Human remains found near home of accused serial killer

Human remains have been found at a property linked to alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur.  The remains were discovered in a ravine in Toronto, behind the home used by McArthur to store equipment for his landscaping company.

ABC News reports that, with the help of a K-9 unit, the remains were discovered in dense ground cover and have been sent for further forensic testing.  Police have searched more than 100 properties linked to the man’s landscaping business and expect to spend another week searching the ravine for more evidence.  The new remains are the first outside of the Leaside area where the original discoveries were made.

Det Sgt, Hank Idsinga said “we haven’t identified what the remains are or who they belong to,” but police are looking into fifteen more missing persons cases after the first seven bodies were uncovered earlier this year in planters on properties linked to McArthur according to CNN.

So far the bodies that have been identified are Selim Esen, Andrew Kinsman, Skandaraj Navaratnam, Soroush Mahmudi,  Abdulbasir Faizi, Dean Lisowick, Majeed Kayhan  and Kirushna Kumar Kanagaratnam.  It is believed that the alleged killer met his victims on a dating app.

McArthur is facing eight charges of murder, but with this new discovery that could change.  He is next scheduled to appear in court on July 23.
