Alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur charged with murdering Sri Lankan man

Police in Toronto, Canada, have charged alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur with an eighth count of first-degree murder after identifying another set of remains. Idsinga said there is also no indication that Kanagaratnam was active on an online dating website.

Idsinga said more remains might be found at the home McArthur used as storage and that 75 properties linked to the landscaper are under investigation.

Kanagaratnam moved to Canada from Sri Lanka.

He said the man was identified through help from an unnamed worldwide agency as well as an unusual photograph police released last month. But Idsinga confirmed last week the man may not be from Toronto, and said investigators had been following up with some worldwide agencies in relation to the photo.

Police allege Kanagaratnam, 37, was killed sometime between September 3 and December 14, 2015, but Idsinga would not elaborate on what brought them to that conclusion.

Police say they plan to search at least 70 more properties where they believe the 66-year-old self-employed landscaper has worked. "The identification was confirmed with the assistance from an global government agency", he said but would not offer further details.

Since then, police have named Skandaraj Navaratnam, 40, who disappeared on Labour Day weekend in 2010; Soroush Mahmudi, 50, reported missing in 2015; Dean Lisowick, 47, who is believed to have been killed in April 2016; Abdulbasir Faizi, 42, who disappeared in 2010; and Majeed Kayhan, 58, who disappeared in 2012.

"We have a lot of searches still to do", he said.

"He was not on file as missing and there is no evidence to link him to the Gay Village", Idsinga said. "We just don't know yet", Idsinga said previously.

They have also said their investigation could reach as far back as 1975. Police have not said whether Mahmudi had any sort of relationship with McArthur.

The remains of all but Kayhan were found in planters at the home of one of McArthur's landscaping clients, Idsinga said, adding Kayhan's remains have yet to be identified. Although police initially said they found the remains of eight people, Idsinga could not definitely say if, between the various body parts found in the planters, the remains of other victims not yet identified were mixed in.

In August 2017, police launched Project Prism, which looked into the disappearances of Kinsman and Esen.

Since his mid-January arrest, the probe into his life has grown larger.
