RCMP find two bodies along the Nelson River


Gillam, MB (CKLQ) - Police still can't speculate on a motive for the slayings of three people in northern B-C.

But they will keep working to find one, and they hope today's autopsies on the two suspected killers found yesterday in northern Manitoba that ends a two-week manhunt will yield other clues in the case.

The bodies believed to be 18-year-old Bryer Schmegelsky and 19-year-old Kam McLeod of Port Alberni, B-C were found in dense brush near the shoreline of the Nelson River, within a kilometer from where a broken boat and other items linked to the men were found Friday.

Police have contacted the families of the three homicide victims -- Vancouver university lecturer Len Dyck, American tourist Chynna Deese and her Australian boyfriend Lucas Fowler -- to offer support.

Officers are also offering support to the families of the alleged killers.
