SES volunteers assisted police today with a search of a recycling plant in East Bendigo after a wallet was found yesterday.
Detective Sergeant Sol Solomon told the Bendigo Advertiser it was an "extremely lucky break" an employee at the plant had found John Streeter's wallet.
"He found the wallet and was in the process of trying to track the person down when he recognised the address on the driver's license and had heard the news," he said.
The wallet was believed to have been taken from the victim after the murder and dumped in a bin somewhere between the crime scene and the Bendigo area, Detective Solomon said.
On Friday a number of people were questioned, but none were treated as suspects, Detective Solomon said.
He said there were still no clues as to any motive behind the killings.
A community continues to mourn the deaths of two brothers gunned down on Thursday at their family farm north of Avoca.

Detectives from the Homicide Squad arrived just before 10pm and worked through the night to determine what had happened to the respected farmers.
Yesterday afternoon a wallet found at a Bendigo recycling plant was being linked to the double murder, while police continued to scour the crime scene at Natte Yallock.

Many spoke of seeing the men just days ago.They are now battling to come to grips with what has happened.
It’s believed a wallet found in Bendigo may hold the latest clue in the baffling double-murder mystery of brothers John and Doug Streeter.

It’s been reported they suffered a number of gun shot wounds.
Police immediately established a crime scene and the Homicide Squad arrived just before 10pm.
Detectives worked into the night and continued their investigation at first light on Friday.
A van carrying video recording equipment arrived late morning, adding to the forensic data collected from the scene.
A crime scene guard at the entrance to Streeter Lane, about 800 metres from the murder scene, was a permanent fixture on Thursday night and Friday.
Later, detectives switched their focus to a secondary crime scene established at a Bendigo recycling plant.
The Bendigo Advertiser understands a wallet was found within the plant that may be linked to the double murder more than 90 kilometres away.
It was not known last night if the wallet belonged to one of the victims, or a third party.
Police did not say if they had arrested a suspect, if anyone was charged or if anyone had been interviewed in relation to the killings.
Murder-suicide was yesterday ruled out as a cause.
Police converged on the Vatmi Recycling plant in Bendigo East just before 3pm.
Workers at the recycling plant said police arrived at the site and cordoned off an area.
They were told a wallet was found which could have been linked to the double homicide.
Workers were sent home and the plant’s trucks were sent away.
Police were on scene well into the evening yesterday.
Detectives did not call a press conference yesterday or issue any fresh calls for witnesses to the crime.
The Streeters’ farm house is the only property on Streeter Lane, which is a no-through road.
The lane ends at the small weatherboard property, which sits just east of the Pyrenees ranges.
A white ute with a blue tray was visible parked outside.
About four kilometres east is the town of Natte Yallock, which consists of little more than a church, primary school, football club and fire station.
In between the town and the property is the cemetery, where at least three generations of the Streeter family already lay.
There will no doubt be two more in the coming weeks.
