I think both, but I'm appalled that TBI thinks we are stupid enough to believe that that little woman could hoist 'dead' weight (pardon the pun), into the trunk of his car, and set him on fir. Pleassseeee

I heard it was mob related. No way that little Ho could have done all that. Can't wait til the movie comes out.

I usually know everything there is to know about everything, but this one has me puzzled so far as motive is concerned. What reason could she have to do this? Did anyone see her pic? I guarantee Mr. Miller was not involved with her. I read somewhere she might have rented from him, surely she'd not kill a man because she didn't have his rent money. Maybe it was simple robbery. I wonder if Mr. Miller had any medications she might have wanted. She looks pretty junked up in the pic, them hippies get all potted up and are capable of near anything. On the message boards people keep saying "she couldn't lift his body by herself" she didn't have to, she probably ordered him into the trunk at gunpoint, and then shot him. I'm not saying she didn't have help, just that it's possible she could have pulled it off without it. Was the car found in a place that was on his regular way, or someplace he never goes? If he didn't drive his car there, she must have had an accomplice. I'm guessing her core motive had something to do with feeding an addiction. I'm Super Genius Amateur Private Investigator Scoop Lenscap, and I'm gonna get to the bottom of this case.

unfortunately, i lived on all sides of this horrible crime. i am close friends with mr millers brothers, i knew mr jim miller, i know mr kenny hope( the former police captain that was wrongly; sptitefully. politicaly motivated, acussed of this murder.) and i know family members of this girl.the torture is horrible on and in alot of people in this crime.. i feel so sympathetic for mr. jim miller for haveing been murdered and tortured in such a way, and his bothers and other family members, i also am so sympathetic for mr kenny hope, his life was ruined . his reputation smeared,and his heart and sole broken. he was tortured in a way also. the girl that they arested , i was told by her family she was a meth user. her family never saw this coming .there are alot of question unanswered by alot of people, i just hope this case is handled properly, effectively.and its not another case like monroe county has seen in the past.. mr. ireland eugene green and his girlfriend caroline, were both murdered in their home, over meth, yet no one has served time, the killers walked. pray that our justice system will work for mr miller.. . yet mr hope will never recover. there will be no justice for him. pray that any and all people that killed mr miller is punished. alot of people have lost sleep over this. i am sure there is more to come. maybe monroe county learned a lesson from mr troy green murder and ireland eugene green and caroline murders- they are taking their time to get this one proccessed. right. i hope any way. wake up monroe cointy. we have to help stop polical motivation lies. we have to help stop our county from being taken over by meth. we have to stand by our innocent good police officers. mr miller was in polotics. i dont think he was killed for that reason . but mr hope being faulsely accused was

I think its possible for her to load his body in the trunck,drugs can make you do crazy stuff but its really hard to believe she did this on her own....Ive heard alot of storys about the troy green murder and they have charged the wrong man from what i hear,Im thinking they have an innocent man charged w murder..

Well I am unsure where a-lot of you are getting your information from and I feel Like Been that I live in this town I have that right to open my 2 cents on this matter.
1. Jim Miller knew Jessie very well a lot of younger Ladies new Jim Miller very well.
2. Yes I think that Steal Had a lot of blood on his hands in this one. I know him very well.
3. I also think that even if Jessie and Steal witch is the dad of the Baby she is having, Its more to that if you really look into the past with this County.
4. Mr. Bill Bevens our Head man Well look him up with all his pasted within the past 3-5 years I wonder why he is not in jail for real People Look at our Runners I bet you will find out a lot of things

Well for starters I'm unsure if they think we the people are stupid But I am very sure that She had a hand in it But with the help of our Superior's Our County is not for the people and if you will look more into this you will get the REAL TRUTH OF THE MATTER.

What an ignorant, backwoods hillbilly comment. I hope you haven't reproduced, and passed this ignorance on to another generation. "All potted up" LMMFAO!! Maybe all tweaked up on meth and alcohol. It would be a much more mellow, peaceful world if everyone was "all potted up", my friend. Alcohol is wayyyyyy more dangerous than pot is, that's a proven fact. You sound like a bad "Reefer Madness" propaganda commercial.
