Murders[change | change source]

He was arrested for the 2002 murder of 22-year-old Jeremiah Miller, who was one of Dozier's drug associates. On April 18, 2002, Miller met Dozier on the Las Vegas Strip. Dozier had promised to help Miller buy ephedrine. Miller had brought $12,000 in cash for that express purpose. Upon Miller's arrival at La Concha, Dozier killed him (likely by shooting), sawed Miller's body into multiple pieces, stuffed most of them into a suitcase, and disposed of it near an apartment complex in western Vegas.[1]

Dozier was also connected to the July 27, 2001, murder of Jasen Green in Arizona, whose remains were found in a plastic container in the desert north of Phoenix.

On June 19, 2018, a judge signed a new death warrant for Dozier, allowing his execution to take place in July 2018.[2][3]

Death[change | change source]

Dozier died on January 5, 2019 at prison in Ely, Nevada after having committed suicide by hanging himself in his prison cell, aged 48.[4]
