A Nebraska man, who was caught by police strangling a convicted sex offender, has admitted to a string of murders, claiming to have killed “over 30” pedophiles.42-year-old Joel Miller was caught attempting to kill a notorious child abuser by police who were responding to a call for, what they thought, was an attempted robbery behind a MacDonald’s restaurant in Omaha.
Officers arrived to find Miller on top of the rapist, with his hands around his throat.
He was reportedly pleading with police saying, “just give me one more minute, I’ve almost got him,” but was forced to back down at gunpoint before he killed his victim.
Miller arrested for assault and attempted murder, but immediately opened up during questioning, admitting to killing more than 30 people already, all of whom were registered sex offenders.
Miller told investigators he started his killing spree after being a victim of a horrific crime himself, saying:
“I’ve been killing pedos and perverts for, damn, close to 15 years now,”
“It started a few years back, after a girl I was dating was raped and murdered.
“I tracked the guy down myself, slit his throat.
“I realized I had a real knack for it after that, so I kept going.”
He claims he had made a list of convicted sex offenders, and decided to focus on pedophiles after his friend’s daughter was molested, but justice never prevailed in the typical sense.
“A friend of mine – we go way back – his daughter was molested by his babysitter’s boyfriend.
“Everyone knew he did it.
“The police couldn’t prove it.
“The girl, she’s only 7, she clammed right up.
“Barely spoken since, and she won’t admit it.
“Well, I did the world a favor when I cut his d*ck off and rammed it down his throat.”
Miller says that his only regret is that he wishes he hadn’t gotten caught because he had the names of three more local “perverts” on his list that he wanted to “knockoff.”
Police say that, despite the “positive” nature of the crimes, Miller will still be more than likely sentenced to death for his crimes.Chief Mizner of the NE Police Department said in a statement:
“Although we can’t condone vigilate justice, you can’t help but ignore the positive effect it must have had on the community.
“If the suspect really did kill all of those known sex offenders, then he most likely spared a lot of innocent lives in the process.
“He understands the severity of what he has confessed to, but he seems to be at peace.”
Mizner said NEPD will launch a full investigation into the murders, but it may take “some time” with the historical crimes going back as far as 2002.
