In a bizarre turn to a grisly episode, the second suspect in the deadly mass stabbings in Canada was found Wednesday, but died from what were called “self-inflicted injuries.”

According to the Associated Press, Myles Sanderson, 30, was driving on a rural Saskatchewan highway and forced off the road  into a ditch by police. As officers closed in, they found the suspect dead.

The body of his brother, Damien Sanderson, 30, was found two days ago in a field. Police are investigating the possibility that Myles had killed Damien.

The deadly knife rampage killed 10 people and wounded 18 others.

Weather: Heat to peak soon

If you can hold on to your ice cubes for a couple of more days, relief from this heat wave broiling the West Orange County area – and much of California – should crest by Friday and begin cooling. The forecast for Thursday is for a daytime high of 98 with an overnight low of 81 under partly cloudy skies. Friday is expected to bring a daytime high of 95 (78) with showers in the evening. Saturday will be wet, but a lot cooler at 81 (73).
