Police find 7th body linked to Canadian landscaper
Mar 07, 2018, 07:21
Cops say they were reluctant to release the photo - of a dark-skinned man in his early 40s - but had run out of options in identifying him.
The police does not exclude the possibility that some of the unidentified remains may belong to the Esen, Kahanu or Lisovyk.
Police have found seven sets of remains in planters recovered from a Toronto property where McArthur worked as a landscaper.
"I believe we have some evidence which would indicate the cause of death", Idsinga said, according to Canada's Global News.
They have not yet been identified with any of the victims to date, suggesting that there could be more than seven victims of the killer.
Numerous other alleged victims have been darker skinned and of South Asian or Middle Eastern descent who frequented the "Gay Village" area of Toronto. That means that the unidentified remains - along with the man in the photo - could push the number of victims to 11.
Detective Sgt Hank Idsinga, the lead investigator assigned to the case, stressed that he was releasing the photo to the public as a last resort, having failed to identify the man by all other means.
On Jan. 29, police laid three additional first-degree murder charges in the deaths of Majeed Kayhan, Soroush Mahmudi, and Dean Lisowick.
Toronto is reeling from allegations that McArthur systematically targeted men in the gay community.
It is believed that McArthur potentially kept photographs of his victims as "trophies", reports The Toronto Star.
Police have also identified the remains of three people - Navaratnam, Mahmudi and Kinsman - leaving four other sets of remains unidentified.
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.
Idsinga said investigators have been in contact with global law enforcement agencies in an attempt to paint a more complete picture of McArthur's comings and goings - and possible victims.
The 66-year-old landscaper is now facing six first-degree murder charges in relation to men who disappeared from Toronto's gay village or had ties to the city's LGBTQ community.
McArthur is due back in court on March 14.
McArthur came under suspicion in September 2017 in connection with the disappearance of Kinsman, but police at first rejected suggestions that a serial killer was prowling Toronto's gay neighbourhood. While police completed their search of "up to 20" planters that McArthur was known to use weeks ago, it only recently became evident that remains of a seventh person were among those previously discovered. Police believe McArthur met his victims in the area and through dating apps.
McArthur is now being held at the Toronto South Detention Centre in suburban Etobicoke.
