Two bodies have been located by authorities searching for the pair who killed Australian man Lucas Fowler and his American girlfriend Chynna Deese.
The pair was murdered on a Canada highway in July, and since then, Kam McLeod, 19, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, have been on the run.
The bodies of the wanted teens were discovered in dense wilderness near the shores of the Nelson River, according to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
Specialized RCMP teams begin searching nearby high-probability areas, leading officers to the discovery of the two male bodies, in the dense brush, within 1 km from where the items were found. #rcmpmb— RCMP Manitoba (@rcmpmb) August 7, 2019
They were found in the central province of Manitoba not far from where items linked to the suspects were found.
McLeod and Schmegelsky were wanted over the murders of Lucas and Chynna, as well as Canadian biology professor Leonard Dyck, 64.
Above all however, it was a search that could only be successful if we had strong public engagement and support. Thank you to all Canadians for remaining vigilant, for calling us with information and most importantly, for being our partners. #rcmpmb— RCMP Manitoba (@rcmpmb) August 7, 2019
