Bodies of suspects in BC murders believed to be found by RCMP

RCMP believe they have found the bodies of 18 year-old Bryer Schmegelsky and 19 year-old Kam McLeod in northern Manitoba.

An autopsy is being conducted to confirm the identity of the bodies, which was found off the shore of the Nelson River, about eight kilometres away from their burnt out car.

The last sighting of the suspects was in Gillam, Manitoba on July 22nd.

RCMP found several items that were thought to be directly related to the suspects on Saturday, which caused the Underwater Recovery Team, but that search was lifted on Monday.

The two suspects were first reported missing before being charged with second-degree murder in the death of Leonard Dyck, and were also wanted in connection to the death of Australian man Lucas Fowler and his American girlfriend Chynna Deese.
