RCMP to make ‘significant announcement’ in B.C. murders manhunt

Items linked to alleged northern B.C. murderers found on shoreline in Manitoba

On Wednesday, Assistant Commissioner Jane MacLatchy - commanding officer of the Manitoba RCMP - said police in northern Manitoba had "located two male bodies in dense brush".

An autopsy is being scheduled in Winnipeg, both to confirm the bodies' identities and shed light on the cause of death - about which no information was given on Wednesday.

Police also consider the men suspects in the shooting of Australian Lucas Fowler and his American girlfriend Chynna Deese, who were found dead on the Alaska Highway near Liard Hot Springs, B.C.

Schmegelsky and McLeod were charged on July 24 with the murder of Dyck.

After dumping the auto on July 22 near Gillam, McLeod and Schmegelsky vanished, with no confirmed sightings announced by the RCMP since, despite a massive search of the wilderness and in neighbouring provinces.

A press release from the RCMP said they will make a "significant announcement" on the case at 2 p.m. local time (3 p.m. ET). The vehicle McLeod and Schmegelsky had been driving had been abandoned and was engulfed in flames about a mile from where Dyck's body was recovered. They arrived in the small Manitoba community on Saturday and began "a thorough underwater search of significant areas of interest", according to RCMP Manitoba.

Britain Will Join US in Gulf Naval Mission
Guards boats were patrolling the Gulf to control traffic and detect illicit trade, it said, without identifying the seized vessel. Last month Britain proposed a European-led maritime protection force, but European countries have been reluctant to join.

A dive over the weekend had failed to find any further trace of McLeod or Schmegelsky in the river, close to the isolated town of Gillam.

On July 23, authorities named McLeod and Schmegelsky as suspects in the killings.

Friends since childhood, the two men had told their parents they were headed to Yukon and Northwest Territories in search of work.

The RCMP has given an update on the search in the Gillam, Manitoba area for two British Columbian murder suspects.

No additional items were found and the RCMP Underwater Team finished their search on Monday.

MacLatchy said there is a sense of relief for families of the victims involved and the communities in the area.
