No suspect in Miller murder caseby Everett J. Thomas
The Goshen (Ind.) Police Department has not arrested the person who killed Goshen College professor Jim Miller during a night-time home invasion on Oct. 9, 2011.
According to a Sept. 24 release, the case generated more than 100 tips and additional tips are still coming to the department through Crime Stoppers.
“The evidence collected over the three days following the attack,” the statement said, “is still being processed by the Indiana State Police Laboratory. The search for DNA must be done meticulously. Given the tremendous amount of evidence to inspect and test, it seems painfully slow for those of us waiting on the results.”

The Miller home was secured by the police department for three days after the murder while technicians pored over the scene and collected “an extraordinary amount of physical evidence,” the statement said.
The police department was called to the Miller home at 1 am on Oct. 9, 2011 where they first found Linda Miller, Jim’s wife, with severe injuries sustained in the attack.
The police then later found Jim Miller deceased in the driveway.
Goshen College will hold a vigil at the campus prayer labyrinth Oct. 9 beginning at 4:30 to mark the one-year anniversary of Miller’s death.
