Snowtown Serial Killer Launches Parole Action

Police_Line_Crime_Scene_2498847226.jpgSnowtown serial killer Robert Joe Wagner has launched Supreme Court action for eventual parole.

The 48-year-old is currently serving 10 consecutive life sentences for the infamous bodies in the barrels murders in the 1990’s.

He has lodged an application to have a non-parole period set which will be heard in the Supreme Court in Adelaide on Monday.

Wagner reportedly wants to have his non-parole period finalised so he can set a goal to work towards while serving time in jail.

He was arrested in May 1999, after detectives discovered eight bodies hidden in six barrels in a disused bank at Snowtown in the Mid North.
