The charge is murder not manslaughter so the police must be confident in regards to evidence or some form of confession.

It will be interesting whether we ever hear the real story which I’m not sure we e we will? You would imagine if he is charged with murder in this case he becomes a suspect in the other potential disappearances and incidents around similar area?

I was just running this through my head. I wonder if there was a confession to this effect or if it is a coercion tactic to get him to reveal more details.

So hard to tell. It feels like a coercion tactic but again we really have no ******* idea why GL *allegedly* did what he did

That could be a very good reason why he doesn't want them to find the bodies for the story they might tell the forensic pathologist. If it's a good hiding spot, there might be others there as well.

Did we find out if he was connected to the shovels they found on Hotham? If they can connect him to the shovels, he might have stashes all over.

if any possiblity of there being a history of other unfortunates, a pre-prepared, favoured site would shorten the time frame for disposal.
and if the shovels are connected to this or any other matter, why two??
a spare?
one for an accomplice?
victims made to dig own grave?

Trailer now described as 7x5 "rusty silver/blue".
Everything changes colour in this story.

Hopefully someone comes forward confirming they purchased it.

Looks like another busy day tomorrow and in coming days, between court appearance(s), remand, search for bodies, etc

Surely trailer transaction shouldn't take long to surface either.

Could be that his GPS has all of his tracks logged going back. I'd back it in. If he uses an Android phone there's probably some Google location info available as well. Possibly has a few 'starred' places as well so may not have confessed.

He's a pilot, wouldn't he know to turn all his off and if he has to use GPS or maps use his victim's?

If he can be traced to those areas when it happened yes.

Absolutely stunned that it is two counts of murder. How does a 20 year airline pilot end up murdering 2 totally unconnected and random elderly couple? Especially out in the middle of nowhere. I envisaged an accidental death of one of the couple and maybe a murder of the second to cover it up.

Police would I assume be extremely hesitant to charge someone with the highest charge possible in an effort to coerce them into a confession. Lawyers could have a field day on him feeling pressured to confess something he hadn't done. Also need to keep in mind the double jeopardy laws - if they can't make the charges stick and they find further evidence, he can't be done for murder again.

You're not a killer trying not to get caught after murdering two people.
This guy kept the same car with the black PVC pipe on top. His GPS will have routes, waypoints, breadcrumbs and stars all over the place I'm betting.

PS. His car has that rear fender body kit front piece missing just like the Patrol in the pics pics posted by Jamie007 earlier.

I know many people who knew Lisa, I really hope they open her case again as a result of this.

While I don't necessarily think it's related to this, I'd love to see the Nils Becker case looked into again. I've never bought that case being just a missing person

A few hypothetical options here:-
  • Lynn is hiding in the bush waiting for deer to come past and shoot.Hill & Clay are mistaken for deer and accidentally shot dead.
  • Hill & Clay are camping, hear gunshots or a drone or some disturbance and go and confront Lynn for shooting close to them / flying a drone. Lynn snaps and murders Hill & Clay.
  • Hill & Clay are asleep in their tent, Lynn is driving along and somehow runs over their tent. He panics, puts the bodies in the trailer and burns the tent. Disposes of bodies at another remote location.
  • Hill & Clay are bushwalking nearby their tent and discover Lynn with some sort of illegal cache (eg drugs or explosives or weapons). Lynn doesn’t want to get in trouble with police and forever silences Hill & Clay.
  • Hill & Clay were in the wrong place at the wrong time and Lynn has previous form for Murder but not yet been caught.
  • or any number of other bizarre reasons

BTW he may not have been the original aggressor if there was an altercation, but he won that particular battle.

You're a car person, I'm not. Does the Nissan wagon model he was driving come with factory GPS? Or did they start doing that in the later models?

Same. And that man Conrad, whose little white car was found parked on the side of the road near Bulla in similar circumstances to Russell's in that it was locked and wallet/purse inside. The man had simply vanished and left his car on the side of the road.
