Police Showed Up To Arrest Serial Killer Just In Time To Save Ninth Victim Who Was Tied To His Bed

A Canadian serial killer has pled guilty for the murder of 8 men in Toronto.

The murderer, Bruce McArthur, specifically preyed upon Toronto’s gay community. He met all of his victims on dating apps and targeted those who were in unstable and vulnerable situations.

Last year, McArthur was arrested when he was with the man who would have been his ninth victim.

The man who had been identified simply as John was in McArthur’s home. He had been handcuffed to the bed with a bag over his head.

John managed to get the bag off his head, but his mouth was taped shut.

At this exact moment, police knocked on McArthur’s door, saving John’s life and arresting McArthur for the previous eight murders.

Authorities found files on McArthur’s computer for each man he murdered. They included photographs of each victim.

McArthur would sexually assault his victims before strangling them to death. Afterwards, he would dismember each body as well as shave their hair and beards and preserve it in a bag.

People are shocked by the horror of what the victims went through.

But it was also revealed that McArthur had been on the police’s radar for quite some time.

He was first convicted of sexual assault in 2003. In 2013 he was interviewed in regard to the disappearances of what was later learned to be 3 of his victims.

In 2016, McArthur attempted to strangle his friend but the police released him finding his version of the story to be “credible”.

People are shocked at how long it took the police to take McArthur seriously as the perpetrator.

The men who lost their lives at McArthur’s hand were Andrew Kinsman, Selim Esen, Majeed Kayhan, Soroush Mahmudi, Dean Lisowick, Skandaraj Navaratnam, Abdulbasir Faizi and Kirushna Kumar Kanagaratnam.
