Toronto Landscaper Charged With Multiple Counts of First Degree Murder

  • Bruce McArthur charged with three new counts of murder over men missing from Toronto's gay village

All five victims so far had ties to a predominantly gay neighborhood in Toronto and all were of Middle Eastern descent, according to NPR. He said that he has known McArthur for more than a decade and that an ex-partner went to a support group for gay fathers with McArthur.

"We know that many in the community are struggling to understand and process these developments", Idsinga said.

While officers continue to piece together the alleged murders, Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders is defending how his agency has handled the investigation to date. "There are at least two sites that we do want to excavate where people might be buried".

"He had wonderful clients and he was kind and generous to them", said Fraser on As It Happens, describing McArthur as a "cheerful, kind grandfather", who would make her laugh with stories about demanding clients.

The Toronto Police Service is facing considerable backlash for initially shutting down fears in Toronto's LGBTQ community that a serial killer was prowling the gay village.

"Obviously, the city of Toronto has never seen anything like this".

McArthur made a brief court appearance Monday and was remanded in custody until his next hearing February 14.

Earlier this week, police revealed that human remains had been discovered inside planters located on the property on Mallory Crescent.

Kennedy, a 37-year-old progressive, is a member of one the most well-known American dynasties, but he keeps a pretty low profile. His grandfather was Senator Robert Kennedy, and his great uncles include JFK and longtime Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy.

McArthur seems to have encountered money problems in the late '90s, first mortgaging the Oshawa house in 1997 and then declaring bankruptcy in 1999.

"He has been doing superficial landscaping, he cuts the grass, and rakes the leaves in the fall", Liddle said.

He added that about a dozen planters had been taken to be processed by forensic teams.

Inside, they found many items that have become relevant to the case but nothing more pressing than a man tied up on the bed in McArthur's room.

They also said they had received numerous tips, including from around the world, and appealed for anyone who might have information to them. He was reported missing in April past year.

The gathering will be held on Sunday, Feb. 4 at 7 p.m.at Metropolitan Community Church (MCC) of Toronto at 115 Simpson Ave., which is north of Gerrard Street East and west of Logan Avenue. Kinsman was reported missing in June.

The Toronto police had launched an investigation in November 2012 looking into the disappearances of three men from Gay Village.

Mahmudi was reported missing from Scarborough by his family in 2015.

Prior to his arrest two weeks ago, McArthur was self-employed as a landscaper under the company name "Artistic Design".
