UPDATE - February, 8, 2019: Serial killer Bruce McArthur is sentenced to life in prison with no eligibility for parole for at least 25 years for the murders of eight men in Toronto. [external link]
In early 2018 Bruce McArthur was charged with six counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of missing men from Toronto's gay village, the news of an alleged serial killer shocked a community, a city and a country. But the case is far from closed and as the police continue their investigation, the death toll is expected to rise. The allegations are that McArthur spent years masterfully covering his tracks. McArthur denies all the accusations.
The police are also looking as far back as the 1970s when McArthur was a young man in his twenties, working in downtown Toronto.
Then, as now, death stalked the village. Then, as now, tensions and distrust between police and the gay community hampered the investigation.
The Fifth Estate uncovers the stories of men from Toronto’s gay community who were brutally killed over four decades ago. Many of those cases are still unsolved – cold cases that are now being re-opened.
