In stark contrast, Boris Milat, the older brother of Ivan and Richard, is the only member of his family to publicly denounce the notorious serial killer in life and in death.

He told 60 Minutes last night of the relief he feels that his brother is dead, saying he is "evil right to the last bone of him".

Boris said the horrific crimes committed by his brother, and the continued support of the serial killer by the extended Milat family, disgusts him.
