The Canadian police have identified the remains of a Sri Lankan man they believe is a possible victim of suspected serial killer Bruce McArthur.

McArthur, 66, who was a landscaper by profession, was charged yesterday (Apr. 16) with an eighth count of first-degree murder in the death of Sri Lankan Kirushna Kumar Kanagaratnam.
 
Kanagaratnam, aged 37, arrived from Sri Lanka in 2010 and lived in Scarborough.
 
He has no immediate family in Canada and was never reported as missing.
 
Police believe Kanagaratnam was killed sometime between 3rd of September and 14th of December, 2015.
 
In March, police released the photograph of an unidentified deceased man as part of the investigation into the accused killer in the hopes a member of the public could help in his identification.
 
Police said they received hundreds of tips, and announced late last week they had made a successful identification.
 
Toronto police detective Hank Idsinga said that Kanagaratnam's direct family, who live in Sri Lanka, were informed over the weekend of his death.
 
The detective did not reveal Kanagaratnam's immigration status and said he had never been reported missing in Canada.
 
His remains were identified as one of at least 7 dismembered bodies found in plant pots on a midtown Toronto property linked to McArthur.
 
Three additional positive identifications have been made on the seven sets of human remains recovered in large planters at a home where McArthur, a self-employed landscaper, stored work materials.
