Feds called in to investigate Mica Miller’s death after it was ruled a suicide; she was found with a gunshot wound to the head in Lumberton


In a surprising twist, the feds have been called in to help the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office delve into the tragic passing of 30-year-old Mica Miller. Mica, who had recently initiated divorce proceedings against her abusive spouse, Pastor John-Paul Miller of Solid Rock Ministries in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, found herself at the center of a perplexing case.

Initially labeled as a ‘suicide’ by a Medical Examiner in Lumberton, North Carolina, the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office stood by this determination. However, a recent announcement from the department disclosed that, due to new findings and jurisdictional considerations, they had enlisted the help of the FBI in their inquiry.

Mica’s personal journal chronicled her harrowing experiences in an abusive marriage. Shockingly, it was revealed that John-Paul had sent a malevolent email to Mica prior to her demise, expressing his desire to inflict harm.

Court records unveiled a disturbing pattern of behavior by John-Paul Miller, including manipulation tactics that began long before their marriage, such as orchestrating Mica’s involuntary hospitalization. Additionally, allegations surfaced of John-Paul’s infidelity with underage church members while still married to his first wife.

In a poignant affidavit submitted by Mica’s family, they painted a chilling portrait of John-Paul Miller as a ‘wolf in sheep’s clothing’ and a ‘false prophet’, particularly to those who truly knew him.

In a email sent by John-Paul to Mica back in November 2022, he confessed his unconventional approach to dealing with hurt feelings: “when someone hurts me, I try to hurt them back rather than forgive.” This revelation was brought to light in an affidavit submitted by Mica’s brother, Nathaniel Francis, on May 2.

John-Paul candidly admitted to Mica that instead of extending forgiveness, his go-to response was to “just attack and try to cause pain.”

Fast forward to October 2023, Mica decided to pull the plug on her marriage to John-Paul, citing “adultery” as the reason for divorce. The court documents revealed Mica’s belief that her husband was involved in extramarital affairs with women known to him.

In her divorce filing, Mica also detailed the various forms of abuse she endured at the hands of John-Paul, including emotional, sexual, spiritual, financial, and physical mistreatment.

“He has harassed me physically and electronically with letters, phone calls, emails, and texts, hacking my emails, hacking my personal Facebook, and impersonating me. Using my stolen phone to send texts and emails out to church members pretending to be me, texting friends and family saying that I am sleeping with teenagers from our church, and showing up in person at places around town … To having installed 3 different tracking devices on my vehicle,” Mica wrote.

Following Mica’s passing, John-Paul disclosed that he made four visits to his late wife’s remains at a morgue and attempted to “resurrect her” during a 20-minute eulogy delivered at her funeral service on May 5. This account was captured in a video posted by the church online on May 11.

“Each time it still didn’t hit me, I thought she was going to wake up — I even tried to raise her from the dead one time this week,” he said.

John-Paul thought he saw a woman who looked like his deceased wife at a wall and called out her name, “Mica,” but later realized it was actually one of her sisters.

“I thought I raised her from the dead… I can’t wait to see her again one day,” he said.

According to a report by FOX Carolina on May 7, Robeson County dispatch received a 911 call from a woman who purportedly made suicide threats and inquired about the possibility of her phone being traced by her family. The woman disconnected the call, and despite efforts by the dispatcher to reach her, her whereabouts were identified in the vicinity of Lumber River State Park in Lumberton on April 27.

State Park Rangers found a black Honda Accord that belonged to Miller in a parking lot. Inside the car, they discovered a Sig Sauer gun case on the passenger seat, a box of ammunition in the center console, and a receipt for the gun dated the same day as Miller’s death.

Another 911 call reported a body and a Sig Sauer 9mm handgun, with a serial number matching the gun box found in the Accord, in the water at the park. Miller’s phone and belongings were also found at the scene. This new information was revealed amidst suspicions of John-Paul’s involvement in his wife’s death, with Mica’s sister publicly stating that she had warned her about him on multiple occasions.

Police mentioned that the pastor was seen traveling on Highway 17 in Horry County on the day of his wife’s death.
