Alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur is now facing a seventh murder charge.

The latest murder charge is in connection with the death of 42-year-old Abdulbasir Faizi, one of three missing men whose disappearances were probed by Toronto police's special investigation, Project Houston. McArthur had already been charged with the first-degree murder of six other men who are believed to have died between 2010 and 2017.

The early afternoon news conference is to provide "substantial" new information about the investigation into the Toronto landscaper.

McArthur has been charged with killing the three men, as well as Selim Esen, 44, Majeed Kayhan, 58, and Dean Lisowick, 43 or 44.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, police suspect that McArthur was involved in the presumed death of a man who disappeared in 2013 while vacationing in Toronto.

Idsinga says the remains of alleged victim Majeed Kayhan have not been identified. "It didn't make sense that police had this theory that he ran away", she said. She said his vehicle was discovered six days later just around the corner from a house where human remains were recovered in planters in midtown Toronto.

Idsinga said police are now re-examining 15 cold cases dating back as far as 1975 in their investigation.

Idsinga said pathologists are working to identify the remains of at least one more person found on the property.

Idsinga said police plan to investigate 45 additional properties where McArthur is believed to have worked, bringing the total number of properties of interest to 75.

Idsinga said it's quite possible that the victim was not a resident of Toronto and that police were hoping to get tips to the man's identity from other countries as well. Sgt. Hank Idsinga says releasing the image is a "last resort" to find the man's identity.

He has been in custody since his arrest in January.

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.

The following year, McArthur is alleged to have killed Kinsman and Esen; police allege he killed Lisowick between April 2016 and March 2017. McArthur was questioned around the time Toronto police launched Project Houston, sources have told the Star.
