Police Believe They Have Found The Bodies Of The BC Murder Suspects

Autopsies will be done in today in Winnipeg on the bodies believed to be the young suspects in three murders last month in northern British Columbia. The remains were found by RCMP yesterday in dense brush near the Nelson River north of Gillam in northern Manitoba following a massive two-week manhunt. Mounties believe the bodies are those of Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky of Port Alberni, B.C.

Gillam Mayor Dwayne Forman said it’s no surprise the men were found dead in the area’s “non-forgiving terrain.” Police say the discovery should bring some measure of relief to the families of the three slain, and to Manitoba’s Gillam and Fox Lake communities where officers have focused a two-week manhunt.

The teens were facing a second-degree murder charge in the death of a Vancouver university lecturer and were suspects in the shooting deaths of an American tourist and her Australian boyfriend. While the probe is ongoing, investigators admit they may never discover a motive for the killings.
