A thirty two year old cold case linked to Sabine Parish has been reopened in Vernon Parish Sheriff’s Office.
The remains of missing person, Pamela Miller, were ultimately found in Sabine Parish in 1989. The details of the original story are below.
May 29th, 1989
Thirty two long years have passed since Pamela Miller’s sister and brother in law reported her missing from Vernon Parish.
Pam had recently moved to Leesville from Colorado. Pam was a beautiful and outgoing 23 year old. She quickly made friends in Leesville.
Pam worked at Ford’s Dry Cleaners and Burger King in Leesville.
The night of May 29th, Memorial Day, Pam went to a local bar, the Instant Replay Lounge.
Pam was seen in the company of a local man prior to her leaving the club.
Pam was later seen using the pay phone at a store located at the intersection of Hwy 28 across from Hwy 117.
Pam spoke with some locals in the parking lot before driving away from the store and traveling North on Hwy 117.
Pam’s car was found along the side of Gill Hunt Road. The car was parked at a closed gate to one of her friend’s driveway.
Pam’s purse was inside the car. The only thing unaccounted for was Pam and her car keys.
Numerous persons of interest were interviewed during the course of the initial investigation.
Pam’s family was left to wonder where she was for almost 6 months.
On November 24th, 1989 a hunter scouting a remote area of Peason Ridge in Sabine Parish discovered human remains that were ultimately identified as Pamela Miller.
Thirty years later the VPSO Cold Case Team has reopened this homicide.
Not everyone approached for questioning in the initial investigation was cooperative. The male subject seen with Pam at the bar refused to provide a statement at the time. This subject agreed to a polygraph exam but when investigators contacted him to take the exam he referred them to his attorney. This individual still lives locally and as of yet has not cooperated with any investigation into this murder.
Pam’s death left her family devastated and wanting answers.
We believe that someone has information regarding Pam’s murder.
Since the reopening of this case Detectives have located and reinterviewed acquaintances and other potential witnesses involved in the case.
If you knew Pam or have any information related to her disappearance or death please contact VPSO immediately at 337-238-1311 to speak to Detective Jerry Twyman it Detective Rhonda Jordan.
Please help us find justice for Pam and her family.
