One of the suspected killers that stabbed several to death found dead, one suspect still on the run
The body of a person who had suffered obvious trauma was found in one of the locations in the province of Saskatchewan where the heinous assaults took place, as the authorities in that province reported last night.
The second suspect, who is the brother of the assailant who was found dead, is still at large, and the reasons for the violent crimes that were committed are unknown.
“We cannot say for certain how Damien Sanderson died, but it is possible that he was killed by his brother, Miles Sanderson, who may also have been wounded,” said police officer Rhonda Blackmore. “The body of 31-year-old Damien Sanderson was found in the open, near a house in which the police were conducting a search.”
The local populace has been given a safety advisory by the police department as a precaution. According to Blackmore, “Miles Sanderson is categorized as extremely dangerous because his actions demonstrated the breadth of his violent tendencies.”
The police say that a warrant was issued for Miles Sanderson back in May, and one of the reasons for the warrant was because he was given a theft conviction and sentenced to five years in jail for the crime.
The stabbing incidents in the indigenous hamlet of James Smith Cree Nation, which took place at 13 separate sites and left 10 people dead and 18 others injured, are among the most heinous murders that have been committed in Canada in recent years.
The indigenous population of the country, which comprises approximately five percent of the entire population of 38 million people, accounts for the vast majority of those who are murdered with knives. A significant number of indigenous people make their homes in places that are frequently plagued by high rates of unemployment and poverty.
The residents of the affected area in Saskatchewan are currently in a state of disbelief.
The Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, expressed his dismay at the increasing frequency of heinous acts of violence. In a video message that he sent out to the people of the country yesterday, he told them, “There is no place for this type of brutality in our country.”
