TORONTO -- The day started for Clayton Babcock with an early phone call that police would "pop by" to see he and his wife Linda.

The couple, who's daughter Laura Babcock has been missing since June 2012, braced themselves for the worst.

"I knew they wouldn't go to that trouble without having some news," the father said Thursday.

They did.

By 9 a.m., pretty close to the worst news was personally delivered.

"We were told they were going to charge Dellen Millard with her murder," Clayton said.

But the family had some questions: Where is Laura? Did they find Laura?

Clayton said the polite police did not indicate either way.

"It was still unknown if there was the location of her body," said her dad. "They obviously have found enough evidence to feel they could lay a charge."

It's an eerie thought.

There are so many strange twists and turns to this bizarre case that it's like something out of a horror film.

You have parties, stolen motorcycles, cars, airplanes, models, alleged drugs and wealth, the alleged eluding of police and eventual capture thanks to an alert citizen who remembered a tattoo on the arm of Millard which read "Ambition."

But mostly you just have too much death.

A joint project of police, which includes the OPP, Toronto and Hamilton Police, now allege that Millard, 28, is in fact a serial killer -- accused of three separate murders over a 10-month period.
