Gillam, MB (CKLQ) - R-C-M-P have confirmed that items found on the shore of the Nelson River in northern Manitoba are directly linked to two suspects wanted for killings in British Columbia.

Mounties would not disclose what the items located on Friday are, but say they were discovered nine kilometres from where a burned-out Toyota RAV-4 the pair were driving was found last month.

Bryer Schmegelsky and Kam McLeod are charged with second-degree murder in the death of University of British Columbia lecturer Leonard Dyck, and are also considered suspects in the shooting of Australian Lucas Fowler and his American girlfriend Chynna Deese.

Investigators have said it's possible the suspects are dead or inadvertently received a ride out of the region.
