Could newly discovered "sterile" neutrinos explain dark matter ?

    Who knows? The experiments haven't been tested thoroughly yet.

    There are some very highly-regarded mathematicians/physicists who think there
    is no such thing as dark matter and that the six-sigma experiments are tainted
    and/or that there are mathematical difficulties that lead to results that seem
    to imply the existence of dark matter.
