Canada: Bodies of teen murder suspects found

Canadian police said on Wednesday they had found two bodies which they believe are of the fugitive teenage boys charged with killing a university lecturer, and who were also suspects in the murders of two tourists in British Columbia.

Police said they uncovered key evidence that helped narrow their search on August 2, when "items directly linked to the suspect" were found on the shores of Nelson River, the press release also stated.

RCMP assistant commissioner Kevin Hackett said in Surrey, B.C., "We believe they are in fact the individuals we were searching for". A similar search was done around Gillam and police remain in the area.

The teenagers from Vancouver Island, were suspected of killing Fowler, his USA girlfriend Chynna Deese and botanist Leonard Dyck along British Columbia highways last month and then fleeing 3000km west to Gillam, Manitoba.

Even with the apparent deaths of Kam McLeod, 19, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, it is incumbent upon the RCMP to keep pursuing their investigation as if they were going to take the case to court, says Wayne Fowler, a retired homicide detective with the Toronto Police Service.

At Iskut First Nation, less than 20 kilometres from the Dyck murder scene, band member Jodi Payne described a sense of relief and closure in the community.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said on Twitter: 'The search is over.

Gillam Mayor Dwayne Forman said people in the community have been on an emotional roller-coaster and are relieved the manhunt is over.

Minions said she takes "this kind of news very personally" since she is a mother, adding that she planned to reach out the families of Schmegelsky and McLeod. Linking arms and traversing ground, as is normally done in search operations, was out of the question, Assistant Commissioner MacLatchy said.

Multiple Democrats running for the presidential nomination have described Trump as a white supremacist, or said he supports them. Despite that, people have argued the movie will simply cause more divisions and will do little for the sake of unity.

"The closure is here for Gillam and Fox Lake area, but the closure for the victims' families is far from over", he said.

CBC News also discovered that a former Sudbury, Ont., man now living in Alberta, Tommy Ste-Croix of Cold, helped the two men get their vehicle out of mud just a couple of days before the nation-wide manhunt began.

"A normal child doesn't travel across the country killing people", Alan Schmegelsky told the Canadian newswire.

Police were investigating a photograph of Nazi paraphernalia allegedly sent online by one of the suspects.

Schmegelsky said his son wasn't a Nazi sympathizer, but thought the memorabilia was "cool".

Minions said the youth in the community of Port Alberni were affected differently "because many of them have gone to school with them [Schmegelsky and McLeod]", adding that counselling services would continue to be offered to everyone affected. Their bodies were found along the Alaska Highway on July 15 near a van they had been travelling in.

That particular conspiracy could be invalidated, depending on the results of an autopsy to determine how long they've been dead.

But investigators later deemed them to be suspects and details surfaced about their use of video games.
