Canvass – victim's co-workers
On October 30, 2020, Detectives Murphy and Armstrong spoke to Frederick Miller's co-workers at Yoknapatawpha High School, where he taught biology and was the assistant coach of the archery team.
YHS faculty and staff were asked about Frederick Miller's standing as a teacher and other observations made by his fellow teachers.
The interviews summarized are some of the most typical or relevant to the investigation and are representative of all interviews conducted.
Langston Brown has been the principal at Yoknapatawpha High School for the last ten years. He made the final decision to hire Frederick Miller based upon his credentials and his firm stance as a teacher who follows the rules and makes sure that his students do the same.
Over the years, Mr. Miller got favorable reviews from Mr. Brown. However, he did describe Frederick making numerous complaints about his fellow teachers as well as the archery coach Travis Lancaster who he claimed Mr. Miller wasn't fulfilling the duties of the role.
Mr. Brown said he had counseled Mr. Miller about the importance of supporting each other and wouldn't be receptive to any more complaints unless they were of a crucial nature.
