It can happen...


Yeah, I saw that, thankfully no one seriously hurt.
(Edit: missed the reference to internal injuries, I read the ABC story online, hopefully all are OK, but my point below still stands.)
Sounds more like a d1ckhead than malicious intent though, he's lucky the outcome wasn't worse.

In your scenario re RH and CC, this incident indicates even if GL did drive into the tent, there's no guarantee he'd kill, or even seriously injure, one or both.

That’s right. So maybe it wasn’t intended to kill, just frighten. Maybe he thought they were off somewhere else at the time. And got just a bit of a shock when he heard a scream, or checked the damage.

This couple were in a swag.


An Australia Day paddock party, a reunion for a group of 19-year-old school friends before they went their separate ways, to university and work.

But something went very wrong.

By sunrise, two young people were dying, their families and friends devastated and a community was in shock.


At around 4:45am, a 17-year-old reversed his ute and ran over two sleeping teenagers, sharing a swag on the ground next to a stockyard fence. It was an accident, but the driver responsible had broken the law. He didn't have a licence and had been drinking throughout the night.



Edit: A few years ago

He might try to spin some kind of defence but after what we know he did to them? I don't think anybody would buy it.

I still reckon it's a longshot scenario, but admire your tenacity sticking to it. 🙂

But - how were they killed? is the most important question.

It's possible the forensic pathologist on behalf of the coroner might not find a cause of death .. because he burned them. And if they can't find a cause of death, it means they probably weren't run over or shot.

Unless he’s already talked about the murder. He must’ve described the location after his arrest for the cops to go straight there

If Lynn's told the police how they died, his story will need to match up with the forensic pathologist reports. He might have told them everything, I doubt it but he may have.

It’ll also be interesting to find out if he is being looked at for being responsible for other crimes.
I read elsewhere that he had a nasty temper and did shocking things in front of people.
His first wife had a pet pig & after an argument he slit its throat. There was a neighbour who had some disagreement with GL and his dog was found with its throat slit. His first wife died from a cocktail of drugs and alcohol but apparently was strictly a non drinker.

He will be looked at for other crimes apparently, John Silvester or Sly of the Underworld mentioned it in on radio.

Nothin' gets me more riled up than country music. On my first visit to (mentioned in another thread) Crescent Head I met a(nother) guy who heard me playing guitar in my tent and invited me over for a jam. I get to his onsite van and it turns out he has a number of gold records... How the f*** do you jam with a guy that has gold records, especially in a genre you hate with a passion??? https://www.macleayargus.com.au/story/2052939/les-partell-joins-country-music-elite/

Detest it too.

What happens when you play country and western music backwards?

You get your wife back, your house back, your truck back and your dog back.

How much he say without the advice of this lawyer (McLennan) ?

Hopefully he doesn’t play the mental health or insanity card. If he’s functioning enough to be a family man and fly aeroplanes he’s got enough brains to know that murdering someone is a pretty naughty thing to do. Then try to cover his tracks afterwards

You answered your own question. If he can fly planes and be a check captain he's sane enough.

I was kind of hoping after being off the grid for a week that I'd come back to some news of developments/identification/anything....but not a peep. I wonder if the families have at least had some news of positive identification? Must be an absolutely harrowing time for them.

His lawyers come trial time though could use the mental card though.
He knew perfectly what he was doing the whole time

It's obviousky the same blue 4wd. But I hadn't seen this detailed pucked up before. A white decal on the rear right hand window.

Also the the police image seems tightly cropped, potentially to obscure the shovel on the roof rack. Which ties in with them apparently obscuring the number plate.
Some snaps from Map View in the side street. A very well maintained shovel on the car.
