Six people have now been charged with the murder of Lakes Entrance man, Bradley Lyons.

Missing Person Squad detectives charged two more people last Thursday night as part of the investigation into the suspicious disappearance and death of Mr Lyons.

The pair were charged with murder, kidnapping, false imprisonment and aggravated home invasion, and faced Bairnsdale Magistrates’ Court on Friday.

A 25-year-old Lake Tyers Beach man was arrested last Wednesday and charged with murder, false imprisonment, kidnapping, aggravated home invasion, and intentionally and recklessly cause serious injury.

Three men, aged 53, 22 and 21, were also arrested earlier this month and 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 in early December, 2018.

His remains were located at a remote location at Fairy Dell near Bruthen on March 14.
