Police are unsure of the exact cause of death and do not rule out the possibility that his brother killed him. They think Myles Sanderson is injured and on the run. Myles Sanderson has been wanted for a prior crime since last May. Blackmore said Myles Sanderson’s criminal history, which includes violence, goes back years.

“Even though he’s injured, that doesn’t mean he’s not still dangerous,” Blackmore told the New York Post. “Myles has a lengthy criminal record involving both crimes against the person and property… We consider him armed and dangerous. Do not approach him.”
