Santa Claus: The Serial Killer "Bodies in the Garden" 6 November 2022: Episode 2 on BBC Three 11

Journalist Mobeen Azhar continues his investigation into the story behind the murders of eight men in Toronto.

On a wintery morning in 2018, police made a chilling discovery. Nestled in the garden of a quaint house in deep suburbia were answers to the mysterious cases of men that had gone missing in the city.

Mobeen heads to what became an unprecedented crime scene and is granted access to this crucial location by the homeowners. They are still dealing with the aftermath of police knocking on their door looking for bodies.

The case of this prolific serial killer never went to full trial, and Mobeen, like a lot of people in the city, has unanswered questions. Why did Bruce McArthur, a shopping mall Santa Claus, choose a couple’s garden as his burial site? After he’s confronted by the traumatic end to the victims’ lives, Mobeen takes his investigation back to the start. What made McArthur single out these men? Two sources linked to the village suggest the killer might have been targeting strangers. Mobeen tracks down friends of the first-known victim, Skandaraj Navaratnam, who was murdered way back in 2010.
