    PA - Natalia Andreevna Miller, 18, murdered, South Middleton Twp, 10 Dec 1993

    Natalia Andreevna Miller

    The victim was located on December 10, 1993 in South Middleton Township, Pennsylvania. She was identified in December 2004 as Natalia Andreevna Miller, a Russian citizen.

    Police used the Combined DNA Index System to match male DNA samples found on Miller's body to samples from a Rochester, N.Y., man registered in the system for sexual crimes. Theodore John Solano, was charged with criminal homicide in December 2004.

    Solano allegedly said he met a Russian woman of that description in 1993 near Washington, D.C., and married her so she could stay in the country. Solano did marry Miller on June 4, 1993, in Alexandria, Va. Evidence in Solano's home led them to her name.

    Police tracked down a host family Miller had lived with near Washington, D.C. and they provided the names of her parents, who live in Russia and had been searching for their daughter there, provided DNA samples that confirmed Jane Doe was indeed Natalia Miller. She was born Feb. 22, 1975, in Leningrad.

    From January 2008:


    Shugar, of St. Petersburg, Russia, said she had hoped that Theodore Solano would be executed for the 1993 slaying of Natalia Andreevna Miller, 18, a Russian immigrant he had wed in a marriage of convenience.

    Instead, Shugar and her daughter Vera sat in a Cumberland County courtroom Friday, watching grim-faced as Solano, 49, pleaded no contest to third-degree murder and kidnapping charges in return for a 17- to 40-year state prison sentence...

    Freed said investigators aren't sure what prompted Solano to kill Miller. They believe he strangled her with a brown leather belt, a piece of which was found beneath her body... Solano had no ties to the midstate and apparently dumped Miller's body at random, Freed said.
