    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.

    The lawyer for the Crown will make his closing argument this morning in the Hamilton courtroom where two men charged with first-degree murder have been at the focus of a four-month trial into the death of Tim Bosma.

    The last time assistant Crown attorney Craig Fraser was before the Ontario Superior Court jury in Hamilton, he was cross-examining co-accused Mark Smich.

    I thought I read Susan Clairmont say she would get a copy. That RP said he might give her one of his as well. Nothing from TD since he never writes his out. Or maybe I'm just crazy? Did anyone else read that? lol

    "The mission went well. Mark Smich and Dellen Millard were really happy," Leitch says, saying they were celebrating a "planned and deliberate murder."
    by Adam Carter 9:42 AM

    "They murdered him together, and they tried to destroy all of the evidence of their crime together."
    by Adam Carter 9:43 AM

    Leitch says that if something had actually gone wrong, Millard and Smich wouldn't have been celebrating mere hours after Bosma's death.

    Leitch now playing the security camera video of the Yukon showing up the morning after to pick up Smich's girlfriend.
    by Adam Carter 9:44 AM

    In the video, you can see Smich get out of the Yukon and hug Marlena Meneses.
    by Adam Carter 9:46 AM

    Leitch now playing Meneses' testimony where she describes the mood in the truck. "Very happy ... saying they wanted to celebrate," she said.
    by Adam Carter 9:47 AM

    "They just said the mission went well," she said.

    Leitch says Meneses told police in her original statement that Millard was happy when she got in the Yukon. "Compare her with Christina Noudga, who still doesn't understand what she did wrong."
    by Adam Carter 9:48 AM

    "She has no guile, or cunning, like her counterpart, Christina Noudga."
    by Adam Carter 9:48 AM

    "Two stranger arrived, and took him from all of us ... he did nothing to deserve the ending of his life. He just wanted to sell his truck."

    Leitch says Smich told a lie as to what happened, and Millard's theory through counsel was also "unsupported."
    by Adam Carter 9:51 AM

    "Tim Bosma was targeted by them for his truck," Leitch says.
    by Adam Carter 9:52 AM

    "Fortunately for justice in our community, they made some mistakes," Leitch says.

    I'd sure like to know why MM changed her statement. Originally she told the police that it was DM who was happy when she got in the Yukon that morning. On the stand, she added that they were both in a celebratory mood and bopping up and down in their seats. Which one is the truth?

    Leitch says the defence has tried to make this a "choice between shooters."
    by Adam Carter 9:52 AM

    Helpers or those who encourage a murder may be as guilty as someone who causes a murder, Letich says. "If there was one shooter, does that mean the other non-shooter is not guilty? Not at all."
    by Adam Carter 9:53 AM

    "To knowingly help a murderer do it, or encouraging a murder ... is enough."
