Justin Ling: Reporting on Toronto's Serial Killer

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Last year, Bruce McArthur received a life sentence for each of the eight men who'd gone missing in Toronto's Church and Wellesley village, an LGBTQ community. From the first missing case to sentencing it took nine years to wrap this case. Why did it take so long to investigate, apprehend, charge, and sentence a serial killer in Toronto? Investigative journalist Justin Ling spent a good part of that near-decade reporting on the case. He talks to Steve Paikin about his book, "Missing in the Village: The Story of Serial Killer Bruce McArthur, the Search for Justice, and the System That Failed Toronto's Queer Community."
