One of Two Suspects in Canada Mass Stabbing Found Dead

Canadian police found the body of one of two suspects wanted for killing ten people and wounding 18 in a mass stabbing on Sunday.

A police officer said the suspect found dead, identified as Damien Sanderson, had injuries that did not appear to be self-inflicted. The 31-year-old man was found in the James Smith Cree Nation, an indigenous community where most victims lived.

Damian’s brother, Myles Sanderson, is the second suspect in the crime. According to police, the 30-year-old man is at large and dangerous.

The Sanderson brothers were charged with murder despite not having been arrested. Their motives remain unknown.

Canadian police said they found Damian’s body in a grassy area near a house now under examination.

Police Deputy Commissioner Rhonda Blackmore said there was no indication that the injuries were self-inflicted. It’s also unclear if Myles had anything to do with his brother’s death.

Investigators believe Myles has also been injured and may seek medical attention. According to police reports, he was previously known to officers and had an “extensive and lengthy criminal record.”

The mass stabbings have caused shock across the province of Saskatchewan, as it is usually peaceful. Police revealed that 13 different crime scenes were under ongoing investigation there.

Meanwhile, the chief of the Federation of Sovereign Indian Nations, which represents Saskatchewan’s 74 First Nations, Bobby Cameron, asked residents to share any information they may have about the attacks “for the sake of families,” stating that ” someone out there knows something.”

The extensive manhunt against the two Sanderson brothers came after they killed at least ten people in a rampage that rocked Canada on Sunday.

The victims were found at 13 locations in the James Smith Cree Nation and the area surrounding Weldon. Another 18 people were injured.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the stabbings, considered Canada’s deadliest mass violence, “heartbreaking.”

“This kind of violence, or any kind of violence has no place in our country,” he said, adding that such tragedies had become “all too commonplace.”
