    Once again:

    DO NOT:

    • sleuth people who have not been named by LE as suspects or POI's.
    • link to social networking pages of people who have not been named by LE as suspects. The few exceptions are victims' pages, and LE or MSM pages. Any exceptions must be mod-approved.
    • link to a social networking page unless you are 100% certain it belongs to the suspect/victim.
    • COPY & PASTE posts and comments from other websites, including FB, twitter, etc.
    • POST photos from other websites, including FB, twitter, instagram, etc.
    • post the name of a private individual, minor or adult, who has not been named in the media. Even then, unless s/he's a major player, initials should be used in place of full names.

    Questions about the rules or mod decisions should be addressed to a mod in a pm.

    If you see a post that violates TOS, alert the post ASAP so a mod can handle the problem.


    If you quote a post that has to be removed, your post will be removed, as well.

    My feeling is that DM left Etobicoke and drove to Oakville to pick up MS and another/others on the way to Ancaster.

    There are a few Oakville friends of MS, namely CD and JR, who claim to know something about MS's involvement in the crime. CD fingered "Arthur" who could be MS's partner in crime, AS. CD's behavior has been so odd, if she does truly know what's going on, it may be first hand, IMO.

    DM's lawyer says he is "100% not guilty" and JR wrote MS was "an innocent bystander". So does that mean that suspect #3 is the killer?

    DM's biggest problem is going to be explaining the existence of the incinerator. It may have been the key ingredient in a planned "perfect crime". I feel that TB's death was premeditated, not a result of a carjacking gone to far, just because the incinerator was there to cover their tracks (and really, TB could have been left on a country road with no cell phone and that would have tied him up for as long as it took SB to start looking for him anyway.)

    I think DM moved the trailer to MB's because the heat was already on by Wednesday night, May 8. LE had gotten the call list of the burner phone and was calling around to everyone it had called (including seller #1). DM's friends no doubt reported that they had been called by LE about the burner phone to him. Fearing that he would be connected to the crime, he moved the truck/trailer to MB's.

    The motive was both the truck, and I think DM was hoping to build some street cred with the Oakville ****s, which is why he went along with the plan and offered up so much of his resources.

    No doubt. But depending on whether human remains were found in the thing. Do we have the answer to that?

    Not at all, LE never confirmed that the incinerator was used. A reporter's tweets tied the incinerator to some scorch marks, see:

    Holy mackerel. Trial by media. It's really scary isn't it? Hopefully, by the time this case finally plods along all the way to the courtroom, enough people will be available to form a viable jury who haven't already made up their minds about this case.

    Apparently is was not LE that found the incinerator: the day that DM was arrested (Friday) two men that worked on a neighboring farm took a photo of it and went to LE and the media. LE then confiscated their phone with the pic on it...but not before the pic was plastered all over the internet

    I simply meant in the general discussion of motive in this case, not just here on this forum. Honestly, I can't wrap my head around ANY motive that would justify what was done to Tim Bosma, but sooner or later we'll find out what it was.

    If someone wants to steal a vehicle, they do it when the occupants are away from the vehicle. Carjacking might happen when someone is fleeing a situation and they want a car right away, but this situation was completely different. This was a random (given that another vehicle owner also met with the murderers) kidnapping/murder using the ruse of taking a vehicle for a test drive.

    I personally believe that it was the release of the information on the tattoo on the morning of May 10th that led to someone calling in the tip very shortly after that information was released and the subsequent arrest of DM that same afternoon.

    If not for that tattoo, I firmly believe he may never have been aprehended and we'd still be wondering where TB was and who the two suspects were that came to his home that evening.

    MOO

    what if DM was in the yukon? perhaps he let the other 2 go up the driveway..maybe they wanted the truck..although LE must have forensic evidence placing DM in TB's truck..but if LE collected DNA would they have gotten from DM already? prints I guess?

    Both SB and Seller #1 saw DM and MS and gave matching descriptions/id'ed them as the men who came to test drive the trucks...seller #1 was able to add the "Ambition" tattoo detail...so DM was not in the Yukon after the drive down to Ancaster. He was in TB's truck.

    I don't think the Yukon will offer up much info because DM was driving it for 4 days after and any prints from the driver on May 6 would have been obliterated

    Yukons after 2008 come standard with OnStar (GPS)...however LE has not given the year of the Yukon, only its colour

    This article says DM was the driver of TB's truck in the test drive:

    " At the conference, police had a better description of one man they were looking for — the driver who climbed in beside Bosma.

    Police hoped the small word "Ambition" inked on one suspect's wrist would be a beacon to finding him. "

    An interesting Huffington Post article ponders Kijiji's legal liability in the TB case.
