The dog ate this week’s agenda and last. But it wasn’t very tasty. I’ve been busy with some pretty routine contract work.
There are a few updates on the linked Dellen Millard investigations, however. An alert reader kindly pointed out to me that the Toronto Star recently reported on how “a ‘208’ contact card during a traffic stop led police to accused murderer Dellen Millard.” This jibes with information I received that MIllard had been stopped on a traffic violation before Tim Bosma’s disappearance and murder. The cop made a note of his tattoo and this was then used to identify him after the test drive witness described the tattoo. It’s not clear whether the tattoo information was in a database or the cop’s memory.
I also found out through a Freedom of Information request that Dellen Millard was present at a fatal accident at the Brantford airport in 2005. The accident investigation report was supposed to have the names of all three workers present — MIllard, the deceased and another man — redacted, but whoever did the redacting was sloppy and left both Millard’s name and his mother’s visible.
I’m still waiting for the OPP’s report on the accident, which I hope will provide the name of the worker who died and, possibly, the third man. If you know anything about this accident please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
