State police are seeking the public's help as they continue to investigate allegations of sexual misconduct by University of Connecticut music professor Robert Miller.

Detectives from the Eastern District Major Crime say the investigation into Miller's alleged interaction with young boys has yielded useful information and that they are seeking additional witnesses, according to state police spokesman Lt. Paul Vance.

Anyone with information is asked to call the detectives at (860) 896-3233.

Miller, 66, of Mansfield, who had worked at the university since 1982, was placed on paid administrative leave and banned from campus on June 21 after allegations surfaced that he had a history of having sex with young boys and had inappropriate contact with university students.

Miller, who served as the head of the music department, has not been charged with any crimes, but campus and state police in Connecticut and police in Virginia are investigating.

Attorney General George Jepsen announced earlier this week that the state has retained the Philadephia-based Drinker, Biddle & Reath, a law firm experienced in sexual misconduct cases, to investigate hwo the University handled information it received as early as 2006 about Miller.
