Charlotte woman, boyfriend murdered while traveling in Canada
Chynna Deese, 24, and her boyfriend, Lucas Fowler, were found shot and killed on a remote western Canadian highway Monday near their broken down van.
Officials said they were exploring Canadian national parks and heading to Alaska.
"It is a love story, a southern girl goes out of the country, meets this Australian and they were just the same personality," said Sheila Deese, Chynna’s mother. "It was like two butterflies that found each other and they were going to be forever."

Driving apps like Waze or Google Maps try to show you the shortest route, and apps like those often direct motorists to exit jump to save time.
"It's not saving you much time, and it's putting you at risk and causing more wear and tear to your car," North Carolina Highway Patrol Trooper Ray Pierce said.
