Police declined to say how the two had died, saying that they would wait for the autopsy to confirm their identities and cause of death.

Kam McLeod, 19, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, have been on the run since late July, when three bodies were found in northern British Columbia.

The bodies were discovered on a highway in northern British Columbia, 12 miles from Liard Hot Springs.

Police deployed tracker dogs, a drone and search planes to comb the hard, forested and swampy terrain, which was infested with mosquitos and home to bears and wolves.

An American, Chynna Deese, and her Australian boyfriend, Lucas Fowler, were found dead with gunshot wounds on the side of a highway July 15 in British Columbia.

On July 23, authorities named McLeod and Schmegelsky as suspects in the killings.

Bryer Schmegelsky and Kam MacLeod have sent Canadian law enforcement on a trying chase through rough terrain for weeks now.

Mounties in Manitoba have confirmed two bodies believed to belong to the two murder suspects from Port Alberni were found approximately eight kilometres from where a burned SUV was found last month near the small community of Gillam.

MacLatchy said officers searching the area on foot discovered the bodies.
