Episode 30 – The Clayton Miller Story

Maureen and Gervaise Miller have been fighting for justice in their son’s case for over twenty four years. In May of 1990, their 17 year old son, Clayton, was found after a police raid on a teenage drinking party in the woods known as “the nest” in New Waterford, Nova Scotia. Clayton wasn’t found until two days after the party and the condition of his body immediately arose suspicion of the way he died. After years of inquests and inquiries going nowhere, the case has recently been re-opened after a retired nurse from Cape Breton found major inconsistencies in the previously performed autopsies. This is a story of Police coverups, evidence tampering and the tireless fight his parents took on in the pursuit of justice for over 24 years. Special thanks to Maureen and Gervase for allowing me to share their story. And special thanks to Ottawa Citizen reporter Gary Dimmock for allowing me to use his investigative article throughout the show.
