Category: Serial Killing
Crime: Australia has had its fair share of killers and evil murderers in recent years, but perhaps two of the most disturbing were David and Catherine Birnie. Responsible for a reign of terror that gripped the Australian public's imagination, they brutally murdered four women in their home.
Biography: The women were aged from 15 to 35, and the murders were known as 'The Moorhouse Murders' after the street the couple were living on at the time. The couple were also convicted of attempting to murder a fifth woman. David Birnie later committed suicide in prison in 2005.
