Family of Mica Miller Demands Further Investigation Amidst Controversy Surrounding Her Death


The family of Mica Miller is urging for further investigations into her death, which occurred while she was in the process of divorcing her husband, John-Paul Miller, a South Carolina pastor.

In April, Mica Miller was discovered dead from a gunshot wound. Although authorities ruled it as a suicide, concerning details have emerged surrounding her marriage, divorce, and numerous reports to the police regarding her estranged husband’s behavior.

Since the announcement of Mica Miller’s alleged suicide, there has been significant speculation about her husband and the reported abuse she endured before finalizing her divorce.

Her sisters emphasized to Truth Voices the necessity of a more thorough examination of Mica Miller’s demise.

“There were definitely bruises on Mica’s hands that the medical examiner had no recollection of, and I did ask him personally is there any chance that a body would have bruises on it from [being] collected from the water or someone touching her after examining her?” said her sister, Anna Francis.

Francis recounted that according to the medical examiner, there was no possibility of post-mortem bruising. This prompted the family to take on an investigative role themselves due to perceived negligence in the investigation by Robeson County.

While the FBI acknowledged contact from the Robeson County sheriff, they refrained from verifying any potential investigation per agency protocol.

Last Sunday, several friends and community members convened in front of Solid Rock Church, founded by John-Paul Miller, to advocate for “Justice for Mica,” and raise awareness about domestic violence and abuse.

After images surfaced of John-Paul Miller wearing his late wife’s diamond necklace, questions were raised. When asked, Miller stated that the necklace was a means of feeling close to Mica, as it was given to him at the hospital upon identifying her body.

However, Mica Miller’s sister, Destinee Barrientos, contested that interpretation, suggesting that the necklace symbolized a more sinister motive. Barrientos implied that the possession of the necklace was a form of control and a reminder of Mica’s failed attempt to escape.

The divorce and estate proceedings of Mica and John-Paul Miller are scheduled for Wednesday in family court in Horry County, South Carolina.
