Backpackers who went MISSING in Australia while travelling


Australia can be a traveller’s paradise, with it’s beautiful beaches and breath-taking scenery. Many young people flock to the island to get some sun and surf. In 2015, 606,000 backpackers visited Australia. Unfortunately, Australia is sometimes a backpacker’s last destination. Many of my readers, especially if you are Australian, will have heard of Ivan Milat. His spate of serial killings is known as ‘The Backpacker Murders’ because he killed seven people, five of whom were foreign backpackers, from 1989 to 1993. Even more backpackers have befallen a terrible fate before and since Milat’s reign of terror, and sometimes the worst part is not knowing what happened. Here I chronicle eight missing backpacker cases in Australia, in order of their date of disappearance.

Highway of Tears: Full and Detailed List. 27 cases, 22 unsolved.

In Canada, dozens of women have been murdered or disappeared along Highway 16 in British Columbia. Most are still unsolved. Many of the women are of Indigenous descent. Indigenous women in Canada are four times as likely to be murdered than non-native Canadian women. Indigenous groups have long claimed that police do not properly investigate these cases because of racial prejudice, however, it should be noted that the solution rate for homicides of Indigenous women is nearly identical for the solution rate for homicides involving non-native women. The Highway of Tears has a particularly high murder and disappearance rate because of poverty and a lack of public transportation in the area, which has lead to increased hitchhiking, where many women have met their death.

Debbie Linsley’s Last Train Ride

Who Killed Debbie on the Afternoon Train?


On 23 March 1988 Debbie Linsley boarded the 2:16pm train at Orpington to London Victoria. It was a 35 minute train journey.

Debbie boarded an old-fashioned train carriage with room for six people and doors at each side of the carriage. Unlike modern trains, there is no corridor between the carriages. Debbie sat in her carriage and smoked two cigarettes and ate part of her sandwich. A passenger stated that screaming was heard from Debbie’s carriage after it left Brixton in south London, the final, and longest leg of the train journey. The witness heard noises for two minutes and feared a woman was being raped. But it was even worse.
