In Loving Memory
James W. Miller
Eccentric Billionaire, Questionable Father,
(Un)Loving Husband, Blackmailed Brother, Boss
It is with great longing and unspeakable sadness that we say goodbye to one of the most successful businessmen and prominent billionaires ever to grace Tahoe County. Earlier this week, James W. Miller was brutally slain in an act of cold blood at his own estate. At this time, authorities have no leads on a suspect or motive.
James W. Miller was born right here in Tahoe County and spent his childhood at Heavenly. It was at the age of 20—when his uncle Kent (a good guy) met an untimely demise—that Mr. Miller inherited the family’s grand estate and its insurmountable wealth.
Over the years, Mr. Miller increased his wealth exponentially as a prominent art collector and distributor. He leaves in his wake one of the finest private art collections this world has ever seen.
All evidence collected so far has been inconclusive; investigators have ruled out suicide and misadventure, stating that “James Miller was willfully slain by someone he had no reason to fear and in whom he had perfect confidence. We’ll be looking very closely at the victim’s friends and relatives.”
Mr. Miller’s lawyer, Matthew Marcus, has asked that the investigation be postponed until family and friends have had a chance to gather and to pay tribute to Mr. Miller at Heavenly Estate during the reading of his will.
