Goshen College Professor remembered after one year anniversary of brutal attack

It was one year ago that a Goshen College professor was brutally killed in his home.

Friends and family are remembering him as more than a victim of a violent crime.

A remembrance ceremony was held at Goshen College on Tuesday afternoon.

A bench and landscaping were installed in Miller's memory on campus. A couple of students spoke about the impact the professor had on their lives.

“This is just a reminder that bad things can happen to good people and it's unfortunate there's so little we can do about that,” says one of Miller’s students, Indigo Miller. “(It’s) just remembering he is a good person and his memory is still good.”

He taught at Goshen for more than 30 years and was passionate about teaching.

His wife, Linda, says she tries to remember the life she had with her husband and not the horrible night they were attacked.

“I think for us it's more of… someone came into our house and did horrible things. How do you get over that?” asks Linda Miller. “I am in grief group. I have a tremendous faith in God. I am not going to give up on this. We are going to return to some part of normalcy.”

Linda miller says she asked for extra police patrols this weekend after experiencing too many reminders from last year.

Goshen Police haven't made any arrests and continue to follow any leads.
