Police searching for two suspects in murder of tourist couple and another man
RCMP in B.C. have dropped a bombshell in the case of a murdered tourist couple and another man.
They say the suspects in the killings are a pair of young men who were previously regarded as missing persons. The Mounties now say 19-year-old Kam McLeod and 18-year-old Bryer Schmegelsky are on the run and were last spotted in northern Saskatchewan. Last week, a 23-year-old Australian man and his 24-year-old American girlfriend were found shot to death on the Alaska Highway, and four days later a man was found dead over 400 kilometres away with a burning camper van nearby.
