Bruce McArthur now charged with murders of six men: Toronto police

Police launch Project Houston to investigate the disappearance of three men from Toronto's gay village, including Navaratnam and Kayhan.

Mahmudi was last seen in Scarborough, and reported missing by his family in August 2015.

Investigators have said there are likely more victims but have "no idea" how many more.

The 66-year-old landscaper is now facing five counts of first-degree murder in connection with the deaths of Andrew Kinsman, Selim Esen, Majeed Kayhan, Soroush Mahmudi and Dean Lisowic but police have repeatedly said that they anticipate laying further charges in the case.

Police say there may be as many as 10 victims, but it's still unclear if any of the remains that are not Kinsman's belong to the other men McArthur is charged with murdering.

Police have only confirmed the identity of one of the victims, Andrew Kinsman.

Toronto Police have scheduled a news conference to update the media on the investigation into the 66-year-old self-employed landscaper and investigators wouldn't officially reveal any details on Thursday.

The case has evolved with police now looking at "hundreds of outstanding missing persons occurrences" and even "occurrences where there's been a sudden death".

McArthur has also been charged with first-degree murder in the presumed deaths of 44-year-old Selim Esen, Majeed Kayhan, 58, and Dean Lisowick, either 43 or 44. It is believed he was murdered between May 2016 and July 2017. This brings to six the number of charges of the capital crime now attributed to the former landscape contractor. He said he expects that in warmer weather, they will return to the property at 53 Mallory Crescent to look for further remains on or in the thawed ground.

Excavation at the Toronto home where McArthur stored items for his landscaping business - and where the planters were found - ended on February 14, and the home was released back to its owners. There are also "two or three" other properties linked to McArthur that Idsinga said he's "interested" in.
