How the British tourist left Ivan Milat and the moment when the love child of backpacker killer is confronted
A British tourist talked about the moment he was almost killed by backpacker killer Ivan Milat.
Colin Powis from Newcastle in the UK was 21 years old when he first came to Australia in 1982, hoping to travel and work.
After spending two nights in the Blue Mountains, Mr. Powis made the fatal decision to hike to the city of Cobar to work in the mines.
Eventually a man driving a pickup stopped and offered a ride to Mr. Powis – a man who has now identified Mr. Powis as Milat.
& # 39; That was he. That was definitely the creep who picked me up, but he didn't smile. He didn't smile. He never laughed the whole time I saw … that I saw him. Never smiled. He was in predatory mode when I saw him, & # 39; Powis Sunday night
Mr. Powis said as he was loading his backpack, he noticed that the vehicle was bare next to & # 39; one big hammer & # 39; in the corner of the truck.

As soon as he set foot in the truck, the persona of Milat changed. He got irritated and told Powis to put on his seat belt and lock the doors.
Mr. Powis obeyed obediently, and the conversation turned to his travels.
& # 39; The first (he said) was: & # 39; How long have you been in Australia? & # 39; (en) "Who knows are you here?", & Mr. 39 told Mr. Powis.
He said he had told Milat that he had only been in the country for a few days and that he knew no one in Australia.
Afterwards Milat remained silent for a while before making a left turn for & # 39; no clear & # 39; reason – a decision that caused Mr Powis to panic.
Mr. Powis was so suspicious of Milat & # 39; s intentions that he asked to step out of the pickup truck.
Despite his request, Milat drove on before he finally stopped and Mr. Powis jumped out of the vehicle.
He said that Milat followed him out of the car and to this day Mr. Powis believes he is relieved of the damage because cars are passing by.

Mr. Powis said he had managed to run away while Milat, unable to act because of the passing cars, saw him run away and shouted: & take care of yourself, buddy & # 39; .
& # 39; I think with Milat, I think he saw backpackers (in a) hilly world, backpackers were a form of exotic animals that migrated through his territory and he could just go out and have them (them) for fun could kill. He saw backpackers as stray dogs, & said Mr. Powis.
But Mr. Powis never reported the incident to the police.
After hearing the powerful testimony of Mr. Powis, the news program also tried to speak to Milat & # 39; s love child Lynise Milat.

Milat – which is the result of an affair that Milat had with his brother Boris Marilyn's wife – refused to answer questions from the reporters of the Sunday Night.
Milat, 54, now lives north of Sydney and may be the only child Milat has ever had.
Despite the fact that she said in previous interviews that she will always & # 39; love & # 39; and that she believes he doesn't have the capacity to be a murderer, Milat declined to comment.
MILAT & # 39; S KILLERS
Between 1989 and 1992, seven young backpackers were missing while hitchhiking in the suburbs of Sydney, New South Wales.
Their bodies were all discovered in the Belanglo State Forest, near Bowral, south of Sydney, and were found to be the victims of serial killer Ivan Milat.
The victims were:
Victorians Deborah Everist and James Gibson, both 19, who were last seen in December 1989, and who were stabbed several times each.
The German Simone Schmidl, 20, disappeared in January 1991 and died of several stab wounds, including a knife through her spinal cord.
The German Gabor Neugebauer, 21, who was pinched six times and shot six times, and his 20-year-old girlfriend Anja Habschied, who was beheaded after they disappeared in January 1992.
British Caroline Clarke, 21, who was shot 10 times as if she were a target exercise and Joanne Walters, 22, who was stabbed. Last seen in April 1992.
Ivan Milat got seven sentences for the murders and will die in the Supermax prison of Goulburn.
When the reporter told her that he knocked on her front door because he hoped to interview her, Milat simply replied: "I can't help you with that".
Milat partially stayed behind her garden door while talking briefly with the reporter – before abruptly ending the conversation.
When the reporter asked if she wanted to know something, she bluntly replied & # 39; no & # 39 ;.
Although Milat & # 39; s true view of her father may never be known, it is clear how Milat & alien's older brother Boris feels about him.
Boris, who describes his younger brother as a & # 39; total psychopath & # 39 ;, says he believes Milat has committed more than the seven murders for which he was convicted.
Boris believes that Milat can be responsible for twice as many murders as having been found guilty of committing a crime.
He also has a more personal problem with Milat – the fact that he started an affair with his wife and then fathered her child.
Boris even went so far as to try to fire a firearm at Milat – but was stopped by his mother.
& # 39; Every time I started firing at the bastard, mum would walk for it, & # 39; he said.
Milat did not admit any of the heinous crimes he had committed, despite being found guilty of killing seven backpackers between 1989 and 1993 after a 15-week trial in July 1996.
The former road worker, who buried the remains of his victims in the State Forest of Belanglo in New South Wales, was sentenced to seven consecutive life sentences with a non-pooling period of 18 years for the wave of serial killings.
The murderous 74-year-old, who suffers from throat and stomach cancer, has only a short time to live.
Last month, terminal Milat was transferred to Long Bay Jail Hospital, where he is expected to stay until he dies.
Boris said he would & # 39; appreciate & # 39; if his brother died before he did it.
& # 39; I think his downfall would be greatly appreciated by me, yes, for the damage he has done. Not (only) for me. He has done a lot. I mean, it's nothing you can be proud of. (He is) just an idiotic psychopath. That's it. & # 39;
