Small said Gordon was not the man who caught Milat but there was a team of more than 600 police that worked extremely hard to catch the killer. "I can tell you that quite a number of the people on the task force and quite a lot of other people that were associated were very upset. And I think the show has also shown a fair deal of disrespect to the family and friends of the victims and I think that's a bit unnecessary and upsetting," Small said
Over recent months Netflix has dominated the true crime genre releasing three new true crime docuseries; The Ted Bundy Tapes, Abducted In Plain Sight and The Disappearance Of Madeleine McCann.
The true story behind serial killer Ivan Milat will also be at the center of true crime podcast Caefile's five-part special.
Ivan Milat is now 74 years old and still remains Australia's worst serial killer. He was charged with the murder of seven young people who were backpacking in the area – five of them from overseas – but it has been speculated he was involved in more murders.
In 1996, he was sentenced to seven consecutive life sentences for his crimes.
The Milat family has become infamous in recent years after Milat’s great-nephew Matthew Milat and another boy, Cohen Klein (both 19 at the time), were sentenced to 43 years and 32 years in prison respectively for murdering 17-year-old David Auchterlonie on his birthday with an axe in the same forest where Milat buried his victims.
