The pastor husband of a woman from South Carolina who took her own life after enduring years of mistreatment and alleged grooming when she was young gave a heartfelt 'eulogy' for her, expressing that he attempted to revive her after she passed away.

During a 20-minute speech at his Solid Rock Church in Myrtle Beach, John Paul Miller mentioned that he visited Mica Miller’s body on four separate occasions after she was discovered deceased from a self-inflicted gunshot at a North Carolina state park on April 27, according to the New York Post.

“Each time it still didn’t hit me, I thought she was going to wake up — I even tried to bring her back to life at one point this week,” he informed mourners at a service to 'celebrate her life'.

In October, Mica Miller filed for divorce, requested a no-contact order shortly before her passing, and had informed authorities, relatives, and friends that her 44-year-old husband was abusive and controlling, and had “groomed” her at his church from the time she was 10 until they wed 14 years later, based on a previous report from CrimeOnline. As has been reported before by CrimeOnline.

Miller was in Charleston, South Carolina, with another woman he was romantically involved with when Mica Miller purchased a gun, drove to a North Carolina state park, and took her own life, according to information from the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office.

Recently, his legal representative sent a letter demanding that the media refrain from reporting what Mica Miller had stated about him and their relationship, warning of potential legal consequences. He explicitly refuted her claims of grooming, which were made in a police report earlier in the year after she was hospitalized and he took her car and purse. Authorities did not address her stolen vehicle report or the claims of grooming, pointing out that they were still legally married.

Police provided the same reason for not taking action when Mica Miller reported four instances of tracking devices being attached to her car earlier in the year. Those reports were made on March 11, March 14, March 26, and April 15, as per WBTW. In the initial occurrence, she also mentioned that the tires on her car had been slashed. Technicians located the GPS tracking device while repairing the tire.

Following her passing, her brother stated in an affidavit in Probate Court that Mica Miller had forwarded him an email from her estranged husband in which he apologized for the “tires and causing damage to her vehicle.”

John Paul Miller asserted that his wife dealt with mental health problems. In the letter in which legal action was threatened, his legal representative stated that the claims “made by her in the recent past are nonsensical.”

In his 'eulogy,' the husband who was separated shed tears and mentioned that he had called out 'Mica' to a woman who resembled her at the mall, only to find out that it was her sister.

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

“If I had 10 hours it wouldn’t be enough to tell you all the great things about her,” he added.

Close friends and family suspected that the pastor had some involvement in his wife’s passing, but a thorough investigation by the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office in North Carolina cleared him of any direct involvement since he was elsewhere with his girlfriend, based on a report from CrimeOnline. She was seen on video leaving her home on April 27 and purchasing a gun from a pawn shop in Myrtle Beach before driving to Lumber River State Park.

There, she dialed 911 and inquired if they could locate her cell phone, explaining to the operator that she was 'about to kill myself' and wanted to ensure her family could find her. Deputies sent to the location were not able to reach her in time. A nearby fisherman reported hearing someone crying moments before a gunshot.
