How he allegedly killed them or what his motive was were not revealed during a hearing at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court, where prosecutors and Lynn’s defense team are testing the evidence against him.

Lynn denies the allegations.

Lead investigator Detective Sergeant Brett Florence is expected to complete his testimony when the case continues Wednesday afternoon.

He is the last witness before Magistrate Brett Sonnet must decide if there is enough evidence to send Lynn to trial in the Supreme Court of Victoria.

Russell Hill and Carol Clay were reported missing after going camping at a remote site in the Wonnangatta Valley region of the Victorian Alps in March 2020.

Important parts of Florence’s testimony are deleted from publication.

Lynn’s attorney, Dermot Dann KC, obtained an order restraining the publication of details of his client’s four-day police interview, a July 2020 police statement, and a recorded conversation with police.

He stated that the contents of this evidence could be considered potentially explosive and argued that they posed a real and substantial risk of prejudice to the administration of justice.

Among the details released during a four-day committal hearing were allegations that Lynn killed Hill and Clay – childhood sweethearts who reunited later in life – sometime after 18 hours on March 20 at their Bucks Campground.

In a summary of some of the evidence, police claimed that the circumstances of the couple’s death and Lynn’s behavior afterwards were consistent with his intent to kill them, or at least cause very serious injury.

It is alleged that Lynn contaminated and staged the crime scene – setting fire to the camp to intentionally destroy evidence.

He is also accused of removing evidence and depositing the couple’s remains in a separate location near Dargo.

“In May 2020 and/or November 2020, the accused returned to the bodies of Hill and Clay, where he further tampered with the human remains to dispose of the deceased,” according to a police summary.

“It involved burning them, scattering them and partially interrupting them.”

Listening devices were installed in Lynn’s home and car in Caroline Springs, and he was reportedly recorded having conversations with himself, referencing the deaths of Hill and Clay.

The couple’s remains were located on November 29, 2021.
