CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Last week, qnotes editor Matt Comer and contributor Todd Heywood published an in-depth report at Raw Story exploring accused Kansas City shooter Frazier Glenn Miller’s possible ties to a 1987 triple shooting at an adult bookstore in nearby Shelby.
Following that report, investigators with the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office say they are traveling Kansas to question Miller, according to a report that aired this evening from local news station WBTV.
“We are going to coordinate an effort between the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office and the Kansas authorities to make sure that avenue is explored,” Sheriff Alan Norman told WBTV.
Five men were shot and three died on January 17, 1987 at the Shelby III Bookstore, an adult bookstore that was known to attract a gay clientele. In 1989, two associates of Miller were charged with the crime and one, Douglas Sheets, was prosecuted. Miller testified as a witness for the prosecution, but Sheets was acquitted when prosecutors couldn’t put him at the scene. Two attorneys who defended Sheets told Raw Story last week they believe Miller should have been considered the prime suspect in the crime.
