William Scott Miller

Police Continue to Investigate Year Old Homicide

Detectives from Fairfax County Police Department Major Crimes Bureau continue to investigate the death a year ago of William Scott Miller of Groveton. Detectives determined that the last time family or friends heard from William was on Friday, Sept. 25, 2020. Three days later, a family member went to his apartment to check on him. 

Miller lived in the apartment by himself. He was found in his bedroom with multiple stab wounds to the upper body. There was no apparent forced entry into the apartment, and it did not appear that anything was taken.

A year ago, police said: “Officers responded shortly after 12 noon to the 6500 block of Tower Drive after a family member found 52-year-old William Scott Miller, deceased, inside an apartment he rented. Trauma was present to his upper body and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will conduct an autopsy to determine the exact cause and manner of death.”

Detectives continue to process evidence recovered from the scene to include using M-Vac, a technology that extracts DNA from surfaces. Detectives would like to speak to anyone with information about this case. Tipsters are asked to contact the Fairfax County Police Department Major Crimes Bureau at 703-246-7800, option 2.
