Treasure Hunters Roadshow pledges to help murdered professor's family
GOSHEN, Ind. — This week, Treasure Hunters Roadshow is in Goshen again this week to buy gold, silver, antiques and other collectibles. Business managers have pledged to donate money from every transaction to a fund to benefit the family of slain Goshen College professor James Miller.
Professor Miller was killed in a home invasion in the early morning hours of Oct. 9 and his wife, Linda, was hurt in the attack. Goshen police continue to investigate the incident, but say they have no suspects so far.
Roadshow Show Manager Jeff Hunter said that when he read about the murder of Professor Miller, the company decided to do something to help.
The business will give a minimum of $5 transaction and $10 for every gold and silver purchases. Hunter says the roadshow officials will deliver a check to a fund at Interra Credit Union at the end of the week to benefit the Miller family. The show buyers are set up at the Goshen Courtyard Hotel every day this week from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Hunter says buyers are interested in seeing sports memorabilia from before 1970 and coins pre-1970. Silver coins and currency in general are hot ticket items these days. For more information on what to bring to the Roadshow, click here.
