Alleged Toronto serial killer facing another charge

Alleged Toronto serial killer facing another charge

The alleged Canadian serial-killer accused of devoting his victims garden trinkets is now dealing with a seventh murder charge, prosecutors in Toronto declared Wednesday.

The new charge was announced as the 66-year-old landscaper appeared by video in a Toronto courtroom Wednesday morning.

Mr. McArthur has already been charged with the first-degree murder of six other men who have connections to the city's LGBTQ community.

Investigators previously confirmed that the remains of at least seven people were found in planters on a property where the 66-year-old kept equipment for his landscaping business.

Further details are expected at a police news conference scheduled for this afternoon.

Some of the remains, police said, belong to 49-year-old Andrew Kinsman, 50-year-old Soroush Mahmudi, and 40-year-old Skandaraj Navaratnam. He has also been charged in the killings of Selim Esen, Majeed Kayhan and Dean Lisowick.

Kayhan's remains have not been identified thus far, Idsinga said.

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. 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.

He might have had a blip earlier this season when Madrid had a blip, but that is irrelevant as his record speaks for itself. Cristiano Ronaldo has scored in all six of his Champions League games against Juventus , netting nine goals in total.

Police also have evidence that leads them to believe that Lisowick was killed in April of 2016, he said.

Idsinga says police are now re-examining 15 cold cases dating back as far as 1975 in their investigation.

His vehicle, a 2002 Nissan Sentra, was found abandoned on Moore Ave., near St. Clair Ave. and Mount Pleasant Rd. - a short drive from where McArthur worked as a landscaper.

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

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. They went missing between 2010 and 2017.

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