Toronto Tunnel Mystery Solved: Two Men Dug It for 'Personal Reasons'

By    |   Monday, 02 Mar 2015 05:05 PM

The builders of a mysterious 33-foot, hand-dug tunnel near where the Pan American games will be held in Toronto this summer have been identified.

Police announced Monday that two men were building the tunnel for reasons that aren’t clear but appear to have satisfied police.

"The two men told investigators they built the tunnel for personal reasons," Toronto police said, according to Reuters. "Investigators have verified their account and are satisfied there was neither criminal intent nor any threat to the people or city of Toronto. The investigation is concluded."

The tunnel, big enough to allow an adult to stand up, was discovered in mid-January. At the time, some concerns were expressed about terrorism or other criminal possibilities, something that police told Reuters was apparently not the intent of those who dug it out.

NPR reported that the tunnel
"contained a gas-powered generator, moisture-resistant light bulbs, and food and beverage containers." Tools were found inside, along with a wheelbarrow and pulley system, a rosary, and a Remembrance Day poppy.

Despite initial concerns, people very quickly went online to express their funny interpretations of what the tunnel might be.





Even author Stephen King got into the guessing game:
