The news conference where Toronto Police will be giving out the details of the investigation has been scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Hours before that Bruce McArthur will be appearing in a Toronto court by video.

McArthur was also charged in the death of Skandaraj Navaratnam in February.

It also comes one month after police took the rare step of releasing a photograph of a deceased man who investigators alleged was a victim of McArthur's.

Police also released a forensic sketch of a man believed to be a victim of Mcarthur's, and said they're still trying to identify him.


Police officers suggested he had just left, the relative said. Sgt. Hank Idsinga said they have now identified three more as belonging to Selim Esen, Dean Lisowick, and Abdulbasir Faizi. They say he targeted men he met through dating apps that cater to gay men, meeting them at bars in the Gay Village area of Toronto, as well as male prostitutes.

His vehicle, a 2002 Nissan Sentra, was found abandoned on Moore Ave., near St. Clair Ave. and Mount Pleasant Rd. - a short drive from where McArthur worked as a landscaper.

The investigative team is now reviewing 15 homicide cold cases from 1975 to 1997, he said. The two middle-aged men were reported missing in 2017.

In the wake of escalating questions about the investigations into the disappearances of the missing people from Toronto's Gay Village, the Toronto police board voted unanimously last month to commission an external investigation into how the force conducts missing-persons probes. McArthur popped up on the police radar in the fall of 2017 as part of Project Prism.


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.
