As the search for Shane Miller reaches its 28th day, The Shasta County Sheriff’s Department continues to follow any and all leads sent in to them.
Detective Logan Stonehouse with the Major Crimes Unit told Action news this morning the department has continued to receive tips from “all over the place”, mostly within the Northern California Region with a few outside. Stonehouse indicated some of the tips have been helpful, but nothing has proven fruitful so far.
Shane Miller is wanted for the murders of his wife, 34-year-old Sandy Miller, as well as the murders of his daughters (Shelby, 8 and Shasta, 5) which authorities responded to at the Miller residence in Shingletown the night of May 7. Days after the murders, a massive manhunt involving several local, regional, and national agencies was conducted near the town of Petrolia in Humboldt County where Miller’s truck and dog was found abandoned. After the trail ran cold, U.S. Marshals and other agencies were pulled from the case. The autopsies conducted by Dr. Susan Comfort from Shasta County indicated the cause of deaths were gunshot wounds.
Stonehouse indicated they have made contact with other agencies in neighboring states, particularly Oregon, and are working with them to continue to gather more information regarding Miller’s location. The Shasta County Sheriff’s Department still will not release the information found in a note Miller left in his truck before disappearing. Anyone with any information is urged to call the Shasta County Sheriff’s Department’s Major Crimes Unit at (530) 515-5041.
