    Serial killer monster hunt: Some of Australia’s most notorious criminals targeted in state review of cold cases


    HOMICIDE detectives are cross-referencing the movements of four of Australia’s most notorious serial killers with unsolved murders and missing persons cases in the state’s most ambitious and far-reaching cold case review to date.

    Australia’s most prolific serial killer, Ivan Milat, is among the quartet convicted of killing 17 people between them but the deaths of dozens more going back nearly four decades are now being re-evaluated by police for possible links.

    Detective Chief Inspector John Lehmann from the NSW Unsolved Homicide Squad said a review team was now looking at the files of Milat and other known serial killers Ivan Ashley Coulston, Reginald Arthurell and Bandali Debs.

    Other killers known to prey on women will also be looked at as part of the cold case operation, which is believed to be first time police have reviewed known serial killers and all their potential victims at the same time.

    “First we gather intelligence on the killers looking for things like where they were at a given time period and if there were any unsolved murders or missing persons around then,’’ Det-Insp Lehmann said.

    “Everyone knows about Ivan Milat and his crimes but the other three are equally as evil. They are in that handful of elite psychopaths who seem to have a compulsion to kill.’’

    “It's a bit of a departure from the normal way of investigating homicide. Normally you have a victim and then look for a killer.”

    The ambitious project is a part of the normal process the squad undertakes regularly.

    “To us it's a routine review of unsolved homicides from a different angle,’’ said Inspector Lehmann.

    “What is not routine I suppose is the notoriety of those involved.’’

    “The team will look at what we have in ways of linking these murderers to a victim and then hopefully build up enough evidence to form a strike team and eventually charge them.’’

    “Unless we need to get DNA or witnesses statements we avoid telling families of potential victims of the investigation until we believe we have to or are in a position.

    “We don’t want to raise their hopes or bring up those emotions unless we have to.’’

    All four are currently in jail, and except for Artherall have little chance of ever getting out.

    “Even though many of the murders are old, sometimes 30 years ago and the killers are locked away it doesn't mean we should give up,” he said.

    “Its about getting justice for the dead and for their families.’’
