Indiana State Police are being asked for help in solving the slaying of a northern Indiana college professor during a home invasion.

Nearly two years after Goshen College professor James Miller died, local police have enlisted the assistance of the state police cold case unit to review all the details and information in the case.

The Goshen News reports Goshen Police Chief Wade Branson announced the state police involvement in the case Friday.

The 58-year-old Miller, a father of three, died from multiple blunt force and sharp force injuries on Oct. 9, 2011. Police have said his body was found on the street by his mailbox. The intruder first attacked his wife, Linda Miller, but James Miller came to her aid, and she was able to call 911.
