Agencies Step Up Efforts To Find Answers In Molly Miller Disappearance

Posted: Updated:
WILSON, Oklahoma -

A private investigator hired by the family of missing teenager Molly Miller is speaking out. Meanwhile, federal and state law enforcement agencies are investigating the “possible homicides” of Miller and Colt Haynes. Neither have been seen or heard from since July 8, 2013.

“My belief is that it's a simple homicide. I believe a fight ensued,” says Philip Klein, private investigator. “I believe both young people were shot and killed. I believe they were drug up to the top of a hill. I believe they were buried somewhere out there near Long Hollow Road.”

Philip Klein tells News 9 that new witnesses are coming forward daily with tips. The constant flow of new information is allowing his team to make quick progress and turn findings over to law enforcement. Klein warns people not to jump to conclusions about law enforcement investigators and the slow progress that was being made before the last couple of months.

“Everyone was lying because everyone was trying to protect Conn Nipp. And you know, that's what started this thing.”

Nipp is last person investigators believe was with Miller and Haynes. Cell phone data and witness accounts place Miller and Haynes in a car driven by Nipp. Nipp allegedly took police on a high-speed chase that investigators believe ended near his family's Long Hollow Road property in Love County.

Klein believes Nipp has the answers about what happened after that chase.

“Conn needs to talk…and I think Conn…will eventually talk,” said Klein.

During the last three days, people in Love County told News 9 that state and federal investigators searched several areas near the Nipp property along Long Hollow Rd.

Klein's team also recovered possible weapons including a "machete" and "9mm semi-automatic pistol" after witnesses tipped them off.

“If you know something call someone and it's going to take just that one person with that little bit of information that's going to send this case into the prosecutorial phase.”

Klein also praised the work of Oklahoma Highway Patrol investigators. Tuesday, Nipp was sentenced to 10 years in prison for taking OHP troopers on a chance in January 2014, five months after Miller and Haynes went missing. He is scheduled for trial in August for the first chase where Miller and Haynes were allegedly passengers.
