McArthur facing 6th murder charge as cops identify more remains

Toronto police update expected on investigation into accused serial killer Bruce McArthur

Toronto police detective Hank Idsinga said on Friday they believe Mr McArthur will face more charges. Toronto police have not yet released the location where the update will occur.

Initially, Police identified only one set of remains - those of Andrew Kinsman, another one of the men McArthur is accused of killing.

McArthur's alleged victims, from left to right: Selim Esen, Soroush Mahmudi, Dean Lisowick, Andrew Kinsman and Majeed Kayhan.

December 8, 2017 - Police Chief Mark Saunders says the force will review its practices in missing persons investigations.

He added that police are tracing McArthur's whereabouts "as far back as we can go".

Investigators have said there are likely more victims but have "no idea" how many more.

"I believe we have evidence on how some of them may have been killed". Navaratnam, 40, was reported missing in 2010 after last being seen leaving the now-defunct Zipperz nightclub in the heart of Toronto's Gay Village.

McArthur came under suspicion in September 2017 in connection with the disappearance of Kinsman, but police at first rejected suggestions that a serial killer was prowling Toronto's gay neighbourhood.

February 13, 2018 - Police say excavation at the home's backyard turned up no human remains, but suggest they may "revisit the scene" when the weather warms up.

Police have identified at least 30 properties where McArthur performed work as part of his landscaping business, and are planning excavations on at least two of those. Ten days later, Idsinga announced McArthur had also been charged with with the first-degree murders of Majeed Kayhan, Soroush Mahmudi and Dean Lisowick.

While the details of the case against McArthur are "disturbing" and "shocking" to family members of the missing men, Idsinga said some of them have been able to draw some comfort from having answers to questions that have lingered for years.

When asked how the two latest victims were identified, Idsinga said they used dental records.

McArthur was arrested on January 18, and has made two court appearances to date, via videolink.
