Manhunt for suspected teen killers intensifies in Canada


CANADA (CNN) – The massive manhunt for two suspected teen killers on the run is intensifying.

“Some people just don’t feel safe leaving their house.”

“We’re all a little bit freaked out; you know?”

A tight-knit community, a place where people leave their doors unlocked is now on edge.

The possible presence of two suspected killers on the run has rocked the normally sleepy town of Gillam, Canada.

“The only difference I think is people are locking their doors, you know, at night and during the day.”

“We’re all a little bit jittery. I got grandkids in town and stuff like that. I mean, I don’t sleep at night.”

The last known sightings of Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky in the area has caused a swarm of authorities from all across Canada to take over the town.

As the hunt for the two teen murder suspects intensifies…

“Investigators will conduct door-to-door canvases.”

Authorities are vowing to leave no stone unturned, searching trains and braving brutal and tough terrain.

“Investigators are also exploring the possibility that the suspects may have inadvertently received assistance in leaving the area.”

Police want anyone who may have accidentally helped the two to come forward.

And are warning that they may have changed their appearances.

“We want them caught and taken care of.”
