New murder charge announced against suspected Toronto serial killer

May 2016 - July 2017 - Police believe Dean Lisowick, 43 or 44, of no fixed address, was killed by McArthur during this time span. Toronto police have not yet released the location where the update will occur.

Police say there may be as many as 10 victims, but it's still unclear if any of the remains that are not Kinsman's belong to the other men McArthur is charged with murdering.

McArthur, 66, was initially charged on January 18 with the first-degree murders of Kinsman and Selim Esen, two men who disappeared from the Village between April and July 2017.

Det. -Sgt. Hank Idsinga said in a one-on-one interview with CBC's The National earlier this week that he would provide new details about the investigation.

McArthur is already facing first-degree murder in connection with the Kayhan's presumed death, as well as those of Selim Esen and Dean Lisowick.

The 66-year-old landscaper is now facing five counts of first-degree murder in connection with the deaths of Andrew Kinsman, Selim Esen, Majeed Kayhan, Soroush Mahmudi and Dean Lisowic but police have repeatedly said that they anticipate laying further charges in the case.

McArthur's next court appearance is scheduled for February 28. Officers have also been combing through McArthur's central Toronto apartment for a month and expect to remain there for weeks longer, he added.

Idsinga said while they wait on results from DNA analysis, police may return to 53 Mallory Cres. when weather conditions improve to use cadaver dogs, but more sites will be visited.

Police say McArthur is believed to be responsible for other deaths.

The case has evolved with police now looking at "hundreds of outstanding missing persons occurrences" and even "occurrences where there's been a sudden death".

Idsinga added that all the evidence unearthed so far indicates that McArthur acted alone in his alleged crimes.

McArthur appeared in court Friday via video link.
