Canadian father Tim Bosma's burned body has been found after he went missing a week ago when he took two men for a test drive of a pickup truck he was selling.
"We are convinced by the totality of the evidence that these are the remains of Tim Bosma," Hamilton Police Chief Glenn De Caire said at a news conference. "We were all working towards the same cause: Find Tim Bosma, and find those responsible. This investigation is long from over."
De Caire continued by saying a forensics team is work on the case and that the police will continue to follow every lead available to them.
"We will work to effect the arrest of those responsible for the death of Tim Bosma," he said. "On this, you have our unrelenting commitment."
Bosma's cause of death and the location of his body were not disclosed in the statement made.
He was last seen at his home in the small town of Ancaster, just outside of Hamilton, on the evening of May 6 when he took two men out to test drive his 2007 Dodge Ram pickup truck he had for sale on Kijiji and in AutoTrader.
Police searched the Kitchener-Waterloo region for 32-year-old Bosma and spent Monday combing through an aircraft hanger owned by suspect Dellen Millard, 27, at the Region of Waterloo International Airport. They also searched a large rural property just south of Kitchener that Millard bought two years ago for $835,000.
Millard, heir to his family's aviation dynasty, now faces charges of forcible confinement and theft over $5,000. Police are still searching for a second suspect.
