The Saskatchewan RCMP Major Crimes Unit has announced that they will be presenting a preliminary timeline of the events that took place at James Smith Cree Nation in early September, which left 11 individuals dead and 18 more injured.
On September 4, 2023, Myles Sanderson stabbed multiple people before going into medical distress and passing after shortly after being taken into custody.
The presentation, which is set to take place at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, comes after a commitment was made by Assistant Commissioner Rhonda Blackmore, Commanding Officer of the Saskatchewan RCMP, to share a preliminary timeline of events related to the tragic day.
Blackmore will be joined by Superintendent Joshua Graham, Officer in Charge of the Saskatchewan RCMP Major Crimes to present the timeline.
Sergeant Audrey Soucy will be moderating the event and presenting the timeline in French.
The information to be released 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.
The presentation is expected to run for approximately four hours and will be live streamed to the Saskatchewan RCMP's Facebook pages.
There will be a 45-minute question and answer period following the presentation.
