Latest on Fatal Highway Chase

Posted: Updated:

Yesterday a high speed chase turned deadly.  The suspect who started it all has been identified.  The man was a person of interest for a rape case earlier in the weekend and when approached, that is when things turned for the worse.

Lewis and Clark County Coroner Mickey Nelson, has identified the suspect as forty-nine year old Timothy Arnold Miller. 

Miller was a suspect in a rape case from a day earlier before starting a standoff with police at the Heidelberg near Division Street.  After an attempt to arrest Miller, a chase began when he failed to stop to which the Montana Highway Patrol was asked to assist.

After thirty minutes, Miller's F-150 was stopped in the median of Interstate 15.  He was found dead of a gunshot wound to the head according to the Cascade County Sheriff's Office. 

No officers were injured in the pursuit, and it is still unknown if Miller was shot by a pursuing officer, or if he took his own life.  The Cascade County Sheriff's Office says the case is still under investigation and that no other information will be released at this time. 

We will bring you more details, as new information is released.
