Police in a remote part of Canada have stepped up their manhunt for two Nazi-loving suspected teenage serial killers, one of whom might be wearing a disguise.
And they suspect the pair got help from a resident who didn’t recognize them.
Fugitives Kam McLeod, 19 and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, have led police on a chase through some of the country’s roughest terrain after allegedly slaying botanist Leonard Dyck, 64, at a campground in northern British Columbia last week. His charred body was found in a burnt van.
The Canadian men are also suspected of killing US citizen Chynna Deese, 24, and Australian tourist Lucas Fowler, 23, a tourist couple murdered on a highway earlier this month.
The Royal Canadian Police said they’re conducting a “door-to-door” search for the suspects using tracker dogs and hi-tech equipment in the rugged countryside near Gillam, Manitoba, which is part of the Fox Lake Cree Nation reservation.
They said they tracked the teens over 3,000 miles before their car was spotted near Gillam on Monday.
“We believe they are still in the area,” said a RCMP spokeswoman said.
The Canadian military is expected to join in the search, she said.
The fugitives were charged with second-degree murder in absentia last week in Dyck’s death.
