No more human remains found at Leaside home in McArthur case

No more human remains found at Leaside home in McArthur case

Toronto police removed another two planters from a property linked to alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur before announcing that an excavation of the backyard did not turn up any more human remains.

"We are doing so to search for any evidence that may further the investigation", Gray said in an email to CBC Toronto.

The digging for potential evidence started late Tuesday afternoon. Those factors, in combination with the frozen ground, may lead police to conducting secondary searches so they can be more thorough, spokesperson Meaghan Gray said.

Police said last week that Kinsman's remains along with the remains of five other individuals were found in large planters at a Leaside property where McArthur stored items for his landscaping business.

"We are focusing now on identifying the remains that we have located", Idsinga told The Canadian Press, adding none of the other properties identified so far will replace the Mallory Crescent home as the primary investigation site.

McArthur was charged on January 18 with 49-year-old Kinsman's death, as well as the presumed death of 44-year-old Selim Esen.

Suspect wounded, vehicle stopped after shooting at US NSA gate in Maryland
In 2015, two men dressed as women tried to ram a stolen vehicle through the gate of the NSA headquarters at Fort Meade. Local fire and police departments had said earlier on Twitter they were responding to a possible shooting incident.

"We still have properties that we are searching, that long client list of Mr. McArthur's that we are making our way through", Gray said.

Police have found the remains of at least six people in planters on the property.

Police laid three more first-degree murder charges against McArthur about two weeks later, related to the disappearances of Majeed Kayhan, 58, and Soroush Mahmudi, 50, as well as the death of Dean Lisowick, either 43 or 44, who had never been reported missing.

Authorities said one of those bodies has been positively identified as that of 49-year-old Andrew Kinsman, who went missing in June 2017. Edward Royle, a lawyer for McArthur, has declined comment on the case, which is due back in court on Wednesday.

Police said they will eventually look at hundreds of missing person cases and try to determine if they were victims of McArthur.

Idsinga also said last week that police have identified a second property that they plan to excavate, but would not say where it is.
