Alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur is now facing a seventh premeditated murder charge while the investigative team is combing through cold cases from mid-1970s to late 1990s in search other potential cases connected to the 66-year-old Toronto landscaper, Toronto police said Wednesday.
The 66-year-old landscaper has been charged with the first-degree murder of six men with connections to the city's LGBTQ community.
McArthur is also charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of Skandaraj "Skanda" Navaratnam, Majeed Kayhan, Selim Esen, Andrew Kinsman, Soroush Mahmudi and Dean Lisowick.
The 2016 interaction was the second time police spoke with McArthur in the years before he was charged with murder.
He was seen leaving his workplace on Kitimat Rd., at about 7 p.m. on December 28, 2010, and his last known location was in the Church and Wellesley Sts. area.
Police previously seized planters from houses McArthur worked at from around Toronto but found no remains in those planters.

He said investigators haven't ruled out that the seventh set of remains recovered in the planters belong to Kayhan.

He said the majority of the cases involve gay men or victims with links to the gay village. "As of today our list has grown from 30 properties to 75". Forensics officers have continued to work at McArthur's apartment since his January arrest.
"We've quite frankly never seen anything like it", Idsinga said. "I think it's easily set the record for a forensic examination of an apartment".
