Toronto Serial Killer McArthur Will Never See Daylight Again

Serial killer Bruce McArthur sentenced to life in prison

Justice John McMahon is going through his sentencing decision for Bruce McArthur and says he has no doubt the 67-year-old would have killed again if he hadn't been arrested last year.

McArthur was charged for the murders of Majeed Kayhan, Soroush Mahmudi, Dean Lisowick, Selim Esen, Andrew Kinsman, Skandaraj (Skanda) Navaratnam, Kirushnakumar Kanagaratnam and Abdulbasir Faizi, whose names were read aloud by crown prosecutor Michael Cantlon.

But if, as often happens, a judge orders someone with multiple convictions to serve his or her sentences concurrently instead of consecutively, he or she becomes eligible to apply at the 25-year mark no matter how many people he or she killed or what other crimes he or she committed.

His victims were Selim Esen, Andrew Kinsman, Majeed Kayhan, Dean Lisowick, Kirushna Kumar Kanagaratnam, Abdulbasir Faizi, Skandaraj Navaratnam, and Soroush Mahmudi. The killer will be eligible for parole at the age of 91.

The first was that McArthur - unlike Millard, for example - had entered an early guilty plea which "is an extremely mitigating factor".

Not only did he stage and photograph his victims so he could relive his horrific handiwork, but the "morally bankrupt" killer subjected them to the most heinous indignity after death.

The judge noted that McArthur had shown no remorse for having preyed on vulnerable men on the margins of society, some of whom were struggling with drug addictions and their hidden sexuality.

Justice John McMahon called McArthur a sexual predator who killed for his own "warped sick gratification" and said the victims suffered slow and painful deaths. "The victims' bodies were manipulated, positioned with ligatures around their necks, and dressed with fur clothing and cigars in some of their mouths", McMahon said. McArthur would access some of the photos long after the killings.

They also want to highlight how they employ thousands of people in Ocasio-Cortez's district in Queens and the Bronx, they said . The New Yorker is bringing a special guest to her first State of the Union as a congresswoman: Ana Maria Archila.

"The ability to decapitate and dismember his victims, and to do it repeatedly, is pure evil", McMahon said. One man's remains were found in a garbage bin buried in a nearby ravine.

"First, their loved ones went missing... in numerous victim impact statements friends and families recount searching for months on end fruitlessly, holding on to hope their loved one was alive and well", he said.

Bezan says he wants to ease the impact on victims' families when serious offenders, who often do not get paroled, apply anyway and get the hearings they're entitled to when they do. All of them had ties to the city's LGBTQ community. "So far, we have no evidence to link Mr. McArthur to any of those cases".

"The accused's brutal killings have devastated the LGBTQ community".

The review was sparked when the detective leading the probe said he came across some "concerning" information while reviewing two previous investigations into five missing men from the gay village.

"It's not a mandatory minimum (sentence), it's not something that is dictated to the courts, the judge still has the discretion to level the parole-ineligibility period at the time of sentencing", Bezan said. "If he were to be paroled I think we would have to start questioning sentencing in this country".
