Foster parents arrested on rape, sodomy charges
By The Associated Press Thursday, November 17, 2005
SUNNY VALLEY, Ore. (AP) -- Two foster parents from Southern Oregon are facing charges of sexually abusing at least three children in their care, police said.
The case began when Josephine County deputies found a 13-year-old runaway last Sunday; the girl told them she'd left home to escape being sexually abused by her foster father, Greg Miller.
According to police, Miller and his wife Colleen were the adoptive parents of seven children between the ages seven and 15, who had been adopted from state agencies in Colorado and Utah within the past five years.
Detectives interviewed the children and learned that Greg Miller had alleged sexual intercourse with three of the female children, a 13-year-old and two 15-year-olds, officials said.
Colleen Miller allegedly engaged in sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old male child, police said. Deputies also believe she sodomized a 15-year-old female, officials said.
Detectives also were told that Greg Miller wed one of his foster daughters in a mock wedding ceremony at the family home, complete with wedding cake, a ring and a white dress, officials said.
Colleen Miller allegedly encouraged sexual relations between all seven of the children, according to a report in the Mail-Tribune newspaper of Medford. Statements from several of the children indicated that sexual contact between them occurred on a regular basis within the home, police said.
A search of the home Monday produced evidence supporting the children's' claims, according to police. Detectives found pornographic pictures, movies, marital-aid devices and the wedding dress reportedly worn by the 15-year-old girl, police said.
Police arrested Greg Miller Monday in Grants Pass. They tracked Colleen Miller to Lawrenceburg, Tenn., and arrested her on Wednesday. Her statements so far have implicated both of their involvement in the alleged abuse, police said.
Greg Miller is being held in the Josephine County Jail on three counts of rape. Colleen Miller remains in custody in Tennessee and is facing rape and sodomy charges.
The children were taken into custody by the Oregon Department of Human Services, where they will remain during the investigation.
Here is one for your ping list, not far from me either...
Probably because they couldn't find any evidence that these people went to church.
I bet if they found GOP literature and pamphlets, we'd hear about it. Democrat lit and pamphlets would be ignored as irrelevant to the story.
No, I was unable to find any evidence that any Greg Miller from Josephine County in Oregon donated money to any political party or candidate. Not for a lack of looking either.
These people should be shot.
Well, they do believe in weddings in a sick sort of way. At least they had it had home
This is one of the most disturbing stories I have heard in a long time. Those poor children--they were foster kids so they already had a lot of difficulties. Now this. I fear they have been damaged beyond repair.
Ain't good enough!
Hang 'em, by the feet, after covering with honey, in the woods... far from where ears can hear!
death penalty for ALL child molesters ........first time ........every time .......must say I like your method
Mock weddings for the purpose of "scene", don't really mean that they believe in weddings. In fact, their mockery of marriage, their treatment of the children, and their encouragement of sexual activity between the children leads me to believe that these people were sick bastards who lost themselves to their fantasies and then dragged the children into their dungeon.
Dungeon being the operative word.
My local papers, Grants Pass Courier and Medford Tribune, who don't have their front pages available online, did it in a back-handed way. (I had to get this story from a little paper more than a thousand miles away!)
Of course, they were also lecturing everybody not long ago about how it was so immoral not allowing homosexuals to have monogamous marriages, even though people voted to prohibit that here in Oregon...
Quickly and unceremoniously so...
Hey, just wait until we have to homosexual adoptions...
In fact, there was some homosexual abuse in the story, wasn't there?
Is here a punishment that would entail these two being sodomized to death?
The problem with the 50 whacks with the cane is that those two would like it.
Just shoot them.
Great, they are being taken in by the same idiots who handed the children over to these perverts in the first place.
