    Me too. I worried they would never be found and then people in Gillam would never truly be at ease (at least for a long time). Now people can resume their lives without fear of these two.

    I'm glad this is over and no more people will be hurt.

    Here, Medical Examiners and Coroners are often the same. So, good to know.

    Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner

    All I'm interested in is whether cause of death will be public (and am confident that the people who politely answered that question know what they are talking about it).

    I assume the Coroner who eventually determines manner/cause of death be from the same jurisdiction.

    So grateful that this has come to an end. Incredible work by authorities and all who assisted with the search through miserable terrain--it was truly a needle in a haystack scenario. I am glad there is some closure, however imperfect. I hope it is just the tiniest sliver of comfort to the families.

    Interested to see the facts that come out in the coming weeks.

    Manitoba RCMP believe the bodies of two B.C. fugitives on the run for more than two weeks have been found on the shoreline of the Nelson River.

    At a Wednesday press conference, police said they believe Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky’s bodies were found near the shoreline of the Nelson River around 10 a.m., about eight kilometres from a torched SUV that was dumped by the suspects near Gillam on July 22.

    Assistant Comm. Jane MacLatchy said the items found Friday that were “directly linked” to the two fugitives helped lead police to the bodies.

    “We immediately sent in specialized RCMP teams to begin searching nearby high-probability areas,” MacLatchy said.

    She said Mounties found the two male bodies in “dense brush” about one kilometre away from where the items were found. An autopsy in Winnipeg is scheduled to confirm their identities.

    “I’m confident it is them,” said MacLatchy.

    [...]

    B.C. RCMP, who remain in charge of the homicide investigations, are hosting a press conference at 3 p.m.

    I doubt killed by a bear. If that were the case, the bear would have protected his dinner ;)

    What? How would you make that connection? The pilot was a male from the Yukon, passenger was a female from Vancouver.

    coroners reports are always open to the public. the media will be able to request this report and relay the information to the public.

    I don't understand- the RCMP claimed to have "searched 11,000 sq. km", but the bodies were found only 8 km from the burned out car?

    yes i’m from BC. if your referring to Kilmer, the coroner will always release a public report in a suicide, it’s the media who decide whether or not to report on it.

    Well.... they must have been as suspects based on some evidence, don't you think?

    I bet police all throughout Canada are exhaling as well because they will no longer be receiving 911 calls from panicked people due to a possible sighting of this pair. Probably tall young men with a similar appearance are relieved too.

    "I’m about 6 km from where Bryer Schmegelsky and Kam McLeod’s bodies were found. It’s too dangerous to get there by foot. A local can be heard in this video describing the area."

    Interesting video at the link. Gives some perspective on how difficult this search must have been for the RCMP.

    Autopsy is scheduled in Winnipeg to confirm identities, say police

    Police believe they have found the bodies of fugitives Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky in northern Manitoba, ending a cross-Canada search for the men suspected of killing three people in B.C.

    RCMP officers found two male bodies Wednesday at approximately 10 a.m. local time in the area of Fox Lake Cree Nation, a community about 70 kilometres northeast of Gillam, Man.

    The remains were discovered approximately a kilometre from where items linked to the fugitives were found along the Nelson River, and eight kilometres from where a torched SUV, allegedly driven by the men, was found in Fox Lake.

    "At this time, we believe that these are the bodies of the two suspects wanted in connection with the homicides in British Columbia," said Assistant Commissioner Jane MacLatchy, commanding officer of the Manitoba RCMP.

    An autopsy will take place in Winnipeg to confirm the identities of the male bodies and determine their causes of death, MacLatchy said.

    RCMP in British Columbia are holding a news conference at 3 p.m. PT (6 p.m. ET). CBC News will carry it live.
