One of the two suspects in last Sunday’s stabbing in Canada has been found dead by police. The local police announced this at a press conference on Monday.
The lifeless body of Damien Sanderson (31) was found in a lawn near a house under investigation by authorities. The man had visible injuries and police suspect they were inflicted by someone else.
His younger brother, 30-year-old Myles Sanderson, is still missing. He may be injured.
The duo are suspected of stabbings at thirteen different locations in the province of Saskatchewan. On Sunday, 10 people were killed and 19 others were injured. The men were formally charged on Monday with multiple murders.
According to the police, some victims were chosen at random, but others appear to have been deliberately attacked. The incidents took place in the village of James Smith Cree Nation and the hamlet of Weldon, which is home to an indigenous community.
Police have not yet released a motive for the stabbing. A statement issued by indigenous leaders suggests that the facts may be drug-related.
