Jetstar pilot is charged with MURDERING missing campers 20 months after they disappeared without a trace










Pilot Gregory Lynn has been charged with the murder of two elderly campers who have been missing for 20 months. 

Secret lovers Russell Hill, 74, and Carol Clay, 73, haven’t been seen or heard from since they snuck away on a camping trip to Victoria’s remote Wonnangatta Valley on March 20, 2020.

The case looked likely to go cold, with no major breakthroughs or suspects – until now.

Lynn has been in police custody since Monday after being arrested in dramatic scenes where helicopters swooped on him at a campground.

Special operations group officers arrested the Caroline Springs man on Monday afternoon after tracking his movements and flying into remote bushland north of Sale. 

Earlier this month, police released images of a blue four-wheel-drive – believed to be a mid-to-late-1990s model Nissan Patrol – taken by a CCTV camera in the area at the time the pair went missing.  

Witnesses had reported a number of sightings of the vehicle. 

Although police released a detailed photo of the vehicle, it appeared to have its registration plate digitally altered, suggesting they knew exactly who owned the vehicle. 

Lynn has been stood down from his job with Jetstar saying it will assist investigators if needed.
