Note: The following statement is from Goshen Police Chief Jose’ Miller

On Sunday, October 28th officers of the multi-jurisdictional homicide unit took into custody the man suspected of the home invasion and murder of James S. Miller

On October 9, 2011, shortly after 1:00am, Goshen Police officers were dispatched to the Miller home in reference to a burglary in progress. Upon arrival, officers located Mrs. Linda S. Miller inside the home. She had been severely injured. Mr James S. Miller was located in the driveway of their home. Mr. Miller had been fatally injured during the incident.

Since 2011, the Goshen Police Department has actively been investigating the Miller homicide; sifting through hundreds of tips, leads, and pieces of evidence. When the Elkhart County Homicide Unit formed, our administration assigned this open case to accompany Goshen Police Detective Nicholas McCloughen when he joined the unit. The continued investigation of this murder by this unit led officers to the arrest of Winston E. Corbett, 23 years of age, of Goshen.
We are hopeful that this arrest may now bring about some closure for the Miller family, friends, and our community and trust this arrest will assist in the healing process for those most affected.

Our department and Mayor Jeremy Stutsman would like to personally thank the Indiana State Police Detectives and forensic lab personnel, the Elkhart Police Department, the Elkhart County Prosecutor’s Office, the GPD personnel, the members of the Elkhart County Homicide Unit, and the community for their never-ending support during this lengthy investigation.
