Alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur charged with murdering Sri Lankan man

Alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur charged with murdering Sri Lankan man

"He doesn't quite fit the profile that we've seen before", Idsinga explained.

"This does create basically a wide-open net", Idsinga said at a news conference.

"I won't speak to the specific mechanisms we used to identify him", Idsinga said.

He said Mr Kanagaratnam arrived from Sri Lanka in 2010 and was not on file as having gone missing in Canada.

Toronto Police released a picture of the unknown male last month and were later able to identify him through an global agency.

Police in Toronto have faced criticism in the city's LGBT community, who question why it took so long for authorities to ascertain a serial killer had been preying on gay men. Idsinga said the man's identification was confirmed by an worldwide government agency but would not go into specifics about what outside channels police were using in their investigation.

"The identification was confirmed with the assistance from an worldwide government agency", said Idsinga, though he would not provide further details.

The murder of Kirushna Kumar Kanagaratnam has now been added to the growing list of charges against Toronto resident McArthur.

Tesla's chief said the company suffered because of the robots
Tesla, Inc . (NASDAQ: TSLA ) is on recovery track with 22.79% gain from a 1-year low price of $244.59. The stock was sold at an average price of $354.58, for a total transaction of $284,018.58.

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

January 18, 2018 _ McArthur is arrested and charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of Esen and Kinsman.

Kanagaratnam's remains were identified as being among at least seven bodies found in large planters at a property where McArthur, a landscaper, stored equipment. In March, Idsinga had said that releasing the photo was a "last resort". He would have been 37 years old at the time of his death.

Idsinga has previously said that investigators are examining 15 unsolved homicides that took place between 1975 and 1997.

"It's far too early to say whether the cases themselves are linked or Mr. McArthur is linked to any of them". Police have said he was never reported missing and unlike McArthur's other alleged victims, Kanagaratnam had no clear ties to the LGBTQ community.

August 2017 _ Police launch Project Prism to investigate the disappearances of Esen and Kinsman. McArthur came to the police's attention in the fall of 2017 as part of that probe.

Toronto Police are still working on the massive case, so it's possible Bruce McArthur may be charged with more crimes as evidence continues to surface. The alleged serial killer made an appearance in court today via video to hear the newest charge brought against him by police.
