Canadian stabbing attack: attack suspect dies after arrest

Hundreds of police had been tracking for more than three days, Myles Sanderson suspected of being responsible, with his brother Damien Sanderson, found dead on Monday, for these attacks whose motive remains unexplained.

It is one of the deadliest attacks in the country in recent years.

“Shortly after his arrest, Myles Sanderson entered medical distress,” Royal Canadian Mounted Police Assistant Commissioner Rhonda Blackmore told reporters, without giving any further explanation of this discomfort.

“He was pronounced dead in hospital,” she added.

At the end of the afternoon, the police announced his arrest on social networks: “Myles Sanderson has been located and taken into custody” before thanking the public for having provided “relevant information” allowing his capture.

The authorities fear, however, that the reasons for these attacks in the heart of the province of Saskatchewan, a vast rural territory made up of immense prairies, remain unknown.

“Now that Myles is deceased, we may never be able to understand his motives,” added Rhonda Blackmore, adding that more than 120 interviews with relatives or witnesses had already been conducted without this being able to shed light on the transition to the act.

The 32-year-old suspect, who was armed with a knife, was spotted after stealing a car in an area about 100 kilometers from the crime scene.
