Police have identified another Toronto property they’re interested in searching. “But it really was dependent whether or not we found anything here,” Idsinga said. “We’re going to wait for the weather to get a bit warmer, do some further forensic testing and decide whether we’re going to dig there or not.”
They have a few more tips to follow up on from individuals that believe they may have planters from McArthur in their possession, but not many. “It’s quieted down a little bit,” Idsinga said.
Meanwhile, the still-frosty weather has put a strain in particular on the police dogs working on the case. “With the dogs, they just don’t work that well when everything is frozen,” Idsinga said.
Investigators may revisit all the properties flagged in the investigation when the spring thaw hits, he told the Star.

Metro Police say the same gunman is responsible for fatally shooting two homeless men and wounding two other people in the past nine days.
Three of the four victims were homeless, and the other, who was shot in Logandale, about 60 miles north of Las Vegas, was by himself outside a convenience store when the gunman opened
The suspected serial killer charged with murdering five gay men, and feared to have killed many more committed an attack so violent that he was banned from a swathe of Toronto known as its ‘gay village,’ almost two decades earlier, DailyMailTV reveals Monday.
Court records seen by DailyMailTV disclose that Bruce McArthur was not only known to Toronto police, but that the man now charged with slaying and dismembering at least five men had a record of a brutal attack on a gay man.
As police in Tornoto admit they have no idea where McArthur’s suspected death toll will climb to, it raises the specter of a reign of violence against members of the city’s gay community stretching back decades.
Rumors of a serial killer have stalked Toronto’s gay community, leading to anger at cops’ apparent failure to take concerns seriously until all too recently.
As police continue their search of properties that alleged Toronto serial killer Bruce McArthur accessed in the course of his work as a landscaper, the news coverage has centred on the fact that police are investigating at least 30 properties for evidence.

A Riverdale church has organized a candlelight vigil for the presumed victims of alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur.
The vigil is being held at the Metropolitan Community Church near Gerrard Street and Carlaw Avenue at 7 p.m. on Sunday.
According to a press release, the vigil is being held to provide those who are grieving with a place for “contemplation, community prayer and support.

The victims identified by police to date include Andrew Kinsman, Salim Esen, Majeed Kayhan, Soroush Mahmudi, and Dean Lisowick.
“The LGBTQ community is obviously deeply affected by this. A lot of people in the community can see themselves in the faces of the victims but this isn’t just an LGBTQ issue, it is affecting the entirety of the City of Toronto,” Reverend Jeff Rock told CP24 on Saturday. “We want
Toronto Det. Sgt. Hank Idsinga said at a news conference that 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, 66, used as storage for his landscaping business. He said the remains have not been identified.
