As a result, the woman told Loop News Tuesday, Miller sought to save his life by fleeing to other countries.
She said that this is how he ended up in The Bahamas where he’s now in custody awaiting deportation after entering the island illegally.
“They can’t kill him. I’m a strong believer in God and I believe that God is on his side,” the woman said.
"He has done nothing wrong. All he was trying to do was move away from where he was being constantly targeted for no reason," she said.
The family member said that Miller left because he felt he was being blamed for many of the crimes in and around St Catherine.
Miller himself told Loop News in his first media interview that lies were being told on him. He, however, he declined to give specifics of the lies.
An ongoing battle for complete control of the Clansman gang, and areas over which the gang holds sway in and around Spanish Town, has resulted in the loss of several lives, including that of Miller’s brother Craig, in 2015.
The infighting started while Miller was behind bars on gun and murder charges but he beat all those cases, either through appeal or acquittal at trial.
Miller fled Jamaica to the United States after he was freed of gun and robbery charges by the Court of Appeal in March 2013.
He served a prison term there following his conviction in 2014 for illegally entering the country before being deported to Jamaica in March 2016.
Months after his return to the island, Miller was asked to turn in himself to the authorities after he was listed as a person of interest by Jamaica's Counter Terrorism and Organised Crime Investigation Branch (C-TOC).
He was asked to turn in himself so he could assist the police’s probe of crimes within the gang’s sphere of influence.
He, however, didn’t comply with the request, and fell off the radar until Loop News reported Tuesday that he was being held in The Bahamas.
He was set to be deported to Jamaica Tuesday but the move was postponed because of security concerns.
Jamaican police were unable to say when he will now be returned to the island.
On Tuesday Miller’s family member told Loop News that he’s lived in an upstanding way in the countries he entered illegally.
"If you should check the records, he has never broken any laws in any of the countries where he was deported from,” she said. “The only thing he did wrong was to enter the countries illegally."
