Crown identifies seventh alleged victim of Bruce McArthur

Alleged Canadian serial killer Bruce McArthur faces a seventh murder charge Wednesday, Toronto police said.

The Crown announced the new murder charge in a city courtroom where McArthur appeared via video this morning.

A relative, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to a lack of permission from the family to speak publicly, said she is relieved Faizi's remains have been found.

Mr. McArthur has already been charged with the first-degree murder of six other men who have connections to the city's LGBTQ community.

McArthur, 66, was wearing an orange jumpsuit and was standing close to the camera during his physical appearance, based on this Toronto Star. It closed after 18 months as it did not establish the whereabouts of the missing men or resolve the circumstances of their disappearances, police said.

The first, named Project Houston, was launched in 2012 to investigate the disappearances of Faizi, Kayhan and Navaratnam. "As far as she is conscious of they'd been married they often had been snug and he abandoned her and the daughters", the relative talked about.

Skandaraj Navaratnam, 40, disappears from Toronto's gay village. In divorce records filed after his disappearance, his wife - and investigators - believed that Mr. Faizi had simply left the country.

Police are still trying to identify the remains of victims that were found at a house where McArthur stored his tools for his landscaping business.

"I can now add that the pathologists have identified the remains of Selim Esen, Dean Lisowick, and Abdulbasir Faizi", Idsinga said. He is scheduled to return to court April 25 to find out whether any more evidence has been turned over to the defence.

Police initially arrested McArthur in early January for the slayings of Esen, who went missing in April, and Kinsman, who went missing in June.

In addition to the ongoing homicide investigation, there are a number of other related probes, including an internal investigation of how officers handled an interaction with Mr. MrArthur in 2016. Police have said he was last seen in Toronto's gay village.

Idsinga said Faizi's vehicle was eventually located on a residential street less than two kilometres from a home where McArthur once worked as a landscaper and where police allege he buried the bodies of his alleged victims.

During Wednesday's briefing, Idsinga said they have received more than 500 tips with more than 70 possible identities for the man in the photo.
