1997- Ronald Miller

Gene and Nora Lum were implicated by a series of recordings in campaign finance violations involving the Commerce Department. Dynamic Energy Resources, Inc. had hired Ron Brown’s son Michael solely for the purpose of funneling $60,000 through him to the Commerce Secretary, according to Nolanda Hill’s testimony. The Lums were sentenced to prison for campaign finance violations, using “straw donors” to conceal the size of their contributions to various candidates.

Ronald Miller was the man who tape recorded Gene and Nora Lum and turned those tapes (and other records) over to congressional oversight investigators.

Ronald Miller suddenly took ill on October 3rd,1997 and steadily worsened until his death 9 days later. (This pattern fits Ricin poisoning.) Owing to the strangeness of the illness, The Oklahoma State Medical Examiner’s Office promptly ran tests on samples of Ron Miller’s blood, but has refused to release the results.
