RCMP say B.C. fugitives died in what appears to be suicides by gunfire RCMP confirmed Monday the two bodies belong to fugitives Bryer Schmegelsky and Kam McLeod, and the two died in what appears to be suicides by gunfire. The bodies were found Wednesday, ending a 13-day cross-country search for the two men from Port Alberni, B.C. Mounties had expressed confidence that the bodies belong to the men, but officers were not able to confirm the identities until autopsies were completed by the Manitoba Medical Examiner. The autopsies suggest both individuals were dead for several days before they were found, but the exact time of their deaths are not known.

Sgt. Paul Manaigre said RCMP have formalities to complete before they can officially identify the bodies. However, he said it's believed the bodies are those of the suspects.

More details could be released as soon as Monday by RCMP in B.C., where the men went missing in July, Manaigre said adding it will ultimately be up to Mounties in that province to release the info.

"Under the Fatality Inquiries Act, there's a few procedures that need to be carried out in order for us to … say with absolute certainty that these are the two people," Manaigre said.

"So we're just kind of waiting on those formalities to be done and then that information will be shared."

Police said on Aug. 7 they believed they'd found the bodies of McLeod, 19, and Schmegelsky, whose 19th birthday was Aug. 4, ending a lengthy cross-Canada search that made headlines around the world.

The two men are charged with second-degree murder in the death of botanist Leonard Dyck. The 64-year-old was found dead July 19 at a highway pullout about two kilometres from a burnt-out camper truck — believed to be driven by McLeod and Schmegelsky — south of the B.C.'s Stikine River Bridge on Highway 37.

The pair is also suspected in the killings of a young couple, Lucas Fowler, 23, an Australian, and Chynna Deese, 24, an American. Their bodies were found on Alaska Highway, south of Liard Hot Springs, B.C., on July 15.

Police scoured more than 11,000 square kilometres in northern Manitoba — an area about twice the size of P.E.I. — and logged more than 4,500 hours during the 13-day search, after a burned-out Toyota RAV4 was found near Fox Lake Cree Nation on July 22. Police believe the suspects had been driving the vehicle and confirmed it belonged to Dyck.

Police announced they were scaling down the search on July 31, after nine days of unsuccessful searching. But two days later, on Aug. 2, a damaged boat and several personal items linked to the fugitives were found along the Nelson River, which flows between Gillam, Man., and Fox Lake.

Drone spotted bodies after Flinders Rangers climbing tragedy

Drone spotted bodies after Flinders Rangers climbing tragedy The bodies of two men have been found at the bottom of a cliff near Moonarie Gap in South Australia's Flinders Ranges. Emergency services responded to reports of a climbing accident at Wilpena Pound, nearly 500km north of Adelaide, about 1pm yesterday. Fellow climbers had raised the alarm after the campsite of the missing men, aged 64 and 44, was left unattended. © 9News Fellow climbers raised the alarm after the pair's campsite was left unattended. The bodies were spotted by a drone in extremely remote and inaccessible terrain. The retrieval operation was suspended yesterday evening and will resume today.

The bodies were recovered one kilometre from where officers found undisclosed items directly linked to the suspects, and eight kilometres from the torched It’s not known how long it’ll take to get answers from the autopsies being conducted on bodies found in northern Manitoba believed to be two B.C

An autopsy is scheduled to be conducted in Winnipeg that will confirm both identity and cause of death, said Manitoba RCMP Assistant Commissioner Jane MacLatchy. According to MacLatchy, the bodies were found in the “dense bush” along the Nelson River at around 10 a.m. on Wednesday.

The bodies were found on Aug. 7 in dense brush, eight kilometres northeast of where the vehicle was found and one kilometre from where the personal items were located.

Manaigre said Manitoba RCMP remain in the area in case more leads develop to assist B.C. homicide investigators.

"We think we're kind of closing in on the end," he said. "Until we're certain that we're done here we've got to keep some resources in play in case they're needed."

Manaigre, who participated in police searches after the bodies were found, said the search was gruelling.

"We were describing it over the last couple of weeks as being some pretty dense bush and some pretty remarkable terrain — in my opinion that's almost an understatement," he said.

"It was incredible. The steep hills, you've got a fast moving river with very little riverbank. … It's unimaginable how … you could traverse that type of area."

Manaigre said there is still no indication of a motive in the B.C. killings.

That's going to be the biggest puzzle to solve in this investigation," he said. "And we hope we can get some answers on that question."
