Not really. Serial killers have a motive for killing too, it's just not one that the average person would consider reason to kill.

Millard gave up the family businesses mechanical licenses of fixing planes.. so how did he support his business. I'm guessing drugs.

Also, the police say Tim was targeted.. so someone had it in for him.

Targeted how? As in they wanted something specific from him or they thought he'd make an easy mark? A rapist will target a victim too, doesn't mean it's a personal vendetta.

Maybe it is a drugs thing, who the hell really knows? Personally I just have a really sick feeling that it's a couple of psychopaths looking for a thrill. I can't explain why, I just get that vibe off this story. But it's a hunch, nothing more.

Laura Babcock murder trial pushed to September 2017

The Laura Babcock murder trial has been postponed until September 2017, a judge ruled Friday.
Justice John McMahon said the original trial date of Feb. 13, 2017, for co-accused killers, Dellen Millard and Mark Smich, was abandoned to accommodate Millard's efforts to hire a suitable lawyer.
Smich and Millard both face first-degree murder charges in the death of Babcock, 23, a Toronto woman who went missing in July 2012. Her body was never found.
Millard is also charged wih first degree murder in the death of his father, Wayne Millard, 71, whose demise in November 2012 was initially considered a suicide.
McMahon said that the Wayne Millard murder trial will be scheduled for February 2018, a month after the Babcock trial is scheduled to end.
Millard, 30, and Smich, 28, are now serving life sentences after they were convicted in June of first-degree murder in the brutal killing and incineration of Hamilton man Tim Bosma.
He disappeared on May 6, 2013, after he took Millard and Smich for a test drive in the truck he was trying to sell online.

Aviation heir Dellen Millard to apply for legal aid to help fund 2 murder trials

TORONTO - A convicted killer who is the heir to a multi-million dollar aviation company will apply for legal aid to help fund his defence in two upcoming murder trials.
Dellen Millard, who was convicted of first-degree murder along with Mark Smich in the death of Tim Bosma in June, told court Friday he cannot access his assets in order to hire lawyers.
He and Smich are charged with first-degree murder in the death of Toronto woman Laura Babcock and Millard alone is charged with first-degree murder in the death of his father, Wayne Millard, whose death was initially deemed a suicide.
Both of those trials have been delayed as Millard continues on without a lawyer.
On Friday, Justice John McMahon set the date for the trial in Wayne Millard’s death for March 20, 2018.
Last week, the trial for Babcock was pushed back from February to September 2017.
Court also heard Friday that Millard will file two motions in the spring.
The first, Millard said, is a motion to quash the direct indictment in the Babcock case. Skipping preliminary hearings is rare in Ontario, although the same thing occurred in the Bosma case.
According to a Crown policy manual on the Ministry of the Attorney General’s website, “this power is an extraordinary one and is used infrequently.”
Millard also plans to file a severance motion because he wants to be tried separately from Smich in Babcock’s case.
For those two motions he told court he wants to hire Ravin Pillay, who represented Millard in the Bosma trial.
McMahon has repeatedly tried to get Millard to hire legal representation for both trials, but as of Friday Millard still didn’t have any on record.
“Mr. Millard, you can apply for legal aid Monday morning, but you have to be diligent hiring counsel,” McMahon said.
“Diligence takes time your honour,” Millard said.
He told court he is looking for a lawyer for the Babcock trial and may represent himself for his father’s murder trial.
There are two civil matters that have complicated matters, Millard said. His company, Millardair, which he inherited after his father died in 2012, is in receivership and the Bosma family has filed a $14-million lawsuit.
Millard cannot inherit his father’s estate because he is charged with his murder.
Lawyers for the civil case as well as legal aid lawyers are scheduled to return to court next Friday to help speed up the process.

Dellen Millard 'has no money' to pay for defence at coming murder trials, court told
By Sam Pazzano, Toronto Sun

TORONTO - Dellen Millard, the convicted killer of Tim Bosma and heir to a multimillion-dollar aviation company, “has no money” to pay for his defence in two coming murder trials, court heard Friday.
“There is no money in my client’s hands to fund a defence,” said James Grout, the court-appointed lawyer who represented two of Millard’s companies now in receivership.
“The only assets of those two companies are a (vendor-take-back) mortgage of two — what I would call — shell companies,” Grout told Justice John McMahon.
The judge had ordered Millard’s civil lawyers to appear in court Friday to attempt to clear any hurdles preventing the accused from hiring lawyers for his looming trials.
Millard, who was convicted in June of first-degree murder along with Mark Smich in Bosma’s 2013 death and incineration, told court a week ago he cannot access his assets to retain lawyers.
Both Millard and Smich are now serving life sentences but are appealing their convictions.
The pair are charged with first-degree murder in the death of Toronto woman Laura Babcock and Millard alone is accused of first-degree murder in the death of his father, Wayne Millard, who was initially believed to have committed suicide.
Both trials have been delayed as Millard — who insisted he wanted to represent himself at the Babcock trial — remained without a lawyer.
Two weeks ago, the trial for Babcock was delayed from February 2017 to September 2017. The trial in Wayne Millard’s death is set for March 20, 2018.
The court also heard Millard will file two motions in the spring — the first aims to quash the direct indictment in the Babcock case. He also plans to file a severance motion because he wants to be tried separately from Smich in Babcock’s case.
Lawyer Ravin Pillay, who represented Millard in the Bosma trial, is Millard’s choice to handle those two motions, court heard.
Two civil proceedings have complicated matters, Millard said. His company, Millardair, which he inherited after his father died in 2012, is in receivership and the Bosma family has filed a $14-million lawsuit.
Court heard that the Bosma lawsuit won’t be proceeding until the coming murder trials are completed.
Millard cannot inherit his father’s estate because he is charged with his murder.

Dellen Millard's ex Christina Noudga expected to plead guilty to obstructing justice
By Sam Pazzano, Toronto Sun

It’s anticipated that the former girlfriend of convicted killer Dellen Millard will plead guilty Tuesday to an obstructing justice charge connected to the Tim Bosma murder case, sources say.
Christina Noudga’s judge-alone trial on charges of being an accessory after the fact and obstructing justice was scheduled to begin Tuesday in a Hamilton courthouse, but sources told the Toronto Sun the case is likely to be resolved.
Millard, 30, of Toronto, and Mark Smich, 28, of Oakville, were each convicted by a jury of first-degree murder in the May 6, 2013 killing of Tim Bosma. Both are serving life sentences with no chance of parole until 2038.
Bosma, 32, was shot after taking Millard and Smich out for a test drive of a pickup truck he was trying to sell.
If the plea bargain goes awry, Noudga’s trial is expected to last two or three weeks.
No one from the Crown attorney’s office or defence counsel’s office would comment Monday.
Noudga testified during the murder trial, saying she accompanied Millard on his drive to park a tractor-trailer containing Bosma’s truck in his mom’s Kleinburg driveway three days after the murder victim’s disappearance.
She told the jury she couldn’t ask questions about the mission because she was busy satisfying Bosma during the hour-long drive.
“It was a sexual expedition. He was driving and I was performing sexual favours on him, so there was no room for questions to be asked,” Noudga testified.
She admitted she later wiped fingerprints off the trailer, court heard.
The couple then drove to his property near Waterloo, where she helped Millard move “The Eliminator,” an animal cremation device, from the barn to the middle of the bush on the sprawling property.
Millard and Smich used The Eliminator to torch Bosma’s remains after he was shot inside his truck, his trial heard.
Noudga said she and Millard donned black Latex gloves when they moved the machinery from the barn and concealed it in a wooded area roughly 80 metres away.

I'd have to search out old publications but if memory serves me, they were selling the truck to buy a car as they had a new baby. It might also help if you read about the Bosma couple. From all accounts, they were a very close loving couple, Dan.

lol
you may be right

I work at street level these days, well, as a volunteer...and was a barman/musician for years on the street.
a situation like this:
There wouldn't be such a mystery if appearances were what they appear to be
Pills, crack, meth, gambling, lovers...even being a whistleblower can create these types of scenarios, and the wife might not know a thing...
or
HE might not know about her...

Millard’s ex-girlfriend pleads guilty to obstructing justice in Tim Bosma murder

HAMILTON - The former girlfriend of an aviation heir convicted of killing Hamilton resident Tim Bosma admitted she destroyed evidence linking the killer to the murder scene.
Christina Noudga pleaded guilty Tuesday to obstructing justice and was sentenced to one day in jail on top of a year credit for time served.
The 24-year-old woman acknowledged she wiped away her own fingerprints — and those of her lover, convicted murderer Dellen Millard — on a trailer hitch and door locks to a trailer containing Bosma’s stolen truck on May 10, 2013.
She discreetly wiped away tears before proceedings began and after she was led into custody.
Bosma was fatally shot on May 6, 2013 after taking Millard and Mark Smich for a test drive in the truck he was trying to sell.
Millard, 30, of Toronto, and Smich, 28, of Oakville, were each convicted of first-degree murder. Both are serving life sentences with no chance of parole until 2038.
Noudga, of Oakville, was arrested about a year after Bosma died and charged with accessory after the fact, but she pleaded guilty to the lesser offence on the morning her trial was scheduled to begin.
“There would have been insufficient evidence to find her guilty on the accessory charge,” Justice Toni Skarica said.
Noudga’s lawyer, Brian Greenspan, said his client neither helped Millard fabricate evidence nor build a false defence for him, as he requested.
Greenspan noted she obtained a Bachelor of Science in health sciences last year and works for Amnesty International. She also had no prior convictions. Her parents were doctors in the Ukraine before they emigrated to Canada 21 years ago.
Noudga and Millard’s mom, Madeline Burns, drove back to Burns’s Kleinburg home, where Millard and Noudga had parked the trailer, and together they removed the fingerprints, said Crown attorney Brett Moodie.
“Noudga was concerned about being associated with a crime and deliberately ... she wiped her and Madeline’s prints from the trailer,” Moodie said.
“This would have the effect of removing Millard’s fingerprints from the trailer locks and hitch.”
Bosma’s truck was found inside the trailer.
