  'No truth' to story Bruce McArthur cannibalized victims, detective says Forensic pathologists are sifting through the contents of at least 15 planters in connection with the Bruce McArthur case, the lead investigator confirmed, as police continued their work Saturday at a property in Toronto where human remains were found. Det.-Sgt. Hank Idsinga told CBC Toronto Saturday that human remains may not be found in all of the planters. "But we have seized anything that the canine units have hit on," he said in an email. Idsinga also refuted a story published at an online gossip site suggesting that McArthur may have cannibalized the alleged victims.

Toronto police are digging up the main drainpipe in front of a property where alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur worked and stored landscaping equipment. Remains of at least 6 people found in planters, including those of Andrew Kinsman.
