It was his brothers' talking that got him caught. 

If Ivan Milat's oldest brother, Alex, hadn't made up some cock-and-bull about seeing two women being driven blindfolded into Belanglo State Forest, and if one of his younger brothers, Richard, hadn't boasted "I know who killed those Germans", the serial killer would probably never have been fingered.

The same thing had happened in 1974. Milat was wanted for raping a hitchhiker near Goulburn in 1971 and had been on the run for two-and-half years after skipping bail and faking suicide at The Gap. But when he came to visit his ailing mother at Prince Alfred Hospital, another brother, Boris, dobbed him in to the cops and the long-suffering Margaret Milat soon found her hospital bed surrounded by men in brown suits pointing guns.

  'Bloody beauty': Families of Ivan Milat's victims relieved The families of Ivan Milat's victims feel his death will allow them to move on with their lives. The notorious Australian serial killer died at Long Bay Hospital early this morning after a battle with oesophagus and stomach cancer. He was 74.After Nine senior crime reporter Simon Bouda received the news this morning, he spoke with Ian Clarke, the father of British backpacker Caroline Clarke, 21, who was murdered by Milat in 1992 with her friend Joanne Walters, 22."He didn't know and he said, 'Simon no matter how Christian one might be you can't help but be glad that this has happened'," Bouda said.

Two brothers of serial killer Ivan Milat maintain he is innocent of murdering the seven backpackers he was serving life sentences for at the time of his death. Speaking outside his Bargo home, he said the family planned to have Milat ’s body cremated and there would not be a funeral. Bill Milat , right, who is

In a family of 14 kids, it is perhaps inevitable that enmities develop. Boris hated his brother because Ivan had a long-running affair with Boris' wife, Marilyn, and everybody knew Boris' daughter was actually Ivan's.

Boris claimed to have picked up a gun on two occasions and gone looking to kill Ivan, only to pull back at the last minute.

Such feuds need not last forever, as evidenced by Ivan's affair with another of his sisters-in-law, Maureen. His next youngest brother, Wally, also picked up a gun and went looking for Ivan over that. But Maureen got word to Ivan and he scarpered. Afterwards, it was like it never happened.

How one man's lucky escape brought Milat undone

  How one man's lucky escape brought Milat undone Undeservedly, Ivan Milat achieved the age of 74 when he died this week in prison. His seven victims – at least those we know about – were all aged between 19 and 22. If you are looking for justice in the universe, don't look here.Some might take solace in the news that the evil bastard died slowly of oesophageal and stomach cancer: presumably an unpleasant end. But Milat had been receiving advanced pain relief treatment and his death would have been nothing like the prolonged agony and terror endured by his young victims.Two of them had been shot multiple times in the head, police surmising it might have been 'target practice'.

Milat 's brother believes he killed more than the 7 people he's convicted of killing. Milat (pictured) failed to admit to any of the heinous crimes he'd committed - despite being found guilty of killing Ivan Milat received seven life sentences for the murders and will die in Goulburn's Supermax prison.

Wally and Ivan continued to be great mates. So much so, that when, in 1994, the police started taking an interest in Ivan over the murder of seven hitchhikers, Wally agreed to stash some gear that Ivan had accumulated over the years – backpacks, gun parts – in the alcove under his bathroom.

When Milat eventually stood trial for the murder of seven hitchhikers between 1989 and 1992, his defence was that it wasn't him, but that "Blind Freddy" could see the murders were committed by someone in, or close to, his family.

The finger got pointed at Wally and another brother, Richard. Ivan had been using the name of another brother, Bill, since the 70s. He bought his car in that name, worked under that name at times, and attacked the diminutive English backpacker Paul Onions – the one that got away – using that name.

'I thought he was a great fella': Milat's brother defends killer

Ivan Milat leaving court in 1997, after attempting to appeal his conviction for the backpacker murders. During his trial Milat ’s lawyers attempted to place blame on one his brothers , and police actively investigated the possibility of an accomplice.

The brother of serial murderer Ivan Milat believes his sibling was motivated by financial gain, but ultimately his love for killing led to him taking the the lives of at least seven backpackers. Milat , 74, who had been in prison since 1994, died at Long Bay Hospital at 4.07am on Sunday following a battle with

People who lived near the Milats in Moorebank in the 1950s and 1960s, then Chester Hill in the 1970s and 1980s, would recall the brothers as an almost amorphous blob. Not quite distinguishable from each other. And you couldn't take one on without taking them all on.

But Ivan wasn't like his brothers. Those sisters-in-law who fell for him would recall a guy who was kinder, better mannered, neater and just generally more together than his siblings. He opened doors for women. He didn't drink, didn't smoke. He looked after himself. He could do the work of two men and worked hard enough on the roads – did so much overtime - that he'd accumulated a Harley-Davidson, a house and was in the process of buying a new Land Rover Discovery when he was arrested for the seven murders.

But those women had never lived with him. They didn't see what his wife Karen endured. She later told police that when she first met him, she was going out with his cousin whose baby she was carrying. Ivan raped her and somehow took possession of her.

  'Who isn't sad when they lose their dad?' Ivan Milat's love child breaks her silence on her father's slow and painful death saying it's left her 'depressed - as she insists the killer was FRAMED Lynise Milat, a supermarket attendant, broke her silence on her strained relationship with Milat after he died at Sydney's Long Bay Jail on Sunday morning. The 51-year-old told The Daily Telegraph: 'I am really depressed over the whole thing … Everything about Ivan made me depressed.'He was my dad … who isn't sad when they lose their dad?' She explained she felt depressed despite knowing Milat was 'never there' for her. While most of the world won't mourn the 74-year-old's death, Lynise said she did not feel the same about the passing, adding she was 'OK but not really'.

Was Lyn Dawson taken by Ivan Milat ? Brother of accused wife murderer makes stunning claim about notorious But Peter Dawson believes notorious serial killer Ivan Milat was instead involved. The Dawson's had been in the midst of marriage counselling in 1982 due to an affair Mr Dawson was

One night, she served him a meal he didn't like. He smashed his plate down so hard that the glass coffee table shattered. He took photos of it and ordered her not to touch it. He went home to his mum, showed her the pictures of his wife's failure and got a decent feed. The shards were to remain in situ for days.

When Karen eventually left him while he was on an away job, he burnt down her parents' garage.

Ivan Milat did not appear to cope well with rejection. In 1971, after his sister-in-law Marilyn had broken off their affair, he went out and raped the hitchhiker he picked up at Liverpool. Marilyn couldn't help wondering if the break-up had triggered his change.

After Karen left him in 1987, he resumed his relationship with Marilyn who was long-since divorced from Boris. But Marilyn could never get him to commit to something more serious so after a year or so, she broke it off again.

And that's when he resumed picking up hitchhikers at Liverpool. The first to disappear were the Melbourne couple Deborah Everist and James Gibson on December 30, 1989. Their bones would later reveal that both died similar deaths. A large knife was wielded upon them with such fury that it cut clean through ribs and spine – not breaking them, cutting them - over and over, focussed around the back. Their clothing indicated a sexual nature to both attacks. James's fly was undone for example, but his trousers' top button was done up.

Weeks later, on the Australia Day long weekend, Milat attempted to abduct Paul Onions. That failure appears to have caused him to pause. It was an entire year before he abducted the lone German, Simone Schmidl, whose bones would reveal a rage identical to that which the Australians suffered.

Eleven months later, on Boxing Day, 1991, the German couple Anja Habschied and Gabor Neugebauer disappeared. Neugebauer was tall and pumped weights, leading to speculation that Milat might have needed an accomplice to subdue him. He was the first victim to be shot – six times in the head, but had no knife wounds. His fly was also down. Habschied appears to have been tied in a makeshift bondage device left some hundreds of metres from where her body was found. She was decapitated, probably while still conscious. Her head was never found.

Barely three months later, Easter 1992, the British pair of Joanne Walters and Caroline Clarke were the last to disappear and the first to be found. While Walters' body revealed the characteristic knife-born fury, Clarke's murder posed a problem.

She was shot ten times in the head by someone methodically using her for target practice from about 10 metres; someone who smoked six Longbeach cigarettes while they were at it. Ivan Milat had never smoked. The forensic psychiatrist Dr Rod Milton who visited the scene the day after her body was found believed that the cold distance displayed in this murder indicated there were two people involved. Certainly two personalities.

The jury didn't buy his defence that it was must have been one of his brothers who committed the murders, and Milat was sentenced to die in jail. He continued to maintain his innocence to the end.

How To Spot Fake Classic Video Games .
Fake classic games are everywhere: At the flea market, in your local game store, on eBay, and maybe even mixed in with your own collection. The bootleggers who make them are churning them out, meaning that the market will only become more saturated with them as the years go by. If you’re going to collect games, you’ll need to learn how to watch for counterfeits. Bootleg video games are nearly as old as video games themselves. There were knockoff Atari cartridges, ersatz “100-in-1" NES games, and enough PlayStation CD-Rs to reach the moon and back during their time. But those bootlegs were easily identifiable by their shoddy quality.
