Old Bruce McArthur Interview Sparks Internal Toronto Police Probe

Serial killer discovery

Toronto police recover remains of a seventh person linked to alleged serial killer, authorities say

The human remains, discovered in planters on a property connected to McArthur, were all dismembered body parts in various stages of decomposition, Idsinga said.

The sources stressed it had nothing to do with the missing men, but they said Idsinga and his team didn't know about the McArthur interview until some time after they arrested him on January 18, 2018 when they charged him with two counts of first-degree murder.

Det. -Sgt. Hank Idsinga says the man in the photo has not been identified yet, but police have received numerous tips since Monday. Late a year ago, Toronto police assured the community that there was no known link between the different missing person cases.

Toronto Police are asking the public for help in identifying a deceased man, left, who is believed to be another victim of "alleged serial killer" Bruce McArthur.

Police have said the man was dead when the picture was taken, but won't say when or how they obtained the image.

In February, investigators charged McArthur in the disappearance of Skandaraj "Skanda" Navaratnam, 40.

Police have said the investigation into McArthur could last years, and that they are tracing the former landscaper's whereabouts as far back as they can go.

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

Finally, he said that the review should look at "national and worldwide best practices" with respect to missing persons investigations and make recommendations on how the TPS can better respond to those cases.

Police began investigating the disappearances in 2012, but the force has been criticized for dismissing the community's concerns about a possible serial killer.

In a statement issued on Wednesday afternoon, TPS board member Shelly Carroll said that while she does support an external review, she does not want a timeline attached to it as the "ongoing police investigation must be the first priority".

He also said that he will ask the province to consider holding a public inquiry at the conclusion of the criminal proceedings against McArthur.

The Toronto Star, citing similar sources, said the interview happened between the closure of Project Houston in 2014 and the beginning of another investigation in 2017 that resulted in McArthur's arrest.

At the time, police said they had no evidence of foul play in the Project Houston investigation, which also looked into the disappearances of Kayhan and Abdulbasir Faizi, 44, whose case remains unsolved.

"It's January 17 where we find some evidence that not only are Andrew Kinsman and Selim Esen dead and murdered, but that Bruce McArthur is a suspect in those murders".
