Canadian police say they have found the remains of six people at a property linked to an alleged serial killer who has been charged with five murders.

Idsinga said more charges against McArthur, are expected - who is now facing five counts of first-degree murder. The charges are related to the deaths of Selim Esen, 44, Andrew Kinsman, 49, Majeed Kayhan, 58, Soroush Mahmudi, 50, and Dean Lisowick, either 43 or 44.

Idsinga said that police have the DNA profiles of at least two other men whom McArthur is charged with the murder of, though he refused to speculate on whether the remains located to date might belong to any of those men.

Forensic investigators continue to sift through the 15 planters seized by police from various properties connected to McArthur.

"I do anticipate more charges being laid", said Det-Sgt.

Like the previous remains that were found, police discovered the body parts in giant planters around his client's property. For years, members of the community urged police to look more closely at a string of disappearances - fearing there was a connection between the missing men.

Hank Idsinga said at a press conference Thursday afternoon.

Once police are finished with the evidence so far, Idsinga said they will re-examine "literally hundreds" of missing persons cases in search of potential links to McArthur. Idsinga said police had been thawing the frozen ground for a week to expedite the dig, adding they have already identified some areas of particular interest.

"There is an extensive digital investigation going on", said Idsinga.

"We have been going through hell". After working on the property for a week and a half, Idsinga said the number of remains recovered had doubled.

Toronto Police are also going through a list of missing persons over several years to see if any names can be linked with McArthur.

He said that police are also aware of "some of the locations" where the alleged murders took place but not all of them.
