Here are four articles that provide insights into the character and motivations of Dellen Millard, the 27-year-old man accused of murdering Tim Bosma.
Suspect in Tim Bosma’s death was always ‘a little different’ and did ‘odd stuff’ at private school, classmate says
And one of the odd things he did was to seek attention by eating dog biscuits straight out of the box. This is a great Dellen MIllard profile from the National Post. Read all
James Van Allen, former head of the OPP’s criminal profiling unit, tells the Spectator:
(Tim Bosma’s) killer is someone who is exploitive, abusive, lacks any empathy and is a risk-taker.
The murder deviates from what is typically seen in the car theft racket, he said, where excessive violence is not the norm.
“This is too elaborate to steal one truck; to have these allegations of multiple people involved, multiple attempts to access a truck.”
What doesn’t add up, he said, is why anyone would murder for a truck. And “is the crime incongruent with the person charged?”
The Sun has someone in the police leaking information to them. This article appeared early on in the investigation:
Police are looking into a small, “close-knit group of friends” that hung around together.
Dellen Millard, charged with first-degree murder, was part of that group.
“Social media was a big part of their activities,” the source said…
…On one hand, this murder had the look and feel of something out of the movie Fargo, but a police source said a new TV show , The Following, may be closer to it.
The show depicts a number of people following a leader involved in nefarious activities, including homicide.
Declining Dynasty: More about Dellen Millard and his father Wayne
This is my article from the National Post dealing with, among other things, the mysterious death of Wayne Millard
In his role as a business development consultant to Millardair’s new Waterloo airport venture, Al Sharif was happy to have only limited contact with Dellen Millard, the boss’s son and the guy in charge of hangar construction. As far as Mr. Sharif and other executives at the company were concerned, Dellen and his red mohawk spelled trouble.
“I thought he was just a spoilt little brat who had his way all his life and didn’t appreciate what his father was doing for him,” said Mr. Sharif. “He was an impediment to the hangar operation” who didn’t meet his deadlines, almost never arrived at work before noon, and refused to clear his collection of cars, jeeps, hot rods, jet skis and personal airplanes from the business premises.
