YORK LANDING, M.B. – The RCMP have arrested Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky near York Landing Manitoba.
Sunday the RCMP received a tip from the Bear Clan Patrol group that the pair had been spotted at the York Landing landfill. The group was created to help in Winnipeg with Aboriginal security. The group volunteered to help with the hunt for Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky.
The RCMP immediately sent resources to the community, which is about 200 km southwest of Gillam.
On Tuesday, July 23, 2019, the RCMP named McLeod and Schmegelsky as suspects in the double homicide of Lucas Fowler and Chynna Deese. Their bodies were found 20km south of Liard River Hot Springs along the Alaska Highway on July 15, 2019.
Then on July 19, the RCMP say they found a truck that had been driven by McLeod and Schmegelsky south of Dease Lake. The vehicle had been burnt, and the body of Leonard Dyck was found at a nearby highway pullout.
Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky were charged on Wednesday with one count of 2nd-degree murder for the death of Leonard Dyck.
As a result of the charges, Canada-wide warrants have been issued for Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky. RCMP investigators across the country continue to share information with other law enforcement agencies as the suspects remain at large.
Until Tuesday, McLeod and Schmegelsky were considered missing. During the Tuesday press conference, the RCMP announced the two are now suspects in the three deaths in Northern B.C.
The pair were seen in northern Saskatchewan on Sunday, July 21 and then in Gillam Manitoba on July 22.
