Oneida Co. SO following leads, asking for public’s help
By Eileen Persike
Oneida County law enforcement is continuing the search for a man they believe shot and killed a Rhinelander woman June 30.
Hannah R. Miller, 26, of Rhinelander was found dead of a gunshot wound or wounds on River Bend Road in the town of Pelican, near US 8 east. The suspect is Christopher Terrell Anderson, 30, with whom Miller has a child. Anderson, who also goes by DJ Bravo, or Bravo is Black, 5 feet 10 inches tall, 245 pounds and though he is pictured with dreadlocks, it is believed he has short hair currently. The child is safe and with family.
At a press conference Thursday, July 1, Oneida County Sheriff Grady Hartman said law enforcement needs the public’s help in locating two vehicles that Anderson may have driven. Both vehicles, a white PT Cruiser, Minnesota plate 187 NXC and a white Mitsubishi Outlander SUV, Wisconsin plate SJR 9672 are registered to Miller.
“I’ll remind everybody, it’s very easy to switch license plates,” said Hartman. “A couple screws is all, so maybe they don’t have the current plates.”
He added that Anderson’s whereabouts are unknown.
“We don’t know,” Hartman said. “He could be in the area, he could have left the area. But what we do know is those two cars belong to our victim, Miller. It’s very likely that one or both of those cars are still in this area, so we need to track those down.”
Hartman noted the crime occurred within sight of Highway 8 and is asking anyone who was in that area between 10:30 and 11 a.m. June 1 to call the sheriff’s office, 715-361-5201. He said it is believed Miller was killed at the spot at which she was located.
“We’d like [the public] to check their surveillance cameras at their houses – these Ring doorbells and cameras are becoming very common and see if they can spot either of these two white vehicles on the camera and if they do spot anything of interest, if they could call in we’ll follow up on that as well.”
The department is also looking for information from anyone who is friends with, or knows the suspect, in effort to gain intelligence to help locate him.
“We’re following up on leads, we’ve had a lot of help come in, locally, state and nationally,” Hartman said. “We’ve been inundated with help and we’re diligently following up on all possible leads.”
Anderson is still considered armed and dangerous and the public is warned against approaching the suspect.
“Clearly he is willing to kill, so yes, we’re very concerned that he will continue to make serious violent crimes so we would like to get him into custody as soon as humanly possible,” Hartman said.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Oneida County Sheriff’s department dispatch center, 715-361-5201.
