Two young travellers found slain along northern B.C. highway

Police are investigating the deaths of Chynna Noelle Deese and Lucas Robertson Fowler, whose bodies were found along the Alaska Highway on Monday.

Investigators have not said how the pair died, but have classified it as a double homicide.

The statement from investigators said an older blue minivan with Alberta licence plates was found at the scene.

Lucas Fowler in a post shared by his family on Facebook.

Family are travelling with police to Canada to help with the investigation and bring Fowler's body back to Australia, the Herald reported.

The Royal Canadian Mountain Police is treating the young couple's deaths as suspicious.

Fowler, who was the son of a police inspector in New South Wales, was travelling the world with Deese, his girlfriend, according to a statement from the Fowler family.

"We have lost our dear Lucas Fowler, son, brother, grandson and friend in the most bad of circumstances", Jacob Fowler wrote in a post to Facebook. "All our love and best wishes go to Chynna's family and friends".

"We are now travelling to Canada to be with our boy and to bring him home", says the post, which urges people to share it with all those who "crossed paths anywhere in the world with these handsome young people".


Chynna Deese, 24, of North Carolina, and her boyfriend, Lucas Fowler, of Australia were murdered in British Columbia, Canada, Monday.

"At this stage we can only move forward a minute at a time, and those minutes are moving so slowly".

They are being accompanied by several Australian police officers, who are coming to Canada to offer support to the family, not to aid in the investigation. They were bright and attractive souls.

Police are looking to speak with anyone who drove the stretch of highway between Sunday, July 14 at 4 p.m. and Monday, July 15 at 8 a.m. Police want to speak with anybody who has dashcam video of their travels through the area as they narrow down the timeline of the killings.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Northern Rockies RCMP at 250-774-2700 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

"Curtis (being the helpful mechanic ) usually stops and asks if everyone is ok and if they need help", she wrote.

An Australian man and his girlfriend have been found dead in suspicious circumstances in Canada.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade is providing consular assistance.

"We have been honored to call her our sister", it said in a statement.
