Police are now investigating if the boat is connected to the teenagers and if they could have used it to continue to evade authorities by fleeing across the water. Their autopsies were done by Manitoba's medical examiner.

Shoihet said Thursday she's not aware of any notes that the suspects may have left behind. The bodies of the three were found in mid-July near highways in northern B.C.

"He would say things about how he would cut our heads off and then he would take a gun and put it in his mouth and shoot himself in front of us", she said. He said there is significant evidence that links both murder scenes.

He said there doesn't appear to be anything linking the victims.

"At the end of the day they will, I'm sure, provide some sort of a briefing to the public and certainly to the families to inform them of what has taken place".

The motives for the alleged murders also have yet to be determined.

Update expected today from BC RCMP on the autopsy results of two bodies believed to be those of murder suspects Kam Macleod and Bryer Schmegelsky.

Another survival expert also pointed out that the pair was facing many dangers in that area. A search of the river turned up little of interest, police said.

August 2 - The RCMP say they found a damaged rowboat on the Nelson River.

Four days later, authorities discovered the body of 64-year-old Vancouver resident Leonard Dyck on the side of the highway, roughly 290 miles away.

"This is like travelling from London to Moscow coupled with the fact that they were travelling in areas that are not highly populated", Assistant Commissioner Hackett said.

At first, police said the teens were missing. They were suspects in the killings of two backpackers, Chynna Deese, 24, and Lucas Fowler, 23.

Bray Wyatt's SummerSlam debut as The Fiend will haunt your nightmares
A move that we have seen used in recent weeks on legends like Kurt Angle and Mick Foley was a fitting way to take down Finn Balor. As for the match itself, it served its objective in re-establishing Bray Wyatt as a big star in the WWE.

That led to police discovering the two bodies on Wednesday morning.

No charges were announced in that investigation prior to the finding of the bodies.

Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky were found dead by police.

The teenagers drove the stolen RAV4 3000km east along Canada's north to Gillam and on July 22 dumped it in bushland and set it on fire. A similar search was done around Gillam and police remain in the area.

Brittany Greenslade, Senior Reporter at Global News Winnipeg, said the hard terrain hampered the search.

In the clip, Mr. Schmegelsky describes the hard childhood of his son, who went through his parents' divorce at a young age and didn't always have attention while growing up.

MacLatchy thanked Canadians their vigilance and for sending tips.

"We were still locking everything up, you know".

He thanked police across Canada and in the United States and Australia for assistance.

No one has been charged in the case.

"As a community we are going to pull together and support each other", Minions said.
