Wife of Tim Bosma speaks of loss


HAMILTON – The wife of a man who was killed after posting his truck for sale online and taking a test drive with two men says she is trying not to fall apart, for the sake of their two-year-old daughter.

Hamilton police believe 32-year-old Tim Bosma was killed May 6, some time after leaving his house on the test drive, and his body was found this week, burned beyond recognition.

His wife, Sharlene Bosma, made a tearful public statement today, saying that when police told her about her husband’s fate it was the “most horrifying day” of her life.

Sharlene Bosma says their daughter will grow up knowing how much her father loved her.

She nearly lost her composure as she recalled how Tim would watch their daughter sleep.

A Toronto man, 27-year-old Dellen Millard, was charged today with first-degree murder and will appear next in court via video on June 13.

Police are still looking for a second man they say went along for the test drive of Bosma’s 2007 Dodge Ram pickup, and at least one more suspect who they say followed behind the truck.

The family has set up a trust account where donations can be made for Sharlene Bosma and her daughter at TD Canada Trust.
