The men subjected the girls to repeated rapes and sexual assaults on five or more separate occasions, while driving them to remote locations throughout rural New South Wales and Victoria. The girls were reported missing on the day of their disappearance, and a massive manhunt consisting of family, friends, police and community volunteers searched the area but failed to locate any of them.
He did not meet his natural father until he was 13 years of age. A psychiatric report prepared in spoke of Camilleri's deprived childhood, and "a pattern of theft and vandalism which have been his reaction to social ostracismleading to frustration, which because of poor impulse control has ended in explosive outbursts of destructive behaviour". Camilleri was considered "uncontrollable" as and spent a large part of his childhood in juvenile detention. He escaped the institution and, between the ages of 10 to 12, lived as a street kid in King's CrossSydney. Camilleri was eventually taken before the children's court by police and ordered to return to the institution, where he remained until he was Four days prior to the abduction of Rosamari Gandarias in Canberraand three weeks prior to the Bega murders, Camilleri appeared in the District Court of New South Wales on trial for charges relating to sexual offences against his de facto daughter.
After two days the trial was aborted and Camilleri was released from custody on bail. Camilleri had known Beckett for a Burley girls clubbing Lake Bennett girls web cam of two to three years and would often associate with him to steal cars.
Camilleri had made admissions in a police interview, but there was a dispute over the alleged motive and how the murder was effected. At the time of the murders, Beckett lived in Yass and had come to associate with Camilleri, five years his senior, in criminal pursuits. It would be Beckett who would eventually break and confess to police about the Bega murders, leading them to the bodies of the victims. It was claimed Camilleri exerted a strong influence over Beckett. In sentencing Beckett to life imprisonmentJustice Vincent described him as having "quite a low IQ " and as someone "who had fallen under the influence of an older individual of much stronger personality".
He will be 59 when eligible for parole in On 3 Octobera campsite was set up by the father of Nichole Collins at White Rock, near Bega, for his teenage daughter to invite friends over for the coming Labour Day weekend. The camp site was located three kilometres 1. Collins's father regularly called at the camp site to check on the children and did so on the day the girls disappeared. About p. Nearby, Camilleri and Beckett were riding in a Ford Telstar belonging to Camilleri's de facto partner. Camilleri had an argument hours earlier with his partner and talked to Beckett about his feelings of depression.
The two men were consuming beer and injecting each other with amphetamines  while driving aimlessly. According to Beckett, Camilleri spotted the girls walking single file along the Bega- Tathra Road in Evan's Hill and stopped to offer them a lift. At approximately p. A pink portable televisionwhich had earlier been taken by Camilleri and Beckett from a friend in lieu of a drug-related debt, was removed from the back seat of the vehicle and discarded at the side of the road to provide room for the girls to sit. The television would later become important evidence and implicate the two men in their crimes to follow.
Beckett told police the group travelled to Tathra Beach and spent some time there before returning to the campsite at White Rock. On the road leading to the campsite, Camilleri became disturbed at the car bottoming out on the uneven gravel road and became angry at the girls. The rear doors of the vehicle had been ly locked using the vehicle's child locks and there were no window winders, preventing the rear doors from being opened by passengers inside.
Camilleri produced a knife and told the girls they would be stabbed if they tried to escape. Beckett also produced a knife and went along with Camilleri in threatening the girls. Camilleri reversed away from Burley girls clubbing Lake Bennett girls web cam campsite and drove onto Old Wallagoot Road.
Rather than being returned to the campsite as earlier promised, the girls were driven to a rubbish dump off Old Wallagoot Road, not far from their homes in Kalaru, where they were both sexually assaulted. The girls were then driven further south, passing through the town of Merimbulauntil the car stopped at Ben Boyd National Park and the girls were further assaulted.
A black rubber flashlight belonging to Barry and a tampon were later located at the scene by police. The group continued through the town of Edenwhere the men again assaulted the girls in an area south of the town. Camilleri then ordered Beckett to drive, who drove towards Orbost before turning off and eventually stopping at Wingan Point in Victoria.
At which point, the girls were again assaulted. Camilleri slept, but later woke up and realised where he was. Beckett recalled in his statement to police. The girls began to question the men, asking if they were going to be murdered. Camilleri assured the girls they would only be tied up so the men could make their escape. During this time Beckett, recalled Camilleri repeating the words, "They can't go back", referring to his intention to murder the girls to avoid detection for their crimes.
The girls' hands were bound and they were then ordered along a remote bush track over rugged terrain to the creek. After the group walked alongside the creek for several hundred metres, Camilleri ordered the girls to remove their clothing and wash their bodies thoroughly to remove any evidence of the prior sexual assaults.
Afterwards, the girls were then ordered to lie on their stomachs before being retied and gagged. They were then separated by a distance of approximately 30 metres 98 feet as Camilleri and Beckett discussed what to do next. Camilleri demanded Beckett drown the girls but Beckett protested, saying it was unfair that he had to kill both. Beckett eventually complied when an argument occurred and Camilleri threatened to stab him if he did not comply.
Beckett attempted to first drown Barry, who was tied up near the creek. After a struggle, he became angry when his knee became wet. Beckett described the scene to police as follows. Beckett then ran up the embankment towards Collins who was tied to a tree and out of view of Barry who now lay dying in the creek bed.
Beckett slashed Collins throat several times then began to punch and kick her when he realised she had not died instantly from the knife wounds. After the murders, Camilleri, who was not present during the murders and was waiting in the car, asked Beckett "Did you see the demon?
Camilleri drove from the murder scene while Beckett slept in the vehicle, and woke as the pair approached Canberra. They stopped at Theodore Lookout on the Monaro Highway and burned their blood-stained clothing, ropes and gags used to restrain the girls. The pair later threw their knives from the Commonwealth Avenue Bridge into Lake Burley Griffin before returning to their homes in Yass.
On 8 OctoberCamilleri and Beckett drove to Sydney and stayed with Camilleri's brother for several days. The television was earlier removed by a local council worker. On 25 Octoberpolice located a car earlier stolen by Beckett in Canberra. Inside the vehicle, police discovered maps of the Bega area and items belonging to Beckett. Members of the Australian Federal Police arrested Beckett on 27 October on car theft charges and remanded him in custody. Police interviewed Camilleri the following day. Both men denied any knowledge of the girls' abduction and murder, and denied discarding a television set by the roide.
However, Camilleri admitted travelling with one that he had dropped at a St. Vincent De Paul store. On 12 November, Beckett made a full confession to police and agreed to guide them to the crime scene at Fiddler's Green Creek, where the remains of the girls' bodies were discovered. Camilleri, who was at this time also remanded in custody for breaching bail conditions, was awaiting trial at Goulburn Correctional Centre. He was again interviewed by police and informed of Beckett's confession.
I shot up heroin behind the shed. While the girls were drinking I was trying to OD. We drove around with the girls. I was asleep most of the time. Beckett later told me he had dropped both girls off at home.
I remember waking up and seeing the girl. We were parked in the bush.
I asked Beckett where we were and he said Victoria on the main road somewhere. I went off my head. I told him to go home, get the fuck out of here. Then I saw him walking out of the bush. He had blood all over him. Told me he cut his finger. The trial of Camilleri began on 15 February and ran until 10 April. A total of 70 witnesses were called.
The shirt was discovered at the rubbish dump in Old Wallagoot Road where the pair had first taken the girls. Police recovered evidence from almost every location the pair had taken the girls and assaulted them. Beckett was called to give evidence against his co-accused and spent five days in the witness box. Camilleri continued his claims that he was in a stupor when the girls were with the car, and that he barely remembered them, hoping to lay the entire blame for the murders on his associate Beckett. Camilleri was found guilty by the Supreme Court jury and on 27 April was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murders, never to be released.
In sentencing Camilleri to life imprisonment, never to be released, the judge remarked. Using the control which you clearly had over your weaker willed but equally evil companion [Beckett], you instructed him to perform acts that, in a somewhat perverse way, it could be said that you probably did not possess the courage to perform yourself. However, I consider that my duty is clear. Through your own actions, you have forfeited your right ever to walk among us again. Camilleri was 28 at the time of his crimes and 29 when sentenced.
He appeared before the Supreme Court in to appeal his sentence; the appeal was unsuccessful. On 26 JuneLindsay Hoani Beckett, who confessed to the murders, appeared in the Supreme Court of Victoria where he was arraigned and pleaded guilty to the murders of Lauren Barry and Nichole Collins. On 20 AugustBeckett was sentenced to life imprisonment with a non- parole period of 35 years.
At the time of Beckett's sentencing, his non-parole period was the longest ever given to a Victorian prisoner. LiverpoolNew South WalesAustralia. New Zealand. Parliamentary Debates Hansard.
