The Suncoast Hotel & Casino is offering a $100,000 reward to anyone who provides information leading to the capture of a man who killed a Las Vegas woman five years ago, Metro Police said.
Julie Miller was shot and killed in the Suncoast’s parking lot during the afternoon of Aug. 23, 2005. She had been preparing to get out of her car with her husband, Roland, when they were approached by a man who demanded money. The couple was planning to go to the casino for lunch, police said.
The man allegedly pointed a gun at Miller’s husband and demanded money. During the struggle, Miller had tried to offer the attacker her change purse, police said.
After a struggle with Roland Miller, police said the man fired one shot. The shot went through Roland Miller’s shoulder, police said, and fatally injured Julie Miller.
After the shooting, the gunman ran east through the parking lot, where he got into a white or silver Dodge Magnum stationwagon, police said. The Dodge slowed so the gunman could get into the backseat, then sped away southbound, police said.
Roland Miller told police the suspect was a black man who was about 30 years old and 6-feet tall with a thin or medium build. The gunman was wearing a baseball hat, a khaki shirt and dark pants.
