Claire Miller Wiki – Claire Miller Bio
Claire Miller is a Pennsylvania teenager, who is facing charges after allegedly fatally stabbing her wheelchair-bound older sister—then hysterically calling 911 to confess to the crime.
She has been charged with homicide after calling authorities on Feb. 22 to admit she stabbed her older sister, 19-year-old Helen Miller, while her parents were asleep, according to the Lancaster County District Attorney’s office. The elder Miller, who had cerebral palsy, died from a stab wound to her neck.
She is 14 years old.
Claire Miller Murdered Her Sister
According to a probable cause affidavit obtained by The Daily Beast, the Manheim Township Police Department arrived at the home just after 1 a.m. to find Miller, a ninth-grader at a local private school, standing in front of the house close to “what appeared to be blood on the snow near the driveway.”
“Miller appeared to be attempting to wash her hands in the snow,” the affidavit states, adding that the teenager also had blood on her pants.
Police say Miller directed them into her older sister’s bedroom, where Helen found a “pillow with bloodstains” over her face.
One of the officers removed the pillow and “found a large knife in Helen’s neck, just above her chest.”
“Helen was lying on her back with her hands up near her head,” the affidavit states, adding that there was a “large amount of blood” pooled near her chest and bed.
Lifesaving measures were “unsuccessful” and she was pronounced dead at 4:13 a.m.

“When I heard about this I was almost instantly upset about it myself over the details that had been related to me,” Manheim Township Police Chief Tom Rudzinski told WHTM. “I don’t know that I have ever been a part of something that is quite as sad as this.”
Prosecutors and police, however, have not offered any details about a motive. An attorney for Miller did not immediately respond to The Daily Beast’s requests for comment.
“The investigators are going to be asking those types of questions, conducting those interviews of everybody that was involved, and trying to determine a timeline [for what] would have led to this awful event,” Rudzinski said.
