Canada’s horrific knife rampage over as last suspect dies

Canada Stabbings

ROSTHERN, Saskatchewan (AP) — The last suspect in a horrific stabbing spree that killed 10 and wounded 18 in western Canada is dead following his capture.

Police hope Wednesday’s stunning end to a gripping hunt that stretched into a fourth day will bring some peace to victims’ families.

One official says 32-year-old Myles Sanderson died from self-inflicted injuries after police forced the stolen car he was driving off a highway in Saskatchewan. Other officials have declined to discuss how he died, but say an independent investigation into the incident has begun.

Sanderson’s 30-year-old brother, Damien, was the other suspect and he was found dead Monday near the scene of the bloody knife attacks inside and around the James Smith Cree First Nation reserve.
