CORRECTION May 18: We pulled Mica Miller vs. John-Paul Miller, Solid Rock (defendants) Separate Support and Maintenance Case filed by Attorney Regina Ward.

As Mandy Powers Norrell correctly points out on X

It looks like it was originally in more names than just JP Miller (the et al designation), and then in 2020, he bought out the others’ interests for $34K and the deed was then created to concentrate the property in his name alone. You’d have to pull the deed to know who the other et al is.

As you can also see below this X post by Robbie Harvey:

Ixchel responds:

If JP owns other properties like Solid Rock, the new land and Crocodile Rocks and a store of some kind Plus any other those also are assets to be considered in the Divorce which she would get 50% most likely. So yes JP would have had to split 50% and take a financial hit. Mica would have eventually be fine if not very well off financially in time but I’m not sure she understood that

Mandy Powers Norrell responds

That’s not the case if he owned those assets before they were married. Those would likely be non-marital assets and not subject to equitable division.

Ixchel responds:

He was hiding assets every which way I’m sure. What he didn’t understand was he was so horrible to live with she left with nothing and would have been happy to just get out of Free and ALIVE.

As the pending June 5th court case, filed by Attorney Ward on behalf of the family is in play, it is clear that the assets do matter to Mica’s family.

JP Miller Home is worth $366,500 today, but he supposedly paid $34,500 for his portion of it on November 17, 2020

KEY QUESTION: Was Miller an et al when Cote purchased the home for $188,000 in 2016? We have yet to determine this information.

John-Paul and Mica Miller were married in 2017. If John-Paul was a part of Cote’s et al in 2016, then he would have entered the marriage with $34,500 in equity pre-existing the marriage by one year. In all of my years of purchasing real estate, I have never partnered in a business relationship for purchasing a primary residence.

Such are the twists and turns that define all things JP Miller. He certainly was concerned enough to move the assets

Regardless, the picture of what Mica Miller knew before her death is now coming more clearly into focus. Mica Miller kept a detailed daily diary.

For those not following this story, Mica Miller was found dead at Lumber River State Park on April 27th. She died under the most suspicious circumstances in what Robeson County ruled a suicide. The FBI is now investigating.

During the peak of a Myrtle Beach real estate bull market, JP Miller was somehow able to buy a nice home at 246 Cold Water Circle in Myrtle Beach for $34,500.00.

On Dec. 15, 2023, Miller transferred the home to Solid Rock Ministries for a sale price of $169,331.31. The house is currently valued at $366,500.00 and remains in the church’s name. Miller also owns Solid Rock Church and all of its holdings.

A $199,500 private mortgage is held on the home, however, by GSCH Investments, LLC. The agent for the LLC is David Potter. GSCH Investments, LLC was dissolved on Feb. 16, 2023.

Pulling J.P. Miller’s home records, caused MyrtleBeachSC News to investigate all things financial Solid Rock Church. We are certain the FBI is doing likewise. It is an eye opening journey we plan to take our readers on.

As the church’s myriad of financial entanglements are unraveling, MyrtleBeachSC News has questions:

  • Why would Ronald James Cote, et al sell a newly built home in 2016 to JP Miller for $34,500 at the height of a real estate bull market? Was cash involved? Was the total sale kept off the books? *(see Mandy Powers Norrell‘s explanation above)
  • What happened, or was about to happen, that caused Miller to move the home into Solid Rock’s name on Dec. 15, 2023? Was Miller working to move his home out of his name because of an upcoming divorce?
  • What business mind helped Miller orchestrate financial moves like this and others we have uncovered related to Solid Rock Church?
  • Was an accountant involved?
  • Was a lawyer involved?

Please note, we have highlighted previously that Miller owns businesses in Horry County where customers pay in cash disproportionately. Are the cash purchases on those sales being reported to the IRS? Or are they being diverted into tithes, mission donations, and offerings? Only the FBI will know for sure, first.

Other direct Solid Rock Church Financial issues are abundant

For example, during the same real estate bull market, why did Burroughs and Chapin deed Salem Woods Holding, LLC (for $0) the land purchased by Solid Rock Church, on August 24, 2023, that the church plans to build on? Did B&C and Salem Woods Holdings do a land swap? Perhaps.

But why did Salem Woods Holdings, LLC sell the land, valued at $788,500 for $610,000 to Solid Rock Church in 2023? Once, again, was cash involved or was the price discounted during a bull market?

We will be reporting on this tomorrow, Saturday, May 18th.

Salem Woods Holdings, LLC is also dissolved. It appears it was dissolved around July 6, 2023. The registered agent was Mark A. Nappier.
