MAFS Samantha Moitzi on Ivan Milat

A well-placed source informed the news outlet on Monday (21st March 2022), “Al wanted to watch Wolf Creek one night and things turned awkward really fastly”. Perkins allegedly suggested it would be ‘fun” to watch the movie because he “had not watched it yet” and thought a scary film would “aid their bond”. The insider stated that “He had absolutely no hint about her family. It was really awkward. Sam was hesitant but just had to inform him. He was gobsmacked.”

The Australian cult horror film, starring John Jarratt, was inspired by the real-life murders committed by Milat which had happened in the early 1990s. As per the on-set source, Moitzi was “worried” about discussing the subject on camera, so informed Perkins privately instead. The family link will not be addressed on the Channel Nine show.

She wedded her spouse Gerry in the year 1964. The duo had 2 children and later parted her ways. A source informed a news outlet that “Shirley used to take her grandchildren to the jail her brother on several occasions.” Milat killed 7 backpackers and hitchhikers between the year 1989 and the year 1992 in the Belanglo State Forest, south of Sydney, and was suspected of murdering others.
