Police still believe Milat may have been responsible for other murders, carried out with similar characteristics, including three people whose bodies were found in three other forests from as early as 1971 to 1991.

Mr Shipsey added to 10 News First: "He wasn't in a good way at all, I think because of the morphine they were giving him, but he never shut up about the case, he talked the whole time".

Caroline Clarke, from the United Kingdom, was 21 when she was killed.

In September 1992, two runners orienteering in the Belanglo State Forest southwest of Sydney found a corpse hidden under broken branches and leaf litter.

The detective said that he had no respect for him at all as he should have given details begore his death, which he did not.

He had been backpacking in Australia in 1990 when he was picked up by a man named "Bill".

He has also been linked to the murder of Peter Letcher, 18, of Bathurst, who disappeared while hitching to see his girlfriend in January 1988.
