The deaths of three people and the disappearances of two young men within a week amid the wild expanses of Northern B.C. have set residents on edge.

RCMP have cautioned against linking the cases but have not entirely ruled out a connection. Officers have also acknowledged "growing community concerns" about the homicide investigations.

In a report yesterday on a local channel it said over the last 40 years more than 100, mainly women, have been murdered or gone missing along that stretch of highway.

They are thinking that this may be unrelated to the Highway of Tears. New police release is:

B.C. RCMP say they have received “a number of tips” regarding a person of interest in the case of two tourists killed in northern British Columbia.

RCMP say investigators are aware of Derek Whisenand, a Texas man who crossed the border into Canada sometime around June 24.

The suspect sketch looks suspiciously similar to Fidel Castro.

I hope the authorities can put together what happened to these people soon and no one else is harmed. It's scary to think there may be a serial killer on the loose.

It sure seems like a desolate and lonely area too.  I wonder where these two suspects could be.  Either way, they've wasted their lives if they've killed these poor  people.  Hope they find them quickly. :(

And how many of those cases have been solved ?

LATEST UPDATES: 

Increased police presence in Manitoba communities of Gillam, Fox Lake Cree Nation

Manitoba RCMP following up on “numerous tips” regarding the two suspects

Public warned not to approach suspects, remain vigilant

Ontario Provincial Police issue warning to public that suspects may be “heading in an easterly direction”

https://globalnews.ca/news/5675920/2-teen-suspects-three-people-killed-north-bc-manhunt/

I wonder where they think they can escape to?  Did they get another vehicle?  Are they heading east or did they head south by the time to SUV (if it was the one they stole) was found?

One of the boy's father says he thinks his son is on a suicide mission. I feel so bad for this poor man.

Our news tonight said police are closing in on the boys.

Oh that's great news that they're closing in. 

Oh my, that poor father. It's not how average Dad's bring up their children to be running off and killing random people, so I can only surmise it would be absolutely devastating for him to think his son has done this and on a suicide mission to boot. Very sad situation all round including the victim's families too. :(

Bingo, @pixiii and @susieice. It's every parents nightmare for their kid to grow to be a serious felon. And this can happen to parents that have several other children that are perfectly good, responsible people.

Case in point was the unibomber, Ted Kaczynski, who was actually turned in by his mother and brother. You never know!

Police are now following up on two sightings of the boys in the area of a small town in Manitoba. The wilderness in the area they are believed to be in is extremely rugged.

Thanks for keeping us posted, @susieice, I may not see it in the news if/when they are captured.

The area the suspects are considered to be in is "swamp"

The bugs in that area are brutal and extremely aggressive... which includes horse flies.

My understanding is that if they are in the swamps, survival is unlikely unless they go back into dry public spaces.

"Father of B.C. murder suspect pens book, details troubled life

https://globalnews.ca/news/5695584/alan-schmegelsky-book/

Alan Schmegelsky, the father of 18-year-old Bryer Schmegelsky, sent a book to reporters this week titled “Red Flagged,” which he says is a novelization of actual events and fictionalizes some incidents"

Nice, using his son's crimes to justify his own brushes with the law

B.C. murder suspects stopped, released by band constables before manhunt: councillor

Those poor constables, knowing they had them before the manhunt.

Now they think the suspects may have been spotted in Ontario.

https://nypost.com/2019/08/01/teen-suspects-in-canada-murders-possibly-spotted-2000-miles-away/

The RCMP are scaling down the search in the Gillam area but not abandoning it completely.
