Toronto police find 7th victim in serial killer case

Toronto police find 7th victim in serial killer case”

Authorities in Canada believe they have identified yet another victim of alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur.

Many of his alleged victims were men who disappeared from Toronto's gay village.

The earliest murder charge against McArthur dates back to 2010, prompting the Alliance for South Asian AIDS Prevention to ask Toronto police to review whether there has been any discrimination in its investigation.

Police said the latest unidentified remains were found in a planter at the same Toronto property where six other sets of remains were found.

The dismembered parts of six individuals were found this year in large planters at a house where the suspect, Bruce McArthur, carried out landscaping work and which he used for storage. Sgt. Hank Idsinga, "The city of Toronto has never seen anything like this".

The victims now known to police are Andrew Kinsman, 49, who had a long-term sexual relationship with McArthur; Skandaraj Navaratnam, 40, who went missing in 2010; and Soroush Mahmudi, 50, whose disappearance was reported nearly three years ago. "But the investigation had no outcome and police said there was no evidence".

The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, also says that some 40 tips have come in to police since the photo was released, though none of the people who have come forward have said definitively that the man pictured was a relative.

Dozens of officers have now been assigned to the investigation, which Idsinga has said has expanded to include "hundreds of outstanding missing person cases", old murders and some "sudden deaths". On January 29, police announced McArthur would be charged with murdering one of those individuals: 58-year-old Majeed Kayhan, reported missing in November 2012. So far, police have confirmed a relationship between Kinsman and McArthur, though Grey would not elaborate on exactly how long the relationship lasted.

Vijayanathan says he suspects that police would have looked more aggressively into the disappearance of white women than a bunch of missing queer men with foreign backgrounds. A court convicted Ilich Ramírez Sánchez, his real name, previous year and handed him... Police believe McArthur met his victims in the area and through dating apps.

For now, McArthur remains in custody while police embark on what Idsinga characterizes as the biggest investigation in Toronto's history. He was accused of murdering several people and burying their remains inside large planters on the properties where he worked, according to The Guardian.
