Police news event to update serial killings investigation


"I do not want to release this picture and I'm doing so as a last resort", Idsinga said.

In a press conference Monday, Toronto Police Detective Hank Idsinga released a photograph of an unidentified deceased male and asked for anyone with information about his identity to come forward.

But the circumstances behind the oddly angled full-face photo of a bearded man with his eyes partially closed were unclear.

"If anyone knew before us, it's people who knew [McArthur] very, very well", Saunders told The Globe and Mail.

The one exception is Navaratnam (police charged McArthur with his murder after his remains were identified).

Idsinga said there was evidence pointing to a cause of death in at least some of the cases, but wouldn't elaborate.

Investigators have searched multiple properties in the Toronto area, including excavating the backyard at the home where the seven sets of remains were found.

He acknowledged being exhausted coming off the West Coast Swing, but posted his lowest career round at PGA National on Thursday. The difficulty was the wind, which blew hard not just in the morning but also the afternoon. "It's a strong test out there".

Det. Sgt. Hank Idsinga said investigators believe the man was dead when the picture was taken, but refused to say when or how they obtained the photograph.

McArthur is also charged with the murders of Majeed Kayhan, 58, Dean Lisowick, 47, and Selim Esen, 44.

Meanwhile, sources have told the Toronto Sun that the probe has expanded to include missing men, cold cases and unidentified bodies in other jurisdictions.

"Steps are ongoing in an attempt to identify these victims", he said.

Investigators have identified three sets of remains so far - 49-year-old Andrew Kinsman, 50-year-old Soroush Mahmudi and 40-year-old Skandaraj Navaratnam.

McArthur, a 66-year-old self-employed landscaper, has been charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of six men who had disappeared from or had ties to Toronto's gay village.

Idsinga said police are still investigating the case and looking for more possible victims, including in cold cases.

Floridians this fall will choose a new governor, as term-limited Republican Rick Scott is expected to turn to the U.S. Our country faces a disproportionate amount of gun violence and gun-related fatalities compared to other nations.

Investigators have not yet released complete details, but McArthur is believed to have met his alleged victims in the "Gay Village" area of Toronto and on gay dating apps for older and large men with names such as "SilverDaddies" and 'Bear411'.

He added that the profile of McArthur's alleged victims "changed over recent years".

The 66-year-old landscaper is now facing six first-degree murder charges in relation to men who disappeared from Toronto's gay village or had ties to the city's LGBTQ community. Now Toronto is reeling from allegations that McArthur systematically targeted men in the community.

McArthur is due back in court on March 14.

According to local media, police made a quick decision to enter McArthur's flat and arrest him on January 18 when they saw a young man enter his home.

And on the accused serial killer's computers, photos of his suspected victims were discovered on the hard drive.
