KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The white supremacist accused of shooting to death three people outside Jewish centers in Overland Park was caught in the mid-1980s in a car with a black male prostitute dressed as a woman, a former federal prosecutor said Thursday.
Police in Raleigh, N.C., filled out an incident report after finding F. Glenn Miller Jr. in the car, said Douglas McCullough, who in 1987 prosecuted Miller on charges of possessing hand grenades and mailing a threatening communication.
“It was a male prostitute in a vehicle, and it was a Raleigh Police Department incident report,” said McCullough, now a judge on the North Carolina Court of Appeals.
“I don’t know if they actually took him into custody or just did an incident report about it because the police knew who he was,” McCullough said. “But I’m quite sure it was never prosecuted or anything like that.”
McCullough said he and other authorities learned of the incident as they were investigating Miller in 1987. He said authorities heard of no other cases involving possible sex crimes in connection with Miller.
Miller, 73, who also goes by Frazier Glenn Cross Jr., was arrested April 13 outside a school near the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park. He is accused of killing a doctor, the doctor’s teenage grandson and a mother of three outside the community center and the nearby Village Shalom senior living center.
Richard Cohen, president of the Southern Poverty Law Center, said Thursday that a police officer in North Carolina told his organization about the episode as they were preparing a case against Miller in 1986.
In the case, Miller was found in contempt of court after violating the terms of an agreement in a lawsuit settled with the Southern Poverty Law Center.
The center’s Heidi Beirich spoke with Miller about the issue in a recorded phone conversation last fall. Miller didn’t deny the incident, saying he had lured the prostitute to a meeting in order to beat him up.
“If you will check that particular police report,” he told Beirich, “you’ll find I had a blackjack, a night stick and a .38 loaded pistol.”
