Alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur is now facing a seventh murder charge.

Det. Sgt. Hank Idsinga said the 66-year-old self-employed landscaper is now facing a total of seven first-degree murder charges related to the deaths of men with ties to Toronto's LGBTQ community.

The early afternoon news conference is to provide "substantial" new information about the investigation into the Toronto landscaper.

Police found the remains of seven men hidden in large garden planters at a midtown home where McArthur stored his landscaping equipment.

Bruce McArthur has been charged with the first-degree murder of Abdulbasir Faizi. He worked as an assistant machine operator at a now defunct, printing company in Mississauga. "It didn't make sense that police had this theory that he ran away", she said. In addition to the cold cases, police have also increased the number of properties on their list to search from 30 to 75.

McArthur was already charged in Navaratnam and Kayhan's murders.

He is also accused of killing Selim Esen, Andrew Kinsman, Soroush Mahmudi and Dean Lisowick.

Toronto police said a week they're on the lookout for any connections between McArthur plus also a set of grisly, unsolved murders in the 1970 s.

Idsinga said investigators needed to identify the man so they could pursue "possibles" with hopes that DNA or dental records would match up with found remains. Sources close to the victims say Selim Esen, who disappeared in the spring of 2017, is among those who have been positively identified by investigators. At Wednesday, authorities were hoping to identify a few of this human remains located in plantations in a Toronto property McArthur employed as storage because of his landscaping firm, as stated by the Associated Press. A photo of the man was originally released in March and police say they have received more than 500 tips.

In January, McArthur was arrested and charged with the murders of Esen and Kinsman.

In the wake of escalating questions about the investigations into the disappearances of the missing people from Toronto's Gay Village, the Toronto police board voted unanimously last month to commission an external investigation into how the force conducts missing-persons probes.
