YouTube: For thousands of Australians every year Canada is a wonderful place to visit. It’s not only spectacular but also one of the friendliest and safest countries on earth. However, four weeks ago something awful happened there. A young Australian tourist, Lucas Fowler, and his American girlfriend, Chynna Deese, were murdered. Days later a Canadian university professor was also killed. The attacks were random, unprovoked acts of violence, but the Royal Canadian Mounted Police quickly linked the crimes. Disturbingly it seems the perpetrators were two teenage boys who then went on the run, becoming Canada’s most wanted fugitives.
They were finally found, dead. For the last two weeks Sarah Abo has been the only reporter to spend time with the distressed father of one of the boys. Abo and her team were with Alan Schmegelsky as heavily armed police and soldiers scoured Canada looking for his 18-year-old son, Bryer. She also spoke with him in the moments after he found out Bryer was dead. In an extraordinary series of interviews Mr Schmegelsky tries to explain the circumstances that may have led his child down a path of evil.
