In 1999, police in Snowtown, Australia, made a shocking discovery when they found eight barrels containing bodies in an old bank vault. The case quickly became known as the "Bodies In Barrels Murders" and later “the Snowtown Murders.” The killings were eventually attributed to John Bunting, Robert Wagner, James Vlassakis, and Mark Haydon, who had all worked together as a team of serial killers for years.
The police investigation eventually determined Bunting and the other men had murdered 12 people. Many of the victims were men, and most were tortured prior to their deaths.
In the list below, we'll explore how John Bunting recruited a team of men to help him kill over the course of seven years during the 1990s.
