Accused serial killer in Canada charged with seventh murder

Accused serial killer in Canada charged with seventh murder

Police are now re-examining 15 cold cases dating back as far as 1975 in their investigation of alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur.

In this artist's sketch, alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur makes an appearance via video in a Toronto courtroom, Wednesday, April 11, 2018. Police interviewed McArthur as a witness to Navaratnam's disappearance as part of the investigation.

McArthur, already accused in the deaths of six men with ties to Toronto's LGBTQ community, was charged Wednesday with killing 42-year-old Abdulbasir Faizi, who vanished from the neighbourhood known as the gay village in late 2010. Police have said he was last seen in Toronto's gay village. She said his vehicle was discovered six days later just around the corner from a house where human remains were recovered in planters in midtown Toronto.

Toronto police are also seeking the public's assistance in identifying another potential victim, whose graphic photo was released on March 5.

Speaking at a news conference to provide new information about the investigation, which has made worldwide headlines, lead investigator Det.

At least seven sets of remains, including Faizi's, have been recovered from planters located at the home, police have said.

"These remains are of individuals who have been dismembered", Idsinga said.

Now, Idsinga says he won't definitively say that there are only seven sets of remains - only that investigators have at least seven.

The investigative team is now reviewing 15 homicide cold cases from 1975 to 1997, he said. A short 13-minute auto ride away is McArthur's Thorncliffe Park apartment building. Idsinga said they have been able to obtain "quite a few exhibits" from the property and he expects they will be there for another couple of weeks.

"We've quite frankly never seen anything like it", the police officer said.

"I think it's easily set the record for a forensic examination of an apartment", Idsinga said.

Idsinga said Faisi, who was 42 when he disappeared on December 29, 2010, was one of the three men whose disappearances were linked through Project Houston, a task force launched by Toronto police in 2012, to look into the disappearances of the three men from Toronto's Gay Village. There is no evidence, Idsinga said, that can directly link McArthur to any of these cases.

Police have also increased the number of properties on their search list from 30 to 75.

While police could lay a charge without a name, Idsinga said that they would like to find out his identity before they do that and fully confirm that he's deceased.

Serial killer expert Peter Vronsky said he wasn't surprised to hear about another charge.

Police also have evidence that leads them to believe that Lisowick was killed in April of 2016, he said. "How far are these names going to come from?" They also release the photograph of a dead man believed to be a victim of McArthur in the hopes the public will help identify him. The image showed a bearded middle-aged man with his eyes partially closed. But in the time since releasing his photo, police revealed, they've received hundreds of tips about just who he might have been.

They've received over 500 tips about the photograph and are still looking at 22 possible identities.

"They are cases that potentially could be connected", Idsinga said. I don't want to hazard putting a number on it.

On Jan. 29, police laid three additional first-degree murder charges in the deaths of Majeed Kayhan, Soroush Mahmudi, and Dean Lisowick. The others had been reported missing at various times over the past eight years.

McArthur was arrested January 18 and charged with two counts of first-degree murder in connection with the disappearance of Andrew Kinsman and Selim Esen, who went missing from the Gay Village in 2017.
