A year after his arrest sent shock and anger through Toronto, Bruce McArthur on Tuesday morning admitted to killing eight men from 2010 to 2017.

The self-employed landscaper was arrested in January 2018, after years of speculation within Toronto's Gay Village that a group of men who had gone missing from the neighbourhood were somehow connected.

From then on, McArthur, a stocky, bearded man who had worked part time as a mall Santa, was referred to as an alleged serial killer. The case has been covered around the world.

Ultimately, McArthur was charged in the deaths of Selim Esen, Andrew Kinsman, Majeed Kayhan, Dean Lisowick, Soroush Mahmudi, Skandaraj Navaratnam, Abdulbasir Faizi and Kirushna Kanagaratnam.

On Tuesday, he pleaded guilty to all eight counts of first-degree murder.

Appearing before Justice John McMahon in Superior Court, McArthur looked gaunt, with his beard and head shaved. As the name of each of his eight victims was read out, he replied "guilty" in a quiet voice.

Michael Cantlon, a lawyer for the Crown, revealed some details of the killings, telling the court that each murder included planning and deliberation, and that six were sexual in nature.

He said that during a search of McArthur's bedroom, police found a bag containing duct tape, a surgical glove, rope and zip ties.

Canton also said McArthur "staged" some of his victims after they were murdered and kept some of their items as souvenirs, including jewelry.

According to the Crown, sentencing will start this coming Monday, when more details of the case will be revealed.

She did work at a group home at one point so the perp could be an ex-client. Could be a low functioning person like the case we had in Camrose a few years back.

This one is also very bothersome and similar has happened before. If he got out and walked he would have been seen; so who was he seen by that caused him to vanish?

This so reminds me of a case in Grande Prairie but that was quite a number of years ago. That case was attributed to possibly Clifford Olson.

Great idea,GSAR_Mbr and it looks good. Perhaps that will also give people the incentive to find out what was happening in those areas when the persons went missing ... what was going on besides every day normal living. Like constructions crews going through, persons out of jail etc.

I hope someone here can help you. I'm not here that much because I tend to aggravate people with my bluntness. So presently I am working on stolen and missing dogs, cattle etc.   


Police are asking the public for tips after a pickup truck belonging to a missing 20-year-old man was discovered north of Grande Cache, Alta., without its driver.

According to the RCMP, Tommy Lance Harrington “was last believed to have been with his pickup” on Cinch Road, about 70 kilometres north of Grande Cache, at about 9 p.m. Saturday.

On Monday, police said the truck was found “stuck at that location” and “within sight of Highway 40.” It is not known if Harrington was picked up by someone in the area and he has not been in contact with anyone, police said.

“There is a general concern for Tommy’s safety and well-being,” the RCMP said. “If you have seen Tommy or have any information on his whereabouts, please contact the Grande Cache RCMP.”

Harrington is about five-foot-eight and 145 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes and was last seen wearing jeans and a blue hoodie.

Anyone with information about Harrington’s whereabouts can contact the Grande Cache RCMP detachment at 780-827-3344. Tips can also be anonymously submitted to Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 or online.

The RCMP in Devon have issued a missing persons report for 25-year-old Kathleen Rose Ferraz-Duchesneau.

On Sunday at 11:10 p.m., police said Ferraz-Duchesneau’s vehicle was seen parked and running in the median between the north and southbound lanes of Highway 60, just south of the Devon Bridge.

Her family has not heard from her since that time and is actively coordinating search efforts in and around the river, according to her sister, Alexandra Ferraz.

Ferraz-Duchesneau is described as being 5’5″ and weighing 240 lbs. She has green eyes, blonde/brown hair and may have been wearing glasses.

RCMP say the missing woman may be wearing a purple jacket with white fur around the hood, as well as blue jeans.

Officers are concerned about her safety and well-being.

If you have seen Ferraz-Duchesneau or have any information on her whereabouts, you are asked to contact the Devon RCMP at 780-987-3414 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Iirc, the witness was a man who worked for Caissie in Alberta and he claimed Caissie was working with him the whole time that Carol was being victimized.


A judge has found Joseph “David” Caissie guilty of first-degree murder in the 2011 killing of Carol King near Herschel, Sask.

Justice Richard Danyliuk delivered his verdict Friday in a Saskatoon courtroom, while King’s family listened in from the east coast.

King, who was originally from Newfoundland, went missing from her home near Herschel on Aug. 6, 2011.

Her car was recovered by RCMP on Aug. 10 and three weeks later, her remains were discovered in a wooded area roughly six kilometres away.

Caissie was arrested and charged in 2016 after a five-month long Mr. Big sting operation in which he told undercover officers he killed King.

The murder confessions were ruled admissible at trial by Danyliuk on Oct. 18, 2018, which was a key factor in his decision.

“I have examined the set of confessions itself to see if it has markers of reliability,” Danyliuk said.

Danyliuk said the confessions were “highly reliable,” repeated several times, consistent, and “highly significant.”

The lone defence witness who testified Caissie was in Alberta at the time the killing took place was “utterly discredited during cross-examination,” Danyliuk said.

A first-degree murder conviction carries an automatic life sentence with no chance of parole for 25 years.

More to come

So sad for the family but at least they know now. Media must have been pressing for info on possible "gang" related activity to which police said they are not elaborating and are looking at many avenues.
The sketch shows a tough person indeed.   I believe they have more than they are letting on and will also have more interviews now.
This crime looks to be solvable, imo.

I'm not saying this is related to Honey and Barry Sherman ... but similar in that this man was working on getting drugs cheaper for Americans.

YW EWO. :)

From the link I posted above:

Crown prosecutor Ken McCaffrey consented to defence lawyer Balfour Der’s application for judicial interim release for Dauphinais.

McCaffrey said there were “issues” to resolve in connection with the Crown’s case, such as a Mr. Big operation and the fact the case involves circumstantial evidence.

The elephant in the room ... Mr. Big. Sounds like this is going to be a tough one.

James Baxter, Nov. 6, 1988: Stabbed in the chest at his Sarnia apartment, died in hospital. Two people were subsequently arrested, but a judge at a preliminary hearing determined there wasn’t enough evidence to send them to trial.

On November 6, 1988, Mr. James Baxter was stabbed to death as he lay in his bed in his Canterbury Court home in the City of Sarnia. This brutal homicide remains unsolved, and as you may know, the police never “close the books” on unsolved homicides.

Do you know who killed Jim Baxter? Do you have information you believe may be helpful to the police in this case?

If you have information about the death of Jim Baxter, call the Sarnia Police Detective’s office, or, if anonymity is important to you call Crime Stoppers. If you call Crime Stoppers, you remain anonymous and will never have to testify in court.


 If you have any information about any serious crimes in Sarnia Lambton, call Crime Stoppers.  If your information leads to an arrest, you may receive a cash reward.  You do not have to reveal your identity or appear in court. Crime Stoppers does not use Caller Display or Call Trace.  Sarnia Lambton Crime Stoppers can be reached at 332- 8477, or toll free at 1-800-222-8477.
