Two Canadian Fugitives Wanted For Murder Of Aussie Backpacker And American Girlfriend Found Dead

The Canadian manhunt for two teenage fugitives wanted for murdering two backpackers and Vancouver professor has ended after their bodies were found.

They have been on the run for a little more than two weeks after being suspected of killing Aussie Lucas Fowler, his girlfriend Chynna Deese, and in an unrelated case, Vancouver professor Leonard Dyck.

The manhunt began after Deese, 24, and Fowler's, 23, bodies were found on a ditch on the side of a highway late last month. They both had gunshot wounds.

It's alleged the two teens then drove 3,000kms across Canada, where they found their next victim in Professor Dyck.

Police discovered Leonard Dyck's body several days after Deese and Fowler and it was only a few kilometres from where the two suspects had abandoned their burning car.

Jane MacLatchy, commanding officer at Manitoba Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) has revealed that the bodies who they believe to be Schmegelsky and McLeod were found just eight kilometres from that same burned-out vehicle.
