RCMP say suspects in BC murders were not spotted in Yorkton Wednesday morning

The search continues for a pair of teenagers from BC suspected in three deaths.

The pair, who were believed to have been seen in Meadow Lake and Manitoba yesterday, were reported to have been in Yorkton Wednesday morning, but RCMP now say that is not the case.

Yorkton RCMP had  received reports Wednesday  morning concerning a possible sighting of 19-year-old Kam McLeod and 18-year-old Bryer Schmegelsky at a city business  just after 10 AM, but an investigation into the possible sighting resulted in officers saying the two were not in a car with Manitoba licence plates as had been reported.

RCMP said they believe McLeod and Schmegelsky  shot Lucas Fowler of Sydney, Australia, his girlfriend Chynna Deese of Charlotte, N.C., and then killed another man who has yet to be identified publicly.

Fowler and Deese, who had been on a road trip together in Fowler’s blue van, were found on a remote stretch of highway near the Liard Hot Springs on July 15. McLeod and Schmegelsky’s burned-out truck and the unidentified man’s body were found four days later near Dease Lake, B.C., more than 470 kilometres away from the first crime scene.

McLeod and Schmegelsky, both from Vancouver Island and on their way to Whitehorse to look for work, were originally considered missing by police. That changed Tuesday, though investigators wouldn’t say why.
