The Bega Schoolgirl Murders

In 1997, Leslie Camilleri and Lindsay Becket abducted two teenagers: 14-year-old Lauren Barry and 16-year-old Nichole Collins. The girls were camping with friends only a few kilometres from home when they decided to leave the camp to visit friends. As they emerged from the bush they were picked up by Camilleri and Beckett. They were driven across the state of Victoria and subjected to 9 hours of rape and torture. After the harrowing ordeal, the two friends were stabbed to death and buried in scrubland near Fiddlers Green Creek.
