Authorities seek attempted homicide suspects


MISSOULA, Mont. - NBC Montana received new information on the search for two attempted homicide suspects out of Missoula County.

Officers say they shot and robbed a man, before leaving him for dead on interstate 90 between Clinton and Turah.

Missoula County Sheriff's officials shared a picture of a white 2001 dodge ram truck that the two suspects are believed to be in. Officials say the picture of the white truck is similar to the one the suspects may be driving.

That truck is believed to have Washington license plates #B21590T.

Troy Anthony Miller, one of the suspects, is from Washington. He has light brown hair and is believed to be armed and dangerous. The second suspect is Katherine Grace Evans from Florida and Georgia, who has brown hair.

NBC Montana talked to detectives on Saturday and they told us they were able to recover a Crown Victoria, the vehicle they say the two suspects were using before the truck.

"We have since recovered the Crown Victoria that used to belong to Troy and Kate but they're no longer in that. We've got that pending a search warrant in our evidence warehouse," said Detective Lieutenant Scott Newell with the Missoula County Sheriff's Office.

Officials say they will have a search warrant on the Crown Victoria early next week.

If you spot the truck or have any other information about the suspects, please call Missoula Crimestoppers at (406) 721-4444.
