VANCOUVER — The father of a suspected killer of three people in northern British Columbia is trying to access a video his son took which details his last wishes before his death.
A lawyer for Alan Schmegelsky says he became aware of the video earlier this month when his son, Bryer Schmegelsky, and Kam McLeod were found dead from self-inflicted gunshot wounds in the northern Manitoba wilderness.
Sarah Leamon says she has been in contact with the RCMP on behalf of her client so he can watch the video for closure.
An email of the exchange obtained by The Canadian Press says the video is about how Bryer wanted his body to be dealt with after his death.
In the email, the RCMP says the information about Bryer’s wishes was passed on to his mother and that police plan on publicly addressing the video in a media release in the next few weeks.
Leamon says she doesn’t know how the email became public, but she verified its contents.
The RCMP did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
