McArthur, who is 66, has been charged with first degree murder in the death of 37-year-old Scarborough resident Kirushna Kumar Kanagaratnam, who is believed to have been killed in 2015.

Accused serial killer Bruce McArthur has been charged with an eighth count of first-degree murder, with Toronto police saying an worldwide agency helped them identify the new victim.

Idsinga says Kanagaratnam's remains were found at a home McArthur used as storage for his landscaping business.

"He was not on file as missing and we have no prior evidence that would link him to the gay village", Idsinga said at a news conference.

Toronto police were able to identify Kanagaratnam with the help of an global government agency after circulating a photo of him that was found during their investigation.

Bruce McArthur was originally arrested on January 18th.

In addition to the new avenues opened up by the discovery of Kanagaratnam's remains, police have also expanded the sprawling investigation decades into the past by examining some cold cases. McArthur came to the police's attention in the fall of 2017 as part of that probe. In addition, there was nothing linking him to Toronto's Gay Village, which is where McArthur is alleged to have found his victims, some of whom he had a sexual relationship with.

"Mr. Kanagaratnam is the male depicted in the previously released John Doe photograph", Idsinga said.

"We knew that, eventually, they would get the job done and would identify this eighth victim", said Idsinga.

He has no immediate family in Canada and was never reported as missing. Seven sets of human remains have now been identified; to date, Kayhan's remains have never been identified.

An external review to be launched later this month will look into the way in which Toronto police investigated the missing men reports.

He also acknowledged the work of the officers on Project Prism.

A police source previously told CBC Toronto the image of the dead man was among a cache of pictures of alleged victims found on McArthur's computer. Police said an unnamed worldwide agency helped identify Kanagaratnam after investigators released a heavily edited photo of a dead man in a plea for public help.
