Clarke Weighs In On Miller Case
CBRM Mayor Cecil Clarke has publicly weighed in on the Clayton Miller case. Clarke says he supports Provincial Justice Minister Lena Diab’s decision last month to refer a recent report on the case to the medical examiner. 17 year-old Miller was found dead shortly after police raided a teenage drinking party in New Waterford in 1990. His parents have since accused police of a cover-up. Clarke has written a letter to Diab asking that the medical examiner be given the time to fully address the facts of the case and the allegations made against police officers. Clarke says that conclusive findings are needed for the sake of the Miller family, and police officers who’ve been under pressure and stress because of the case. The Miller case has received increasing attention in recent weeks, after a retired nurse posed questions about an autopsy that was conducted on Miller. The hacker group Anonymous recently released a statement in support of the Miller family, and hundreds of people lined the streets of New Waterford for a rally last weekend.
