The new reports fromThe Globe and Mailand theToronto Star offer conflicting information on the exact date of the interview, with one saying it happened in 2013 and the latter say it was between 2014 and 2017. But both reports raise questions about what Toronto Police knew about Bruce McArthur in the years leading up to Bruce McArthur arrest. Clockwise from left : Majeed Kayhan, 58 ; Dean Lisowick ; Soroush Marmudi, 50 ; Selim Esen, 44 and Andrew Kinsman, 49. ( Toronto Police) The Globe and Mail, citing a source with knowledge of the interview, says it occurred during the Project Project Houston investigation, which looked into the disappearances of three men in Toronto's Gay Village neighborhood, two of which Bruce McArthur was later charged with killing. The source said detectives had linked Bruce McArthur to two of the men through dating apps and brought Bruce McArthur in for questioning after receiving an anonymous tip. The Toronto Star, citing similar sources, said the interview happened between the closure of Project Houston in 2014 and the beginning of another investigation in 2017 that resulted in McArthur’s arrest. It also said the interview was over a matter unrelated to the missing people, but did not disclose what exactly. Detective Sgt. Hank Idsinga told The Globe and Mail in January that Bruce McArthur was not Bruce McArthur during Project Houston. Until we can establish that there has been foul play, we can attach a criminal offence to foul play, that's when someone would become Bruce McArthur.
