November 04, 2010
WOLFEBORO — Roberta Miller, known to her many friends in the Wolfeboro area as Bobbie, was found dead in her new home on Country Club Road in Gilford on Monday evening, Nov. 1.
The death was reportedly discovered by her son Johnny, who then called 911 and was present when rescue teams responded. By 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning, Nov. 2, the State Police Major Crimes Unit had arrived at the scene.
New Hampshire Attorney General Michael A. Delany and police are asking for neighbors or anyone who knew Miller's whereabouts and activities for the days preceding the discovery of the body to call New Hampshire State Police headquarters at 223-4381.
Miller is the former wife of Gary Miller, who owned Miller Auto in Wolfeboro, the Miller Superstore in Tamworth and Miller Ford in Sanford, Maine. The couple recently completed a lengthy divorce process, during which the Miller Auto dealership was sold to Tom Trites and Scot Kinville and the Tamworth and Sanford dealerships were closed.
Bobbie Miller purchased the Gilford modular home on Aug. 16 of this year and as of last Friday, Oct. 29, had transferred the ownership of the property to a trust. Friends described her as upbeat recently, saying she was going back to school and restarting her life. In addition to her son Johnny, she had a daughter Jennifer, who currently lives in California.
As of press time there are many unconfirmed reports and unanswered questions surrounding her death. Police have declined to give more information until an autopsy is completed, but have described the death as "suspicious." There are unconfirmed reports that gunshots were involved and that Miller's dog was found dead as well on the scene.
