The Sinner and the Saint, Derrick Griffin and Kristopher Miller

Kristopher Miller
In season two, The Sinner and the Saint is about the murder of Kristopher Miller by Derrick Griffin in the state of Minnesota. The love story of Kristopher Miller and Kim Griffin does not end well for Kristopher Miller as Derrick Griffin shoots him to death. Kim and Derrick were divorcing when she decided to date Kristopher, a mutual friend. That decision pushed Derrick over the edge.

Derrick Griffin was sentenced to Life and is not eligible for release. Both families are devastated as they have been friends for fifty years and are both suffering a loss (link below).This episode is described as A romance is cut short when a man is gunned down at his home; a chilling tale of jealousy and vengeance.

His appeal (see link) includes:
On the night of May 10, 2011, Kristopher Miller was shot to death on the front porch of his home in Minneapolis. At the time of his death, Miller was in a romantic relationship with Griffin's wife, Kim. Prior to the murder, Griffin had discovered sexually explicit text messages on Kim's cell phone and thought Kim was seeing someone who worked at the Elks Club, which is located on Plymouth Avenue in North Minneapolis. On the evening of May 10, 2011, Kim was at the Elks Club with a group that included Miller; Miller's sister, L.M.; and L.M.'s boyfriend, L.B. When the group left the Elks Club at 11:15 p.m., they saw a white four-door Cadillac sedan parked across the street from the front door of the club. After seeing the vehicle, Kim said to the group “[l]ook at my husband over there, stalking me again.” L.M. and L.B. also noticed the white four-door Cadillac but were unable to see if the vehicle was occupied and could not later identify the Cadillac specifically as Griffin's vehicle. After Kim's comment, Miller walked Kim to her car, gave her a hug, got into his truck, and drove away toward his home. L.M. and L.B. also left and none of the witnesses saw the Cadillac move.
Miller's home was “a couple blocks away” from the Elks Club. Three of Miller's neighbors heard gunshots at approximately 11:30 p.m., and two of the neighbors called 911. The same two neighbors saw a light colored large sedan similar to a Cadillac backing down Irving Avenue, the street on which Miller lived. Shortly thereafter, Miller was found dead on the front porch of his duplex. Miller died from multiple gunshot wounds to the back

Take Away

While Kristopher Miller is dead, and Derrick Griffin is serving Life, there are lessons here for anyone willing to it a thought. Break ups are hard for everyone. Don't insert yourself into mutual friends break ups. Yes the spouse that leaves will date and possibly marry, but in the beginning at least this is salt in the wound. Avoid this choice.
