Ivan Milat’s final wishes revealed in letter

Off By

Ivan Milat wants NSW Corrective Services to pay for his funeral and has urged his brother Bill, who has been left his entire estate, not to contribute one cent.

In his final letter penned on October 24 – and reprinted by the Illawarra Mercury with permission from the family – Milat said he was “pretty crook” but wanted his wishes known while his “mind was still ok”.

“Due to my health issues, I wish to leave you all I have: all funds held in my prison account and to possession of all other the items/property and legal trial and appeal review documents held on my behalf by Corrective Services NSW,” Milat said.

He acknowledged that this might not be considered a true will, or legally-binding document, however he wanted his intention known that Bill was to have everything he owned.
