Canadian police announced two teenagers, Kam McLeod, 19, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, as the suspects in the double homicides of an American woman, Chynna Deese, and her Australian boyfriend, Lucas Fowler. Deese and Fowler were found fatally shot near their broken-down van alongside a highway near Liard Hot Springs, a week ago. The suspects are also linked to the death of a man found in northern British Columbia. The teens were previously thought to be missing. Police also stated that the suspected teens are considered dangerous and warned the public not to approach them and call 911 immediately if spotted.

According to the description given by the Canadian police, McLeod stands about 6 feet and 4 inches tall and weighs about 169 pounds and has dark brown hair and brown eyes, whereas Schmegelsky has sandy-brown hair standing around 6 foot and 4 and weighing about 169 pounds. 

The young couple was on their two-week-long road trip through northern British Columbia. The newly released surveillance video showed the couple hugging at a gas station two days before they were found dead.

Police also released a sketch of a person who was seen talking to Fowler. Police also released a sketch of the victim, asking for help identifying him. Police are investigating the possibilities that both these cases could be linked. The highway is dubbed the "Highway of Tears", as at least 18 women have disappeared or been found murdered in the last 40 years. 

Fowler's father is a police officer back in Australia and Deese was from Charlotte, North Carolina.
