Police had found several items about nine kilometres away from where a burned-out vehicle was found two weeks ago near Gillam, about 700 kilometres north of Winnipeg (MB).
Bryer Schmegelsky and Kam McLeod from Port Alberni, B.C., left B.C, around July 13 after telling their parents they were going to Yukon and Northwest Territories in search of work.
Two days later, American Chynna Deese, 24, and her 23-year-old Australian boyfriend Lucas Fowler were found shot to death near Liard Hot Springs in Northern B.C.
On July 19, the body of Vancouver resident Leonard Dyck, 64, a lecturer at the University of British Columbia’s botany department, was discovered on a road near Dease Lake, about 500 kilometres southwest from the hot springs.
The discovery of the rowboat washed up on the shore at a back eddy of the Nelson River prompted an RCMP dive team from Winnipeg to search underwater did not uncover any additional items linked to the suspects.
