Big twist in murder case


Former Jetstar pilot Gregory Lynn has admitted he covered up the deaths of 2 campers in Victoria 4 years ago but denies he murdered them. His version of events is pretty wild… During the trial’s opening day in the Supreme Court yesterday, Lynn’s lawyers said he had a run-in with 74yo Russell Hill, who had filmed Lynn with a drone to prove he was hunting too close to a campsite. They say tensions escalated when Hill grabbed a shotgun from Lynn’s car and it misfired during a struggle, causing the death of 73yo Carol Clay. And then Hill was allegedly killed in a wrestle with Lynn for a knife. The trial is set to last 6 weeks and more than 100 witnesses are expected to be called. Lynn was arrested in November 2021 after police found the remains of the pair more than 18 months after they were killed.
