Toronto police searching gardens for victims of alleged serial killer

Sgt. Hank Idsinga said at a news conference that the dismembered remains of at least three victims were found hidden in the bottom of large planters in the backyard of a Toronto home that McArthur, 66, used as storage for his landscaping business.

Idsinga said McArthur is known to have worked at 30 different properties within Toronto.

Police have not yet been able to confirm if all of the remains that were discovered belong to the victims who have been identified or belong to other unidentified victims. That seems odd now; media reports suggest that officers had been investigating Mr. McArthur for months at that point. They are also two unidentified sites the police plan to excavate.

May 2016 - July 2017 - Police believe Dean Lisowick, 47, of no fixed address, was killed by McArthur during this timespan.

Forensic investigators were observed at the Leaside property last Friday bringing in a flatbed truck with a military-grade tent on it, which has been set up at the back of the house on Mallory Crescent.

"We've never seen anything quite like this with the number of crime scenes that we have to process", Idsinga said.

Avery Bradley available in trade
Bradley is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer and could command an annual salary in the $20 million range. This comes way out of left field, with Griffin not having been a name floated in trade rumors yet this year.

McArthur is accused of killing Selim Esen, Andrew Kinsman, Majeed Kayhan, Soroush Marmudi and Dean Lisowick.

McArthur was previously charged with the murders of Selim Esen, 44, (left) and Andrew Kinsman, 49 (right).

The unfolding investigation into alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur grows more horrifying all the time.

"It encompasses more than the gay community. Public safety was always our top priority", Idsinga said.

"I'm shocked but I'm not surprised", Sgromo said. "It's an alleged serial killer".

McArthur's next court appearance is set for February 14.

Government 5G Network Unlikely, Despite Reports
The plan includes the government building a super-fast 5G wireless network, a senior administration official told Reuters . The best way to do this, the memo argues, is for the government to build a network itself.

Sgromo said he grabbed McArthur's elbow and ended the encounter.

"He has been doing superficial landscaping, he cuts the grass, and rakes the leaves in the fall", Liddle said.

Sooner or later, Toronto police will have to explain how an alleged serial killer was able to prowl Toronto for years while missing-persons posters spread across the Village. Police have contacted the owners of those properties and have searched the majority of them, but are encouraging others who may have employed him to contact investigators.

Kayhan, 58, had been among three missing men sought as part of the Toronto Police Service's Project Houston, which was launched in 2012.

Kinsman was last seen on June 26, 2017 near Parliament and Winchester streets and Esen was last seen on April 14, 2017 near Bloor and Yonge streets.

Idsinga also confirmed that McArthur was first identified as a suspect in September in connection with Kinsman's disappearance.
