Clairmont: Sharlene Bosma brings loving laughter to court
by Susan Clairmont, Monday, 1 February 2016
Sharlene Bosma takes the stand at her husband's murder trial and she makes me laugh.
It is one of those beautiful, tragic, strange things that jars one into sudden clarity. That makes it all so very real. This, I think, is the woman Tim loved. Warm. Smart. Pretty. Tough as hell. And funny.
Tim would be so proud
Smich, 28 and Millard, 30, watch Sharlene make her way through the packed courtroom (150 people there and another 90 watching a video feed in another room), but the young widow does not look at them once.
Instead, she focuses on Tim.
They met on E-Harmony in November 2008, she tells the court after assistant Crown Tony Leitch asks about the beginning of the Bosma love affair.
"After a week or two of chatting, we eventually met and had a very disastrous first date," she says, laughing. By the third date they were hooked.

Bosma trial hears one “friendly” man, one “reclusive” showed up for test drive
By Susan Clairmont
There was a tall friendly guy with good hair and a cellphone.
Also a shorter sketchy guy with a red hoodie who never spoke.
Then there is a print from a right thumb with a double loop whorl.
Together, these bits of evidence begin to answer the question of who test drove Tim Bosma's truck.
Jurors at the first-degree murder trial of accused killers Dellen Millard, 30, and Mark Smich, 28, were presented with very different kinds of evidence Tuesday by the Crown team around the issue of that fatal test drive. There was the testimony of an eye witness describing the two men who walked up the Bosmas' long country lane just after 9 p.m. on May 6, 2013. And the expert testimony of a veteran forensics officer who specializes in fingerprints.

Det. Sgt. Greg Jackson is seen here entering the John Sopinka Courthouse in Hamilton on Wednesday. (CBC)
The intricacies of using cellphone records in a criminal investigation were on display in Superior Court in Hamilton Wednesday, at the trial of two men charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death Tim Bosma, of Ancaster, Ont.
Officers obtained Bosma's phone records, and found that one of the last numbers that called his phone was registered to a "Lucas Bate."

At 5:13 p.m. on May 6, Bosma's phone called the Bate phone.
At 7:22 p.m., the Bate phone contacted Bosma's phone.
At 9:04 p.m., the Bate phone called Bosma's phone.

Bosma murder trial hears tip about accused killer’s tattoo gave police big break
By: Liam Casey The Canadian Press, Published on Wed Feb 03 2016
Tim Bosma's widow, Sharlene (right), arrives for Day 3 of the trial of Dellen Millard and Mark Smich,who are charged with first-degree murder in Bosma's death.
HAMILTON—One of the lead investigators into the death of a man slain after going on a test drive with two strangers told jurors on Wednesday that it was a tip about one of the accused killer’s tattoos that gave police a major breakthrough in the case.
Det. Greg Jackson said a Toronto man, Igor Tumemenko, scheduled to testify later in the trial, told police about a test drive linked to the same phone number involved in Tim Bosma’s disappearance. Bosma’s body was found a week later burned beyond recognition.
After hearing from Tumemenko, police focused their investigation on the tattoo and the cell phone, Jackson said.
“In the course of the investigation, you received information from two reliable police sources in Peel and Toronto about Mr. Millard having an ambition tattoo, correct?” asked Crown attorney Anthony Leitch.
“That’s correct,” Jackson said.
Jackson said they tried but were unable to get finger and footprints from Tumemenko’s truck.
