    An Australian man and his American girlfriend have died in suspicious circumstances in Canada, sparking fears they may have been murdered.

    Lucas Fowler is reported to be the son of senior NSW police officer, Inspector Stephen Fowler. He was found dead alongside his girlfriend, North Carolina woman Chynna Deese, in British Columbia earlier this week sparking fears of foul play.

    Chynna’s sister Kennedy Deese wrote they pair were “homicide victims along a remote stretch of highway in Canada while on a road trip.”

    An older style blue mini-van the pair was believed to have been travelling was found at the scene.

    Canadian police are looking for anyone who saw the vehicle or offered assistance. They’re also appealing for anyone that travelled the stretch of highway around the time of the discovery to come forward, according to a RCMP media release.

    Snipped...
    ...“We have lost our dear Lucas Fowler, son, brother, grandson and friend in the most terrible of circumstances. To lose someone so young and vibrant, who was travelling the world and just enjoying life to the full, is devastating.

    To know his beautiful girlfriend, Chynna Deese of Charlotte, North Carolina, also lost her life in this violent event is too cruel. All our love and best wishes go to Chynna’s family and friends.

    We are all now travelling to Canada to be with our boy and to bring him home.
    Our deepest thanks for all your love and care. At this stage, we can only move forward a minute at a time, and those minutes are moving so slowly.

    Please share this with all those who may have crossed paths anywhere in the world with these beautiful young people.”

    In a statement, the RCMP said Leonard Dyck was found dead on Friday at a highway pullout about 2 kilometres south of the vehicle fire south of Stikine River Bridge on Highway 37.

    McLeod and Schmegelsky have been charged with second-degree murder in Dyck's death.

    This is a breaking news story and will be updated as more information becomes available.

    Over the next 72 hours, investigators will conduct door-to-door canvases in the Town of Gillam & Fox Lake Cree Nation, in hopes of generating new tips & information. #rcmpmb

    Kam McLeod & Bryer Schmegelsky MAY have changed their appearance & inadvertently been given assistance to leave the area by someone that was not aware of who they were. If anyone out there is hesitant to come forward – it is crucial for you call police immediately. #rcmpmb

    1:02 PM - 26 Jul 2019 pst

    It is critical that all Canadians remain on the lookout for Kam McLeod & Bryer Schmegelsky. If seen, do not approach, call 911 or local police immediately. #rcmpmb

    After a thorough & exhaustive search, #rcmpmb has not been able to substantiate the tip in York Landing. RCMP resources will continue to be in the York Landing & Gillam areas. We thank the community for their patience & understanding & ask them to continue to be vigilant.

    ADMIN NOTE:
    (long, but necessary)


    Off topic posts have been removed, along with responses to them ... and responses to responses, etc.

    Speculative opinion should be based on some semblance of known fact as contained in MSM or advised by LE.

    Wild speculation and/or conspiracy theories are not allowed. At this time there is nothing to substantiate that drugs are involved in this case. Without anything to back that up, it is considered a conspiracy theory.

    One of the absolute basic tenets of Websleuths is remaining victim friendly. Making accusations, directly or indirectly, against anyone other than an officially named POI/suspect is not allowed. You may discuss/question what people have said in MSM about others and by others (and in this case a book authored by the suspect’s father AS), but you may not accuse innocent people of involvement, or infer/insinuate their involvement.

    The “haircut” story does not appear to coincide with known dates available via MSM or LE. It is therefore off the table.

    Also off topic subjects include:

    Rumors, social media comments, antifa, incels, extensive discussion/philosophizing about Communism/Hitlerism/Nazism, sexual orientation or gender identity, politicizing (i.e. RCMP vs Indigenous Peoples of Canada) ... right on down to police attire and comments on a grandmother’s television.

    As always, general rudeness/snark, personalizing, and bickering are not allowed.

    Please abide by Websleuths rules, including the notes set out above.

    Thank you.

    Considering how much time has passed, the lack of confirmed sightings, no reports of further crimes, and the likelihood that they found themselves without a vehicle; I think they are probably hiding out in the woods.

    And if they are hiding out in the woods, they are quite likely dead by now, and may have been for some time.

    I think the next big thing we hear is that their bodies have been discovered.

    Whenever the hell that is.

    I hope that is what is going on. I don't like rooting for someone to be deceased, but I don't see these 2 coming back from this hell they have created for themselves.

    And if alive, they would be very desperate and dangerous. Hopefully they died in their troubled sleep. And our Northern Neighbour would be a safer place.

    Beautiful sunset on the Nelson River in Fox Lake Cree Nation last night. We're still in Northern Manitoba, finishing up with the community meeting on the #canadamanhunt & a future story. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/canada/article-gillam-holds-community-meeting-to-discuss-search-for-teen-fugitives/ …

    Friday there was a community BBQ & information meeting. Half of the RCMP resources are still in town, but the search has been seriously reduced without any additional leads. Some residents are still uneasy, but overall it is a lot more open than it was a week ago.

    The sun was setting Friday night on a pretty quiet town and tired looking RCMP officers. Also an inexplicable jet stream from a jet flying straight up? It was SW of Gillam.

    Leaving Canada without a resolution... really, really hope they find them - alive - for the victims’ families sake. There’s plenty of great people still trying. [​IMG] [​IMG] @ Gillam, Manitoba
