How hero detective Sergeant Brett Florence worked case of missing secret lover campers
Detectives will return to the rugged wilderness where two elderly campers were allegedly shot, stabbed and left to the unforgiving environment.
The search is the last entry on what has been a long ‘to do’ list for one of Victoria Police’s most experienced cops.
Former Jetstar pilot Greg Lynn, 56, was on Wednesday committed to stand trial over the couple’s alleged murder in the Victorian High Country in March 2020.
Covid restrictions and harsh weather conditions meant police left the mountains before they were satisfied all they could do had been done in the homicide investigations.
For 20 long months the disappearance of the campers captivated the Australian public while behind the scenes police worked to track down the suspected killer.
Outside courtroom 12 in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, a candid Brett Florence told Daily Mail Australia he was looking forward to taking a break after the day’s proceedings.
The Missing Person’s Squad detective had been working the case from the moment it landed on his desk in April 2020 – just weeks after the lovers vanished.
‘I’m taking two weeks off to build my race car,’ he said. ‘That’s what I love to do.’
