VAN WERT — Van Wert County Sheriff Stan D. Owens announced on Tuesday a $5,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the persons involved in the March 18, 2012, Daniel Hemker home invasion.
“I have had a man assigned full-time to the Hemker case since it happened,” said Van Wert Sheriff Stan Owens. “We just need some fresh information to get it resolved.”
This incident occurred on Dog Creek Rd. during the midnight hour of March 18, when Hemker was awakened by two masked male intruders. The intruders proceeded to stab Hemker and take him from his residence. Hemker was secured in his 1990 Honda Accord which was then driven to the Middle Point Quarry where it was steered into the cold water.
