Miller arrived home to find a rock, about the size of a baseball, had been thrown through a back sliding-glass door.

Miller declined an interview with News10 but said in a brief statement she didn't "want to speculate" about the possible motive.   She said "it was unfortunate it happened", and said she'd hold off on any other comments until an investigation was completed.
