Authorities have requested 12 more U.S. Marshals to aid in the search for Shane Miller, the man suspected in shooting his wife and two daughters to death in Shingletown a week ago today. The arrival of the Marshals today, who are specialized in hunting fugitives, brings the total of US Marshals to 24.
Yesterday, K-9 units were brought in to search for cadavers.A Humboldt County sheriff's lieutenant says that while investigators have no indication that Miller may have taken his own life, the canines are part of a larger search through California's rugged and remote North Coast terrain. More than 70 law enforcement officers are scouring the area for the 45-year-old suspected of killing his family last Tuesday in the rural community of Shingletown.
The Shasta County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Division continues to investigate all tips and leads that come in from the public. Many pieces of evidence have been collected and processed, which includes DNA evidence.
At this time, evidence points to Shane Miller as the primary suspect who is responsible for the murder of his wife and two children, which occurred on the evening of May 7, 2013 in Shingletown. A Shasta County warrant of arrest, for three counts of murder, has been obtained for Miller.
