Toronto police to provide update on McArthur investigation

McArthur now faces five first-degree murder charges stemming from the disappearances of men linked to Toronto's LGBTQ community.

Though police expect to find more victims beyond the human remains in the planters, they say the entire investigation process could "go in to the years".

Mahmudi was last seen in Scarborough, and reported missing by his family in August 2015.

Toronto police charged alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur with a sixth first-degree murder on Friday after identifying the skeletal remains of a man missing from Toronto's Gay Village since 2010.

Police have only confirmed the identity of one of the victims, Andrew Kinsman.

Meanwhile, police are now investigating what they believe is a murder scene in McArthur's apartment on the 19th floor of his building at 95 Thorncliffe Park Dr.

Det. -Sgt. Hank Idsinga will be holding a news conference at police headquarters at 10:45 a.m.

Police investigated his death as part of Project Houston, which ran from November 2012 to April 2014 and probed the disappearances of three men who went missing from Toronto's gay village.

Police believe Lisowick, of no fixed address, was killed sometime between May 2016 and July 2017.

News of the additional charges comes two weeks after police revealed that they recovered the remains of six people, including Kinsman, in large planters at a Leaside home connected to McArthur.

Police are also reviewing "multiple outstanding" murders, unexplained "sudden death" cases, and "hundreds of outstanding missing persons cases" going back decades for possible links to McArthur, he said.

Police excavated a drain in front of a house linked to McArthur on February 13 and have been searching other properties linked to him.

He said police have also identified at least two properties for potential excavation, but said forensic test results are needed before they can proceed.
