WASHINGTON, D.C. - Daniel William Hiers, Jr., a former Charleston, South Carolina, police officer, is accused of molesting a 10-year-old child for months in 2003 and 2004. On November 24, 2004, Mr. Hiers, 32, was arrested for committing lewd acts on a child under the age of 16, and was immediately suspended from the police force. The Dorchester County, South Carolina Sheriff’s Department eventually filed new charges against Mr. Hiers for first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor. On March 15, 2005, Mr. Hiers failed to meet his lawyer, and surrender himself at the sheriff’s department. Mr. Hiers shot his 24-year-old wife, Ludimila, in the head, and several witnesses observed him leave the house. On March 31, 2005, the Goose Creek, SC Police Department obtained an arrest warrant for Hiers, alleging that he murdered his wife.
“It is especially abhorrent when individuals sworn to uphold the law commit such crimes. We will remain focused on seeing that this fugitive is brought to justice,” said Marshals Service Director Benigno Reyna.
