Two men were arrested on suspicion of murdering 10 Canadians in a stabbing attack. An image of the vehicle they were travelling in was also released.
At least 18 others were also hurt in a series of knife attacks at an Indigenous community and nearby town in Saskatchewan province.
It is the most brutal mass murder in Canada‘s historical history.
Police say warrants were issued for Damien Sanderson (31-year-old) and Myles Sanderson (30 year old), who are still on the run.
According to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, they are wanted for attempted and murder.
Two suspects were seen driving a Nissan Rogue black car more than 200 miles from the scene of the stabbings.
A photo of the vehicle was posted by a woman on Facebook, with the caption “This is my brothers’ vehicle when they entered our house this morning in James Smith Cree Nation.”
“We can’t care less about the vehicle, but these monsters should be caught.”
Although police have not yet revealed the motive for the stabbings, a statement by an indigenous group suggests that they could be drug-related.
Myles Sanderson is “unlawfully at Large” since May, when a crimestoppers appeal was made to try and trace him.
According to CBC News, he was serving a nearly five-year sentence for crimes including assault and robbery. He was released on parole after which he disappeared.
Who were they?
Officers have stated that some victims were attacked randomly, while others were targeted.
Lana Head was one of the victims. Her ex-partner posted a touching tribute to her on Facebook.
Michael Brett Burns, who shared two daughters with Ms Head wrote: “You’ll be missed dearly Lana. We are grateful for your beautiful granddaughters and daughters. Love.”
M. Burns spoke to the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network and said that it was sickening how drugs, jail, and alcohol could destroy many lives. All this pain has hurt me.
Another victim was identified as Wes Petterson (a 77-year old widower). He was described by local residents to be a “good-hearted, kind-hearted man” who wouldn’t hurt any fly.
A neighbour reported that his adult grandson was in basement at the time. He called police.
Police are currently investigating 13 crimes at the scene.
“We will not stop until suspects are in custody”
Evan Bray, chief officer of Regina’s police service, stated that the suspects are “still at large” despite his “continued, relentless efforts” in finding them.
He stated, “We won’t stop this investigation until those two are safely in custody.”
“We believe that somebody out there has the information necessary to help police locate these two.
“I urge all of you to contact your local police department to let them know.
“There is a lot grief and anxiety in our provinces and our communities.”
Bobby Cameron, chief of Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations said that: “This is what we face when harmful drugs invade our communities. We demand all authorities take direction from chiefs and councils as well their members to create safer, healthier communities for our citizens.”
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the incidents “horrific” and “heartbreaking”, while Scott Moe, the provincial premier, said that he could not find the words to adequately describe the “senseless violence and pain”.
