Episode #62: Barbara E. Miller - Murdered (1989)

Updated: May 5, 2022

Barbara E Miller was attending a wedding on July 1, 1989. She never made it to the bar in Mifflinburg where she was to meet friends later that night. Five days later her boyfriend reported her missing. Barbara had been getting death threats through the mail because she could potentially clear a murder suspect in a case from 1986. But there is also a lot of suspicion around her boyfriend at the time. So much evidence has been found and the case handed over to the attorney general’s office in 2018. They have not released any information since and won’t even comment.
