Bruce McArthur's alleged victims. "It encompasses more than just the gay community", he said.

"Our LGBTQ liaison officer and the service's LGBTQ community consultative committee are available to anyone who requires support".

"We do believe there are more (victims)". "People have this belief that they're all like that". He was reported missing in October 2012. "That's obviously something we have to look at". The disappearances of some of the men reach back to 2012 and police are investigating other disappearances as early as 2010. He was already charged with the murders of Andrew Kinsman and Selim Esen. According to the Toronto Star, as punishment, he wasn't permitted into the village area, and couldn't spend time with "male prostitutes".

January 29, 2018 - McArthur is charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of Mahmudi, Kayhan and Lisowick.

Marmudi was reported missing in Scarborough by his family, while Lisowick was never reported missing. At their news conference, police said he may have been alive as late of July, 2017.

"Instead of locating victims through the job, he locates his victims through other means, including online, and then he uses the pretext of his job to essentially hide remains", Arntfield said. On Monday, police added three more charges of first-degree murder, bringing the tally to five.
