  • Serial killer in Toronto staged photos of victims, says prosecutor

McArthur pleaded guilty last week to eight counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of missing men with ties to Toronto's Church-Wellesley Village, the historic home of the city's LGBTQ communities.

He faces a potential sentence of life in prison with no chance for parole for 25 years or more when he is sentenced after this week.

Cantlon described the extensive collection of photographs McArthur kept of his victims - many of them taken while they were alive.

McArthur, 67, also shaved and stored the facial hair from his victims, Cantlon said. Lisowick was photographed unconscious on McArthur's bed.

Police narrowed a list of suspects for missing men from Toronto's Gay Village after seeing surveillance video of the last victim, Andrew Kinsman, enter a red Dodge Caravan in 2017. "Some lack stable housing". The Globe has previously reported that in 2016, Mr. McArthur was interviewed by police after a man said Mr. McArthur choked him during sex.

"He was a highly intelligent man - he was nearly unbeatable at scrabble", the friend said of the man who went by the name Skanda.

The murders took place between 2010 and 2017.

"John" is an immigrant and hasn't disclosed his sexuality to his family.

Investigators found McArthur had a USB drive that contained a directory with nine subfolders, Cantlon said, eight for the men he killed and the ninth for the man found at the time of McArthur's arrest.

He said police moved in when they realised McArthur had someone in his home.

On that occasion, McArthur asked John if anyone knew of their planned meeting.

Court heard that John told McArthur: "It was a secret and nobody knew". He said there is no evidence McArthur had murdered anyone else.

Murdered in Janurary, 2016, Kirushna Kanagaratnam, 37 - one of McArthur's eight victims - was facing deportation as a failed refugee claimant from Sri Lanka who came to Canada after his brother was killed in his homeland.

Cantlon said McArthur has shown some remorse by waiving his right to a preliminary hearing and pleading guilty to the charges.

John begged McArthur to remove it, but the killer refused. "When John was able to get the bag off of his head, Mr. McArthur attempted to tape John's mouth shut".

Canadian serial killer Bruce McArthur staged photos of some of his victims after they died, posing corpses in fur coats and cigars in their mouths, a prosecutor has told a court.

Court will also hear a more fulsome agreed statement of facts about the murders once the victim impact statements are heard. Days before, investigators had even surreptitiously searched McArthur's apartment for evidence. Police questioned and released McArthur - a move that later prompted the Toronto Police professional standards unit to launch an internal investigation into the matter.

The arrest happened the year before the disappearances of McArthur's final two victims, Selim Esen and Andrew Kinsman. In addition to Kinsman, they are Selim Esen, Abdulbasir Faizi, Kirushna Kumar Kanagaratnam, Majeed Kayhan, Dean Lisowick, Soroush Mahmudi and Skandaraj Navaratnam.

The fur coat seen in multiple images of dead victims was also found in the room.

The man escaped and called police.

Neither police not Gridin would comment on the exact nature of the charges, which relate to Gauthier's role in an incident in which McArthur was arrested but not charged.
