The grieving parents of Lauren Spierer brought in New York Detective Bo Dietl to be one of the front men to investigate their daughter’s disappearance. But now, Dietl is also the front man for Arby’s.
He says he’s,"slicing up the truth about freshness."
"Watch the commercial," Dietl said."The choice is exactly the choice, fresh sliced or not fresh sliced."
The commercial questions the freshness of the turkey on Subway sandwiches. Dietl said he investigated the company and found out they slice the turkey at a plant in Iowa.
"What does that have to do with anything?" Dietl said. "I'm a detective."
But, Fox59 also asked if it seemed weird to be on televisions throughout the state pushing Arby’s while the Spierer family is counting on him to find out what happened to their daughter.
"No, no I also investigate some of the largest mass murders. What does one thing have to do with the other one?" Dietl said.
This comes on the heels of Deitl calling Bloomington’s Police Chief Gomer Pyle.
"I met with the chief," Dietl said.
He also apologized.
Dietl also said he’s got boots on the ground in Indiana looking for answers for the Spierers.
"These are the best detectives in the world," Dietl said."They're working the case day to day. We are actively as we speak now, actively involved with Spierer with two of my detectives, actively involved with it right as we speak."
He said he has emotional ties for the family and is hoping for a break.
"They had all these boys that were there and somebody knows something and we're hoping that someone feels for the family to get some kind of closure for the family," Dietl said.
And, as for the commercial, Dietl said it’s not a big deal.
"They asked me to do a screen test," Dietl said. "I got it of course. I'm very believable. I have a good Q rating that people believe when I say something."
