Autopsy Confirms Identities Of Teen Murder Suspects Found In Remote Canada

The bodies were also found approximately 5 miles from where police located a burned-out vehicle they believe belonged to the suspects on July 22 and approximately 2,000 miles from where the murders took place in northern British Columbia.

Police said in a statement Monday that there were strong indications the young men had been alive for a few days during the extensive search near the town of Gillam.

Police said the two bodies were discovered in dense brush near the Nelson River in Canada, the Charlotte Observer reported.

Police also confirmed they found two firearms at the scene and were conducting forensic analysis to confirm whether they were connected to the three deaths in British Columbia that the pair were suspects in.

RCMP have stated that 19-year-old Kam McLeod and 18-year-old Bryer Schmegelsky are suspected of killing three individuals including Lucas Fowler, a 23-year-old Australian man, and Chynna Deese, a 24-year-old American woman. Then, on July 19, some 470 kilometres away, a Dodge Ram 250 pickup truck, with a camper, was discovered burned out along Highway 37 near Dease Lake, B.C. Dyck's body was nearby, though he was unidentified for several days.

RCMP say the next of kin have been notified and they have been offered support. McLeod and Schmegelsky were suspects.

"The assessment will review all the investigative findings to date, whether it is statements, evidentiary time lines, physical or digital evidence, and the BC RCMP have also have engaged our Behavioural Analysis Unit (BAU)", RCMP said.

Police sent in specialized teams and began searching high-probability areas. This touched off a national search that eventually focused on northern Manitoba, bringing heavily armed RCMP to Gillam and the Fox Lake First Nation.

The bodies were found one kilometre from where police found undisclosed items linked to the suspects, and eight kilometres from a torched vehicle they were driving.

Previously, the RCMP were tight-lipped about details surrounding the autopsies on Schmegelsky and McLeod and an item of interest was found near their bodies.

Al Schmegelsky, the father of Bryer, said in a weekend interview with Australia's 60 Minutes that he was "so sorry for what's happened".

The pair are wanted in connection with three homicides in Northern B.C. that all occurred during the week of July 15, 2019.

August 6 - The RCMP say they have found several items linked to Schmegelsky and McLeod on the shore of the Nelson River in northern Manitoba. Officials have confirmed to the National Post that this was a fake advertisement as the original boat is still in the possession of the RCMP.

While police have not determined an exact time of death, investigators believe that they were deceased "for a number of days" before their remains were discovered.
