Canadian Teenage Murder Suspects Found Dead, Police Say – The New York Times
The Canadian police said on Wednesday that they believed they had found the bodies of two teenagers suspected of killing three people in British Columbia.
Kam McLeod, 19, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, had been the subject of an intense two-week manhunt that riveted the country. An autopsy was underway to confirm their identities, Assistant Commissioner Jane MacLatchy, the commanding officer of the Manitoba Royal Canadian Mounted Police, said at a news conference.
But she said the police were confident the bodies belonged to the teenagers.
The bodies were found in northern Manitoba, the police said. Assistant Commissioner MacLatchy said the investigation had a breakthrough on Friday after police officers discovered personal items belonging to the suspects on the shorelines of the Nelson River. The police also found a damaged aluminum boat.
