In 2012, a Canadian man, who went only by the online username Chefmate 50, told Swiss man Markus Dubach that he had experience cannibalizing men. Dubach took that chat seriously and forwarded it to police. When Toronto Police received the tip, they launched the unprecedented task force Project Houston - which had three missing men at its centre. Skanda Navaratnam, Basir Faizi and Majeed Kayhan were all included as potential victims. And in April 2013, now-retired Toronto police Det.-Sgt Deb Harris and another officer flew all the way to Bern, Switzerland to interview Dubach about his tip in person. W5’s Avery Haines met Dubach in the same Swiss restaurant where he first met with Toronto Police five years ago.
