Toronto police said Thursday they've recovered the remains of at least six people from planters on a property connected to alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur, the AP reports. Lead investigator Det. St. Hank Idsinga said the remains, found on property McArthur used as storage in exchange for doing the landscaping, included some from one of the five men McArthur is already charged with killing, Andrew Kinsman. McArthur was arrested Jan. 18 and charged with two counts of murder in connection with the disappearances of Kinsman and Selim Esen, two men last seen in the "Gay Village" district of Toronto. Not long after that, he was charged with the murders of three more men and police said they were on a wide search for other possible victims. Idsinga said police expect to lay more charges.
Authorities have checked at least 30 other places where the landscaper was known to have worked. Police have said they expect to find more remains in the planters they've retrieved from around the city. Idsinga said they have about 15 planters now. Investigators are also starting to excavate part of the lawn at the home where the new remains were found. Idsinga said investigators finished searching inside the house and the garage and said the occupants of the home are free to return, but can't go into the backyard. He said police have thought about excavating a second property, but said it might depend on what they find in that backyard. Investigators have not yet released complete details, but the 66-year-old McArthur is believed to have met his victims cruising around the city in the van he used for work and on gay dating apps for older and large men.
