Eighth alleged victim identified in Bruce McArthur investigation

Majeed Kayhan 58

Remains of the eighth victim of alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur have now been identified.

The remains of seven men were recovered from planters at the same property earlier in the year, but police had struggled to find any connected to Majeed Kayhan, who disappeared in 2012.

Speaking to reporters at a news conference Friday morning, Det.

Police have searched about 100 properties linked to McArthur, but have only found human remains in and around the one central Toronto home.

Later that month, he was charged with the first-degree murders of Majeed Kayhan, Soroush Mahmudi, and Dean Lisowick.

On July 4, investigators returned to Mallory Crescent for nine days to do excavation work in a ravine behind the house.

The search yielded results quickly, police said, with trace of remains found mere hours into the dig.

"Although the examination and identification of remains continues, we do not have any evidence to suggest that Mr. McArthur is responsible for anything more than the eight murders to which he stands charged".

Idsinga previously said the new search was instigated by cadaver dogs, which indicated in May that more human remains may be buried at the property.

"It's important for the families for closure, for the victims themselves, and for the community.as a whole", he said.

"Obviously it's very hard for them". In February, he was also charged in the death of Skandaraj Navaratnam.

"They are very grateful, very thankful for the closure and they are very angry".

The current evidence in the case suggests there aren't any more alleged victims, Idsinga said, although investigators are still sifting through tips from Canada and overseas, and analyzing cold cases and missing persons' reports - including a "rash of murders" from the 1970s and 80s.

"There are a rash of murders from the 70s and 80s that remain unsolved. We are making progress on those cases but right now we have nothing to suggest that Mr. McArthur is linked to any of them", he said.

"I don't know if it stops at eight (victims)", Idsinga said.

While Idsinga would not say it explicitly, he strongly suggested Kayhan's remains were identified through the use of fingerprints and dental records.

"I'm still getting tips, internationally, from different countries by email".

Idsinga said the investigation is still far from over as police continue to sift through tips both from within Canada and overseas.
