What happened?

When Frederick left church, it wasn't his guardian angel who was watchingOn April 20, 2017, Frederick Miller was struck down as he left church after choir practice.

Why would anyone want to kill this dedicated high school teacher? And who would do it that way?

Was there any camera footage from outside the church to show how he fell?

No idea. If there is, I'm sure it will be shown here.

Maybe a teacher, because who the hell (of a student) will think to shoot a teacher. Yes, he could have made the student mad but a student would not have thought to have done this. It must have been a worker or someone close to him.

Although it seems strange, a student could have very easily done this. The student, however, would be somewhat psychotic. Despite the initial unlikelihood of it, we can't rule the possibility that it was a student out.

Why using this instead of a gun? There must be witnesses when this happened ---- just imagine if you see someone walking with a bow and arrows, wouldn't you be surprised?

The killer most probably used a bow and arrow to avoid drawing unwanted attention. Yes, you would be surprised but you would most likely think little of it. Furthermore, a bow and arrow is significantly cheaper than a gun is it not? I believe the suspect is someone with minor financial issues or, more likely, a student. This is because a student with an urge to kill would clearly need a weapon and a gun tends to be hard to obtain of you are a student thus you would look for an alternative. Perhaps a students parents were in possession of a bow and arrow? If they were then this would explain how the suspect, who I am assuming is a student, has such precision with the bow: the parents would have taught the suspect to use the bow as they grew up. As for a motive, the teacher can provoke a student in several ways such as giving bad marks, issuing unjustified sanctions etc.

Don't hold me down to any of this because this is literally my first time

it might have been a bow and arrow, he might have been too young to purchase a gun?

This is a crazy idea but what if he stabbed him with the arrow since he had to be facing him and it would also explain why the arrow is angled.

I don't think so, the witness saw him when he fell down, and it would take a hell lot of force to stab someone that clean and deep, plus his DNA could have been tracked etc hair or liquid or skin cells.

The arrow is slightly angled which most likely does not mean he was struck down from a roof top, that would be an embarrassing escape and take more then being struck down with people coming out. It might be from the trees and it must have been a...

The arrow is slightly angled which most likely does not mean he was struck down from a roof top, that would be an embarrassing escape and take more then being struck down with people coming out. It might be from the trees and it must have been a well fit man most likely taller then average. The person, if intended must have known his schedule and took time off.
