Suspected Toronto serial killer charged with 8th murder

Tom Hooper

Less than a week after he was charged with a seventh murder, alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur has been accused of killing an eighth victim.

The 66-year-old former landscaper is already facing seven charges of first-degree murder in the deaths of men linked to Toronto's gay community.

While Idsinga has an idea of how at least some of McArthur's alleged victims were killed, he said investigators have been unable to definitively determine the cause of death in each case.

"This does create basically a wide-open net", Idsinga said at a news conference.

Idsinga revealed few other details about Kanagaratnam other than to say he arrived in Canada from Sri Lanka in 2010, lived in the east Toronto suburb of Scarborough, and was never formally reported missing in Canada despite having distant relatives in the Greater Toronto Area. -Sgt. Hank Idsinga described as a "last resort" in hopes that a member of the public could identify the middle-aged bearded man to bring closure to his family and friends. But Idsinga confirmed last week the man may not be from Toronto, and said investigators had been following up with some global agencies in relation to the photo. He declined to say how the worldwide agency contributed to the investigation or how Toronto police came by the photo in the first place.

According to investigators, the seven men, who all had ties to Toronto's LGBTQ2S community, were murdered between 2010 and 2017.

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

"He doesn't quite fit the profile that we've seen before", said Idsinga. "But if we listen to these experts, we'd be looking for a brown-skinned, 35 year-old male". Half of those cases remain unsolved.

Police say McArthur targeted men he encountered through dating apps that cater to gay men, meeting them at bars in the Gay Village.

The first probe - named Project Houston - was launched in 2012 to investigate the disappearances of Faizi, Kayhan and Navaratnam. Police released the photo to the public in March and confirmed his identity last week.
