Tim Miller, founder of Texas EquuSearch, won a default judgment in his 2014 wrongful death lawsuit filed against Clyde Edwin Hedrick. Galveston County judge Lonnie Cox granted Miller’s motion for default judgment on Monday and awarded him $21,020,000 in damages.
“I filed the wrongful death suit to let Clyde Hedrick know that, ‘Clyde, I’m still here, I am still here and I’m not going to quit until the day I die,’” Miller said after the hearing. “I want to let Clyde know that I know what you did to my daughter and I’m not going to let you rest until we have you were you need to be for the rest of your life.”
Miller said he has evidence that Hedrick is responsible for the murder of his daughter Laura, who disappeared in 1984 and was found in 1986, in what has become known as the ‘Killing Fields.’
“As time goes by and the more information I get and, the more information I am continuing to get, I have no doubt in my mind Clyde Hedrick is responsible for Laura’s murder,” said Miller. “A lot of the evidence we brought forward we don’t want to talk about now because we don’t want to interfere in the (criminal) investigation.”
Hedrick has never been criminally charged with Laura Miller’s murder.
“We did reach out to Clyde on several occasions and invite him to tell his side of the story and tell him there was an opportunity to do that and he wasn’t interested,” said Miller’s attorney, Curt Hesse.
“Did he not respond or did he just say, ‘no?’” asked KPRC 2 Investigator Robert Arnold.
“No, he responded and he said, ‘no,’ unequivocally,” said Hesse.
“No, he responded and he said, ‘no,’ unequivocally,” said Hesse.[ad_2]
