Tim Bosma of Hamilton, Ontario, was a successful businessman and happily married young father until he put his truck up… for sale online, went for a test drive with two strangers, and never returned. His disappearance and the murder investigation that followed played out on social media and in the headlines over several weeks in spring 2013. His heartbroken family made futile pleas for his return. Weeks later, two men were arrested for Bosma's murder, a petty criminal named Mark Smich, and Dellen Millard, the heir of an aviation millionaire. Disturbingly, there appeared to be no motive for the gruesome killing of Bosma, whose charred remains were found on Millard's farm. It seemed to be a cold-blooded "thrill kill" carried out by what some would deem a psychopath, and his sidekick. But there was even more to the grisly story. The investigation of Bosma's death would eventually lead to the discovery of two other murders: the pair would be charged with the murder of Laura Babcock, Millard's former girlfriend, who disappeared in 2012, and Millard alone would be charged with the murder of his own father, Wayne Millard. 2016.
