"When it was reported that he owned an incinerator (??) OMG! Wonder if he fits into the category of "thrill-killer".. " End Quote.
Meg isn't the only person questioning a thrill kill motive, and the possibility that there are more victims. Take note in the following article that the suspect's father died of a gunshot wound, thought to be a suicide, which is now being questioned.http://www.am980.ca/news/local/story.aspx?ID=1962575
eport: Police Consider 'Thrill Kill' as Possible Motive in Tim Bosma Murder
A disturbing possible motive for the murder of Tim Bosma has surfaced - Hamilton Police are reportedly considering the possibility the 32-year-old's murder was a "thrill kill."
A report in the Toronto Sun on Thursday quotes police sources suggesting investigators are seriously considering the possibility, and are looking into a small group of friends that spent time together and used social media as part of their activities.
27-year-old Dellen Millard, charged with first-degree murder, was part of that group. They do not believe Bosma was involved with this group in any way before his disappearance and death.
The paper reports one clue uncovered by investigators where the 32-year-old Bosma's remains were found was a portable farm incinerator, used to cremate dead farm animals.
Police are also taking another look into previous deaths. For example, Dellan Millard's father died last December from a gunshot wound to the eye.
Police originally believed it was a suicide, but the coroner may be asked to take another look into his death.
In other developments, Kijiji has made its first statement on the story.
Officials with the popular classifieds website are downplaying any potential role the site may have had in Bosma's disapperance. In a statement, Kijiji argues that the murder suspects would not have been able to contact Tim Bosma through its site, because he did not reveal any personal information on the site.
Kijiji says as part of the information that's been handed over to Hamilton Police, the website claims Bosma's ad did not receive any replies.
According to the public statement, "the incident did not occur as a result of his ad posting on Kijiji."
A user can choose after posting an ad on Kijiji whether or not they would like to display personal information. People interested in your ad can contact you by replying through Kijiji itself, but the website says nobody responded to Bosma's ad in that way.
Some reports have suggested that two suspects who showed up at Bosma's house on May 6 were directly responding to the ad. Bosma took two men for a test drive in the truck he had for sale and never came back.
The ad was also posted in AutoTrader. End
