RCMP complete search of river near Gillam, Man., for murder suspects

07 Août, 2019, 01:25 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

RCMP have ended their underwater search of the Nelson River after finding a damaged aluminum boat along the shores Friday afternoon.

On Sunday, RCMP sent dive teams into the Nelson River, which is wide, fast-flowing and powers several hydro-electric dams, as part of the search for McLeod and Schmegelsky.

Police say a roadblock has been set up in the Sundance, MB, area for ongoing search efforts.

The news comes after RCMP said last week they would be scaling back their manhunt in the Gillam area, where a burned-out vehicle the suspects had been travelling in was found.

The pair, Kam McLeod, 19, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, both of Port Alberni, British Columbia, have been on the run for almost three weeks with no confirmed sightings since July 22.

But the RCMP has declined to reveal what the items are, citing the need to "ensure the integrity of the investigation". His body was found near the suspects' auto, which was abandoned and set on fire, near the Fox Lake Cree Nation reserve near Gillam.

Tuesday's police disclosure sheds some light on weekend activities by the RCMP.

They are suspects in the deaths of American Chynna Deese, 24, and her 23-year-old Australian boyfriend Lucas Fowler. Their bodies were discovered on July 15 on a remote highway in northern British Columbia.

They have also been charged with second-degree murder in the death of Leonard Dyck, whose body was discovered over 400 kilometres away in Dease Lake, close to where their first vehicle was found abandoned and burned.

While several potential sightings of the two suspects have been reported to Ontario Provincial Police, there has not been a confirmed sighting for over two weeks.

Otherwise, anyone with information on McLeod and Schmegelsky is asked to contact the RCMP Major Crime Tipline at 1-877-543-4822, or 778-290-5291.
