Body of Tennessee Election Official Found in Trunk of Burning Car

Published July 19, 2010

| Associated Press

MADISONVILLE, Tenn. -- A Monroe County election official says the chairman of the local election commission has been found dead after his car was discovered burning.

James R. Brown, the election administrator for the county, said Monday that the body of Monroe County Election Commission Chairman Jim Miller was discovered by firefighters after they extinguished the blaze on Saturday night.

A Monroe County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman said Monday that investigators are awaiting preliminary autopsy results.

Sweetwater attorney John Cleveland released a statement from Miller's family in which Vicki Miller thanked those who had offered her family condolences in the death of her husband.

The election administrator said Miller became chairman of the commission in April.

A Monroe County deputy has been suspended in connection with the investigation into the probable death of prominent Monroe County businessman and political figure Jim Miller, the sheriff said today.

In another development, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation announced that it has set up a special tip line dedicated exclusively to this case.

Monroe County Sheriff Bill Bivens confirmed this afternoon that the deputy, Kenny Hope, has been placed on administrative leave with pay but would not discuss the specific reason for the suspension or details of the case.
