Toronto serial killer pleads guilty to eight counts of murder

Associated Press in Toronto
Tue 29 Jan 2019 17.54 GMT

A former landscaper accused of sexually assaulting, killing and dismembering men he met in Toronto’s Gay Village district over seven years has pleaded guilty to eight counts of first-degree murder.

Bruce McArthur, wearing a black sweater, stood up and said “guilty” eight times as the charges were read on Tuesday. Sentencing will start on 4 February.

Police last year found the remains of seven of the men in large planters at a property where McArthur had worked. The remains of the eighth victim were found in a ravine behind the same property in midtown Toronto.

The prosecutor, Michael Cantlon, said the cases involved sexual assault or forcible confinement and said the bodies were hidden and dismembered.

2. Wow never even heard of this case ... what a freaking asshole, jeez ... what is WRONG with people?

You'd think that even with it happening in Canada this would've gotten some real coverage in the US, but somehow I totally missed it.

Kinda glad of that I suppose. How utterly horrible. This is damn near Gacy/Dahmer-level shit right here.

3. So sad. I don't remember hearing anything about this

either. Glad he was caught before he continued his murder spree.
