Police, families appeal to the public for information in triple homicide
Members of the Ontario Provincial Police, Six Nations Police Service and a member of the Six Nations of the Grand River community today released more information regarding the deaths of the three local residents earlier this month.
At a media conference hosted by Six Nations of the Grand River, Detective Inspector Pete Liptrott – Major Case Manager with the OPP Criminal Investigation Branch – was accompanied by Acting Deputy Chief Darren Montour of the Six Nations Police Service and Sheri-Lyn Hill Pierce from Six Nations Elected Council to provide additional details of the investigation and more information on the victims.
On Sunday, November 4, shortly before 10:00 a.m., officers from the Middlesex County OPP Detachment and the Oneida of the Thames Police Service responded to a call for service in an area near Bodkin Road and Jones Drive in the Municipality of Middlesex Centre. Police were alerted to the presence of a grey pick-up truck in a field on private property off Bodkin Road. Upon further investigation, three residents of the Six Nations of the Grand River were found deceased at that location with the pick-up truck. They were identified as 33-year-old Alan Grant Porter, 32-year-old Michael Shane Jamieson and 37-year-old Melissa Trudy Miller. Police revealed Miller was seven months pregnant when she died. The pickup truck had been stolen and recovered with the victims’ bodies.
Police jointly reiterated their appeal for anyone with information about the victims or their activities leading up to their deaths and the discovery of their bodies to contact the toll-free tip-line at 1-844-677-5050, the Six Nations Police Service at 519-445-2811 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS). They also want to hear from people who may have any information or may have seen a grey, 2006 Chevy Silverado pick-up truck on Six Nations of the Grand River or in the area of Bodkin Road or anywhere between the two locations before the bodies were discovered.
The investigation is ongoing and further updates will be provided as they become available.
