Canadian police have found the body of one of two brothers wanted for a mass stabbing attack that left 10 people dead and 18 injured in the province of Saskatchewan on Sunday.

An officer said Damien Sanderson, 31, had injuries that did not appear self-inflicted – but gave no details, BBC reported.

He was found at the James Smith Cree Nation, the indigenous community where most of the victims lived. Sanderson’s brother Myles is at large and dangerous, according to officials.

The stabbing spree has rocked the usually peaceful province, with police investigating 13 different crime scenes.

The suspects’ motives remain unknown. Both were charged with murder, despite not being arrested.

Police on Monday said Damien Sanderson’s body had been found “in a heavily grassed area in proximity to a house that was being examined”, the BBC reported.

His injuries were “not believed to be self-inflicted at this point”, police Assistant Commissioner Rhonda Blackmore told reporters.

His 30-year-old brother might also have sustained injuries and police have warned the public he might seek medical assistance. But police did not say whether he was responsible for his brother’s death.

Myles Sanderson, who was previously known to the police, is described as having an “extensive and lengthy criminal record” dating back a number of years, it was reported.
