Vancouver/CMEDIA: Two fugitives who had outstanding warrants for their arrests were reportedly accused of murders of four B.C. men who died in a mysterious small plane crash in a remote part of northwestern Ontario.

The Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit said in a statement on Tuesday (May 3) that Gene Karl Lahrkamp of Trail, B.C. was one of four people who died when a small plane crashed Saturday (April 30) near Sioux Lookout in northwestern Ontario.

Lahrkamp was a suspected international hit man and former Canadian military member and ended up on a wanted list and on the run from the Royal Thai Police.

Lahrkamp and a second man, Matthew Dupre, 36 also with a Canadian military background, were accused by Royal Thai Police of murdering former Abbotsford gangster Jimi Sandhu after traveling to the island of Phuket and gunning Sandhu down on Feb. 5.

Dupre was arrested in Alberta and remains in jail, pending extradition.

Both Dupre and Lahrkamp had been reportedly released from the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) as corporals.
