Tim BosmaOntario, Canada – Ontario police are asking for the public’s help in locating 32-year-old Timothy Bosma, who was last seen Monday after taking two men for a test drive in the pickup truck he was trying to sell online.

Bosma was reported missing by his wife Monday night after he never returned home from meeting two men interested in buying his black 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 diesel pickup with the Ontario licence number 726 7ZW.  On Thursday afternoon, police found Bosma’s cellphone in an industrial complex in west Brantford.

Police were able to track the cellphone they believed the suspects used to contact Bosma which led them to a man in Etobicoke. He told police he was also selling a truck and had met two men that he took on a test drive. He said the men were suspicious and he found it odd that they arrived at his business on foot. They did not buy the truck, and the man was not harmed.

“He thought it was odd, because of the size of the vehicle. It’s more of a business vehicle than a personal vehicle,” said Det. Sgt. Matt Kavanagh. “Fortunately for this person, he’s a very large individual. I think he would have overpowered the both of them. I think that was his advantage.”

One of the men was described as being in his mid-20s, roughly 6’1” and between 170 and 180 pounds. He had short brown hair and was unshaven. He was wearing jeans and a long sleeve orange shirt with running shoes and having a tattoo – a box framing the word “Ambition” – on one of his wrists  where a watch would normally be. The second man was also described as being in his mid-20s, white, 5-foot-9 to 5-foot-10, small to medium build, dark hair, wearing a red-hooded sweatshirt with the hood pulled up over his head.

Body Of Julie Mott Stolen From Casket At Texas Funeral Home

Police held a press conference on Thursday where Bosma’s wife, Sharlene, made an emotional plea for her husband’s safe return and urged the men involved in his disappearance to think of her daughter and their family.

“He is the love of my life and the father of my child,” said Sharlene. “This does not feel like real life. This only happens in TV and in movies. It does not happen in real life. Tim has been stolen from us. Tim’s world revolves around our daughter. I know she is No. 1 in his mind right now.”

Although this has not been declared a murder investigation, the homicide unit was called in to investigate Tuesday night.When asked if police felt Bosma was still alive, Kavanagh replied, “We always have to hold out hope.” He asked the public call 905-546-2100 with any information regarding Bosma’s disappearance.

A Facebook event has been setup as well, in case you want to keep informed. You can watch the emotional news conference below.

    I hope he is found safe but stuff like this never ends well. 🙁

  • Awesome! Thanks for writing an article! I really hope they find him safe

  • sadly I can only think of one outcome

  • Just because you can only think of one outcome doesn’t mean we shouldn’t hope for another though

  • woooh! canada made it on demon! wooh!…uh, i hope he’s found safe, for real though…

  • Canada is badass…

  • So sad. I hope they find him.

  • Timothy Bosma Missing After Taking Two Men For Test Drive In Truck He Was Selling Online. – http://t.co/l8WH2LDvUK

  • that sucks but i wonder why he wasnt a bit more hesitant to go for a test drive with a couple of strangers?? poor guy 🙁 you know hes dead in a ditch somewhere 🙁

  • MyHovercraftIsFullofEels

    And this is why I will only buy things from people on craigslist but not sell them. Not saying that he used craigslist but the idea is pretty much the same.

  • JohnQknowitall

    This is just totally fucked up. Why wouldn’t the online site have a record of which computers opened his ad? I recall a case where a map of directions to a body dump was gotten from Microsoft’s map site and that was the part of the damning evidence. Also I know about zero people with the described tattoo… I cannot believe the police phone is not ringing off the hook.

  • JohnQknowitall

    I would be careful as both seller and buyer. These guys must have come off as at least pleasant enough or the missing man would not have gotten in the truck… unless he financially needed the money for the truck asap.

  • kimbev69

    They tracked the craigslist killer through ip addresses

  • No matter if your a man or woman if your meeting up with someone online do not meet up without.
    First and foremost protection,a buddy or two just in case,letting someone know where your at, and a meeting in a public location (must have). Kinda sad you can’t trust people,but it’d better to be distrusting and alive then…..dead

  • dildo

    caught by the tattoo

  • Tim is from my hometown 🙁 I am so sad to see this on here.. Hoping for your safe return buddy! your wife and daughter need you!

  • JohnQknowitall

    I think that guy used emails. This could have been an ad requesting a phone call or an email. In any case it is terrifying that what was to be a simple transaction has turned into a potential homicide with a lot of bewilderment for the friends and family of this guy.

  • Ebonyheart

    Bahaha, you’ve obviously never been to Canada. Shit like this doesn’t happen here…only in the movies…or Detroit. 😛

  • Ebonyheart

    It’s a Wale tattoo, a rapper dude from Washington D.C. Made big with his Ambition tour. It’s like the kindergarten crotch – how white dudes in Toronto get cool.

    Police make arrest over Hamilton man who disappeared after taking strangers on test drive

    HAMILTON, Ont. — Police are readying search warrants and say they are entering “critical hours” after the arrest of a suspect in connection with the disappearance of a southwestern Ontario man who went missing after taking two men for a test drive of his truck.

    Hamilton police Supt. Dan Kinsella said that a massive search involving more than 150 police officials has yet to locate Tim Bosma, 32, who vanished Monday night after leaving his Hamilton home with a pair of men who responded to an online ad for his black 2007 Dodge Ram pickup.

    Very sad

    27-year-old Toronto man has been arrested in the investigation into missing
    Ancaster man, Tim Bosma.

    Dellen Millard was taken into custody without incident while
    driving on Cawthra Rd. in Mississauga, Hamilton Police said Saturday.

    “It is believed that Dellen Millard is also the driver in the
    truck incident that took place in Toronto previously,” Supt. Dan Kinsella

    He is charged with forcible confinement and theft over $5,000.
    Millard has been identified as the suspect with the ‘Ambition’ tattoo.

    But Bosma, 32, is still missing. He was last seen last Monday
    night, when he left his home to meet with two men who responded to his online
    ad, posted to sell his black 2007 Dodge Ram pickup truck, license plate 726

    Police remained tight-lipped on details Saturday.

    “Information is being obtained, search warrants being
    prepared, and evidence gathered,” Kinsella said.

    And the search was at a “critical” stage, he said.

    Apparently now it happens in Canada. Even in a country as population large as the United States this is amazingly rare, but it happens.

  • Timothy Bosma: Suspect comes from Toronto flight dynasty

    Dellen Millard, the 27-year-old arrested
    in connection with Tim Bosma’s disappearance, is part of a family that
    once operated a charter airline out of Toronto and has aircraft
    operations in Waterloo.
    he man arrested in
    connection with the disappearance of Hamilton’s Timothy Bosma is the
    heir to an Ontario aviation dynasty and once held the world record for
    the youngest solo helicopter flight.

    Dellen Millard, 27, of
    Toronto, was arrested and charged in Mississauga in connection with
    Bosma’s disappearance Saturday morning. His family founded and ran
    Millard Air, a charter airline that once flew out of Toronto and has
    operations in Waterloo Region, where Hamilton police were seen
    investigating Saturday at Millard Air’s hangar at the airport.

    Toronto police blocked
    off Maple Gate Crt. in Etobicoke Saturday afternoon to investigate a
    house connected to the arrest of Millard. Hamilton police were seen at
    Millard Air Hangar 53 at the Waterloo Regional Airport the same day.

    The Millard family has
    a storied history in Ontario’s aviation industry. Dellen’s grandfather,
    Carl, founded the private commercial airline, the Star reported in

    Wayne Millard,
    Dellen’s father, took the reins on a 50,000-square-foot aircraft
    maintenance facility in Waterloo, according to Canadian Skies, an
    aviation trade publication.

    Wayne died in late
    2012. His obituary, published in the Star, was written by Dellen and
    praises Wayne’s love for animals and commitment to flying.

    In 1999, Dellen became
    the youngest person to fly a helicopter solo at 14 years old, setting a
    world record and earning a free breakfast from the Brampton Flying
    Club. He set another record by taking his first solo flight in a Cessna
    172, making him the youngest to fly both a helicopter and fixed-wing
    plane solo in one day.

    “It was a great
    flight,” he told the Star then, moments after landing the Cessna and
    receiving applause from family members. “It went by a lot faster than I
    thought it would.”

    The Brampton Flying Club refused to comment Saturday, telling the Star a manager would be available Monday.

    “I really thought he
    turned out fine and I’d see him someday at an airline,” said Marilyn
    Daigle, Dellen’s flight instructor in 1999, who’s now a commercial pilot
    in Toronto. “He was sweet, smart, really lovely to teach . . . I just
    hope it doesn’t end up being true.”

    Dellen Millard’s
    passion for planes seems to have been grounded later in life, as he
    turned his attention towards automobiles. He and a friend are listed as
    drivers in the 2009 Baja 1000, an off-road race in Mexico, according to
    the race roster.

    Facebook photos of
    Dellen posted on the friend’s account show him working on vehicles in
    what appears to be an airport hangar. Calls to the friend’s home were
    not returned.

    The other suspect,
    still at large, is described as white, between 5-foot-9 and 5-foot-10,
    with a small to medium build, dark hair. He was last seen wearing a
    red-hooded sweatshirt with the hood pulled up over his head.

    “It is critical that
    we inform you of (Dellen Millard’s) arrest, however it is much more
    important that we continue to pursue every evidentiary lead,” Kinsella
    said Saturday.
    On Friday, police announced they recovered Bosma’s cellphone in an industrial


  • Dellen

  • Digited

    Thank you, Whisper Wing, for doing the follow up work! I’m hoping they find this guy. Grown men don’t often go missing for long. It’s good to know other people care enough to keep an eye on it.

  • np this is by me and I hope they find him safe but sadly thats a rare thing

    just cant figure out the motive

    The Dellen guy came from money
    I’m wondering if there was a long ago vendetta and this was a set up to get him someplace and hurt him
    I don’t know
    I know I over think things but just cant figure a motive

    I did a story in the forums not long ago of a 75 yo man went to the door of a guy that bullied him when they were in grade 5 and he after all these years went there and killed the guy
    so anythings possible

  • He used Kijiji, the Canadian version of Craigslist. And buying is just as risky as selling.

  • Mother of missing Ontario man Tim Bosma pleads for safe return

    ‘My heart is broken,’ says mother of Tim Bosma

    The mother of a missing Ancaster, Ont., man made an emotional Mother’s Day plea for his safe return Sunday.

    “My heart is broken,” said Mary Bosma, mother of Tim Bosma, who has been missing since Monday.

    “On this Mother’s Day, my wish is to get my son home safe with us.”

    Bosma, a 32-year-old father of one who runs a private construction business, went missing after he posted his truck for sale online. Two men came to take the car for a test drive Monday evening and he hasn’t been seen since.

  • Timothy Bosma: Missing truck found in Kleinburg

    Police confirm they found missing man’s truck in Vaughan and have towed it off.

    Police confirmed Sunday night to CP24 that they have found the truck of missing Hamilton man Timothy Bosma in Kleinburg, Ont., where several police cars were parked in front of the home of Madeleine Millard, mother of the man arrested Saturday in connection with Bosma’s disappearance.

    Neighbours reported seeing police tow a large black trailer, believed to contain Bosma’s black 2007 Dodge Ram 3500, out of Tinsmith Court in the early evening.

    Saturday morning, Hamilton Police arrested Dellen Millard, a young pilot, off-road car racer and the inheritor of a family flying company. He was charged with forcible confinement and theft over $5,000.

    Toronto police searched a house owned by Dellen Millard in Etobicoke Saturday and Waterloo police set up a perimeter Sunday around the hangar owned by the family company at the Waterloo airport.


    His mother Mary issued a passionate plea Sunday for her son’s safe return Sunday.

    “This Mother’s Day my prayer and my wish is that Tim will come home safe to his wife and daughter,” she told reporters gathered in front of the Bosma home.

    Fighting to keep her composure as she made a brief statement, Bosma said the family has been going through a very rough and emotional week.

    “We don’t know where he is, if he’s safe and who’s got him. I love him and I miss him so much,” she said. “Even though police have made an arrest, he is still not home with us. My heart is broken, I love him so much.”

  • Tim’s truck was found today… but still no sign of Tim 🙁

  • Truck found, but still no Tim Bosma

    Tim Bosma’s truck has been found, but he is still missing.

    Police hauled a massive tow trailer from Kleinburg to Hamilton Sunday night, after investigators discovered what is believed to be Bosma’s black 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 pickup inside the container.

    Tinsmith Court in Kleinburg was buzzing with police from noon on Sunday, when police swarmed the quiet street where neighbours say Dellen Millard’s mother, Madeleine Burns, lives.

    The trailer had been parked in her driveway since Thursday, next-door neighbour Robert Dimas said.

    Hamilton Police Detective Sergeant Matt Kavanagh and Superintendent Dan Kinsella did not return calls to The Spectator Sunday night, though CP24 reported that police had confirmed to them the truck was found.

    As his mother’s neighbours peered out their windows at the excitement Sunday, Millard, 27, sat in segregation at Barton Street Jail in Hamilton, facing charges of forcible confinement and theft over $5,000.


  • My thoughts exactly. How horrible for his family.

  • Missing Ontario man, Tim Bosma, found dead

    An Ontario man who mysteriously went missing more than a week ago has been found dead.

    Hamilton Police Chief Glenn De Caire announced the death of Tim Bosma, a 32-year-old father, on Tuesday, saying investigators had recovered human remains.

    “We are convinced by the totality of the evidence that these are the remains of Tim Bosma,” he said. “The evidence indicates that the remains have been burned.”
    Mr. Bosma’s family is devastated by the news, said Peter Lowe, a family friend.

    “The agony in this house is indescribable,” he wrote on a Facebook page set up to help find Mr. Bosma that was flooded with condolence messages. “There will be no further updates from this page. My prayers are with this wonderful family.”

    At the family’s home in rural Ancaster, just outside Hamilton, a dozen cars sat outside, most with missing posters still taped to their rear windows. People could be seen leaving the back door and walking slowly among the corn fields. Neighbours said they would miss the outgoing young dad who they remember for once visiting on Hallowe’en with his baby girl dressed as a pumpkin.

    Police officers on Tuesday were searching a large rural property in Ayr, south of Kitchener, that records show suspect Dellen Millard bought two years ago for $835,000.

    Investigators searched an aircraft hangar owned by Mr. Millard, the 27-year-old heir to his family aviation dynasty, at the Region of Waterloo International Airport on Monday.

    Mr. Millard faces charges of forcible confinement and theft over $5,000. Police are still seeking a second suspect.

    Millards home they are searching is a $900.000.00 k home so what the hell unless like I said earlier an old vendetta


    Hamilton-area father Tim Bosma found dead, Dellen Millard faces charges

    HAMILTON – An Ancaster man missing since last
    week was targeted by a group of men and murdered, Hamilton Police say.

    Tim Bosma, 32, disappeared after taking two men out to test drive his pickup
    truck May 6. Police confirmed Tuesday his body was found burned beyond

    Det.-Sgt. Matt Kavanaugh said investigators believe Bosma was targeted but
    would not discuss a motive.

    “Police are concentrating their efforts to identify the other suspects
    involved in this murder investigation,” Kavanaugh told a packed press

    He said Bosma and the two men were followed in his truck by another vehicle
    when they left his Ancaster home Monday night.

    Kavanaugh said Dellen Millard, the 27-year-old suspect already charged with
    forcible confinment and theft over $5,000 in connection to Bosma’s
    disappearance, will be charged Wednesday with first-degree murder.

    Police also confirmed Bosma’s 2007 black Dodge Ram 3500 was found in a
    trailer in Kleinburg


  • Its not posted yet but when they left in the truck for the test drive there was a car full of men that followed
    According to the news they are still looking for them

  • Tim Bosma murder: Motive still unknown, police say

    HAMILTON – Hamilton Police Det.-Sgt. Matt Kavanaugh had to break the news to Sharlene Bosma that her husband will never be coming home to her and their two-year-old daughter.

    But he still can’t tell the distraught widow why.

    “I don’t know the motive at this time,” Kavanaugh said Wednesday.

    The charred remains of Ancaster’s Tim Bosma, who disappeared just over a week ago, have been found 50 kilometres away on a farm owned by a man now accused of killing him.

    Waterloo Regional Police cordoned off the sprawling rural property on Roseville Rd., just west of Cambridge, late Tuesday and held the crime scene for Hamilton Police after learning a portable incinerator was spotted in a field.

    Hours later, investigators’ worst fears were realized as they confirmed remains found at the grisly scene were that of the missing 32-year-old.

    Officers spent Tuesday gathering evidence at the farm, reportedly bought two years ago for $835,000 by Dellen Millard, 27, who will be formally charged with first-degree murder on Wednesday. He had been in custody on charges of forcible confinement and theft over $5,000 charges.

    A green tent was erected to protect the scene at the edge of a field just inside a tree line, believed to be the same spot where a neighbour spotted the incinerator.

    “It’s very sad,” said Cambridge resident Rita Lanoie, who stopped by the farm.

    Police are hunting for at least two others in Bosma’s slaying and they also continue to search an aviation hanger in Waterloo, where the accused operated his family’s business, Millardair.

    Millard is seen on the Facebook profile of Andrew Michalski, a friend who has been the subject of intense online scrutiny. They appear together in numerous photos working on vehicles in the family’s hanger.

  • Tim Bosma murder: Six unanswered questions

    There are more questions than answers surrounding the death of Tim Bosma, a 32-year-old churchgoing Ancaster resident.

    Police have arrested one person, Dellen Millard, 27, and charged him with first-degree murder, meaning police believe there was planning involved in Bosma’s slaying.

    What is known is that on May 6, two men arrived in foot to test drive Bosma’s black 2007 Dodge Ram pickup truck that was advertised online.

    One of the online sites Bosma used to advertise his truck was Kijiji. However, Kijiji has said that Bosma’s ad did not feature any personal information nor did the ad receive any replies.

    Here’s a statement from Kijiji, in essence saying that “the incident did not occur as result of his ad posting on Kijiji.”

    Bosma went for a test drive with them and he didn’t return home, leading police on a search for him and his truck.

    Dellen Millard plans to enter not guilty plea, lawyer says

    Tim Bosma was ‘targeted,’ police say

    More questions than answers as community mourns Ancaster father Tim Bosma

    Police say Bosma’s truck was targeted and that surveillance footage shows that another vehicle trailed Bosma when he took the two suspects for a test drive.

    Police also say they believe three suspects were involved in the murder: Two who went for a test drive with Bosma and at least one individual in the trailing vehicle.

    Police have executed several search warrants, including two for properties in the Waterloo region. Bosma’s badly burned remains were found in Waterloo.

    Through phone records, police said they discovered the same two men who test drove Bosma’s truck approached a man in Etobicoke, Ont., May 6 to test drive a similar vehicle. That man was returned safely.

    Here are some of the outstanding questions in the case:

    1. What was the motivation for the slaying?

    2. How did he die? Was he murdered before his body was burned?

    3. Who are the other people involved and how were they connected to the accused, Dellen Millard?

    4. Police say Bosma was targeted. Was this personal or was he targeted for his truck only?

    5. What were the circumstances around a similar test drive in Etobicoke the day before Bosma disappeared and how are the two cases connected?

    6. If the suspects did not find Bosma through Kijiji, did they find him through another online site where he posted the ad? Kijiji says the ad posted by Bosma did not contain any personal information nor did his ad get any replies.http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2013/05/15/tim_bosma_murder_five_unanswered_questions.html

  • Tim Bosma’s murder may have been ‘thrill kill’: Source

    TORONTO – Police are now considering a “thrill kill” as a possible motive for the mysterious slaying of Tim Bosma.

    “It is seriously being looked at,” said one police source. “There is a theory that it was about stealing a truck but also hurting somebody.”

    Stealing the truck is definitely also part of it.

    “There was an obsession over that truck,” the copper said. “But there is potentially more since it could have easily been stolen anywhere.”

    Instead, there was a staged event.

    “Twisted would be the word,” an officer said.

    Police are looking into a small, “close-knit group of friends” that hung around together.

    Dellen Millard,[….]was part of that group.

    “Social media was a big part of their activities,” the source said.

    One clue at the rural scene where the remains of slain 32-year-old Bosma were found was a portable farm incinerator, used to cremate dead farm animals.

    “It’s like a crematorium,” the officer said. “How his body was disposed of would make the hair on the back of anyone’s neck curl up.”


  • A disturbing possible motive for the murder of Tim Bosma has surfaced – Hamilton Police are reportedly considering the possibility the 32-year-old’s murder was a “thrill kill.”

    A report in the Toronto Sun on Thursday quotes police sources suggesting investigators are seriously considering the possibility, and are looking into a small group of friends that spent time together and used social media as part of their activities.

    27-year-old Dellen Millard, charged with first-degree murder, was part of that group. They do not believe Bosma was involved with this group in any way before his disappearance and death.

    The paper reports one clue uncovered by investigators where the 32-year-old Bosma’s remains were found was a portable farm incinerator, used to cremate dead farm animals.

    Police are also taking another look into previous deaths. For example, Dellan Millard’s father died last December from a gunshot wound to the eye.

    Police originally believed it was a suicide, but the coroner may be asked to take another look into his death.

    In other developments, Kijiji has made its first statement on the story.

    Officials with the popular classifieds website are downplaying any potential role the site may have had in Bosma’s disapperance. In a statement, Kijiji argues that the murder suspects would not have been able to contact Tim Bosma through its site, because he did not reveal any personal information on the site.

    According to the public statement, “the incident did not occur as a result of his ad posting on Kijiji.”

    A user can choose after posting an ad on Kijiji whether or not they would like to display personal information. People interested in your ad can contact you by replying through Kijiji itself, but the website says nobody responded to Bosma’s ad in that way.

  • Tim Bosma: Ancaster man was killed inside truck, source says

    Days before the body of Tim Bosma was discovered, Hamilton police speculated that he may have been murdered in a so-called thrill kill, a source has told the Star.

    Days before the body of Tim Bosma was discovered, Hamilton police speculated that he may have been murdered in a so-called thrill kill, a source has told the Star.

    The source, who is not involved in the investigation, said police were considering that theory after Dellen Millard, 27, was arrested on May 11 in Mississauga.

    But the lead investigator in the case denied that police were looking at the possibility the homicide may have been just for a thrill.

    “I don’t know the motive for this,” Det. Sgt. Matt Kavanagh said Thursday. “I don’t even know what thrill kill means. It’s not been discussed. Where it’s coming from, I don’t know.”

    Also according to the source, police said after Bosma’s body was found that they believed he was killed in his truck following a struggle.

    “He did not die in the fire,” the source said. “He didn’t burn alive.”

    Kavanagh told a news conference on Tuesday that Bosma’s body was found burned “beyond recognition” at an undisclosed location in Waterloo.

    Since Sunday, police have been combing a Waterloo Region farm owned by Millard, where an incinerator was found, Kavanagh confirmed to the Hamilton Spectator. It is not known if the machine was used to burn Bosma’s body.


  • Missing woman’s last call was to Dellen Millard, ex-boyfriend says

    The ex-boyfriend of a missing woman says the last call she made was to Dellen Millard, the suspect charged in the death of Tim Bosma.

    Toronto police confirmed Friday that they are investigating the case of Laura Babcock, 23, in connection with Millard.
    Shawn Lerner, whose relationship with Babcock ended in January 2012, told the Star that Babcock’s last call from her cellphone was to Millard.
    Millard, 27, of Etobicoke is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Bosma. The 32-year-old Ancaster man disappeared May 6 after posting his Dodge Ram for sale and taking two men for a test drive.
    Babcockwas last seen in Toronto on June 26, 2012.
    According to Babcock’s phone records, she and Millard exchanged a series of calls which ended July 3, 2012, Lerner told the Star.
    Lerner said Babcock was struggling with depression and looking for a place to live after moving out of her parents’ home.
    He said he confronted Millard on July 27, 2012, with Babcock’s phone records. Millard eventually admitted he had been talking to Babcock, the ex-boyfriend said.

    Lerner said mutual friends told him Millard and Babcock were in a relationship

    Her ex-boyfriend Shawn Lerner described Millard as a “good friend.” Lerner raised red flags with police after he saw phone records showing Millard was the last person called before she disappeared.
    “I immediately was suspicious, I didn’t know the guy well, but I brought it to the police’s attention right away.” Lerner says.
    Toronto’s homicide squad confirmed to CTV News that as far as they were concerned, nothing seemed suspicious about Babcock’s case until Millard was arrested in connection with Tim Bosma’s death last week.
    Meanwhile, Hamilton homicide detectives are also examining a photo gallery posted on a paid adult website credit Dellen Millard as the photographer.
    A profile on Suicide Girls — a soft-core pornography website – shows a young model named “Josie” posing in and around a vintage DC-4 airplane.
    The name on the plane reads “MILLARDAIR.”
    The profile says the photo gallery was posted February 17, 2005.
    Millard took over as CEO of MILLARDAIR, a chartered airline company, after his father’s death. The company was founded by Dellen’s grandfather.
    More than 700 tips have been provided to police since Tim Bosma disappeared May 6 after taking two strangers on a test drive of a pickup truck he had posted for sale online.
    Saturday Millard’s lawyer is saying he may need to ask for a change of venue when the case gets to Superior Court. Paradkar is concerned that with all the different information coming to light his client won’t get a fair trial.


  • Second arrest made in Tim Bosma murder

    Tim Bosma shares the name of “The killer” in a disturbing and gory low-budget music video posted on YouTube.

    Mark Smich, 25, of Oakville will be charged with first-degree murder Thursday morning.

    At a media conference Wednesday afternoon, Hamilton Police Superintendent Dan Kinsella said Smich and Dellen Millard — also charged with first-degree murder in connection with Bosma’s death — do know each other, but he would not say how.

    An undated photo retrieved from Facebook shows Millard and a vintage blue Chevy Nova parked in Smich’s Oakville driveway on Montrose Abbey Drive.

    A YouTube video, titled GHOZTED 2012 FT. MARK.SMICH (FREEUP) (OFFICIAL VIDEO), had comments referencing Bosma’s murder Wednesday, using the hashtag #FREEMARKSMICH.

    The video — produced by Dolo Productions and described as horror art — shows a man appearing to butcher a bloody body in a dimly lit room covered in plastic. A man in the video bears resemblance to the man arrested by Hamilton police.

    The disturbing video lists someone named Mark S. in the credits as “The killer,” but that was changed within hours of the news conference. Soon after, the video was deleted entirely.

    A Twitter account linked to Dolo Productions did not respond to interview requests Wednesday evening. The account was deleted a short time later.

    Police spokesperson Catherine Martin said Wednesday police were aware of the video’s existence, but could not comment. The detective in charge of the case could not be reached for comment.

    Kinsella said Smich is known to police, but he would not elaborate. A man with the same name and age was arrested on a graffiti charge in Oakville late last year.

    Smich was arrested on foot Wednesday morning on Dorval Drive in Oakville just after 10 a.m., one hour before a memorial service for the slain Ancaster man began in Hamilton.

    Neighbour Stephania Capeloa, who lives across the street, said she saw a 10-person tactical team barge through the front door of Smich’s home.

    Capeloa said officers used what looked like tear gas. While she didn’t know Smich personally, she said, “The house always had people out on the front porch.”

    Fanny Colin, another neighbour, told the Oakville Beaver her son-in-law has had problems with Smich and his dog, which she says caused issues when off-leash.

    At the Smich home, a woman who’d sat in a van used by investigators emerged and rushed into the house. She did not answer the door to media. Phone calls to the home were not answered.

    Smich’s father, Andrew Smich, who does not live with his son, told the Toronto Star he only learned of his arrest through media reports and hasn’t had contact with him recently.

    “I’m sorry I cannot say anything,” he said.

    Police are still looking for one more person who was driving Millard’s dark blue Yukon SUV, trailing Bosma’s pickup on the night he went missing.

    On May 6, two men — believed by police to be Millard and Smich — showed up at Bosma’s rural Ancaster home to go for a test drive in his 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 pickup truck he’d been trying to sell online.

    The three pulled out of Bosma’s Trinity Road driveway around 9:30 p.m, with the Yukon trailing behind. They did not return.

    For eight days, friends and family aided police in a massive search for the missing man. Police believe he was killed shortly after the three drove off, his body taken to a location in Waterloo and burned beyond recognition.

    In the wake of Smich’s arrest, Kinsella told the media, “We believe the danger to the public has been arrested, and we believe the danger to the public has subsided as it relates to this case.”

    In addition to Bosma’s death, Toronto homicide detectives are now investigating whether Millard played a role in the death of his father, Wayne, last December. Wayne Millard was reportedly found with a gunshot wound to the left side of his head.

    Police are also exploring possible links between Millard and his former girlfriend, who disappeared last year. Laura Babcock, 23, of Toronto was last seen in early July. She also went by the name Elle Ryan.

    From the beginning, police have said Bosma’s truck was the target of this crime — and the seemingly random murder has shaken an entire community.

    Close to 1,800 people came out for a memorial service held for Bosma Wednesday at Carmen’s banquet hall on the east Mountain, where he and his wife Sharlene held their wedding reception just three years ago.

    Friends, family and even strangers crammed into the packed hall to pay their respects. Media filled the parking lot, broadcasting the service to thousands more people across the country who have been touched and heartbroken by Bosma’s story over the past three weeks.

    More than 1,000 voices filled the big hall with song and prayer, as a number of Tim’s closest family members shared stories of their beloved “Uncle Timmy.”

    “I know that he is no longer my Tim,” his wife, Sharlene said — with fewer tears this time, as she joked about her average-guy of a husband.


  • Photo captures Tim Bosma murder suspects together as second accused to plead not guilty

    Mark Daniel Smich, 25, looked gaunt and agitated when brought into court in leg shackles Thursday morning, where he was formally accused of being the second man involved in the high-profile murder case of Tim Bosma.

    When asked to tell the court his name, he said merely “Mark.” After prompting to provide his full name, he dismissively added “Smich.” Some spectators thought they saw minor wounds on his face.

    Outside court, his lawyer, Thomas Dungey, said his client disputes the allegations.

    “At this point, Mr. Smich will be pleading not guilty and we will be defending this case vigorously,” he said, before declining to answer any questions.

    In sharp contrast to the lawyer of Dellen Millard, Mr. Smich’s co-accused, who stood before cameras outside court taking reporters’ questions, Mr. Dungey spoke only off-camera and, in an unusual move, asked police to escort him out of the courthouse and past waiting media.

    InstagramMark Smich is the second suspect charged with first-degree murder in the death of Tim Bosma, a Hamilton father who took two men on a test drive and never returne

    Mr. Smich, of Oakville, Ont., offers a contrast to his co-accused in many ways.

    Mr. Millard, 27, is the sole heir to an aviation dynasty and has no criminal record. Mr. Smich has a string of criminal convictions.

    He was twice convicted for drug possession, in 2005 and in 2006, twice for failure to comply with a court order, and a conviction for impaired driving in 2009. He has a pending court date after two men spray-painted graffiti on a highway overpass.

    A rap video from 2012,posted online, shows Mr. Smich play-acting in a gruesome dismemberment scene. Two men are gagged and tied to chairs while Mr. Smich plays a butcher, chopping off body parts in a dimly lit basement.

    The person who posted the video, who says he was the actor portraying the victim, defended Mr. Smich’s character in an online post.

    I have taken [the video] down because the media [is] trying to blow it up as if it’s connected to the Tim Bosma case … Mark is innocent until proven guilty and in my opinion as his friend he is only being pinpointed because he knew Dell. If he is guilty, then he will serve his time and accept his consequence.”

    The Smich family moved from neighbouring Mississauga, Ont., about a decade ago, when his parents split. A young Mr. Smich was often in trouble, said a former friend who did not want to be named.

    “I seen him one day as being in jail or dead,” he said, but he never contemplated such a grievous charge.

    Mr. Smich appears to be the family’s black sheep. His two sisters, both in their 20s, enjoy stable lifestyles with good jobs.

    At the funeral service, Mr. Bosma’s widow and mother of their two-year-old daughter said whoever stole her husband was “evil.”

    “The devil led the vilest form of evil down my driveway and he smiled at me before taking Tim away,” said Sharlene Bosma.

    Accused killers of Tim Bosma avoid eye contact with family members

    Dellen Millard, Mark Smich, accused in Tim Bosma murder, avoid looking at victim’s parents and widow Sharlene

    Oct 22 2013

    HAMILTON ? Accused killers Dellen Millard and Mark Smich avoided eye contact with the parents and widow of murder victim Tim Bosma during emotional court appearances on Tuesday.

    Three dozen family members and friends of Bosma appeared in court to see them at a routine scheduling date.

    No date has been set for the pretrial or trial of the men accused of killing the Ancaster father.

    Bosma’s widow Sharlene and parents sat in the front row of the public gallery, just feet from the two men, each of whom are charged with first degree murder.


    In court on Tuesday, both of the accused men avoided looking in the direction of Bosma’s weeping family members.

    Smich, of Oakville, appeared first in a Plexiglas cubicle in court.

    He wore a powder blue sweater and neatly pressed white business shirt.

    He kept his eyes down as he slumped in his seat.

    After about 10 minutes, he was escorted out of the courtroom.

    Millard, of Oakville, appeared preppy and confident as he was led in by a burly court officer.


    Well-dressed in a black sweater, dress shirt and grey business slacks, he stood with his hands crossed in front of him throughout his five minutes in court.

    Neither of the men spoke in court.

    Both of them appeared considerably tidier than in their original court appearances five months ago, when Smich sported a baggy T-shirt and a black eye.

    After the court appearances, a spokesperson for Bosma’s family said they aren’t familiar with the legal process and plan to attend whenever possible.

    “Sharlene’s going to try to make it to every one she can,” Peter Lowe said.

    The pre-trial for the case is expected to begin in 2014.

    Millard’s lawyer, Deepak Paradkar, said outside the courthouse that he and his client aren’t concerned with a recent report in the Globe and Mail that investigators have found “linkages” in three cases connected to Millard.

    The report stated that an Ontario Provincial Police officer is overseeing a combined probe of Bosma’s murder, the November 2012 death of Millard’s father Wayne Millard and the disappearance of Millard’s former girlfriend, Laura Babcock, 23, in the summer of 2012.

    Wayne Millard’s death was originally considered to be a suicide.

    “Really, he (Millard) doesn’t make anything of it,” Paradkar said.

    “In terms of, me as counsel, we’re focussing on the case that he’s charged with. He hasn’t been charged with anything else. I’m confident that in terms of his father’s investigation, nothing will come of that and I have really no information regarding the other case, the Babcock case, so we really can’t comment on that. We don’t know what the case is about.”

    Man accused of killing Hamilton father now charged in two more deaths
    A Toronto man accused of killing a Hamilton father who disappeared after
    taking a pair of prospective buyers for a test drive has now been
    charged with murder in the death of his own father and another woman.
    Millard has been charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of
    Wayne Millard and Laura Babcock, with whom Dellen was romantically
    Mark Smich is also charged with first-degree murder in Babcock’s death.

    Officers have “attended and spoken with the Babcock family,”
    “We’d ask that the victims’ families be afforded privacy during these very, very difficult times.”

    Millard’s lawyer, Deepak Paradkar, would not comment on the new charges but said he would “defend the case zealously.”

    He had previously dismissed any connection between the three cases as speculation.
    OPP said Thursday they charged Christina Noudga, 21, with being an accessory after the fact in that case.

    Police believe Bosma was killed the same night he went missing, but haven’t said where it happened.
    Millard’s arrest, Toronto police reopened their investigations into his
    father’s 2012 death, which had been ruled a suicide, and Babcock’s
    disappearance, also in 2012.

    Babcock was last seen on June 26 of that year. She was reported missing by her ex-boyfriend two and a half weeks later.

    have said she was involved in the sex trade in the months before she
    went missing but they don’t know if Millard ever used her
