ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Friends and family continue to search for answers in the murder suicide of a former Albany Commissioner.

Monday afternoon, GBI agents met with family members of Bill and Sarah Miller. Investigators believe 68-year old Bill Miller shot his 66-year old wife before turning the gun on himself. Family members found the two Saturday in their Youngblood Road home in Worth County.

Miller served on Albany's City Commission for 18 years from the mid 70's to the early 90's. An East Albany Community Center still bears his name. Former co-workers remember his legacy.

"He was just always there and you could always depend on him, he was reliable," said JoAnn Pope, former Albany City Clerk.

Miller also worked with the Dougherty County Police Department and as a paint contractor. He had suffered a stroke. This was southwest Georgia's fourth murder-suicide in less than two months. Funeral services for both will be held Wednesday at 3:00 PM at the First Baptist Church of Sylvester.
