DThree days after a series of knife attacks that left ten dead in Canada, police arrested the only remaining murder suspect. The 30-year-old was arrested on Wednesday afternoon (local time) near the village of Rosthern in the province of Saskatchewan, the investigators said.
The man, along with his brother, is said to be responsible for the bloody crimes on the James Smith Cree First Nation reservation and in the village of Weldon. Both crime scenes are in Saskatchewan. Ten people were killed and 18 injured early Sunday morning. The older brother’s body was found Monday and, according to police, showed injuries that he believed were not self-inflicted. The background to the crime is still unknown.
On Tuesday it became known that the arrested man had been repeatedly delinquent for more than two decades “without major interruptions”. As an adult, he was convicted on 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 has struggled with alcohol and drug problems since late childhood and began using cocaine at the age of 14.
