Bruce McArthur: alleged Toronto serial killer charged with seventh murder

Bruce McArthur

Police will be providing an update this afternoon on the investigation into alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur.

Alleged victim Majeed Kayhan has not yet been identified.

The latest murder charge is in connection with the death of 42-year-old Abdulbasir Faizi, one of three missing men whose disappearances were probed by Toronto police's special investigation, Project Houston. He's accused of preying on men in the LGBTQ community who hung out in the downtown Gay Village.

As of Wednesday, authorities were still trying to identify some of the human remains found in planters at a Toronto property McArthur used as storage for his landscaping business, according to the Associated Press.

The remains of Andrew Kinsman, Soroush Mahmudi and Skandaraj Navaratnam had previously been identified, Idsinga said.

Det. -Sgt. Hank Idsinga also confirmed at a news conference Wednesday that investigators are reviewing 15 cold case murders that occurred between 1975 and 1997 to determine if there are any links to the alleged serial killings. It closed after 18 months as it did not establish the whereabouts of the missing men or resolve the circumstances on their disappearances, police said.

In all, police have seized more than 20 planters from various properties across the city and may soon excavate the lawns of several homes where McArthur did landscaping work in hopes of recovering potential evidence.

McArthur was charged with an additional three counts of first-degree murder on January 29 for the deaths of Majeed Kayhan, 58, Soroush Mahmudi, 50, and Dean Lisowick, believed to be 43 or 44.

When they then went to police, officers suggested he had probably just left, the relative said.

Earlier this year, investigators took the rare step of releasing a photo of a dead man they believe was murdered by McArthur in the hopes of identifying him.

The 2016 interaction was the second time police spoke with McArthur in the years before he was charged with murder.

The latest charge has been laid in the death of Abdulbasir Faizi, a 42-year-old married father of two who vanished on December 29 2010. They initially released a photo of the man last month and are working on tips they have received from the public. He was reported missing to Peel Region police the next day. "I think it's easily set the record for a forensic examination of an apartment".

Faizi was one of the men sought in the Toronto Police Service's Project Houston, which was launched in 2012 to investigate the disappearances of three men from Toronto's gay village.
