September 2017 - Project Prism officers identify Bruce McArthur "as someone to be included or excluded as being involved in the disappearance of Andrew Kinsman". McArthur had already been charged with the first-degree murder of six other men who are believed to have died between 2010 and 2017.

The news conference where Toronto Police will be giving out the details of the investigation has been scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Hours before that Bruce McArthur will be appearing in a Toronto court by video.

McArthur, a self-employed landscaper, is now accused of first degree murder in Kayhan, Navaratnam and Faizi's deaths.

The most recent count was laid on Wednesday, when McArthur was formally charged in the death of 42-year-old Abdulbasir Faizi.

January 17, 2018 - Police uncover evidence suggesting McArthur was responsible for both Kinsman and Esen's deaths, along with the deaths of other unidentified people.

Det. -Sgt. Idsinga says police are preparing to expand their search for human remains to 75 locations in the Metro Toronto area where McArthur worked as a landscaper.

The city's police board has also approved an external review, requested by Mayor John Tory, that will look into how the force handled the cases of men missing from the gay village.

In August 2017, police launched Project Prism, which looked into the disappearances of Kinsman and Esen.
