Sgt. Hank Idsinga announced Monday that three more first-degree murder charges had been laid against him.

"We do believe there are more (victims)", Idsinga said.

We have even more information about the Toronto killer whose victim list keeps getting bigger.

Police revealed that all five of the known victims were of a Middle Eastern background with links to the area of Church and Wellesley, Toronto's gay village.

Fears of a possible serial killer targeting men in Toronto's Gay Village had circulated in the community for months, but Toronto police Chief Mark Saunders said in December that there was no evidence to support that theory.

Police recovered the dismembered remains of three individuals, which McArthur hid in the bottom of large planters located in the backyard of a home that he seemingly used for storage, according to WABC-TV.

Sources have told the Toronto Sun McArthur was taken into custody after cops kicked down the door of his 19th-floor Thorncliffe Park apartment because they were concerned for the well-being of a "young man" inside - a man who was allegedly found tied up on a bed.

"So we've seized quite a few planters from around the city and we'll continue to do that".

On Monday, Toronto police said that McArthur has been charged with first degree murder in the deaths of Majeed Kayhan, Soroush Marmudi and Dean Lisowick, along with the deaths of Andrew Kinsman and Selim Esen.

Members of the LGBTQ community were pushing for answers last year in light of the disappearances of 44-year-old Esen and 49-year-old Kinsman.

McArthur worked on about 30 properties that now have to be searched in case any more bodies are waiting to be found.

"By then McArthur was at the very least a person of interest... whether he was under electronic surveillance or constant surveillance by that point, we're not sure yet". By Monday, police said they were dealing with a serial killer unlike any Toronto had seen before.

He was also indicted Monday in the deaths of Majeed Kayhan, 58, who went missing in 2012; Sorousk Mahmudi, 50, whose disappearance was reported nearly three years ago; and 47-year-old Dean Lisowick, who was homeless and was believed to have been murdered in 2016 or 2017. "They're also really good at covering their tracks so some of this intelligence also translates into the methods they use to hide evidence, to stay off the radar of police".

Mahmudi was reported missing from Scarborough by his family in 2015.

"I have seen large scale investigations before with dozens and dozens of officers working on them".

After leaving a bar, Sgromo said they kissed before McArthur led him to the back of his empty van where they started to undress.

The investigation "certainly encompasses more than the gay community".
