RCMP scaling down search for B.C. murder suspects in northern Manitoba

WINNIPEG — The RCMP say they are scaling back the search for two British Columbia murder suspects in northern Manitoba.

Assistant Commissioner Jane MacLatchy says officers have searched more than 11,000 square kilometres of wilderness using the best technology available and have found no sign of Bryer Schmegelsky and Kam McLeod.

MacLatchy is emphasizing that the search in the Gillam area is not over, but resources are being re-deployed.

Schmegelsky and McLeod are charged with second-degree murder in the death of University of British Columbia professor Leonard Dyck, whose body was found earlier this month in northern B.C.

Police also consider the men suspects in the shooting of Australian Lucas Fowler and his American girlfriend Chynna Deese, who were found dead on the Alaska Highway near Liard Hot Springs, B.C.
