Discussion in 'Bruce McArthur, Toronto CANADA, 2010 – 2018' started by dotr, Apr 16, 2018.
I wonder where this new photo comes from? It looks like an ID photo to me. Taxi ID?
Det. Idsinga will be on CP 24 for interview shortly. Can someone please add a streaming link? Thank you

Please don't share previously released pic out of respect for victim/family/friends. New photo of Kirushna Kumar Kanagaratnam, positively ID'd in alleged serial killer investigation. #BruceMcArthur now charged with 8x 1st Degree Murder.

If he was a taxi driver in Canada and went missing wouldn't the employer have reported a missing person to the police?
Well he was in Canada for 5 years before he went missing. He must have been working somewhere. He is described "from Scarborough." He must have had friends and/or roommates. No one reported him missing. Maybe they thought he had to go back to Sri Lanka or move away for some reason.
Another picture of Mr. Kanagaratnam
I agree; it's all possible.
SPECULATION: If he was a conditional refugee and refugee claim was denied, possibly friends/people he knew in Canada thought he had left Canada.
The ID might also be a college/school ID.

OHIP, driver's license or passport photo, maybe?
One of BM's alleged victims also sometimes worked as a food delivery man, maybe this man did too and that was his photo ID for work?
Many Indian restaurants in/near the neighbourhood, fwiw, imo, speculation.
I would guess passport photo, since he must have had one to come to Canada, and it would be in both Canadian and Sri Lankan databases, to ensure they were linking to the same person's records.
That's right, or maybe pizza delivery. If related to the food business, could also be dishwasher.
I wonder if he was ever married, either in Sri-Lanka or here.
Did he have children in Sri-Lanka?
Did he live alone in Scarborough?
So many questions.
Great job of the TPS in identifying him.
Apparently Kanagaratnam is a common Tamil name https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanagaratnam. He came to Canada in 2010, the same year as a group arrived by boat off the West Coast, to a less than generous welcome, if people recall. I'm afraid he had a hard life, as well as a terrible death.
There is a link to the brother's FB page in the article.
The brothers FB page.

Looks like his brother posted the TPS info on his page and people already knew it was him. Other photos of Kirushna on there too.
