Toronto police searching Millard farm property

Toronto police are again searching the Ayr, Ont., farm owned by Dellen Millard, who is accused of first-degree murder in the death of Hamilton man Tim Bosma.

What looked like a backhoe was brought to the farm early Tuesday morning but police would only say that the force was executing a search warrant.

Const. Wendy Drummond says police were executing a search warrant at the farm on Tuesday and that it was in relation to the Toronto police involvement in the Bosma case.

She had no other details and said there were no immediate plans to release any further information.

Police are investigating the disappearance of missing Toronto woman, Laura Babcock, and have reopened the suicide case of Millard’s father Wayne who died late last year and left his son the family business, Millardair.

Babcock, 23, went missing last June. Her ex-boyfriend has told CityNews that she was dating Millard and that her cellphone records showed eight calls, including the last one she made before disappearing, were to Millard.

Millard, 27, of Etobicoke, was charged on May 15 with first-degree murder as well as other offences in Bosma’s death. The charred remains of Bosma, 32, were located in Waterloo Region a week after he took two men on a test drive of his black Dodge pickup truck that he was trying to sell.

Mark Smich, 25, of Oakville, was also charged with first-degree murder in Bosma’s death last Wednesday, the same day a public memorial service was held for the married father of a two-year-old daughter.

Police are still looking for at least one more suspect who was driving another vehicle that trailed behind the pickup on May 6.
