1 stabbing suspect located dead Monday on James Smith Cree Nation
Police are continuing to search for one of two suspects accused of murder in relation to a mass stabbing that left 10 people dead and 18 injured in the area of James Smith Cree Nation and the nearby village of Weldon, Sask.
Those tallies do not include the suspects, Damien and Myles Sanderson. Damien Sanderson, 31, was found dead Monday with wounds that did not seem self-inflicted, according to RCMP. The second suspect and Sanderson's brother, Myles Sanderson, is still at large as of Monday night.
James Smith Cree Nation is located about 60 kilometres southeast of Prince Albert and about 25 kilometres northeast of Weldon.
Police from Saskatchewan, Alberta and Manitoba were searching for the Sandersons after the attacks prompted a dangerous persons alert Sunday morning.
Myles Sanderson is facing three counts of first-degree murder, as well as attempted murder and break and enter.
Police say he may have sustained injuries, though it hasn't been confirmed. He was last believed to be driving a black Nissan Rogue with the licence plate 119 MPI on Sunday and police say that vehicle was reported in Regina at 11:20 a.m. CST the same day.
CBC News confirmed Tuesday that Earl Burns Sr., a veteran, is among the deceased.
The Saskatchewan First Nations Veterans Association sent its condolences to the Burns family following his death.
