Bruce McArthur murder investigation unusual with missing bodies, expert says .
An organized killer is one who leaves no body behind — making a murder investigation all the more challenging for police and prosecutors, an expert says. Thomas Hargrove, founder and chairman of the U.S.-based Murder Accountability Project, told the Star that an unrecovered body, or bodies, “speaks to a very organized killer.” Hargrove spoke to the Star on Wednesday, several days after the arrest of Bruce McArthur, 66, who has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Andrew Kinsman, 49, and Selim Esen, 44. The bodies of Kinsman and Esen have not been found. At a news conference last Thursday, police said they believe there are more victims. Hargrove said there are both organized and disorganized killers, with disorganized killers tending to be more opportunistic and “they kill when they can.” “Often they don’t own cars because nobody would sell them a car or allow them to have a driver’s licence.” Disorganized killers disproportionately have mental illness or mental challenges, he added. But organized killers are different, Hargrove explained. “They plan. They look for victims — they can still be opportunistic — but they look for particular victims and they make a plan to avoid detection and capture.” Hargrove described murder investigations where no body has been found as “devilishly hard to solve.” The murder charges against McArthur haven’t been tested in court. “It’ll be a difficult case to get a conviction on.
