Myles Sanderson, the alleged perpetrator of the stabbing of 10 people last Sunday in Canada, has died shortly after being captured by the authorities. The agents had arrested him after stealing a car in a small town.
According to the latest information, the 32-year-old man has died after injuring himself.
Before his death, Rhonda Blackmore, commander of the Mounted Police, confirmed that the suspect had been arrested: “Tonight, our province can breathe quietly as Myles Sanderson has been captured. I can confirm that he is no longer a threat and that people are not in danger in connection with this investigation”.
The attacker was located in Wakaw, a small town in Saskatchewan province, a few kilometers from the indigenous reservation where the massacre occurred.
At the time of his arrest Sanderson was armed with a knife. About 15:30 (local time) the officers managed to apprehend him.
Authorities believe it was Myles himself who killed his brother Damien, the other suspect in the massacre on an indigenous reservation. In fact, it was two days ago that the US police found his body in a wooded area near a house under investigation.
Myles had a long criminal record for theft, assault and malicious conduct. In addition, according to several Canadian media, seven years ago he stabbed one of the 10 people who died on Sunday.
In February of this year he was released on parole and shortly afterwards, in May, the authorities began a search to find his whereabouts after he stopped attending meetings to follow up on his release.
