McArthur facing 6th murder charge as cops identify more remains

Police identified the sixth suspected victim as Skandaraj Navaratnam, who disappeared in Toronto on Labour Day weekend in 2010.

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

Homicide Det. -Sgt. Hank Idsinga will update the media on the investigation into alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur Friday morning at Toronto police headquarters.

The 66-year-old McArthur is already facing murder charges in the deaths of Mahmudi and Kinsman.

Gucci models walk the runway carrying replicas of their own heads
Alessandro Michele had his models carry dragons, snakes, and even a head down the surgical-operating-room-inspired runway. A short list of things typically seen at Milan Fashion Week: celebrities, glamorous outfits and impeccably coifed models.

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

On 8 February, police say they found the remains of six people at the home of elderly residents who stored Mr McArthur's landscaping equipment in exchange for free lawn care.

McArthur, 66, was initially charged on January 18 with the first-degree murders of Kinsman and Selim Esen, two men who disappeared from the Village between April and July 2017.

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

Hornets to pursue Mitch Kupchak for front office role
Chairman Michael Jordan says that the next head of basketball operations will help the team be a "consistent victor on the court". Cho is now in the final year of his contract after the Hornets picked up his option for the 2017-18 season.

Work is underway to identify the three other sets of remains, Idsinga said, noting that police could be dealing with more victims not yet named in the list of charges. They say he was 43 or 44 years old and was never reported missing.

Police have interviewed some of McArthur's past known associates, but Idsinga said there is no reason to believe that the investigation now involves a hunt for other suspects.

Court documents also indicate McArthur was convicted of assault with a weapon for attacking a man with a metal pipe in 2001.

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. After an excavation of the backyard did not lead to further discovery of human remains, Idsinga said the police investigation of the property may not yet be complete.
