'Please don't pay for my funeral services or contribute in any way,' the 74-year-old wrote in his instructions on Thursday.

'Corrective Services NSW to fund it all - a pauper's burial or whatever is suitable.'

Milat maintained his innocence right up until his death and refused to answer any questions about other murders he is suspected of committing.

'You could blow me eyes with a blowtorch and I still could not tell you one word about any of them missing people,' he said in one interview.

As he reached the end, police tried every appeal and every trick in the book to get him to confess, all to no avail.

'I don't care, that's it. Don't hold your breath waiting for me to call,' were his final words to police before his death.

Detectives even tried playing him interviews with his alleged victims' families in an appeal to any ounce of humanity he might have left - but he was unmoved.

'What do you want me to watch this for?' he told them.

'They only say what you expect them to say. I don't feel sorry for them. Why should I feel sorry for them?'

Former detective Clive Small, who led the NSW Police investigation into the backpacker killings, believes Milat thwarted police to keep his 'power'.

'Ivan, having information that he knew others didn't have, he saw himself as being the boss or in control of the situation,' he told 2GB radio.

'I think he believed that once he gave that information up he no longer had the power.'
