Global couple killed in double homicide in northeastern B.C.: RCMP

An Australian man was found dead on the Alaska Highway in Canada on Monday morning. His death is said to be suspicious

Lucas Robertson Fowler of Australia and Chynna Noelle Deese of North Carolina were found dead along the side of the Alaska Highway 20 kilometres south of the popular tourist destination on Monday, July 15.

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

Homicide detectives from Australia have been sent to Canada to help Mounties investigate the double homicide of an Australian man and his American girlfriend who were reportedly shot to death near Liard Hot Springs this week.

"We have lost our dear Lucas Fowler, son, brother, grandson and friend in the most awful circumstances".

They said knowing his girlfriend Ms Deese, from North Carolina, had also lost her life in a "violent event" was cruel.

Fowler, originally from Sydney's north shore, had been working on a ranch in Canada, and Deese had come to visit him for the "branding of the cows" before the pair set out on a trip.

"Our hearts and thoughts go out to all the families involved and friends internationally and here nationally as well because Lucas was living here", she said.

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

"To lose someone so young and vibrant, who was travelling the world and just enjoying life to the full, is devastating".

Few details of the homicides have been released by RCMP in British Columbia. "I can't believe that this young couple are dead now".

"If you were in the area, if you have dash cam video, we're asking you to get in touch with investigators", Shoihet said, adding police are particularly interested in speaking with anyone who was travelling along the road that is a throughway to Alberta, Yukon and Alaska after 4 p.m. on Sunday or after 8 a.m. on Monday.

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.

Canadian police are looking for anyone who saw the vehicle or offered assistance.

A blue minivan was at the scene, and authorities are looking to speak with anyone travelling the area who may have dashcam footage.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade confirmed they have informed the man's family.

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

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