Her death remains unsolved and her family has been haunted by the tragic end of her life. "We were a loving family," her father Roy Miller has said. "We had money. We did things. We went to Disney."

But despite the older Miller's recollection of his daughter, she had started to act out, running away from home at age 13 and dancing in topless bars by age 16.

Miller grew up in a loving family but went down the wrong path during her teenage years.

Rosebud, a six-episode true crime serial, was produced by the Boynton Beach Police Department and released last year. According to the BBPD, Rosebud "explores Vicky’s life and the days leading up to her death." Unable to provide answers or make any arrests in the case has weighed heavily on the department.

"It is our hope that this series will breathe new life into this investigation and that we can finally catch her killer," the police department website continues.

For Miller's heartbroken family, the podcast "definitely is hopeful," her sister Alexis, now 33, told People magazine in a recent interview. "Everything happened so long ago. To know the case is being looked at again, it feels unreal."
