Hamilton police confirmed Tuesday morning that they had found the body of Tim Bosma, a young father who disappeared under mysterious circumstances just over a week ago.
Bosma disappeared last Monday night after accompanying two men who took his 2007 Dodge Ram pickup truck on a test drive. Bosma had posted the truck for sale on Kijiji and AutoTrader.
Just last week a father of two in Connecticut was killed after setting off to sell a Samsung tablet he had advertised on Craigslist.
And last month, Richard James Beasley was convicted of murdering three men who answered a Craigslist ad to work on an Ohio cattle farm.

Will what happened to Tim Bosma change how you use online classifieds?
