  • Investigators haven't found any new remains but do have new information on what they've uncovered

Bruce McArthur, the Canadian landscaper tied to at least six slayings dating back to 2010, was charged with his seventh murder on Wednesday.

The new charge was announced as the 66-year-old landscaper appeared by video in a Toronto courtroom Wednesday morning. He's accused of preying on men in the LGBTQ community who hung out in the downtown Gay Village.

Investigators previously confirmed that the remains of at least seven people were found in planters on a property where the 66-year-old kept equipment for his landscaping business.

The latest charge comes just hours before Toronto police are scheduled at 1:30 p.m.to provide an update on three aspects of the investigation.

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.

Later that month, McArthur was charged with the first-degree murder of Majeed Kayhan, Soroush Mahmudi, and Dean Lisowick - whom police believe was killed in April 2016. In February, he was also charged in the death of Skandaraj Navaratnam. While he said there is no current evidence linking McArthur to the cold cases, they fit the general profile of the alleged victims identified to date. "It didn't make sense that police had this theory that he ran away", she said.

His auto, a 2002 Nissan Sentra, was found abandoned on Moore Ave., near St. Clair Ave. and Mount Pleasant Rd. - a short drive from where McArthur worked as a landscaper. Forensic specialists have since identified three sets of remains from McArthur's clients' house: Kinsman, 49; Mahmudi, 50; and Navaratnam, 40.

Idsinga said the sprawling investigation is now scrutinizing 15 unsolved homicides that took place between 1975 and 1997. They initially released a photo of the man last month and are working on tips they have received from the public. She said his auto was discovered six days later just around the corner from a house where human remains were recovered in planters in midtown Toronto.

The city's police board has also approved an external review, requested by Mayor John Tory, that will look into how the force handled the cases of men missing from the gay village.

"We've quite frankly never seen anything like it", Idsinga said. McArthur was interviewed by police during that project but it was closed in 2014. The two middle-aged men were reported missing in 2017.
