  1. I just wanted to let the sister of Retha know that I appreciate all the effort she has put into keeping this predator under supervision. I live int he neighborhood of his father and our lives have been turned up side down since finding out this man was to be released.Again thankyou so much to the sister of this beautiful young lady for your tireless efforts in keeping me and my family and neighbors safe

  2. My mom went to high school and was friends with Reatha and til this day shes still upset that Wes Miller did this to Reatha, they went to school together, just like the others she just didnt think it could have been Wes until everything came out into the open.

  3. I was a senior at Castleberry when this horrible crime took place. Seems everyone then knew both Retha and Wesley.
    But when it happened, it was so very hard to believe.
    I have followed the news regarding Wesley Miller, last time he was let out, he assaulted a woman in N.Fort Worth, and now TDC is letting him go.

    For someone to commit such a crime should never be on the streets, he’s done it before, he did it again, and how will society accept this man into their neighborhood without proof he will not do it again, Personally, I dont like him, dont trust him, and he should live out his life in a 8×10 ft cell for life.

  4. I am very sorry for the family of all that was hurt by this evil man Wesley Miller. I hope Retha can rest in peace. I am also sorry for the friends he targeted too 25yrs was not enough

  5. I remember that at the time Retha was murdered some of the boys who had been in Wesley’s home said it was not “normal”. I won’t go into to what they saw, but I doubt that all of what went on will ever be known. Whatever happened, he is nothing but a predator now and will continue to be.

    I remember a little about the Strattons in school. They were just regular people like most were in those days. I truly feel for their family for having to go through the unimaginable. What courage and character it took to keep Wesley from hurting others as long as they possibly could.

    I am glad that the story and his face has been on TV enough that people will recognize him. It just might save someone’s life.

  6. just because Wesley did this doesn’t mean the whole family is messed up.
