Øyvind Strømmen’s article covers the entire history of Miller along with the infamy of his associates and groups.
On April 13, the eve of Passover, three people were killed in two separate shootings in Overland Park, Kansas - one at a Jewish community center, one at a nearby Jewish assisted-living home called Village Shalom. William Lewis Corporon, a retired physician, and his 14-year old grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood, died after being shot at the community centre. Terri LaManno was killed in the Village Shalom parking lot.
The police soon arrested a suspect, a man in his seventies. A TV crew caught him yelling “Heil Hitler!” from the back of a police car. Although none of the victims was in fact Jewish - LaManno was a Catholic, the other two Methodists - the attack bears the hallmarks of an anti-Semitic hate crime.
On Sunday night, the authorities identified the suspect as Frazier Glenn Miller, a 73-year old living in the small town of Aurora, Missouri. While Miller appears to have acted alone, and is already being described as a “lone wolf”, he has had a long career in the American white-supremacist movement. He has been an activist, a leader, a publisher and distributor of racist newspapers and a perennial candidate in elections, having run in both Democratic and Republican primaries, as well as an independent.
