On Feb. 8, 1886, two men were ambushed on the south end of Mercer Island. George Miller, who was in a land dispute with one of them, was tried four times for murder. Was Miller an innocent man? On Saturday, Jan. 9, Tom Hitzroth, Chair of the City of Redmond Landmarks Commission, will share the results of his personal detective work.
