Miller family

Community members are horrified and searching for answers after a beloved citizen of Hutchinson, Kansas, was shot and killed by a federal officer while traveling to a spiritual retreat.

Tyler Miller, 51, was driving on a curvy, mountain road in the Coconino National Forest in Arizona when he lost control of his pickup truck and hit a large rock, according to a report from KWCH News. However, the details regarding what happened between the time Miller crashed and the time a federal officer opened fire on him, are still largely unknown.

Attorney Matt Bretz confirmed that the Miller family is still awaiting more information from the FBI, which is currently investigating the shooting:

“He was on his way to a spiritual retreat north of Sedona. The road is a bit curvy. He lost control of the vehicle, went off the road and hit a large rock, and then it becomes rather vague as to what happened, and the FBI hasn’t been able to tell us or hasn’t told us yet. At some point after the collision, Mr. Miller exited his vehicle, and was shot by a forest ranger.”  

The Sedona Red Rock News reported that the shooting occurred around 4:15 p.m. on Jan. 5, and the U.S. Forest Service employee involved was female. The FBI was called to investigate the shooting because it happened on federal land.

A statement from the FBI’s Phoenix office claimed that a U.S. Forest Service officer “stopped to help” Miller after he was involved in a wreck. However, the agency did not include details about what occurred when the officer approached Miller, how long the encounter lasted, or why it turned deadly.

The FBI did admit that Miller was not armed, and it claimed that all that is known about the incident right now is that after Miller “got out of his crashed vehicle a U.S. Forest Service officer shot [Miller] near the scene of the accident.”

The agency has also given conflicting reports concerning the status of the officer who killed Miller. While the initial report stated that “a Forest Service law enforcement officer who was involved in the shooting was not injured,” an update to the original story from KWCH claimed that “the officer was also wounded in a subsequent altercation.”

The FBI has not said if the officer who shot Miller was wearing a Body Cam, and it has not indicated whether the Dash Cam footage from the incident will be released. The agency has confirmed that it will turn the case over to the U.S. Attorney’s Office to determine if the officer will face charges.

Bretz told Fox 10 Phoenix that Miller was “a kind, hard-working businessman, and was married to his high school sweetheart for 28 years.” His wife and four sons are now left searching for answers about what led up to his tragic death.

“If you were to ask about what is most memorable characteristic is, most people would say his smile,” Bretz said. “For the family trying to understand what happened, it’s just unimaginable.”  

The Hutchinson News described Tyler Miller as “everyone’s best friend” in a heartfelt tribute that told the story of his impact on his community. In addition to owning several businesses in the town, Miller also influenced the lives of the people around him by giving them a second chance.

“He trusted people. He gave jobs to people everybody else had turned their backs on. Ty would give them a hand up and a chance,” said Christine Throckmorton, who has worked for Miller for eight years.

Beau Erhardt, a bondsman who worked for Miller’s company, told the Hutchinson News that he will be remembered as a man who would have done anything for his family.

“Above all, he was a family guy, and he thought the world of his wife and sons,” Erhardt said. “He never missed his sons’ ball game or wrestling match. Because he was very centered around family, so he wanted to know his friends’ families.”

Erhardt said Miller was generous to both his employees and to other members of the community. One week ago, he was ordering lunch at Chick-fil-A when he decided to pay for the meals of the people in line behind him. “Ironically, they were police officers,” Erhardt said.

    Case closed. Move along.
    “Discover the FOREST!” has a NEW paradigm, added to Missing:411……

    • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

      That video dude in Japan sure “discovered the forest,” eh?

  • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    This man’s family should return the favor.

    The ranger should never make it home again, just like his victim.

    • elbustaroyjetspeekerson

      Amen, Rev. AMEN.

    • Cynical Old Bastard

      This might be bad, Rev. First I’ve heard of this story and I live an hour north of Hutchinson.

      This might be real bad.

      • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

        Keep us in the loop.

        • Cynical Old Bastard

          I shall try. I’ve got emails out looking for info. This person might be related to one of the farmers I work for. Nothing confirmed yet.

        • Cynical Old Bastard

          Update: Not one of mine. Though saddened, I am also relieved. I have chicks coming in 4 weeks, a brooder to build, as well as dogs to care for, the Doc’s cattle to feed, a heater install to fiinish, and fence to build. No time for BS interruptions.

          Still no actual news on any local radio or word of mouth.

          Beginning to suspect this is another BS story.

      • rich echo

        Care to elaborate?

        • Cynical Old Bastard

          A farmer I work for over in the next county. is named Miller and he has a son down in Hutchinson who just took a trip to AZ. Now I can’t get in touch with either he or his wife.

          These are good folks. Old-fashioned folks. Apple-pie Americans who won’t hesitate to take up arms. If they do I have no choice but to stand with them.

          • rich echo

            Ok I see. The time of enough is enough is certainly upon us. My prayers go out to whom ever the loved ones are. If you don’t mind can you update us on whether or not its Miller you spoke of? Blessings to you and yours!

          • Cynical Old Bastard

            Update. Not one of mine.

    • Rick E.

      Actually I believe that the cop was a female forest ranger, but I will bet that when the officer tells the story it will read something like “I believed I was in fear for my life”, OR “Shucks, I thought he had a weapon”.
      However maybe the feds will release relevant and truthful info on how it went down–but I wouldn’t bet the farm on it.

      • White Widow 2007

        And she will have nothing to blemish her record. No Justice in ‘merica any longer….so fucking sad!

  • jimmy joe

    Don’t expect any kind of justice either. Since the terrorists are investigating their own federal pig, expect nothing!! Funny how EVERYTHING is “law enforcment” now. The entire corrupt syndicate is only concerned with throwing honest, decent americans into the nations private prisons. You can’t even go camping for chissakes, without the worry of being thrown into private jails!! Something real bad is brewing in this fucked up country!! I actually can’t wait for it to happen!!

    • elbustaroyjetspeekerson

      Or worse. Ever hear of David Paulides? Here:

      That oughtta keep ya occupied AND horrified for quoite awhile. Scroll down to the actual show interviews; I think the one from Dec. ’16 is particularly scary. It all ties in with the “Discover The Forest” ads on AM talk radio that started appearing just a couple of weeks after his 1st interview on “Close2Toast”. Damage Control at it’s most obvious, meaning Mr. Paulides is truly onto something HUGE here…..

    • Smarty

      I can’t wait either. Let’s get on with it. The sooner it starts, the sooner it’s over with…

  • Cynical Old Bastard

    Uh-oh. This might have done it.

    We are armed here and not afraid of the federal government.

    I shall be following this story very closely.

    • Smarty

      Please keep us posted with any updates that don’t make the “news”, which I expect will be all of them…

      • Cynical Old Bastard

        I’ll try. I’ve got several emails out right now.

  • Smarty

    Well, this was pretty much the guy’s on fault. I mean, come on. He left his home. Everyone, by now, should know that when you leave your home, you’re VERY likely to be killed by some form of “law enforcement”. It’s common knowledge that you are risking your life, any time you encounter one of these prison cell leasing agents up close, or even from afar. He decided to take the risk of leaving his home, so he has nobody to blame but himself….


      I didn’t realize that you’re even safe in your own home. The IDF trained thugs have been known to stray unwelcomed onto private property as well.

      • William Henry

        And even if they claim they had a wrong address and were at your home for the wrong reason, somehow that too is covered up and nothing happens to them. At least Indiana passed a watered-down law that said you could fire back at them.

    • RJ O’Guillory

      …as one of six kids who were raised by corrupt law enforcement parents, I often interact with people who want to blindly defend the police, no matter the circumstance. Having first hand experience…and being able to articulate the systemic corruption in both Law Enforcement and Government in general…(I was a Federally Protected Whistle Blower for two decades)… I debate with people who have no clue as to the violations of our rights. As an epileptic who has terrible post-seizure-fugue-states… meaning that for about a half-hour after a seizure I can complete remarkable tasks, and have no idea I’m doing so…nor any memory of having done it….I often have no idea of what I’ve done until after a seizure. I’ve already had one instance where I woke up with about ten cops on top of me, asking me if I was on drugs, as I’d been found wandering the streets in my PJ’s. So this fascist police state that we live in is very dangerous for people with loss-of-cognition conditions or illnesses. My experience was almost 12 years ago, but if the same thing happened today I’d probably be shot dead for non-compliance. In this case in Arizona, either something happened prior to the shooting which perhaps caused the accident…or maybe the accident caused a lack of cognition on the victims part…thus resulting in his being shot for non-compliance from the frightened federal thug?

  • Jas

    Sounds like the FS vehicle was involved, or following close behind because people usually get out after a few choice words to look at the damage.

    • doodaa

      I wouldn’t be surprised if she ran him off the road while on her cell phone. I would have called her a dumb-a*s, officer or not.

  • Fearthenut

    The FBI’s got it. Nothing to worry about. Easy peasy just like Las Vegas!!

    • RJ O’Guillory

      …I’m so relieved…

  • Brian Smith

    How about we wait until the investigation is over until we pass judgement? The guy could have been drunk and attacked the officer for all we know. SHTF quickly loosing credibility printing this trash. You have all this testimony an the victim but nothing on the officer or the circumstances of the shooting. This is exactly how FAKE NEWS starts…

    • Daniel Platten

      I think he had an atom bomb right Brian Smith?

      • jimmy joe

        Or worse yet, threatened her at finger point, forming his hand in the shape of a “gun”, and, due to his hand looking like a “gun” now, she feared for her miserable life!!

        • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

          It was a Pop-Tart bitten into the shape of a gun. . .

    • RJ O’Guillory

      …could Brian be a cop? Probably…

    • Justin Thought

      Sure, Brian. After all, it’s “departmental policy” that when you come up on an accident, the first action is to shoot the driver. After all, they probably damaged property that belonged to the government. That CAN NOT be tolerated!

    • Justice4AllNow


  • dav1bg

    The FBI has it, we should have the truth shortly, just like in Las Vegas. Wonder if he was a doctor who had found the cure for cancer?

  • Phil_Ossifer

    “Don’t worry, I’m from the government, I’m here to help you…” BANG! “Well, he’s been helped. NEXT!”

  • idontknow

    I don’t want to hear that people are “horrified”. I want to hear that they have finally grown the balls to realize that we don’t have to be victims!

    I want to hear that they have torn the fed limb from limb and pissed on his remains…

    • Sallie Ann

      Don’t hold your breath there fella!!!!

  • Sallie Ann

    A great deterent to discovering our National Forests!!!!

  • White people are 6 times more likely to be shot by a cop than blacks so be careful out there!

    • It was probably a Female Black Forest Ranger. She was afraid because he was white.

      • Gary

        And male. 🙂

        • Yes, male. That makes the fear factor go up a bundle. I’ll bet she ran him off the road and then had to protect herself. He may of called her a name or something.

  • IrishPotatoGun

    Upstanding, on your knees, laying prone, running away, or in their custody, they have shot unarmed Americans in every position but standing on our heads. Difficult to do that with their boots on our necks, but they will find a way, probably a boot on both sides.

  • White Widow 2007

    The evil forces are at work, please pray for the family.

  • ChemicalDeath

    Trigger-happy bastards!

  • randy wellman


  • ThePurpleCrab

    A large segment of current law enforcement officers are not qualified to be in law enforcement.

    • EmilyEnso

      You wouldn’t want to see what they are doing to the British police.
      Islamifying it.
      Forcing out white officers – even with commendations and bravery awards and bring in islamics – with no police experience – loads of them.
      Of course the result is that tthe police are just not dealing with actual crime anymore.
      Shoplifting, burglary even thuggery and violence – now all no longer investigated.
      Facebook and all ‘hate crimes’ have dozens of police working on them – hundreds in Laodon alone its claimed.
      Ordinary people are losing any faith or confidence in them

    • EmilyEnso

      Further to my comment below
      Says it all about British cops.

    • John C Carleton

      The problem IS law enFORCEment.
      i miss American Peace Officers.

    • EmilyEnso
  • Vic Pittman

    I’m guessing the trigger happy bitch that killed him was ex military..

  • Zaphod Braden

    Have you noticed there are no massive funerals with TAXPAYER FUNDED police cars/equipment and TAXPAYER PAID police saluting for the VICTIMS of police MURDERS?
    Where is the recognition and apologies to the VICTIMS of their BLUNDERING???
    The cowardice of hiding criminal assault behind lies of “resisting arrest” and “I was in fear for my life” should immediately disqualify for life anyone from ever engaging in “law enforcement” .

  • James

    He was in site of a cop. The cop was in fear of its life. For many good reasons before & up till this. The cop is now in more fear of its life so will need to shoot more people. American cops in action.

  • Roy Hobs

    “Live PD” was in my area last year. So, have been watching to see the incident.
    I have the solution! Have a camera crew follow every Federal and State agent who carries a gun. Problem solved.
    The officers on ‘live pd’ are amazingly professional.

  • Anti Everything

    Well, I wonder if any of this is true. If it bleeds it leads, if it has mystery to keep the dopes on dope it leads. Which does this fit under?

  • don sheets

    Do unto others as you would have others do unto you. Sooo Hard, just can’t.

  • Alpin Thueson

    My guess is Miller was run off of the road and hunted down for seeing something he wasn’t supposed to see.

    • jimmy joe

      It certainly wouldn’t be the 1st time!

  • Since he was headed for Sedona, they’ll attribute it to a alien abduction.

  • Jimmy Yost

    I wonder if she was on some SSRI drug like Prozac.
