Canada manhunt: police searching for teen fugitives find two bodies | World news

The bodies of fugitives Kam McLeod, 19, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, are believed to have been found in northern Manitoba, Canadian police have announced.

The two young male bodies will be undergoing autopsy to confirm identity, Manitoba Royal Canadian Mounted Police assistant commissioner Jane MacLatchy told reporters.

MacLatchy said: “I’m confident that it is them, but to identify them officially and to be sure we have to go to autopsy.”

Schmegelsky and McLeod, from Vancouver Island, were suspected of killing Lucas Fowler, an Australian, his American girlfriend Chynna Deese and Canadian botanist Leonard Dyck along British Columbia highways last month and then fleeing 3000km west to Gillam, Manitoba.

Fowler, 23, and Deese, 24, were found shot dead and left in a ditch on the side of a highway on 15 July.

Dyck was discovered four days later on another British Columbia highway and 2km away from an abandoned and burning pick-up truck Schmegelsky and McLeod had been driving.
