    This is the Bosma murder trial daily discussion thread. The trial daily discussion thread is for discussion of trial evidence/testimony only, not for general discussion, posts about past threads, other members, etc. Off-topic posts will be removed.

    Note: Only testimony that is published through MSM reporting (articles and tweets) is allowed. Keep discussion focused on testimony as it becomes public knowledge and remember to link up to MSM reporting of same.

    Any testimony that might remain under Publication Ban, and any courtroom discussion that takes place when the jury is not present, is strictly off-limits. Posts that violate a Publication Ban, or discussion when the jury is absent, will be removed.


    At all times, keep in mind Websleuths TOS, so affectionately referred to as The Rules.

    There will be ZERO TOLERANCE for snarky or disrespectful posts and/or subtle digs at other members. Mods will not be PMing you with explanations, you will find your post has disappeared, or that you can no longer post.

    There is to be NO name calling or name variations, not even of the accused.

    There is to be no BICKERING between members. A difference of opinion is NOT a TOS violation. Some will think one or both of the accused are guilty, some will think one or both are not guilty, and some will be on the fence. All of that is okay and should NOT BE ATTACKED. If you disagree, that's fine, move past the post. If a post is offensive, alert it and let the Mods review it. If you respond to the post, both the offensive post AND yours will be removed and may result in other consequences.

    Other reminders for reference as we have respectful discussion in each of the daily trial discussion threads:

    Abuse of the WS Alert feature can have consequences including timeout or worse. Such abuse includes, but is not limited to:

    • Overuse of the alert system

    • Repeatedly alerting on the same poster

    • Demanding a specific outcome

    • Alerting on the same post more than once

    Once you have alerted on a post, please move on without discussing it, and don't question the decisions of our Administrators, Moderators or Owners, and don't expect personalized responses with explanations about a particular decision.


    The principle of “innocent until proven guilty” is for the court room … it is not required that Websleuths members adhere to that principle. Members are allowed to discuss, speculate, theorize, and judge according to opinions they develop from following the specifics of the case.

    If you have any questions, PM a Mod and we will be happy to assist you. The main Mods/Admin for this trial will be Bessie, Coldpizza, and sillybilly.

    Goodman says we're starting with points of clarification.
    by Adam Carter 10:04 AM

    Smich's lawyer Thomas Dungey starts by saying Smich admits to an injury to his left shoulder, and to a mischief charge.
    by Adam Carter 10:05 AM

    Tony Leitch says the Crown is closing its case.

    Leitch says Crown's case closed. Pillay says no evidence will be called. That means Millard will not testify. #Bosma Jury sent out.

    Court is now in recess for 15 minutes. Afterwards, we expect Smich will be put to his election, and say whether or not he will testify.

    DM not testifying and calling no evidence? So they are just letting the crown's case speak for itself. Funny how chirpy DM was in letters but won't speak for himself. Says a lot

    All comments are JMO unless stated otherwise

    I didn't think his lawyer would let him. He's done enough damage to himself. Moo

    Suddenly it feels as though the end is in sight for this very long trial. #Bosma

    molly hayes ‏@mollyhayes 2m2 minutes ago
    Also the 2nd clarification Dungey made (jumping back) is that no-contact order Smich breached w friend Arthur related to a mischief charge.


    Susan Clairmont ‏@susanclairmont 2m2 minutes ago
    We're waiting to learn what Mark Smich's intentions are in terms of calling evidence. #Bosma


    Susan Clairmont ‏@susanclairmont 2m2 minutes ago
    Seems anti-climatic after all this, but to be clear: Dellen Millard will not testify and his defence team is calling no evidence. #Bosma
