Alleged Canadian serial killer charged with 8th murder

Toronto police to provide update on Bruce McArthur investigation Monday

66, was charged on Monday with the eighth count of first degree murder in the death of Kirushna Kumar Kanagaratnam, 37, BBC reported.

Hank Idsinga, a detective sergeant with Toronto Police's homicide division, said Kanagaratnam was killed between September 3 and December 14, 2015, and was 37 years old at the time.

Unlike the other victims, police have not found a connection between Kanagaratnam and Toronto's gay village, nor are they aware of any activity on gay dating apps.

Kanagaratnam, who arrived in Canada in 2010 from Sri Lanka and lived in Scarborough, had not been reported missing, according to police. In March, Idsinga had said that releasing the photo was a "last resort".

Idsinga said that Kanagaratnam was the man in the photo, but he declined to say how police came by the image.

In an interview from Paris, France, Kanagaratnam's surviving brother told CTV News that the family had assumed the refugee had become withdrawn, depressed about the war in Sri Lanka. Police plan to search them once the weather warms in early May. It was later identified as Kirushna Kumar Kanagaratnam, a man of Sri Lankan extraction.

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

Idsinga says Kanagaratnam's remains were found at a home McArthur used as storage for his landscaping business.

At a news conference this morning Homicide Detective Sergeant Hank Idsinga said the latest victim is a previously unknown male. But what does that mean to investigators? Idsinga said at the time that "artifacts" were removed from the photo.

Investigators said he was identified after they took the rare step of releasing photographs of his corpse and appealed to the public for help.

None of the allegations against McArthur have been proven in court.

To date, the remains of Majeed Kayhan have never been identified.

Police say he buried his victims' body parts in potted plants on properties where he worked as a self-employed landscaper.

Police are investigating unsolved murders that date back to 1975 which may be linked to the former landscaper.
