Allegedly murdered elderly lovers were left with false teeth, a charred ring and thousands of tiny bone fragments.


The blackened and dismembered remains of secret lover campers have been shown to jurors in the ongoing murder trial of former Jetstar pilot Greg Lynn.

Former Jetstar pilot Greg Lynn, 57, has pleaded not guilty in the Supreme Court of Victoria to the murders of Russell Hill, 74, and Carol Clay, 73, in the Wonnangatta Valley in Alpine Victoria on March 20, 2020.

On Wednesday, jurors endured gruesome images of what was left of Mr Hill and Ms Clay after Lynn burned, dismembered and scattered their remains in remote wilderness.

The jury heard Lynn admitted to detectives that he destroyed the bodies because he feared he would be wrongly accused of their murder.

Other images showed a blackened piece of «big toe» bone, a broken ankle, and a blackened and cracked tibia bone.

A ring believed to belong to Mrs Clay was also recovered from the scene.

The images were detailed by forensics expert Dr Soren Blau, who said the bones were among about 2,000 pieces of debris discovered by police at three sites, including the original campsite where Lynn claims the «tragic accident» took place.

The jury heard that at least 46 of these fragments came from the campers’ skulls, with many other fragments unable to be identified.

Lynn appeared to be taking notes during the harrowing evidence, which was shown on the court’s big screen.

On Tuesday, forensic entomologist Dr Melanie Archer told the jury that what was left of the campers had been «wiped out» by Lynn.

«The problem for the forensic pathologist is that the material that you need, the evidence that you need to help you make that decision, has been deleted,» she said.

“There are no toxicology samples, so you can’t look for a toxicology post.

“You are unable to examine the trauma due to the fragmentation of the remains.

«In the case of natural disease, there is no soft tissue left – it was not possible there.»

Dr. Archer said the problem was made worse by what was left after igniting the steam.

«The toxicological evidence and the soft tissue evidence that we would need to see cannot be seen in these highly altered and fragmented remains,» she said.

“So you remain undecided as the only option.

The jury had previously heard Lynn made full admissions to burning and dumping the campers’ remains in a hole in a fallen tree.

He identified the location to detectives himself after his arrest in November 2021.

The jury heard Lynn admitted disposing of the couple’s bodies in bushland after taking them away in his trailer.

The accused killer of an elderly couple claims it was Mr Hill who started the trouble that ended in tragedy.

The court heard that Mr Hill and Lynn argued about Lynn hunting deer so close to other campers.

Later that night, Lynn decided to turn up the volume on her car radio in an attempt to annoy Mr Hill, the jury heard.

It was about 10 p.m. when Lynn noticed Mr. Hill get into his car and steal his 12-gauge shotgun.

The jury heard that when Lynn tried to wrestle the firearm away from Mr Hill, the gun went off and Ms Clay was hit in the head.

When Mr. Hill saw what had happened, he dropped his gun and rushed toward Ms. Clay’s body.

Mr Dann said his client raised the gun and fired the remaining shots into the air before an enraged Mr Hill attacked him.

«The next thing is Mr Hill is coming towards him with a knife shouting at him ‘she’s dead,'» Mr Dann said.

«A fight broke out over the knife. Mr Lynn tries to fight back – they are locked in this struggle – and as part of this struggle both men fall to the ground and a knife goes through Mr Hill’s chest.’

The trial continues.
