Be warned, this episode covers some seriously fucked up shit. This episode will discuss paedophila, sexual abuse, assault, torture, murder, dismemberment, and many other horrific things. Listener discretion isn’t just advised, it’s mandatory.
We explicitly stated at the start of this season that we weren’t gonna cover Snowtown… and yet here we are.
The Snowtown murders, or the Bodies in the Barrels murders, is the name given to a series of killings committed in the nineties in Adelaide, South Australia. Only one of the murders occurred in Snowtown itself.
In a state known for its weird murders, Snowtown was something else. The bodies of eight people were found in barrels full of acid in a disused bank in the small country town, and four other murders would later be linked to the crime. The investigation would reveal that the crimes were the work of a man named John Bunting and his group of friends, motivated by Bunting’s twisted obsession with killing paedophiles. Only two of the twelve were paedophiles, though. The others were killed because they had knowledge of the murders, or to access their Centrelink payments, or simply because John Bunting didn’t like them.
In this episode, we’ll discuss the police investigation that led to the discovery of the bodies in the barrels. In part two, we’ll go into detail about the murders and the subsequent trial.
