The Saskatchewan RCMP is expected to bring to light additional details of the gruesome string of stabbings that took place on the James Smith Cree Nation on Sept. 4, 2022.
Myles Sanderson was responsible for taking the lives of 11 people and injuring 19 others within the Indigenous community. He was arrested on Sept. 7, 2022, near Rosthern, SK, following a four-day provincial manhunt, but later died while in police custody.
RCMP Assistant Commissioner Rhonda Blackmore, Commanding Officer of the RCMP is fulfilling her commitment to a preliminary timeline of the events that transpired on that day, which hopefully will answer some questions that have been looming since October 2022.
The presentation will begin at around 9:30 a.m. CST, in Melfort, SK, with A/Commr. Blackmore providing opening remarks, and Superintendent Joshua Graham, Officer in Charge of the Saskatchewan RCMP Major Crimes presenting the timeline.
RCMP is anticipating the presentation will last about four hours with a 45-minute Q&A session following the presentation.
Their press release stated that this presentation will not impact the two upcoming Saskatchewan Coroners Service inquests and the independent investigation being conducted by the Saskatoon Police Service and the Saskatchewan Serious Incident Response Team.
Stay tuned for more updates on this presentation.
