The Canadian police have found the body of one of the suspects in the stabbings of last Sunday. In two neighboring villages in the province of Saskatchewan, a total of ten people were killed and another eighteen were injured. The other suspected perpetrator, his brother, is still missing and reportedly injured.
At issue is the body of 31-year-old Damien Sanderson. Police found him dead in the indigenous community of James Smith Cree Nation, the neighborhood where the stabbings took place. This was announced by Deputy Commissioner Rhonda Blackmore of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police at a press conference. They assume that his injuries were not self-inflicted.
His brother Myles Sanderson (30) has not yet been found. Police believe he is somewhere in the city of Regina and suspect that he too is injured. Myles Sanderson is believed to have an extensive criminal record.

The events occurred Sunday morning local time in the province of Saskatchewan, which is in central Canada. The two suspected perpetrators traveled to the remote villages of James Smith Cree Nation and Weldon, not far from the city of Prince Albert, which has an extensive indigenous population.
A total of ten people were killed at 13 different locations in the two villages. Among them were a 77-year-old man and a mother of two daughters. They are the first victims who could be identified. Eighteen other people were injured.
The suspected perpetrators fled the scene and police warned all residents of Saskatchewan as well as neighboring provinces to “remain vigilant.” They were urged to be on the lookout for a black Nissan SUV whose license plate was released.
To help find them as quickly as possible, police also distributed photos of the two brothers, along with their names and ages.
