Police in Toronto, Canada, have charged alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur with an eighth count of first-degree murder after identifying another set of remains.

February 8, 2018 _ Police say they've recovered the remains of six people from planters at a house where McArthur worked as a landscaper, and say they expect more charges.

Mr. Kanagaratnam, who was 37 when he is believed to have been killed, did not have direct family in Canada and had not been reported missing, Det. In March, Idsinga had said that releasing the photo was a "last resort".

Toronto police Detective Sgt. Hank Idsinga said Monday the 66-year-old landscaper has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Kirushna Kumar Kanagaratnam. Idsinga wouldn't say how police obtained the photo.

The murder of Kirushna Kumar Kanagaratnam has now been added to the growing list of charges against Toronto resident McArthur. The body of the 8th victim has never been found. He said the victims in those cases matched the general profile of the first seven men McArthur is accused of killing.

Toronto police have scheduled a press conference for 10:30 a.m.to update their investigation.

Mr. McArthur was already charged with the first-degree murders of Skandaraj Navaratnam, Abdulbasir Faizi, Majeed Kayhan, Soroush Mahmudi, Dean Lisowick, Selim Esen and Andrew Kinsman. A statement from the Toronto Police Department said the remains of Kayhan have not been identified.

An external review to be launched later this month will look into the way in which Toronto police investigated the missing men reports. "When we were in Sri Lanka, we feel our lives were gone so that's why we came to Canada - to save our lives". McArthur came to the police's attention in the fall of 2017 as part of that probe. Kinsman was a subject of Project Prism, and police have said he had a sexual relationship with McArthur. The photo, which seems to be of a deceased man, was found on McArthur's computer during the police investigation.

Many of McArthur's alleged victims were the subjects of two previous police probes into the disappearances of men from the city's gay village.
