Witnesses saw him speaking to Fowler by the road where they were later found.
What happened to the couple?
They were on a two-week-long road trip across Canada, where Lucas Fowler had been working.
Their 1986 blue Chevrolet minivan was found near their bodies, and eyewitnesses told media they had earlier seen the pair on the side of the road when their van had broken down.
It took three days for police to identify the couple.
Lucas Fowler’s father, Stephen, described the murder of his son and his girlfriend as “a love story that ended tragically” on Monday.
Stephen Fowler says they will not get involved in the case directly.
What is the other case?
Kam McLeod, 19, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, are still considered missing.
They had been on their way to Yukon territory for work last week and have not been in contact with their families since.
Their burnt-out camper van was found along the side of the road near Dease Lake on Friday, almost 500km away from where Fowler and Deese were found.
On Monday, officials acknowledged the “growing community concern” about the twin murder investigations, after earlier dismissing a link.
“It’s unusual to have two major investigations of this nature going on at the same time in northern B.C. (British Columbia), so we recognise the possibility that these could be linked,” Janelle Shoihet, public relations officer for the RCMP said.
Police are asking anyone with any information about either case to call Crimestoppers at 001-800-222-8477.
