Attempt To Escape Leaves One Dead
07/14/2017

(KAIR)--An attempt to escape leaves a Saint Joseph, Missouri man dead.

KQ2-TV reports the burglary suspect died while hiding in the attic of a home.

He is identified by police as 52-year-old Tony Miller

The Buchanan County Sheriff's Office Thursday night was called to the home where they found two suspicious men. Despite both trying to flee on foot, one was apprehended quickly, while Miller fled inside the home

Deputies made their way into the home, with the man found in the crawl space of the attic.

Determined to have died, the Saint Joseph Fire Department was called to extract the body by cutting a hole in the side of the home.

An autopsy will be conducted, but the TV station reports that authorities suspect the high heat of the hiding space, which was more than 100-degrees, played a role in Miller's death.

The suspect apprehended at the scene is identified as Jason Griffey.

Authorities say he was taken into custody on an outstanding warrant.
