Who is Bryer Schmegelsky
- Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, and Kam McLeod, 19, are suspects in the murder of three people – including Australian Lucas Fowler and American Chynna Deese.
- The two friends, from Port Alberni, British Columbia, are on the run from Canadian police after they were originally reported as missing
- Lisa Lucas, Schmegelsky’s grandmother’s neighbor, said her son used to play with him but he lost friends when he started making people ‘feel uncomfortable’
- Lucas said Schmegelsky would talk a lot about violent video games and showed off pictures of him wearing a Nazi armband
- ‘My son told me that he would mention things like ”what if this was real? Can you imagine if this was real?” when playing video games,’ she told DailyMail.com
- She added her son said ‘everybody just got a little bit uncomfortable around him. He seemed to have less and fewer friends as time went on’
The father of one of the Canadian teenagers suspected of murdering Australian tourist Lucas Fowler and his partner, US citizen Chynna Deese, has voiced fears the manhunt will come to a violent end as police identified a third potential victim.
A distraught Alan Schmegelsky told Canadian Press his son, 18-year-old Bryer Schmegelsky, was dealing with some “very serious pain” and he expected the search to end in “a blaze of glory” gun battle with police. “He wants his hurt to end,” Alan Schmegelsky said.
Dyck’s body was found Friday, though authorities were unable to identify him and released a composite sketch of the man.
Authorities have been searching for McLeod and Schmegelsky since last week. Initially, the two were believed to be missing. Now, the RCMP say they are suspects in the shooting deaths of Dyck, as well as Chynna Noelle Deese, a 24-year-old American, and Lucas Robertson Fowler, her 23-year-old Australian boyfriend.
Lucas Robertson Fowler and Chynna Noelle Deese were found dead July 15.
Police found Dyck’s body several days later about a mile from where a vehicle and camper belonging to McLeod and Schmegelsky were found burning on the side of Highway 37.
Authorities declined to say what new information led them to name the two as suspects. But it came just a day after the RCMP said it was a “possible” that their disappearance was related to the couple’s death.
The teens, both from Port Alberni, were traveling through British Columbia to the Yukon Territory to look for work, the RCMP had said.
The RCMP did not say how Dyck was identified, but his family has been notified.
“We are truly heartbroken by the sudden and tragic loss of Len,” a statement from his family said. “His death has created unthinkable grief and we are struggling to understand what has happened.
While we understand there will be interest in knowing more about him and the impact he had during his life, we are asking for the public and the media to please respect our privacy during this difficult time.”

We've published the photos that appear to show Bryer Schmegelsky posing Nazi memorabilia. The knife in the picture reads "blut und ehre" — or, "blood and honour." It was the knife issued to Hitler Youth. https://t.co/StlraNoJKJ pic.twitter.com/aCSQ3hClz9
