Multiple Toronto murders being investigated in alleged serial killer case


A 66-year-old Toronto man has been arrested in a multiple-murder case that police worry could be the largest in the city’s history.

Bruce McArthur was arrested earlier this month, and was initially charged with killing two men who had disappeared from Toronto’s gay village.

On Monday, three more first-degree murder chargers were added against the self-employed landscaper.

The dismembered skeletal remains of at least three people were found at the bottom of planter boxes at a home McArthur apparently worked on.

Police believe there are more victims to be found, and are searching gardens and planters at approximately 30 locations around Toronto where McArthur worked.
