It looks like Miiard has a prior history with murder. I wonder how long it will be before his father's death is re-opened for investigation.

This thread is for Laura Babcock. Post any connections to Dellen Millard here. Discussion of other DM related matters should stay in Tim Bosma's thread for now.

CTV News report how Laura's ex-bf reported her missing with no action apparently taken until now that DM has been arrested.

Laura Babcock's ex-boyfriend, Shawn Lerner, provides more information in this article:

"Lerner said police were at first reluctant to take the missing persons report. Police from Toronto’s homicide squad confirmed to CTV News that as far as they were concerned, nothing seemed suspicious about Babcock’s case until Millard was arrested in connection with Bosma’s death."

I just watched this video and I am seething in anger at the Toronto Police Force . They took absolutely NO ACTION to investigate the disappearance of this young lady despite the valuable information provided by her boyfriend.

It was absolutely disgusting for the Toronto Police investigator to say the boyfriend had no right to know her whereabouts.

I hope that the public will DEMAND that the Toronto Police investigators responsible for this inexcusable lack of are FIRED!

Tim Bosna is dead thanks to inaction by Toronto Police!

Very likely Wayne Millard is also dead as well thanks to TPS!

A bit of conflicting info with this link:

He met Millard face to face to talk about Laura’s disappearence and initially, Millard denied receiving her calls.

“He finally relented and admitted that okay, it was eight calls,” Lerner said. “Then he said that Laura contacted him asking for a place to stay and asked him about drugs and he denied both of those requests.”

http://www.680news.com/2013/05/17/up...im-bosma-case/

I thought he said he gave her coke and it had been doing it for months.

Lerner said Babcock was struggling with depression and looking for a place to live after moving out of her parents’ home.
He said he confronted Millard on July 27, 2012, with Babcock’s phone records. Millard eventually admitted he had been talking to Babcock, the ex-boyfriend said.
Lerner said mutual friends told him Millard and Babcock were in a relationship.
No mention of cocaine in this article.

CN (DM's presumed girlfriend) and SL are fb friends...

Did DM meet CN through LB, or vice versa?

Yes, it looks callous in hindsight. But then, the police really shouldn't be investigating every errant girlfriend that tries to give a guy the slip. I'm sure that's how they were treating it.

Yeah, I am saddened no one seemingly cared enough about her to press the issue. I pointed out on the Bosma thread that she didn't have a WS Missing thread till tonight (which tells me she got no media coverage and no desperate loved ones found the site), and even google doesn't have much info on her disappearance. But not sure the police can be blamed--the guy probably did look like a jealous ex.

But where was her family? Did the police contact them? Was there really no one to care but the ex-bf when she dropped off the face of the planet?

Okay, so for starters I'm thinking this, SL has a girlfriend, LB.
LB has a close friend, CN. LB meets and 'has a relationship' (per friends claims) with DM after break up with SL. LB goes missing, and CN and DM enter relationship.
SL and CN are fb friends because CN was close friends with LB.

I'm just trying to get things going here, all MOO.

Thoughts?

That's my issue too -- why didn't her family (sister, aunty grandmother anyone) press this matter to LE....ex beau has no legal clout....

Dunno if this was posted yet... twitter (which I am not a part of) has some interesting feed and theories of who is behind the tweets, they seem to know a lot about DM, and its about LB.
