Milat was ultimately identified by 24-year-old British backpacker Paul Onions, who escaped a car when a gun was pulled on him near Belanglo State Forest.

Milat always maintained his innocence despite a wealth of forensic evidence against him. In phone recordings made for the Australian Broadcasting Commission's "Australian Story" program in 2004, Milat said he was sure he'd be found innocent at trial.

"My basic defense in my trial was that it wasn't me," he said. "I don't know who did it. It was up to them to prove my guilt, not for me to prove my innocence."

Even up until his death, police tried to elicit a confession. NSW Police said in a statement that officers visited Milat eight times in prison and in hospital in his final days.

"Various strategies were deployed on each occasion, including different combinations of detectives and utilizing recorded interviews with victims' families as an investigative technique," the statement said. "No further information was received or provided to police during the interactions."
