Police to provide update on McArthur case this morning

Accused serial killer Bruce McArthur has been charged with an eighth count of first-degree murder, with Toronto police saying an worldwide agency helped them identify the new victim. The remains of seven others have also been found in large planters at the home.

Police have said they plan to search at least 70 more properties where they believe McArthur, a self-employed landscaper, worked. He said Kanagaratnam arrived from Sri Lanka in 2010 and was not on file as missing in Canada.

Police had previously identified the remains of six other victims in those planters. "We've had lots of worldwide calls since our pleas began from people who just haven't seen family members in years".

Idsinga said Kanagaratnam, who was identified with the help of an unnamed global agency, was allegedly killed between September and December 2015.

Police allege he was murdered in 2015 and was not reported missing.

Idsinga said investigators confirmed his identity with the help of an "international agency" but wouldn't expand on that.

A grisly photograph of an unidentified deceased man, believed by homicide investigators to be the eighth victim of the 66-year-old landscaper, was released last month.

He went on to stress that City were worthy champions. "They won because they were the best team and lost only a few points". And while Walker admits to wanting Liverpool to win the competition, he is gutted City will not get the chance.

It remains unclear how the man was identified or where he was from. Police have not said whether Mahmudi had any sort of relationship with McArthur.

The alleged victims fit a pattern: Most were of Middle Eastern or South Asian descent and lived on the margins of Canadian society, their disappearances attracting little attention.

Esen, 44, of Toronto, vanished from the city's gay village on April 14, 2017. Five months later, police charged McArthur with Esen's presumed death. Kinsman was a subject of Project Prism, and police have said he had a sexual relationship with McArthur. Karen Coles said he was "well-known in his community" and "loved by all". He had no direct family in Canada and was never reported missing.

McArthur made a brief video court appearance on Monday to hear the new murder charge. Investigators say the 42-year-old was last seen in Toronto's gay village.

Idsinga said Kanagaratnam's remains were found at a home McArthur used as storage for his landscaping business.

Unlike the other victims, there is no prior evidence linking Kanagaratnam to Toronto's Gay Village, Idsinga said.

A police source told CBC News that police had found Kanagaratnam's photo on McArthur's computer, but his identity was unknown at the time.
