months after Templeton disappeared, the police admitted he might not want to be found, but was deeply concerned that he had not used his cell phone or bank accounts and had been waiting for a prepaid Queensland vacation with Lindholm.
The police had long suspected that he had been murdered by Amey on behalf of Lindholm, but the case went cold when the Missing Person's Squad of Victoria Police was dissolved.
And Amey wouldn't live long enough to go into her.
His body was found in December 2013 in downtown Victoria, beaten and stabbed.
Torsten Trabert and John Anthony Ryan were later found guilty of his murder after Lindholm told the police that she had ordered him dead.
Trabert had also had a relationship with Lindholm.
A witness at that trial gave evidence that she heard someone from the trunk of a car driven by one of the men: & You don't have to go that far. I will do everything. & # 39;
After a bloody murder, the trio went to a country pub for a festive drink.
Like Templeton, Amey was the & # 39; white hot & # 39; been Lindholm's partner before it became ugly.
Robyn Lindholm boasted that she had been the girlfriend of Alphonse Gangitano, known as the & # 39; Black Prince of Lygon Street & # 39;
Alphonse Gangitano was murdered in his own house in 1998 by Jason Moran. Gangitano had shot the little criminal Gregory John Workman, who caused the gangland war in Melbourne
Prosecutor Gavin Silbert SC labeled Lindholm a & # 39; femme fatale & # 39; who controlled men and who had been involved in an intense sexual relationship with Trabert, using large amounts of drugs.
& # 39; Mr. Trabert was in love with her. He left his wife and children, & Mr. 39 said. & # 39; He was involved in an intense sexual relationship with her. & # 39;
Police also believe that Lindholm may have been involved in the disappearance and murder of exotic dancer Shari Davison, 26, in 1995.
Lindholm worked under the professional name Collette at the same stripper agency, Simply Irresistible, as Davison before she went missing.
It is said that they were good friends.
It was reported in The age in 2016, Templeton was mentioned in the investigation into the disappearance and murder of Davison in 1995, because he once put a gun on the head of a woman during a drug discussion.
Not long after she was gone, Lindholm became an item with another soon-to-be dead identity: Alphonse Gangitano.
Known as the & # 39; Black Prince or Lygon Street & # 39 ;, Gangitano is fingered as the man who started the infamous Underbelly War of Melbourne and was killed in 1998.
Although Lindholm had nothing to do with the downfall of Gangitano, a jury heard she had ordered the murder of Amey because of a bitter dispute over ownership of a farm in Bittern, southeast of Melbourne.
Lindholm was angry, vengeful and bitter about breaking her relationship with him and losing the farm.
She had hoped to live quietly for the rest of her life and raise her Arabian horses on the property.
During her pre-sentence hearing it was revealed that there was no good reason for Lindholm to choose the bad path she had.
She told doctors that she & # 39; had the most wonderful upbringing and youth she could hope for & # 39 ;.
Lindholm had attended primary school Kilvington Baptist Girls Grammar and then Malvern Girls Secondary College where she completed her VCE in 1990.
She was a talented student and enrolled in a Bachelor of Science degree at Monash University.
She stopped after a year to follow a cattle breeding course at Box Hill TAFE.
As a teenager, Lindholm was a state and national skating champion and played in the Torvill & Dean show when he was in Australia.
She started riding at the age of 11 and received her first horse from her father a year later.
A hard worker, Lindholm was 23 when she purchased a 74-hectare farm in Glenhope, north of Melbourne.
But her life changed when she was hired as a barmaid and then as a hostess in the casino's exclusive Mahogany Room.
There she met the owner of a strip club, who would change the course of her life with a simple work offer.
