Northern B.C. deaths

Mounties said earlier this week that 19-year-old Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky, who is 18, had been seen in Meadow Lake a week after the bodies of Australian Lucas Fowler and his American girlfriend, Chynna Deese, were discovered along the Alaska Highway in northern B.C.

Schmegelsky and McLeod have been charged with second-degree murder in the death of 64-year-old Leonard Dyck, a sessional lecturer at the University of British Columbia.

The teenagers are wanted for three murders in northern B.C. last week.

The duo's torched Toyota RAV4 was found in scrub near Gillam on Monday evening and there have been no reports of stolen cars, leading authorities to believe they are still in the area and may have fled into bushland.

Courchaine says police are going door to door in Gillam and on the Fox Lake First Nation looking for leads as to where the suspects may be.

"We can confirm that the current photo circulating online of a man posing with the front page of yesterday's paper is not one of our suspects", RCMP said via social media July 26.

"It is possible that someone may not have been aware of who they were providing assistance to and may now be hesitant to come forward", Courchaine said. Instead, call 911 or local police immediately.

The RCMP says Bryer Schmegelsky and Kam McLeod may have left the area of Gillam, Manitoba thanks to help from someone who didn't know who they were.

RCMP confirmed it is connected to the manhunt for Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky.

The RCMP also confirmed a photo that became viral on social media of a man with an appearance similar to McLeod was not the fugitive.

Courchaine said officers have already examined "high probability areas of interest" and will continue to follow up on the over 120 tips they've received.
