Bruce McArthur's apartment

This is Bruce McArthur's former apartment building.

It is situated at 95 Thorncliffe Park Drive in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

McArthur lived in apartment number 1915, which is on the 19th floor.

The serial killer moved to this address at some point between 2007 and 2008.

Between 2010 and 2017, McArthur murdered eight men in his bedroom through "ligature strangulation". 

However, his age and the sophistication of his crimes have led detectives and criminologists to believe that he started killing people much earlier than 2010. This is because most serial killers tend to start between the ages of 25 and 35.

On January 18th, 2018, a police surveillance team noticed McArthur entering this building with a younger man. By that stage, the authorities had enough evidence to prove that he was involved in the murders of two men named Selim Esen and Andrew Kinsman. As a result, they decided to enter the apartment and arrest him.

Their decision to end the surveillance and execute the arrest proved to be the correct one, as they found the young man tied to a bed.

Following his arrest, a police forensic team spent four months combing through his apartment. The walls, furniture, ceilings, and floors were all painstakingly examined.

In January 2019, McArthur pleaded guilty to eight charges of first-degree murder. One month later, he was sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole for 25 years.

He will not be able to apply for parole until he reaches the age of 91. And even then, it is extremely likely that his application will be denied.

During the four-month-long forensic investigation into McArthur's apartment, Toronto Police Service vehicles were constantly parked outside the building.


McArthur's bedroom

McArthur's victims were strangled to death in his bedroom.

It is likely that he specifically chose this metal bed frame because it was sturdy and offered multiple points to constrain someone.

During a search of the apartment, investigators found individually labeled folders, which he had been using to store photographs of his victims, both dead and alive. In total, they discovered 18,000 photographs.

Following their deaths, the victims were posed and photographed wearing fur coats, cigars, and hats.

When the police forced their way into the apartment on January 18th, 2018, they discovered a frightened young man tied to the bed with a black bag over his head.


Bruce McArthur victims

Bruce McArthur murdered eight men between 2010 and 2017. He typically targeted men who looked Middle Eastern or Asian.

At the time of the murders, he was working as a landscaper.

His first known victim was Skandaraj "Skanda" Navaratnam (third man from the left, on the top row). Skanda was last seen on September 6th, 2010. He had romantic ties with McArthur in the past and had also worked for his landscaping business.

McArthur contacted many of his victims through gay dating websites and fetish websites. Following the murders, he buried their remains in large flower pots and planters.

In July 2017, the Toronto Police Service set up a task force to investigate the disappearances of local men. The first clue was discovered in the calendar of Andrew Kinsman (bottom left). On the calendar entry for the date that he went missing, Kinsman had written the name "Bruce".
