    When did the uncle hear this story about DMs pet cremation business plan? Was it before or after the arrest? Is it possible that the story was concocted after as an alibi for owning the Eliminator? Especially since CDs wife still seemed loyal and CN was still being loyal

    MOO, I was very aware that TB was missing due to connections, however as Hussey texted DM on May 11th, it is apparent he hadn't heard of his future business partner's arrest. So he may not listen to MSM.

    I remember discussing this back then. Didn't we come to the conclusion that the paper work and finalization went through on the day after Bosma disappeared. Not that DM went out searching and decided to buy it that day.

    I wonder how close RB is with his sister? I know there was another sibling that passed away in her 50's, so DM does have other cousin's (other than RB's children) Could the cousin he refers to in his Jailhouse letter be from RB's other sister? I am also surprised that if MB is to testify, why she did not testify early on in the trial? SB got her testimony out of the way first and then could be there for the trial..you would think if she believes her son is innocent, she would want to be in court to support him? Does she have a choice? could she ask to testify earlier so she can be in court?

    Yep, same here. I think a lot of it depends on if you are in any Bosma circles (family, church, if you are dutch :)) and how many degrees of separation you would be from that. Also, your level of involvement in social media would affect the timing. I picture a circle around the Bosma home and the Ancaster CRC and rings cascading out from there as a representation of how the news travelled for the first day or two. Then the news would have picked up on it.

    Re: the 39 more witnesses to come...

    So far, we've seen all kinds of witnesses on the stand that we never expected. Just yesterday is a really good example when semi-retired guy testified to seeing the orange tarp. Then DM's uncle. I don't think any of us knew he was going to testify, did we? We didn't even know about the man who saw the orange tarp. I think we'll be surprised to learn there were many many people interviewed by LE during their investigation that will be called to testify to what they saw, heard, or knew about.

    Correct Arnie- he would have given his lawyer the funds and signed all the papers for the transfer of the deed at least a few days prior to closing. Very seldom is it done on the day of closing. MOO

    The witness described his task as unloading the barrels at the farm. Another wonderful quality about DM....environmentalist. I am going to assume all the barrels full of oil were from all the oil changes that they were doing at the hangar. Instead of disposing them properly as required by law, let's just stuff them in an old barn at my farm! MOO

    I'm not sure about anyone else but I was sure glad to read the full articles from MSM last night. Yesterday was the first day that I found it extremely difficult to follow. I found the Tweets coming from the courtroom to be very difficult to follow. Not related to the fine work the people at WS are doing copying the tweets, the actual tweets themselves. Especially the testimony from the Uncle.

    Now, just a thought about the Uncle's testimony. Yesterday I commented that it really helped by removing the Defense's chance of using the incinerator as a true business endeavor. But there is another part to this. From reading the MSM articles about the witness, which added a significant amount of detail that we didn't get in the tweets, his uncle was pretty much spewing venom towards his "nephew." This was the first witness that truly was able to provide any indication of the character of DM. Too bad they didn't delve deeper into that. MOO

    When were the barrels of oil unloaded in the barn. I see 2012. Anything more specific than that in terms of month or date?

    Does DM lawyers purposely try make him sound rather dumb. I mean if I knew someone who spent 15k on an excavator then quickly blew out the motor I'd laugh at them due to their stupidity. I wouldn't be thinking whoa money bags.

    DM was no stranger to the heat. In DP's first interview, right after DM was arrested, he eluded to the fact that he knew DM from a previous matter. I can only assume someone DM knew, needed DP's services (perhaps MWJ) and somehow DM avoided the need for a criminal lawyer. IMO, DM had become accustomed to using his perceived wealth and success as a trusty alibi. IMO, DM knew that it was in his best interest to get CN lawyered up asap if in fact he did get arrested and he knew that CN didn't have the resources to retain a lawyer. Since she lived at home, Legal Aid may not even be an option. I speculate that even though DM didn't get the cash to her that day, he was still able to get her a lawyer via DP or MB. MOO

    It looks more like a backpack to me, instead of the gym bag style that was found in the Yukon.

    Maybe the invoice was at DM house and MS and DM had her retrieve it for them.


    I also wonder if things were left out in the open on purpose to try eliminate it as suspicious. Myself if something is right there in plain view it doesn't click in it maybe something criminal. If someone attempts to hide something my brain says this must be something bad otherwise why hide it?

    I wonder if some of this was done on purpose and not sloppiness. People would think he has money so the truck being purchased in Kitchener seems legit. The truck would be moved quickly and forgotten about.
