Myles Sanderson was the only killer in Canada mass stabbings, and his brother was a victim, police say.
Myles Sanderson is seen in a photo taken in 1993 with his twin brother, who has a small, crooked finger on his left hand.
The bodybuilder-turned-actor, who left behind a wife, mother and two children, died in a gunfight with police four years ago, leaving behind an unsolved murder case.
It’s now been revealed that Sanderson had an older twin brother, whose body was discovered in an Edmonton apartment in 2013.
Myles Sanderson: Life of crime
The siblings were separated as children and became close friends, The Edmonton Journal reported.
Twin brothers Myles and John Sanderson, both of Edmonton, were identified as possible suspects in the 1993 stabbing deaths of 15-year-old Jaleel Jones, who had just been released from hospital, and 16-year-old Darnell Jones.
The boys were arrested. Jaleel was found dead in his back yard, allegedly with his throat cut, while Darnell was found dead with a head wound in a dumpster.
Troy Sanderson: Myles Sanderson’s dad
The teen had a previous drug problem, police said, and investigators were told that he had been shot in a drive-by, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Police found Myles Sanderson’s body and an autopsy later determined he had been shot seven times.
It later emerged that Myles Sanderson’s father, Troy Sanderson, was an associate of John Sanderson who had been responsible for a number of bank robberies in the Edmonton area.
Myles Sanderson, then 18, and his brother John, then 19, were arrested, and a search of their home turned up more evidence against them.
But Jaleel’s father, Gary Williams, is still waiting for answers more than two decades after Jaleel’s death.
John Sanderson is serving two life sentences in prison after a jury found him guilty of first-degree murder and other charges.
Sanderson and his brother were originally charged with the murder but that dropped when their trial became a re-sentencing hearing for Jaleel
