Good old Susan Clairmont covered the case, but she seemed to ever be the only reporter present during the trial. She may not have reported on every single detail, but I have to admit that even though I believed the accused to be guilty all of the years between the murder and the trial, I was shocked that the jury actually came back with a guilty verdict, based on what little was actually reported on as evidence....

    I was following that case along too, deugirtni.

    I've followed a number of cases over the years - being interested in true crime like many others here. I don't think I've ever followed a case with as much overwhelming evidence as what I have seen already in the first three weeks of this trial. And it sounds like there is still a great deal of solid evidence to come - ie, video.

    I don't think there's any way these guys are not going to be found guilty of 1st degree murder.

    hearing how Tracy Rogers broke down a bit after stating she wanted to give the family peace of mind to get back all the remains made me cry..so heartbreaking.

    pretty unbelievable his Lawyer did not try and convince him to just plead guilty..don't know how after seeing the disclosure he ever thought he would be able to raise any reasonable doubt..but I do have a question..lets just say the gun was hidden by Smich and let's just hypothetically say there was a struggle and Tim had grabbed the gun and it went off...could the defence retrieve the gun? If Smich believed there would be prints from Tim on the gun..could defence use the gun as evidence and have it tested or would it have to be given to crown first? I am pretty sure this didn't happen but was just curious of the way crown/defence operate..I am sure defence will have their own evidence is that correct? or are they there just to question and argue existing evidence?

So my mind then goes to wondering about whether sections of the body could have been severed prior to incineration. (Would that speed the process?)

    I hate that a bunch of remains are still missing. I'm assuming they are still missing, or LE would have undoubtedly called Dr Rogers in again to confirm their find. I wonder where they were taken to? Ugh!
    it's possible they are going in order of evidence found...perhaps as the days went on and they dug up areas of the farm, more bones were found..it almost seems to me that all the larger bones may have been cleaned out and disposed of elsewhere..the bones left behind...they either did not see? or could not access? hidden in the corner of the incinerator behind the tubing? Maybe we will here from her again..it just seems very strange that media reported a second set of remains found and then people assumed another person but I think it was a second set of remains and they were Tim's

    When I said "along for the ride" re MS, I just meant that so far, all the evidence/testimony seems to point right at DM, and MS was just stupid enough to be friends with him and willing to go along with whatever wicked/illegal plans DM had.

    Bosma Murder Trial 02.18.16 - Day 11

    That was one of my questions. What years were the other trucks he called about. This could be the reason they targeted Tim. He had an older truck that wouldn't be damaged by Mexican fuel. Where as the others would be.


    Never mind my question were answered

    I know I saw a tweet early in the trial that I am desperately trying to find so I can link..(I think it was first fingerprint testimony---Feske) that said they sent that fingerprint in to compare to unsolved cases on file. But I myself would assume they would do that anyway. Would just make sense...


    Too bad there is not an easy way to search through all these tweets.

If he had all of this wealth that Paradkar purported him to have, what's a few extra (thousand) bucks to have a newer vehicle that will last a few years longer? I wonder what year the other Rams were that DM tried to test drive?
    A lot of times car guys will prefer an older model of a vehicle simply because it had slightly better performance numbers. Sometimes increasing emissions restrictions sap horsepower, so older models are preferred. Not sure if that is the case here though.

    It is very hard to believe that DMs first crime was the murder of LB. Not saying that he killed anyone prior to that but I'll bet the farm that this guy wasn't as clean as his criminal record indicated.

    ETA: Given Millard's record, I'd say the is a pretty good chance that the old guy that fell off the wing of the plane he was servicing, with only DM present, might not have been an accident either.

    so as far as I understand the forensic evidence presented by the crown to date, there has been identification that there was blood in the truck, and male bones in the incinerator... It has not been linked through DNA or dental records to be TB - right?

    I am not on the DM / MS innocent wagon, I am just trying to understand the level of facts presented from the crown to date. I assume it will all be tied together through DNA...

    AFAIK, the crown has identified blood and human bones but has not forensically connected it to TB as of yet, except for Rogers testimony that identified the approx age and gender of the bones. I'm sure the DNA identification isn't far behind. BTW, as stated by a previous poster, I'm amazed at the complexity of the identification process. MOO

    I remember back to one of the early pressers- "the totality of the evidence" is now starting to be clear

    "We are convinced by the totality of the evidence that these are the remains of Tim Bosma," De Caire said. "The evidence indicates that the remains were burned."
