Myles Sanderson Biography Myles Sanderson Wiki
The second man wanted in a grisly spate of stabbings on an indigenous reservation in Canada has been arrested after a four-day manhunt.
Myles Sanderson, who was the target of a massive manhunt in the province of Saskatchewan, was arrested near Rosthern on Wednesday afternoon, according to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
“There is no longer any public safety risk associated with this investigation. Updates are on the way,” an RCMP spokesman said in a statement.
Sanderson, 30, was the only suspect released in Sunday’s massacre that left 10 dead and 18 wounded on the James Smith Cree Nation reservation.
Sanderson’s brother Damien, his suspected accomplice in the massacre, was found dead Monday with injuries police say were not self-inflicted.

The RCMP said they are checking if Damien was killed by his brother.
“This is an investigative lead that we are following, but we cannot say definitively at this time,” said an RCMP spokesman.
All ten victims of the horrific stabbing on an indigenous reservation in Canada have been identified.
The victims were Lana Head, 49, mother of two; Christian Head, 54; Gregory Burns, 28; Gregory’s aunt Gloria Lydia Burns, 61, an addiction counselor who was killed with a knife in response to an 911 call; Gloria’s sister-in-law Bonnie Burns, 48; Thomas Burns, 23; Carol Burns, 46; Earl Burns, a Canadian military veteran; Robert Sanderson, 49; and Wesley Patterson, 77.
Myles Sanderson has been wanted since May, when he stopped attending mandatory court visits with his detention officer.
According to Regina Police Chief Evan Bray, he went missing while on probation and was sentenced to five years in prison for assault, robbery, malice and outspoken threats.
He was charged with triple first-degree murder, attempted murder and burglary.
Damien Sanderson was previously charged with first-degree murder, attempted murder and burglary. But the police confirmed that he has now been found dead.
‘We know. We are confident that someone out there knows where these two are and has information that would be valuable to law enforcement,” Bray said.
The brothers fled in a black Nissan Rogue SUV that was spotted 200 miles south of the native reservation.
The brothers allegedly stabbed the victims at 13 locations on the Native Reservation and in the nearby village of Weldon, northeast of the city of Saskatoon.
