Nephew of Saugus missing man arrested on murder charges


The nephew of a man who disappeared three years ago has been arrested by homicide detectives, according to Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station arrest logs.

Daniel Cierzan, 24, was arrested on July 31 on suspicion of murder, according to the arrest logs.

His uncle, William John Cierzan, 58, had disappeared on Jan. 26, 2017, from his home near the intersection of Seco Canyon Road and Bouquet Canyon Road. Blood had been found outside the home and detectives believed an assault had occurred.

When his uncle’s wife, Linda Cierzan, returned home a little later that morning, she found no sign of her husband but located a prepared dinner, his jacket, his credit cards and money in his wallet.

In February of this year, homicide detectives had been spotted outside of the uncle’s Saugus home where they began searching and conducting fresh tests.

“Investigators from the (Los Angeles County) sheriff’s crime lab are back inside the Cierzan residence conducting an exam in search for additional evidence,” Detective Ralph Hernandez said on the sidewalk in front of the home on Cuatro Milpas Street.
