Police will hold a live news conference Monday at 10:30 a.m.in the media gallery at headquarters at which they are expected to announced that the remains of a seventh person has been found in a planter related to Bruce McArthur.
McArthur was charged with the first of six first-degree murder counts, in the case of Navaratnam, on February 23.
Cops say they were reluctant to release the photo - of a dark-skinned man in his early 40s - but had run out of options in identifying him.
He said they realize how hard it might be for a relative or friend to see the picture and realize the man is deceased.
In a rare move, police also released a photograph of a man who they believe is a victim of McArthur's.
"As I have stated before, these remains are of individuals who have been dismembered", said Idsinga. "It's obviously a key piece of evidence that we have that we're releasing, but we do feel that by releasing it hopefully we can identify him and close off that area of investigation".
Idsinga wouldn't say when investigators got the photo or how it came into their possession, only that it was through the course of their probe. At present Mr McArthur faces six charges of murder. In February, he was also charged in the death of Skandaraj Navaratnam.
"At this time, the cause of deaths are pending further studies", Mr Pollanen said. "This is through teamwork because we need to utilise many different scientific disciplines - pathology, antrophology, dentistry, fingerprints, all of these different modalities are integrated together to understand what's happened".
