Bruce McArthur: alleged Toronto serial killer charged with seventh murder

Alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur is now facing a seventh murder charge.The 66-year-old landscaper appeared by video in a Toronto courtroom this morning where the Crown said the new first-degree murder charge had been laid in the death of Abdulbasir Faizi.

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

McArthur is also charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of Skandaraj "Skanda" Navaratnam, Majeed Kayhan, Selim Esen, Andrew Kinsman, Soroush Mahmudi and Dean Lisowick.

Faizi's remains were among at least seven recovered from planters at a Toronto home in Leaside where McArthur once did landscaping work.

Police are expected Wednesday to provide an update on the photo of a dead man they released in early March, who is believed to be another victim of McArthur's.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, police suspect that McArthur was involved in the presumed death of a man who disappeared in 2013 while vacationing in Toronto. At Wednesday, authorities were hoping to identify a few of this human remains located in plantations in a Toronto property McArthur employed as storage because of his landscaping firm, as stated by the Associated Press.

However, police are still trying to identify a deceased man after they released a graphic image of him last month.

Police officers suggested he had just left, the relative said.

Police are also still reviewing seven cold case files dating back to the 1970s involving gay men who were slain in Toronto's downtown core after leaving bars popular in the LGBTQ community.

His auto was found abandoned not far from McArthur's home.

Idsinga said it's quite possible that the victim was not a resident of Toronto and that police were hoping to get tips to the man's identity from other countries as well.

Since his arrest, questions have been mounting about past interactions between McArthur and police, following revelations that police questioned him in 2016 in connection to an alleged assault on another man but was let go.

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.

In August 2017, police launched Project Prism, which looked into the disappearances of Kinsman and Esen. McArthur was interviewed by police during that project but it was closed in 2014.
