Three men face murder charges

MISSING Person Squad detectives investigating the suspicious disappearance of Lakes Entrance man Bradley Lyons have charged three men with murder following the discovery of human remains on Thursday night.

The remains, which are yet to be formally identified, were located at a remote location at Fairy Dell near Bruthen following the arrest of two men in the Lakes Entrance area on Thursday.

Both men, aged 22 and 21, have each been charged with murder. A third man, a 53-year-old from Nyerimilang, who appeared before Bairnsdale Magistrates’ Court in relation to this investigation, was remanded in custody on other charges, and has now been charged with murder.

The charges follow an intensive investigation by Missing Persons Squad detectives with support from Bairnsdale Crime Investigation Unit after 30-year-old Mr Lyons was reported missing to police on December 11, 2018. The investigation is continuing.
