Police say they have made an arrest in the murder of 70-year-old Annie Miller in 2020

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) – Greenville police say that they have made an arrest in a 2020 murder that was once deemed a “cold case.”

On December 9, 2020 the body of 70-year-old Annie Miller was found just after noon at her Ridge Place home in Greenville. Although the place was eventually deemed a cold case, police say that detectives continued to work to develop leads in the case.

Detectives say that they used interviews and forensic evidence to develop 28-year-old Raheed Johnson of Snow Hill as a suspect in the case. They also said that Johnson and Miller knew each other.

Police say that as a result of that work, Johnson was arrested in Goldsboro on December 21, by the North Carolina Violent Criminal Apprehension Team who coordinated the arrest with the Goldsboro Police Department.

Johnson was charged with murder and is being held at the Pitt County Jail with no bond.
