Police believe McArthur killed Majeed Kayhan, 58, on or about Oct 18, 2012 - shortly before the Afghan immigrant was reported missing by his son.

Kayhan had been a part of an earlier police investigation known as Project Houston.  The probe ran from Nov 2012 until April 2014 and looked at Kayhanís disappearance as well as those of Skanda Navaratnam, 40, who last seen on Sept. 6, 2010; and Abdulbasir Faizi, 42, who was reported missing on Dec. 29, 2010.

Police believe McArthur killed Soroush Mahmudi, 50, on or about Aug. 15, 2015, the last day he was seen alive by his home in Scarborough.


Dean Lisowick

Sometime between April 4, 2016 and March 15, 2017, police allege McArthur killed Dean Lisowick, a man in his mid-40s who had no fixed address at the time, and whose disappearance was never reported to police.
