However, his capture wasn’t made public knowledge until Monday afternoon. White stated the police have reason to think Miller and Wilson dated in the past and recently split up. White has stated that “domestic violence” remains a serious issue in the local area.
Wilson was trying to get into her 2020 Lincoln Nautilus when Miller allegedly kidnapped her at gunpoint at 7:40 a.m. on Saturday. Miller wore a wig and allegedly forced Wilson into a car before getting in himself to hide his identity.
