North Carolina authorities are reportedly investigating the death of Mica Miller, the 30-year-old wife of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Pastor John-Paul Miller.

Robeson County officers reportedly located Miller’s body on April 27 in the Lumber River State Park — about an hour drive from the Millers’ hometown of Myrtle Beach —  last weekend and are investigating how she died, according to ABC 15.

John-Paul, however, told his congregation that his wife died by suicide and that she had struggled with her mental health for years, but authorities have not released her official cause of death.

“She had struggled with suicide before. Each time we would help her through it and take her to the doctor, and we got through it and everything was fine,” John-Paul told ABC 15. “She even gave a few testimonies here at church that we have on video. She battled suicide but God took care of her and got her through it.”

An obituary for Miller states that the 30-year-old woman was “energetic, affirming, adventurous, faithful, loving, giving, forgiving, talented, joyous, creative, assertive, bold, determined, authoritative, passionate, hardworking, a risk taker, and so much more.”

However, Mica’s loved ones on social media are noting one part of the obituary that strikes them as odd: “She would praise her husband after every church service telling him he was the best preacher in the world (even if it wasn’t true). She also told him he was the funniest preacher in the world (even though that wasn’t true either). Mica loved her family soooooooo much.”

The Horry County Clerk’s Office in South Carolina confirmed to Fox News Digital that Mica Miller had filed three different “separate support and maintenance” requests since last year — the latest filed on April 16. Separate support and maintenance allows one spouse to receive court-ordered support from another spouse without officially divorcing.

Since Mica’s death, which has rocked the Myrtle Beach community, her family and friends have been sharing posts on social media with the hashtag, “JusticeforMica.”

Her sister pleaded with friends on social media to “not listen to false stories being shared about” Mica.

“Mica was a God-fearing, joyful, loving woman who did not deserve the abuse she endured. If you hear anything about this from anyone other than her family please question it, reach out to her siblings or parents,” she wrote.

“I talked to her multiple times in her final week here on earth,” Mica’s friend wrote on Facebook. “She was making plans to get her hair cut, getting help with her car payment because she was a little short after PAYING HER DIVORCE LAWYER and planning to meet us for the second service at church on Sunday. My final text with her on Friday at 9:19 pm was a woman making plans to live!!!! What happened between Friday night and Saturday?”
