The Second Suspect of Canada’s Stabbing Killer Spree is in Custody

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police announced on Wednesday that the second suspect of the mass stabbing killing massacre in the James Smith Cree Reservation, Saskatchewan province is in custody. Myles Sanderson (32) was located in the vicinity of the town of Rosthern in Saskatchewan at about 3:30 p.m. local time. According to BBC, he drove a stolen Chevy Suburban. The fugitive brothers were wanted by law enforcement since the incident occurred. One of the suspects, Damien Sanderson (30) was found dead on Monday near the stabbing sites. 10 people were killed and 18 people were injured in this stabbing massacre.

Sanderson was finally arrested after 3 days of manhunt. Authorities explained that the victims might all be related. The Saskatchewan Coroner’s Service said 9 of the victims were from the James Smith Cree Nations and ages ranged from 23 to 78 years old.

The suspect, Myles Sanderson (32) has a long history of the crime and was recently released on parole in February. By May, he was wanted by law enforcement. Canadian law grants prisoners statutory release after they serve two-thirds of their sentences. Thus it is unclear whether Sanderson gets life in prison or is released at some other time.
