Man with lengthy rap sheet killed Omro siblings in crash, sheriff says
VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. (WBAY) - A man with a lengthy criminal record caused the crash that killed two Omro siblings in Florida, according to the sheriff.
Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood identified Reginald Lamar Harris, 47, as the man “who murdered Danycka and Domynick Milis.”
Harris did not survive the crash. Chitwood says Harris’ record included 18 felony convictions, 20 misdemeanor convictions, and eight incarcerations. His driver’s license was revoked.
“Known to commit multiple felony robberies with a firearm, home invasion with a firearm, aggravated assault, grand theft and drug possession,” reads Chitwood’s post.
The crash happened Dec. 29, at about 7 p.m. The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office states Harris, a carjacking suspect, was fleeing authorities on I-95 in Volusia County when he made a U-Turn into the wrong direction of traffic. He struck the Milis’ vehicle head-on.
Danycka, 18, and Domynick, 21, died at the scene. The Milis family was on vacation in Florida at the time.
Passengers Kyley Larsen, 17, and Drake Milis, 13, were injured in the crash.
Harris also died at the scene.
Danycka and Domynick were graduates of Omro High School.
A candlelight vigil was held in Omro to honor the Milis siblings.
“These people are here for kids that made an impact, that everybody loved. It’s just amazing that everyone is here for these kids,” said Kara Larsen, the Milis’ aunt.
Those who knew Domynick and Danycka say they were active in sports, avid runners and basketball players.
“I played basketball with Danycka last year. Seeing her every single day during the basketball season and always seeing her smile and laugh when she walked into the court and gym,” said Alexis Semrow who is a Senior this year at Omro High School.
