One of the suspects in a mass stabbing in Canada that killed 10 people has been found dead, police said Monday.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Saskatchewan said that Damien Sanderson, 31, was found dead with wounds that did not appear to be self-inflicted.
Damien was being sought, along with his 30-year-old brother Myles Sanderson, after 10 people were found dead and 18 others were injured in brutal stabbing at various locations in the province Sunday.
Damien’s body was found at 11:30 a.m. local time on a grassy area within the James Smith Cree Nation, home to a large Indeginous community where the majority of the stabbing victims were killed and injured.
Police altogether discovered victims at 13 separate crime scenes in both the First Nation community and the tiny village of Weldon as part of the grisly attacks. Cops said some of the victims were targeted, while others were randomly attacked.
Police believe Myles, who remains at large and should be considered armed and dangerous, is injured. He was last seen in the city of Regina, which is about 210 miles from the locations of the stabbings, on Sunday.
“Even if he is injured, it does not mean that he is not still dangerous,” RCMP Commanding Officer Assistant Commissioner Rhonda Blackmore said. “Myles has a lengthy criminal record involving both persons and property crimes… We consider him armed and dangerous. Do not approach him.”
Myles was known to police and has been wanted for a previous, unnamed crime since May.
He has been charged with three counts of first degree murder and one count of attempted murder in connection to the mass stabbing. Damien had also been charged charged with one count of first degree murder and one count of attempted murder. More charges are expected to be brought against the brothers.
The stabbing spree was one of the deadliest attacks in Canada’s history.
