Serial killer Ivan Milat spends night in hospital

Serial killer Ivan Milat may only have a few weeks left to live, after he spent the night in a Sydney Hospital.

The notorious backpacker killer was diagnosed with terminal cancer a few months ago.

He spent a couple of weeks in hospital in May, when he was diagnosed with oesophagus and stomach cancer.


Though yesterday afternoon, he was transferred from Long Bail jail to a secure part of the Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.

It’s reported he was transferred for non-life threatening reasons.

The 74-year-old is currently serving seven life sentences after being found guilty of murdering seven backpackers in Belanglo State Forest in the 1990s.
