Canadian alleged serial killer facing 8th murder charge

Toronto-area landscaper Bruce Mc Arthur has been charged with killing Selim Esen 44 Skandaraj

Accused serial killer Bruce McArthur has been charged with an eighth count of first-degree murder, with Toronto police saying an global agency helped them identify the new victim.

Idsinga said Kanagaratnam, who was identified with the help of an unnamed global agency, was allegedly killed between September and December 2015.

Idsinga said more remains might be found in the planters at the home McArthur used as storage and that 75 properties linked to the landscaper are under investigation. Kanagaratnam wasn't reported missing in Canada or in Sri Lanka, Idsinga said, and there is no evidence linking him to the Gay Village in Toronto.

Police at the time also announced they are now investigating 15 cold cases between 1975 and 1997 - a period when 14 gay men were killed in Toronto's downtown after leaving bars popular in the LGBT community.

Investigators said he was identified after they took the rare step of releasing photographs of his corpse and appealed to the public for help.

"The identification was confirmed with the assistance from an global government agency", said Idsinga, though he would not provide further details.

Canadian alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur is now facing an eighth murder charge.

The first two alleged victims were identified in January as Andrew Kinsman, 49, and Selim Esen, 44, who both went missing in 2017.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention declared that outbreak - its source was not identified in the US - over in January. The CDC continues to warn consumers against eating romaine lettuce from Yuma, Arizona that may be tainted with E.coli O157:H7.

Kirushna Kumar Kanagaratnam, 37, was killed between Sept 3, 2015 and December 14, 2015 police said Monday in announcing the new first-degree murder charge against the 66-year-old former landscaper.

Idsinga said investigators confirmed his identity with the help of an "international agency" but wouldn't expand on that.

Later that month, he was charged with the first-degree murder of Majeed Kayhan, Soroush Mahmudi, and Dean Lisowick.

Kanagaratnam was among at least seven bodies which were found at a home in Toronto where McArthur stored some of his landscaping equipment. "We've had lots of worldwide calls since our pleas began from people who just haven't seen family members in years".

"He doesn't quite fit the profile that we've seen before", said Idsinga.

The remains of all but Kayhan have been identified.

Unlike the other victims, police have not found a connection between Kanagaratnam and Toronto's gay village, nor are they aware of any activity on gay dating apps. He had no direct family in Canada and was never reported missing.
