Lucas Fowler and Chynna Deese were found dead on the side of the Alaska highway.

McLeod and Schmegelsky were charged with the murder of Leonard Dyck, a University of British Columbia botany lecturer, and were also suspects in the deaths of American Chynna Dease and her Australian boyfriend Lucas Fowler.

The teenagers were later seen 3,300km (2,050 miles) to the east, in Manitoba, where police concentrated their search.

Investigators said they will review statements, physical and digital evidence, as well as evidentiary time lines, which is expected to take a few weeks.

The force's Behavioural Analysis Unit is assisting with the investigation.

Police will continue to update the families involved and the public, but for now, the RCMP is done searching the area where the bodies were discovered, about eight kilometres from where a burned RAV4 connected to the teens was found on July 22.

According to CBC, two firearms were also found in proximity, and police are attempting to discover whether the guns were in relation to the British Columbia homicides.
