60 Minutes cameras were there in the moments after he received word his son's body had been found.

"He was my only child. (I'll) never get to hug him again, never get to spend time with him again," Mr Schmegelsky said.

"At least I know where he is, his troubles are over, I'm sad that he felt he had to take that road trip."

Despite the evidence against his son, Schmegelsky is struggling to come to terms with the fact Bryer died as one of the most wanted men in Canada.

But he still wants more proof before he'll truly believe his son is a killer.

"We'll never know the answer. Everyone's so quick to judge… he might be a victim in all of this for all we know," he told Abo.

"I'm not going to say my son is a murderer until I get some facts."
