Seventh murder charge for alleged Toronto serial killer

Bruce McArthur expected to be charged with seventh murder today

Alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur is now facing a seventh murder charge.

Many of McArthur's alleged victims were the subject of two previous police probes into the disappearances of men from the city's gay village. While McArthur is believed to have met his victims on dating apps or Toronto's Gay Village, Judi Riley told CBC News that her brother, Jon, wasn't gay.

January 18, 2018 - McArthur is arrested and charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of Esen and Kinsman.

The news conference where Toronto Police will be giving out the details of the investigation has been scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Hours before that Bruce McArthur will be appearing in a Toronto court by video.

Faizi's disappearance was being investigated by Toronto police in connection with the disappearance of Skandaraj Navaratnam and Majeed Kayhan, 58, under an investigation dubbed Project Houston.

Alleged victim Majeed Kayhan has not yet been identified. He said a seventh set of remains has yet to be identified.

August 2017 - Police launch Project Prism to investigate the disappearances of Esen and Kinsman.

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




Mr. McArthur, who has also been charged with the deaths of Mr. Navaratnam and Mr. Kayhan, was interviewed as a part of Project Houston.

February 8, 2018 - Police say they've recovered the remains of six people from planters at a house where McArthur worked as a landscaper, and say they expect to lay more charges.

McArthur, 66, was wearing an orange jumpsuit and was standing close to the camera during his appearance, according to the Toronto Star.

Idsinga said the sprawling investigation is now scrutinizing 22 unsolved homicides that took place between 1975 and 1997.

Investigators have identified six sets of remains so far - 49-year-old Andrew Kinsman, 50-year-old Soroush Mahmudi, 40-year-old Skandaraj Navaratnam and now 44-year-old Esen, 42-year-old Faizi and 42-year-old Lisowick.

The city's police board has also approved an external review, requested by Mayor John Tory, that will look into how the force handled the cases of men missing from the gay village.

Police also released a forensic sketch of a man believed to be a victim of Mcarthur's, and said they're still trying to identify him. Police Chief Mark Saunders has also initiated an internal review that will become public, and has called for some form of public inquiry. He said police have received hundreds of tips, but have yet to identify the man in the image.
