His vicious attacks on women started at the age of 15, and eventually resulted in the brutal murder and mutilation of three innocent women. Dupas was eventually linked to her murder through DNA evidence and given life imprisonment. Officers then reopened a murder case from The brutal killing of Margaret Maher, dumped on a roadside in Campbellfield, Victoria, initially remained unsolved until police officers investigated the case once more, and spotted a similar mutilation method used on Nicky Patterson — the removal of the breasts.
The Bodies In The Barrels Murders The Snowtown murders were so barbaric and shocking the Australian community still struggle to come to terms with what happened. The more they looked into the case however, the more missing people they uncovered — and connected to all the missing people were two men — John Bunting and Robert Wagner.
As their investigation continued, the trial of missing people led them to a bank vault in Snowtown. Inside the vault, they found several barrels — all containing body parts. The arrest of Bunting, Wagner plus two associates Mark Haydon and Jamie Vlassakis unravelled the whole saga — a saga of torture, sadism and murder.
Between August and May John Bunting and Robert Wagner tortured and murdered twelve people many of whom they knew from Adelaide — stealing their money and forcing them to record messages to loved ones that were used to convince friends and relatives they were still alive.
The trial that followed was one of the longest and most publicised in Australian legal history. Bunting and Wagner were eventually found guilty and imprisoned, never to be released.
The programme features an exclusive interview with Paul Schramm who led the investigation as well as other Officers who also worked on the case.
We investigate the psychology of John Bunting and meet the man who had the grim task of identifying the bodies in the barrels.
