Police say they've identified the remains of three people believed to be victims of alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur.

Kayhan's remains have not been identified thus far, Idsinga said.

But the 66-year-old seemed a shell of his former self as he appeared via video in a College Park courtroom on Wednesday to have a seventh count of first-degree murder officially laid against him. He's accused of preying on men in the LGBTQ community who hung out in the downtown Gay Village.

Toronto police uncovered seven sets of remains there in total, but so far have only identified those belonging to Andrew Kinsman, Soroush Mahmudi and Skandaraj Navaratnam, the Toronto Star reported.

Idsinga said the sprawling investigation is now scrutinizing 15 unsolved homicides that took place between 1975 and 1997.

The 44-year-old Brampton man vanished in December 2010 and his vehicle was later found on Moore Ave - near Mount Pleasant Rd. and St. Clair Ave. E.

McArthur has been charged with killing the three men, as well as Selim Esen, 44, Majeed Kayhan, 58, and Dean Lisowick, 43 or 44.

And, on Wednesday, Crown attorney Michael Cantlon confirmed the accused serial killer now faces yet another first-degree murder charge for the death of Abdulbasir Faizi.


In March, police also released a photo of a dead man believed to be another victim.

Police also have evidence that leads them to believe that Lisowick was killed in April of 2016, he said. McArthur has already been charged in the deaths of the other two men, Majeed Kayhan and Skandaraj Navaratnam, included in the Project Houston probe.

McArthur is facing murder charges related to their deaths.

The remains of six victims were found in planters at a Mallory Crescent home in Toronto.

Idsinga said it's quite possible that the victim was not a resident of Toronto and that police were hoping to get tips to the man's identity from other countries as well.

Forensics officers have continued to work at McArthur's apartment since his January arrest. "I think it's easily set the record for a forensic examination of an apartment". They went missing between 2010 and 2017.

Idsinga said Faisi, who was 42 when he disappeared on December 29, 2010, was one of the three men whose disappearances were linked through Project Houston, a task force launched by Toronto police in 2012, to look into the disappearances of the three men from Toronto's Gay Village.
