Canada Stabbings: One Suspect Found Dead

Canada police have said that one of the two suspects in Sunday’s mass stabbings in Saskatchewan has been found dead.

The body of Damien Sanderson, 31, was found in the James Smith Cree Nation, home to several victims, they said.

The two suspects were brothers and police say Myles Sanderson is still at large and believed to be in the city of Regina.

On Sunday, 10 people were stabbed to death in one of the worst acts of violence in Canada’s recent history.

The attacks – which left another 18 people injured – happened in a remote region of Saskatchewan.

In Regina, the province’s capital city, where the suspects were last seen, families are in mourning and communities on edge.

But in the city centre on Monday evening, there were no obvious signs of the manhunt. The city was mostly quiet as families gathered to enjoy the Labour Day holiday, the unofficial end to summer.

Every so often, that calm was interrupted by piercing alerts ringing on mobile phones, warning of two adult male suspects, and then just one, still on the run.

Officers from three provinces – Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Alberta – are involved in the search.

The brutal spree of violence has rocked the typically peaceful province, with police investigating 13 different crime scenes.

Both Damien and Myles were charged with murder, despite not being arrested.
