RCMP find item that may be connected to McLeod and Schmegelsky investigation

The 64-year-old was found dead July 19 at a highway pullout about two kilometres from a burnt-out camper truck - believed to be driven by McLeod and Schmegelsky - south of the B.C.'s Stikine River Bridge on Highway 37. The couple had been shot. They were also wanted in the murder of a young tourist couple - Australian Lucas Fowler and American Chynna Deese. The investigation was centred around Gillam after a auto believed to have been used by the suspects was found burned and abandoned near the town. However, he said it's believed the bodies are those of the suspects.

On July 23, authorities named McLeod and Schmegelsky as suspects in the killings.

The gruelling search had Mounties and Canadian military trawling unforgiving Manitoba backcountry riddled with boggy swamps and clouds of insects.

While the RCMP have now found the bodies of the suspects, B.C. RCMP assistant commissioner Kevin Hackett previously told the Canadian Press the investigation is not over, as police never discovered a motive for the killings.

Hackett added that the homicide investigation generated more than 1,000 tips.

Following a two-week manhunt that took police from B.C.to the remote northern community of Gillam, Man., police last Wednesday announced that two bodies believed to be McLeod and Schmegelsky had been found in the "dense brush" near Gillam.

Head coach Eddie Jones said his focus for the four warm-ups is on "developing a team capable of winning in Japan". Heinz will be vice-captain and partners skipper George Ford at half-back, with Piers Francis at inside centre.

A police helicopter initially spotted a damaged boat along the Nelson River about two weeks ago and a follow-up search in the area uncovered the items directly linked to the two in what authorities described as very challenging terrain.

That discovery led officers to the bodies.

Manaigre says the area of the search extended to where a burned-out vehicle the pair travelled in was dumped, about eight kilometres from where the bodies were found.

Manitoba RCMP Sgt. Paul Manaigre said the search was punishing.

"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. "And we hope we can get some answers on that question".
