According to the Cape & Islands District Attorney's Office, preliminary investigation suggests that the male was killed due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound and the female fatally overdosed.

Further investigation by the Massachusetts State Police Detective Unit also revealed that Miller was the roommate who lived in the residence in which the two deceased individuals were found.

After searching the property, investigators said they located materials used as precursor powders and materials consistent with making homemade explosives, approximately 75 grams of pressed fentanyl pills, white powder of suspected fentanyl, and approximately $50,000 cash.

The Cape & Islands District Attorney's Office filed a motion with the court to detain Miller as a danger to the community.

Miller was held without bail and is scheduled for a hearing in the Orleans District Court on April 10.
