Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky, two Canadian men wanted in connection with three murders in British Columbia, died by suicide in Manitoba.

Sgt. Paul Manaigre said RCMP have formalities to complete before they can officially identify the bodies.

McLeod and Schmegelsky were charged with second-degree murder in the death of University of British Columbia botany lecturer Leonard Dyck whose body was found on July 19 just south of Dease Lake.

The RCMP said it was reviewing "all investigative findings to date" and hoped to complete the review and publicly announce more details "within the next few weeks".

RCMP assistant commissioner Kevin Hackett said August 7 that the suspects' deaths do not mean the homicide case is over, he said.

In a statement from Deese's family, they said "we want to thank the Canadian authorities and their diligence in the pursuit of justice to bring these individuals to account".

She shared her sympathies with those affected and reminded residents that there are numerous supports available to residents of the Alberni Valley.

The BC Prosecution Service said criminal charges don't move forward once an accused is proven dead.

"We are aware of the ad and can confirm that we still have this boat in our possession", Sgt. Paul Manaigre said. "That will conclude the prosecution", spokesman Dan McLaughlin said in an email.

Police discovered the bodies of Deese and Fowl on July 15 along the side of the Alaska Highway near Liard Hot Springs, B.C. The couple had been shot to death. A burnt-out vehicle belonging to one of their alleged victims, Leonard Dyck, was found near Gillam on 23 July.

A manhunt for McLeod and Schmegelsky led to Gillam, where the Toyota Rav 4 the men were seen driving was found burned. A similar search was done around Gillam and police remain in the area.

Police used drones, dogs and even had help from the Canadian Armed Forces to scour the remote area.

On Aug. 2, police had a break in the case: they found several items - they didn't explain what they were - along the riverbank. Police search that area.

Police are now using forensics to analyse all items found during their search for the teen fugitives with the aim of piecing together exactly what happened to Fowler, Deese and Dyck so the can offer their respective families some closure.

RCMP said two firearms were found alongside McLeod and Schmegelsky's bodies, and that forensic analysis was underway to determine whether the weapons were connected to the murders of Deese, Fowler and Dyck.

Investigators, for instance, still are trying to determine a motive - and that will be hard, Hackett said.
