Ten people were killed in the attacks in Saskatchewan, Canada. Police issue arrest warrants for two suspected brothers. One of the two is found dead, the second is being searched for four days. Now the man is caught.
The brothers wanted for murder after a series of knife attacks that left ten dead in Canada are dead. On Wednesday afternoon (local time), the police arrested the younger of the two men near the village of Rosthern in Saskatchewan province - and then announced a few hours later , the 30-year-old died after a "medical emergency" in the hospital.
The two men are believed to be responsible for the bloody killings on the James Smith Cree First Nation reservation and in the village of Weldon that killed 10 and injured 18 on Sunday. The background to the knife attacks is still unknown - "and will probably never be clarified," as a police spokeswoman said at a press conference after the death of the second murder suspect. Despite repeated inquiries, she did not comment on the exact circumstances of his death. Myles Sanderson died from self-inflicted injuries, TV channels CBC and Global News reported, citing unnamed police sources.
It must now also be clarified whether the two brothers might have had helpers. The arrested man had been repeatedly delinquent for more than two decades "without major interruptions". As an adult, he was convicted of a total of 59 counts over the years, including assault, threats of violence and theft, according to a probation file from February that is available to the German Press Agency. The man had struggled with alcohol and drug problems since late childhood and began using cocaine at the age of 14.
