RCMP search small Northern Manitoba community for B.C. murder suspects

RCMP say they can’t say for sure, but there was a credible sighting of what might have been two B.C. murder suspects in the northern Manitoba community of York Landing.

Members of the Indigenous watch group, the Bear Clan, say they saw two men who were not from around there at the town dump.

RCMP say Bryer Schmegelsky and Kam McLeod were last confirmed to be in Gillam a week ago.

York Factory Chief Leroy Constant says the mood in his community will remain tense until the suspects are caught.

They are wanted for the murder of a university professor and suspected of shooting an Australian man and his American girlfriend.
