Bruce McArthur, believed ‘not dangerous’ by Toronto Police turns out to be a serial killer targeting LGBT communities

July 2, 2018 | Brainwave Science


66-years-old Bruce McArthur from Canada was arrested and charged with 8 murders earlier this year. Most of victims’ dismembered body parts were found hidden inside planters belonging to the suspect.

Nearly two decades before his recent arrest he pleaded guilty in the 2001 beating of a male prostitute. According to a psychological assessment, his risk for violence was ‘very minimal’. Bruce McArthur had pleaded guilty to assault in that case but received no jail time and was granted a pardon.

But the investigation into his alleged serial killings for last 8 years has expanded. It includes more than 75 properties in the Toronto area where the suspect did some landscaping work. Besides, the police have also reopened 15 cold cases of missing persons from Toronto’s Gay Village dating back to 1975 for possible links to McArthur.


McArthur’s case becomes a real challenge for Canadian police. A  targeted number of accusations against him show that modern methods that are used by authorities are to some extent powerless in the war against serial killers. Nowadays, the police must be prepared to defend their own interests as well as be equipped to protect their people. But this case proves that the law enforcement system must upgrade some of their solutions and technologies as soon as possible.


It’s obvious that it’s not so easy to prevent and solve criminals’ plans. Moreover, most of the means used by the police are often limited. For example, DNA is available in only in 1-2% of all cases and accuracy of a lie detector tests are all over the place. It is very important to find a technology that can determine with high accuracy who is really involved in committing a crime.



Every day criminals are getting smarter and have better tools to evade police. Law enforcement agencies need to pace themselves up to address such crimes. iCognative by Brainwave Science is the name that should be a welcome change in this fight that can help law enforcement in their quest to capture killers with a new force.


iCognative technology can determine whether specific information is stored in the person’s brain by measuring and recording brainwaves. The technology identifies criminals in most of the crimes with its invaluable technique. iCognative can be successfully applied in solving any crime with a lack of physical evidence.


According to details of McArthur’s case, iCognative can help the police gain more information about his involvement in crimes and his motives. In order to do that, a test case can be built with the confidential information that is known only to the person that committed these crimes. The investigative agent will input such information into the iCognative system in the form of pictures, words and phrases, which can be done in 15 to 30 minutes.

In this case, we can use, for example, the dates of crimes, locations, names and pictures of victims, pictures of places where dismembered body parts were hidden etc. but provided that such details are confidential. Such details of crimes will be input in to the system as stimuli to show to the suspect/s. This stimulus will be flashed on a computer monitor to the suspect one after another and brain responses for each stimulus is captured by the technology and store in a database. These brain responses will be analyzed by the software and will determine with 99.9% accuracy if the information is present or absent in the brain of the suspect. In this way, we don’t need any verbal reaction from the suspect, all the required information captured from the brain and brain does not know how to lie.

By use of iCognative technology, law enforcement agencies can solve such crimes faster saving their efforts and resources. This potent technology has the capability to be extremely powerful in the war against criminals.
