128 – The Murders of Chynna Deese, Lucas Fowler & Leonard Dyck

Episode 128 – On the 15th of July, 2019, just outside Liard Hot Springs, B.C., the bodies of an innocent couple, Chynna Deese, 24, from Charlotte, NC, and her Australian boyfriend, Lucas Fowler, 23, were found shot to death beside their 1986 Chevy van. Police had no idea who had done this, or why.

Four days later, a burning truck, registered to a young Vancouver Island man was found burning near Dease Lake, B.C. As police were attending to that scene, they were notified of another man found murdered only two km from the burning truck. This 64-year-old botanist and UBC lecturer, named Leonard Dyck. His Toyota RAV4 was missing, along with the two young men, who quickly became suspects in the murders, sparking a manhunt that took police through four Provinces and one Territory, ending in Manitoba, thousands of kilometres from where it began.
