Toronto man faces murder charges in six men's deaths

  • Bruce McArthur 66 has been charged with five counts of first-degree murder in the disappearances of Andrew Kinsman Selim Esen Majeed Kayhan Soroush Mahmudi and Dean Lisowick

-Sgt. Hank Idsinga says he expects more charges against the 66-year-old landscaper. The Toronto man was a subject of Project Prism, and police have said he had a sexual relationship with McArthur.

He said the remains of three other people were found in those planters, but police have been unable to identify them yet.

Toronto police said during an update earlier this month, the remains of at least six people were recovered at a property on Mallory Crescent, where McArthur performed landscaping work and stored supplies, as part of the investigation into McArthur.

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

McArthur, a self-employed landscaper, was arrested and charged with the first-degree murder of Selim Esen and Andrew Kinsman on January 18, following a months-long probe into missing persons cases of missing men from the city's Church-Wellesley Village.

"We are tracing (McArthur's) whereabouts as far back as we can go to see if we can link any outstanding occurrences to his movements and see where we go from there", he said.

Bubba Watson gets emotional after lifting 10th PGA Tour title
Watson is renowned for displaying his emotions and, again, there were tears after he made his final putt on the 18th green. He was within one shot of the lead when he hit a 4-iron from a deep bunker on the 15th hole to just right of the green.

"I have no evidence that would tell me that anybody else was involved in this", he said. That project began in 2013 to search for Navaratnam, Majeed Kayhan, a 58-year-old who was reported missing in October 2012, and one other missing man from the 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.

That brings the number of men McArthur is accused of killing to six.

Police excavated a drain in front of a house linked to McArthur on February 13 and have been searching other properties linked to him.
