REPORT: RCMP Now Say Murder Suspects May Have Left Gillam Area

There is growing uncertainty, and the RCMP have now requested aircraft from the Canadian Forces.

Despite having earlier said they believed murder suspects Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky were in the Gillam area, the RCMP are now saying the murder suspects may have left the area.

As a result, there is growing concern and uncertainty across Canada, as the whereabouts of the murder suspects are unknown.

The RCMP has now requested the support of military aircraft, according to Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale:

“In the criminal investigation of the two fugitives in northern MB, the RCMP have requested aircraft support from the Cdn Armed Forces. Prompt reply – YES.”

Unfortunately, because the search has been confined to the Gillam area for about the past two days – and the burned-out vehicle that belonged to the suspects was found about 48 hours prior to that – there is an immense potential radius in which the suspects could have travelled.

The RCMP also released surveillance video to help in the possible identification of the suspects, though that video is from five days ago:

In a press conference, the RCMP said that someone may have ‘inadvertently’ helped the suspects.

Here’s what RCMP Cpl. Julie Courchaine said:

“It is possible that someone may not have been aware of who they were providing assistance to, and may now be hesitant to come forward. I want to reiterate the importance of contacting police immediately.”

RCMP say the suspects may have changed their appearance:

“Kam McLeod & Bryer Schmegelsky MAY have changed their appearance & inadvertently been given assistance to leave the area by someone that was not aware of who they were. If anyone out there is hesitant to come forward – it is crucial for you call police immediately.”

RCMP say they will conducting door to door canvases in Gillam and Fox Lake Cree Nation over the next 72 hours. Of course, in that time, the radius of where the murder suspects could be will expand even further.
