Bodies found in search for Canadian fugitives Bryer Schmegelsky, Kam McLeod

  • Lucas Fowler 23 and Chynna Deese 24 were found dead on the Alaska Highway in British Columbia on Monday 15 July

McLeod and Schmegelsky, who told their families they were going to Whitehorse in search of work, were initially believed to be missing after the camper truck was found. RCMP named them suspects in the three killings on July 23, warning the public they were armed and unsafe.

Two firearms were located with the dead men, police said, and a forensic analysis was being done to connect the weapons with the homicides in northern B.C.

The young men had initially been considered missing persons when a truck and camper they were driving was found burned a few kilometres from where Dyck's body was discovered at a highway pullout on July 15. Following the discovery, they were able to narrow down the search.

At about 10am on Wednesday Manitoba time (2am Thursday AEST) RCMP officers "located two male bodies, in the dense [bush], within 1km from where the items were found".

"I'm confident it is them but to identify them officially and to be sure we have to go to autopsy".

Police deployed tracker dogs, a drone and search planes equipped with infrared cameras to comb the hard, forested and swampy terrain, which was infested with mosquitos and home to bears and wolves.

Fowler said it's likely that investigators have canvassed the suspects' family, friends and social media accounts and are now focused on retracing the steps they may have taken in recent weeks to see if anything might have been discarded along the way.

The last confirmed sighting of the two teenagers was back on July 22.

Opposition Presidential Candidate Leading in Argentina's Sunday Primaries
Argentina's 2028-maturing, euro-denominated bond was down nearly 9 cents in European trading on Monday, Tradeweb data showed. Meanwhile, Macri and his running mate, Miguel Angel Pichetto, received 32.1% of the vote.

Police sent in specialized teams and began searching high-probability areas.

Monday's developments follow the release over the weekend of an interview by an Australian news program in which the father of one of the suspects describes the hard childhood of his son. A search of the river turned up little of interest, police said.

At a press conference Wednesday, RCMP assistant commissioner Jane MacLatchy said items linked to the suspects - including an abandoned aluminum boat - were found on the shoreline of the Nelson River last Friday.

Authorities then found the body of 64-year-old Leonard Dyck, a botany professor at the University of British Columbia, on July 19. It is unclear what convinced authorities to move the search to that area. They are also suspects in the murder of a third man in a separate incident. Nothing was found but those who searched the vehicle spotted camping equipment as well as maps.

A manhunt for the pair had spread across three provinces.

"There are polar bears, there are also cougars up in that area". He added that there was a chance of surviving without training.

Police had said on Tuesday (local time) they were investigating all possibilities including that the suspects might have drowned.

"This is like travelling from London to Moscow coupled with the fact that they were travelling in areas that are not highly populated", Assistant Commissioner Hackett said. RCMP say the investigations into the three murders are ongoing.
