Neighbors of Frazier Glenn Cross describe him as aloof, full of hate

MARIONVILLE, Mo. - Glenn Miller's home is in between Aurora and Marionville, Mo., where he lives with his wife.

Miller, legally known as Frazier Glenn Cross, Jr., was arrested Sunday near the scenes of the shootings at the Jewish Community Center and Village Shalom, both in Overland Park, Kan.

Two women who had keys to the home arrived while 41 Action News were there, but had no comment.

In town, people described Miller as an outsider who was very vocal about his beliefs. They called him dangerous way before the shootings in Overland Park.

Vincent Jennings hasn't lived in Marionville long, but he knew of Miller before moving here.

"He was very aloof. Sometimes see him at the library or post office sending out literature," Jennings said.

Patrons at the library in Marionville can find the book Miller wrote called, “A White Man Speaks Out.”

The 288 pages are full of his views on Jewish and African Americans. Miller mentions in the book that 75 percent of it was written while he was in prison between 1987 and 1990.

The last paragraph in his book he writes,

"If I fall bury me in the Old Miller Graveyard near Dillon, South Carolina, in my patriot uniform with my arm raised in the White Power Salute."

Jennings tried to read it just to get into the mind of man he calls "odd."

"His hatred of Jews is just mind blowing. People have the right, the constitutional right to freedom of speech to believe what they want, but when they go a step further, like Mr. Miller did and kill three people in Kansas City that's crossing the line," Jennings said.

Newly-elected Marionville Mayor Dan Clevenger said the majority of people who live here do not agree with Miller's beliefs.

"He had a lot of hate built up inside of him. Every time he came down here... I don't believe that," Mayor Clevenger said.
