‘I thought I would die’: Backpacker, 26, who was ‘kidnapped and subjected to a two-day sex attack at the hands of the Gumtree Rapist, 54,’ relives the horrific ordeal

A Belgian backpacker who was allegedly kidnapped, raped and held against her will in an old pig shed in regional South Australia says she thought she would die during the ordeal.

The 26-year-old woman on Friday continued her evidence in the District Court trial of Gene Charles Bristow, 54.

The court has heard Bristow answered an advertisement she posted on Gumtree looking for temporary farm work in February 2017.

The woman said he offered her a job and picked her up from a bus stop at Murray Bridge, before driving her to his property at Meningie, 150km southeast of Adelaide.

She said he took her inside a disused pig shed and asked to check the soles of her feet for needle marks, then placed a gun to her back.

He bound her hands and feet and chained her to the ground before leaving her alone in the shed.

‘I was feeling terrible and I would think about my family a lot,’ she told the court.

‘I thought I wouldn’t see them again and that I would die.’

She described to jurors how she eventually managed to free her hands, and used her laptop to contact friends and family.
