The discovery of a wallet is believed to be the link that has moved the police investigation into the suspected murder of Natte Yallock sheep breeders John and Douglas Streeter to Vatmi Recycling in East Bendigo.
Workers at the site were told a wallet was found which could have been linked to the double homicide.
The workers said police arrived at the recycling plant about one hour ago.
They said workers were sent home and the plant's trucks were sent away.
Police have established a crime scene at the plant.
A forensics team arrived at 2.45pm to join the investigation.
John Streeter's wife Helen reportedly discovered the bodies in the garden of the Natte Yallock farmhouse in Streeter Lane, off the Moonambel-Natte Yallock Road, just before 6pm yesterday.
The men had gunshot wounds and police believe both were murdered.
Police and detectives worked through the night at the Natte Yallock crime scene.
Earlier, Bendigo district wool manager Adam Millard said he was shocked by the suspected murder of John and Douglas Streeter.
Mr Millard said the brothers were their 'regular selves' when he visited John Streeter's extensive sheep breeding property on Wednesday.
“They were just their regular selves. They were happy, relaxed,'' he said.
“I’m still in shock that this has happened.”
Mr Millard said the pair was very well known in the small town of Natte Yallock.
“The Streeters have been at Natte Yallock forever,'' he said.
“They were heavily involved in local community.
“I’ve only spoken to a few people but I’m sure the whole local community is in a state of shock."
Mr Millard said he was keen to find out more about the mysterious deaths.
“It will be good to see it resolved,'' he said.
“There are a lot of questions right now and nobody knows what happened.”
Natte Yallock is a small town of about 400 people, about 30 kilometres north-west of Maryborough.
The house in Streeter Lane, off the Moonambel-Natte Yallock road, is set back more than 500 metres from the road in a sparsely populated area with no neighbouring properties, the Ballarat Courier reported.
Several locals arrived at the crime scene during the night.
One woman said she knew the two men and was shocked to hear of “such sad circumstances”.
Police also confirmed the body of an elderly person found beside a road at Romsey last night was not being treated as suspicious.
