Adjust Comment Print

Alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur is now facing a seventh charge of first-degree murder. He's accused of preying on men in the LGBTQ community who hung out in the downtown Gay Village.

Those remains have been found in planter pots at a home in midtown Toronto where McArthur worked and stored his equipment.

McArthur was already facing charges in the murders of Toronto residents Dean Lisowick, 47; Soroush Marmudi, 50; Majeed Kayhan, 58; Andrew Kinsman, 49; Selim Esen, 44 and Skandaraj Navaratnam, 40.

A month later, on February 23, McArthur was charged with a sixth count of first-degree murder in connection with the death of Skandaraj Navaratnam. He says police also plan to investigate 75 properties linked to McArthur starting next month.

Idsinga says the remains of alleged victim Majeed Kayhan have not been identified.

We can't say exactly how many at this point", Mohammed Achour, Chief Spokesperson for the civil protection agency, told media. The plane had been transporting dozens of troops and equipment when it crashed, according to local reports .

Police also released an enhanced version of a photograph of a dead man they are trying to identify. "It didn't make sense that police had this theory that he ran away", she said.

Faizi's auto was found a short distance from the house McArthur used as storage.

The 2016 interaction was the second time police spoke with McArthur in the years before he was charged with murder.

Det. -Sgt. Hank Idsinga also confirmed at a news conference Wednesday that investigators are reviewing 15 cold case murders that occurred between 1975 and 1997 to determine if there are any links to the alleged serial killings. The photo was released with the hope that a member of the public may be able to identify him.

No more remains have been found, but police are set to provide more information about those that have been uncovered.

The Border Patrol said it caught around 50,000 people in March, more than three times the number in March 2017. Rios said the added troops are unnecessary and that arrests at the U.S. -Mexico border are at an all-time low.

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.

Idsinga said it's quite possible that the victim was not a resident of Toronto and that police were hoping to get tips to the man's identity from other countries as well. McArthur was interviewed by police during that project but it was closed in 2014.

Lisowick, a homeless prostitute who struggled with drugs hadn't even been reported missing when police announced he was one of victims.
