SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — A longtime white supremacist from rural Missouri was arrested Sunday and held on a charge of premeditated first-degree murder in connection with a shooting spree in Kansas that killed three people at a Jewish community center and a Jewish retirement home.
Frazier Glenn Cross, 73 — known in Aurora, Mo., as Frazier Glenn Miller — was arrested at 1:28 p.m. and was booked into the Johnson County, Kan., jail in Olathe at 8:48 p.m. CT, according to the booking report.
Before being driven off to jail, Miller began ranting while in police custody, police said. A TV news video shows the suspect yelling what appears to be “Heil Hitler!” from the backseat of a police car.
The shootings at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City, in Overland Park, Kan., and at Village Shalom, a retirement home nearby, occurred on the eve of Passover, a holiday significant in Judaism.
