The remote part of Canada which I live has been making a lot of international news lately for some very horrible crimes. When things like this happen in this area of the country, it really hits too close to home. While murders might be prevalent in large, metropolitan areas, the population of Northern BC is so small, it’s really true what they say when they say everyone knows everyone. The fact that someone could do something like this, it’s a hard pill to swallow.
To those of you who’ve heard of the terrifying murders of Australian Lucas Fowler and American Chynna Deese, a millennial couple travelling the world, who were murdered on a remote stretch of highway en route to Alaska, the story continues to unfold.
A third body, that of an unidentified man believed to be in his 50s or 60s was found some 500 miles down the highway just steps away from a burned out truck and the two teenagers who owned the truck were/are missing. The public initially believed the two teenagers to also be the victims of foul play. Today, however, the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) have announced that the two teenagers are the primary suspects in all three murders.
The teenagers are believed to be on the run and were last seen driving a 2011 Toyota Rav4 in Northern Saskatchewan. Kam McLeod and Bryar Schmegelsky are to be considered dangerous and people are being asked to call 911 immediately if you see either of the two suspects, and do not approach.
I’m hoping these two are found quickly and I’m hoping there’s more to the story. I’m still having a hard time believing two 18 year old’s are responsible for three murders. That being said, if they are, I hope they’re caught before they have the opportunity to hurt anyone else.
Lucas and Chynna’s family deserve some peace after this truly horrible crime. So does the unidentified third man found dead next to the burned out truck. If you’re in Canada… or even if you’re not… keep your eyes on the lookout for these two.
For Lucas, Chynna and the unidentified third victim, I sincerely hope that police are able to find some closure for you soon.
