Nearly one year after the manhunt for two murder suspects ended with the discovery of their bodies in northern Manitoba, the commander of Manitoba RCMP’s northern district is looking back at the large-scale search he oversaw, and reflecting on questions that remain unanswered.
RCMP Supt. Kevin Lewis told CBC News the July 2019 slayings of Chynna Deese, 24, her boyfriend Lucas Fowler, 23, and Leonard Dyck, 64, in B.C. were senseless.
"At the end of the day, we'll never know why [it happened]," he said.
The homicides prompted a manhunt for suspects Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky that stretched into northern Manitoba, where the men were found dead Aug. 7. Police believed they killed themselves within the first week of the police search.
