Peter Falconio: Disappeared in 2001 in Australia

The other night I watched the horror flick, Wolf Creek 2 . I’m a big horror movie fan (go figure), and this one was pretty good and gross. My kind of movie. I read that this one and the first Wolf Creek were based on actual events, so of course, I had to Google it.

While doing so, I came across the true disappearance of Peter Falconio and became very intrigued with this case, so that’s why it’s now on this blog. Apparently, this case made major headlines in Australia and the UK, but I don’t recall ever hearing about it here in the States. There’s a lot of info out there, including the convicted killer’s criminal background, but I’ve kept the actual “About the Case” fairly short. You can always Google it, too. 😉
