Police hoping national attention will bring new details to cold case

A popular tv show is spotlighting one of Kentuckiana's unsolved murders.

A crew from "America's Most Wanted" has been in Clark County for the past several days.

Police say it was a brutal murder, but after several years the leads are no longer coming in and the case has gone cold. But police are hoping this national attention will change that.

The suspect is known as Juan Delarosa or Raul Cruz to police. Clark County Sheriff's detectives have been looking for him for several years.

"At one point we tracked him to Chicago and actually different places in the United States and possibly back to Mexico," said Detective Major Donnie Bowyer, Clark County Sheriff's office.

In May of 2005, police say Cruz beat 36-year-old Ronald Miller to death on a horse farm in Borden, Indiana.

That's why police really want to find Cruz. But after four years, the case has gone cold. That help could come from the popular tv show "America's Most Wanted."

Producers from the show are in town to profile the murder for an upcoming episode and believe it could lead to an arrest. And people who knew the victim and suspect hope that national exposure will help lead to an arrest.

"He needs to be caught and punished," said Joe Nolot, who knew the victim.

Producers from "America's Most Wanted" found out about the case after a family member sent in a letter.

The show profiling this case is expected to air sometime before the end of the summer.
