Man charged in presumed deaths of two missing Toronto men set to appear in court

TORONTO — A man charged with first-degree murder in the presumed deaths of two men who vanished from Toronto’s gay village last year is set to appear in court today.

Bruce McArthur, a 66-year-old Toronto man, was arrested and charged yesterday as part of an investigation into the disappearance of Selim Esen and Andrew Kinsman.

Both men were reported missing from the Church and Wellesley streets area at separate times last year. Their bodies have not been found.

Police also say they believe McArthur is responsible for the deaths of other men, though they did not say who or what led them to that conclusion.

The arrest came months after police issued public reassurances that there was no evidence the men were dead or the cases were connected.

Police said yesterday new evidence surfaced this week that gave them a “definitive link,” but did not elaborate further.
