One suspect in Canada stabbings Found Dead, Other Still Without a Trace

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.

Ten dead in thirteen stabbings

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.

Manhunt

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.

EVERYTHING WE KNOW NOW. Ten dead and at least 15 injured in multiple stabbings in Canada, two suspects on the run

In the Canadian province of Saskatchewan, at least ten people have been killed and fifteen injured in stabbings at various locations. The police reported this at a press conference. It is possible that there are more victims. Two suspects are still on the run, and a large-scale manhunt is underway.

The suspects are 31-year-old Damien Sanderson and 30-year-old Myles Sanderson. They are believed to be travelling in a black Nissan Rogue, although police do not know if the pair have changed vehicles in the meantime. Police warn that the two are still believed to be “armed and dangerous” and have issued an alert for the province of Saskatchewan and for neighbouring provinces of Alberta and Manitoba. Nothing is yet known about a possible motive of the suspects. No information has been released either on the relationship between the suspects, who share the same surname.

The attacks took place in several places, including the villages of James Smith Cree Nation and Weldon in the province of Saskatchewan. The first report of a stabbing came in to police at 5.40am (local time) on Sunday, quickly followed by reports of several more stabbing incidents. The fatalities were found at thirteen different locations. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police are investigating the crime scenes. Leaders of the communities that make up James Smith Cree Nation have locally declared a state of emergency.

Injured “in critical condition”

According to the police, the attackers seem to have targeted some victims specifically, while other attacks seem to have been random. Some of the slightly injured may have gone to different hospitals for treatment, and police are urging them to get in touch. Meanwhile, health authorities in Saskatchewan reported that several injured people are “in critical condition”, raising concerns that the death toll could rise even further.

Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has since reacted to the attacks, calling them “horrific and heartbreaking”. The Prime Minister thanked all the police officers and aid workers involved and said that his thoughts were with the injured and the surviving relatives.
