"Involved in Andrew kinsman disappearance. That's how it was initially. And then he becomes a suspect in the murder, and also there are these men who disappeared from the village and their disappearances have never been solved. In this causes us. Concern. So it's being the c conduct strongly. They're being put together. Right. I think what has upset many people in the community from what I'm hearing from my sources, is that there was some kind of element of gas lighting that was going on, because there had been you know, this year's long concern that men had been going missing and people were saying the word serial killer that to have the chief of police say that there wasn't there wasn't the evidence to back that up and then only a few weeks later. Sure enough. That's what they had on their hands. That has been destabilizing I think to, to too many people, you can see though. How how quickly it evolved from having Bruce, MacArthur be a suspect in intricate. Kinsman skilling to suddenly being a serial killer. We know that, that actually happened in the course of a day. Tell me about the rest of that day. Then once they find the photos. What happens? So the decision is made to arrest MacArthur, but to preserve the integrity of a major case like this, they have to do everything possible to make sure that Abbott's is not lost. It's important to remember that at this time they didn't know if Bruce MacArthur was acting alone. So there were people that they thought might be helping him. They had no evidence I should stress it no evidence of that. But they, they didn't have evidence to the contrary, either. So they had to make sure that police were in place, and that, that warrants were in the in the process, you know before the courts to be able to search certain addresses that included the Mallory crescent address where we know sadly know that Bruce, had had kept some of his victim's bodies, all of us victim's bodies. So they knew that they needed some time to get that in place, two or three days. So that. Vision is made we're going to arrest him. I believe it was on a Saturday. And I think it was a Wednesday and, you know, give or take a few days in there, and so they decided we're going to watch him, you know, round the clock and get everything in place. But there's a caveat and caveat is from the images, they've found they know that, that it's very likely that Bruce, MacArthur killed one person or more in his bedroom or in his apartment and prior to that the theory had been that Andrew kinsman had been killed in his van. And so police have ways to intervene and, and have far more control when the scene of a crime per se is of the Ecole they don't have that control when it's an apartment when someone's own residence. So the rule the caveat was under no circumstances can Bruce MacArthur, be alone in his home with another man. And sure enough. What does he do lesson? Twenty four hours later. He takes a man back to his apartment alone. And then what happens well, everything the way that I understand. It was it was sort of controlled chaos. The decision is made to arrest. Macarthur immediately. There are already some officers at MacArthur apartment building. Dave Dickenson the primary investigator goes to the scene very quickly and they go up his apartment, and they arrest him and what's really quite tragic, and remarkable is that the individual who he had in his apartment. The core core documents had identified him by a student, John and John had been handcuffed and was naked and black bay had been put over his head. And that's when police went into the apartment they found him handcuffed and Justice McMahon, who was the judge on this case said in, in basically no uncertain terms that he was sure that John was going to be the next victim. So. So it was it was really good that they intervened. What did some of the police officers that you talked to in the course of this investigation? Tell you it was like to work on something like that. That was stale for so long. And then finished so quickly and furiously what I know is that they are really pleased at that they could bring some finality to the families who had been wondering for so long, you know, in that point can't be overstated. These people didn't know what happened to their loved ones. That's different from having your relative be the victim of violent crime. And so to have number one, the uncertainty of what happened. And then, number two finally finding out what happened in having it be so horrific. Those are two different kinds of grief as I understand it. And so, at least to bring an end to the suffering of not knowing I think that has been really big for, for the police that I have heard from. I think it's important to know that there is an ongoing review right now done by former Ontario court of appeal Justice Gloria up Stein. How do the police feel about that? They talk to you about that at all. This was this was officially endorsed by the Toronto. Police chief Saunders has supported this and it's trying to police services board who unanimously passed, basically the for this altogether to be perfectly honest with you. I think that they actually support it because it's going to come out with some recommendations about how did you things better? And everyone can can get behind that. I think. Thanks, wendy.

"It likely won't shock you when I tell you the police don't like to talk about their investigations. In fact, you can ask any reporter and I used to be one for the phrase, they hear most from the cops and the answer will always be. We can't comment on an ongoing investigation, but investigations and, and trials happen and verdict surrendered, and then documents are made public lots of documents. And so if you have the right documents and you ask the right questions of the right cops, you can get inside the most complicated of cases like the task force that caught Bruce MacArthur, who pleaded guilty in February two, killing eight men, over seven years. One of Canada's most horrific cases of serial murder Toronto police faced a lot of criticism over how they handled that case, both for how long it took them to investigate the men going missing and the gay village and for famously insisting just a month before MacArthur was caught that the fact that there is a serial killer that was out there. The evidence does not point to that the evidence does not suggest that. You can judge for yourself, whether the cops were doing their best on a complicated case or gas lighting a community that had little reason to trust them our job, here is not to prove or deny that criticism, but to give you an inside look at what police new and when and how those critical pieces were put together. I'm Jordan eighth Rawlings. And this is the big story, Wendy Gillis is the crime reporter at the Toronto Star. She got those documents and asked those coughs the right questions and put together a comprehensive look at what went on while police were chasing a serial killer. Can you start by explaining what we're learning now about MacArthur investigation that we kind of didn't know when we covered the crimes, or when we covered the guilty plea? Absolutely. What we're learning through some of these documents that came out a couple of weeks ago, are some of the finer, details of this investigation for me the story all started, obviously with MacArthur's arrest, but the sort of an endeavor to try and get some of the details of investigation started with an application that myself. And my colleague Kenyan Wallace put in, in March of twenty eighteen a couple of months after MacArthur's arrest to try and get court documents that would show us some of the steps that police took along the way to arrest MacArthur, but also years earlier, what they'd done to investigate the disappearances of missing men from Toronto ski village. Those documents are called IT Ohs. Okay. It's towns, four information to obtain, essentially, it's the case that they put to the court for why they should be allowed to. Do certain kind of invasive investigative steps such as such as tracking someone. So putting a tracker on their vehicle to get live updates on, on where they're going getting access to their cell phone that could be data could be sort of trying to understand who they're communicating with and one of the most invasive ones that they did end up doing in this case was to get permission to go covertly, search Bruce MacArthur's apartment, and that was obtained through a general warrant. We've talked about MacArthur a couple of times on this podcast, and it's always in the context of rightly, so the, the victims and the community or how long it took to get to his arrest, and that's been a sticking point with a lot of people who have covered this case or even just watched it unfold. Yeah. And, and seeing the work that was done is really instructive to that end. We got upwards of I think it was three dozen IT ITO's from project Houston, which as you know, was the investigation. Into the first three missing men from Toronto's. Gay village scandal, never at them. I'm still buys your Z and Machida K Hon and they went missing in between two thousand ten and two thousand twelve and there was a roughly an eighteen months task force that was formed to investigate their disappearance. And I think one of the most interesting aspects of the most recent release of these documents from the courts was getting a detailed view of what they did during that investigation. We knew that they had identified someone who they thought might be responsible for the death of Scandinavia Ratnam. And that was a, a man out in Peterborough who police believed was involved in cannibalism ring, and it's, it's really interesting to see the resources that went into investigating that individual and not, you know, that does show that these disappearances were taken seriously at the time and they were investigated. Unfortunately, they identified the wrong person. What I think is very important to note from some of the project Houston were is that an and to be fair. Police have also been pretty up front about this as well. Is that the identification of three Brown middle aged men, having gone missing from the village that that wasn't something that was generated by Toronto police itself that came out of a tip that, that came from across the world, a man who thought that he had identified accountable in Toronto, and that was how they began to stop and say, oh, I guess, we have a few men who volunteer this category of Brown men from the village have gone missing. And I think that, that is a really important issue. And hopefully it's actually already been solved because in the last year Toronto police have have created a special missing persons unit that would hopefully now be able to identify the kinds of patterns that come up when you have the same sorts of people going going missing. So you looked at a ton of court. Dr. Kamenz and ITO's and interviewed some of the detectives who worked on the case as you kind of sat down to put all that together and find out how to craft a narrative. What are the first things that stood out in your mind? I, I have to say, I'm really lucky that I was given the time in the space to do that kind of reporting and writing, and I'm really thankful for that. And it was not a solo effort had help from my colleague, and I had incredible editing. From my editor at top, what stood out for me always sort of? And what's interesting is that we got a look at these documents way back in the fall. But because there was an ongoing trial MacArthur had not yet pled guilty. There are his fair trial rights, so all of these documents are sort of redacted, and then after he pled guilty. We got one IT, oh, that was sort of Representative that was far less redacted. So we got more information there. So I guess my point is it was sort of a gradual release of information and through at that process. It always was astonishing to me, the ways in which this investigation could have gone off the rails. Like there were all kinds of times when. There was excellent police work, or there were major hurdles that came up and everything could have gone wrong. So a couple of examples is Bruce MacArthur's van went missing and it was missing for about two weeks. And that was because MacArthur, had purchased a new van, and he had driven it out to a relative's home and police had had followed it there, and they knew that it was potentially very crucial to the investigation. And in fact, it was incredibly important to their investigation. What ended up happening was they saw parked up the relatives home than stopped being there. They would go back and check on it, and it was gone, and that's a scary thing, and it was gone for about two weeks. And finally, they decided okay, we have to go find this thing, and they started checking sort of auto wreckers, and he, he just happened to, to drop it off at a place where they salvage parts. And so the van was pretty much intact, they would end up finding evidence in that van that was absolutely critical. Thaad investigation and that was. Was a very small blood splatter from Andrew kinsman. And what that did was enable the investigators to take Bruce, MacArthur from a person of interest in Andrew kinsman Steph to a suspect in his murder will. Let's tell the, the story of that investigation then from the point of view of the investigators maybe start with when Bruce MacArthur became a person of interest when I show up on their radar and what happened internally. And what's interesting too, is that Bruce MacArthur was investigated during project Houston as well. Right. So that's that's important to know. And I think we've kind of people know that because again, that was one of the things that always comes up as a failing of the police work because that is what it looks like you know, they had him, he was right there and nothing happened until he resurfaced as part of project prison. How did that come about? So project. Prism was formed in August of twenty seventeen and it came about after Andrew kinsman 's disappear. Durance in June of two thousand seventeen that disappearance came only a few months after a man named Salim 'Send went missing. He was also a well known person within the village. So there was a lot of public outcry and concern expressed and Toronto police truck a task force because I think it's important understand that when someone goes missing it is investigated, but I, I mean, I'm not a police officer, but my understanding is that it can be difficult to focus on a single case. When you're at the detachment, they're really, really busy, especially fifty-one division, where this was happening. And so they struck a task force that would clear up several officers give them just sort of one thing to do. And that was investigate Andrew kinsman disappearance and essence disappearance at that time, they had no evidence, as far as I know that they were connected at all. But it made sense for this team to tackle it together a few days into project p project. Prism investigators were reviewing some of the surveillance footage that had been captured soon after Andrew kinsman Steph. And they were able to determine around the time that Andrew had gone missing. I know that they have been talking to neighbors and trying to figure out who had the last contact and as I understand it, they, they knew that he had gone missing sometime in the afternoon. The were reviewing the footage and realize that sort of in the top top right corner. I mean, I don't know which one they looked at first. But ultimately, they were able to determine that there was a red van that came to a stop near under Commons apartment, sort of very close across the street. And there was a figure who appeared to be under Ken's men, who got into that van. And they did not know what that van was they could not see the face of the individual who's driving, and they could not see the license plate. And so to me, that's what is really quite impressive. Is that they were able to take that red van. And determined that it was a dodge. They took it to dodge dealership. And I, I spoke to Mario Wong who was the salesman who spoke the police he was. So he was just very forthright with me. He was like, yeah. Of course, I told them I was I he felt it was really important to do. His part to help this investigation, even though the officers who came to speak to him didn't tell them, what they were doing, but he knew he knew based on some of the sort of the appearance package. They call it that this was a two thousand four twentieth anniversary dodge caravan, what the investigators do is they request all of the ownership information for for those fans for that make of making model. So they, they get the spreadsheet and detective David Dickinson, who was the sort of primary investigator on project presume, he told me that he was at his home. He opened up the spreadsheet at, like, ten pm at his dining room table and search for Bruce. Because Bruce had been written on Andrew kinsman calendar on June twenty six which was the day that he went missing and they had no idea what the importance of Bruce was. But they were able to determine it to be something that they had to sort of test or discount. And that's how an investigation like this has been explained to me is that they sort of test everything until it is proven to be irrelevant. And so he searches Bruce in that spreadsheet and five owners have that name only one of them owned that specific make of the van and also only one of them had any recent contact with police. And so that was Bruce MacArthur, and that recent contact was in two thousand sixteen when a man alleged that MacArthur had a strangled him inside MacArthur's own van, and that he'd gotten away. I mean you can imagine that, that discovery this is a man who is likely gay, who has been accused of salting someone. In his van. And that's the same van that scene, picking up. Anderson's men at the same time that he appears to, to disappear. So I know that that was that was quite a important moment in that investigation. And, and it really just builds from there. What does that put in motion from the perspective of the investigators when they have that, that puts in motion, someone who is a person of interest, he was made a person of interest within a few days of that investigation? It's really remarkable to see how quickly things progressed from there. I mean the day after that discovery is made from the spreadsheet. There's an investigator who's at, at the thorn cliff park apartment where MacArthur lived so they're, they're, and they're learning everything they can about where he's coming and going, there's like a key fob. So that can kind of record your comings and goings. And also it recorded when it was being used to open the park aide. Right. So because they could tell when he was driving. They do get ultimately gets. Permission from the courts to put a tracker on his vehicles. So they've discovered that he's since purchase a new van, and that he has taken

So we're telling you about all the missing gay men in Toronto's gay village area of Toronto known as gay village. And there are five men that have gone missing. And a name keeps kind of coming up is the name, Bruce MacArthur. Police had questioned him a couple of times Bruce MacArthur because he had connections to some of the men who had turned up missing. But they didn't really think anything of of Bruce. And then the last man goes missing, and they're investigating things in his home. And they find his calendar and on the day that he disappeared. He had written. One word, Bruce. Oh, yeah. And then there was a surveillance footage that showed him getting inside. Bruce MacArthur's van. Now when they did search Bruce MacArthur's apartment once again, they discovered trinkets that they said belonged to three of the missing men along with a duffle bag that had you know, murder tools duct tape black bungee cord, surgical gloves. Zip ties rope syringes, and then the key was January of last year. When they found a garden planters, he was killing men dismembering them. And then hiding there remains in flower pots at a private home where he worked as a landscaper. Over the spring and the summer officials combed through the planters a nearby ravine. And they located the remains of three other men who had vanished years before. So originally he had only been charged with the five murders. And then they tack these three others on there. And there's no longer any doubt that there was a serial killer that had been stocking gay village for at that point now eight years just about averaging one death a year. Even though they were caps in there. And there were some that were close together. One reason they say that he may have avoided detection may have been his age. He's believed to be the oldest serial killer in Canadian history. And. Santa. Yeah. That he was arrested, and it was a shock to people that knew this guy because. Good old, Bruce, Bruce, he was into plants. When we know that he was into his grandkids. And he was a former mall Santa he bore an uncanny resemblance to Santa Claus. When they described who this guy was they said that he had realized he was gay a very young age, but he married a woman in to conceal a sexuality in his forties. He finally came out to friends and family left, his wife and kids to start over in Toronto and became a regular at some of these gay bars. Now, there was one potential clue into this guys. Propensity for violence because in two thousand three he was convicted of beating a male prostitute with a metal pipe and the sentence actually required him to stay away from gay village and not have any contact with prostitutes and stop using Amel nightrider are poppers. The other thing about this is the racial aspects of this the the eight victims if you just read the names Seylam Essen Maggi Cayenne dean, Lissack Suresh, mock moody, scon- Dhiraj, Navaratnam Albelda are easy Corocha Kumar kind of dumb. And then the last one we're telling you about where they found the word Bruce written on this guy's calendar. His name was Andrew kinsman. And there is a suggestion among the gay community there in Toronto that the only reason the only reason they were able to catch him was because it was a white guy. Who was the last one to disappear? Well, and we've seen that in in several serial killer cases, they pick people who general society doesn't really care about. It's it's not the the pretty white girl. It's it's the it's the the prostitutes look at the the grim sleeper black prostitutes is what he has the pick vulnerable people in society who may live life on the edge. This guy picked up a lot of people who had drug problems and who were there from other countries. Nobody was going to be calling it in when they were missing in the police would say, well that guy was addicted to crack so who knows where he ended up, and I wonder what the I don't know what the answer which answer creeps me out more to this question. Do they consciously? Choose people who will not be reported missing. Or is it just is it just something? They're drawn to you mentioned the people that are on the outskirts of society, these people who are addicted to drugs sex straightaway with chef with those people. Here's here's another gross angle to this day said most of the murders were sexual in nature and that he used ligature to kill his victims. Very green river killer. Gary Ridgway used to do all that stuff to same same style of of sexualize murders. And also picking the people on the edges of society. That would not be reported missing. Well, it's our palate, let's do that. Let's go to Chicago. And we'll talk to Ryan burrow, Blake can do his borough joke. And we'll we'll lightning and by the way. Oh, we have a great story coming up to about little secret. What's my gosh? It's so good. All right. We'll do that. As we come around as well. Hi, Jo Kwon, really cold over there.

"So well that that's the scary thing. Can't them because you know what happens during that situation is you don't have. I wouldn't imagine that you have the top cops, you know, you don't have the the super detective outfall owing around Bruce MacArthur. That's kind of a a tedious task. They give you give to some the rookie gets right. So you got these guys out falling Bruce MacArthur around, there's there is a phone call. There's a cell phone call made at that time that says, you know what look boss. I understand that we have an active investigation here. I understand that our number one priority is to follow this dude around and see what he's up to. However, I have to tell you a guy that could potentially fit this dudes. Victimology just went into his apartment. What. We do boss because you run the risk of completely sabotaging your investigation here, or you also run the risk of one, not your job is to protect the public protecting serve you. Could you could be sending a guy to his to to the death sentence? Yeah, to birth, Bruce MacArthur's apartment. And then that's on your hands as a as a department. And I'm sure that the chief or whoever says, hey, you got to go in because I, if if it gets out that they're falling this individual and he basically murdered somebody underneath your nose. Now you're going to catch him for that crime. You're going to lock him away for that, but you got to get him on these other crimes as well. But it's also going to come out to the public that you were watching him and basically murdered somebody and you knew it right under your watchful eye. This guy was killed. Now, the thing here is what they do alternately do decide to break down the door. They go in and they find this this man chain to the bed. Now. Okay. Now there's a lot of people out there going to go. Okay. Well, he went into the apartment willingly. Yes, and he could have been could have been involved in a consensual act right drug stanza. So so what we're talking about here though, is there there are some wording within these news reports where we find out very quickly after then going into BRUCE'S apartment that they start to search BRUCE'S apartment. They start to search areas in locations that are tied to Bruce MacArthur, and a lot of a lot of homes are going to be tied to him because he does work out a lot of homes. Yeah, and I want to be clear here because we are making some assumptions today's show and we have to because this is such new information that once the police make their arrest and they, they announced the public that we've made an arrest. Guess what you're not going to get much information after that because we need this stuff for trial, right? So we have to make some assumptions here to kind of tie the store. Together to tell it completely. And that being my suspicion is that when they kicked in that door and they found that gentleman chained to the bed. Yeah, there's a good chance that he told police look. Yeah, I came in here willingly at some point. This guy's doing something against my wishes without my consent while he coulda pulled. I mean, there's so many weird things here that BRUCE'S to me like it. This reminds me of a lot of things. One, the lead pipe attacking individual where with the lead pipe and then having that attack where he apologized for it, that that is something that happened with gase. Yeah. And then you got this situation where you have individual that goes into your house willingly, but now you get him. Handcuffed minds may have gase as well old. You know the old handcuff trick, and so was he tricked and then. Also you know, preying on the gay community bath houses in bars. That's very Dahmer like to me. Yeah. And when you hear that this guy is charged with a couple of couple counts of murder. You start to wonder, okay. Well, if he did do this and you know me, I like to call amount on the show. He's looking very guilty even early on in this even with the assumptions that we have to make. He's he's looking to be very guilty year. Well, maybe can clear this up for me the the guy that they found handcuffed to the bed. Does he come out and state? I, I didn't wanna be handcuffed. I don't know that I'm making a complete shin there. I'm, here's what I'm guessing because they found some people are into that bright. Of course, of course. Couldn't you say like that? Okay. Anyway. The thing here is though my assumption is that this guy felt threatened or concern for his life or well being at some point and was probably thankful that the cops had kicked in the door. And the reason why say that is because I don't know exactly how the the rules and the laws work up in Canada, but here, okay. If they would have kicked in the door, they can kick in the door on probable cause. But if that guy says, look, I came in here willingly and we're just two grown. Men were to adults doing adult things. Nobody's in trouble here burst MacArthur has every right to tell the police get the hell out of my apartment. Yeah, we're just doing a horizontal, negative hug. Yeah, adult hug toes defeat toast to face, but no. Okay, anyway. So the thing here is captain if enlist the police have probable cause to search his apartments. I think something happened. They witness something that they said, look either. We don't need Bruce MacArthur's consent or this guy that was chained to the bed. He's a potential victim. He tells us something is not right is going down. Now we have probable cause to search Bruce MacArthur's apartment. The reason why I say that is because they must have found something they must have found something in that apartment that led them from from where they were before where they were just surveilling him to. Now we have enough that we are going to arrest this guy, charge him with two counts of first degree murder. And yet we have no bodies. They found something in that apart. And the you here in the trailer earlier is, is the idea that if you don't have any bodies, it's really hard to convict somebody, but they feel like they have enough evidence of such. Now following BRUCE'S, arrest, we have other people coming out and we have other sources. And in fact, the start coming. Out and telling stories about brute Bruce MacArthur. Now, one story is about an alleged sexual assault. This is from as early back as two thousand sixteen. So a police source, this is quote unquote. A police source told to, I think it was the global news, but regardless it was one of the news outlets this story involving Bruce MacArthur, and it goes like this that the source said that MacArthur had agreed to me a man. Again, this is from some time in two thousand sixteen that he became acquainted with through an online dating app, the to agree to meet for consensual sex at a secluded, north York parking lot. During the date. The source told MacArthur at legibly. I'm sorry. The source said, MC Arthur allegedly started to choke him while the couple were in the back of MacArthur's red van. The man was able to fight MacArthur off and told MacArthur he was going to call. A police MacArthur reportedly then drove to the forty one division police station and Scarborough where he told officers that he was going to be caught that they were going to be called about a sexual assault and MacArthur's telling the officers. You know, this wasn't true. This is not going to be a true statement that you're about to receive from this person. This act was consensual, and while this is all going down, we have the man who was allegedly choked. He did call the police like he said, he would for him and he talks to, he talked to officers at the thirty two division and Toronto's north end. So at some point, the source than said, told the news that MacArthur was placed under arrest and was taken to the thirty two division where he was investigated for this situation. The problem here though is whatever. Goes down, whatever MacArthur tells these officers. He's not arrested and he's not charged with anything. And now that they have Bruce arrested and he's being charged with these murders of these missing men. We're going to have other people that were attacked other men that were attacked by Bruce come forward and share their counts of an and how they survived attack from this vicious guy. Yes. Let's listen to this man story. Macarthur

"All right. Well, we kinda left you hanging yesterday, everybody and we, that's the magic of the garage right nam than we can do whatever we want. No, we ran out of time. There was so sinister smug, even there was a lot to talk about in that little three minute news clip that we left you with yesterday. And the thing here is regarding Bruce MacArthur and what's come down the pipeline as of late. You need understand this is about as new of a case as you can get. This is pretty this is like breaking news for the garage here because we have a man that's arrested, late January. Here we are the beginning of March. Trying to figure out what happened here in how this thing's going to go down once it gets to court one because they're so much information coming out from this. We're getting a lot of emails and a lot of people on social media saying, hey, look into this cover this case, then you have to the balance of. Can you cover this cases there enough to talk about? Yeah. Well, the interesting thing to captain is this kind of came on to our radar middle to late. Eight of last year when we started getting emails from our good listeners that are saying, hey, there's something going on here in Toronto. There's all these missing men. And at the time you have these two different task force and we don't know that anything's connected. It wasn't until the breaking news in January that they had tied a lot of these cases together and all the big thing here is that they all share the same suspect. So let's talk about that news clip a little bigger cabinet. So what does that tell us? That tells me some very, very scary stuff at the at the very beginning of that news clip is where the the man states that police Saul, a man go up to the apartment with Bruce MacArthur up to place, and then they decide to kick in the door and when they get into the apartment, they find that this man that went willingly into Bruce MacArthur's apartment that he's chained up to the bed. Yeah. So what does that tell us? So we know at that time that for some reason. In September of two thousand seventeen Bruce MacArthur became he, he came onto their radar unto polices radar. They go to this auto parts. This auto body auto parts sounds more like a salvage yard type thing to me, but he sells them Bruce sold these people. His vehicle has van. Yeah, this dodge caravan. The rumor that I keep hearing the most is that there might have been dried blood in the back of the van. Yeah. My thought on this was when they're looking into Bruce or your even this van. At some point, they probably took cadaver dogs and had them sniff around and I'm, I'm guessing that they got hits from these dogs, and that's why they took this van over. I would be willing to wager that you're probably exactly right because here's what my thoughts are captain is it there was something in that van something enter on that van. It was noth- for police. We talked about gut feelings as well. There was enough for police with their expertise in their years involved in in Slough thing and in homicide investigations where these guys felt that this guy, this Bruce MacArthur guy, this guy that sold this van, he's guilty of probably murder. There's a chance he's linked to more than one of these disappearances of these men. So we have enough evidence to to stay on this investigation. We don't have enough evidence to wrap him up to to arrest him and send this thing to court. So what do we have to do here? This guy is potentially very, very dangerous. Yeah, we need to follow this guy. Maybe here's what I wanted to do. You are you fall? You're following the guy probably for a multitude of reasons. Right. But one is if you think that he might be linked to more than one disappearance. Are you following him with the simple fact that let's see where he goes because we have no bodies. We have all these guys that have disappeared. We have no bodies. We, we don't even know where to start looking for bodies yet. Right? Because boss play. There's a dumping ground somewhere. I think other possibly to is that you know, he has a violent past. He pled guilty to attacking a man with a lead pipe. And so if you think that two of them are connected and possibly more than two and then you start looking in the database of all the men that are roughly forty to sixty years old that have gone missing and the gay village of Toronto. Then you start going while there could be more than five, bright, and then you start Quan. Well, this is a possible serial killer and if so, you want to stop him from having another victim. And could you imagine the hor- that you're tracking this individual and he. Has a gentleman with them and they're gonna go into. They're either going to go into BRUCE'S apartment and for all, you know, that's the, that's his dungeon so

"This morning at approximately ten twenty five AM police arrested Sixty-six-year-old, Bruce MacArthur of the city of Toronto. He is self employed as a landscaper using the company name, artistic design, and he lives in the thorn cliff park area. He has been charged with two counts of first degree murder in relation to Mr. kinsman and Mr. Assen. We believe his responsible for the deaths of mistress and Mr. kinsman, and we believe he is responsible for the deaths of other men who have yet to be identified. In other words, we believe there are other victims. As of right now, interviews or taking place and police have secured five properties for in Toronto and one in Medak connected to Bruce MacArthur in an effort to further investigate these occurrences. We have not yet found the bodies we're actively looking for them were conducting these search warrants in efforts to locate the bodies. But at this point in time, no, we have not located them. I'm well aware of the difficulty prosecuting people without recovering the bodies. But in this case, we believe we have strong enough evidence where we can do exactly that. All right. So now we're saying or law enforcement saying, we think at least these two, the two victims that are connected with project prism are connected. So the way that this is being reported at this time as that on January seventeenth, two thousand eighteen investigators searched several properties all linked to Bruce MacArthur, including his residence and property where he was known to store supplies, evidence at either one or both of these locations found that seems to be good enough to tie Bruce MacArthur to the deaths of kinsmen and ascend now at this time at the time of the arrest. As you heard on January eighteen two thousand eighteen, they have no bodies yet. But regardless MacArthur is arrested and charged with two counts of first degree murder. Now a little more clarity on the subject because one. Question that I find presented often it seems this to be a big one is how and when did this guy get on the polices radar, right, right. Because here we have them saying he's linked to two cases via the charges we just discussed, but there are certainly a much longer relationship between Bruce a man that disappeared, Bruce employed scandal, and they had a romantic relationship. So when and wide Bruce appear on the police radar now, Toronto police have not said exactly how long Bruce MacArthur had been on their radar. They have said that the charges were laid out after months of probing. Now, according to information told to the local media by employee's at a place called Dom 's auto parts shop. Well, a source says, investigators had been onto Bruce MacArthur since at least the fall of two thousand seventeen. And fact the owner of the shop said. Police officers arrived in late September. This was because they there were suspicious about a vehicle they asked for and began watching surveillance video. Bruce MacArthur selling his dodge caravan to the shop after studying the tape. The police then seized the old rusted, maroon dodge caravan sold by MacArthur and they had it towed away. There's always a creeper van. Now, my guess is there must have been something in that van because then they start. That's when they start to follow Bruce MacArthur around and then listen to this new story and listen close because there's a lot in there. I'm major go. Braille were live outside of alleged serial killer Bruce MacArthur's apartments tonight in east Toronto. Now, the tonight police source confirms that back on January eighteenth they watched a young man walk into the nineteen th floor of MacArthur's apartment that is when officers moved in rushing the apartment kicking down the door inside they found that young man handcuffed to the allege serial killers bed. Police source says that young man made it out safe though. Tonight we're learning more about another man whose fate is still unclear. It was just a lovely person and he's going to be missed. Investigators believe year. Dean Lissa wick was killed sometime between may twenty sixteen and July twenty seventeen. No one ever reported him missing. However, a wick was a regular at the Scott mission in Toronto for more than a decade staff. Tell me the last time he was there was an April of two thousand sixteen. I spoke with a longtime worker at the mission today, canoe Lissa, wick and shared her colleagues. Memories of him, a memory of a man they say is important to share. He would often give to clients out of his own. So if he realizes somebody needed shelter, he would put repents that person needs it more than me, and he would give up his and very generous out of just whatever he had, whether it was changed or an item clothing, he would often be known just to pass that on to other clients. Residents. MacArthur is charged with the murder of five men. Andrew kinsman Salim 'Send Majid's Kayhan Seru, smashed moody, and dean. Lissa wick yesterday we told you that police have unearthed. The dismembered remains of at least three identified individuals for multiple large planters from some of the thirty properties. They're sifting through. On January twenty. First city news captured police, removing this large, heavy planter from the property of Ron Smith. And Karen Frazier today spoke on the phone with Smith. He says, police have been very professional while conducting their investigation on the couple's Lee side property and its heart goes out to the victims and their families, though being removed from their homes with no return date and Saint has been difficult. You have to get out of your house. You have to get. Now this is serious, and Bye-bye. So we grabbed a couple of things left and it's been a shambles ever since the reality winking we're now on our second group of friends who have been good enough to able to keep us we are far away. So what we do every now and then we dry just to check into see with look playing, and it really is very surreal. Smith adds that MacArthur worked on his property for about ten years. Do some free work there in turn. They let MacArthur store some of his equipment on their Lee side property in the garage at their home. Now, tonight, the folks over at Scott mission also confirm with me that police came and interviewed them just before we went in there today, they're asking if anyone else who uses the mission may have ties to Bruce MacArthur tonight. The investigation still continues the story keeping a close eye on the days to come. So
