Deputy Sheriff Clyde Sears was shot and killed while responding to a domestic disturbance.

Deputy Sears had taken the day off due to an illness but had responded to the call because the sheriff was out of town and the suspect was known to him. When he arrived at the scene, the suspect told him to come inside. As he did so, the suspect shot him in the abdomen, killing him.

The suspect was convicted of murdering Deputy Sears and sentenced to life in prison.

Deputy Sears had served with the Bacon County Sheriff's Office for one year. He was survived by his wife, daughter, parents, and four sisters.

I still miss you daddy more than ever. So much has happened in my life you were not here with me to share it with but I know in my heart your watching over me my children and beautiful grandchildren. I will find out why you were taken from us one way or another. I deserve to know and our family along with the community deserves to know what kind of people were running the town. Just give me a little more time and it will tell everyone the truth. I promise daddy. We all deserve to know.
