Toronto police set to update Bruce McArthur case

Police to provide update on Bruce McArthur case today

Prosecutors in Canada have charged alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur with a seventh murder involving a missing man whose family initially thought he had abandoned his wife and two daughters.

Bruce McArthur, who appeared in court through a video link, has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Abdulbasir Faizi.

Sgt. Hank Idsinga said police have identified three more of the at least seven sets of remains found in planters at a midtown Toronto property where McArthur worked as a landscaper and stored tools.

Toronto police are expected to hold a news conference later today to provide an update on their investigation into McArthur.

McArthur has been charged with killing the three men, as well as Selim Esen, 44, Majeed Kayhan, 58, and Dean Lisowick, 43 or 44.

Foremost is the newest murder charge against McArthur that has been made possible by the identification of another body.

McCarthur was charged with a sixth count of first-degree murder on February 23 for the death of Skandaraj Navaratnam, 40, who hadn't been seen since September 2010.

Alleged victim Majeed Kayhan has not yet been identified. It closed after 18 months as it did not establish the whereabouts of the missing men or resolve the circumstances on their disappearances, police said.

Mr. Faizi's vehicle was found early in 2011 on Moore Ave, not far from the property where Mr. McArthur stored his landscaping tools, and where a number of the bodies have been located.

The remains of Andrew Kinsman, Soroush Mahmudi and Skandaraj Navaratnam had previously been identified, Idsinga said. Police said at the time that they believe the man was already dead when the photo was taken.

Bruce McArthur has been charged with the first-degree murder of Abdulbasir Faizi.

Idsinga said they are looking into another 15 other cold cases dating back to the 1975 but have not found a connection. The photo was released with the hope that a member of the public may be able to identify him.

Faizi was one of the men sought in the Toronto Police Service's Project Houston, which was launched in 2012 to investigate the disappearances of three men from Toronto's gay village.

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

He has been in custody since his arrest in January.

"We've quite frankly never seen anything like it", Idsinga said.
