Report: Homosexual Serial Killer, Suspected of Killing at Least Five Men, Had Man Tied Up During Arrest

TORONTO — A suspected serial killer from Canada who was arrested last month and charged with the first-degree murder of five men with whom he had a sexual relationship allegedly had another man tied up at the time of his arrest, reports state.

Bruce McArthur, 66, of Toronto is accused of killing the men and hiding their remains in planters at various homes throughout the city where he did landscaping work. Police have found bones and body parts in the bottom of 12 planters so far as they are checking more than 30 properties for buried remains.

“There’s at least the remains of three people among those body parts,” Detective Sgt. Hank Idsinga outlined during a press conference on Monday.

McArthur was arrested on Jan. 18 in connection with two men—Selim Esen, 44, and Andrew Kinsman, 49—who went missing from the “Gay Village” section of the city in April and June. He has since been leveled with murder charges for three more men—Majeed Kayhan, 58, Soroush Mahmudi, 50, and Dean Lisowick, 47—two of whom have been missing for several years.

“We do believe there are more and I have no idea how many more there are going to be,” Idsinga said. “The City of Toronto has never seen anything like this.”

According to the Toronto Sun, investigators also found photographs of McArthur’s victims on his computer, which helped to identify them. It has additionally been reported that police found a man in restraints at McArthur’s apartment at the time of his arrest. The man as believed to have been at the location to have a sexual encounter with McArthur.

TIME and Heavy report that McArthur utilized homosexual dating apps, including one that describes itself as “a meeting place for mature men and other men (both daddies and younger), who are interested in keeping their daddy happy and/or sexually satisfied.” McArthur’s profile noted that he was interested in men 25-55, and stated in part, “so many nice looking guys out there, but so far away.”

Joseph Khaiata, who works at the Black Eagle Bar, told the Toronto Star that he was surprised that McArthur is suspected of the crimes.

“He was just a typical Joe person; that’s what shocked me when I saw the picture,” he said. “When you picture somebody doing something like that, that’s not what I would have pictured. I thought it was going to be a homophobe redneck from somewhere.”

Some had expressed fear after Esen and Kinsman were reported missing last year.

“The community, especially in the village, were very, very nervous, and rightly so. Two gay men went missing and the circumstances around their disappearances were very suspect and so people were speculating about what had happened to these two guys,” Helen Kennedy of the homosexual advocacy group Egale told the National Post.

McArthur’s next hearing is scheduled for Feb. 14. The Toronto Police Service is asking that anyone with information on the case contact them at 416-222-TIPS.

Jesus taught in Mark 7:20 that evil begins in the heart, as man’s nature without regeneration is inherently wicked.

“[F]rom within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride [and] foolishness,” He said. “All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.”

    Late last year, police found the bodies of nine victims (including 3 high school girls) in the townhouse of a Tokyo man.

    Also late last year, police apprehended a Tampa man who murdered 4 random people over the course of about a month.

    In October, a Washington woman was sentenced to 18 years in prison after attempting to murder a man she met on the internet. She had intended on cannibalizing him and becoming a serial killer.

    A South Carolina real estate agent convicted in 2017 of killing 7 people over the course of a decade claims that there are more victims.

      You’ll have to help me out here as to the point you are making please.

      I’m guessing that none of them were labelled “heterosexual serial killers” or preempting any “see the gays” type comment, but don’t want to make assumptions.

      I’ve never found your comments to be random, but usually the context is obvious because they are specific to the article or a comment.

        I’ve never found your comments to be random, but usually the context is obvious because they are specific to the article or a comment.

        My comment is extremely random and pointless. I agree.

        I don’t understand the reason for this “hey look, a gay person did something horrible” article when so many people in general do so many horrible things all of the time. It’s random.

        • james blue

          By that I would say there was a point to the randomness of the content of your comment.

        • Lexical Cannibal

          This is definitely at least somewhat equivalent to the “It’s not terrorism if he’s white” phenomenon. i.e. that a minority status singles this case out for public spectacle, even while several cases as severe or worse, but without a minority person attached, go unnoticed. Attacks by white supremacists are up about 100% from last year, but they grab headlines with about the same frequency as the people on your list do.

          Homosexuality is an impulse control disorder. Homosexuals are disproportionately represented in prisons.

        If you don’t like what we have to say feel free to leave us and go hunt up some atheist web site to blog on.

        • DrIndica

          Who said anything about being an atheist?

          • LynnRH

            Not as a target of their sanctimonious judgement. As in defense of the Word of God. You must just LOVE to argue or something cause I can’t imagine why you even want to be on a Christian website blog if you can’t stand what they stand for.

            Yes God made me female and i’m wearing it quite proudly. And when it comes to my faith in God there isn’t ANYONE able to shut me up. And it won’t be me that burns.

            It was nice that you were gone for 2 weeks. Notice the # of people you were following on DISQUS & insulting & threatening to dox has dropped from 260 to 181? People are aware of who & what you are. How long till your newest DISQUS account is again banned?

            Thank you……I think snowflakes are beautiful. Nutcase.

  • Greg

    Christians should be better than this…

  • Ben Welliver

    But of course, their REAL problem is the Christian bakery who won’t make them a cake.

    I mean, let’s get some perspective here, folks.

    • Michael C

      “You should accept being denied service at stores because some people were murdered in Canada.”

      Is that the your logic?

      • Ben Welliver

        “Is that the your logic?”

        Well, I’m logical enough to post a coherent sentence. Some people aren’t. I guess they’re either drugged or just addlebrained.

        • Michael C

          I apologize for making a mistake. My editor has the day off 😉
          Would you like to respond or should I retype the question for you, sans errors?

        • SFBruce

          Sometimes highly intelligent people make a minor mistake in their written communications. When that happens, others of at least average intelligence, can often still discern their meaning. I think Michael C asked an excellent question.

        • Topher Smith

          Your level of education?

          • *Independent-Free-Thinker*

            Stop trying to aggregate data to threaten & dox people.

            You are not the law student you claim to be. You are a ‘wanna be’ drag queen ballet dancer with severe mental health issues.

      • R Ed Ciruela

        They should be denied service because their behavior is despicable and their effect on our culture is toxic. A few were murdered in Canada because they were stupid.

    • Topher Smith

      Dropout. Dont know what logical fallacies are, huh?

  • DrIndica

    Jeffrey Dahmer’s protege?

  • Vince

    The guy was using a dating website for men looking for “their daddy”? Gee, do you think homosexuality might just be a mental illness? Dating your daddy? There’s a familiar twelve-letter obscenity for a man who is looking for his mommy. I don’t want to blame the victims of this creep, but when you enter the world of depravity, bad things are likely to happen. If you’re looking for a daddy or son to have sexual relations with, you’ve really jumped the track, morally and mentally.

    • Michael C

      McArthur’s victims ranged in age from 44 to 58.

      The President is 24 years older than the First Lady.

    • LynnRH

      Amen to that!

    • DrIndica

      Homosexuallity a mental illness? Even if it were shown to be that, wouldn’t a “Christian’s” response be to aid or offer compassion rather than self righteous vilification?

      • LynnRH

        He (Vince) DID say, “I don’t want to blame the victims of this creep” (and here’s the main point he was trying to get across) “but when you enter the world of depravity, bad things are likely to happen.”

        • DrIndica

          Men, all over the world, hook up for a fling and are not killed. I suspect you also think a woman in provacative clothing or topless in public shouldn’t be surprised if she is raped.

          • LynnRH

            To your last statement: Nope she shouldn’t be surprised.

            “men, all over the world hook up for a fling and are not killed.”

            That is true……but people do put themselves into more harms way when they allow themselves to be in a world of depravity.

          • DrIndica

            In civilized society, men don’t rape women based on their appearance. Rape is an action of violence not sex.

          • LynnRH

            Maybe in some people’s opinion. But not everybody’s opinion.

            This site doesn’t allow links, but if you go to youtube and type
            “v=51-hepLP8J4” into the search box (you can even just google “v=51-hepLP8J4”) the first result should be “What were you wearing? – Tracey Ullman’s Show: Season 2 Episode 6 Preview – BBC One”

            I think it is a good response to your opinion.

            It says “advisory-adult humor” but there’s nothing crude, it’s work safe.

          • LynnRH

            thanks, I’ll do that. 🙂

          • R Ed Ciruela

            They are the same. Scoring a woman is a conquest of one sort. Beating the sh*t out of an a**hole is another. Both are expressions of power and status. Both are sources of pride. If you’re a woman, I’ll tell you the truth outright: for most guys you’re a prize. The person part if an afterthought.

          • Topher Smith

            You need help.

          • LynnRH

            You are the one that needs help.

          • R Ed Ciruela

            You said it. We didn’t.

      • R Ed Ciruela

        A Christian’s response is what best serves the message of Christ. Homosexuals have made themselves our enemies and the enemies of Christ. We’ll offer compassion when they surrender and accept what they are.

    • Suaria

      It’s quite common also in the straight community for women to call men daddy. It is a fetish for some people. It isn’t exclusive to gay people.

      • Vince

        I don’t care if it’s common or not, desiring sex with one’s daddy is psychotic.

        • Topher Smith

          It isnt a desire for a father. How far did you get in school?

          • *Independent-Free-Thinker*

            Further than Chrissy The Sissy.

        • james blue

          I confess I’d not heard the context of the term before this article and comment section, but it does take a stretch to phrase it as you have.

          I don’t think it’s actually a “desire to have sex with their daddy” It appears to be just a term. Much like if you call your better half “baby”– it doesn’t mean you are a pedophile.

        • Suaria

          I don’t personally get it either why people call their significant others daddy. However I do not think the person is necessarily thinking about having sex with their dad when they call their SO daddy. My point was that straight people do the exact same thing.

    • Topher Smith

      You are clueless and poorly educated.
