Victim’s Remains Recovered in Jason Miller Manslaughter Case The California Department of Justice provided assistance with the recovery

“Those who assist in the recovery of a victim’s remains have a very difficult job, however they are providing something for the victim’s family and that’s a sense of closure.  We thank the public safety and criminal justice professionals who conduct this work for law enforcement and also to help grieving families.” – CSLEA President Alan Barcelona

HUMBOLDT COUNTY - On May 2, 2023, Jason Miller, 42, pled guilty to voluntary manslaughter for the April 15, 2021, killing of Kiera Foley, 32, in Eureka. Miller also pled guilty to assault with a firearm on a second victim, and assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury on a third victim.

After entering his plea, Miller met with the Humboldt County District Attorney’s Criminal Investigations Division to provide information about the location of Foley’s remains. In collaboration with the Eureka Police Department, operations were conducted to recover Foley’s remains at a location on the outskirts of Eureka. The recovery was completed on May 10.  Foley’s family has been notified and will soon be provided with the opportunity to lay her to rest.

The Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office would like to give thanks and recognition to Humboldt County K-9 search and rescue dog teams; the Cal Poly Humboldt Anthropology Department; the California Department of Justice; and the Eureka Police Department, for their assistance with this recovery.

On August 24, Miller is expected to be sentenced, pursuant to agreement, to serve 25 years in prison.
