In a horrifying twist of events, Murdoch shot Falconio dead before handcuffing Lees and dragging her into his car.
She was able to escape the horrifying ordeal, and hid for five hours alone in the desert scrub - her Australian adventure had become her worst nightmare.
Speaking to Channel 9's 60 Minutes in an upcoming interview, Lees, 43, describes the shock they experienced when Murdoch turned on them.
‘We had no idea what was going to happen. We thought we had the rest of our lives together,’ she says.
'Pete got out of the Kombi... Who would expect it to be a gunman? Horror movies have been made about some of the events that happened to me.’
Peter Falconio’s body was never found following the attack, despite police searches which did manage to locate a large pool of blood.
Murdoch has maintained his innocent plea, and says he cannot help locate Falconio’s body because he was never there.
DNA evidence did identify Lee’s blood on Murdoch’s shirt, however, linking Murdoch with the crime scene.
In 2006 Murdoch was convicted of murder, and is serving a life prison sentence in the Northern Territory.
