TORONTO: Suspected Serial Killer Of Gay Men Charged With Three More Murders, Bodies Found In Planters

The Toronto Star reports:

Toronto police have announced three additional counts of first-degree murder have been laid against Bruce McArthur. Detective Sgt. Hank Idsinga told reporters Monday that McArthur is being charged with three additional counts of first-degree murder in relation to the deaths of Majeed Kayhan, Soroush Marmudi and Dean Lisowick.

Lisowick was never reported missing to police. Investigators believe he was murdered between May 2016 and July 2017. He would’ve been 47-years-old at the time of his death. Marmudi was 50-years-old when he was reported missing by his family in Scarborough.

Idsinga told reporters that the remains from “at least” three victims were found at the bottom of three large planters, which were located on properties linked to McArthur. Police have obtained over a dozen planters from around the city.

Police have identified 30 properties linked to McArthur, and “have conducted searches at the majority of them,” Idsinga said. Police believe there are more remains at some of these properties, and are actively working to uncover more.

Police say McArthur and the first two victims were active on multiple hook-up apps, but have not yet linked the murders to the apps.

VIDEO: Toronto police this morning held a press conference to announce the additional charges and the finding of the remains.

    He is eligible to run for senate as a republican in this country.

    • Reality.Bites

      You can’t go by Ted Cruz. In general Canadian criminals can’t run for office in the USA

      • Jefe5084

        I’m sure that among Trump and the most heinous of Republicans and Evangelical grifters, they will figure something out for meritorious service to god and family values. Maybe a new loophole will be created. /s

          Double secret mulligan.

      • Paula

        I know he is Canadian, killing the gayz would qualify him to be a senator from Kentucky.

    • Nowhereman

      Or at least be a paid consultant on Fox…

      • boatboy_srq

        And now we have one more reason for Democrats any sane person to appear on a Fauxnews show.

        • Bad Tom

          STAGE ASSISTANT: OK, You’re on in 5. You are perfectly safe with this host, you understand? Perfectly. Safe.
          GUEST: Thanks. That’s helpful.
          STAGE ASSISTANT: One word, though. If he offers you his business card, say you already have a landscaper.

    • You got it. He’s yours. Hopefully within a year prisons will be crowded with Republicans, so this guy won’t be lonely.

  • Tread

    FSM, that’s fucking scary.

    • Chris Baker

      I usually think, “I’m safe, who’s gonna kill a 50-year-old”, they usually kill young guys.
      Some black humor, but it’s what I thought.

  • JoeMyGod

    In the video the police chief is urging all customers of McArthur’s landscaping business to assist in the search that they believe will turn up even more bodies.

    • Bad Tom

      It would be dismaying as all fuck to realize you have a receipt from this dude.

      • #DJTK5F

        “Show me the receipts!”

    • boatboy_srq

      Lovely. So the list of potential crime scenes exponentially bigger thanks to this facet of McArthur’s spree.

    • Bj Lincoln

      Having the police digging up my yard to find a body would be stressful. Finding one would be worse.

      • Paula

        I don’t know, it would make a cool story to tell the grandkids.

        • mikemmiv

          Could you imagine someone call this in to have their yard turned over to save a few dollar on replanting the grass?

          • Paula

            That idea had occurred to me. Could anyone be that crass?

          • RoFaWh

            Yes.

            Trump, our perennial bete noire, is even more crass than that.

          • Rambie

            Yes, but hopefully none are Canadians

        “So THAT’S his secret!”

      • RoFaWh

        Something to keep in mind, ye armchair detectives: an adult human body is fairly bulky. It won’t fit in a hole dug for planting a single pansy; only in holes dug for fairly large trees and shrubs, plus the planters, which must be pretty big as such things go.

        OTOH, how many home owners pay much attention to what the gardening people are doing?

          • The_Wretched

            Orange is the New Black covered the issue. They dismembered an assassin who was killed prior to planting.

        • Chris Baker

          Just last night I watched a Perry Mason episode where a [spoiler alert!] body was buried for over a year in a planter in an office reception area. The murder was committed by a middle-aged woman which brings up questions of strength and decomposition.

    This is creepy as hell…

  • MT YVR

    Well that’s decidedly chill inducing.

    The part I’m curious about is… why? His motivation is probably be the thing that gives me nightmares, I’m betting.

    • Treant

      Or worse, he has no motivation at all other than, “Felt like it.”

      Those are the ones that really scare me.

      (tugs sleeve) I may joke about it, but I wouldn’t dream of killing anybody. Er…rephrase…I wouldn’t actually do it and bury the body in the garden.

      • Tread

        That’s ultimately the reason that Stephen Paddock shot up the Vegas concert. Because he “felt like it.”

        • Bad Tom

          I think you are right. No particular external motivation.

      • MT YVR

        It’s the “I felt like it” that creeps me out most.

        If there’s some strange random internal logic “Ok, so, you know how X is like this, well then Y is like that, so I had to do Z, which lead to me killing them. Duh.” ? I’m creeped out but in a milder way. Just the flat out “what? I felt like it.” thing freaks me out.

        Also? Being around people who write is unintentionally hilarious. Put out the question of “perfect murder” or “corpse disposal” and a LOT of them will have twenty minute long responses. DETAILED responses. 😛

        • Treant

          Even us kitchen chemists know how to get rid of a body. It’s really very easy when you have large sources of lye, urea, other nitrogen compounds, and plenty of nice bacteria-encouraging sugar and compost. Let me show you my workshop.

          I can also understand “I killed him because he was sleeping with my wife/husband.” The ones who get their jollies from killing people and don’t need a reason go beyond creepin’ me out. 🙂

          • MT YVR

            Lye is usually my go-to. It is soooo … effective. 😛

          • Treant

            And fast. And so readily available and untraceable. I can lay hands on 32 pounds for $32 on this week’s special from Essential Depot.

            I would, but I use about six pounds a year and it doesn’t store well for that long.

            Go to your room.

          • Treant

            I keep most of my chemistry and electronics supplies in my “room.” This is not a punishment.

    • Bad Tom

      With this many victims, with this sort of well thought out procedure for disposal of the remains, it was because:

      He liked doing it.

      And he thought he had perfected a method of getting away with it.

      And he had. Until he got caught.

      He just wasn’t as smart as he thought he was. Thankfully for the rest of us.

      • Tread

        But here’s the rub: there was an internet “sleuth” who brought up there could be a possible serial killer in Toronto. How do we know that this wasn’t him bragging about his crimes? I’ve read enough police procedurals to know that serial killers are first and foremost narcissists who want the recognition of their crimes.

        • Bad Tom

          Good morning, Mr Tread. Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to determine if this internet “sleuth” is in fact the same deadly MacArthur currently in custody.

          As always, should you or any of your Internet Detective Force be caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. Good luck, Mr. Tread.

          This post will pretty much stay around forever, no matter what anyone tries to do about it.

      • ColdCountry

        Torchwood Countrycide episode. Cannibals in Wales, once a year killing spree. Why? “It makes me happy.”

    • The_Wretched

      Serial killers are thankfully pretty darn rare. I don’t think they really get too much beyond “They feel like it”.

      • edrex

        i imagine a crazy ocd element is involved.

  • Nowhereman

    Wow. Just wow. I used to work in landscaping. Imagine digging up body parts while trying to plant shrubs or trees.

    • clay

      About 20 years ago, they needed to re-do the gas lines in Washington Square in Philadelphia (for the memorial to the unknown Revolutionary War soldier) after a tree, with effective roots, toppled in a storm. But Washington Square was a mass grave site for Hessian soldiers and for Yellow Fever epidemic victims, and some of the remains were shallow enough to be brought up by the backhoes. The construction workers were NOT amused.

  • The police were told that there was a serial killer loose in the Village many times over the past five years. An unconnected (I think) murder in the area was solved by the victim’s mother because the police wouldn’t do anything. At least some of the 5 known victims would probably still be alive if Toronto cops, you know, did their jobs.

    • clay

      This is the REAL danger of the “gay panic defense”– NOT what happens in the courtroom, but what happens BEFORE the courtroom; NOT what the killer claims, but what the investigators, judge, and prosecution just hand to the killer.

  • CanuckDon

    How horrible! In a recent chat with a friend in the Toronto area, we both shivered at the prospect of bodies being found in planters. It’s uncanny but my friend (older, married, closeted) knew McArthur when he was married 30 years ago. He knew that he produced expensive planters and pots and that got us on the lurid topic of bodies within them.

    • Tread

      The questions is, how long has he been doing this?

      • Boreal

        Probably for decades.

        • Treant

          After decades, there won’t be much of anything left of the body. In a well-watered, well-planted garden or large planter, even the smaller and weaker bones will go.

          (Although I’m sure a forensic scientist won’t have trouble identifying it if it’s there, it’s not like hip bones and skulls decay that fast).

          • Boreal

            I’m guessing he’ll confess to other murders and tell the police where he buried them

          • Treant

            Let’s hope, but he’s–by definition–crazypants. His reality may not intersect with the rest of ours enough to make that a logical thing to do.

          • Boreal

            My thought is there is a long trail of victims and bodies. He didn’t just start doing this.

          • Treant

            (gag) But yeah, you’re absolutely correct. We know or suspect four so far, don’t we?

            There are more. Probably for thirty years and more.

          • Boreal

            Scary as hell.

          • It depends on his MO. He took the effort to cover his tracks. He may want to keep that to himself to show how much smarter he is than the cops or something.

          • Treant

            Like I said, crazypants. 🙂

          • Christopher

            As a person, whose life is an abundance of melancholy, I say reality is overrated. 😉

          • Treant

            Try drugs.

            No, seriously, I’m on 150 mg of Effexor for clinical depression. Changed my life.

          • Christopher

            I’m a weed kind of guy. It works quite well for me, when I don’t run out. I hate this fucking state!

          • Lumpy Gaga

            I wanna know how you know that.

          • Treant

            I refuse to answer on the grounds… 🙂

            I’ve buried a pet fish and other very small pets in the gardens, as well as in potted plants indoors in winter, plus seen a deer decompose.

            It’s really not long until even the smaller bones are gone, and many of us compost or simply bury larger beef and animal bones if we have them. They’re an OK source of very slow calcium and even slower nitrogen.

          • Christopher

            Given your penchant for cool home hobbies, how hard would it be to grind up bones, turn them into powder, and mix them with clay to make pottery?

            I know, I know…

            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/998a2a6aee045e88d98c0aab9db1942b0ff6fe51370040daf30313cfa7ad2589.jpg

            But I was curious!

          • Treant

            http://www.itsallmeat.net/which-meat-grinder-can-grind-bones/

            There’s the top three bone grinders.

            Post that? Trivial. It can also be spread on gardens or lawns as bone meal, although it’ll disappear faster if you boil it for thirty minutes, dry it out, then spread it.

            Or just throw it in a cement mixer. They’ll take care of it for you. Theoretically you could take it as a calcium supplement, but I’d worry about disease propagation. Definitely bake thoroughly in the oven until the bone temperature rises over boiling for a minimum of an hour.

          • Christopher

            You’re a storehouse of useful information! THANKS!

            I, on the other hand, am a storehouse of useless information.

          • Treant

            Oh, so am I. I know that frangipani is another name for plumeria, and comes from the Italian merchant family that imported the plant to Italy.

            Yeah, that comes up often.

        • Tread

          Here’s the other question, has this guy always lived in Toronto? Did he live elsewhere?

      • Apparently, it’s extremely unlikely that a guy his age would just start killing people, so he probably had earlier periods of killings of unknown victims.

      • CanuckDon

        That’s the real concern. My hope is that, perhaps, this started after he came out….just so it stays within the last ten years or so. My married friend is absolutely floored by all of this. MacArthur was in two of his choirs that he directed plus both of MacArthur’s children were in his junior choirs.

  • e’ville_globeguy

    Amid the general horror of the whole thing, how sad is it that a 47yo can go missing without anyone to notice his absence?

    • Treant

      Hedviga Golik. 42 years, nobody missed her. They finally found her when they broke into her apartment (because nobody knew who was leasing it and for no other reason) and there she was. She’d sat in front of her television (some reports say in bed) for more than four decades.

      It happens a fair bit, actually.

      • Boreal

        Sounds like the Fox noise viewer demographic.

        • Treant

          Croatia, so not likely. 🙂 Digging around, she was just a sad old woman who nobody really knew or cared about.

          • Boreal

            Ah, I thought it was in the states. Poor thing.

          • Reality.Bites

            Enough about Todd Starnes already!

            Bitch. Have I told you lately that I love you?

          • Reality.Bites

            Yeah, but you were screaming a lot of things at the time. I couldn’t sort all of them out.

      • William

        Was her tv still on?

        • Reality.Bites

          Yeah, but they cut off her cable subscription.

            On the upside, she never heard of a Kardashian.

            There’s an old quote about the Gabor sisters, I wish I knew it exactly, and who said it,

        • Treant

          Most of the images of the portrayal have it so, but I don’t know. It’s creepier if it was, of course…the light of the TV flickering over a mummifying and decaying corpse for decades…

      • Reality.Bites

        Without twitter same thing would have happened to Trump.

        • Paula

          OT: The Feds are talking about nationalizing the 5G network. It is supposed to protect it from the Chinese. I am wondering if part of it is to give Trump his own Twitter to everyone’s phone. That was discussed for the Emergency Alert Network of the US.

          • William

            The good folks over at XDA Developers forum would quickly find a way to remove any Trump feed from Android phones.

      • IamSmartypants

        Was the TV still working? Because that would make for a hell of an ad about reliable performance.

    • Strepsi

      There are a lot of very lonely middle-aged gay men. They have no close blood family, they came out before it was acceptable and moved to the city, they’re too old to compete on the club circuit or too timid. They live in little single bachelor apartments in every major city. The whole thing is scary but more than that, sad.

      • e’ville_globeguy

        Yeah, I think I see that guy every morning in my bathroom mirror, minus the major city.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Perhaps he should share a jail cell with Jeffery Dahmer…………….
    Might not be his flavor, but then too………

    • The_Wretched

      Dahmer is dead. Has been for a while now (1994). Maybe you meant that ;p.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Tragically, sociopaths like this usually fly under the radar and in this case, it’s easy to see how. Take a good at him: white, older, grandfatherly in appearance. The sad truth is, he was able to use biases and preconceived notions to hide.

    “He looks like a grandpa or Santa, surely he’s not a killer.”

    Except, as those of us who have experienced violence first hand know, evil rarely appears as ugly or disfigured, but comes in a neat & clean package so as to lure you in.

    As to his motives, I could offer a couple off the top of my head, but what would it matter. It won’t bring back the dead. It won’t illuminate or reveal anything we don’t already know about sociopaths who do this. No, the only thing that can be done, for now, is:

    1 – Mourn the dead.
    2 – Have the police review their procedures regarding how they respond to concerns from vulnerable communities, because in this case, people weren’t being heard.
    3 – Educate people on the potential risks of hook up apps.

    Regarding number 3, in the “old” days when cruising for sex in a bar, I would always let the bartender or a friend know who I was leaving with; believe me, it made a difference. On two separate occasions I can remember, I did just that and suddenly the “trick” made an excuse as to why he suddenly had to be somewhere else: red flag went up and danger avoided. I’m not averse to hook up apps, but while hooking up is fun, a little caution isn’t uncalled for. Text a friend the who and the where, just in case.

    • IamSmartypants

      Always a good practice to let someone know when and where you are going off with a stranger. Some buddies and I have arranged to text a screen shot from our hook-up apps of the profile and meeting location when we meet up with someone new. I started doing this after a guy tried to roofie me at his house. I felt the drug hitting me after a sip of water and was lucky to get away before the full effect kicked in. I made it to my car, locked the door and passed out for about an hour.

  • Reality.Bites

    OT: The brother of thankfully dead Rob Ford is running for the leadership of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party.

    Imagine Trump without the brains or refinement. Still though, this is provincial politics, not a local city district which is the only place he’s ever been elected.

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      Yeah, the idea of Dougie Ford being leader of the PC’s is beyond repulsive. Still, given what just happened to Brown, I can’t see how the PC’s could consider Ford given his very real and public dalliances with drug dealing, etc. The whole Ford family are crooks and thugs.

      • Reality.Bites

        Yeah, but it’s all about signing up memberships.

        The idea of Caroline Mulroney is also absurd. I really hope Brown bought Wynne another term.

        • Jean-Marc in Canada

          While I have my issues with Wynne, you’re right, the PC’s are just too out there, much like the NDP under Horwath.

      • Hue-Man

        The Globe and Mail article is a classic worth saving.

        Doug Ford, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford’s brother, sold hashish for several years in the 1980s.
        Another brother, Randy, was also involved in the drug trade and was once charged in relation to a drug-related kidnapping.
        Their sister, Kathy, has been the victim of drug-related gun violence.

      • Bambino

        I was discussing with a friend last night about how she wish the ousting of Patrick Brown will return the PC to its formal self. I told her it’s unlikely. The old PC party ended with Brain Mulroney/Kim Campbell. What ever it is today is just a Reform Party wolves dress in PC sheep skin. The fact that they even float Doug Ford as the party leader says it all. Also the old PC and the Liberal Party are very much similar in their policies. Generally socially progressive and fiscal conservative. There isn’t room for both party to exist today without identity issue.

      He’s running against the “elites”!!

  • Boreal

    As I get older I can’t imagine using a hook up app (if I was single) too easy for this to happen. At least back in the day if you met a trick at a bar, there were people you knew there who would notice you leaving with someone.

    • gaycuckhubby

      It has its advantages and disadvantages.
      But I’ve never been one to just hook up.

    • Reality.Bites

      I met my boyfriend on grindr. Before I met him in person I knew his name, work history and virtually everything there was to know about him. This not only made me feel safe, but would also be aware if he’d lied to me about anything. He is so far out of my league I thought he might be a catfish.

      Normally I only would meet people for a coffee or dinner date. In his case, our first date was at my place. And within a couple of days we’d both taken down our grindr profiles.

      • gaycuckhubby

        Hook up apps are what you make of them. You can be safe and thoughtful and act like an adult of them. Or you can be Reckless

    • CanuckDon

      Unfortunately with the demise of our gay-centric social spaces, there’s not much choice for us single guys…younger or older…than online sites.

    • John MC

      It’s not like back in the day Patrick Kearney, Dahmer or Gacy were having trouble hooking up and disposing of bodies of people they met.

      • Boreal

        No one said they were, but when I left the bar with someone, my friends knew who that person was and could provide a description of them if something happened to me.

    • Lars Littlefield

      And gossiping about it for days.

      • Boreal

        Bingo, and questions. Were they good in bed? Did they have big dick? Are you going to see them again? Etc.

        Well its seems what isnt being talked bout in the media is that McCabe has been planing on retiring way before Drumpf even thought of running for office.

          I’d want out of the shit show too.

          Do 49 year olds normally retire?

          • Priya Lynn

            I retired at 35 but no , that’s not normal.

          • Reality.Bites

            55 here.

            Government retirees tend to retire from their public sector jobs at the age that they are eligible for government pensions. They can continue to work elsewhere and receive the pension on top of their private sector salary.

    This freak probably finally got caught cause his targets are no longer the same kind of vulnerable population as before.

    • Reality.Bites

      In Toronto a majority of the population is foreign born – and not from western countries with open gay communities.

      He preyed on younger men from visible minorities. In my experience as an older gay man, a larger percentage of such men are looking for men of exactly his type, compared to younger men who are Canadian born or white. This isn’t unique to Toronto, of course, but even compared to famously diverse New York city it’s considerably higher (52% vs. 37% born outside the country). And in our suburbs it’s MUCH higher.

      An awful lot of younger (under 40) gay men are here alone, or have families they’re not out to and never will be. Often the family is back home. Two of my younger friends are from Lebanon and Turkey, with families at home that will never know and might not be able to find them if they disappeared.

        I’ve been aware that some of these types do target the vulnerable even just for sex, that way. Seemed to come up a lot when I was doing a lot of work with low-income/destitute trans people years back.

      If the Toronto Police was looking at a profile of a serial killer, McAthur simply did not fit the profile by age alone. Hence my guess why it took so long to catch him.

      • Friday

        There apparently was the problem of not being looking for a serial killer at all for some time years ago. The profile’s usually about age of people *starting* this stuff, after all, anyway.

        • Reality.Bites

          Not to defend the police, but when bodies aren’t discovered, and the victims are lacking strong ties to a community, they tend to assume “oh, they just moved away”

          • Friday

            Not rushing to blame them either, not really knowing the story, but I do know that the local gay community was trying to get this attention paid to the cases for a while. Which it appears was done at eleast eventually.

    Gacy’s house had a crawlspace, not a basement. He buried the bodies in it.

  • The_Wretched

    I do but safe calls and references are a thing for me.

  • Ninja0980

    Have a feeling the body count will only get worse.
    Someone like this doesn’t just wake up in his early 60’s and decide to start killing people.
    This is something he has done for a long time.

    This all cuts so deep, but hearing that Dean Lisowick was never reported missing is really soul destroying

    • Lumpy Gaga

      So, a job is good for something.

    • leastyebejudged

      I saw that he was homeless and used the Toronto shelter system.

  • Gigi

    That anyone of any age could go missing and not be missed is truly heartbreaking.

  • BeaverTales

    We’re now up to 5 murders. Nobody knew that Lisowick had gone missing despite being a gay man with a Grindr profile? Sad that he was so Isolated that no one noticed he hadn’t come home….

    Scarborough. These are the same stomping grounds as the Homolka/Bernardo killers

  • Paul

    When he was arrested, the police found a young man tied to his bed. They had been watching McArthur closely and when they saw the young man enter the apartment, they decided it was time to act, so they beat down the door and rescued the terrified guy who could well have been the next victim.

    I met Gacy a few years before he got caught. He was remodeling a pharmacy near my house. Whenever I came I to the store and he was there he would just freeze and stare at me. I was 27 at the time but I looked younger. He scared the shut out of me. I was out of work at the time and desperate for money. If he hadn’t been so creepy and had offered me a job I might have taken it.
