Tennessee | A 34-years-old man, Miller Harold, was arrested and charged with the murder of his unborn son. A most gruesome crime ever committed in Memphis.
According to reports, Mr. Harold and his 36 year old wife Dorothy, both were meth addicts. The couple had been married for 4 years but struggled with drug addiction after the death of their 2-year-old daughter and 1-year-old son in house fire.
The couple was attended a drug rehabilitation program for 2 years and stayed clean, but only for a short amount of time before relapsing, which lead to the horrific and gruesome fate…
According to report, at approximately 11:45 p.m. authorities responded to an emergency call by a neighbor of the Millers. Maggie Bonner called 911 after she saw Harold in his home covered in blood.
“Harold and his wife were arguing over her being pregnant and neither one of them were able to take care of the child because of financial issues.
Dorothy came over to my house to talk about her issues, and told me that she couldn’t kick her need for meth and she was 7 months pregnant and had been using meth the entire time of her pregnancy.
She told me that they were going to “tweak” for a little while to calm down. I asked her not to do it and told her she could stay at my house for the night, but she refused my offer and went back to her house around 9:30 p.m.
I know she struggled with drug addiction, but don’t we all have demons we fight in our lives? I can’t believe Harold would do such a thing to his own wife and unborn child,” according to the statement provided to authorities by Maggie Bonner.
When authorities arrived, they found Harold standing in front of his home, holding a large stew pot. Lt. Mitchells, one of the responding officers at the scene approached Miller and asked him what was in the pot!
“THIS IS MY SON IN THE POT OFFICER. I MADE A WONDERFUL STEW FROM HIS BODY AND HAD A COUPLE OF BOWLS OF IT. WOULD YOU LIKE TO TRY SOME?”
“I couldn’t believe what I had heard from his mouth. I took a glance into the pot and sure enough, I could see an arm inside the pot. It took everything in my power to restrain myself from ending Miller’s life right there for what I had witnessed. I ordered Miller to put he pot on the ground and I immediately handcuffed him. My partner went inside of the home and that is where we found Miller’s wife laying on the sofa with a large laceration to her abdomen.” said Lt. Mitchells.
The city’s coroners office responded to the scene and confirmed that Dorothy Miller was pregnant and that a baby was recently removed from her body. The umbilical cord and placenta were in a skillet on the stove slowly cooking.
Harold Miller was taken into custody and is being held without bail pending a psychological evaluation. Dorothy Miller was taken by authorities for an autopsy however initial reports confirmed she had died from an overdose of meth prior to the removal of the fetus.
