Affidavit unsealed in Michael homicide investigation in Howland



Published: Thu, January 2, 2014 @ 10:35 a.m.

HOWLAND — When Howland police and the daughter of Laura Michael arrived at the house Michael and her brother, Bradley Milligan, shared on Howland Springs Road on Dec. 18, the daughter noticed her mother’s purse and cigarette tobacco were still in the house, raising serious doubts about the story Milligan had told police earlier.

Milligan, 48, who is charged with killing Michael, his sister, told police just after they arrived that day that Michael had left the home several days earlier in her car and had not returned.

“Her mother would not have left these items at the house,” Michael’s daughter, Katina, told Sgt. Jeff Urso privately.

A short time later, Urso found Michael’s body wrapped in a blanket in a locked downstairs room. The 51-year-old woman had been beaten and cut in her face and neck.

These details were contained in an affidavit unsealed today by Judge Ronald Rice of Trumbull County Common Pleas Court.

The affidavit was written by Howland police in support of a search warrant asking to be allowed to test Milligan and items found at the house for DNA. The judge granted the request.
