Teenage killers may be travelling Hwy 17

RENFREW COUNTY – Police are saying a pair of suspected teenage killers may be making their way to Highway 17.

Two teenagers on the run from police across Canada may be in Ontario and heading towards Highway 17, police said yesterday (Suh. 1).

The Ontario Provincial Police is investigating reports of two suspicious men believed to be the British Columbia murder suspects 18-year-old Bryer Schmegelsky and 19-year-old Kam McLeod.

A suspicious vehicle was spotted driving in a construction zone on Highway 11 near Kapuskasing around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday morning (July 31). Kapuskasing is roughly 700 kilometres north of Pembroke, however Highway 11 connects to Highway 17 in North Bay.

The two men have already travelled across the country and are charged in one murder and suspects in another two. On Wednesday RCMP dialed back the search efforts in northern Manitoba after no leads following a nine-day man hunt.

Anyone who sees suspicious activity, or a suspicious vehicle is urged to call 911 or local police. The OPP have not confirmed the two men are the wanted individuals, but are currently investigating this incident and actively looking for the white vehicle. The make and model of the vehicle has not been released.
