WINNIPEG – The search for Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky continues. The RCMP has released this video which was obtained in Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan, on July 21, 2019.
The RCMP are releasing this video as it may generate additional tips or sightings.
RCMP are investigating the possibility that the two suspects may have obtained help from someone in the Gilliam area who didn’t know about the homicide or RCMP search underway for the two males.
In a media statement from the Manitoba RCMP: “Officers have conducted and continue to search high probability areas of interest in the Gillam area. Investigators continue to follow up on tips, review the physical and digital evidence collected, and share information with police forces across Canada.
“Over the next 72 hours, investigators will conduct door-to-door canvases in the Town of Gillam and Fox Lake Cree Nation, in hopes of generating new tips and information. Residents in these areas can be assured that we are activating all necessary resources to protect public and officer safety.
“Our investigators are also exploring the possibility that the suspects may have inadvertently received assistance in leaving the area. To restate, there have been no confirmed sightings outside of the Gillam area, however, we remain open to the possibility.
“Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky may have changed their appearance. It is possible that someone may not have been aware of who they were providing assistance to, and may now be hesitant to come forward. I want to reiterate the importance of contacting police immediately.
It is critical that all Canadians remain vigilant for Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky. If they are spotted, do not approach, call 9-1-1 or your local police immediately.
Be assured that it is in our best interest to share CONFIRMED facts as soon as possible, both in advancing our investigation and with respect to public safety.
There were rumours on Facebook last night of a suspected sighting of the two suspects in the Nipigon area. None of the rumours or speculation on social media has been proven.
