Toronto police to provide update on Bruce McArthur investigation Monday

Alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur has been charged with an eighth count of first-degree murder.

To date, the remains of Majeed Kayhan have never been identified.

On Friday, police announced that they had identified a John Doe who was believed to be another alleged victim of McArthur.

Det. -Sgt. Hank Idsinga released a photo of a deceased man believed to have been killed by Bruce McArthur last month.

Since then, police said they received some 500 tips that yielded more than 70 possible identities. The identification of Kanagaratnam was confirmed with assistance from an global government agency, Idsinga said.

Idsinga said Kanagaratnam, who was identified with the help of an unnamed worldwide agency, was allegedly killed between September and December 2015.

At the time, police said this was a "last resort" to identify him.

McArthur, 66, is accused of killing seven other men, all of whom have ties to a downtown neighbourhood known as the gay village, but police said Kanagaratnam's death does not fit into the previously established pattern.

The 66-year-old landscaper is now facing seven first-degree murder charges for allegedly killing Andrew Kinsman, 49; Selim Esen, 44; Majeed Kayhan, 59; Soroush Mahmudi, 50; Dean Lisowick, 47; Skandaraj "Skanda" Navaratnam, 40, and Abdulbasir Faizi, 42.

Unlike the other victims, there is no prior evidence linking Kanagaratnam to Toronto's Gay Village, Idsinga said.

Victims in the alleged serial killer case are: Top row, from left to right, Skandaraj Navaratnam, 40, Andrew Kinsman, 49, Selim Esen, 44, and Abdulbasir Faizi, 44. Later that month, McArthur was charged with the murders of Majeed Kayhan, Soroush Mahmudi, and Dean Lisowick.

Investigators are expected to release more details, including the identity of the man and potential further criminal charges, during a news conference at Toronto police headquarters at 10:30 a.m. ET.
