Myles Sanderson Biography
Myles Sanderson, along with his brother Damien, was a person of interest in a series of stabbings that took place in the province of Saskatchewan in Canada and resulted in the deaths of ten people. His passing comes just two days after the body of Damien Sanderson was discovered with injuries that, according to the authorities, did not appear to be the result of self-infliction.
According to Blackmore, the police received information that a man matching the description of Myles Sanderson had stolen a vehicle, which led to a high-speed pursuit that ended with Sanderson’s apprehension. She claimed that law enforcement “directed” his vehicle into a ditch.
On Sunday morning, 13 people were stabbed across the James Smith Cree Nation and in the nearby village of Weldon. The incidents all took place in different locations. The police have stated that they believe some of the victims were attacked at random, while others were specifically targeted; however, a motive has not yet been determined.
Assistant Commissioner Rhonda Blackmore stated that prior to Sanderson’s arrest, she had visited James Smith Cree Nation, where many of the people there had told her that they were still terrified of the possibility that he might attack again. Blackmore made this statement after Sanderson was arrested.
According to what Blackmore said, “I hope that this brings them some closure in the sense that they can rest easy tonight knowing that Myles Sanderson is no longer a threat to them.”
Prior to their deaths, the two Sanderson brothers were each charged with a total of four counts of first-degree murder, two counts of attempted murder, and two counts of breaking and entering a residence. All of these charges were brought against them before their deaths.
Earlier Wednesday, the brothers’ parents pleaded with Sanderson to turn himself in. “Myles, my boy, turn yourself in. Please. You can do this,” his mother said in an interview with the CBC. “Come back. Turn yourself in. Do the right thing.”
They spoke on the condition their names and images and the location of the interview was not disclosed, the CBC said, citing safety concerns.
