Alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur faces seventh charge of first-degree murder

Alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur faces seventh charge of first-degree murder

McArthur appeared by video in a Toronto courtroom this morning where the new charge was announced but no victim name was immediately provided.

Police have said they've recovered the remains of seven people from planter pots around a home in midtown Toronto where McArthur worked and stored his equipment.

Idsinga said the investigation, which he has previously described as unprecedented in size and scope, is now also scrutinizing 15 unsolved homicides that took place between 1975 and 1997. Sgt. Hank Idsinga says they have now identified three more as belonging to Selim Esen, Dean Lisowick, and Abdulbasir Faizi.

Some of the remains, police said, belong to 49-year-old Andrew Kinsman, 50-year-old Soroush Mahmudi, and 40-year-old Skandaraj Navaratnam.

February 23, 2018 - Police lay a sixth charge of first-degree murder against McArthur, identify Navaratnam as one of the alleged victims whose remains were found in the planters.

Idsinga says police are now re-examining 15 cold cases dating back as far as 1975 in their investigation.

In addition to the cold cases, police have also increased the number of properties on their list to search from 30 to 75. "I think it's easily set the record for a forensic examination of an apartment". He said the majority of the cases involve gay men or victims with links to the gay village.

As soon as they then went to police, officers immediate he had most definitely merely left, the relative talked about.

Mr. McArthur, who has also been charged with the deaths of Mr. Navaratnam and Mr. Kayhan, was interviewed as a part of Project Houston. The image showed a bearded middle-aged man with his eyes partially closed.

Police talked about Wednesday they've narrowed down the attainable identities of a ineffective man believed to be one different sufferer of McArthur's, whose they launched in early March, to 22.

Faizi was first reported missing to Peel regional police by his family, Idsinga said. Police released a digitally enhanced version of the photograph along with a rendition of what the man may have looked like during the press conference. He is scheduled to return to court April 25 to find out whether any more evidence has been turned over to the defence.

Later in January, they charged him with the deaths of Majeed Kayhan, 58, missing since 2012; Mahmudi, reported missing in 2015; and Lisowick, a homeless man who hasn't been reported missing but whom police believe may have died between May 2016 and July 2017.
