One of three victims found lifeless in Middlesex Centre on Nov. 4 was revealed to have been pregnant at the time of her death during a media conference on Thursday morning.
Provincial Police held the conference as they continue their search for those responsible in the killings of Alan Porter, Michael Jamieson and Melissa Miller.
Six Nations police acting deputy Darren Montour told reporters of Miller’s pregnancy during Thursday’s conference.
“She was carrying an unborn child, a little boy of seven months,” said Montour.
Fighting back tears, Miller’s brother Trevor Miller took time to briefly address the conference.
“Somebody come forward… I’m losing a nephew I’ve never even met now. Please somebody,” said Miller.
