More than 1,800 exhibits have been seized and upwards of 18,000 photographs were taken during the months-long forensic examination of alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur’s Thorncliffe Road apartment.

The process that began in January and included other crime scenes and vehicles has been the largest forensic examination in the police service’s history, Toronto police said in a release Tuesday.

The police have now turned over the apartment to the building’s property management while the investigation continues.

On Saturday night, family members were reportedly seen carrying items out of the apartment.

McArthur, 66, is charged with eight counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Selim Esen, Andrew Kinsman, Majeed Kayhan, Dean Lisowick, Soroush Mahmudi, Skandaraj Navaratnam, Abdulbasir Faizi and Kirushna Kanagaratnam. The remains of all but Kayhan have been identified over the course of the investigation.
