Ex-Jetstar pilot Greg Lynn was arrested in Victoria’s high country after police heard him talking to himself about suicide.
Lynn, 56, appeared in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court this week charged with the murders of secret lover campers Russell Hill, 74, and Carol Clay, 73.
On Monday, the detective responsible for listening to 3150 secret recordings captured from Lynn’s wagon – a blue Nissan Patrol he later resprayed beige – revealed special operations group officers descended on Lynn in helicopters after he heard the accused killer talking to himself about possible self harm.
