NORTH DUMFRIES, Ont. – Police and other officials are wrapping up their week-long search of the North Dumfries farm, Friday, belonging to Dellen Millard.
Millard, 28, is one of two men charged in the abduction and murder of 32-year-old Ancaster man Tim Bosma.
Although there is no official word on what brought officers back to the farm on Monday, the barn was the main focus of the investigation, with Toronto Police saying new information into the disappearance of Laura Babcock – linked to Millard – is what led them back.
Officials at the scene included Toronto Police Forensic Identification Services, OPP officers, while North Dumfries fire crews and regional EMS were also in attendance, believed to be there for the safety and protection of the investigators.
Earlier in the week, officials removed hay bales, while on Friday, officers wearing full protective hazardous material gear, including oxygen masks, removed 54 barrels from the barn. However, it’s not clear what was found inside the containers, or what investigators are searching for.
Meantime, the OPP has tweeted that chemical drums were removed from the barn for safety assessment reasons only, acting on the direction of Toronto Police.
It’s the second time this year out-of-town officials have searched Millard’s rural property south of Kitchener.
