Police say manhunt suspects killed themselves, guns found near bodies in brush

Father Of Canadian Triple Murder Suspect Says He’s Waiting For Further Proof Bodies found in Canada are confirmed as wanted killers; cause of death appears to be suicide by gunfire

Police said there were "strong indications" the fugitives were alive for a few days during the intensive search of the Gillam area.

Police also confirmed that two firearms were located with their bodies.

Investigators say they are now assessing all the findings in the cases so far "in order to gain more clarity" into what happened to Dyck, Fowler, and Deese.

McLeod, 19 and Schmegelsky, whose 19th birthday was on August 4, from Port Alberni, B.C., were facing a second-degree murder charge in the death of Leonard Dyck, a university lecturer from Vancouver.

As police searched for clues to the killers' whereabouts and panicked residents shuttered their homes, the body of University of British Columbia professor Leonard Dyck was discovered four days later in northern British Columbia, a few hundred miles away from the first crime scene.

"This is like travelling from London to Moscow coupled with the fact that they were travelling in areas that are not highly populated", British Columbia RCMP Assistant Commissioner Kevin Hackett said. McLeod and Schmegelsky had not been seen since July 22, just before police discovered their charred vehicle in a remote area.

The assessment will review all the investigative findings to date, whether it is statements, evidentiary timelines, physical or digital evidence, and the B.C. RCMP have also have engaged our Behavioural Analysis Unit (BAU).

He said that despite the risks, a crisis of the magnitude seen during the previous recession "would be a great surprise". Trump's new 10 percent levy he announced July 31 also figured prominently in Goldman's downbeat assessment.

McLeod and Schmegelsky themselves were originally considered missing persons and only became suspects later. Officers converged on the area to begin what would be a two-week search.

McLeod and Schmegelsky, who were childhood friends, had led police on a more than 3,000km chase halfway across the vast country to Manitoba province.

The bodies were found in dense brush approximately eight kilometres from where a burnt-out stolen RAV4 was located outside Gillam, Man.

Police announced they were scaling down the search on July 31, after nine days of unsuccessful searching. They also found a battered aluminum boat.

In an interview with Australia's 60 Minutes television program, Alan Schmegelsky, Bryer's father, said he could understand the pain of the families who'd lost loved ones.

Mr Fowler and Ms Deese were found shot to death on July 15 after their campervan broke down on the Alaska Highway near Liard Hot Springs. The teens were dead for a number of days before their bodies were discovered, according to the release. He described it as a novelization of his son's troubled life and his numerous encounters with police and courts, and said he wanted to highlight how what he called a "broken system" shaped him and Bryer.

That led to the discovery of several items police were able to "directly link" to Schmegelsky and McLeod on the riverbank - just eight km from where they ditched their getaway auto.
