Community remembers Goshen College professor killed one year ago

Tuesday, October 9th marks the 1st anniversary of the murder of Goshen College Professor James Miller. 

Miller was killed last year when his home was broken into by an unknown person.  James' wife Linda managed to call 911 during the ordeal, as her husband was also being attacked by the intruder.  Police found them both badly injured minutes later.  James died at the scene. 

A year later, a remembrance ceremony was held on the Goshen College campus.

A bench was dedicated in Jim Miller's honor by the classes of 1962 and 2012.

Linda Miller says she still believes police will find the attacker.  She says she's been working closely with detectives and believes they're working hard to solve the case.

But she says she's more concerned about her family, than the man who committed the crime.

"For me, I am hoping to heal. I still have a lot of pain in my heart. There is still pain in my life. I'm hoping for healing for my kids. Those are the things I hope for, for the most. For joy to return to our household, for there to be more laughter," says Linda Miller.

Goshen police say they're doing DNA testing on evidence taken from the scene and they're still reviewing about 100 leads that have come from the public.

If you have any information regarding this case or the suspect composite, please contact the Goshen City Police Department (8am-5pm), our dispatching center (24hrs) 533-4151, police@goshencity.com, or the Michiana Crime Stoppers at 1-800-342-STOP or 288-STOP.

    Councilman Derek Dieter calls for clearer Council policy on medical leave

    Officials say South Bend Common Councilman Henry Davis, Jr. is midway through his first week on medical leave, but the specifics of why he's out are unclear. He hasn't spoken publicly. Instead, all we have to go on is an email he sent the council president saying he needs to concentrate on his health. His request came a little over a week after his DUI arrest.
