The two teenagers who shot the Australian tourist Lucas Fowler, his American girlfriend Chynna Deese and assistant professor Leonard Dyck on a murderous highway disaster in Canada, hoped to hijack a boat and sail to Africa or Europe to evade the authorities.
The dramatic plan was recorded on a video by Kam McLeod, 18, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 19, while the police and army of Canada pursued them over 3,000 km in Northern Canada.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police has issued a report on its investigation, which considers the murders to be arbitrary and suggests that the teenagers & # 39; fame & # 39; searched because of their bloodshed.

& # 39; There are no indications that these were planned or predicted, & # 39; Assistant Commissioner Kevin Hackett told reporters during a briefing in Vancouver.
Kam McLeod, 18, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 19, went on a murder attempt in northern British Columbia in July, first taking Mr. Fowler, 23, from Sydney, and Mrs. Deese, 24, from North Carolina with SKS semi-automatic guns killed.

& # 39; It seems that the shooter (s) were behind at least some of the shots behind the victims & # 39 ;, the report states.
McLeod and Schmegelsky then four days later shot the 64-year-old University of British Columbia botany teacher Mr. Dyck, stole his Toyota RAV4, set fire to their own Dodge pick-up truck, and led to a nationwide manhunt.

The teenagers also stole Mr. Dyck's digital camera and recorded six videos & three still images as they drove more than 3,000 km east to Gillam, Manitoba.
The RCMP said it would not publicly release the video & # 39; s or photos & # 39; s because they believed it would inspire copycats and the teenagers seemed to be looking for fame for their crimes.
On a 58-second video, Schmegelsky admits & # 39; they are responsible for the three murders & # 39; and & # 39; they would march to Hudson Bay where they intended to hijack a boat and go to Europe or Africa & # 39 ;.

McLeod and Schmegelsky reportedly left their hometown of Port Alberni, British Columbia on July 12, after telling relatives that they were going to look for work in Whitehorse, Yukon.
The teenage killers decided to end their lives after being stranded in an area near a fast moving river and dense bushland west of Hudson Bay.

& # 39; The loss that we continue to experience is overwhelming, but Chynna & # 39; s memories are a blessing for her genuine happiness and intense love of life, & # 39; said the Deese.
