Suspect named in 1992 murder

HOUSTON [SIGN UP: Get headlines and breaking news sent to you]

They're looking for a man who attacked an elderly woman, robbed her and left her tied up in her own home. She later died from her injuries.

It's taken 16 years, but authorities say they have identified the person who killed that elderly woman. The victim, Louvenia Wilson, was at her home on Vicksburg in August 1992 when police say two men forced their way into her home demanding cash at knifepoint.

The suspects then tied her up with duct tape and a phone cord and left her bound on the floor of her bedroom. She was found four days later, but she later died from her injuries.

Police did collect fingerprints, but at the time there was not a match -- that is, until earlier this year. Police ran the prints again, linking the murder to 32-year-old Bobby Miller. What makes the case unusual is that Miller was just 15 years old when the crime occurred.

Currently he is wanted on juvenile charges. Authorities say the victim's family wants nothing more than for Miller to be brought in. P> "We always hear the outcry from the family, you know, 'What happened to my loved one?' And I think it would mean a lot to have an idea what happened to them, first of all, and who did it. And they'd face the responsibility for having committed the act that they did," said Sgt. Mike Peters with the HPD Homicide Division.

Police say they have spoken to Miller as recently as a month ago. He denies being involved in the crime. Nevertheless, authorities have been unable to located him ever since.

Police believe he is living in the Channelview area near his family.

Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for information leading to Bobby Miller's arrest. Anyone with information on his whereabouts should call the 713-222-TIPS.
