UPDATE: RCMP investigators believe Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky are considered to be armed and extremely dangerous. The two were spotted in Meadow Lake, Sask. on Sunday, July 21. The RCMP believe they are continuing to travel. If you see them, do not approach or take action. Immediately call 911.
The RCMP now consider two teenagers as suspects at large in suspicious deaths. Nineteen-year-old Kam McLeod and 18-year-old Bryer Schmegelsky have left British Columbia and were spotted in northern Saskatchewan. The pair were seen driving a grey 2011 Toyota Rav 4.
The teenaged pair are considered suspects in the shooting deaths of a 23-year-old Australian man named Lucas Fowler and a 24-year-old American woman named Chynna Deese. The two were dating and their bodies were discovered along the side of the Alaska Highway south of a popular hot springs tourist destination on July 15.
McLeod and Schemegelsky’s burnt-out truck was found four days later near the community of Dease Lake. The body of a man in his 50s or 60s was found about two kilometres south and Mounties are working to identify him. Originally considered missing, as their family had heard from them in days, the two are now considered suspects at large.
McLeod and Schemegelsky are described as six foot, four inches tall, and about 169 pounds. McLeod has dark brown hair and facial hair while Schmegelsky has sandy brown hair. The RCMP say it’s likely they have changed their appearances and ask anyone who sees them not to approach them. They may continue to travel somewhere, but the RCMP don’t know where.
They ask that the public consider the pair dangerous; do not approach them and call 911 immediately. Anyone with information can call the RCMP Major Crime Tipline at 1-877-543-4822 or (778) 290-5291. Mounties say they remain committed to providing updates on the situation in ways that help advance investigations or relate to public safety.
