The ex-wife of a Jetstar pilot who has been charged with murdering two elderly campers died of a drug overdose after her husband left her for another woman.

Lisa Lynn had consumed a large amount of pills and vodka - despite being a non-drinker - when she was found dead at her Mount Macedon home, 64 kilometres north-west of Victoria, in 1999.

Close friends claim the woman had spiralled downwards after she was left by her partner Greg Lynn.

'I have never seen anyone adore a husband the way Lisa adored Greg,' a friend told Herald Sun.  

'She used to call him 'my darling'. She was completely heartbroken when he left. She wanted him back but he left her for another woman.'

Mr Lynn has been charged with the murder of Russell Hill, 74, and Carol Clay, 73, who vanished in the Wonnangatta Valley in March 2020.

A friend said they were shocked when they heard Mrs Lynn had been intoxicated when she died and described it as out of character as she rarely drank alcohol.

'She was way too strong-willed and loved their kids too much,' they said.

Daily Mail Australia is not suggesting Mr Lynn had anything to do with his ex-wife's death.

Mrs Lynn was a Qantas flight attendant who had two children. She was described as a grounded, 'salt of the earth type' of person.

Greg Lynn will appear in court Friday morning after an 'exhaustive and complex criminal investigation' into the deaths of Mr Hill and Mrs Clay.

One of Victoria's top cops says a vital piece of evidence is still missing. 

A trailer being towed by an off-road vehicle captured on CCTV the night secret lovers Mr Hill and Mrs Clay vanished in the Wonnangatta Valley in March 2020, is yet to be accounted for - and is believed to have been sold on Gumtree.

Police seized a Nissan Patrol belonging to Gregory Lynn, 55, on Monday when Special Operations Group officers dramatically arrested the Caroline Springs man after tracking his movements and flying into remote bushland by helicopter.

A subsequent search of his property did not uncover a trailer, which police believe could be the final piece of the puzzle, as forensic crews prepare to search for the pair's remains at a second 'crime scene' discovered on Thursday morning in the remote Great Alpine region.

In the hunt for human bones, specialist teams will also deploy ground-penetrating radar at Lynn's two storey home in Melbourne's West - the same technology being used in the search for missing NSW child William Tyrrell.

Assistant Victoria Police Commissioner Bob Hill said investigators are keen to speak to anyone who may have purchased a rusty silver or blue 7x5 ft trailer with off-road wheels between March 20 to July 2020.

'We believe the trailer was sold on Gumtree,' he said. 

Earlier this month, police made a public appeal for a blue late 90s Nissan Patrol - the same make and model police seized from Lynn during his arrest in Licola, about 100km south of the where the couple went missing.     

But Lynn's vehicle was coloured beige, not blue.  

Assistant Commissioner Hill said he's 'proud' of police efforts during the 20-month long police probe, but added the 'long haul' investigation is 'far from over' as the focus now turns to uncovering the couple's remains.

'We have located a specific area and we will establish a search parameter. 

'Police are hopeful we will be able to locate the deceased
