The two B.C. murder suspects that led RCMP on a cross-province manhunt left behind a "last will and testament" video before shooting themselves dead in the northern Manitoba wilderness, the Toronto Star reported.
The RCMP declined to comment on the existence of a video but a source confirmed that 30 seconds of the video, left on a cellphone that was found with the bodies, was shared with the suspects' family members.
In the clip, Kam McLeod, 19, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, reportedly outlined their wishes for their remains, said goodbye to their loved ones and detailed a "last will and testament," said the family member, who did not see the video first-hand.
McLeod and Schmegelsky were suspected of killing three people in B.C.: 23-year-old Australian tourist Lucas Fowler, his 24-year-old American girlfriend Chynna Deese and 64-year-old university professor Leonard Dyck.
Soon after Dyck was found dead, the RCMP launched a search for McLeod and Schmegelsky, but the two former Walmart employees evaded law enforcement and led them on an eastward chase all the way to Gillam, Man.
On Aug. 7, RCMP discovered the bodies of McLeod and Schmegelsky at 10 a.m., but said the men had been dead for several days.
The video could potentially help officials and the public understand why McLeod and Schmegelsky fled after allegedly killing three people.
