More remains found

UPDATE 6:39 a.m.

Investigators in Toronto have recovered a seventh set of remains linked to alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur, a police source said Monday.

McArthur, a 66-year-old self-employed landscaper, has been charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of six men who had disappeared from or had ties to Toronto's gay village.

The source said the new unidentified remains were found in a planter at the same Toronto property where six other sets were found, also in large planters.

The source spoke on the condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to release information ahead of a news conference set for 10:30 a.m. Monday.

McArthur was arrested in January and charged with the murders of Andrew Kinsman and Selim Esen, who went missing from Toronto's gay village in 2017.

ORIGINAL 5:25 a.m.

Toronto police have scheduled a news conference for 10:30 a.m. today to provide an update on their investigation into alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur.

They say the media briefing will be conducted by Homicide Detective Sergeant Hank Idsinga and Dr. Michael Pollanen, Chief Forensic Pathologist for the Province of Ontario.

McArthur has been charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of six men who had disappeared from, or had ties to Toronto's gay village.

Police have so far identified three sets of remains they found in large planters at a home where McArthur did gardening work and rented storage space — those of Andrew Kinsman, 49, Soroush Mahmudi, 50, and Skandaraj Navaratnam, 40.

The 66-year-old self-employed landscaper is charged with first-degree murder in connection with their deaths, and the presumed deaths of Selim Esen, 44, Majeed Kayhan, 58, and Dean Lisowick, either 43 or 44.
