The cheeky father of an alleged serial killer in the teenage years has sent letters to the media trying to publish his recently published book and telling DailyMail.com: & # 39; I really am a good writer. & # 39;
While his son is fleeing northeastern Canada, provoking hundreds of men's storms after the brutal murder of a young couple and a 64-year-old man, Alan Schmegelsky contacted media around the world hoping to stimulate the readership of his self-published book.
The father, who has given several media interviews about his fugitive son last week, sent copies of the book to 60 Minutes Australia and DailyMail.com.
The crawling memoir, entitled Red Flagged, is a bizarre floor covering of 131 pages that covers the last ten years of the life of Schmegelsky Sr.
His story shows how he struggled for years with his mental health, claiming that his psychologist, ordered by the court, had diagnosed him as "delusions" and threatened to bind him to a psychiatric institution.

The book is peppered with cruel criticism of Bryer & # 39; s mother Deborah Sweeney, his ex-wife whom he & # 39; hex & # 39; with details about the custody of their son and alleged quarrel with the Canadian Red Cross.
The book describes Schmegelsky's alleged struggle to get $ 80 million in compensation for a claim that the Canadian Red Cross is responsible for diagnosing his father for AIDS.
Speaking with DailyMail.com, the 53-year-old said the memoir should be published last week, on the same day his son Bryer and his friend Kam McLeod are suspected of killing three people.
& # 39; I have put the release on hold, it would be released on Monday, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; I wrote my book so Bryer and I could buy a house, & # 39; he said. & # 39; That was our plan. & # 39;

The father added that he is not selling the book for money now and just wants it to be published.
According to the cover of the manuscript, Schmegelsky wrote it drunk in 12 days.
& # 39; I didn't write it, I drank my soul and released it on the keyboard, & # 39; wrote the 53-year-old on the cover of the book.
& # 39; My soul wrote this in 12 days. Thirty years ago I could have sold my soul when my father told me that the Canadian Red Cross gave him AIDS.
"I could have told him to go off, called him a homosexual, and told him he deserved to die. My life today would be completely different today if I had no soul, no compassion. & # 39;

A copy of a letter that Schmegelsky gave to DailyMail.com shows that he was trying his 131-page work published by the New York-based Austin McCauley Publishers in October last year, unsuccessfully.
The opportunistic father of the alleged murderer sent copies of his book to the international media on Saturday, while the Royal Canadian Air Force deployed a Hercules aircraft to find the two wanted teenagers allegedly hiding in the wilderness around the town of Gillam, North Manitoba.
The manuscript says it was copyrighted by Alan Schmegelsky in 2019 and published through the self-publishing agent Friesen Press, based in Victoria, British Columbia, which helps small authors edit and print professionally bound versions of their own self-published books .
& # 39; Just read my book, I explain everything, & # 39; he said. & # 39; I already wrote it in October. It has worked all the time in editorial and publication processes. & # 39;
Schmegelsky does not mention his son by name in the book, but describes how his ex-wife filed charges of harassment against him in 2008, which led to restrictions on his access to nine-year-old Bryer.

The 53-year-old construction worker wrote that he reported himself for the charges of harassment instead of a & # 39; multi-million dollar, county-wide search & # 39; but complained that RCMP wrote a report to the court in his case throwing him as a & # 39; murderous, suicidal schizophrenic maniac & # 39 ;.
& # 39; This procedure contained three reports: the RCMP report; the murderous, suicidal schizophrenic maniac gets rid of his medication and starts murdering. The Forensic Psychiatric Assessment Report; the delusional, untreatable and needs medication for the rest of his life. And the probation report; hard worker, never missed an appointment, always polite, never drugs, no clear alcohol problem, & he wrote.
Schmegelsky Sr. revealed that after his criminal conviction, his biweekly visits to his son were accompanied by a social worker, claiming that his psychologist had diagnosed him as "delusion" and threatened to get him into a psychiatric institution in 2011.
The book also exposes the dysfunctional household in which the allegedly murderous teenager from 2000 has been brought up.
The father compared his wife with the fictional character Dr. Jeckyll and said that she had become & Mrs. Hyde & # 39; after they were married, and her a & # 39; sociopath & # 39; called.
"" Why aren't you rich? I married you because you are supposed to be rich! & # 39; Was her favorite saying, & # 39; he said.
DailyMail.com contacted ex-wife Deborah from Schmegelsky, but received no answer.
To help generate public leads, the RCMP published new security images of McLeod and Schmegelsky on Sunday, July 21, which ran through a stock store in Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan.
