And Where’s Acajack?
I'm assuming he is sitting by his pool keeping cool

I doubt they would have turned towards Thompson if they'd realized they'd dead-end by going that way.

They were far north to start with because they went first to visit Whitehorse in Yukon then returned to BC and the murders occurred shortly afterwards in northern BC near the Yukon border. According to family accounts the families had the understanding the boys would ultimately be headed for Edmonton to look for work. I guess after the incidents happened they just headed due east taking the most northerly routes that would take them through the more remote roads of each province so they could avoid being seen by many people.

I don't believe they intend to go out in a blaze of glory, I think they are just panicked and running for their lives now. That suicide by cop and blaze of glory stuff was what the one boy's father said, but that man appears to be a drunken attention seeking drama queen (as BruSan noticed in his first interview), and I think he has made that up in his own mind. It was obvious he was drunk as a lord during his last interview but even so he was still putting on an act and being melodramatic and was scrunching up pretending to be crying, but there were no tears in his eyes and no change in complexion. So I don't give the father any credibility after seeing his behaviour and hearing what he said about his own son and that boy's mother is gone, the kid spent more time staying with his grandma, not with his dad. His Grandma and the other boy's family are refusing to comment.

.
I didn't see the father on TV yet, but my friends who have, seem to agree with you. That he is a bit of a loose cannon, and an attention seeker.

I cannot think of a better outcome for those who've spent far too much time comfortably ensconced sitting in front of a flat screen pretend machine gunning hoards of threatening zombies and cannot make any better use of their future time than to seek a similar thrill in real life.

Such a terrible waste all around.

This is what happens when young men spend all their time playing violent videogames instead of going outside, socializing, and meeting girls their age.

I'm just speculating here, but it seems to me that they would not have burned the Rav4 until they secured another vehicle....Perhaps someone not from Gillam, but someone just passing through...I hate to say it I would not be surprised if another body, or bodies are eventually found...

By the way I lived in Port Alberni for 25 years until 1991....It had it's rough side then, but nothing like this.

It makes no sense to me either that anyone would burn their only means of transportation in such a locale. The police made mention today that perhaps someone had inadvertently helped them get away.
