Ladontes Miller, age 34, died in an unusual way. He was shot, resulting in his death. This is not the unusual part of his murder. What was unusual about his slaying was that at the time of his death, he was having intercourse with a prostitute in a Mazda van.
An unknown person drove up to the vehicle, shot their gun at him, and then drove away. He was found by police “slumped over in the driver’s seat,” and was dead at the scene of arrival.
Police found the prostitute squatting behind the driver’s seat door, with her hands, face and clothing covered in blood. She denied prostituting herself, although she was having sex with Miller in the car and is a known prostitute.
On Friday night at 9:30pm, a local called to police to report hearing a loud noise, which must have been the gunshot.
Neighbors who saw Miller slumped over in his car with a woman in the back seat, who was “strung out” on drugs. She did not know Miller’s name and had met him earlier that day.
The prostitute did not give the police a lot of leads, as, from her own admission, she had just smoked crack.
Witnesses say they tried to help the woman out of the vehicle, but she shut the door and continued to use drugs in the back seat while Miller remained slumped over in the front. “She also was unable to tell me how many subjects there were,” the officer wrote in the report.” (The woman) informed me that she had just smoked crack. As a result, (the woman) struggled to follow my questions with any proper mental capacity.” Other witnesses say they heard a “pop” and then discovered the scene.
The woman, whom police describe as a “known prostitute,” was found with her hands, face, and clothing covered in blood, according to a police report. The woman told police that she met Miller that day and did not know his name. She denied prostituting and said she was just having sex with the man in the vehicle when someone in another vehicle shot him before driving away.
