Scott Milliman’s Brother Kurt Killed

The Northwest Herald doesn’t make the connection on the exclusive story that McHenry County Sheriff Keith Nygren handed them.

Eighteen percent of the last 100 visits to McHenry County Blog ended up in an article about Kurt Milliman’s running for County Board in the 2008 Republican Party primary election. Milliman lost badly in the race in which Nick Provenzano and Mary Donner tied in winning with almost twice as many votes as Milliman and Jim Schlader.

The Northwest Herald’s research also reports Milliman lost a close race for Prairie Grove Village President the next spring.

The McHenry County Jail.

The Daily Herald, putting up a story over three hours after the NW Herald, reported Kim Smith being arrested for “two counts of obstructing justice, disorderly conduct and prostitution.”

Her husband Tim was charged with the murder, as well as “aggravated discharge of a firearm, pimping and pandering.”

They lived in unincorporated McHenry County on Doty Road, right down from Centegra’s Woodstock Hospital.

Both Smiths are incarcerated at the McHenry County Jail.

Gus Philpott has information about prior arrests for the Smiths.

Depositions in former Deputy Sheriff Zane Seipler’s wrongful termination suit are on-going. Scott Milliman is one of the people to be interviewed again.

Scott Milliman’s Brother Kurt Killed — 3 Comments

  1. The public should demand an explanation of the exclusive handed to the Northwest Herald. If the sheriff’s department wanted to release information before holding a press conference, then Zinke (where’s the sheriff? Minocqua?) could have set up a conference call with reporters and active bloggers in the county (Cal Skinner, Pete Gonigam, me, and patch.com editors) and released the information to all at the same time.

    In fact, such a teleconference arrangement should be established already.

    Or maybe the sheriff’s department should just buy the Northwest Herald.

  2. Does anybody else see a problem with the NWH not only getting public information first but that they do such a garbage job when they do get it?

    The reason they’re getting exclusives is because the sheriff knows they’ll do the bare minimum with it.

    The public should understand that the reason other bloggers, media, etc. aren’t covering these things like a glove is because there’s no cooperation coming from the sheriff’s office.

    I’ve seen that Patch reporter and editor covering these stories and the editor told me that he’s had to FOIA things that are getting handed to the NWH.
