Court Hears Gruesome Details About The Bruce McArthur Murders

The sentencing hearing continues today for Bruce McArthur. Friends and relatives of his eight victims are expected to continue reading their victim impact statements. Yesterday court heard more details about the murders. Prosecutor Michael Cantlon, reading from an agreed statement of facts, says the serial killer posed many of his victims’ bodies for photographs after the murders and he was likely moments away from murdering a ninth man from the gay community when police moved in to make the arrest. They stormed in and found a naked man tied to the bed. When police searched McArthur’s computer, they found folders with images of his eight previous victims. Cantlon also says a ninth folder was entitled “John” and appears to have contained photographs of the man who was found handcuffed to McArthur’s bed. 67-year-old McArthur pleaded guilty last week to eight counts of first-degree murder.
