Toronto Serial Killer Targeting Gay Men Now Charged With Five Murders—And There May Be More

Toronto Serial Killer Targeting Gay Men Now Charged With Five Murders—And There May Be More
Updated 4 months ago

Toronto landscaper Bruce McArthur, 66, who was charged with the murders of Selim Esen and Andrew Kinsman, has now been charged with three additional murders. His victims have been identified as Majeed Kayhan, Soroush Mahmudi, and Dean Lisowick.

Det. Sgt. Hank Idsinga said about the unprecedented case: 

We do believe there are more (victims). I have no idea how many more there are going to be. We’re investigating some 30 properties. We believe there are more remains at some of these properties that we’re working to recover.
We know that many in the community are struggling to understand and process these developments. It certainly encompasses more than the gay community. It encompasses the city of Toronto.

Initially police dismissed the rumors that a serial killer was stalking victims in Toronto's "gay village," but with the recent turn of events they are broadening the scope of the investigation. 

Idsinga added: 

Obviously, the city of Toronto has never seen anything like this. I’d call it an unprecedented type of investigation. It’s an alleged serial killer. He’s taken some steps to cover his tracks and we have to uncover these victims and identify these victims.

Canadians are reeling from the news as more information comes forward — and many are angry:

Did the police ignore warnings from people in the gay community?
