Detectives said during the search they found evidence in the home connecting Miller to a homicide investigation launched yesterday after a homeowner found a dead body inside of a garbage can along Cemetery Road in Wilmer.

However, before detectives had a chance to question Miller, he allegedly attempted suicide and is reportedly in a coma at a local hospital.
