Bollinger County, MO -- A cold case in Bollinger County gets some new interest. You may remember the investigation into the disappearance of 69-year-old Roger Miller in the early nineties. Miller disappeared from his Zalma home, and hasn't been seen since.
"I feel pretty confident something will surface here," Sheriff Terry Wiseman says, although he wouldn't elaborate on the leads he has. He simply says they've been a long time coming. Miller disappeared in October 1993. "Let's just say there are some suspects," Wiseman says.
Investigators believe someone killed Miller inside his home but they never did find his body; and while Miller was declared dead in Civil Court back in 1994, prosecutors would have to prove he was dead behind any reasonable doubt in Criminal Court. It was Miller's housekeeper, Mary McIntosh who first realized something was wrong. "I had known Roger for years. He was very organized and always had everything in place that's why with things out of place I didn't think he would do something like this," McIntosh says.
Her hunch proved to be right, and now McIntosh hopes police finally get the answers they need. "I think it's going to benefit everyone in the community. Roger was a good friend to me and I want to see it end. I want to see whoever did this put behind bars," she says.
