The Canadian police say that the men Kam McLeod (18) and Bryer Schmegelsky (19) have robbed themselves of their lives. Bodies of the pair were found on Wednesday after a two-week whisk. They were suspected of three murders along the highway.
McLeod and Schmegelsky are said to have killed three people in British Columbia. The Australian Lucas Fowler and his American girlfriend Chynna Deese were shot by the duo, the police have not yet released information about the death of 64-year-old Canadian Leonard Dyck.
Agents also found two firearms on the bodies of the Canadian suspects. Agents therefore assume that suicide with the weapons is the probable cause of death.
The men were last seen in the north of Manitoba at the end of July, some three thousand kilometers from their home. They were stopped there during a routine police check.
Then the Canadian police force set up several huge searches. The majority of them remained without the desired result, but in the end officers on the Nelson River found McLeod and Schmegelsky stuff and their burnt-out car. The bodies were found 9 kilometers away from the vehicle.
Schmegelsky's father indicated in an interview with Australia's 60 Minutes that he finds it terrible what happened. The Deese family wrote on Facebook to accept and forgive him.
