Tim Bosma: Hamilton Police make second arrest

TORONTO – Hamilton Police have arrested a second person in connection with the murder of Tim Bosma, who disappeared two weeks ago from outside of his rural Ancaster, Ont. home.

Just after 10 a.m. Wednesday, police arrested 25-year-old Mark Smich on Dorval Drive. Smich has been charged with first-degree-murder.

Supt. Dan Kinsella of the Hamilton Police said Smich was known to police prior to the arrest.

Police have already arrested 27-year-old Dellen Millard, who faces first-degree murder and forcible confinement charges, in connection with Bosma’s death.

Police are also looking for another person, who has yet to be named, who was seen in video evidence following Bosma’s truck.

The unnamed suspect was driving a Dark Blue Yukon SUV which was owned by Millard, Kinsella said.

Bosma’s badly burned body was found in the Waterloo, Ont area on May 14.

Police have not confirmed where in Waterloo the remains were found but were investigating two properties in the area owned by Millard: a farm in Ayr and hangars at the Waterloo International Airport.

Police also found an incinerator on the farm land.

Kinsella confirmed Wednesday that no other remains were found on Millard’s property.

Bosma disappeared after taking two men on a test drive of his 2007 Dodge Ram pickup. He had been trying to sell the truck through online classified ads and police said the suspects may have pretended to be interested in the truck.

The truck was later found outside of Millard’s mother’s home.

Hundreds of people gathered at a Hamilton church Wednesday morning to remember Bosma.
