Police to provide update on Bruce McArthur investigation

Toronto police say the remains of six people have been recovered as part of the ongoing Bruce McArthur murder investigation.

Though police have not identified all the body parts, they've positively identified one of of the victims as Andrew Kinsman, one of the missing men who disappeared from Toronto's Gay Village a year ago. Detective Idsinga told reporters on Thursday that police have now concluded their investigation inside the home, permitting the owners to return to the property as early as later tonight.

He said that police "haven't ruled out" that the remains may belong to people other than those whom police have previously identified as victims.

"I can't get into which parts were found where, but they were all within planters that were recovered", he said.

Police have identified more than 30 properties where McArthur worked and urged his past clients to come forward. The two-story home sits across from a park and next to small apartment buildings in an upscale neighborhood. Idsinga said police had been thawing the frozen ground for a week to expedite the dig, adding they have already identified some areas of particular interest.

Idsinga also said Toronto police are working with other police forces, but declined to name which ones. "I can be a bit shy until I get to know you, but am a romantic at heart", he wrote.

They have particularly been very effective in denying South Africa the opportunity to build partnerships, especially upfront. All of this places enormous pressure on South Africa's young stand-in captain Aiden Markram .

"It is getting bigger, and we are getting more resources", he said. "We're going through computers. We're going through online applications and different apps".

The Ministry of the Attorney General said McArthur's lawyer is Jeffery Couse. McArthur is due back in court on February 14.

On Jan. 29, McArthur was additionally charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of Majeed Kayhan, 58; Soroush Mahmudi, 50; and Dean Lisowick, 47, police said.

Kayhan was reported missing in 2012, Marmudi in 2015, Esen in April 2017 and Kinsman in June the same year. Police said Lisowick, who was in his mid-40s, was homeless, stayed in public shelters and had not been reported missing.

Once police are finished with the evidence so far, Idsigna said they will re-examine "literally hundreds" of missing persons cases in search of potential links to McArthur. Officers have been using a tent and large heaters to thaw the soil and are now set to dig several inches.

"We are dealing with some agencies overseas", Idsinga said.
