According to CBC News, the set of remains were discovered in a garden planter at a Mallory Crescent home McArthur had worked at, though they have yet to be identified. 

Police have been searching properties McArthur had worked at for remains after having found at least six other sets of remains, three of which were identied as belonging to Soroush Marmudi, Andrew Kinsman and Skandaraj Navaratnam.

Detective Sergeant Hank Idsinga previously revealed that around 20 planters had been seized from properties McArthur had worked at across the city. 

McArthur was arrested and charged with the murders of two men in January, before being charged with the murders of four more men whose remains were found in the garden planters.

Police also revealed that they had found a naked man chained to a radiator on the morning of McArthur's arrest.
