It’s finally been revealed how the two teenagers suspected of killing three innocent strangers, including Australian man Lucas Fowler, died.
According to Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Bryer Schmegelsky and Kam McLeod died from “suicide by gunfire”.
In a statement released on Monday local time, police said the pair had died a number of days before they were found.

It’s not clear when exactly the pair died, however “there are strong indications that they had been alive for a few days since they were last seen in July and during the extensive search efforts in the Gillam area,” police said.
It’s understood two firearms were found alongside the bodies.
“Forensic analysis is underway in order to definitively confirm that these weapons are connected with the northern BC homicide investigations.”
The bodies of Australian man Lucas Fowler and his US girlfriend Chynna Deese were found murdered on the side of a highway in British Columbia last month.
The teens are also alleged to have killed a third man, Leonard Dyck, just four days later.
