The discovery was made by Toronto police officers at a home Bruce McArthur used as storage in return for doing the landscaping.
Detective Sergeant Hank Idsinga said the remains included some from Andrew Kinsman, one of the five men McArthur is already charged with killing.
The freelance landscaper was arrested last month and charged with two counts of murder in connection with the disappearances of Mr Kinsman and Selim Esen, who were last seen in the “Gay Village” district of Toronto.
Shortly afterwards, McArthur was charged with the murders of three more men.
Police say they are still searching for other possible victims and expect to find more remains in the more than a dozen “planters” that have been retrieved from around the city.
Investigators are still trying to determine who the other alleged victims are from the property.
At least 30 other places have been checked, including locations in some of Toronto’s wealthiest neighbourhoods where

(TORONTO) — Toronto police said Thursday they’ve recovered the remains of at least six people from planters on a property connected to alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur.
Lead investigator Det. St. Hank Idsinga said the remains, found on property McArthur used as storage in exchange for doing the landscaping, included some from one of the five men McArthur is already charged with killing, Andrew Kinsman.
McArthur was arrested Jan. 18 and charged with two counts of murder in connection with the disappearances of Kinsman and Selim Esen, two men last seen in the “Gay Village” district of Toronto. Not long after that, he was charged with the murders of three more men and police said they were on a wide search for other possible victims.
Idsinga said police expect to lay more charges.
Authorities have checked at least 30 other places where the landscaper was known to have worked, including some of Toronto’s

TORONTO (AP) — Toronto police said Monday they have charged an alleged serial killer with three more deaths, bringing the total to five.
And police believe there are more victims.
Bruce McArthur was charged earlier this month with first-degree murder in the presumed deaths of Selim Esen and Andrew Kinsman, both reported missing from Toronto’s gay village area at separate times last year. Toronto Det. Sgt. Hank Idsinga said Monday that the 66-year-old Toronto landscaper has been charged with three more counts of first degree murder.
Idsinga said the dismembered remains of “at least” three victims were found hidden in the bottom of large planters in the backyard of a Toronto home that McArthur used as storage for his landscaping business.
“The city of Toronto has never seen anything like this,” Idsinga said. “It is unprecedented and draining. He’s an alleged serial killer and he’s taken some steps to cover his tracks.”

A Florida woman has been arrested after her boyfriend was found shot to death with his arms and legs cut off — the second time one of her boyfriends has died violently.
The News-Journal Online reports that Volusia County authorities have arrested Nelci Tetley, 67, and charged her with first-degree murder in the death of Jeffrey Albertsman, 55.
Albertsman’s partially dismembered body was reportedly found in his Daytona Beach home on July 26, after an unidentified friend and her husband went to check on him. The couple notified police when they noticed the smell of rotting corpse.
But only part of his corpse was in the house. According to a coroner report obtained by the newspaper, Albertsman was killed by a gunshot wound to the chest. His legs and arms had been removed and were found 20 miles away.
“Something like this is not common,” Daytona Beach Police Chief Craig Capri told reporters in a

GOOCHLAND, Va. (AP) – Police say a Glen Allen, Virginia, woman was mauled to death by her two pit bulls.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports Bethany Lynn Stephens’ body was found by Goochland County deputies around 8:18 p.m. Thursday in a wooded area.
The Washington Post reports it was Stephens’ father who found her after she had been missing for about a day since she left to walk her dogs and went looking for her in the woods.
Goochland County Sheriff James Agnew says her body was being guarded by two very large pit bulls.
There are photos of Stephens on her Facebook page with a brindle pitbull, one she had written was named “Tonka.”
Initial reports from the medical examiner’s office said Stephens had a cause of death “consistent with being mauled by these dogs.”
She had defensive wounds on her hands and arms. Agnew says it took deputies hours

TAMPA, Fla. – Police and federal agents with rifles checked car trunks, banged on doors and gathered forensic evidence in a Tampa neighborhood Tuesday as they hunted for the killer believed responsible for gunning down four people for no apparent reason in just over a month.
The normally quiet, working-class Seminole Heights section of bungalows and palm trees was sealed off with yellow crime-scene tape after the latest killing in the neighborhood — that of a 60-year-old man who was shot from behind as he crossed a street

A Baton Rouge police officer found instructions for searching the web anonymously through a “state of the art cryptography tool” during a search of accused killer Kenneth Gleason’s house, according to warrants filed Thursday.
Gleason, who is white, is accused of killing two black men and shooting at the home of a black family who lived down the street, all within the same week. He was identified as a suspect after the final shooting on Sept. 14 and booked on first-degree murder counts days later. Baton Rouge police initially said the killings may have been racially motivated, but haven’t elaborated on any motive since Gleason’s arrest.
An attorney has said Gleason “vehemently denies guilt.”
During the initial searches of Gleason’s Sandy Ridge Drive home on Sept. 16 and Sept. 17, investigators found three computers, a green notebook and other items. They returned on Sept. 27 to look for any DVDs, thumb drives, USBs or any other
