Laura Babcock

The murder case of a young woman whose body has not been found hinges upon a “large and complex” body of circumstantial evidence.  Laura Babcock, a troubled 23-year-old Toronto woman, vanished five years ago.

Two men — Dellen Millard and Mark Smich — are accused of killing Babcock in July 2012 and burning her body in an animal incinerator.
