Toronto Police have given an update on Bruce McArthur, the man responsible for the disappearance of men in the Church and Wellesley area at a press conference today.
Det.-Sgt. Hank Idsinga has confirmed that the 66-year-old Toronto landscaper is now facing three additional counts of first-degree murder, bringing the total to five.
Police have reason to believe McArthur killed Majeed Kayhan, 58, of Toronto, Soroush Mahmudi, 50, of Toronto, and Dean Lisowick, 47, of no fixed address.
During the police’s investigation, dismembered skeletal remains of at least three people were found hidden in the bottom of large planters in gardens where McArthur worked.
Idsinga told reporters that the police are continuing to search properties associated with McArthur and they have identified approximately 30 properties where the self-employed landscaper may have worked.
Police are asking anyone who received landscaping services from McArthur to contact police if they have not been contacted already.
