Threatening texts 'from pastor' who announced wife's suicide to shocked congregation exposed

One of Mica Miller's sisters has shared abusive messages allegedly sent by the pastor in 2022

Warning: This article contains discussion of suicide and abusive behavior which some readers may find distressing.

Mica Miller's sister has shared abusive messages allegedly sent by her pastor husband who announced her passing during a service.

On 28 April, during a service at Solid Rock Church in South Carolina, pastor John-Paul Miller shared the news of his wife Mica Miller's passing.

On 27 April, 2024, Mica was found in Lumber River State Park in Orrum, North Carolina with a gunshot wound to the head.

Miller announced Mica's passing as 'self-induced' and Robeson County Medical Examiner, Dr Richard Johnson, confirmed the gunshot wound as being 'self-inflicted'.

Robeson County Sheriff Burnis Wilkins said the evidence was 'quite clear and compelling,' as per Julie Roys.

A 911 call was made by Mica moments before her passing also pointed to her death being a result of 'suicide'.

Prior to her passing, Mica was reportedly in the process of formally separating from her husband, with court records showing her having filed for divorce for the first time in October 2023, withdrawing it in February, 2024 but then Miller filing against her for Separate Support and Maintenance, as per Mail Online.

With Mica herself having taken to social media in the weeks prior to her death speaking out about abuse, one of her sisters, Sierra Francis, has since taken to TikTok to share a series of threatening messages allegedly sent by Miller in an incident in 2022.

A TikTok compilation video uploaded to account @justiceformica on Friday (10 May) shows screenshots of multiple conversations over message on a phone.

One user seemingly identifies themselves as being 'Pastor JP Miller at Solid Rock' and on 16 November, 2022 at 9:38pm, the user says they are 'otw to your house'.

Despite the other user - seemingly Francis - saying they 'don't want any drama' and agreed to Mica 'coming for a visit [...] alone,' the user replies they're 'three hours away' and 'armed' and 'ready'.

Brown then tells the user if they come, the cops 'will be here waiting' and urges them to 'stay home they don't need to be involved'.

Another screenshot of messages, allegedly from the pastor, show him seemingly directing his words to Mica.

A series of messages reflect on 'one bad decision' and how the user wishes they 'could turn back time' reflecting on the pair having 'the GREATEST marriage in the world,' asking the pair seek counselling and saying they 'desperately want a child'.

"I'm scared of divorce or putting the child thru things like this where u leave and aren't willing to do whatever it takes," the messages continue.

Another message - over iMessage - shows a user saying their 'blood is on u' to the recipient.

"I couldn't take it without u," they added.

"All u had to do was come home to me. But you couldn't do it. I'm done."

The user tells the contact they 'love' them and are 'sorry'.

But then on 17 November, 2022, other messages read: "F**king b***h tried to get me arrested. Every single piece of everything Mica owns or has any part is in the back of my truck. Ask her where she wants it."

And the final screenshot shows a message reading: "You'll never find another man who loves u enough to do whatever it takes. After u treat him the way u treated me."

Robeson County Sheriff Burnis Wilkins said Monday (13 May): "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."

Miller's attorney Russell Long has said in a statement: "Following the untimely death of Mica Miller, unfounded rumors and false accusations began circulating on social media and in various media outlets, suggesting Pastor Miller’s involvement in her demise. This created a buzz, causing local and national media outlets to begin proliferating these falsehoods, on a mammoth proportion.

"Our client refutes any report that suggests he ever abused his wife. Recent reports claim that Pastor Miller 'groomed' his wife from the age of 10-years-old couldn’t be farther from the truth."

UNILAD has contacted Robeson County Sheriff's Office and John-Paul Miller's representatives for comment.
