'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.
'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'.
Lynise said she has been unable to go out in public due to her connection with the serial killer but she 'finally can' now.
Milat was convicted in 1996 for the murder of seven backpackers in the Belanglo State Forest, south of Sydney, between 1989 and 1992.
He maintained his innocence until the end and his claim of innocence has been supported by members of his family, including Lynise.
She said: 'He was framed, they (police) were desperate to find the person.'
Feuding brothers, affairs and a fake story: the unravelling of Ivan Milat
The jury didn't buy Milat's defence that it 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.
Lynise is the love child of a secret relationship between Milat and her mother Marilyn Milat-Tempest, who was dating the serial killer's brother Boris at the time.
Marilyn said Milat was loved by everyone who knew him.
Milat's brother Boris, who is the only member of the family to publicly denounce the killer, toldit was a 'big relief' that Milat was dead.
'This man is just an evil right to the last bone of him. He was dead to me a long time ago,' Boris said.
'Australia is rid of one of the notorious serial killers, psychopaths.'
Milat's victims were English backpackers Caroline Clarke, 21, and Joanne Walters 22; Melbourne couple James Gibson and Deborah Everist, both 19; and German backpackers Simone Schmidl, 20, Gabor Neugebauer, 21, and Anja Habschied, 20.

He stabbed most, decapitated one whose head has never been found and shot another 10 times in the head as if using her for target practice.
Many were knifed so savagely their bones were chipped, some had been gagged or bound, and some were suspected of having been sexually assaulted.
