B.C. murders 'motive': Retired senior Mountie says answers could still come

B.C. murders 'motive': Retired senior Mountie says answers could still come”

Deese's brother, British Deese, said the family needed time to process the news that the suspects' bodies were apparently found.

A sense of relief and mystery has replaced weeks of fear in a remote northern Manitoba community where a lengthy cross-Canada hunt for homicide suspects Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky ended Wednesday with the discovery of two bodies, says Tessa Vanderhart.

At a Wednesday afternoon press conference Manitoba Royal Canadian Mounted Police assistant commissioner Jane MacLatchy told reporters that two male bodies believed to be those of Schmegelsky and McLeod were found at 10am by RCMP officers.

McLeod and Schmegelsky grew up together on Vancouver Island and worked together at a local Walmart before they set off together on what their parents thought was a trip to Yukon for work.

"We didn't have any information to pin point us to a specific search area where we could do a much more detailed search", MacLatchy said of the days before the discovery.

German said the work in Manitoba will be complete once those results are available and officers are finished collecting any remaining evidence there, and police in B.C. will continue the investigation.

CBC News also discovered that a former Sudbury, Ont., man now living in Alberta, Tommy Ste-Croix of Cold, helped the two men get their vehicle out of mud just a couple of days before the nation-wide manhunt began.

There were no confirmed sightings of the pair since July 22.

"There was significant evidence that linked our suspects to both crime scenes", said Kevin Hackett, the RCMP assistant commissioner in British Columbia.

In accused killers' B.C. hometown, question looms: Who were Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky?

The lifelong friends were charged with second-degree murder in the death of Vancouver botanist Leonard Dyck. The bodies of the three were found in mid-July near highways in northern B.C.

The teens' bodies were found Wednesday within 1 kilometer from where the unspecified items were discovered on August 2, MacLatchy said.

"To the families of everyone affected by the series of events over the last few weeks, I know it has been so very hard", MacLatchy said on Wednesday.

Prior to the start of the northern Manitoba search, the men were spotted in northern Saskatchewan driving the grey 2011 Toyota Rav4 found burned out near Gillam.

Gillam Mayor Dwayne Forman says it's time for his community to heal.

"Your lives have been disrupted", MacLatchy said to those living in the communities impacted by the manhunt. "Now the community can feel secure".

"The closure is here for Gillam and the Fox Lake area". "And surrounding areas of Ilford and York (Landing), knowing that these individuals are no longer a threat to our communities".

She would not comment on the condition of the bodies or speak to injuries.

On Friday, personal items belonging to the pair were found on a riverbank.

The motive for the three murders isn't known, nor is how or when the teens died.

"I am confidant there is no further risk to the public", he said.
