Toronto police find remains of 6 people in Bruce McArthur case

Forensic anthropologist professor Kathy Gruspier second from left walks with police officers at a property where alleged serial killer Bruce Mc Arthur worked Thursday Feb. 8 2018 in Toronto. Toronto police say they've recovered the remains of at least

More charges are expected in the future for an alleged Toronto serial killer who police say hid the dismembered remains of several people in the bottom of large flower planters.

McArthur is now facing five counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Kinsman, Selim Esen, Majeed Kayhan, Soroush Mahmudi and Dean Lisowick.

Police say there are likely more victims but they have "no idea" how many more. "I don't have a timetable for that, I don't have a number for that but I do expect that more charges will eventually be laid". He said he believed there was more than one location where the landscaper allegedly killed his victims. In addition to the property on Mallory Crescent, authorities are searching a property in Toronto's Thorncliffe Park neighborhood.

Police have identified more than 30 properties where McArthur worked. Idsinga said they have about 15 planters now, but he declined to say where they are in examining them.

Investigators are now preparing to dig up the backyard at 53 Mallory Cres., and have been heating the frozen ground, Idsinga said. Police confirmed on Thursday that some of the remains retrieved from the residential property were Kinsman's. Investigators believe that McArthur, 66, used dating apps for older gay men to lure his victims. In his SilverDaddies profile, McArthur described himself as 5 feet 10 inches tall and 221 pounds and primarily interested in younger men.

"I can't get into which parts were found where, but they were all within planters that were recovered", he said. Beyond those apps, he maintained an active social media presence and reportedly posted Facebook photos of himself dressed as a mall Santa.

"It's going to be a very, very extensive investigation", he said.

"I've got officers who are trying to contact them and we have no issue with them going back into their houses", he said. "We went into the apartment on Wednesday night".

ABC News could not immediately reach an attorney for McArthur for comment. He has yet to enter a plea.

He was further charged in late January in the deaths of two missing men - 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. Police said Lisowick, who was in his mid-40s, was homeless, stayed in public shelters and had not been reported missing. Kinsman was reported missing last June, while Esen was reported missing months earlier, in April, according to police. They urged his past clients to come forward.
