OPP assign a team of investigators to look into BC murder suspects' sightings

Kam McLeod, Bryer Schmegelsky

Provincial police say they're following up on multiple tips regarding two men wanted in connection with three murders in northern B-C.

O-P-P say there have been ``numerous'' reported sightings of men believed to be 18-year-old Bryer Schmegelsky and 19-year-old Kam McLeod across the province, and of suspicious vehicles.

Police say so far none of the sightings have been confirmed, but they've assigned a team of investigators to look into the reports.

A manhunt spanning several provinces began last week after the two young men were named as suspects in the killings of Vancouver researcher Leonard Dyck, Australian Lucas Fowler and his American girlfriend Chynna Deese.
