WASHINGTON COUNTY, Indiana--Investigators said police were called at 4:30 a.m. Saturday morning by a woman telling them a man had broken into her home and raped her physically handicapped daughter.
According to when police arrived the man was gone but he left his clothing, which included his wallet with driver's license, on the bedroom floor of the victim.
Police said Miller had obtained information from the Census office to contact the family of the victim and one of the neighbors a week before the alleged sexual assault.
Police went to Miller's apartment with a search warrant and found him in bed asleep and nude.

Miller could not find his jeans, T-shirt or shoes he wore to the tavern. He also was unable to find his wallet.
Inside Miller's Geo Tracker were found panties and a pajama bottom that are the same brand the victim wears.
Miller is being held on a $150,000 full-cash bond. He was arraigned on Monday. reports Debbie Bishop, the neighbor of the victim said, "There’s no way to describe what I think about a person like that. It’s not even thinkable. There’s no way a person like her should be treated like that. It gives me chill bumps thinking about it.”
