Medical Examiner’s Findings in Mica Miller’s Death

When someone suffers a gunshot wound above the ear, death can occur swiftly. This type of injury often inflicts severe damage on critical brain structures, leading to immediate loss of consciousness and vital functions.

According to ABC Columbia’s detailed medical examiner’s report, Mica died from a gunshot wound. The entry wound was about 4 1/2 inches from the midline of her head. Additionally, the exit wound was on the opposite side. The autopsy showed no signs of physical struggle at the scene. The report indicates multiple casings, with her body submerged 100 feet away from them.

Witness Account and Discovery

MSN reported that a fisherman heard cries followed by a gunshot at the park. He discovered Mica Miller’s belongings, which included a Bible, her driver’s license, and $500 in what looked like a fanny pack. Despite this discovery, the fisherman did not immediately find her body.

Analysis and Considerations for Mica Miller’s Death

The circumstances surrounding Mica Miller’s death, as described in these articles, raise questions. If she died from a single self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head above the ear, one would expect death to be quick. However, finding her body submerged in a river 100 feet from the casings suggests possible movement after death.

The presence of the body in the river and the distance from the casings could indicate factors like currents or post-mortem circumstances. It’s crucial for law enforcement and medical examiners to thoroughly investigate to understand the sequence of events leading to her death accurately.

The discovery of multiple casings at the scene complicates the investigation. While self-inflicted gunshot wounds typically involve one shot, multiple cases could imply different scenarios. Factors such as firearm testing or previous use may be relevant. The report that the witness heard crying and a gunshot also raises questions about the number of casings found.
