    AZ - BRYAN PATRICK MILLER - Vctims: Angela Brosso & Melanie Bernas, 1992-93

    Melanie (left), Angela (right)



    On Friday, Nov. 20, Angela Brosso's, 22, head was found in a stretch of the Arizona Canal about two miles south of where her body was found. Detectives scoured the areas where Brosso's body and head were found, but no significant leads or suspects developed.

    Then, on Wednesday, Sept. 22, 1993, less than a year later, another young woman was killed in the same area and in much the same manner as Brosso.

    Melanie Bernas, a 17-year-old Arcadia High School student, was murdered while riding her bicycle along the Arizona Canal. Bernas' body was found floating in the canal near the point where it crosses under the Black Canyon Freeway, about a half-mile north of Dunlap Avenue, and about 2 miles south of where Brosso's body was found.

    I remember these murders. I lived in Phoenix at the time. There is something very disturbung about the David Grubbs murder in Ashland Oregon in late 2011. There are similarities to the murders of these two girls and David Grubbs. He was, as they were, on a bike trail alone. Perhaps the killer is the same person, and he is older and rusty and could not, 1) Steal the victims bike after the crime, 2) completely decapitate the victim.

    The girl on the bike happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.
    The killer was there reminiscing about the murder the year before and or perhaps was looking for a new spot for another victim, and the girl on the bike happened to come by and became a victim. This is definitely someone local and lives within the general area where the bodies were discovered. He may had have business out there, or a reason for being in the area without drawing suspicion to hi8mself if any one seen him there. May had been a work vehicle of some kind like a van utility truck but just guessing on both. If there has been no more killings in that area, he may have become spook by the girl on the bike and has since stopped killing. But that is just a guess also and all the above is nothing more than speculation and assumptions with guesses based upon what I have read here.

    I thought the fact the boyfriend at the time of her disappearance has started posting regularly to answer questions would have attracted more attention to the case?..

    This is really interesting. I read threw the whole thread and walked away convinced the killer of both these girls was the one posting and having a conversation with Sandybeaches. Very weird.

    I think his dna was left on both people. So he may have gotten caught via dna database. Or he told somebody and they told the authorities who then matched his dna.

    Police closed in on the suspect Tuesday evening in the neighborhood near 7th Street and Hatcher. Officers arrested 42-year-old Brian Patrick Miller. He faces two charges of murder...

    The murders went unsolved for years. Then in 1999, investigators were able to link the cases together using DNA and forensics.

    In 2011, a cold case squad reviewed the case and got a lead, but it took a few more years to track down that lead.

    Not through the data base. According to this article and video, the cold case unit was given a name and they somehow got his DNA and it matched. Also one of the 2 people living in the home was a hoarder so there is a lot of junk to go through.

    Police arrested Miller at his home, which he shared with his teen daughter, ABC 15 reported. Investigators will spend the next few days searching the hoarder’s home, which is packed with accumulated stuff, police said.

    Miller moved from Arizona to Washington state after the murders, but eventually moved back to Phoenix, police said. Arizona officers are working with Washington police to see if Miller’s DNA could match unsolved crimes there, too.

    So he is the hoarder. I feel sorry for his daughter.

    An anonymous tip to police in 1994 originally put Miller's name in the case file, but he "fell under the radar and ended up getting married and moving to Washington State," Sgt. Trent Crump said.

    <snip> Crump tells ABC15, Miller's conviction as a juvenile for stabbing a woman at Paradise Valley Mall in 1989 was partially the reason why undercover detectives sought out a DNA sample.
