HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla — The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office (HCSO) is investigating recent allegations of domestic violence made against its detective Daniel Leyden.
Law enforcement says Leyden killed HCSO Deputy Abigail Bieber on Saturday in St. Augustine and then killed himself. Now a woman is coming forward on social media, alleging Leyden abused her when they were dating several years ago. And that she informed the sheriff’s office but they failed to act.
In a statement, HCSO told the “No one, regardless of their occupation, is above the law. Domestic violence, rape, or abuse of any kind is never acceptable at the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, and we hold our employees to an even higher standard than that of the citizens we are sworn to protect and serve.” Adding that the recent allegations made against Leyden are “deeply concerning” and are being investigated
