Police also noted during a press conference that the second suspect, his brother Myles Sanderson, 30, is still at large.
Rhonda Blackmore, commander of the Mounted Police in the province of Saskatchewan, where the crime took place, warned that Myles Sanderson may be injured and is very dangerous.
The commander herself revealed that Damien’s body was located in a wooded area near a home on the James Smith Cree Nation Indian Reservation in Saskatchewan, which was being investigated by police officers.
The police officer did not rule out that Damien Sanderson died as a result of a confrontation with his brother.
“Myles has a long criminal history with both crimes against people and property. Myles is facing three counts of manslaughter and is being wanted. He we consider armed and dangerous. Don’t let anyone go near him,” Blackmore said.
For his part, the chief of police of Regina, the capital of Saskatchewan, Evan Bray, reiterated during the press conference that Myles Sanderson is suspected of being in the city.
Bray said that on Sunday the Police received information about the presence in Regina of a vehicle with two people, one of whom would be Myles Sanderson.
The police chief declared that the information “is still relevant” and that they have confirmed some of the evidence that would demonstrate the presence of the fugitive in the capital of Saskatchewan.
The stabbing attacks occurred Sunday in the James Smith Cree Nation, home to about 1,000 people, and in the nearby community of Weldon, population 200.
