Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky, the B.C. men suspected of killing three people and sparking a Northern Manitoba manhunt near Gillam that ended when they were found dead by self-inflicted gunshot wounds, left behind a “last will and testament” video on a cell phone, the Toronto Star reported Aug. 19.
Thirty seconds of the video was shared with the suspects’ family members. It reportedly outlined their wishes for hteir remains, bid goodbye to family members and detailed a last will and testament, according to an unnamed family member, who did not personally see the video.
The bodies of McLeod and Schmegelsky were found Aug. 7 near the Nelson River after a large-scale RCMP search that lasted nearly two weeks. The search began when a vehicle belonging to 64-year-old Leonard Dyck, who was killed in northern B.C., was found abandoned and burning near Fox Lake Cree Nation July 22. RCMP said the men had been dead for a number of days at the time their bodies were discovered.
McLeod and Shmegelsky were also suspects in the killings of 23-year-old Australian Lucas Fowler and his 24-year-old American girlfriend Chynna Deese, also in northern B.C.
