RCMP find item that may be connected to McLeod and Schmegelsky investigation

RCMP find item that may be connected to McLeod and Schmegelsky investigation”

Police say Bryer Schmegelsky and Kam McLeod appeared to be dead for a number of days before their bodies were found in northern Manitoba but the exact time of their deaths isn't know. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) wrote in a statement that they were dead for "a number of days" before the bodies turned up in Manitoba last Wednesday.

Two firearms were also found near the area and police are analysing whether these weapons were connected to the homicides in B.C.

Manaigre says the area of the search extended to where a burned-out vehicle the pair travelled in was dumped, about eight kilometres from where the bodies were found.

The two teens were wanted in three northern B.C. deaths and were the subjects of a nation-wide manhunt that spanned more than two weeks and four provinces.

McLeod, 19, and Schmegelsky, 18, had been charged with second-degree murder in connection with the death of a Vancouver, B.C. man, Leonard Dyck, and were suspects in the murders of American Chynna Deese, 24 and her Australian boyfriend, Lucas Fowler, 23.

The search for McLeod, 19, and Schmegelsky, who would have turned 19 on August 4, covered 11,000 square kilometres in northern Manitoba alone - an area larger than Jamaica.

RCMP officers stand near the site where the burnt-out vehicle used by the two B.C. homicide suspects was found on July 22 during the massive police search near Gillam.

Officials hope that the results of the autopsies will lead to more clues in the case, he added.

Some police resources have remained in Gillam, searching for more evidence in the case. Their bodies were found on Alaska Highway, south of Liard Hot Springs, B.C., on July 15.

While the end of the investigation will bring closure to local residents, Forman says closure for the victims' families is far from over.

"We were describing it over the last couple of weeks as being some pretty dense bush and some pretty remarkable terrain - in my opinion that's nearly an understatement", said Manaigre, who participated in police searches after the bodies were found.

Manaigre said there is still no indication of a motive in the B.C. killings.
