PHOENIX -- Phoenix police investigating the cold case murders of two women more than 20 years ago need help from the public.

They're trying to track down some property associated with Bryan Miller, 42, who was taken into custody Jan. 13 and accused of killing Angelo Brosso, 22, and Melanie Bernas, 17, a little less than a year apart in the early 1990s.

According to Silent Witness detectives, officers are trying to locate any storage units, rental facilities or security boxes associated with Miller.

Both victims had gone for bike rides and the bicycles haven't been found.

Police spent considerable time collecting evidence at Miller's home after he was taken into custody.

Miller has described himself as a "zombie hunter" and has a decommissioned police car that he reportedly took to various festivals and conventions.

He was booked into jail on two counts of premeditated first-degree murder, two counts of kidnapping and one count of sexual assault. He is being held without bail.

Miller faces a preliminary hearing on Friday.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or 480-TESTIGO. People can also call Silent Witness detectives toll free at 1-800-343-TIPS. Calls will remain anonymous.

Another way to leave a message is to head to the website silentwitness.org.
