The Robeson County Sheriff’s Office shared earlier this week that it has requested the assistance of the United States Attorney’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on the investigation into Mica Miller’s death, which authorities determined to be a suicide.

“The Robeson County Sheriff’s Office has been in contact with the United States Attorney’s Office and Federal Bureau of Investigation in South Carolina since the early stages of the Mica Miller investigation,” the Sheriff’s Office said. “Based on the information gathered during the investigation and jurisdiction reasons, the Sheriff’s Office has requested the assistance of both agencies. No other information will be released at this time.”

Mica (30) was the wife of John-Paul Miller (44), the founding pastor of Solid Rock at Market Common church in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

On April 28, a day after his wife was found dead at Lumber River State Park in North Carolina, Miller made the shocking announcement at the conclusion of his Sunday sermon that Mica had died by suicide.

“We’re not going to do altar call today,” Miller told the congregation. “Instead, I’m going to have you stand up and I’m going to make an announcement. And after the announcement I’m going to ask that you leave church quietly and don’t talk about the announcement here in the building.”

In the time since Miller made the announcement, Mica’s family and friends have been using social media to question why Mica would have taken her own life and have been disclosing information about the pastor’s character and the couple’s marriage. They even started the hashtag #justiceformica, which has gone viral.

In the days to follow, Miller told The Christian Post that Mica had been diagnosed with “bipolar II, schizophrenic and dependent personality disorder.”

Mica and Miller were married in 2017, when Mica was 21, after an adulterous affair with each other. Miller performed the wedding ceremony for Mica’s first marriage.

After Mica’s death, it was revealed that she had filed for divorce and had a no contact order against her husband. Less than 48 hours later, investigators said she took her own life.

Last week, Miller’s lawyer released a statement threatening to sue anyone spreading “falsehoods” about Miller, including allegations that he groomed Mica when she was a minor and abused her during their marriage.
