BROKEN BOW, Neb. (WOWT) - Law enforcement in Custer County is investigating a suspected murder-suicide after two people were found dead.

According to the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP), at roughly 1:45 a.m. Friday, local law enforcement in Custer County requested assistance from the NSP to investigate a homicide in Broken Bow.

Investigators found Angie Miller, 45, deceased in her home on the 800 block of 13th Street in Broken Bow. NSP named Angie Miller’s ex-husband, Ryan Miller, 47, as a suspect in the case.

After finding a spot frequented by Ryan, around 4:45 a.m., investigators found him in a pasture near Anselmo. Investigators say Ryan Miller was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

According to court records, Angie Miller was an elementary school counselor at North Park Elementary in Broken Bow. She graduated from Broken Bow Public Schools and got her degree at the University of Nebraska Kearney. Angie Miller divorced from Ryan Miller in 2020. They had three children.

The case is being actively investigated by NSP, the Custer County Sheriff’s Office and the Broken Bow Police Department.
