Police say items linked to murder suspects from British Columbia found

RCMP in northern Manitoba say they have found several items linked to two murder suspects from British Columbia.

Mounties did not say what the items are but that they were found on the shore of the Nelson River after police searched the area near Gillam over the weekend. It came after a damaged aluminum boat was discovered there Friday. The area has been the focus for more than a week in the hunt for Bryer Schmegelsky and Kam McLeod who are suspects in the killings of three people last month in northern B.C.
