Canada’s suspected gay killer had relationships with a man declared missing in 2010


Toronto police last week arrested 66-year-old Bruce McArthur and charged him with the murder of 2 men who disappeared last yer, but now it has been revealed that it might not be the end. The police are continuing to search properties connected with the Thorncliffe Park landscape gardener. McArthur is known to some gay people in the area and many of them believed he could be related to other people disappearing there.Before his Facebook page was removed shortly after his arrest, it was noted that McArthur was a Facebook friend with another man who had disappeared in 2010: Skandaraj Navaratnam. Now, friends of Navaratnam – known locally as Skanda – have spoken out about the relationship between the two men. Kevin Nash told CBC Skanda met McArthur in 1999 and the two had a relationship in the early 2000s. It is hard to make conclusions on whether the relationships were romantic but the two obviously knew each other. Navaratnam disappeared in 2010. He was last seen leaving popular gay bar Zipperz on 6 September with an unknown man. Police have confirmed to the Toronto Star that McArthur was not investigated in relation to Navaratnam’s disappearance at the time he went missing. Besides Navaratnam’s disappearance in 2010, two other men disappeared from the Toronto gay village between 2010 and 2012: Abdulbasir Faizi, 44, and Majeed Kayhan, 58. Police at the time investigated all three disappearances as Project Houston.
