Australian and American found dead along Alaska Highway

The family of Lucas and Chynna have posted emotional tributes on social media confirming their deaths

The engine of their van had flooded, the man told Broughton, but he knew how to get it running. They didn't need help, so the Broughtons carried on.

An older style blue mini-van with Alberta plates the pair was believed to have been travelling was found at the scene.

Chynna Noelle Deese of the United States and Lucas Robertson Fowler of Australia are the victims of a double homicide in Northern B.C. Their bodies were found on the Alaska Highway on Monday.

Australian police have confirmed that a young man found dead with a young woman along the Alaska Highway in northern B.C. earlier this week is the son of a senior New South Wales officer.

One eyewitness said that she and her husband drove past a couple matching their description, but did not stop as they did not appear to be in any distress.

"This investigation is in it's very infancy and it is not yet clear whether Lucas and Chynna were targeted or if this was a crime of opportunity". There is nothing to indicate they are linked to any other ongoing or previous investigation.

Stephen Fowler issued a statement, which is posted on the New South Wales Police Force site, expressing their devastation over the loss of Fowler and Deese, who were travelling the world.
