Von Miller’s name appears on the witness list for a murder case

Miller AP

Just when the litany of off-field issues regarding seemingly mild-mannered Broncos linebacker Von Miller seems to be as odd it can get, it gets a little odder.

According to 9news.com, Miller’s name appears on a witness list in a quintuple-murder case.

Miller faces no accusations of wrongdoing.  He is listed as someone who could testify about the “prior events” and “attire” of Dexter Lewis, who is charged with killing five people last October inside Fero’s Bar and Grill.  Miller is identified as a “possible acquaintance” of a friend of Lewis.

The Broncos told 9news.com that the team is aware of the possibility that Miller will testify.  The Broncos have been told Miller had no direct involvement in the murders.

Still, for a guy who not long ago could boast launching a poultry empire as his biggest quirk, things have gotten very unusual very quickly for Miller.

    Thank God I’m a Redskins fan. We only have outstanding, character rich individuals who just happen to dominate on the gridiron. #HTTR

    Stay classy Donkeys

    Denver- most cheaters in the league
    Denver- most drunks in the league

    …and if all that isn’t enough to deal with, he is suffering premature hair loss from the steroids.

  4. bucrightoff says: Aug 19, 2013 8:53 PM

    What a total gong show of an offseason.

  5. doe22us says: Aug 19, 2013 8:53 PM

    Weird the NFL gets weirder by the minute, must be those dorky glasses.

  6. rbanks51 says: Aug 19, 2013 8:54 PM

    Usually murderers named Dexter are better at covering it up.

  7. davikes says: Aug 19, 2013 8:55 PM

    One way or another everyone in the NFL is two or three degrees from a mass murderer. Hope I’m further away than that. Von is having a baaaad month.

  8. thegreatgabbert says: Aug 19, 2013 8:55 PM

    Von noticed nothing unusual about Lewis’ attire and behavior on the night in question. As always Dexter was dressed in a full SWAT uniform and having fun scaring people by pointing one of his guns at them.

  9. tencharge says: Aug 19, 2013 8:56 PM

    What a loser.

  10. ballboy48 says: Aug 19, 2013 8:58 PM

    When are some of these idiots going to learn that they need to leave the good behind them.

  11. ballboy48 says: Aug 19, 2013 8:59 PM

    *hood

  12. nodindenver says: Aug 19, 2013 9:00 PM

    Like the Energizer Bunny; Von’s trials and tribulations just get wackier and wackier! He has lost millions in the last month and should have just made it rain in the “scrip” clubs like Pacman.

  13. fdugrad says: Aug 19, 2013 9:00 PM

    So, this player will in a very short time be completely away from the structure of his team for at least SIX WEEKS?! I say “at least,” because if he fails just ONE urine screening ( much less whatever OTHER mischief he embraces ), he will be gone for at least a whole YEAR! Uneasy rests the head of Mr. Elway, and the rest of the front office, both for the short AND long-term future of this young, immature man.

  14. dlbpatsfan says: Aug 19, 2013 9:02 PM

    This is how the Hernandez thing started, “he isn’t involved, they just want to see what he knows”.
    And so it begins…

  15. fryeways says: Aug 19, 2013 9:06 PM

    As a Pats fan who just watched Hernandez go down, COME ON, people. Von is guilty of being able to provide testimony. If you’ve ever witnessed an auto accident, you’re guilty, too.

  16. cincybert says: Aug 19, 2013 9:08 PM

    Good luck trying to get testimony about the prior events and attire of a defendant named Lewis in a murder trial.

  17. taintedsaints2009 says: Aug 19, 2013 9:09 PM

    As I have said many times, the broncos will be in the afc championship game no matter what. The afc has no competition except New England and baltimore. The afc is so incredibly uncompetitive now it’s just pathetic.

  18. 619sdfan4life says: Aug 19, 2013 9:13 PM

    What a bumb…. Can we say release, try and save face. I said it once and ill say it again. We need a PFL (Prison Football League) they would have a beast team. Chad Johnson, Hernandez, Von Miller, I would bet my left you know what Ryan Leaf would love to play in it. OJ Simpson could coach the team

    At the end of the year instead of the pro bowl we have the Pride bowl. NFL all stars vs Prison stars.

  19. ohiogator says: Aug 19, 2013 9:14 PM

    He makes the whizzinator look bad!

  20. fdugrad says: Aug 19, 2013 9:21 PM

    SHEEZ! Just read an article in Denver Post forecasting possible loss of 1.3 million if Miller is gone for FOUR weeks. Anyone know estimate of SIX weeks?

  21. kane337 says: Aug 19, 2013 9:24 PM

    Oh snap!

  22. datmilehighswagistoodamnhigh says: Aug 19, 2013 9:25 PM

    Dang my dude has some bad luck. 6 game suspension cuz a lab tech cant do his job, then just cuz he maybe said hi to a guy who knows the murder, he gets dragged into a murder case, no wonder he forgot to pay his traffic tickets. Welker, Bailey, Wolfe, and Bradley all go down for a couple weeks, Ronnie Hillman suck, the only RB who showed promise gets hurt in CJ Anderson. And we gotta face a hungry dumervil and a ravens team tryinna prove that last year wasn’t a ray lewis gimmick. Its sounds like its gonna a tough month or 2 but hey at least Von will be rested for a mid to late season run. Maybe this adversity adds a greater sense of urgency for the team.

  23. aaroncurryisbust says: Aug 19, 2013 9:25 PM

    In before Aaron Hernandez has him assassinated.

  24. westchiefs5 says: Aug 19, 2013 9:27 PM

    Ah yes, I remember when I read on PFT that Aaron Hernandez was not a suspect in a murder case. He printed it out and has it posted in his cell.

  25. themagicman1223 says: Aug 19, 2013 9:31 PM

    Just read up on the murder case from a Denver website, freaking disgusting. I sometimes can’t believe the type of monsters who are roaming the streets.

  26. vette200 says: Aug 19, 2013 9:32 PM

    Von Miller launched a poultry empire…but it sounds like he’s really plucked now!

  27. racerx1225 says: Aug 19, 2013 9:47 PM

    Uneasy time for Denver because they are in Dumberville after losing Dumervil. They may have no pass rush this year in comparison to last. As a Raider fan, I am very happy.

  28. raiderapologist says: Aug 19, 2013 9:49 PM

    Miller should have ample time to testify if the trial starts this fall. This is what Elway gets for marrying a former Raider cheerleader.

  29. pastabelly101 says: Aug 19, 2013 9:50 PM

    WELLLKERR!!!!!!

  30. UPYRS says: Aug 19, 2013 9:52 PM

    Was the guy who was shot Von’s molly source?

  31. banger60 says: Aug 19, 2013 9:54 PM

    Another piece of crap GANGSTA!

  32. phillyphever says: Aug 19, 2013 10:06 PM

    For Miller sake, he better only be a witness, unlike the last murder case involving a player.

  33. nflcrimerankingscom says: Aug 19, 2013 10:12 PM

    Denver in the lead so far this year

  34. mackcarrington says: Aug 19, 2013 10:20 PM

    “Fero’s Bar & Grill”. I bet Peyton Manning doesn’t go there looking for a good time.

  35. mrlynch33 says: Aug 19, 2013 10:29 PM

    And the hits just keep on coming…

  36. nomoreseasontix says: Aug 19, 2013 10:48 PM

    Why do I get the feeling that this guy is going to be done sooner than later?

  37. kreplachistan says: Aug 19, 2013 10:58 PM

    Poultry Empire?

    As in, “Los Pollos Hermanos”?

  38. pr0phat69 says: Aug 19, 2013 11:07 PM

    Call me a looser but I am NOT working my dream job but yet I have managed to not do one of the following; Fail a drug test, miss a court date, get arrested, or be a witness in a death penalty case ( mind you it is the first one one 13 years for Colorado)….. Blame who you want but a eff up is an eff up. Be an adult and stop blaming others for your lack of common sense. Any other job he would have been fired after the first bad ” whizz quiz” !

  39. justintuckrule says: Aug 19, 2013 11:15 PM

    What chicken empire was this dude starting up? Los Pollos hermanos?

  40. hendeeze says: Aug 19, 2013 11:16 PM

    Poultry Empire, and accusations of meth? Who does he think he is? Gustavo Fring?

  45. gallaghedj311 says: Aug 19, 2013 11:54 PM

    Denver has the most cheaters in the league? I think u wanna look towards New England….

  46. medullaamendola says: Aug 19, 2013 11:57 PM

    And people thought the Pats were having a rough offseason… jeez

  47. tigershark49 says: Aug 19, 2013 11:58 PM

    Instead of going through all the extreme measures to
    hide your roid use, try the extreme measure of just
    getting off roids.

  48. thestrategyexpert says: Aug 20, 2013 12:01 AM

    And they didn’t think Hard Knocks was a good idea. I guess they called that one right.

  49. swaggyy says: Aug 20, 2013 12:03 AM

    Logicalvoice what players are you referring to? None of them dominate

  50. stevent92 says: Aug 20, 2013 12:28 AM

    Next we’ll find out that Von Miller single-handedly collapsed the economy of Cambodia.

  51. jamesmcv72 says: Aug 20, 2013 12:34 AM

    The hits just keep coming. This is enough to drive the Broncos front office to drink…..

    Oh yeah, guess that already happened.

  52. bstarrkicksfavresass says: Aug 20, 2013 12:47 AM

    How do you spell loser……….”Von”! eieio!!

  53. maximusprime107 says: Aug 20, 2013 1:28 AM

    The comments on this site are so frustrating. He’s a WITNESS, he DIDN’T commit the crime

  54. edelmanfanclub says: Aug 20, 2013 1:50 AM

    Miller is a great football player, but just because you’re very athletic doesn’t mean you’re a good person. IE: Aaron Hernandez (who used to be my favorite player), Ahmad Brooks, Ray Lewis, etc. The list varies from morons to actual killers. In this case, Miller is simply a witness, not a suspect, so please don’t blow out of proportion. It still doesn’t excuse his behavior or show he doesn’t deserve at least a 6 gm suspension.

  55. overweightman says: Aug 20, 2013 2:15 AM

    Aldon Smith, the better draft pick.

  56. lanman11 says: Aug 20, 2013 3:40 AM

    No wonder everyone in the front office is snot slingin’ drunk all the time.

  57. dbfan4ever says: Aug 20, 2013 3:56 AM

    So he can identify what clothes that a murderer was wearing I guess that makes him guilty of the murder too! UNREAL! SMH!

  58. joetoronto says: Aug 20, 2013 4:13 AM

    What a hot mess in Denver, no wonder management are all drunks.

  59. rodneyharrisonstruckstick says: Aug 20, 2013 4:31 AM

    I still cannot fathom why these guys still hang out with the absolute scum of the earth while they make millions of dollars playing a sport for work. You cant just have a family and be happy knowing your more fortunite than 95 percent of the world?

    You deserve the same as the scum you hang with. ESPECIALLY if your an overpaid athelete. Shall I dare say “entertainer”. All of them alike. If the street cred is still so important to them then take back their fortune’s and give them back their street lives. Tired of hearing about this rubbish.

  60. vuudu says: Aug 20, 2013 5:15 AM

    Will the real Gus Fring please stand up please stand up.

  61. jetsoptimist says: Aug 20, 2013 7:02 AM

    Maybe the 6-8 game suspension was really “witness protection” and now his name is out there as a “witness”. A “quintuple” murder case wow!

  62. keepounding1234 says: Aug 20, 2013 7:05 AM

    The guy witnessed a murder. He didn’t do anything wrong. The people on this board remind me of a lynch mob.

  63. metitometin says: Aug 20, 2013 7:25 AM

    You mean other teams than the Patriots cheat the system? I thought only the Patriots had illegal players. Next to the Broncos, the Patriots look like choir boys.

  64. pilot2011 says: Aug 20, 2013 9:07 AM

    logicalvoice, you can ask any Baylor fan, Bob Griffin is a little snake in the grass. So it should be no surprise that he cheats on his wife.

    so yea, your precious redskins “outstanding character” theory is just wrong.
