To clarify, it is not 100% a Deathmiller but it is a Psuedo-Deathmiller mechanic. I will be flipping something other than Town-Aligned on my death, much like AS. I cannot confirm one way or another that either my flip is not the True Scum Alignment this game, and I assume AS' flavor is similar, hence shorthanding it to a Deathmiller.

Why aren't you revealing the alignment you would flip as, then?

You can vote me out without too much headache, sure, but since we're at:

-AS claiming PGO death miller, name drops two other players, Mona and BK.

-Mona head nods confirmation that the role makes sense, which is a hell of a coincidence.

-AS suggests they'd cop as town (despite being PGO?), which is a weird claim here because it seems to run contrary to a few things. It gives AS information as to how cops investigate, which isn't necessarily the biggest thing, but it also seems to run directly contrary to suggested flavor: I'm town because I'm a townsperson, I was out fishing when the mass death happened. AS isn't town because she doesn't live in the town. Considering there's an explicit town alignment and role, it seems incongruous with AS's claim here.

Correct. It is explicitly mentioned in the Role PM as to obfuscate my alignment, due to flavor of the town council being rife with corruption and nepotism, and thus not well trusted among the townsfolk.

This is why I felt it pertinent to reinforce that AS' claim, however unlikely, rang true, as it matches up almost word for word in non-PR mechanics to my own, except for "council" being switched with "wild". It is notably different from the sample PM, and as such I assume this is this game's Gimmick.

I think with no way to safely test her claim, and it only muddling discussion later in the game, that soda should be the candidate for the day.

BK came in saying he was fully intending to be active and post a lot, and then dropped off his posting significantly once role PMs came out. I'm somewhat inclined to think that he may have gotten a scum role and just Not Wanted To Deal. His posting is also fairly noncommittal and I dislike the follow up questions that he asked.
