    More Charges Against Alleged Serial Killer

    By Ron Fanfair, Toronto Police Service Published: 11:33 a.m. January 29, 2018

    Bruce McArthur has been charged with another three counts of First-Degree Murder, after police recovered the dismembered remains of at least three people from the backyard of a Leaside residence.


    The remains have not been identified.

    The body parts were allegedly found in large planters at the rear of the property on Mallory Crescent.

    The 66-year-old self-employed landscaper was arrested and charged on January 18 with the deaths of Selim Essen and Andrew Kinsman earlier in the year.

    Esen, 44, of no fixed address, was reported missing by a friend on April 20, 2017. He consistently frequented the Church & Wellesley St. area and Kensington Market and often had a small plastic suitcase on wheels similar to a carry-on bag.

    He was last definitively seen on March 20, 2017, even though there have been reports that he was also observed by a member of the community as late as April 14.

    Kinsman, 49, was reported missing by a neighbour on June 28, 2017. Kinsman, known to be active on social media, was last seen in the area of his residence on Winchester St. on June 26.

    At a news conference at police headquarters on January 29, Detective Sergeant Hank Idsinga said police believe MacArthur is responsible for the deaths of 58-year-old Majeed Kayhan, reported missing since October 2012, 50-year-old Soroush Marmudi, reported missing in August 2015, and 47-year-old Dean Lisowick, who was not reported missing.


    He said Kayhan was one of the men whose disappearance was investigated by Project Houston, which ran from November 2012 to April 2014. That project identified three missing persons – Kayhan, Skanda Navaratnam and Abdulbasir Faizi – from the Gay Village.

    Marmudi was reported missing in Scarborough by his family, while Lisowick was never reported missing.

    “We believe that he was murdered between May 2016 and July 2017,” said Idsinga.

    He said investigators continue to search McArthur’s residence at 95 Thorncliffe Park, and a residence at 53 Mallory, which McArthur used for storage for his landscaping work.

    Assistance from outside agencies, including the Ontario Provincial Police, the province’s forensic pathology services and the Centre of Forensic Sciences is being utilized to search these premises,” Idsinga said.

    He’s encouraging anyone who employed McArthur as a landscaper at their residence, and has not talked to police, to contact investigators at 416-808-2021.

    “I would ask that you contact us as soon as possible so that we can make arrangements to search your yards and gardens,” he said. “I thank all of these homeowners for their ongoing co-operation and wish to assure them that we will respect their privacy.

    Investigators have identified about 30 properties within Toronto where McArthur worked.

    “We believe there are more remains at some of these properties that we are working to recover,” Idsinga added. “…We have seized quite a few planters from around the city and we will continue to do that. There are at least two sites that we do want to excavate where people might be buried.”

    People wishing to provide information can do so by calling 416-808-2021. They can also call anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS or 222tips.com.

    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. A heater was also brought into the tent.

    Police sources said the equipment was being used to warm up the ground for digging.

    McArthur’s next court appearance is set for Feb. 14.

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

    “We do believe there are more, and I have no idea how many more there are going to be,” Idsinga said. “We’ll lay more charges as we get them.”


    Idsinga said the murders do not all fit a clear pattern, as not all of them are Middle Eastern or members of Toronto’s gay community.

    “It certainly encompasses more than the gay community – it encompasses the city of Toronto,” he said.

    Police are now looking at disappearances from at least as far back as 2010.

    Kayhan was one of three missing men who was never found as part of Project Houston. Skandaraj Navaratnam, 40, and Abdulbasir Faizi, 42, were also sought as part of the investigation, and have not been found.

    Hey folks. First and foremost I want to say my deepest condolences to everyone affected by this. Family, friends, loved ones of the victims. Unassuming neighbors, friends, or clients of BM. Sleuthers, the general public and greater community of Toronto and The Village.

    I've been tied up in meetings this morning, unable to focus knowing that this presser was coming at 10:30 AM. I haven't had a chance to watch it from beginning to end myself yet, as I cannot find a private environment and forgot my headphones at home. I will watch it tonight, but until then, can someone clarify for me that:

    1. BM has been charged with first degree murder of Soroush Marmudi (2015), Dean Lisowick (2016/2017), and Majeed Kayhan (2012)
    2. Remains have been found from Mallory Crescent of a least three men, but they are at this point unidentified
    3. The remains of the men listed today have not yet been found or identified
    4. Evidence from a week and a half ago lead to the conclusion that BM was responsible for the deaths of the three men listed today

    Thanks in advance and I wish I didn't have to adult today. Also, my heart is broken.

    Grey-St I have been thinking of the list of missing men that you (I think it was you!) made a week or so ago! It would be great if you could post it again tonight, when you get home!

    My heart goes out to everyone who has in any way been affected by these horrible events. All of us! imo,
    All the murdered and missing men's families, friends and communities- but also to the parents who with love and trust, placed their dear children on the lap of this monster, posed as Santa.
