As our readers know, we have been patiently waiting for a statement from the FBI regarding the Jan. 5 fatal shooting of Tyler Miller in Oak Creek Canyon. The FBI took over as the lead investigator, and other law enforcement agencies have deferred all questions to that federal agency.
We specifically reached out to the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office on Jan. 8, making CCSO fully aware we are waiting for updates on this case as they became available.
Late Tuesday, Feb. 13, the Arizona Daily Sun in Flagstaff published a story revealing details about the incident as reported by CCSO deputies.
We immediately contacted CCSO by email and phone and asked for a copy of the report the Arizona Daily Sun cited.
CCSO’s spokeswoman wrote back, “I’m not sure what statement other media outlets are reporting and attributing to us. The Coconino County Sheriff’s Office did not make any recent official statements about the shooting.”
