The Two Women Who Had A Stabbing Victim In Their Car Boot Were Headed For Belanglo, Police Say

The two NSW women who were allegedly found driving a car with a stabbed 24-year-old in the boot were apparently heading to Belanglo State Forest, according to police. If that draws a big yikes reaction, it’s because it is the same place that seven of Ivan Milat‘s victims were found.

According to The Daily Telegraph, the police believe that the car was headed to Belanglo State Forest and sources are said to be investigating the car’s navigation system.

The women driving the vehicle have now been identified as Latia Henderson (18) and Kayley Ketley (24) and have been hit with a number of charges, including intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

The 24-year old woman in the boot was rescued by a truck driver after they noticed her hand waving frantically from the rear tail light of a Holden Commodore.

The Commodore was travelling down the Hume Highway at Pheasants Nest on Wednesday morning. A Highway Patrol car pulled it over and found the young woman in the boot.

The victim was treated for multiple stab wounds at the scene before being taken to Liverpool Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Henderson and Ketley appeared at Picton Local Court on Thursday and Ketley tried to get released on bail, without a lawyer.

“My grandmother is very sick,” Ketley told the court.

“I would be asking to be released into her care at her address so I can care for her … I would do whatever I have to do.”

Between September 1992 and 1993 police found the bodies of seven men and women aged between 19-22 partially buried in the Belanglo State Forest, NSW. The victims were foreign backpackers and hitchhikers who were picked by Ivan Milat in Sydney and killed in Belanglo.

In 1994, Milat was arrested for their murders. He received seven life sentences in 1996, one for each victim, as well as 18 years without parole.
