February 25, 2015

On Monday, February 3, 2014, The New York State Police responded to the Indian Hill Trailer Park, located on Route 48 in Phoenix, N.Y. Upon arrival the police found Anthony J. Miller dead in his trailer. He was the victim of a homicide committed by three young suspects during a burglary of his trailer.

Shortly after the reward was offered the Crime Stoppers hotline call center received an anonymous call from someone who had information regarding the murder of Mr. Miller. The information was immediately passed on to the New York State Police investigators who were working the case.

The information received by New York State Crime Stoppers from the anonymous caller was instrumental in assisting the New York State Police to identify three suspects. Thanks to the anonymous tip along with the excellent work of the New York State Police, three suspects were arrested and subsequently convicted of the murder of Anthony Miller.

The anonymous caller who provided vital information regarding the murder of Anthony Miller has recently received their reward from New York State Crime Stoppers. To protect the anonymity of the caller, no further information regarding the payment of the reward will be released.
