Following up on yesterday's post, the bizarre dungeon house and the conveniently timed fire.....
Aangirfan had done a brief post on this story. In that post is contained this little tidbit.
Before I get to that, let me place the video here that is contained in the preceding post.
This video was shot by a photographer for the Toronto Star. Who was on the receiving end of a "welcome wagon" when he shot the video.
Contained within this article, is the response to the intrepid reporters investjgation
" the suspicious eye of a roving government-hired security guard, who, along with four police officers, rushed to the area to deal with a curious Star reporter Tuesday morning."
It was a given that after the containment room/dungeon was found in the abandoned home, security would or should have appeared. I would assume 24 hour, round the clock security, would have been undertaken at the house.
After all, one would think that there would be a great deal of interest in who had constructed the dungeon. Therefore surveillance would be undertaken to see who comes and goes from the house.
Where was the surveillance the night the house burned down to it's foundation?
Isn't it odd that no one saw anything, or reported that the house was burning until it was very nearly gone. Where was the private security? Where were the police?

A fire has destroyed an abandoned farmhouse in Pickering that was the subject of a police investigation after a “confinement room” was discovered inside in November.
The fire reportedly started around 12 a.m. Friday at the 136-year-old farmhouse on Concession Road 7 at the York-Durham Line.
Durham Regional Police made an appeal for tips last month after contractors discovered a recently-built “confinement room” in the basement of the empty house that was slated for demolition. The workers alerted police who opened an investigation.
The first officers to arrive at the scene after the bizarre discovery was made in late November believed the room was built for the sole purpose of keeping someone captive.
Here is the report of the discovery from the Durham Regional Police
Is it interesting to note the gap in time from the date of discovery by the demolition person and notification of the police, to the date the police go public with the information.
Nearly a three week gap. Therefore the police had abundant time to investigate and gather evidence.....Or undertake other actions, as necessary.

Investigators are asking the public for assistance in locating the person(s) responsible for building a confinement-style room in an abandoned home in northwest Pickering.
On November 29, 2011, contractors surveying an abandoned residence on Concession Road 7 in northwest Pickering discovered recent construction had taken place in the basement of the residence. As the abandoned residence is slated for demolition, the contractor contacted Durham Regional Police.
