Episode 148: Mass murder on a Canadian reserve - who was the killer on the run?
Royal Canadian Mountain Police have been criticised for their slow response times at the tiny indigenous reserve where the killings began
The last suspect in a horrific stabbing spree that killed 10 and wounded 18 in western Canada is dead following his capture, and police hope the stunning end to a gripping hunt that stretched into a fourth day will bring some peace to victims' families.
In an incredible scenario the famed Royal Canadian Mountain Police have been criticised for their slow response times at the tiny indigenous reserve where the killings began and now they are under an international spotlight as suspected crazed killer Myles Sanderson remains at large.
