Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, and his long-time friend Kam McLeod, 19, were named as suspects in the murders of Australian man Lucas Fowler, 24, and his American girlfriend Chynna Deese, 23, as well as an older man last week, and have driven more than 1,100 miles on the run from Canadian police.

Lucas Fowler, American Chynna Deese Murder

The couple had been travelling through northern British Columbia on a dream road trip when they were found shot to death alongside their blue Chevrolet mini-van on July 15.

Curtis and Sandra Broughton, who are believed to be among the last people to have seen Mr Fowler and Ms Deese alive, have told police of assisting the pair after their van broke down on the side of the road on July 14.


Mr Schmegelsky said the last contact he had from the teens was a text message from his son on July 12.

It read: “We are going to Alberta today so I won’t have internet for a while. I’ll talk to you when I can”, he told CHEK News.

“Now, he (Bryer) has relatives who live in Red Deer (Alberta), so I just assumed that’s where they were going. I find out my kid was in northern BC (British Columbia) this morning, OK?

“They’re kids on an adventure, they’re good boys, they’ve been friends since elementary school. They just did five weeks of working at Walmart. They just graduated and their first job, they said: ‘this isn’t cutting it. Let’s go find the real money. Alberta is where the money is at’.”

McCleod and Schmegelsky hail from Port Alberni, a city of fewer than 18,000 people located on Vancouver Island in British Columbia.

The pair have been described by family as lifelong friends who had been inseparable since primary school.

Schmegelsky’s grandmother, Carol Starkey, told The Vancouver Sun the 18-year-old had been living with her for the past two years.

“He was a great kid. I really enjoyed having him,” she said.

Mr. Schmegelsky has told reporters neither teen was violent or into drugs and had a shared obsession with video games.

Police Investigation Reports

Canadian authorities have found the car used by the two teenagers suspected of shooting dead Australian tourist Lucas Fowler and his American girlfriend Chynna Deese.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police confirmed on Wednesday the grey 2011 Toyota RAV4 driven by Kam McLeod, 19, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, had been set ablaze near the small town of Gillam, Manitoba, a wild and remote area of northern Canada.

“On Monday evening, RCMP recovered a vehicle in the Gillam area after receiving a report of a vehicle fire,” the RMCP said in a tweet.

“We can now confirm this vehicle is the same vehicle the suspects were traveling in.”
