Bruce McArthur expected to be charged with seventh murder today

Toronto Police is all set to offer an update into the investigation of alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur.

McArthur appeared in court by video to face the new charge, which was laid in the death of Faizi, 42.

Clad in an orange jumpsuit, McArthur spoke only once during the appearance to say his name.

Idsinga said Faisi, who was 42 when he disappeared on December 29, 2010, was one of the three men whose disappearances were linked through Project Houston, a task force launched by Toronto police in 2012, to look into the disappearances of the three men from Toronto's Gay Village.

Abdulbasir Faizi is shown in a Toronto Police Service handout photo. She said his vehicle was discovered six days later just around the corner from a house where human remains were recovered in planters in midtown Toronto. Toronto police are expected to provide an update to the media at 1:30 p.m.

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

Mr. Faizi's auto was found early in 2011 on Moore Ave, not far from the property where Mr. McArthur stored his landscaping tools, and where a number of the bodies have been located. A Crown lawyer said outside court that the charge relates to the death of Abdulbasir Faizi, who disappeared shortly after Christmas more than seven years ago.

They have not specified how the victims were killed. The Guardian reports that after his disappearance, his family accessed his computer and discovered his trips to the Gay Village and his use of gay dating apps for larger and older men.

March 5, 2018 - Police say they've recovered the remains of a seventh person linked to McArthur.

The Mallory Crescent property has been ground zero for the investigation, with police forensic science teams going "inch by inch" through the apartment in search of clues and evidence, Idsinga said.

Idsinga said it's quite possible that the victim was not a resident of Toronto and that police were hoping to get tips to the man's identity from other countries as well.

Last month Homicide detectives released a photo of an eighth potential victim in an effort to identify the unknown man.

The relative said police initially believed Faizi had left on his own accord, resulting in his wife divorcing him as she believed he abandoned her and their two daughters.
