    Agreed. In my opinion, the drug aspect is more of an insight to their lifestyles than the reason for killing anyone. It shows that they were risk-seekers, thrill-seekers, and they were willing to pursue illegal activities to get their fix. From this April 2014 article (BBM):

    A former acquaintance of Millard's, who says she had attended almost two dozen parties at his home in the Toronto suburb of Etobicoke, told CBC News that Millard and Noudga were dating.

    "But [Millard] and Laura [Babcock] were just fooling around," she said. "He kept Laura around and gave her drugs."

    The source asked CBC not to use her name because she said she was "terrified" of Millard. She described many of his parties as fuelled by cocaine and the drug MDMA and recalled several times when large brawls broke out.
    Besides drugs, there appears to be sexual risk-taking as well. Was DM's relationship with Babcock done behind CN's back, or was CN in on it? Who else was DM fooling around with?

    Now, looking specifically at DM, factor in the purchase of a gun, the off-road racing, the skydiving, the stealing of vehicles, the property flipping, etc. All of these things reinforce the view of DM as someone with a high appetite for risk and adventure. It is possible that once he got a taste for violence, or more specifically, murder, nothing else could quite satisfy the hunger anymore. JMO.

    I posted the pic to show that the trailer was dirty and rusted and therefore it may have been stored outside.

    MOO
    The incinerator could have been accommodated in the first and smaller barn nearest the road.....the roof on that barn is certainly high enough.

    Difficult to judge the size of the sliding barn door in that building from the photos on line.....and the area directly in front of that door appears to be littered with all manner of junk and may make it difficult to access with big equipment.

    JMO.
    Sure, you could be right, it could be adrenaline only, we are only speculating after all.

    Though, as an example, R. Ramirez used coke in tandem with the high he got from his crimes.

    That's my opinion too. Looking at their lifestyles-- who they associated with and their activities-- it involves drugs, car theft, weapons, sex,..... now murder...

    All becomes a mosaic of who and what they are.

    The only "evidence" we have of any addictions are a few reports of MS smoking weed on the porch, a pack of rolling papers and a suspected (cheap, plastic, non-durable) weed grinder (that suggests he wasn't hard-core because then he'd have a metal one that would last).

    Weed is cheap to smoke - the cheapest "addiction" you can have, and if you run out, the drug does not compel you to go out and perform B&E's to get more...to the contrary, the solution might just be to go to bed. It is not a gripping "addiction".

    Perhaps MS is "addicted" to weed. How much weed is that? It would make MS lazy, demotivated and a follower that doesn't think clearly about what he's about to get into.

    Perhaps DM used MS's weed "addiction" against him...told him he wanted to steal a truck and the stoner MS said duh, okay...totally unsuspecting that someone would end up being killed.

    http://<b>https://docs.google.com/pr...ide=id.p53</b> In the last column (this is a picture folder) he had a file with the name of the woman who accused him of theft. I'd sure love to know what the images were in that folder.

    EDIT: (forgot to add) the whole idea of backing up your phone on someone else's computer still boggles my mind.
    At 6:46 here

    Attachment 90140

    Backing up your phone is done for 1 reason only: to have access to those files in case you need them. You back it up on a pc you have full, unrestricted access to, in case you need it. You don't back it up on someone else's computer (unless you don't have one of your own, I guess?) and it doesn't automatically back up if you just plug it in to charge - you have to run the back up. I suppose it's possible the owner of this phone either didn't have a pc himself & used DM's to back up his phone, or DM backed it up without the owner's knowledge? The latter certainly wouldn't surprise me in the least.
    bbm
    You brought up an interesting point about the one folder. Looking at the list of storage folders on page 36, there are some strange folders even there. A "wayne" folder, "rubixAndPikapoo", "wookieAndBella", "PedoAndCats" and "drunkUncle". I wonder what some of these contain as well. I am still in such disbelief that as young as these two were, they had no inclination as to how they were leaving a technological footprint with phones, iPads, computers........ Just seems out of this world. I know people in nursing homes that know more about technology than these two!
    RIP Timothy Bosma
    Your story will unfold and justice will prevail.

    For all you people that feel these guys were running on Coke, is there one piece of evidence to suggest this? From someone who knows a little bit about that particular drug, I can guarantee that police would have found something to indicate they were regular users, whether it be an unfolded bindle or the telltale rolled up bill. There has been no evidence that anything was found on either of the accused when they were arrested, or in either of their homes. I'm not saying these guys never did coke, but I will say that they didn't do it constantly.

Nonetheless, it was delivered to the hanger and from various photos taken at the hanger, it seems like it was kept there for a period of time. Sometime, presumably after WM's death, the charade was dropped and the Eliminator was moved to the farm where Dellen had always wanted it.

    I think our legal system sucks in that DM doesn't have to take the stand. Wouldn't it be helpful to find out exactly what he was thinking when he purchased that thing and what was his reasoning for moving it to his non-working farm? I believe you should be obligated to take the stand in your own defence, and if you choose not to, you have to live with the consequences.

    All due respect, but anything short of a James Bond-type psychotropic truth serum or Wonder Woman's magic lasso, will only yield the accused's own version of the truth. IMO forcing an accused person to the stand would not elicit the answers you seek. It could potentially yield incriminating testimony, which is why I assume it's not recommended by many defence lawyers, but incriminating doesn't necessarily equal truth. Again, MOO

    ETA - btw, I would love to see him take the stand too, in case you're wondering

    I get that, people are going to lie. But lies are for the most part easy to see through. Isn't the purpose here to find the truth? But we all know innocent people would to a man be eager to get up and tell their side of the story, but I'm pretty sure that the number of truly innocent people that end up in court these days is verging on zero, thus there are no innocent people wanting to testify.

    ...exactly, not murdered because of drugs, as the evidence suggests there was a pre-metated plan to scoop a truck. Back in the late 80's and early 90's when cocaine made its grandioso enterence into SW Ontario (bamm...it was all of a sudden everywhere in the nightlife bar-hopping world) I witnessed some crazy prolonged binges from casual acquaintances and good friends. They call it white-lightning for a reason. All MOO

    One, both or neither being addicts is a matter of pure speculation. What can be presumed with more certainty is that by the time he was arrested Smich would have have been under significant stress for a couple of weeks. That alone could explain a drawn appearance and stepped up drug use.
