  • Toronto gay serial killer

Police in Canada have begun a series of searches after a gardener was charged with the murders of five people and dismembering their bodies.

McArthur, 66, was arrested and charged January 18 in the presumed deaths of Selim Esen, 44, and Andrew Kinsman, 49, who police said went missing from Toronto's gay village last spring.

Bruce McArthur has been charged with first-degree murder of five men.

Mahmudi and Lisowick do not fit the profile of the victims identified as part of Project Houston or those of Andrew Kinsman and Selim Esen, whom McArthur is also charged with killing. Sgt. Hank Idsinga said at a news conference on Monday.

"We believe there are more remains at some of these properties that we are working to recover", Idsinga said.

Although McArthur didn't live at the Mallory house, he did landscaping work for the couple who lived at the property over the past eight years. "I have no idea how many more there are going to be", Idsinga said.

Police have said that investigators had found two planters with the skeletal remains of three individuals, but Det.

McArthur, Nash said, struck him as "a jolly-looking man, pleasant, courteous but seemed straight-laced", adding later that when he first met him, McArthur "could pass as straight".

Vanguard Group Inc. increased its stake in shares of Dr Pepper Snapple Group by 2.9% in the second quarter. The new company expects to deliver an annual dividend of 60 cents per share after the deal closes.

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.

Idsinga said Lisowick was an occupant of the shelter system who had not been reported missing. "It encompasses the City of Toronto", Idsinga said. "There are at least two sites that we do want to excavate where people might be buried".

They now say, however, they are investigating whether victims may have been targeted not only around the Gay Village, but in other communities and areas of the city. "It is unprecedented and draining".

He said McArthur took amyl nitrate, more commonly known as poppers, a drug that gives an intense temporary high. The woman, who asked not to be named, said she would often see McCarthur gardening or laying out plants in the driveway.

Idsinga said detectives are examining missing persons cases as far back as 2010 that may be connected to McArthur, though that scope of the investigation may expand.

Police found a young man tied up inside suspected serial killer Bruce McArthur's apartment on the day they burst in and arrested him, CTV News has learned.

Police had initially shut down persistent rumours that a serial killer was prowling the gay village, stressing that as recently as December, they did not know whether Esen's and Kinsman's disappearances were linked or if the men were still alive.
