Cat Filter Mistakenly Applied During Police News Conference On Double Murder

Chynna Noelle Deesem and Lucas Robertson Fowler were found dead along the Alaska Highway in northern B.C. on Monday.

Shoihet was reporting to media that the double homicide of Lucas Fowler of Australia and Chynna Deese of the United States - which occurred sometime between July 14 and 15 in northern B.C. - is in its early stages, and again pleaded to anyone with information to help their investigation.

Police confirmed that Deese and Fowler, whose bodies were found along the Alaska Highway in a remote part of British Columbia, were both murdered.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police service in British Columbia has issued an apology after a press conference on the death of Australian Lucas Fowler was streamed using the cat ear filter.

"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".

"To know his attractive girlfriend Chynna Deese ... also lost her life in this violent event is too cruel", the family wrote.

Police were alerted to a blue minivan with Alberta registration plates at the scene, and authorities wanted to speak with anyone travelling in the area who may have had dashcam footage.

Fowler's father, Stephen, chief inspector for Sydney's north-west Hills district, and other family members have flown to Canada "to be with our boy and to bring him home".

The investigation into the couple's death has been deemed a double homicide.

The back-and-forth captured the potential impacts of Trump's willingness to inject racist rhetoric into his reelection fight. He said he "would certainly try" to stop the chant should it return at a subsequent rally.


"Our thoughts are with them at this hard time".

"They were bright and lovely souls". They offered their condolences to Deese's family.

Police, including investigators from the Lower Mainland, are still on scene and are trying to determine a timeline of events, as well as "all the details related to the van", including whether it was being driven by the couple, she said.

One of the last people to speak to the couple were Canadians Sandra and Curtis Broughton, who were driving past, saw the broken down blue van and stopped to help.

Lucas Fowler studied at Ku-ring-gai High School while Ms Deese had gone to Appalachian State University and recently graduated with a degree in psychology and business.

"I can't believe that this young couple are dead now".

This tragic story can shock two continents and three countries-an American woman and her Australian boyfriend on a world tour were shot dead by a serial killer on the Alaska highway in rural Canada.

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

In a statement released Wednesday afternoon, the RCMP said, "We recognize this news is troubling for the entire community and absolutely appreciate there are concerns for safety, in an area that is popular with nature enthusiasts and tourists".
