Bruce McArthur charged with 8th count of murder

Bruce McArthur charged with 8th count of murder”

Toronto police will provide another update into the ongoing investigation into alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur.

The latest victim has been identified as Kirushna Kumar Kanagaratnam.

McArthur had previously faced seven charges of first-degree murder in the deaths of men linked to Toronto's gay community.

Investigators did not release the man's name last week, because they still had not been able to notify his next of kin.

Kanagaratnam arrived in Canada in 2010 from Sri Lanka.

In early March, police released a photograph of a dead man believed to be another one of the McArthur's alleged victims, saying they needed help identifying the bearded middle-aged individual.

Mr. Kanagaratnam, who was 37 when he is believed to have been killed, did not have direct family in Canada and had not been reported missing, Det.

It is likely that McArthur will face charges in relation to the man's death.

The 66-year-old landscaper is now facing seven first-degree murder charges for allegedly killing Andrew Kinsman, 49; Selim Esen, 44; Majeed Kayhan, 59; Soroush Mahmudi, 50; Dean Lisowick, 47; Skandaraj "Skanda" Navaratnam, 40, and Abdulbasir Faizi, 42.

The sprawling investigation into McArthur is probing cold cases that go as far back as 1975.

Kanagaratnam's remains were recovered from garden planters at a home in central Toronto where McArthur kept his landscaping equipment.
