It is being investigated as a suspicious death.

"Every time we saw her, you know, going down the driveway she'd wave and probably saw her like once a month," a neighbor said.

The last time they saw Miller and her husband was on Saturday.

Officials said her husband is the one who discovered her body in the water and called 911.

Two days later, Miller was found dead in the national forest.
