Murder charge laid in disappearances of men from Toronto's Gay Village

Murder charge laid in disappearances of men from Toronto's Gay Village

A 66-year-old landscaper has been charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of two men who were reported missing last year from the downtown Toronto area.

Hank Idsinga said Bruce McArthur, who works as a self-employed landscape designer was arrested at 10:25 a.m. this morning after significant progress was made in the investigation into the Village disappearances on Wednesday.

"We are aware of the other missing men from the village, and we're trying to identify whether they have become victim to Mr. McArthur as well", Idsinga said.

"In policing, what we do is we follow the evidence and what I said at the time ... was accurate at that time", Chief Mark Saunders told reporters at Thursday's news conference.

Amid fears over the summer that police weren't taking these cases seriously, Richmond said the investigation into Kinsman's disappearance was in the process of "ramping up", and police were getting set to conduct another search of his apartment. Asked if he knew the cause of death of the men, Idsinga said that while the bodies have not yet been found, "we have a pretty good idea of what the cause of death is".

By October, investigators said they'd received over 150 leads and interviewed two dozen people, but were unable to find any link between the disappearances of both men. And, while police have yet to locate any bodies, investigators believe there are more victims. He may also be the rumored Toronto serial killer responsible for the disappearances of six other men. Esen hasn't been seen since April 15.

Investigators searched four properties in Toronto and one in Madoc, Ont., about 220 kilometres away, in connection with the investigation. "Clearly there is some information that is leading them to believe that there are more victims out there, or they wouldn't have said that".

The investigation also involved searching through information from Project Houston, an unconnected investigation looking into the disappearances of three other men from the same area, dating back to 2010.

The initial reports of both men's disappearances prompted a great deal of concern from residents of Church-Wellesley Village.

Police have called both missing persons cases as suspicious.

"We aren't able at this time to identify those victims".

Police say all three of the missing men share a similar ethnicity and lifestyle and were active in the Church and Wellesley community.

In December, police warned people to be careful using dating apps.
