Manitoba RCMP say that autopsies have confirmed the two bodies found in northern Manitoba, last Wednesday, are 19-year-old Kam McLeod and 18-year-old Bryer Schmegelsky.

A follow-up search of the area uncovered items linked to the teens and eventually to their bodies.

An ad on Kijiji appears to offer the boat allegedly used by the triple murder suspects from B.C. for $5,000.

Police charged the two teens in Dyck's death.

"It's huge to be able to hopefully give some people the opportunity to exhale and to hopefully go back to being normal and not be afraid of who is out in the woods", she said.

McLeod and Schmegelsky were facing a second-degree murder charge in the death of Leonard Dyck, a university lecturer from Vancouver.

Fowler and Deese were found shot dead along the Alaska Highway near Liard Hot Springs, British Columbia.

Police are continuing to investigate the deaths of Deese, Fowler and Dyck.

Investigators, for instance, still are trying to determine a motive - and that will be hard, Hackett said.


Two guns were also found near the area.

Manitoba RCMP confirmed on August 7 that officials had located bodies believed to be Schmegelsky and McLeod during a foot search of the area, approximately 8 km away from where the burnt vehicle was located last month, near Fox Lake Cree Nation.

MacLatchy said there is a sense of relief for families of the victims involved and the communities in the area.

Canadian police say they believe two teenage fugitives suspected of killing a North Carolina woman and her Australian boyfriend as well as another man took their own lives amid a nationwide manhunt.

The former fugitives were initially feared missing when their burned-out truck was found July 22 on the side of a remote highway. A forensic analysis is underway to confirm the weapons are connected to three homicides in northern B.C. that the Port Alberni teens were wanted in connection with.

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

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).

The RCMP have said they still do not know why Mr Fowler, Ms Deese and Mr Dyck were killed.

The BC RCMP says once they have completed that review within the next few weeks, they will be providing the families with an update with respect to the totality of the investigations and then releasing the information publicly.
