Yes, Lester was shot numerous times and his TEN year old child found him.
I can't believe that this happened to this man and his children. The bastard responsible is a cold hearted criminal and I hope the police find him.

Police arraign suspect in Princeton homicide

By BILL ARCHER and GREG JORDAN
Bluefield Daily Telegraph

PRINCETON — A suspect in the death of a Princeton man was arraigned on a charge of first-degree murder Friday evening in Mercer County Magistrate Court.

The Mercer County Sheriff’s Department confirmed Friday afternoon that a 58-year-old white male who was a resident of a home on Harley Drive, Princeton died Thursday at his residence.

Mercer County Prosecuting Attorney Timm Boggess identified the victim as Lester Sloane, and said that the Mercer County Sheriff’s Department has a suspect in custody.

Later than evening, Bruce Lee Milam, 33, of the Spanishburg-Kegley area was brought before Magistrate Mike Flanigan for arraignment. Milam is being held without bond at the Southern Regional Jail near Beckley. Bond in cases of first-degree murder must be set by a circuit court judge.

“This investigation has been a joint effort on the part of the Mercer County Sheriff’s Department and the West Virginia State Police,” Boggess said.“Both agencies worked this investigation together, both agencies were at the crime scene shortly after the crime was reported and both agencies worked very hard together,” Boggess said.

“We’re all working very hard on the investigation,” Captain Darrell Bailey of the Mercer County Sheriff’s Department said.

Detective L.B. Murphy of the Mercer County Sheriff’s Department said after the arraignment at the Mercer County Courthouse Annex that the victim had “suffered severe stab wounds and slices to the neck area.”

Robbery appeared to be the motive, Murphy said.

Murphy, Detective R.M. Combs and Detective D.W. Sparks had apprehended the suspect within 17 hours. Milam was located in the Lindside community in Monroe County. Combs said the sheriff’s department wanted to thank both the Princeton Rescue Squad and the West Virginia State Police for their help in the case.

Some residents of the community appeared to be almost in a state of shock Friday as the regional media gathered to report on the incident and other people drove through the area to look at the scene. A neighbor characterized the victim as a “kind person,” but asked not to be interviewed on record.

With the exception of the curious visitors, most homes in the community showed no signs of outdoor activities taking place at mid-day on Friday. Investigators received the initial call at about 8 p.m., Thursday, and were on the scene until shortly before noon on Friday.

I'm one of Lester Sloan's neighbors and have been so saddened and depressed since his awful death. I have seen his little daughter visit him a lot and my heart goes out to her and the rest of his family. All of you (family) are in our prayers.

I am sorry to hear what happened to Mr. Sloan. I know the accused person that did this and as I know his family. He was a violent teen that dated my sister and was abusive to her. Personally I would like to see him off the streets so that he cannot abuse anyone else.

Id like to know who u r Bruce is my uncle id like to know who ur sister is because Iv known him all my life and i have NEVER known him to be abusive to any woman... He was dating my step sister before he went to jail for the murder charges and they had a good relationship even though they had the drug problems and he was with an older woman from the time he was 16 til he was 30 years old and he wasnt abusive to her so i think u just HATEN!!! Get a life and quit talkin trash bout shit u know nothing bout!!!! Bruce Milam is a GOOD man he just hooked up with the wrong girl who he worshiped and In my opinion I think she talked him into robbing Mr.Sloan and she stabbed him first and then he just cut his throat to finish him off u know nothing bout him so keep ya mouth off my family u dont know any of them personally

I was friends with bruce years ago before he started getting into drugs, at that time he was one of the most kind hearted fella you could have known, this is a sad situation i feel sad for both families, lesson to be learned here: don't do drugs.
