Accused Toronto serial killer Bruce McArthur has been charged with a seventh count of first-degree murder, as police announced that the remains of three of his alleged victims have now been identified. While he said there is no current evidence linking McArthur to the cold cases, they fit the general profile of the alleged victims identified to date.

McArthur appeared by video in a Toronto courtroom this morning where the new charge was announced but no victim name was immediately provided.

Mr. McArthur has already been charged with the first-degree murder of six other men who have connections to the city's LGBTQ community.

Police had earlier recovered the remains of at least seven people from planters found at a home in midtown Toronto where McArthur worked and stored equipment.

The remains of Andrew Kinsman, Soroush Mahmudi and Skandaraj Navaratnam had previously been identified, Idsinga said. It closed after 18 months as it did not establish the whereabouts of the missing men or resolve the circumstances on their disappearances, police said.

His vehicle was found abandoned not far from McArthur's home.

And, on Wednesday, Crown attorney Michael Cantlon confirmed the accused serial killer now faces yet another first-degree murder charge for the death of Abdulbasir Faizi.

The 2016 interaction was the second time police spoke with McArthur in the years before he was charged with murder. They say he targeted men he met through dating apps that cater to gay men, meeting them at bars in the Gay Village area of Toronto, as well as male prostitutes. They initially released a photo of the man last month and are working on tips they have received from the public. Police have also executed at least two search warrants, including one for a forensic search of McArthur's apartment on Thorncliffe Park Drive, in the city's northeast.

No more remains have been found, but police are set to provide more information about those that have been uncovered.

"We've quite frankly never seen anything like it", Idsinga said.

A police officer carries containers outside a house on Mallory Crescent in Toronto, where Bruce McArthur did landscape work, on Monday, January 29, 2018. "I think it's easily set the record for a forensic examination of an apartment".

Idsinga said Faisi, who was 42 when he disappeared on December 29, 2010, was one of the three men whose disappearances were linked through Project Houston, a task force launched by Toronto police in 2012, to look into the disappearances of the three men from Toronto's Gay Village.
