Two boys that were originally thought of as missing and are now wanted for three murders. As the manhunt continues and the entire nation watches, the two BC teens have allegedly been spotted in Saskatchewan. More information on the two missing Port Alberni teens has been revealed, and it looks like they may have Nazi links.
After a serious of investigative developments, the BC RCMP are no longer considering 19-year-old Kam McLeod and 18-year-old Bryer Schmegelsky as missing.
The two are now wanted as suspects in the murder of three individuals including the deaths of Lucas Fowler, a 23-year-old Australian man, and Chynna Deese, a 24-year-old American woman. The two young men are on the run and were recently seen in Manitoba.
According to Vice News, the two teens have expressed far-right ideology online, with one even posing in Nazi apparel. The Globe and Mail reported that the two were linked “to a YouTube page called Illusive Gameing [sic].” The Globe and Mail News has stated that these accounts feature a mix of far-right ideology, hentai, and Soviet imagery.
The Port Alberni, BC teens are six-foot, four inches tall and weigh 169 pounds. McLeod has dark brown hair, facial hair, and brown eyes. Schmegelsky has sandy brown hair. RCMP have noted that they two may have changed their appearance.
Manitoba RCMP have also stated that there is reason to believe the two were recently in the Gillam area, which is more than 1,000 km northeast of Winnipeg.
The mayor of Gillam said that following the announcement, people have been locking their doors earlier than normal and paying more attention to the faces around them.
Extra officers have been brought in for a search focused about 70 km northwest of the town new Fox Lake Cree Nation. According to KelownaNow News, a vehicle was found burned-out near the receiver on Tuesday.
RCMP have not confirmed with the public if it was directly connected with the wanted teens.
Deputy mayor John McDonald has said that the two are in a country known for thick bush, swamps, and insects. “If they are wandering around in the bush, they couldn’t have picked a worse time because the sandflies came out three days ago and they’re just voracious,” he said Wednesday. “I’m quite sure they’ll be more than happy to have someone find them.”
Officials have not released details on why the two became suspects. RCMP are calling the duo armed and dangerous. Anyone who spots them should not approach and instead, should call 911.
