Police Watchdog Investigating Clayton Miller Case
The mother of Clayton Miller says someone is finally listening after the province’s police watchdog announced yesterday it’s investigating an allegation surrounding the death of the New Waterford teen. The Serious Incident Response Team says it’s looking into a report that a current member of the Cape Breton Regional Police may have undisclosed information regarding Miller’s death. The 17 year-old’s body was found at the site of an outdoor teen party in 1990. Since that time, his parents, Maureen and Gervase, have been keeping up a campaign arguing that their son died under suspicious circumstances and that there was a cover-up. SIRT director Ron MacDonald say he and the province’s chief medical examiner, who’s also looking into the case, will meet with the Millers next Thursday to gather any information the couple might have. Regional Police spokesperson Desiree Vassallo says the force will not be commenting on the SIRT investigation while it’s underway.
