Royal Canadian Mounted Police Assistant Commissioner Jane Mac Latchy speaks at a news conference in Winnipeg Manitoba Wednesday Aug. 7 2019. Canadian police said Wednesday they believe two fugitives suspected of killing a North Carolina woman and her A

The teenagers from Vancouver Island, were suspected of killing Fowler, his U.S. girlfriend Chynna Deese and botanist Leonard Dyck along British Columbia highways last month and then fleeing 3000km west to Gillam, Manitoba. Maybe it was a murder-suicide or perhaps they died from the elements, he said.

Initially, the pair were reported missing themselves after their auto was found torched in British Columbia - but police then discovered the third body, and the Vancouver teens were named as formal suspects.

Police said on August 2 they found items on a Nelson River shoreline nine kilometers from where a burnt-out vehicle the suspects, Kam McLeod, 19, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, are believed to have used. "But to identify them officially, and to be sure, we have to go to autopsy", MacLatchy said.

Experts said McLeod and Schmegelsky, who were childhood friends, would have struggled to survive over the long term.

"Your lives have been disrupted".

This morning, at approximately 10:00 am, RCMP officers located two male bodies, in the dense brush, within 1 kilometre from where the items were found.

"We are speechless", he said in a text message, declining further comment.

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

"The closure is here for Gillam and the Fox Lake area".

"To lose someone so young and vibrant, who was travelling the world and just enjoying life to the full, is devastating", the family said.

Assistant Commissioner Jane MacLatchy said, "I'm confident that it is them".

"That same day, a damaged boat was also recovered along the Nelson River", police said.

On Sunday, RCMP sent dive teams into the river, which is wide, fast-flowing and powers several hydro-electric dams, however the underwater search proved futile.

The chaotic situation eventually ended when protesters allowed ambulance workers to take the man away on a stretcher. The man was later driven away in an ambulance after fellow protesters and volunteer medics carried him away.

At its peak, the investigation included members of the Canadian military, as well as drones, dogs, emergency crews and RCMP major crime units.

"We were describing it over the last couple of weeks as being some pretty dense bush and some pretty remarkable terrain - in my opinion that's nearly an understatement", said Manaigre, who participated in police searches after the bodies were found.

An item that "may be of interest to the investigation" was found Friday during a ground search by the RCMP in Gillam, Man., near the area where two bodies believed to be the B.C. fugitives were found.

They were found eight kilometers from a where a burned-out auto connected with them was found earlier.

Mr Fowler and Ms Deese of Charlotte, North Carolina, were shot dead on July 15 on the Alaska Highway about 300 miles from where Mr Dyck was killed.

Peter German, who retired from the RCMP in 2012, said it will be hard, but there is already some key evidence available that speaks to motive.

"Our current belief [is that there] was nothing that links our victims together".

The massive manhunt in northern Canada for two teenagers suspected of killing Australian tourist Lucas Fowler and his United States girlfriend Chynna Deese is over. But that expert said there was a 90 percent chance they were still alive.

Police have been hunting the pair for more than a fortnight.

That was about five miles from where their burned auto was located last month.

Alan Schmegelsky, father of Bryer, spoke to Australia's 60 Minutes about his self-published book, Red Flagged, which explains his son's upbringing and mental health.

He said the family believes they must have had engine trouble in their van.

"I'm so sorry all of this had to happen".
