The southwest Missouri man accused of killing three people last month outside two Jewish facilities in Overland Park appears to have conducted some research before the shootings.
Inside Frazier Glenn Miller Jr.’s Lawrence County home, authorities found a list of kosher places to eat, synagogue directions and a printout for the 2014 KC Superstar Competition. Auditions for that singing contest were going on inside the Jewish Community Center on April 13 when prosecutors say Miller — also known as Frazier Glenn Cross — shot and killed a devoted doctor and his grandson in the parking lot.
Those details, along with a long list of other items, were included in the returns of a search warrant the Federal Bureau of Investigation carried out hours after the shooting. The Star obtained the warrant return from the Lawrence County Circuit Court clerk’s office.
Bridget Patton, an FBI spokeswoman, said she could not elaborate on the search or what was seized at the home.
For decades, Miller has ranted about his hatred of Jewish people.
As he sat handcuffed in the back of a patrol car last month, the southwest Missouri man hollered “Heil Hitler” and then bobbed his head.
Miller, 73, is charged with capital murder in the killing of William Lewis Corporon, 69, and his 14-year-old grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood, outside the Jewish Community Center. He’s also charged with a separate count of first-degree murder in the death of Terri LaManno, 53, a few minutes later outside the Village Shalom senior care facility.
Miller is scheduled to be back in Johnson County District Court on May 29.
According to the warrant return, authorities also found several anti-Semitic newspapers and other literature. They seized several publications, including the “Confederate Leader” and “Aryan Alternative,” Miller’s self-published autobiography “A White Man Speaks Out,” a red T-shirt with a Swastika symbol and a file folder titled “Goin Underground and Declaring War Against The Government.”
Though no weapons were seized in the search, authorities did find three boxes of ammunition, a foam packing insert for a factory gun box and an owner’s manual for a Remington Model 870 shotgun. They also found what investigators labeled an “Aurora Advertiser invoice for 12 Gauge shotgun.”
Judy Dingman, general manager of the newspaper, said the invoice was for an ad placed in the publication.
“That ad is not in his name,” said Dingman, who did not elaborate.
