Accused killer Mark Smich gave off a bad vibe while selling cigarettes to underage students at Oakville high schools, according to one of his former customers.
“There was something off, something strange about him,” said the young man, whose name cannot be printed due to a publication ban covering all evidence relating to the trial of Mark Smich and his co-accused, Dellen Millard, for the first degree murder of Laura Babcock.
Smich’s former customer told police, who questioned him on a number of occasions, that he didn’t know his former cigarette supplier well. “I was not afraid, but not 100 percent comfortable” around him, he said.
Both Smich and Millard are pleading not guilty to all murder charges against them.
