Pulitzer Prize winner dead at 76
MIAMI -- Former Miami Herald reporter and editor Gene Miller, who won two Pulitzer Prizes for stories that led to the release of four people wrongly convicted of murder, died Friday at his home. He was 76.
Miller had suffered from cancer, his family told the Herald for a story posted on its Web site. He worked at the Herald for 48 years, retiring in 2001.
His first Pulitzer was in 1967 for two investigations that freed prisoners Joe Shea and Mary Katherin Hampton, who were convicted of separate murders they did not commit.
He won his second Pulitzer in 1976 after eight years of reporting about the case of Freddie Pitts and Wilbert Lee. state Attorney General Robert Shevin and Gov.
