Description

Two bound Thai prostitutes are thrown into a Northern Territory river teeming with crocodiles. An elderly father and son are chopped to pieces by tomahawk-wielding ferals in Tasmania. A 'brave heart' youth worker is found savagely battered to death in Sydney for no apparent reason, mysteriously with false teeth in his pocket. When it comes to our most baffling, bizarre and brutal modern murders, very little is as it seems. Badlands unpacks the compelling psychological riddles, inspired investigations and sensational plot twists of 13 sordid contemporary homicides. Taking in the full sweep of humanity, from bumbling junkies to rich white rappers, illustrious art critics, deranged killers and tenacious cops, Liam Houlihan melds exclusive interviews and scrupulous research to bring us the most riveting stories from the depths of Australia's Badlands.
