Canadian manhunt for suspect in deadly stabbings stretches into 4th day

By Ismail Shakil and Steve Scherer

OTTAWA, Sept 7 (Reuters) - Canadian police searched into a fourth day on Wednesday for the remaining suspect in a stabbing spree in which 10 people were killed in and around an indigenous community, rattling a country unaccustomed to acts of mass violence.

Myles Sanderson, 30, whose brother and accused accomplice was himself found killed a day after Sunday's attacks in Saskatchewan province, was briefly believed to have resurfaced on Tuesday in the vicinity of the rampage, about 320 km (200 miles) north of the provincial capital of Regina.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) issued an alert on Tuesday of a possible sighting of the surviving brother in the indigenous reserve of James Smith Cree Nation, urging residents to remain indoors and be vigilant.

CBC News reported a heavy police presence on the indigenous reserve following that alert, but then said its investigation had determined the suspect was elsewhere.

Sanderson's whereabouts remain unknown and the public was urged to be cautious.

The Saskatchewan coroner's office and RCMP early Wednesday released the identities of the 10 victims killed. They include men and women, aged 23 to 78.

Authorities did not release information on the 18 people injured, except to say one was a young teen and the rest adults.
