Bruce McArthur is allegedly poised to join a sickening rogues gallery of monsters and madmen.
The 66-year-old landscaper has already been accused of sewing a harvest of death among the city’s gay community, with three more first-degree murder charges laid on Monday.
While none of the allegations have been proven in court — with at least five alleged victims — he may be the most prolific gay serial killer in Canadian history.
“This is totally beyond anything I’d feared,” author and longtime crime observer James Dubro told the Toronto Sun. “We could be talking Gacy and Dahmer territory here.”
Cops said Monday they are searching at 30 locations across the city looking body parts that were frequently buried in the bottom of planters.
John Wayne Gacy went on a 10-year jag of murder, preying on young males in the Chicago area in the 1970s and 1980s.
Detectives believe Gacy — a Democratic Party mover who often dressed as a clown — was responsible for more than 30 slayings.
The state of Illinois executed Gacy in 1993. His final words were: “Kiss my ass.”
Over a 13 year period, Jeffrey Dahmer raped, tortured, murdered and dismembered 17 men and boys in the Milwaukee area.
Later murders involved cannibalism, necrophilia and the preservation of his victims’ remains. He was bludgeoned to death in a prison shower on Nov. 28, 1994. His killer told guards: “God told me to do it.”
Dubro said like the above killers, the allegations suggest McArthur — a 66-year-old grandfather and one-time mall Santa — was “very prolific.”
The author noted that even if the victims did not reside in the Village, they were frequent fliers in the popular hub of LGBTQ life. And that provided a target-rich environment for an alleged serial killer.
“If you’re looking for a certain kind of person into certain things, you will find them there,” he added.
What nearly all the victims may have had in common was the desire to keep their gay lives on the down low.
Three of the five dead men were also immigrants who looked Middle Eastern — cultures that aren’t always accepting when it comes to homosexuality.
“This is like nothing we’ve ever seen,” Dubro said, adding, “and I think it’s a long way from being finished.”
