El Dorado County Sheriff's Office Needs Assistance in Locating the Next of Kin


By: El Dorado County Sheriff's Office

Patricia and Joan Miller in their twenties.
March 5, 2012 - The El Dorado County Sheriff's Office needs assistance in locating the next of kin of two elderly twins, Patricia and Joan Miller (73 years of age). Patricia and Joan were discovered deceased in their South Lake Tahoe residence on February 26, 2012. A definitive cause of death has not been determined, however, foul play has been ruled out. The cause and manner of death is still being investigated by detectives from the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office and South Lake Tahoe Police Department.

While the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office does not routinely release the names of deceased individuals without first contacting the next of kin, this case is unique.

Sheriff's detectives have been unable to locate any relatives of Patricia and Joan Miller and are appealing to the public for help. With the assistance of long time friends and acquaintances, detectives have learned the following:

Patricia and Joan Miller were entertainers in the bay area. They regularly appeared on a weekly television show called "The Hoffman Hayride" in the 1950's. They also entertained troops at several military bases.

Their parents were heavily involved in their entertainment business. Their mother played the piano for them.

Patricia and Joan Miller were originally from Portland, Oregon. Patricia and Joan reportedly never married. They were nearly always dependent on one another their entire lives.

Information surfaced indicating The Millers might have living relatives in the Portland area, but detectives have not been able to confirm this information.

Anyone with information regarding the Patricia and Joan Miller is asked to contact Detective Matt Harwood at 530-573-3015.
