More suspects sought in Tim Bosma slaying

Suspect in custody to be charged with 1st-degree murder

Police are seeking more suspects in the slaying of Tim Bosma, the Hamilton man who was the subject of an intense search after he went missing after taking two men on a road test in the truck he was selling.

Det. Sgt. Matt Kavanagh of the Hamilton police told a news conference Tuesday afternoon that Bosma's remains had been found and were “burned beyond recognition.”

Police say they believe he was killed on the night he disappeared, but did not yet know exactly how he died or where.

"I don't know the motive at this time," Kavanagh said.

Bosma, 32, from the Hamilton community of Ancaster, went missing more than a week ago after he accompanied two men on a test drive of the truck he had posted for sale on Kijiji. Now, police are zeroing in on a farm near Cambridge, Ont., that they believe is linked to Bosma's death and searching for a second vehicle that followed the truck on the test drive.

At a press conference Tuesday afternoon, police said they intend to charge Dellen Millard, 27, of Toronto, with first-degree murder on Wednesday. Millard was initially charged with forcible confinement and theft over $5,000 after being arrested on Saturday.

Kavanagh wouldn't say if Millard is co-operating with police, and told reporters that police are still searching for at least two more suspects.
