Suspect in Kenosha custard stand murder reportedly admits to crime

A suspect in the murder of a Kenosha custard stand employee has reportedly admitted the crime to a cell mate.

WTMJ TV in Milwaukee obtained a search warrant that quoted Julian Miller, 28, as saying "I popped the dudes."

Robert Wilde, 18, was killed, and his 43-year-old manager was wounded in a July 26 robbery at Shirl's Drive-In, a popular custard stand in Kenosha.

The manager survived. The cell mate was quoted as saying Miller scared the victims and he shot them as they were going out the restaurant's back door.

Police said two men entered the restaurant's back door near closing time, shot the men, and left with cash.

Four female employees were unharmed. One was quoted in the warrant as saying the gunman kept asking where the money was and Wilde said he didn't know.

The warrant also said officers found a .32-caliber gun in a Dumpster behind the restaurant, and the bullets matched those found at the murder scene.

Miller and Daniel Gonzalez are being held for violating past probations, and they have not been charged in the murder.

A third person is being sought for questioning.
