Arizona lake ‘electrocution incident’ kills 2 brothers, girlfriend left with ‘burn marks’ on feet, legs


Two brothers have died and a girlfriend of one was left with burn marks after a possible electrocution at a lake in Arizona, officials and family members revealed Monday.

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office said at a news conference that 53-year-old Timothy Miller and his brother, 50-year-old Michael Miller, were out with their girlfriend and wife on a boat over the weekend at Lake Pleasant, located north of Phoenix.

Around 6:30 p.m. on Sunday when the boat was docked at the Scorpion Bay Marina, Timothy jumped into the water “for an unknown reason” and experienced what is believed to be some type of electrical current in the water, according to Sgt. Joaquin Enriquez.

“This is a complex case because not only are we dealing with the issue of the drowning but we’re dealing possible electrical current, it’s what’s being described by the witnesses on scene who were in the water,” he said.
